s1423706-main-LheroThis week’s Gorgeous Giveaway features a Los Angeles favorite tattoo artist—Kat Von D. We have 3 Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palettes in Star-Crossed (a $20 value) to give to our lucky winners. The palette contains four mesmerizing shades: Hyperballad (pearlized silver), Scandinavian (pearlized taupe), Ville (pearlized eggplant), and Oceansize (pearlized blue). All four are perfect for creating that smokey-eye look we all want but they also are subtle enough to wear to, let’s say, the office.

Kat Von D has a wonderful line of makeup, but this palette is especially great. Apply just one layer and it goes on shimmery; add more layers and the color becomes increasingly vibrant with each coat. The final look is gritty but very mysterious. Kat Von D eyeshadows blend fabulously, even without primer, and are very long lasting. If you’re looking for an intense and dramatic look, then this giveaway is definitely for you! Kat Von D’s makeup is cruelty free and made without parabens.

  29. Barbara F Says:

    I’ve been wearing MAC out of habit for many years. There are so many brands & colors to choose from, that unless I am handed something specific to try, I just stay with what I know. Just choosing colors from within the brand that I know is overwhelming enough, let alone taking on another brand and all of it’s choices.

  31. magentaruby1 Says:

    I’ve been trading off with Clinique and Ulta eye shadows. I tend to go for plum eye shadow because it brings out the colors in my eyes, and goes with my blush and lipstick. The giveaway you’re offering has some cool colors.
