Kat von d - Chrysalis eyeshadow palette

My first Kat von D eyeshadow palette purchase and look using the colours. I love the Chrysalis for its jewel and grey tones. This palette is part of a duo release, along with the Monarch palette. The Monarch is very much suited to this seasons pantone colour. (Marsala) 

They say :

A captivating, cool-toned eyeshadow palette with a savvy composition of colors-three large base shades and nine transformative accent hues-for a spectrum of stunning eye looks.  From subtle to sultry, experience a rebirth of colour and explore endless eye looks with the Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette. 

Featuring cool-toned shades in an ingenious arrangement that gives you the biggest basics and the most accent hues, now you'll have the freedom to create your heart out without running out of the go-to colours  Relish in the luxurious texture of triple-milled powder, which picks up instantly and lays down with a one-sweep, full-coverage application. The patented Power Last™, long-wearing formula gives you buildable, from dawn-to-dusk drama, while an infusion of antioxidants including rose extract and vitamins A, C, and E all work to keep your eyelids hydrated and protected. 

Colours included :
 Lifelike (matte cream)
Lunar Lights (pearl gray)
Lucid (sparkle rose) 
 Hybrid Moments (matte deep purple)
 Mezzanine (sparkle violet)
Transition (pearl mauve)
Glasswing (matte caramel)
Melancholia (pearl silver)
Black Milk (matte gray)
 Graphic Nature (pearl charcoal)
Entombed (pearl blue)
Tornay (matte navy) 

Shades swatches from The Chrysalis :
Top left : Hybrid Moments, Mezzanine, Transition, Glasswing
Top right : Melancholia, Black Milk, Graphic Nature, Entombed, Tornay
Bottom centre : Lifelike, Lunar Lights, Lucid

Such beautiful pigmented swatches and they are full of options for looks. Unlike a usual palette with one choice of colours, is so different and breaks the mould. So perfect for travel and multiple looks. 

The look

So the look that i created was using black milk as the base and transition. Then using Mezzanine for the lid shade and mixed a little Melancholia in the centre of the lid. Then i blend this upwards towards my outer V and within the crease. My outer V colour is Hybrid Moments, I take a small amount to press on the lid and outer part of my crease. Using the brush I blended this to connect the crease space with my lid. Then taking a small brush to finish the look, I use Lucid under the brow to define and blend any rough edges. 

This look gives a beautiful duo-chrome effect of purple and silver. Its a beautiful look to the many i will be doing with this palette. The colours are easily blendable and so pigmented, that you dont need much at all. Fantastic palette and colours.
