Very kindly, the company HiSmile, sent me a few bits including the Kylie Cosemtics The Royal Peach Palette. I was really excited about this because I didn’t have any of the Kyshadow Palettes before I got this one, and everyone all over the internet raves about them. I saw this palette on Zoella’s PO Box Haul and I really wanted to try it out. I feel that peach makeup products are very trendy to own right now for example this product and I know Too Faced have a peach range. I have also just realised that when I took this photo I forgot to put the brush that comes with it back in the palette. I think it is now and forever lots with my massive pot of brushes which seems to consume all of my brushes!
My first impressions of the palette was a bit mixed. I didn’t realise it had cardboard packaging and I thought it was plastic. However the white and the rose gold together are stunning and it also has a mirror which is incredibly handy because the majority of my eyeshadow palettes don’t have a mirror.
The colours in the palette are stunning, and there is a big variety, from browns and coppers to pinks and then to the bright blue shade. They can all go together well so you can create an endless amount of looks. Needless to say I haven’t quite gotten used to it enough yet to be daring and try that colour, however if I were to do it I would have a peachy eye and then put Royal i.e the blue shade on my bottom lash line. The colours all have names as well and they are super cute! For example the green shade is called Mojito and the purple shade is called North Star. I always love when the shadows have names because I just feel it is really cute and you can tell a lot of effort has gone into the product.
Starting with the brush, when I first used the brush, I only use the brush that came with it so I could get a feel for it. I personally don’t like the brush. I found it scratchy and not dense enough to blend the Kyshadows out efficiently enough. I did find it better for applying the colour in the base of the lid and it will definitely be staying in my brush collection because it is super pretty.
The first look I did I took the shade Sandy and swept this into my crease as a sort of transition shade and contour shade for my eye. This is a orangey brown shade which matches my skin tone really well. I then put Mojito across my lid and blended it into Sandy. Mojito has to be my favourite shade of them all, one because it matches my green coat and new embroidered boots, but also because I just think it is a stunning colour. I also did a look with it and a darker green shade from another palette in the outer corners and I really liked it. My eyes are green so it matched well.
I did find the shades a little hard to blend and it took me a while of blending, then reapplying it to the areas I wanted, and blending it again to get the look I wanted. They aren’t the longest lasting eyeshadows either and I did notice that, however they are really pigmented, especially the copper shade Duchess. I also did a peachy eye the other day, using Crush and Duke, and it was a bit out there however I thought it was stunning and it was very pigmented.
Overall I like the shades and I think they are stunning, however I was just a little let down by the brush. It is rather expensive, if you are like me living in the UK then you will also have hefty shipping expenses too, however if you want it then its worth the shot!
Have you got any of the Kyshadow Palettes?
