Kat Von D True Love Eyeshadow Palette Review

I purchased the True Love palette on Sephora's website. You can still get it on sale for $24.00. It was originally $34.00.

  • Sleek and sturdy
  • It was neatly packaged in a folded cardboard paper.
  • Large mirror with two double-sided small brushes. I find them pretty useless if you ask me.
  • 8 eyeshadows. They actually have names on all of them.
  • Net weight 8 oz or 1.4 g
Colors (swatched without a primer)
  • Peanut - shimmery light champagne with a frost finish
  • Benji - Medium bronze cream shadow
  • Rebekah - dark satin brown with fine gold glitters
  • Lucifer - matte medium black
  • Cholita - Dark eggplant purple with a satin finish
  • Skiba - Medium lavender purple with fine silver glitters
  • Babe - electric violet with a blue sheen
  • Missy - Frosty light lavender blue. It looks white in the pan but turns a different color when swatched. My camera didn't do such a great job at capturing the blue.

  • I had the most trouble with Benji, the cream eyeshadow. It has pretty much dried up in the packaging already when I received it. That's such a shame because it looked so pretty in the pan.
  • I had some minor glitter fall out with Skiba.
  • Lucifer was the least pigmented shadow. I was expecting it to be a lot darker for a dramatic dark smokey look but I guess it can be good for those who enjoy much more subtle smokey eyes.
  • I was pretty pleased with the pigmentation and consistency of rest of the eyeshadows. They felt buttery smooth and blended quite nicely.

This is a pretty nice palette that comes with a variety of shades and finish. I'm pretty bummed about the dried up cream shadow and I would have liked it better if it was a pressed eyeshadow instead so that I wouldn't have this problem. Aside from poor color payoff with Lucifer, all the other shades worked well.
My rating 8/10.
