Just like the rest of the beautiful Kylie Cosmetics Range, the infamous Bronze Kyshadow Palette has had all the beauty bloggers and vloggers head over heels in love. So naturally, I had to get my hands on it. The palette costs $42 (approximately £34.50) and contains nine gorgeous bronze eye-shadows – perfect for autumn. So without further ado, let’s get on with this review.
***SPOILER ALERT: I love it!***
Jasper is a matte cream-white eyeshadow – perfect as a base or for applying in the inner corners and on the brow bone
Quartz is a satin finish, warm champagne colour that has a slight shimmer running through it
Topaz is a warm hued brown shade that works wonders when used as a transition shade
Goldstone is a true bronze with hint of gold shimmer
Citrine is a bright orange, matte eye-shadow – perfect for adding a pop of colour to the lower lash line
Tiger Eye is a deep, matte golden brown. It is a shade or two darker than Topaz so when paired together they look amazing!
Hematite is a warm toned, chestnut brown that has a matte finish
Brozite is a really dark (almost black) matte, chocolate brown
Obsidian is your typical matte, black eye-shadow
My thoughts on the formulation
Being 100% honest before testing out these eye-shadows I was very sceptical to whether or not they would be as good as everyone says, as I did find that Kylie’s lip kits (although I love them) were very over rated. However, as soon as I swatched them, I knew they really were worth the hype. They are genuinely, the most pigmented eye-shadows that I have ever come across… ever. Each eye-shadow has an incredibly creamy consistency that I love, and they all blend like a dream (so they’re perfect if you’re lazy like me and can’t be bothered blending . They are quite dusty eye-shadows, and aren’t very long wearing if you don’t apply a base or a primer beforehand – but overall I’m obsessed.
Value for money
The palette costs around £34.40, plus a £12.20 international shipping fee ($14.95) and a £15 customs charge, so in total this palette costs (for an international customer like myself) around £61.60 which works out at £6.84 per eye-shadow. Pretty expensive I know, but I genuinely believe that it is worth every penny — and yes I do plan on buying the Burgundy Palette as soon as I have £61.60 in my bank account. My only teeny-tiny issue with this product (money wise) is that your spending an awful lot of money for a palette that has quite flimsy feeling packaging and doesn’t even come with a mirror. Other than that though — I’m a girl in love.
My overall feelings
Packaging – 5/10
Quality – 10/10
Value for money – 7/10
Pigmentation – 11/10
Longevity – 7/10
Overall – 8.5/10
Would I recommend – Definitely
I love this palette so much, so if you fancy splurging on an eye-shadow Platte I’d definitely recommend this beauty.
