Kyshadows

The brand that many makeup junkies like myself had to try was the trending #KylieCosmetics eyeshadows. Kylie Jenner, little sister to the tv reality stars, the Kardashians, launched Kylie Cosmetics last year after the success of launching her liquid lip sticks and glosses. After revealing the Kylie Lip Kits to the world, her fans of course wanted more and she delivered. She created a platform for herself, sharing her best kept beauty secrets to her fans. I purchased her three eyeshadow palettes because I was curious. The three palettes available are: the bronze palette, the burgundy palette and the royal peach palette. I can honestly say that I like her eyeshadow formula’s and will remain a customer. Out of the three, my favorite one is the bronze palette. Although, I do think her palette’s are a little too pricey, but coming from a family of entrepreneurs, her customers are obviously paying for the brand name. The company that I found most similar that I also use is Colour Pop. I would suggest them as the alternate go to brand because they are more cost effective. Kylie products, like many brands nowadays, are not tested on animals and are talc and paragon free. The eyeshadows have medium buildable coverage and a velvety smooth texture. The pigmentation on a scale of 1-10, would be a 7.5.

The Burgundy Palette

The Burgundy palette was released on October 20th, 2016. It comes with 9 pressed powder eye shadows that can be used together to create your very own customized look. My 3 favorite colors that I often use from this palette are: penny, burgundy, and almond. I am attracted to earth tones and this palette did it for me. It was definitely the palette I overused for the fall. the burgundy shade is the perfect color to create a fall smokey-eye using browns and oranges. For the ladies out there that want to spin on your neutrals, this is the palette for you.

The Bronze Palette

The Bronze palette was the first palette to be released. This one is my favorite. I can wear all the shades to work without being over the top. It comes with 9 pressed powder eye shadows that can be used to create the perfect neutral eye. It was a smart decision that a black eye shadow was included because it makes it easy to transform my day look into an evening look. My 3 favorite colors from this palette are: hematite, bronze and quartz.When I am not sure what look I am going for, this is the palette I run to. It makes it easy because all the colors are neutral, it doesn’t matter what color I may choose for my lip, I still manage to create a quick put together look without the effort. It ‘s a great travel palette  and I would recommend this to be your first purchase if you consider investing in any Kyshadows.

The Royal Peach Palette

This palette was released January 2017. I would consider this the super-sized and upgraded version in comparison to the previously released palettes. The Royal Peach palette has 12 eye shadow shades and also includes a brush and a mirror. Unlike the square compacted palettes like before, this one is long and rectangular. There are 11 warm-toned shimmer shades and one bright, royal blue hue. I could have done without it the brush because it doesn’t apply the shadows very well. On the brighter side of things, the shadows are actually quite pigmented.The mattes, which I prefer, were easy to use, blendable, and mostly buildable. Duke, Duchess and Cinnamon are the tones I use the most. Although, this is a very fun palette because of all the shimmer and lets not forget about that gorgeous royal blue, it is not a must have palette. It is a nice to have palette, but there are other options out there that would get more use. I find that I have to use other palette’s to enhance this one. If there were more matte shades vs the metallic, than I could have possibly felt different. A great gift option for someone who already has many make-up products. This palette will only enhance a  makeup junkie’s collection. Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 10.25.44 PM
