Long story short, I had narrowed my purchase down to 2 palettes, the True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in True Love, and the True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Ludwig. My decision was made when a sales associate came over and pointed out the Kat Von D Get the Look Kit. She must have known that I can't resist a steal because she told me about all of the Full Size products that are included and their value. Needless to say, I was sold.
Now, on to the swatchapalooza!
|True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in True Love|
|High Voltage Primer in Sin|
|High Voltage Primer in Smoky|
|Shadows over blended swatches.|
Now let's talk primers. The High Voltage Primers retail for $15 bucks a piece and you are getting not one, but TWO full sized primers in this kit. They are pretty thick in consistency and take a little effort to get them as sheer as I did in the blended swatch above. Sin will come in handy and may even replace the spot in my heart reserved for MAC's Painterly Paint Pot...maybe. Smoky, on the other hand, is something I wouldn't have necessarily picked out if it hadn't been in the kit. Not that I don't love a good smokey eye, mind you. I just rely more on neutral, fleshier bases to build bold color on top of. This will be an adventure to use, but I am 100% down for it! You can bet you will see an FOTD or two where I experiment with it!
Next is the full size Autograph Pencil in Black Metal Love ($18) and Painted Love Lipstick in Celebutard ($18).
|Autograph Pencil in Black Metal Love|
|Glitter Chunks. Love!|
|Top: two sipes. Bottom: smudged with provided smudger|
|Painted Love Lipstick in Celebutard|
|A pale, muted, pinky flesh-tone|
Celebutard is great as well! The color is muted, but the payoff is not! Again, nothing sheer here. And, the color choice was a great one for this kit because with all of the bright, bold smoky colors running around here, a bold lipstick could turn your look from lovely lady to lady of the night real fast.
Overall, fabulous buy. I have gone from a girl who had barely heard of Kat Von D to someone already planning her next Kat Von D palette purchase. Stay tuned for FOTD combining all of these products!
