True Romance Eyeshadow Palette - Metal Orchestra
A smoky eye adds an instant air of mystery -- create your own with the Metal Orchestra Eyeshadow Palette. Designed by reality television star Kat Von D especially for Sephora, this artistic spectrum of shades brings an edgy-glam creativity to your makeup. The sleek black eyeshadow palette is stenciled with silver roses and arrives packaged in a silk-screened black and silver box that is itself a work of art -- and inspired by Kat's favorite tattoo.
What else you need to know:
The Metal Orchestra Palette includes an octet of shades:
- First Class
- Razor Gray
- Slayer cream shadow
- Along with two double-ended applicator brushes
Out of all of the palettes that came out when Kat Von D first launched her makeup line, this one remains to be my favorite still. The blues and greys are absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention it includes a matte black shadow, which is a must! I probably use that the most out of this whole thing!
Either way, I really wish she would stop putting those gross cream eyeshadows in her palettes. I've never even HEARD of anyone being able to even use them. So that's a loss, which sucks, because in this one it's silver, and it just looks so damn pretty.
I do have TONS of fallout with these shadows though. The little brushes she includes with it, honestly only makes that worse. They are pretty useless.
Aside from the cream color, this palette is perfect!
I -love- blues and this was my first time buying a Kat Von D palette, based on this, I'm going to buy many more. I love the pigmentation and the sparkly dark blue is my favorite out of all the colors. The set includes a wonderful matte black that can be used in many looks. I would highly recommend it, only I would warn that the cream color is totally useless.
I love this pallet the colors blend well and go on smoothly.. The colors are very pigmented alone and if you put on a white base(nyx milk) the colors pop more.. But what I really like about this palette you use it year round and create MANY different looks with it . The colors are all frosted and shimmer except for Lucifer which is a matte Black. My favorite of them is Thrasher which is a deep blue shimmer. With the cream shadow you have to reallllyyyy rub your finger in it to warm it up and catch color. These colors are great on all skintones!
*First Class (white with silver glitter)
* Techno (azure blue with glitter)
*Thrasher (sapphire blue with shimmer)
*Dagger (matte navy blue with sparkles)
* Lucifer (matte black)
*Glock (gunmetal silver shimmer-also in the adora palette)
* Razor Gray (medium grayed silver that) has slight green undertones on brown skin!
* Slayer cream shadow (shiny metallic silver-also in the adora palette)
This is such a great palette and it is very pigmented, the only downfall is the cream shadow because it dries out within a few months which isn't very long.
Great For A Smokey Eye
I have always been a big fan of Kat Von D and was really drawn to this palette because of the blue shades. I have used it a couple of times, primarily for the shades dagger, glock, and razor gray, and the colors seem to stay on very well with a good primer. I have not found much use for the cream shadow and from other reviews have heard a few complaints about it. Other than that though, I would definitely recommend this palette to anyone who likes darker shades, and I think these colors really complement any eye color, especially brown.
I love this palette and this is probably my fave from her in line. The only shadow I don't like is the cream one cause its hard to work with. I love the techno shadow and Dagger shadow the most
This palette is great except for the cream shadow. It was nice for a bit, but it dries out. I really don't think it's necessary. I love the blue colors for a smokey eye. I've used this so many times for long hard nights of partying and it always stays on my eyes.
Overall, I like this palette. I bought it at Sephora with a gift card. I don't think I would pay $34 out of my own pocket. I bought it for the color "Dagger" which is a beautiful dark blue with some bright blue sparkles. The blues and greys are nice but I don't ever use the white shade. I HATE the cream shadow, it makes my lids look lumpy and wrinkly and it's dried out way too fast.
