Kat Von D Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette

Not sure if you've heard by now, but Kat Von D has released a new limited-edition palette exclusively at Sephora. The Innerstellar Palette was released onto Sephora's website on December 5th for Rouge members and on the 9th for VIB members. It will be hitting stores on January 1st for the public (Although, I have seen quite a few people say they have seen this inside their Sephoras inside JCPenney, I just checked today though and nothing). This palette is similar in structure to Kat Von D's Monarch and Chrysalis Palette which are praised for their insane pigmentation with no fallout. It is seriously like a pressed pigment in a shadow! The Monarch and Chrysalis Palette were released earlier this year (April 2014) as part of Kat Von D's permanent cosmetic line. The Innerstellar Palette retails for $46 and is only sold at Sephora.


It contains 12 eyeshadows (3 which are 0.08 oz and 9 that are 0.04 oz). 4 of the eyeshadows are mattes and 8 are satin/shimmer shades. The shades are Gravitron (soft iridescent pink), Vast (pearlized taupe), Lycan (matte cream), Night Crawler (matte dusty beige), Dios (silvery gray iridescence), Lunacy (rich pearlized purple), Astrological (pale lilac sheen), Darkstar (purplish pewter), Orion (matte chocolate brown), 3am (metallic champagne), Moonshine (metallic silver), and Killing Moon (matte black).
Kat Von D usually has her artwork as the design for her palette but this palette is celestial themed and has a unique design. I've always loved that Kat Von D commits to her themes so thoroughly, with the design as well as the names of the eyeshadows.

From Sephora's website:
A limited-edition eye shadow palette featuring 12 unexpected, celestial neutrals with shimmer and matte finishes.
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.

Although this palette is cool-toned, I may just have to pick it up since the pigmentation is on par with the rest of Kat Von D's shadows (I've researched a bit). I'm not sure it would work on my yellow undertones but there's only one way to find out, right?
