Product Review | Kylie Cosmetics The Bronze Palette Kyshadow ($42, Kylie Cosmetics website)
According to the Kylie Cosmetics website, The #KylieCosmetics Kyshadow pressed powder eyeshadow palette is your secret weapon to create the perfect Kylie eye. Each Kyshadow Kit comes with 9 pressed powder eye shadows that can be used together to recreate Kylie’s favorite looks or customize your own.
Each Bronze Palette contains the following shades: Jasper (matte finish creamy beige), Quartz (satin finish champagne gold), Topaz (matte finish true taupe), Goldstone (satin finish bronze), Citrine (matte finish bright orange), Tiger Eye (matte finish light golden brown), Hematite (matte finish chestnut brown), Bronzite (matte finish chocolate brown), Obsidian (matte finish black).
The Kyshadow kit pressed powder eye shadows are talc and paraben free, have medium buildable coverage and a velvety smooth texture.
I am not really a fan of the Kardashian/Jenner clan (no hate attached) so when Kylie Cosmetics was released in 2016, it did not attract me to buy their products. However, after watching many YouTube reviews specifically about this Bronze Palette and a 20% sale during Cyber Monday enticed me to grab this palette (along with a liquid lipstick and a lipgloss) for a cheaper price. The products were packaged very well from the shipping box to each individual item. I was (and still am) obsessed with the holographic eyes postcard. The product was housed in a fitted box with a nice shimmery bronze trim around. The typography and design are minimal but excellent on the packaging. The words KYLIE KYSHADOW are on the box with the non-holographic eyes.
The palette itself has a hard cover casing with the KYLIE typography on the inside cover (no mirror). The outside cover mimics the typography and design of the fitted box. The eyeshadow palette comes with 9 beautiful colors. I specifically like mix of warm and neutral tones in this palette. It was rumored that the company that makes the eyeshadows on this palette is the same company that makes Colourpop. Anyway, the matte and the shimmer shades are nice and soft. They are easy to blend and are pigmented. Honestly, I was really surprised by the quality of these eyeshadows and how good they really are. The size of the pans are a tad bit bigger than single pan eyeshadows like MAC and Makeup Geek. For $42, each pan actually costs about $4.60, which I think is very affordable and a fair price point. MAC and Makeup Geek sells theirs for $6/pan.
My only complaint about this product is it only has two satin/shimmer shades. I wish it had at least four. Aside from that, I really love the quality and the price point of the product. I also love all the shades and I use all of them to create different eyeshadow looks. I also like that this palette can be used all year long, not seasonal shades as you can create a nice fresh look for spring and summer using this palette as well as darker shades for fall and winter. I find this palette versatile, as I hate it when I cannot use all of the shades in a palette, which for me translates to waste. Would I repurchase? Yes.
