I may of not need another eyeshadow palette, but as I’m quite a big fan of the Kylie Cosmetics lipsticks I thought why not give an eye palette a go (and I’m so glad I did). I’ve been using the palette a lot recently and there are so many variations you can do, and today I’m going to show you my favourite.
I picked up the Burgundy palette, as those shades are my utmost favourite. In this you get 9 warm tone red/brown tones, with 5 matte shades are 4 shimmers. Aside from the colour range, the most important thing people want to know is how the shadows perform. I’ve got to say, they did exceed my expectations, especially the red shades as I hear they can be a little hard to formulate. They are pretty creamy and very easy to blend, and the red toned mattes aren’t patchy at all like some can be. For the shimmers, these are super gorgeous. All 4 are really pigmented and even more so when applied with a wet brush. The darkest shade (Dubai) does sometimes give fall out but it’s easy to clean up, plus I tend to always do my eyes first when applying my makeup.
The shades never crease on me and last throughout an entire day. My tip is, I usually set my makeup with MAC Fix+ that helps everything stay that bit longer to.
Although these shades appear to be more Fall/Winter appropriate, I will sure be using the top matte shades along with the gold shimmers throughout the Spring and Summer. You can literally create so many different eye looks with this palette it’s quite crazy.
My favourite look to do with this palette is a burgundy eye, of course. For this I use Beach and Penny as my transition shades, Burgundy and Brick in the outer v and Dubai all over the lid. For the bottom lash line I smudge all 4 matte shades one by one for a smoky finish. I always pair this look with Dolce K by Kylie Cosmetics as I think the pair match gorgeously.
