Serpentina

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.

Bloodmilk

Bloodmilk is a muted, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was drier, a little grainy (which is something that occurs with redder eyeshadows on occasion), so the color tended to apply more sheerly. It was blendable, and it was buildable on the eye for me, but I would recommend primer or a white base to really make the color true-to-pan. The color lasted for eight hours on me.

Medusa

Medusa is a muted, medium-dark antique gold with olive undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation, was slightly denser and firmer in the pan, but easy enough to work with on the eye. The color wore well for eight hours.

Ankh

Ankh is a blackened brown with bronze micro-shimmer over a mostly matte finish. The texture was dusty and harder to build-up beyond semi-opaque coverage; it will help darken and works if you prefer a more buildable contrast shade than an in-your-face black eyeshadow. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

Queen

Queen is a muted, medium-dark burgundy with warm undertones and a pearly finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but it was thinner and a little drier in consistency. I found it fairly easy to apply and blend out, and the color wore well for eight hours before creasing.

Hieroglyph

Hieroglyph is a medium, orange-copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but it had a much firmer consistency where the majority of the color portion was harder to get coverage out of, while the shimmer separated more readily from the pan. This shade started to fade after seven hours on me.

Scarab

Scarab is a medium-dark green with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. This shade was richly pigmented, smooth, and very blendable. It was one of the better shades in the palette. On me, it wore well for a solid eight hours.

Venom

Venom is a muted, medium-dark purple with a matte finish. It had a thinner, dustier consistency that was prone to sheering out and harder to apply evenly. It was a shade that worked well to blend out the edge of another color in the crease, but it was really hard to work with as a lid shade, as it was just too uneven and sheer. The color lasted for six and a half hours before fading.

Prophet

Prophet is a medium-dark, green-tinged gold with a metallic finish. It applied well both wet and dry with opaque coverage that remained blendable and wore for eight hours; the major difference is the base color is deeper and the finish more metallic when it is applied damp.
