Kat Von D Esperanza Eye Shadow Palette- First Impressions

January 28, 2014

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a fantastic day 🙂 I know I am! One of the reasons is that I was finally able to play around with Kat Von D’s Esperanza palette!

When I first saw this palette, there was absolutely no hesitation when deciding whether I was going to buy it or not. Mostly because of two main reasons. One: The title of the palette- Esperanza. That’s my middle name! And for those of you that don’t know, it means “Hope”! Aside from that, which already sold me, was when I discovered that the purple sparkly color was named “Selena”. Obviously this color is named after the late Tejano star Selena, since the outfit that she wore at her last big concert was this pretty, purple, sparkly dress. She was my hero growing up. I always wanted to be just like her due to her amazing voice and amazing personality! So that right there just deepened my NEED to have this palette!

I was able to swatch all of the colors on my arm today and they all looked so pretty. I was kind of short of time, so I was only able to create one quick look with it, which I will have pictured below all of my rambling. The colors blended easily, but they didn’t seem to stick to my eyes as easily as I think they should have. It took a bit of layering to get the intensity that I wanted. But who knows, this may have just been due to my rushing through things. I’m not going to give a full review of the product until I’ve had more time to play around with it, which will probably be at the end of this week, or sometime next week!

Anyway, just wanted to let you all know about this pretty little gem. I can’t wait to play around with it more and create several different looks! Until then, I will leave you all with the look that I created with it today.
