New Release | Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette | Review/Swatches




When Kylie launched The Bronze Palette which was the first of her eyeshadow palettes to be launched I will be honest I wasn't too keen on the shades so never really paid much interest. I do know there was a lot of positive reviews around it. Then we were shown sneak peeks of the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette and that got my attention straight away!

The Burgundy palette has basically got all the shades that are super popular right now, since the Violet Voss Holy Grail kick started the trend of with the wine shades and bronzes I've seen most brands releasing their take, Kylie has done exactly that too.

This palette comes in sturdy white cardboard packaging with simple designing on the top, all the shade names have been mentioned on the back and once opened it has Kylie's name imprinted, also if I remember right it has a magnet mechanism which keeps it shut. I would say the palette itself is roughly the size of MAC's 9 eyeshadow palettes.

Firstly I would like to mention for 9 eyeshadows this palette for us international peeps ends up working out around the £50/£55 mark including customs etc which lets face it is pretty pricey to say we only get 9 eyeshadows. The packaging I have to say they have done a brilliant job with although for the price tag I would've expected a mirror included as it seems a little strange just printing Kylie on the inside of the lid, I personally feel that should be on the front of the palette. The colour selection that they have gone for in this palette I actually think is on point though the shade 'Naked' (first one) is a sandy shimmery type of shade I am not too sure what I'd use this for, if it was a matte eyeshadow it would have worked well as a transition shade on the other hand I couldn't use this as a highlighter shade either. The rest of the shades although they vary slightly in texture, I do have to say they're well pigmented and picked up very easily for finger swatches. Overall I do like this palette other than the few niggles and I'd love to see what she has in store going further.
