I've just posted about how I like the look of the Serpentina eyeshadow palette by Kat Von D that is available on the Sephora site, but that I was unsure about risking buying it or not.
However I've just read one of Kat's instagram posts, and by the picture she says that the stock is low and at the rate it's going the palette is expected to sell out within the next fortnight. I don't know if it'll be relaunched when the brand lands in the UK later this year, so after umming and ahhing I have now decided to risk the international shipping [see my last post for my rant] and have placed an order. So now I want to let other people who are undecided that the palette is almost gone.
Lets see the palette in more detail...
"The inspiration for this palette came more from a sentiment versus an actual muse. But if I had to choose a physical representation, I'd say it's inspired by the essence of Egypt—Cleopatra to be specific. Although she's portrayed as one of the most beautiful women in history, the truth is, her most powerful qualities were her intelligence and self-creation. She was the original pioneering woman" - Kat Von D
This signature triple-milled, high-pigment eye shadow formula delivers instant, true color payoff and silky blendability, so you can experiment with layering and mix and match finishes for a stunning dimensional look. Then, let your creativity run wild with Prophet, the gold loose pigment. From gilding lids to flecking brows, this little pot takes Serpentina to the next level. With exclusive artwork hand-drawn by Kat Von D, this palette will inspire you to channel your inner Egyptian queen to create rich, jeweled eye looks.
Shades and shade descriptions: Bloodmilk (matte brick red), Medusa (bronze shimmer), Ankh (matte black with gold glitter), Queen (rust glitter), Hieroglyph (copper shimmer), Nile (ocean blue shimmer), Scarab (emerald shimmer), Venom (matte royal purple), Prophet (fool's gold loose pigment).

Order the palette here for $45 [about £35]. International shipping is $16 [about £12].
Remember that in the US tax is added separately to the cost of the item, unlike in the UK where it is included in the price (so over here the palette would be around £47 to buy).
