I picked this one up out of curiosity--would it be any good or is a celeb name slapped on there but lacking in quality? I've been using the Kylie Jenner The Bronze Palette for the past week. You've seen in on my social media--any pics of me lately have me wearing it--and since her Kyshadows palette (klever!) is in high demand, I decided to share my review.
Purchase: Kyliecosmetics.com (Currently sold out)
What's In It? 9 shadows: 2 satin, 7 matte in neutral (bronze) shades
-No parabens, no talc, cf as far as I know (please don't attack the messenger)
Here's the outside of the palette. It's a bit smaller than I expected, but not tiny. It has a white, slick cardboard packaging with magnetic closure. Most high-end brands have at least one palette with this packaging, so I don't see this as a big deal.
I do wish it had a mirror inside.
|Jasper, Quartz, Topaz|
Goldstone, Citrine, Tiger Eye
Hematite, Bronzite, Obsidian
These are .05 ounces each, so it's about $4.66 per shadow. That's not bad considering MAC is the same size and is $6 per shadow.
These are brush swatches, since I don't apply shadows generally with my fingers.
The texture of these is soft, not gritty, and not powdery. There is little kick back on 2 of the shadows.
Overall, a great palette, surprisingly. Nice medium buildable coverage. If you have lots of neutral palettes, there's no need to get this one, but I do like the palette and it works well for travel.
- I've joined the trend with the metal tumblers--like the Yeti--but I have the $10 knock off version. It works SO well! I tested it on Snapchat! #Ozark!!
- I've also been loving my YSL Lip Creams I got last month--mine are engraved with my name and the colors are pretty.
- Happy belated anniversary to my mom and step-dad. I've got vacation-brain (where I forget the date), so I forgot until late last night! Love y'all and see you soon!
