Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Star-Crossed - Photos, Review, Swatches

D'oh! This entry has been sitting as a draft for a few weeks now, figure I should post it!

I have a love/hate relationship with Kat Von D makeup products, either coveting them like precious treasures or resisting urges to throw them across the room (I exaggerate, but only just!). Luckily, the True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Star-Crossed falls into the former category! Here it is:
Cute, tattoo-like design packaging
Four deep, gorgeous, shimmery shades:

In terms of quality, this palette is about all I can ask for - long-lasting, pigmented, exquisite shades that don't fade for a good while following application. All swatches are over primer, and with that base these colors hold up quite well. The color story seems surprisingly warm and cozy, perfect for cold wintery evenings. I'm sure this isn't exactly the edgy and dark image Kat Von D had in mind, but I can't help what I imagine! :P

Overall, I feel the Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow in Star-Crossed in a decent addition to any collection!

Bonus - This palette is currently on sale at Sephora for $13 (down from $20)! You can find it here.


  1. Love her stuff-especially her rehab priming elixer.

  2. Have you done any looks with this palette? I have it, and I can't figure out how to combine the colors in the palette for a cohesive look. The colors are fine individually, but do they work together somehow? I am fair with brown eyes and darkish brown hair.
