Kat Von D Beethoven Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

The dusty night is engulfed in loud, crazy music. The crowd cheers, chants, and head-bangs with wild abandon. On stage a rocker chick jams with her electric guitar, her right foot stamping and head banging the air to the heavy metal music. She screams and the crowd screams with her.

Yea, that’s my idea of who would totally rock (pun intended) the Kat Von D Beethoven palette.


The reason why I got this palette was that it was rated as the second best selling eyeshadow palette – just right after Urban Decay Ammo Palette. I absolutely ADORE my Ammo Palette so anything that is rated just right after that must be almost as good right? WRONG!

I wonder why this palette was named ‘Beethoven’ when the colors clearly ooze heavy metal rock and at their best, sombreness. Every time I put the colors on, I feel like I’ve sunk into a deep and cold gothic-like mood. Not uplifting at all, which is not what makeup should make a person feel.

The first 4 colors from the left are the epitome of heavy metal rock.
