Kat Von D Poetica Palette Review + Rose's Beauty Store Experience

Hii Lovelies!

I think every beauty addict in the UK has been lusting over a variety of Kat Von D products since their Sephora launch a few years back. But up until recently Sephora did not ship in the UK, so there were limited options for us addicts to get our swatch stained hands on Kat's makeup goodies. 

I'm a little late on the Rose's Beauty Store bandwagon but they are a UK store selling those hard to get USA goodies we've all been lusting over. Some are more reasonably priced than others but if you factor in shipping and what taxes you'd pay most items work out pretty reasonably priced. The beauty of Rose's is that what you pay at the checkout is what you pay, no pesky import tax slips through your door. So if you don't fancy spending over £75 on the Sephora website, or just want to pick up a couple of bits, Rose's Beauty Store is a more affordable option. The palette is priced on their store at £38.99 with 99p shipping per item, but a quick google search gave me the coupon code "100" that deducted a lovely 10% off which is always nice to have.

I've had my eye on Poetica for a long long time. But it wasn't until i spotted the shade names i knew i had to have it. Long story short one of the shades, Skiba, is named after one of the vocalists in my favourite band. So fangirling aside... we'll get on with the review!

Forgiveness, Sand Timer, Chandler, Tijuana, Wonderland, Skiba, Babe, You Alone 

The shades in this palette really are stunning and the range of shades is what really drew me to this particular palette. I would say i don't have anything like  at least 5 or 6 of these in my collection (i really am still justifying the purchase to myself). To be a little cliche... Most of these shades are soft like butter. They really do have a gorgeous soft texture to them that makes them blend superbly. I have had a little more trouble with the purples in the palette as i find these have a stiffer texture but apply to the eye better than they swatch. Oh! And i nearly forgot to mention the Autograph Pencil in Puro Amor! I haven't reached for this a ton yet as I'm not a big pencil liner kinda gal, but it is one of the blackest black liners i have seen. 

I think these are awesome summer colours and i am determined to get a lot of use out of these especially that gorgeous orangey copper Chandler. I think its fair to say I'm a little bit in love with this palette as a whole and I'll need to really restrain myself from picking up more of her collection... The foundation is next on my list!

Forgiveness, Sand Timer, Chandler, Tijuana, Wonderland, Skiba, Babe, You Alone

Overall this is a absolutely beautiful palette and well worth every penny. If you are in the USA go give this absolute stunner a swatch in Sephora or if you're based in the UK or Europe you can find this on Rose's Beauty Store here (Priced at £38.99).

Have you tried any of the Kat Von D line?



  1. Bloody hell! Thats nearly double the converted USA price!! I think i'll pass on Rose's Beauty Store for now haha :P
    I don't use my Kat Von D palette enough, although I'm about to do my face...*pulls it out*

  2. I have this palette and love it, it sparked an obsession with Kat Von D and I really want her nudey toned palette now!
