Kat Von D – True Romance Eyeshadow Palette (Ludwig)



Online Description:

What it is:A palette of eight eye shadow colors from tattoo artist Kat Von D.What it does:A smoky eye adds an instant air of mystery—create your own with the True Romance Eye shadow Palette. Designed by reality television star Kat Von D especially for Sephora, this artistic spectrum of shades brings an edgy-glam creativity to your makeup. The sleek black eye shadow palette is stenciled with silver roses and arrives packaged in a silk-screened black and silver box that is itself a work of art inspired by Kat’s favorite tattoo.What else you need to know: – Two double-ended applicator brushes

My Thoughts:

Kat Von D really knows how to do pigment and she does it right the first time. Every one of these colors come off instantly so bold and pigmented without even trying to pack on color. The only downside I found to this palette is that it picks up way too much product when you use a brush. Also, the brushes that come with it are crap. They scrape up product and don’t blend very well. I like that there’s a natural, day look on one side of the palette, and a sultry, dramatic side on the other. I really dig how bold she is with naming all of the shades in her line, it’s very admirable how confident she is in her niche and doesn’t care what anyone has to say about it. And she shouldn’t have to either, because the awesome integrity of her products speak for themselves. There are so many varieties to this palette besides the designated 2 looks it obviously gives. You can mix and match from each side, use them all at once for the upmost dramatic look ever, or use a couple shades for a simple, easy look. These colors are already pretty pigmented when applied dry so I don’t feel there’s a need to apply them wet but they go on just as seamlessly either way. Kat Von D does not sell single shadows in these colors to restock if you run out of one before others.
