Kylie Cosmetics is also another newer line that has been pumping out so many new products lately like the “Calm Before the Storm” and “Eye of the Storm” Kyshadow Palettes in honor of the birth of her daughter “Stormi” that launched this past spring with the most recent being the “Extended Bronze” Eyeshadow Palette that launched online on May 2, 2018. I have never tried any of the Kylie cosmetics line but have always wanted to (and drooling for a long time over the “Wet Set” highlighter palette that everyone raves about) so when I saw this new palette from the line and it’s bronzy, golds, ivories, and earth tones that spoke to me (also being a perfect summer palette) I had to purchase it and test it out.
The palette has 12 shades in it and comes in white sturdy, solid cardboard packaging with gorgeous gold foiled lettering with Kylie’s name on it. It also comes with a white and gold trimmed eye blending brush similar to the Mac 217. The shades are named (top row left to right) “Jasper” (a soft ivory), “Quartz” (a matte cranberry with some gold sparkle), Citrine” (an earthy orange matte), “Chakra” (an antique gold), “Goddess” (a sparkling brown cranberry), “Pyrite” (a sparkling bronze gold), (and bottom row left to right) “Tiger Eye” (an tan-brown matte), “Topaz” (a soft mauve-brown), “Amber” (an amber bronze shimmer), “Copper” (a copper orange shimmer), “Hematite” (a red-brown earthy matte), “Bronzite” (a dark chocolate-brown matte). There are a good balance of shimmers, satins, and mattes in the palette to create many different looks for sommer or any other season.
The palette itself runs for $45.00 with each pan having a good amount of product in it (kind of comparable to MUFE single eyeshadows size). The formula of the shadows overall is really pigmented; more so for some of the shimmers than the mattes but of good quality pigmentation. I think my favorites are “Amber”, “Goddess”, “Copper”, ( for the shimmers), “Quartz”, “Topaz”, “Hematite” (for the mattes).
So, overall I am pretty impressed with Kylie’s new palette and think the timing of the launch for the palette is perfect and also it being a great palette for summer have for the summer!
