It’s true, I eventually jumped on the Kylie Cosmetics bandwagon after recently purchasing the well-spoken about Burgundy Eyeshadow Palette.
To be fair, I was always one of ‘those people’ who said that I would never spend my money on Kylie Cosmetics… From import tax, shipping fees and customs charges, I could never quite justify spending that amount of money on a celebrities beauty brand! Although, low and behold I did and I have!
The Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Eyeshadow Palette is one that caught my attention and with that interest practically straight of the way.
From online reviews to seeing this palette all over social media, it is fair to say that I have not invested my money into this product blindly. Which is why, I, also REALLY wanted to pick more than one of these palettes up when making my online order… One for me and one for a giveaway. I realise that Kylie Cosmetics is a difficult brand to get hold off, especially for those of us who don’t live in the US – So what better way to show my appreciation and thanks to Jellybluesblog supporters than offer one of these amazing palettes in a giveaway?!?
ONE FOR ME, ONE FOR YOU.
The palette itself contains nine (you guessed it!) burgundy-themed shadows. From five easy mattes to one satin, there are also three metallic shadows too within this palette.
Some may say that this palette is rather versatile. From a wearable, everyday style of glam, you can also build these shadows up to achieve something more desirable, boujee and seductive too.
To be brutally honest with you all, I just can’t say that the packaging of this palette is all that impressive, as it does appear a little on the cheap side in my opinion – especially once compared to this products $42 price tag!!!
The size of this palette is also worth mentioning because it definitely shocked me when I first saw it –
From seeing this eyeshadow palette online, I had always expected quite an impressive and substantially sized product, however, I just can’t say that this is. Perhaps this is my own fault, expecting it to be something that it never claimed to be… but this is a somewhat small sized product that is rather lightweight as well.
To be totally honest with you all, I would have to tell you that I am a fan of the Burgundy Eyeshadow Palette by Kylie Cosmetics!
To apply, I must say that each shadow in the Burgundy Palette, applies really quite lovely in my opinion. With a smooth yet soft, saturated formula, each eyeshadow is richly pigmented too as far as I am aware! With the beautiful pigmentation with each one of these shadows, I really like ‘packing’ and ‘building’ the metallic shades from this palette directly onto my lids. Combining the shades together and creating something somewhat unique, I love how you are able to combine different textures and finishes on the eyes with this one palette alone.
To blend, I must say that each one of these shadows works like a dream in my opinion. You can apply the metallic shades to the lids with your fingers or even a flat makeup brush. So they are very versatile in that respect. To create and achieve a look really quite seamless and flawless, however, I would definitely recommend the use of a large, fluffy blending brush. As seamless, flawless blending is exactly what these types of makeup brushes are designed and made for.
From taking a swatch of one of these shadows straight from the pan to then applying one to the lids – I can assure you that each colour is very true and certainly not different to how it appears in the palette.A number of shades AND finishes combined together create a very effective look on the lids, which is thankfully not muddy or patchy in appearance either.
In all, I must tell you that I just love how effortless this palette is to use. From the ease of applying one of these shadows to then blending it out, you can also re-apply if required throughout the day and also just really intensify your eye look by packaging on some more product! So, to be perfectly honest with you all, this palette definitely gets a big thumbs up from me!
