Monarch Palette – Kat Von D

Hello Everybody!

It is a true rarity for me to spend $50 on only one thing (heck it’s rare for me to spend $20 dollars on one thing), I was raised to make the most out of my money and appreciate every cent. With that said my lovely Tia gave me $50 gift card for Sephora and I was able to get this little treat! I LUV Kat Von D products, they never disappoint when I try them in the store but I’ve never actually owned one of her products until now. Kat came out with two of these palettes in total (but now there is a third addition to the group that is all matte shades in case you’re interested) the other one is called Chrysalis and this beauty is called Monarch.

I really liked both the palettes but I’m a Leo- gold and fiery red is kind of my thing! πŸ˜‰ Anyway, lets get on to the swatches.

Monarch Swatches

TOP LEFT: entomology, telepathy, tiny death; TOP RIGHT: wrath, papilio, summerfly; BOTTOM LEFT: killing jar, delaney, vanish; BOTTOM RIGHT: disintegration, shadow box, deadhead

How gorgeous are they?! These were so soft and smooth I had to rub very carefully so that I didn’t dent the eyeshadow, and they are so pigmented you don’t need to rub hard for the color-payoff you see above. The matte shades and shimmery shades are consistent in texture and quality so that is a huge comfort since that’s not always the case. The shades themselves are stunning with half being extremely unique and bold, and the other half being more regular but necessity shades.


  • Staying Power: β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯
  • Consistency: β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯
  • Pigmentation: β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯
  • Price: β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯
  • Color Range: β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯


The pricing still gets β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯ because it matches the quality of the packaging, eyeshadows, and overall product. Yes, it is expensive but it’s also unique and playful, while still wearable for the every-day lady.

Lots of love and don’t forget to check out my previous post: Pray for Nepal.

  1. I feel the same way about my money! Very pretty. I bought the chrysalis palette and I like it! I like the look of the matte palette too πŸ™‚


    • I really wanted the Chrysalis palette too but the Monarch palette is a little more workable for everyday. I would love to get my hands on the matte palette! πŸ™‚
