Kat Von D Angeles True Romance Eyeshadow Palette
Kat Von D Angeles True Romance Eyeshadow Palette ($15.00, 8 x 0.05 oz., Sephora) is an 8-pan eyeshadow palette with 4 neutral-tone and 4 blue-tone shades. The palette, which is a hard white plastic, includes 2 really small and useless synthetic applicators and a full-sized mirror. For some reason, the palette is being phased out of circulation, but hopefully Sephora will restock online. Some may still be found in stores.
Venus is a beautiful orangey-red copper with a metallic finish. It has great pigmentation, applies beautiful, and blends very well. The formula is very soft, smooth, and dense.
Leather is a warm medium-dark brown with a matte finish and subtle sheen. I found that upon initial application, the shadow applied slightly uneven. It has good, build-able pigmentation. The formula is soft, very smooth, and almost cream-like. Leather is also found in Kat Von D's Beethoven and Ludwig palettes.
Specimen is a cool grayed medium brown with a frosty shimmer finish. It has great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and dense texture. There are many shades like this, but Specimen seemed surprisingly unique!
Rehab is a slightly warm peach champagne with a metallic finish. It has great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and dense texture. Excellent for just a quick wash for a casual eye or paired with black winged liner and red lips.
Peggy is a warm green-heavy teal with a gorgeous gold duo-chrome and multi-chromatic shimmer. It has good, build-able pigmentation with a soft, smooth, somewhat thin texture. Peggy was also included in the discontinued Memento Mori palette.
Bukowski is a warm slightly smoky teal with a soft metallic finish. It has great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, dense texture.
Bellbottom is a cool, muted medium cornflower blue with a beautiful soft aqua sheen and multi-chromatic shimmer. With a description like that, you have to know it's quite a unique shade! It has great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, somewhat thin texture.
Morphine is an opalescent white with a blue sheen and multi-chromatic shimmer cream shadow. It has a drier feel for a cream shadow than I prefer. I also have read reports of complete drying out of Kat Von D shadows over time. The white base sheers out a lot when blended. It has medium, build-able pigmentation.
I generally really like Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes. The texture of the powder shadows in Angeles is really nice and lovely to work with. Besides the run-of-the-mill shades (Venus, Leather, Rehab), the other ones seem quite nice and unique. I really, really like this specific palette very much. At it's marked down price at $15.00 from $34.00, grab this while you can!
