Kat Von D "Adora" Eyeshadow Palette


When I first heard Kat Von D was coming out with a line of makeup, I scoffed a little, expecting it to be just another excuse for a celebrity to make a bit of cash on a generic makeup line.

Because they are a London-based company, it is usually costly to order internationally. However, with 30%, it made it worthwhile to try some products that I've heard a lot about.
