Review: Kat Von D Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette

Hey guys! Today I'm going to be reviewing the Kat Von D Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette. When this first came out, the colors looked gorgeous, and I can't resist a new palette launch, so I snatched it up right away.

The packaging of this palette is beyond gorgeous. It's so different and it's one of my favorite looking palettes that I own. I find myself staring at it occasionally, as weird as that sounds. 

It's a cardboard packaging that has a strong magnetic closure, but it is a bit bulky for travel. It also comes with a very generously sized mirror that I'm sure anyone can appreciate, and the shade names of the shadows are conveniently on the back of the palette. 

Taken from the Sephora website:

What it does:
Experience the bolder side of neutral with this lunar-inspired palette of cool, cosmic colors. These 12 new provocative shades are brilliantly arranged into three quads, each featuring a large, versatile base or highlighter shade with a corresponding trio of accent hues—from irresistible silvers to moon-dust nudes and smoldering earth tones in pearl and matte finishes. These ultrasmooth eye shadows are milled with a triple-jet process to yield rich pigment in just one swipe while delivering ultimate blendablity and crease-free wear. 

- Gravitron: Soft iridescent pink
- Night Crawler: Matte dusty beige
- Dios: Silver grey iridescence 
- Lunacy: Rich pearlized purple

- Vast: Pearlized taupe
- Astrological: Pale lilac sheen
- Darkstar: Purplish pewter
- Orion: Matte chocolate brown

- Lycan: Matte cream
- 3AM: Metallic champagne
- Moonshine: Metallic silver
- Killing Moon: Matte black

Alright, so it's undeniable that just by looking at the colors in this palette, you can tell that they're so beautiful. When swatching though, the pigment quality seems hit and miss to me. They're so buttery soft, which really creates alot of fallout, but I'm not too picky with that honestly. I'm not sure why, but the color Vast has to be my favorite shade in this palette on my eyes. It just makes them look amazing and awake. It's funny because I was originally drawn to the purples, but I'm not so blown away by them. Even with not being so impressed with the purples, I think this palette would look great for someone with green or hazel eyes, and even blue eyes if the purples are used right. Lasting power is good too, as long as I use a primer. For $46, I wish I liked this alot more than I do. It's a beautiful palette and the colors are great, but with them being hit and miss quality wise, I don't think it's really worth the $46. Her older palettes are some of my favorites too, which kinda bums me out. If you're interested in this palette, you can find it at Sephora.

Have you tried this palette? If so/not, what do you think about it?


  1. I have heard a ton of mixed reviews on this palette. I agree it looks beautiful, and I really love the mix of taupe shades but I can't convince myself to pick it up. Great review!

    1. Thank you! I didn't like giving such a meh review of it since I love KVD makeup so much! I think she is coming out with a new eyeshadow palette soon, so maybe I'll pick that up and see how it is


Thank you for all your comments! I'll reply back as soon as I can :)
