Kat Von D LOVE and FURY True Romance Eyeshadow Palette Review & Nov 2010 Giveaway for You Tube

I've been a fan of Kat Von D True Romance eyeshadow palettes, but sadly her latest palette, Love and Fury, just didn't live up to my expectations...

My last purchase of Kat Von D True Romance eyeshadow palette, before this one, was Memento Mori which I adore: it has various colours from dark, glittery, light, to pastel and allowed me to create various day and night looks and the quality of the eyeshadows were amazing. And this was something I expected from Kat Von D True Romance eyeshadow palettes as I also own two other ones (Gypsy, Beethoven) and have been similarly satisfied with both. 

However, Kat Von D True Romance eyeshadow palette in Love and Fury feels mediocre. I wouldn't say it's terrible but it sure was a down grade compare to the previously released True Romance palettes.

Three of the eight eyeshadows are cream shadows. The colour "Slayer" is just a silver glittery cream; the glitters makes it difficult to blend. I just didn't find much use for this colour. The only way I could use this was to add bit of silvery glitter around the inner eye. The other two cream colors, "Bloodletting" and "Crucifix" can be used as base for the two other matching glittery powder eyeshadows: "Oddfellow" and "Ace of Spades." These cream shadows do smudge and crease so unless used as base for powder eyeshadow they are useless.

"Oddfellow"is the blackend blue (black with blue/green glitters).  "Ace of Spades" is the blackend red (black with red glitters. They are both bit powdery and the pigmentations aren't the best but they can be improved by using the cream colours (Bloodletting and Crucifix) as bases. These two colours are definitely in with the latest fall/winter eyeshadow trend of dark glittery colours. Bobbi Brown recently released blackend glitter eyesahdows and Urban Decay has the Black palette that has several blacked glittery colours.

There are two light silver and one dark silver colours. These three colours are very velvety to apply and also very pigmented. My favourite colour from this palette is the dark silver colour called "Glock."
