The Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Ladybird (anyone watch King of the Hill?) is the latest palette from the brand and when I recently had a 20% off promo, I knew I needed it.
I didn’t buy it because it looked that interesting or unique though. I bought it because I am OBSESSED with collecting these for some random reason! I feel this overwhelming urge to posses these palettes before I even look at the colors inside. Ah well, at least I don’t do this with any other palettes.
Ladybird features eight matte shadows as well as a mini Autograph Pencil liner in Immortal Love (dark brown).
Für Elise, Vespertine, Renholdër, Siouxsie-Sioux
Für Elise, Vespertine, Renholdër, Siouxsie-Sioux (over primer)
Für Elise is a deep eggplant purple.
Vespertine is a pale warm vanilla.
Renholdër is a medium taupe.
Siouxsie-Sioux is a deep charcoal with very slight sheen.
I found all four of these shades to be pretty nice over a primer. They are nicely pigmented and I don’t get that chalky, patchy feeling like with some matte shadows. Vespertine was on the verge of feeling chalky though. You can build them up a bit, which is nice. I love Siouxsie-Sioux.
Unrequited, Harlow, Wölf, Cleopatra
Unrequited, Harlow, Wölf, Cleopatra, Immortal Love (over primer)
Unrequited is a very pale warm tan.
Harlow is a medium cork.
Wölf is a deep warm reddish/brown.
Cleopatra is a deep burnt orange.
Immortal Love liner is a dark chocolate brown.
These four were decent, but maybe not as nice as the first four. Unrequited barely shows up on me, I think it would make a nice “under the brow bone” shade though. Wolf and Cleopatra were a little patchy feeling at first. I love the Immortal Love pencil, great creamy dark brown shade.
Overall: Well here goes. It’s my least favorite Kat Von D Palette I think. One because I just am not that into these kinds of warm colors. But also I prefer more of a mix between mattes and shimmers. The first four shades are more my speed and tend to be cooler-toned. If it was split up between the two sides I would have just bought the first four! But do I regret buying it? No! The collector in me still likes it on some level. 🙂
What do you think about this palette, is it something you would be interested in? Do you like all matte palettes or prefer a mix of finishes?
