Kat Von D has three new True Romance palettes out called Saint, Sinner and Poetica.
As you might know, I have a mild “thing” about having to own all of these palettes and in fact now I do with the exception of two (Ludwig and True Love). Yes, even though there are repeated colors in them.
The new palettes are slightly smaller and in a much different kind of palette. These are metal with rounded corners and a spring-hinge which opens them up completely flat. The older ones had a plastic rubbery feel with square edges and they opened and stayed open to the angle you wanted, which is handy considering there is a mirror inside.
All her palettes have great design on the front and these are no exception. They are all embossed with a different pattern and look really cool. They do feel a bit flimsy and cheap to me though and I don’t like how when you open them the spring opens the entire lid out so you can’t really look into the mirror without using your hands to hold it open.
Another good thing about these is that none of them have those cream shadows in them, which tended to be fairly crappy and dried out quickly. She also got rid of the useless little brushes and included a black Autograph Pencil liner instead. Good move!
