Kat Von D True Romance Pigments Swatches and Look

Kat Von D True Romance Pigments in Meditation and Ladyhawke
I came across these great Kat Von D eye shadow pigments through one of Kat's twitter posts a few months ago.  I forgot about them for a while until I happened to drop into the local Sephora store and there they were.  I grabbed two complimentary shades as I already had a basket full of other stuff (otherwise I probably would have bought all the shades).  It seems like I can't ever get out of that store for under $200!
The first color is Meditation.  This is a great color.  It is such a beautiful shimmery light brown.  I absolutely love the formula of these pigments.  They stick well to the makeup brushes and go on smoothly. A little bit goes a long way especially with eye shadow primer and they stay in place all day.
 Next is Ladyhawke.  I love this name.  Ladyhawke is a beautiful shimmery brownish plum.  I just love this color paired with Meditation.  Again, the formula is great.  It goes on smooth even when using it on the natural crease.

I  swatched these with primer as I use primer with all my eye shadows.  This picture was taken in sun.  I just love the shimmer of Meditation and the richness of Ladyhawke.  Incredible shades and formula once again Kat Von D hits it out of the park!
Kat Von D True Romance Pigments Look
Finally, here is the look I created using the Kat Von D True Romance Pigments.  First I used Kat Von D eye shadow primer in Skin.  On my lid I used Kat Von D True Romance Pigments in Meditation and Ladyhawke on the crease.  Brow is highlighted with Rehab from the Kat Von D true Romance Angeles palette.  I used Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper.  Mascara is Christian Dior Dior Show Waterproof in Black 90.

I love everything about this product and I have nothing bad to say about it.  I will definitely be getting more shades to try the next time I go to Sephora.  What do you think?  Comments are greatly appreciated.

  1. Thanks for swatching and reviewing these! Ever since I heard about these pigments, I've been curious about them.

    Meditation has gorgeous shimmer - looks like it's easy to wear for an everyday look, but can also be incorporated into a more dramatic look. I love versatile shadows.
