January Essentials – Kat Von D – True Love Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 5 - 2010

Obviously, this has been out aaaaaages… but ever since I saw the swatches on Jojoba’s blog last month, I’ve been lemming it like a woman possessed.

Since Sephora doesn’t ship to the UK, I have no US friends and I’m not keen on paying £40 on eBay, I’ll just have to suck it up and continue to cry myself to sleep thinking about it until like the beautiful LE item it is, it disappears from my sights forever…

A January essential? Most definitely *sigh*

If you have it, tell me how much you love it!

    Have you seen the tattoo concealer from the Kat Von D Sephora range? Amazing! Not that I ever want to cover up any of my tatts… but they did a complete cover up on her and she looked like a completely different person xx

    AAARGHHH I’m madly lemming this too… the prices on eBay are just not worth it! Especially as it costs a lot less than the asked prices on eBay, i’d rather not bump myself off!

    This post makes me wanna make me dig out all my dvd’s with LA INK and have a mahoosive tattoo watching sesh! 😀

    Actually, the Kat von D palettes may look great but the quality is really mediocre. The mattes are chalky, the shimmers are not quite so pigmented, and the colors run together in the middle of the day– even when my eyes are primed. I only tested this at my friend’s place but we both agree that this palette is not worth $34 USD.

    && with $34, I can buy 5 NYX tri-quads! 15 gorgeous shadows that won’t disappoint? Yes, please.

    Browns and purples are my favourites, so this looks like instant love for me! Have you thought about using a parcel forwarding service?

    • @Star_Violet = Same here, browns and purples are total <3 for me… they're really expensive those parcel forwarding services unless you use them regularly I think.

    Yayayay the Kat Von D palletes! I love ’em! I remember drooling over one myself, I can’t remember what it was called though.. something like blue metal? Or Metal orchestra? :/

    I do remember that it had lovely deep blues and blacks in it.. which I love! Good luck getting one, I’m sure it’s not that hard… *rethinks*… ok maybe it is…

    I am in the US (with Sephora gift cards burning a hole in my pocket I might add) and would be happy to do a swap with you. I lived in the UK for some time and there are some things I miss that I would love to get my hands on.

    • @Amy – Hello, thank you xx I think I’m gonna aim to do a swap or 2 a little bit later in the year after IMATS… and would be more than happy to pick up some bits from over here for you x

    I don’t have this but I’m really tempted to get Kat Von D palettes. Thanks to jojoba’s reviews and swatches, of course 😉

    hope your US angel comes to you bearing this palette!

    • @Connie – Thank you, aren’t her reviews and swatches fabulous? I’ve been a stalker for such a long time. She’s created more lemmings than she’ll ever know!

    I’m in Canada (where shipping is awwwwful) but if you can’t find yourself a US angel, I’d be more than happy to CP one for you for retail+tax and shipping! Feel free to send an email my way if you need it, ‘kay? :)

    Ooooor maybe a beauty exchange? since I know there are a few things that I want that are only sold in the UK! 😉

    • @Maggie – Thanks so much, that’s kind of you to offer. I would definitely be up for an exchange soon. I’m furiously saving for IMATS at the moment, but I will re-evaluate my bank balance early February and let you know! xxx

    I totally understand how you feel! There are so many things I crave for and cannot get them due to shipping costs or no international shipping policies. But as far as Kat Von D palettes are concerned, I have read several negative reviews about them. So maybe we shouldn’t feel so bad about that!

    • @Pasiphae – Thank you for sharing this, I’d heard mostly good things… but I do keep reminding myself of all the beautiful palettes that have barely seen any use from me so far… *sigh* If I end up not geting it, I won’t feel so bad now!

    Sure someone on MUA will have this? If you’d let me know before I went to the US I would so have brought it back for you :)

    Hope you get one soon! xx

    • @Gemma – hah! I never used to have anything worth swapping for on MUA… I should give it another go now I have a makeup collection to rival the best of them!

    So I went to go buy this palette in stores about a week ago and they are no longer stocking it in any of the sephoras around my area (I went to 3 different malls). I can only get this online now, which I bought it online. Along with the other LE Kat Von D palette, and the two that are permanent. The two that are permanent I bought it stores and have been using every day since i bought them and i LOVE them.
