Hi everyone! I hope your week went well.
I have been wanting a Kat Von D palette for a while now and I recently purchased the Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette. I really liked the warm shades in this palette. It comes with 8 matte shadows and one Autograph Pencil Eyeliner in Brown. I liked that the palette came with an eye pencil because most of the time the brushes that come with palettes are not amazing in quality or we probably already have a favorite set.
I also love the packaging- from how the box that contains the palette opens, to the snap to close hard case. It glides open for you to a good sized mirror which is great for traveling or just in general. I like that the case is a hard plastic and it's compact enough to throw in your purse for trips. Also, last but not least, the beautiful embossed artwork on the packaging!
The eyeshadows themselves did not disappoint at all. Even if you aren't a fan of matte shadows, go to Sephora and at least swatch these. They are buttery smooth and will last all day, without fading or getting patchy. They are also highly pigmented and the color payoff is amazing. The other palettes do have shimmer if you would like to try those instead. But this palette is definitely a favorite of mine and I think the price point is good at $36. You can create smoky, sultry or neutral looks with this palette. I think it's perfect for the colder weather but I would use it all year round!
Now, for the fun part! Swatches...
