Kat Von D True Romance - Angeles Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches
The colors are vibrant and pigmented, however, be careful with what primer you choose for your eye. I started out using MAC's paint pot in Painterly and within about 4 hours, the shadows had faded and I had to reapply. The staying power is however lengthened when using something like Shadow Insurance or UDPP. I've been trying to use up my paint pot, so I have been using it as my go-to eye primer and it works great with almost all of my other shadows. But these shadows? Not so much.
My 2nd complaint is that the cream shadow I received was extremely dried out and I had to press very hard to get the product. I thought it was supposed to be more of a white highlighter color, but it definitely reflects as blue.
For the pros of this palette, the packaging is amazing. I love the tattoo design outside and the large mirror inside. As I said, I love the matte brown and I like the 1st coppery shade as I don't normally gravitate towards those colors even though I have blue eyes.
I had always admired this palette when it was full price, so I'm glad that I picked it up for $12. I had been eyeing the new neutrals palette that has come out from Kat Von D, but after trying this palette, I think I will pass on the new one.
Repurchase: No (especially not at full price of $34)
Where to buy: Sephora stores (sold out online)
