KatVonD is a famous tattoo artist, born is Mexico. She had a famous television show “LA Ink”, that show off the world of tattooing in Los Angeles. When I first heard that KatVonD would have a makeup collection at Sephora, I balked. I was expecting a subpar offering. What Sephora got however is great line of pigmented shadows, creamy pigmented lipsticks and an all around fun line. I own three of the True Romance eye shadow palettes. I don’t think I would own that many if they were pretty crappy.
The True Romance Palette has 8 eye shadows that are more of a neutral tone than her other ones. With this palette you can do a neutral smoky eye or a nice sweet innocent eye. The eye shadows are as follows: Heavens (shimmery creamy golden white), Enjoy the Silence (shimmery gold), <3 (glittery pink ), Downtown (shimmery golden pink), Sunny (shimmery medium gold), Pray For Me (shimmery taupe brown), Bookworm (glittery dark brown) and Caravaggio (matte dark chocolate brown). This palette is a fun palette. The shadows are extremely pigmented, as is normal with her eye shadows. They are soft and creamy. There is little to no fallout. I found that they went on easily over my Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance and didn’t crease all day. I like this palette and recommend it to anyone who doesn’t mind a good dose of shimmer!
I am going to show you 2 looks. One is a smoky eye and the other is a sweet, innocent eye. There is such a variety of colors in this palette that you can do either.
For this look I used Pray For Me in the crease, Bookworm on the outer edge of the eye and under the eye to line. I used Sunny on the lid and <3 under the brow. To line the upper lid I used MAC’s Superslick Liquid Liner in Defiantly Feline. For mascara I used L’Oreal’s new Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke. On my cheeks I used Benefit’s Coralista blush and on my lips I used Illamasqua’s Intense Lipgloss in Artifice.
For the look I am wearing today I used: Downtown in the crease, Pray For Me on the outer edge of the lid and under the eye to line. On the lid I used <3. Under the brow I used Heavens. For mascara I used another one of L’Oreal’s new mascaras (they have a lot of new ones, as does Maybelline), Telescopic Shocking Extensions. On my cheeks I used Pixi’s All Over Magic Rose Radiance. And on my lips I used SEPHORA + Pantone Universe Rose Dawn Gleaming lipgloss.
The Verdict on KatVonD’s True Romance Eye Shadow Palette”
The KatVonD True Romance Eye Shadow Palette is a great buy. It is available from SEPHORA for $34.00. I love a good palette that has great pigmentation, smooth eye shadows and that have little to no fallout. This palette also has enough variety in color to do a number of different looks. I have two other of these palettes, the Beethoven and Poetica. And please, I would like to hear feedback from anyone who has purchased them too. Thanks!
