The True Romance Poetica is my latest addition to my Kat Von D makeup collection and it does not disappoint!
It is produced by Sephora for Kat Von D so it isn't available in UK shops but Sephora now ship to the UK so at least it'll be a little easier to get a hold of! My friend Jess at SimplyJess4U sent me this palette over as I was dying to try some of Kat's makeup. I adore Kat, she is gorgeous and her makeup range is amazing!
This palette cost $36 which works out as £22. It is definitely worth the money, I'd pay more for it if I had to. The pigments are all beautiful and I love the mix of neutrals and colours. I wasn't sure how I would mix the shades at first but this palette gives loads of different pretty combinations.
The pallet comes with 8 different 1.4g shadows, which comes to under £3 per shadow, how great is that? It also comes with a small version of the Puro Amor Black Autograph pencil eye liner with it. The eyeliner is fantastic, I always use it. I just wish it wasn't in pencil form because I hate sharpening it! The colours all come with different names and I always love seeing what titles Kat has picked for each colour; they are always named after people/places/things she loves. Her colours (from left to right) are called: Forgiveness :: Sand Timer :: Chandler :: Tijuana :: Wonderland :: Skiba :: Babe :: You Alone.
I love that she named one Skiba, after Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio. Alkaline Trio are one of my most favourite bands and happen to be one of Kat's favourites too!
I have heard a few people complaining that these shadows kick up a lot of dust but I honestly haven't had that problem. I think the shadows are easy to apply and quick to blend. The single shadows contain a lot of product so they will last ages! I have another 2 of Kat's palettes and they have lasted me a year already and I have hardly dented the colours.
All in all, I'd say this was a fantastic palette and I'd recommend you try some items from Kat's Sephora range if you haven't tried any yet.
