Review: Kat Von D Star-Crossed Eyeshadow Quad

Hi, loves! Today I have a review and swatches of the Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in "Star-Crossed." I've been wanting to try Kat Von D makeup for a long time because it gets positive feedback online. The general consensus is that people are surprised with the quality considering it's a "celebrity makeup brand." I agree! I have also reviewed the Kat Von D Rosary lipstick previously. Now that the ramble is over, let's talk about the product:
  • Phenomenal packaging. The names of the eyeshadows are on the back of the box and the palette itself (great for labeling swatches)
  • The eyeshadows are soft, pigmented, and easy to blend
  • They aren't the longest lasting eyeshadows I've tried, but they last a good 7 hours
  • After 7 or 8 hours, they fade (not crease)

Eye Makeup Breakdown: Scandinavian (lid), Ville (crease and smudged on lower lashline), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner Pencil in Crash (waterline), Tarina Tarantino Fleur de Lash Faceted Mascara
I recommend it to: 
-Anyone who really loves the packaging. I know it's not everyone's taste. (I think it's pretty!)
-Anyone who loves dramatic smoky eyes. Although there are neutrals, the Kat Von D line mostly offers sultry colors with shimmery or metallic finishes. The metallic finish on Scandinavian is amazing in person.
Kat Von D Makeup is sold exclusively at Sephora.

  7. Oh. my. LAWD. The look you created with these colors... I would have never thought of it but it looks so stunning!! I hear such fabulous things about Kat's makeup line but have yet to try it myself (it's always just so shocking to me when celebrities actually make good products!!)!

  11. Scandinavian is my favorite out of the four! I don't notice much fading after a long period of time, but a makeup setting spray might help with that~

  18. These are all such beautiful shades! I have to agree with you though that her shadows tend to fade (not crease). I have the Ludwig palette from her and I am amazed at how creamy and easy to blend the shadows are.

  20. Like that it's a mix of brights and neutrals! The look you created with it is so nice-the purple shadow as an under-eye liner is lovely :)

  26. Gorgeous eye looks, Coco! I just picked up the Saint palette and can't wait to use it! I swatched it this morning and the smoothness and pigmentation of the shadows blew me away!

    1. Yes! So impressive! Not what you expect from a new-ish and "unestablished" brand. Hope you enjoy your palette
