When I heard that Kat Von D had a new all-matte eyeshadow palette, I was so excited and could hardly wait to see it! You all know how I LOVE me some matte eyeshadows!
And I’m happy to report that the Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette does not disappoint this matte-eyeshadow-loving girl!
The Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette has 8 matte eyeshadows in some really great shades, plus a mini Autograph Eye Liner Pencil too- all at a pretty great price point of $43 CDN.
Shades pictured from left to right: Für Elise, Vespertine, Renholdër, Siouxsie-sioux, Unrequited, Harlow, Wölf, Cleopatra

The eyeshadows in the Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette are made with Rose extract and jojoba oil, vitamin E, and cottonseed oil, so even though they are matte, they have some moisturizing properties to them. Most of them feel smooth to the touch, with just a couple feeling a bit chalky. They do vary in pigmentation, with some being more opaque than others, BUT they all work really well on the eye, are buildable and blend extremely well. I think it’s a really well done matte palette, even though it tends to be on the warmer side.
In this look I’m wearing Renholdër on the lid, with Cleopatra blended into the crease. I lined my bottom lash line with Für Elise, and then used the Immortal Love liner on my waterline. Kat Von D Autograph eye pencils are pretty decent and are waterproof and smudgeproof. They are really soft and creamy though, so be careful when sharpening them!
My favourite shades in the Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette are Für Elise because it’s a really pretty warm eggplant purple shade that’s beautiful as a matte. I also really like Cleopatra of course-even though it’s getting harder for me to wear warm shades like my beloved oranges. I’m still drawn to them though and it makes me a little sad, but pretty soon I’ll have to give up warm oranges like this pretty soon. Oh well!
If you love mattes, then I think the Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette is worth taking a look at! It’s great to have a palette of matte eyeshadow colours to use with some of your other shimmery shadows. At my eye age, a matte eyeshadow in the crease is a must! If I use something with glitter particles, they tend to settle in my fine lines and highlight them like an airplane runway. I’m not even kidding! It’s the weirdest thing to see but it really happens! Maybe I’ll try and get a picture for you sometime to show you.
You can find the Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette at Sephora right now!
