Kat Von D Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.37 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows and one loose eyeshadow. I think everything comes together decently on the lid, but there are four weaker shades in the palette, which is nearly half. The sheerer, more dusty nature of Bloodmilk and Venom seemed problematic when swatched, but they actually applied and built-up better in practice than I expected (particularly Venom), which is partially due to my lids being more normal in skin type, while my arm is dry. I was surprised that Hieroglyph was weak at all, because it’s rare that a brand misses on a copper-hued shade. In a way, these are replicated in the Metal Crush range, though not the same in formula or fully dupes, but they share the more jewel-toned nature of the Metal Crush range. I would spend my money there, rather than this palette, if you really want richly pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable eyeshadow.
