My first instince says- that hell no, I wouldn’t buy it.  Then I went and checked out the full line exclusively at Sephora – and I gotta say, it ain’t that bad!  To check out all of Kat’s products, go here!  Check out that Eyeshadow Palette below!  Those are great colors!

Created by Kat Von D, tattoo artist, reality-TV star, and owner of High Voltage Tattoo, this edgy color collection exemplifies old-Hollywood glamour with an L.A. vibe. As her gorgeous face leads on, Kat is as masterful with makeup as she is with a tattoo gun. (She can throw on a full, flawless face of makeup in 15 minutes, flat. Now that’s on point.) Accordingly, her passion for makeup and self-expression is inked, so to speak, into every expert product she’s created. From pin-up perfection to rocker chic, this limited-edition lineup allows you to tap into your bad-girl side and unleash your inner artist.
