Fakes – Kat Von D

Hello Beans,

Just a short post today. This is one of the palettes that I got for my birthday.

Disclaimer: This is a fake version of the palette upon doing my research but I have decided to place this review up as a warning to people so just beware. 

As far as fakes go this is still a beautiful palette and I am generally pleased with it.

Exterior packaging

Upon first inspection, there is nothing that indicates to me that this is a fake but this is my first glimpse of Kat Von D products so I wouldn;t know what to look for in a fake.

Palette Packaging

This is the packaging of the actual palette. it’s certainly very pretty.

Swatches

The first clue I got that this was a fake product was the unclean palette upon opening and the colours. The colours are quite dull in comparison to the actual palette. The palette would also be sparkling clean if it was the original one.

These are the swatches. As you can see the colours aren’t very pigmented but are still generally quite pretty. Certainly not the colours of the genuine Kat Von D palette though.

As I have said I still intend to use this palette as it was a birthday present but I have put this up to warn others as there are so many fakes out there which just risks lowering the reputation of the genuine Kat Von D products which I know from my research are wonderful items.

Has anyone else had any experience with fake products? I would love to hear your stories. 

Thanks Beans

  1. This is really useful! I recently purchased a fake morphe palette and the differences are so small aren’t they!? Great post, it’d mean a lot if you checked my blog out too x

    1. Yes I think it’s so easy to buy fakes one these days without realising as there are some really good fakes out there. Will check it out now, thanks!
