I’m sharing my thoughts on the Lolita palette from the Kat Von D brand.
The palette everyone's been asking for is finally here! Lolita Eyeshadow Palette is inspired by our record-breaking, bestselling shade that works on truly everyone. It features 8 high-pigment, blendable matte shades inspired by Lolita’s rosy tones, and of course, it wouldn’t be complete without our original “Lolita” eyeshadow, which sold out in just a few hours when it debuted as a single shade.
The design of the palette is awesome! The shades and the lettering are so pleasant to look at. I can see that the brand’s creator is actually a tattoo artist. It’s always pleasant to hold this palette in my hands, let alone having it as a part of my eyeshadow collection.
“Lolita” was inspired by Kat’s love of Japanese Lolita fashion.
Made in the USA
You can buy it from Sephora or Kat’s official site.
The packaging looks like the palette but it doesn’t have those cut letters. But it has a lot of product info on the sides.
Also, it’s got painted shades there! So cute!
The palette is cardboard and soft to the touch. The back of it states the shades and other information as well. It’s really handy that I can throw the paper cover away and use just the palette with all the necessary info on it.
The palette also has a mirror. For me, it doesn’t play any significant role because I don’t use palette mirrors. But for many of you that might be an advantage, I think.
The entire palette is run in the pink and pink-ish colors. I’m not a fan of pink shades, though I still bought this palette because I love how these shades look on my eyes.
All the shades are matchy and matte.
Off-white lilac shade. It’s a little bit chalky. I have to pack it for the on-pan color payoff.
Pink, gorgeous and trouble-free shade. It’s soft and easy to pick up and apply.
Vinous, well-pigmented shade but still, it’s a tad falling out. It’s soft and easy to blend out.
Ash rose shade. It’s soft and actually the same in characteristics as the Besitos one.
Here’s the comparison with the swatches from the official website.
Muddy-pink warm-toned shade. It’s soft and maybe a little bit patchy while blending.
Pink-brick. It was supposed to be the heart of the palette, but I don’t find it outstanding. I don’t like it. This shade gave the namу not only to this palette but also to the entire collection. Well, interesting. But it still means that the shade is soft and nice to blend out.
Vinous, cool-toned shade. It’s soft and easy to apply. However, it is too chunky when I pick it up with a brush.
Dark vinous shade. In the swatches and pictures, it appears black but it’s deceitful. The texture is dry and requires packing. It’s better to dab it into the skin, so as to get the on-pan coverage.

The bottom line
The palette is beautiful and it’s a real working horse for me. If I want my makeup being quick and easy, I reach for it immediately. It’s nice to hold in my hands and I can’t even compare it with my favorite palettes from Colourpop which are like bursting if I grab them with an abrupt move.
soft touch palette
some shades are chunky
This is my first palette from the brand. Currently, I’m really pleased with it! However, I’m not planning to buy anything from them in the near future.
I haven’t heard any of the limited edition palettes being released and those palettes from the permanent collection don’t seem to be exciting for me.
I hope that you found my review informative!
