Here's a review on Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour in Sage.

PRICE: Around 36AUD
FROM: Sephora, Melbourne, Australia
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available at;


Matte eyeshadows can be a pain to use; after years of beauty blogging and coming across various matte eyeshadow from different brands, I how important a good formula is when it comes to choosing this type of eyeshadow; it just goes on smoother, better, and looks lovelier!

Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour is one of the best matte eyeshadow formulas I have tried and Sage is a wonderful formula for those with warm skin; if you're morena and looking for a good forest green matte eyeshadow, this palette has an amazing one!


Shade and Light Eye Contour contains four color- coordinated, highly pigmented shades in an all- matte finish. Designed to give eyes the perfect contour and complement eye colors. Available in four palettes.


Shade and Light Eye Contour comes in KVD's signature coffin palette; a bit dark in concept, but I like it. :)

L-R: Base, Color, Contour, Highlight

I read that Rust is the best- seller, but for a change I went for Sage; the forest green shadow caught my eye and since I'm on the hunt for a forest green shade that will look great on morena skin tone.


Contour- beige with a peach undertone. Great for neutralizing discolorations on the lids for the other shades to appear better and truer.

Color- forest green eyeshadow; great for adding contours on the eyes or for spicing up the look.

Contour- olive greige shade; great for a subtle contour and for deepening the eyes.

Highlight- off white; great for highlighting the brow bone.


Lid Wash- contour shade
Crease color- contour shade
Outer crease color- color shade
Brow bone and lower lid color- highlight color

These are some of the best matte eyeshadows I have tried! Consistency is smooth and silky, almost buttery; it's very easy to blend; they yield fallout, however, but only if you put a lot so build on your lids gradually. It has a staining effect so it's best for those with slightly oily lids, but I still suggest to use a primer to make it last longer. 

This palette did not fail me in my quest for a forest green eyeshadow that will look true on warm skin tone; the colors stay true on the skin as it is on the pan.

Overall, this is a great everyday palette; great for travel too because it has easy to wear shades that match almost any outfit or mood I have. Will advise to collect all the palettes? Not really; one is enough!

18 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I have yet to try any KVD palettes. I was very tempted to buy the rust palette but I feel like orange eye shadow is just a trend. I gave in with the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly palette. I ended up de-potting it and decluttered the orange shadows, only keeping the peanut butter shade. I've been lusting on KVD's Shade and Light palette, the original one. It just looks so beautiful! Waaah~

  2. Whoa it's so pretty most forest green eyeshadow I came across has shimmers in it...kind of surprising on my part that this one flat matte.

    1. Me too! Surprised but thankful that finally, I found a great matte forest green eyeshadow!

  3. Naakit ako sa packaging! Rock na rock e! 😍 astig! Haha. Ang gaganda nung shades. Agree po ako sayo madam ang versatile ng colors :) pwede kahit anong mood mo or sa kahit anong make up look :) no make up make up look or that smokey eyes make up look :) and dmo na dn need bumili pa ng madami sabi mo nga, "one is enough." dko na need iconvert ung price nya sa peso. Alam kong nakakalula ahaha. A must try palette! Ps. Love your make up look on the photo, as always ❤

    1. Super rak na rak ang packaging! Glad you loved the look! :D

  4. Minimal shades but so useful. I super like the packaging of KVD. I wish to have one. 😉😉

  5. The packaging reminds me of Vampire thingy lol, anyways this palette will not confuse me because it's not as overwhelming as other products. And it is nice too.

    1. Hahah yes! because packaging is coffin- inspired! :D

  6. I've read that KVD is really a bomb when it comes to pigmentation. I just wish that I have the guts to experiment with colors. Napaparanoid ako kasi I'm not good with putting on makeup kaya natatakot ako to play with colors. Always akong neutral shade. Can't do smokey eyes pa din until now 😂

    1. It is! I have a couple of KVD products and everything is pigmented, from foundation to lipstick! <3

  7. Whoa Kat Von D does it again! I'm really into the way you blend using this product. Everything fits right into place. Beautiful! Thanks for this, Ms. Martha! Perfect reference for make-up looks!

  8. wow, pang pro yan ah..d ko kaya ilagay ganyang shades kasi halata masyado, halata rin pagkakamali ko nyan hahaha...ganda grabe ng packaging ah!

  9. Ganda talaga ng packaging ng KatvonD at ang galing mo talaga mag make up ate martha! ❤
