Recently I saw the new Kat Von D Esperanza Palette and knew I had to have it. It’s an eyeshadow palette with 8 shades (7 new) that’s perfect for Spring. I’ve got a video showing off the colors, and a giveaway too!
If you like this video give it a thumbs up and share!
About the Kat Von D Esperanza Palette
Inspired by the transformative spirit of spring, this luxurious eye shadow palette contains a variety of shades ranging from subtle mattes to bold shimmers and pearls. The transformer shade, Dayglo, can layer on to each color to add a unique dimension. A built-in mirror helps you create an abundance of on-the-go eye looks.
$36 for .035 oz x 8 eyeshadows.
All eyeshadows swatched on Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Primer.
light, bright purple with turquoise green sparkles, tiny bit of fallout
transformer shade, iridescent white
white with golden green iridescence
a soft peach pearl (this was seen in the Spellbinding Eyeshadow book)
matte peony pink
coral with pink tones (reminds me a bit of MAC Sushi Flower)
glitter greenish grey
deep grey with turquoise green sparkles
sparkle seafoam green
light seafoam green with tiny minty blue sparkles
light matte beige, perfect for blending out the edges of colors, great as a base color
I love this palette! Much like with the Spellbinding eyeshadow book, I love that KVD is encouraging people to layer and experiment with shadows by including Dayglo. It really helps people to think outside of the box and get into the habit of playing with colors. Don’t limit yourself to just mixing the other 7 colors with Dayglo! Try mixing Galore with Dog Roses. See what happens when you play with Selena and Placebo.
I love the packaging. It’s such a super cute, bright design. I also appreciate the fact that the eyeshadow names are printed underneath each of the eyeshadows in the palette.
I love all 8 of the colors. I find these to be great colors for spring. I love mint, coral and purple! The peach is a great eye brightener. While I’m not typically a brown eyeshadow fan, I do like the bronze, Dog Roses, especially with Dayglo layered on top. I find South easy to use for blending out the edges of other colors.

Selena & placebo have me drooling like a baby!
They’re so pretty!
I adore Placebo! I really like all the colors (perfect for spring!) – but I mainly want this palette just for Placebo :p
I really like that one too!
This palette looks really pretty. I find myself rather consistently impressed with the quality of Kat Von D shadows.
Same here! I only have a few – Spellbinding, this one and 2 of the smaller ones, but I love the colors and design.
I NEEEEED IT. is it LE?
I think it’s LE
Is it weird I’ve been stalking your site to see if you planned on reviewing this? LOL. It looks amazing! Thanks for the giveaway!
No, I’m happy to hear that You’re welcome!
Single-handedly making me broke this week. I love this!!!
I’m glad I’m not alone in my love for this palette!
I like the concept of layering different colors to create unique shades, and it’s really cool that KVD is encouraging people to think outside the box. I wasn’t going to pick up this palette, because I’m not very comfortable with some of the colors, but my favorites are Archangel, Galore and of course Dayglo.
Galore and Archangel are very nice eye brightners
Love Selena and Dog Roses. Really some unique colors in this palette!
Very pretty palettes! I have several Kat Von D ones and haven’t been disappointed yet!
I agree, they’re usually really cute.
I was just looking at this palette last night on Sephora. It’s gorgeous! Thanks for the generosity!
I have been eyeing this palette on Sephora’s website… but really hoped to swatch it first since the colors are not those that I would normally use. I do think it is gorgeous though and can’t wait to check it out!
Hope you love it in person
What lovely shades! I love Kat von D but the Sephora outlets in Asia don’t carry her line, so I get the products when I travel, by which time the LEs are long gone!
Yeah as far as I’m aware they’re only sold in the USA (which is why they’re cruelty free).
This looks great… and I have to admit I’m rubbish at mixing and experimenting, it’s something I definitely need to work on! I so wish we could get Kat von D in Europe!!
That’s one of the reasons I made this giveaway open worldwide.
And that’s one of the reasons why you totally rule!!
If I were to see this in a store I’d think of you instantly. It’s perfect for you.
All it’s missing is a bright teal blue
Hope I am a winner! Really loving these colors!
They’re really fun.
Wow – using Dayglo over the top changes the colours significantly and looks incredible. I’m with you on the ‘encouraging people to layer and experiment with shadows’ (in fact this is something that you’re tutorials have really inspired me with – thanks)
And it will look a lot better when you actually use it on your eye rather than me quickly blending on the back of my hand.
likely true but in pallette the colours were nice but didn’t excite me, but the swatches definitely make me want to try these out.
I really love this palette. There are so many looks I can come up with in my head, and that’s not usually the case with palettes. I’m a sucker for pastels, I think Spring is my favorite time of year color-wise (followed by Summer, I love neons too lol, I’m a color girl). Lately, I’ve been really into orange pastels. Thank you for having the giveaway. =)
You’re welcome! I think we have similar tastes
Quick question: I’ve found that Kat’s palettes have been lackluster lately, is the pigmentation good?
I was really pleased with both the Spellbinding Palette and this palette. I purchased both for myself. While I did swatch on primer (because I can’t go without eyeshadow primer due to having oily, hooded lids), I felt the pigmentation for all colors was good. I also bought one to give away because I love it so much. So for me, I’m happy with this palette and love the pigmentation.
So very pretty ! I don’t own anything from her line but would love to.
Galore just stands out to be for being such a pearly beautiful shade! Love it!
Placebo looks gorgeoussss I must have it.
Cool giveaway! I like santeria
that is such a great group of colors. thanks for the giveaway
ty for the giveaway! these colors are gorgeous!
seems like if you own the spellbinding palette already then there’s a lot of similar repeats? dayglo and archangel are very pretty tho and really up my alley.
This palette is gorgeous! I love me some coral! <3
I’ve yet to try any Kat shadows, but this is a great price. One of my former mac co-workers does her makeup for Sephora.
Wow! The colors are awful pretty! Thank you
Glad to know that Kat Von D is cruelty free! I love her eyeliner but I’ve been getting mixed answers about her CF. Different websites either conflict or don’t list her at all!
The KVD parent company is not cruelty free (Sephora), but KVD is cruelty free and not sold in China.
Ah, got it. Thanks for clarifying!
Wow I love the packaging!

LOVE this palette – the colors, the finishes, the packaging… *swoon worthy* I adore the layering idea so much. Dayglo is beautiful. It reminds me of Illamasqua Hemlock but in eyeshadow form. Gorgeous! <3

I love this palette but need to save my pennies at the moment. Thanks for swatching!
