Glam Morena: Review: Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette.

Review: Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette.

I own two Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes, so I'll be doing reviews and swatches of them. The first one I'm going to show you is a palette that I won as a prize. It's the Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Metal Orchestra.


Description: A smoky eye adds an instant air of mystery—create your own with the Metal Orchestra Eyeshadow 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 eyeshadow palette is stenciled with silver roses and arrives packaged in a silk-screened black and silver box that is itself a work of art—and inspired by Kat's favorite tattoo.

Price: $34.00

The Metal Orchestra Palette Shades Includes: First Class (shimmery white), Techno (royal blue with glitter), Thrasher (shimmery navy blue), Dagger (blackend blue with glitter), Lucifer (matte black), Glock (shimmery gun metal), Razor Gray (shimmery light gray), Slayer (shimmery silver cream shadow)

PROS:
  • Sleek packaging
  • Very vibrant pigmentation
  • Smooth eyeshadow texture
  • Perfect for creating smokey eyes
  • Eyeshadows blend great with each other

  • CONS:
  • Fall out from shimmer or glitter
  • The cream eyeshadow is pointless

  • Overall Thoughts: All Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palettes retail for $34.00, which isn't a bad price since you get 8 eyeshadows in every palette. The packaging is sleek and black. The outer packaging reminds me of NARS with the rubbery-like black packaging. This palette is very easy to store because it's not big or bulky. There's also a nice sized mirror included in every palette.

    This palette is perfect for creating smokey eyes! The combinations are endless. The eyeshadow shades range from blues, to grays, there's a black, and there's a white. Each eyeshadow is vibrant and highly pigmented, except the cream eyeshadow. The cream eyeshadows are pointless and a waste of space. I don't know why Sephora insists on putting one cream eyeshadow in every palette now. I really wished they would stop putting one in and only have powder eyeshadows again. My cream eyeshadow was dried out from the start. Each eyeshadow has a shimmery or metallic finish. As with any eyeshadow that contains glitter you're going to experience some type of fall out. Thankfully I now own a glitter eyeshadow base to fix that issue. The only eyeshadow that has a matte finish is Lucifer.

    If you're a fan of only matte eyeshadows, dislike smokey eyes, or dislike blue eyeshadows then you're probably not going to like this eyeshadow palette. If you are a fan of all of those three things I mentioned then this palette is worth checking out.

    I have this palette and my cream shadow was completely dried out from the get-go, too! I thought maybe I just got one that had been sitting around for a while, but then I bought another KVD Palette (can't remember which one) that has a red cream shadow that's also a dried-out waste of space. What a bummer. I do love the shadows though, Lucifer, Thrasher, and Glock are my faves from this palette ;)

    I have this palette too I got it after it first came out, and the creme shadow I used once before it dried up. I do like the blue side a lot though.

    I've wanted to try her make-up line period. Her concealers look great & I agree with you by the swatches the cream looks pointless but you could make it work.

    I haven't tried out any of the Kat Von D. products yet. I've heard really good things about the concealer but less so on her eyeshadows. Hmm, how curious. Thanks for the review! :)

    I really wish they would stop putting cream shadows in these palettes, then I'd be all over them. They're pointless.

    I passed on this palette b/c i dont like blues on myself. But i have a bunch of her palettes that i have to dig out again soon

    Jesse said...

    Great review! I have heard a lot of mixed opinions about KVD products, but this palette looks nice and pigmented. And the packaging is pretty sick!

    Danielle said...

    Those blues look so nice and smokey! Great swatches. I have only tried one Kat Von D palette and it was that one that came out at Christmas last year. Her shadows are actually quite nice, smooth and kinda buttery. If I only I were an *actual* Kat Von D fan....I might be more inclined to get more of her makeup line ;P
