As you can see, this is a beautiful palette with unique packaging. It’s completely different than anything else on the market, yet still, fits in with what’s trending.

So let’s talk the good, the bad, and the pigmented!

The Packaging

Obviously, this packaging is amazing.  The Saints & Sinners Palette has the most beautiful packaging I have seen to date. To be honest, I didn’t even care what was on the inside. LOL. I just wanted it.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette

I am blown away by the detail. The lettering and scrollwork are drawn by Kat Von D herself and is inspired by cathedral windows which are typically done in a gothic architecture style. The packaging definitely speaks to my inner architecture nerd. (I almost opted for a career in architecture) My father and brother both work in the fields as draftsmen, contractors and engineers so I grew up around building design and construction, My father specialized in churches while my brother did a lot of gothic architecture restoration so this hits a special place. I know it’s just a makeup palette but when you can tell someone put so much thought into it like Kat, it becomes art itself and can make you feel something just like any other piece of art.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette

The Saints & Sinners is a two-sided palette that opens like french doors. One side is the Saints side and the other is the Sinner side which features bolder shades. Kat’s holiday collection was done to tie into the rerelease of the Saints & Sinners perfume and in honor of the duality in ourselves.

The Saints side features soft romantic shades, where the Sinners side is bold and exciting shades.

The Breakdown

Let’s talk about these eyeshadows now, because they are bad ass!

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette

You have everything in this palette, from mattes, shimmers, metallics, and special effect glimmer shades. The colors are all very nuanced and different than most the palettes on the market. The shades are very dimensional, even the mattes have a unique undertone or something that sets them apart.

The shades were inspired by the colors you see in stained glass windows in churches and the kaleidoscope effect they have when light dances through them. If you have seen a church window in real life you know exactly what that means.

Saints

Here’s a look at the shades, Starting with the Saints sides.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette  - Absolution
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Absolution

Absolution is described as an Ivory with a gold super glimmer. It’s a shimmery ivory with a gold shift as the base but is packed with iridescent gold glitters. This packed over any shade in the palette adds a new dimension and finish to the shade. This one is fall out heavy and performs best over a sticky base like a glitter glue or applied with a wet brush.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - Worship
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Worship

Worship is one of my favorites. Described as a pearlescent eggplant. Its super pigmented but the finish is a restrained metallic, a true pearlized finish. It’s a rich deep grape that I didn’t know I was missing in my collection.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette  - Immaculate
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Immaculate

Immaculate is one the best green eyeshadows I have used. Described as a pearlescent olive. The finish is the same as Worship. It’s a rich incredibly pigmented olive green. This is one of the shades, I have been on the hunt for. Even though it’s super pigmented, Immaculate and Worship are easy to wear and don’t come off as “too much” on the eyes.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - Chalice
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Chalice

Chalice is another shade I am enjoying, at a glace it seems boring but on the lid, it looks beautiful. Described as a metallic antique bronze. It’s a very neutral bronze, not too warm or cool, or super deep. It’s a shade you would see in real life on an old piece hardware in a church. There are slight silver micro glitters throughout. It’s buttery smooth, pigmented and blends like a dream. Come to think of it, chalice is the perfect name because it’s the color of an antique chalice. Like Immaculate and Worship, this is a very wearable shade.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - Sacred Heart
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart is described as pearlescent coral. Another amazing shade, you can rock for day or night. It’s smooth and pigmented. Blends beautifully. The pearl finish is very soft.

Amen is a perfect base shade for me personally and browbone highlight. Described as a matte cream. It’s pigmented and smooth.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - Sanctuary

Sanctuary is described as pearlescent nude coffee. This, like Chalice, was an unexpected shade that I found myself loving.  It’s a rich almost purple-brown. Again, smooth and pigmented.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - Heaven

Heaven is named perfectly, this is a heavenly angelic shade. Described as a metallic silver but it’s more than just that. There is a warmth in it. It’s a unique and very soft silver. Definitely, has an antiqued feel.

Rapture is described as a rosy pink with pink super glimmer. This shade like Absolution is fallout heavy and performs best over a sticky base, glitter glue or applied with a wet brush. The shade is a more of a warm rosy pink metallic, it’s almost coral based with warm pink glitter with a glitter. This is a more sheer based shade loaded with glitter and shimmer made to transform eyeshadow that it’s laid over.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Vestment

Vestment is a shimmery maroon with a blue-green shift. This is a very common duo chrome combo, the warm reddish brown with a teal shift but this one does have a very strong shift where it’s more teal than brown. I have 3 shades like this but this one has more oomph.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - Ministry
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Ministry

Ministry, the one shade I could do without. Why do all her palettes have a cobalt blue? That being said, it’s a nice cobalt blue. Very metallic and pigmented.

Relic is described as a fool’s gold. Another fun shade to have. This paired with Exorcism looks like LSU colors. LOL! If I were into football I would do a look… Relic is a very bright warm yellow gold.

Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette - Stigmata
Kat Von D Saints & Sinners Palette – Stigmata

Stigmata is described as metallic Scarlett. Warmer than Rosary is tone. It’s more of a true metallic red.

On a whole, all the eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented, blendable and buttery smooth. There is nothing bad I can say about the formulas at all. They are on par with any of her other releases. The quality is great across the board.

The Swatches

These switches pretty damn good and perform even better. The special effect shades, Absolution, and Rapture do take some special attention because they are so glittery but if you take time to wet your brush with some setting spray or use a glitter glue, they perform amazingly.
