Kat Von D and Kingdom book series

So this week through Phyrra blog, who is a beauty guru and blogger, along with, I found the newest treasure of my makeup collection, which is the Kat Von D "Monarch and Chrysalis" palettes..okay wait a minute... girlies scream ever... had so much excitement from seeing these palettes, I am wearing a big ole "Chesire" cat grin, like in Alice and Wonderland. I was lucky enough to have the money and the bonus sephora VIB 15% off, so I bought both palettes. It was like the heavens above shine down upon and the angels where singing... MUST HAVE, MUST HAVE, MUST HAVE, with these two palettes. I cannot begin to describe how much I love Kat Von D makeup. It is my third holy grail makeup. 

     Monarch and Chrysalis palettes

So In honor of my love and my excitement... (I so wish you could hear the happiness in my voice right now) I decide to do a blog on all of the Kat Von D items I own right now. The first items will be my foundation and setting powder, in "LIGHT 45", both of these items are 34.00 dollars at Sephora. I have very fair skin, and both of the items work well on my skin. I also have oily to combo skin and I dont have an issue with this foundations disappearing or wearing away. They last all day, and the liquid foundation blends smoothie and makes your skin look flawless. For me the liquid is also a full finish foundation, it covers, my redness, and my pimps. I love this foundation and Setting powder. The powder, goes on smoothie, last all days and helps to set the foundation to a matte finish in my opinion. I recommend this foundation to fair skinned people.

Next item is the Kat Von D "Esperanza" palette, which retail for 36.00 at Sephora. I love all of the colors in this palette, it has shimmery, matte and glitter shades in it.

 These shades blend so well together, they are also so perfect for spring and summer. They are bright and smooth. This is truly on of my all time favorite grail palettes. The one thing i do have an issue with is that all Kat Von D palettes have fall out. 

I do know I will be wearing this palette all summer and it is a limited palette at Sephora, so hurry and buy now, you will not regret it. The shades in the "esperanza" palette are  "Selena" which is purple, "Dayglo" which is the transformer shades as well as a light green color, "Galore"is a peach shimmer color, "placebo" is a orange-y red color, (which Kat Von D does so well), "Santeria" is a shimmery blue- green color, next is "archangel" color which is a light shimmery green color, "South" which is a peachy-nude matte color, and "Dog Roses" which is a golden coppery color and the final color.

This whole palette is Vampire Inspired in my opinion.

This Palette reminds me of the colors a vampire might wear.

The next Palette is the lady bird palette, include above is my hand with swatches. This whole palette is a matte palette. I love it because it is Kat Von D and because the case is a metal carving case with a lady who has wings for hair. That is my favorite thing about this case is the fact that its metal and has a carving or etching in the case, plus it snaps close with spring hinges. I so wish Kat Von D had kept these kinds of palette designs. I am not a huge fan of the new card board ones because they get dirty to easily and are not reusable in my opinion like her metal cases. So back to the colors, these colors are matte but because of that reason, i believe they come off to dark on the skin. My two favorite colors in this palette are both end colors, which is the purple, title "Fur Elise" and "Cleopatra" which is the burnt orange brown color. I love Kat Von D most for her purples and orange coppery brown colors. The coppery ones, she just does so right for my pale skin and blue eyes.  The colors in these palettes starting from left and going towards right are: "Fur Elise", "Vespertine", "renholder", "Siouxsie- Sioux", "Unrequited", "harlow", "wolf" and "Cleopatra". This palette is title "Lady Bird" and I believe it would work better with Meduim to dark skin people with darker color eyes. I dont regret buying it but I dont get much use from it unless I mix it with my "poetica" palette which I will discuss next. This palette retailed for 36.00 dollars as well at sephora and came with the "Amor" eyeliner pencil also by Kat Von D.


The Poetica Palette was 36.00 dollars at Sephora. I bought it in a combo though with Kat Von D lipstick "FTW", along with eyeliner pencil, "Immortal Love" and Masacara, "Sin-Full Lash". I absolutely love all of these items when mix together with this palette. It was a 59.00 dollar total package set and well worth the price because all of these things added up to a 100.00 dollars when bought separate. The eye shadow colors from left to right are title, "Forgiveness" starting with the shimmery white, next is "Sandtimer", "Chandler", "tijuana", "wonderland","shiba", "babe" and finally ending with "you alone" as the matte off white color on the right. The way this palette is design reminds me so much of Alice in Wonderland style makeup, in fact if Alice had worn Makeup, it would have been this palette.  It goes without saying this is my favorite Kat Von D palette for the fall and winter season. I love that Copper color title " Sand Timer" and wear it alot with the purples. One of the best palettes I own and super pigmented. This whole Palette is highly pigmented, blend-able and very mix able. It is so easy to come up with a look from this palette.

The Masacara is title "Sin Full Lash" and cost 20.00 to 24.00 dollars, it was one of my favorites and is no longer available at Sephora instead they have a new one title "Immortal Lash 24" and is only available for VIP. Now these two pencils are my favorite liners ever, the Brown one is title "Immortal Love" and then the other is the black one title "Amor", they are both blend able, soft, and creamy. They go on smooth and cost 10.00 dollars right now on Now on to the foiled lipstick from Sephora by Kat Von D titled "FTW", not kidding... thats the name.. It is a beautiful, creamy, smooth lipstick that looks like a croppery, cranberry, shimmery red color. It has a metallic finish in the light when you wear it and it highlights the face so well. The lipstick is Foiled Love brand and cost 19.00 dollars at Sephora. I love all of these items and would repurchase them again.

I will always recommend KAT VON D items when it comes to the makeup. They blend well, they are creamy, and last all day. They do have some fall out when using them but they are highly pigmented in everything not just the eye shadows. I love the design of her product cases too, the designs are just so beautiful and are very display-able for the makeup vanity.  I would definitely purchase all of these items again and I suggest if you havent but love makeup like i do, go give KAT VON D a try today. 

"KINGDOM Series, Book 1
Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate--and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys--throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.
   The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland--and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother's mating--or fight for Alice"- Excerpt from Marie Hall Author page on Facebook."

So the next thing I want to mention since it has become a favorite this week are this series by Marie Hall ,  Kingdom series on Amazon E Books. These books are the romance, "ONCE UPON TIME" tv show type of books.  The first of this series is title: "Her Mad Hatter" and its about Alice and Hatter following in love. It is a very dark, but hope filled story of dirty sexy romance between Hatter and Alice. It has a Tim Burton feel of it, like what will happen next between these two and How will they end up together since Hatter cant leave wonderland to chase Alice and bring her Home.  As I said they remind me of Tim Burton but so much more twisted in my opinion, this Alice and Hatter would definitely be Sally and Jack but more of an adult version. So worth the price to buy it too. These E Books range 2.00 to 5.00 dollars and are so delicious of a read, that you will be sad when they are over and you will want more. I have read this book and also the story of Rumpel's Prize which is Rumpelskin story and this Rumpel is darker then "Once Upon a Time" Tv Show Rumpel. He is describe as a beastly man and so naughty when it comes to the sexy part of the story. I love this Rumpel and Now I will be buying all of the rest of the kingdom stories. You can find Marie Hall at her blog which is linkable above or at her facebook which is Marie Hall Author.

   So Please check out the Marie Hall Kingdom Fantasy land books, along with the beautiful Kat Von D makeup, which I am so excited to have and use. Third please follow me on all of my Social media sites, along with subscribing to my Youtube blog where you will find more recommendations of all sorts. Please have a great day and I send you peace, love, and lots of fantasy.  Melissa

Kat Von D New Butterflies Palettes

So I was on Twitter, searching my page as usual when I spot these two beautiful palette through another blogger: Ms Phyrra Nyx who is a beauty blogger i follow. I was first attracted by the colors then i found out that they are the newest palettes by Kat Von D and I could not wait to buy them. This Week Sephora has 15% off of everything for Beauty Members. So I bought them from Sephora. I will definitely do a First impressions Video at my Youtube Chanel:  Melissahawk26. I just think these palettes are eye catching. I hope they last as long as the other Kat Von D eyeshadows I now own. These where so beautiful the first time I saw them. So now onto some information about them.
                                       The First Palette is the: Monarch Palette

                                              The Next Palette is the : Chrysalis Palette

Both Palettes are 46.00 dollars at and they just premiere. As I said I have purchase both with a 15% off, discount that Sephora is offering till April 11th, 2014 for all Beauty Subscribes. I would hurry up and run to purchase these palettes, if I was you. Kat Von D has great pigmentation, is easily blend able. They are easy to use and apply to the eye. They last all day and keep the look, of when you first applied them to the eye.  They have quality from beginning to end and I for one cannot wait until I get these palettes, Why? because every time I open a new eyeshadow palette it is like christmas morning for me.
