Kat Von D Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette: Review and Swatches
Hey guys, happy Thursday, just one more day until Friday, whew! Well, good thing I have an awesome new palette from Kat Von D to review and swatch for y'all. The new limited edition Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette ($55 CAD) features twelve all new "celestial neutrals". This palette has the same format of the previous Monarch and Chrysalis shadow palettes, the shades are divided into four complementary quads. To see some more photos and swatches, click......

Packaging:
The Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette comes in a printed cardboard packaging. The lid features some very reflective planet shaped silver circles and radiating light rays. I noticed the shine dulls over time from handling, so that's a bit of a shame.
The inside features a large mirror. Each quad feature one larger all over shade and three smaller accent shades.

Formulation:
The overall color scheme of the palette is cool toned with lots of purples and taupes. Pretty much all the shades are spectacular, as is with all Kat Von D shadows. To see detailed descriptions and reviews of each shade, see the tables I organized below.

Wearing Lunacy all over the lid, Darkstar on the outer crease,
Gravitation on the inner corner and over Lunancy. Killing Moon is used as brow highlight.
Overall:
At first I really wasn't taken with the colors from the palette; the formulation is amazing as always but the colors seemed a bit too cool and boring but they are surprisingly wearable and flattering! The palette features a variety of finishes and there are so many everyday neutrals with a few accent colors for when you are feeling more colorful. All in all, this is a win for me; if you are planning to pick this up do it soon because it's limited edition!

Availability:
Kat Von D is available online and in stores at Sephora.
