Weekly Review: Kat Von D's True Romance Eyeshadow Palette - Mi Vida Loca Palette

For my 20th birthday this year, one of the gifts I received was a 50 dollar gift card to Sephora. This palette is one of the items I bought with it :)

I really love this palette! The packaging is absolutely beautiful and I could seriously stare at it for a good hour. It's made out of a sturdy metal or tin. The art work is done by KVD herself and is very colorful and eye catching. It is fairly small and would be perfect for traveling! You open this palette by pushing a little button that will cause the top to spring open. Inside it's lined with a nice black plastic that is very sturdy and sleek. A large mirror is placed nicely inside the top half of the palette. Under that is where the 8 beautiful shadows are :)

These shadows vary from matte to shimmery and are all fairly smooth and easy to apply. I will state that some of the colors take a bit more work to get a good color payoff. With a base though, it won't be as difficult to work with. Now I love all these colors because they are all so cute and springy! I am a huge sucker for pastels and shimmer, so this palette is just perfect for me! 

Included with this palette is an Autograph Pencil in Wonderchild. It is a deep navy blue and is very creamy and easy to blend.

Here are some swatches for the shadows!
From L to R: Swan Song, Marya, No Regrets, Drama for yo Momma, Mad Max, Dublin, Sparklehorse, and Altruism.
These all have such fun names that I think are personal and significant to KVD. I think the names behind products are always so interesting and fun, so I really love what she chose for these colors.

NOTE: i did not swatch any of these under a base, but if you guys would like me to, just leave a comment below!

Overall I have no complaints for this product! I'm very much in love with it because it's so versatile! You can create a very subtle day to day look or you can spike up the volume and make something a little more go getting! If you have a spare 36 dollars to spend, I would highly recommend this to you! 

I hope this was a good review for you guys and if I missed anything or if you think I should add something, Please let me know in the comments below! I want to post things that you guys want to know about, so any and all feedback is very much appreciated. :)
