Yes, the Kardashians have now launched their own make up range – it was only a matter of time eh? I have to say I was skeptical when I first heard it, yet another celebrity launch *yawn* but I have to say once I heard about the Kardazzle Palettes I was eager to get a closer look.
As part of the range, each of the three sisters, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe has designed her own palette which allows us to recreate their individual looks. Each palette contains eight eye shadows, a blusher, a bronzer and a highlighter and retails at €16.95.
For the past week, I’ve been trying out Kourtney’s Kardazzle and at first, I was surprised at the size of the palette which is not much bigger than a credit card but it’s neatness allows it to be carried easily in a small handbag for nights out or day long event such as weddings where top ups are always needed.
The appearance of the palette left me a little disappointed – the plastic printed casing certainly doesn’t have a luxury feel to it such as the Urban Decay Naked Palette but it is about half the price I suppose! So what does it look like inside then?
The top row of eyeshadows are matt and the first two quite pale so would be suitable for highlighting the lid and brow bone. While the two colours on the top right give a much better colour pay off and can be used all over the lid for a neutral, everyday look.
The bottom row of shadows are full of sparkle and really rich colours which can be combined to give a create a more smokey, evening look . They are easy to work with and I didn’t find much fall out from them. The two shades on the right could also be used as highlighters.
The blush, highlighter & bronzer are all contained in a pull out tray underneath the shadows. As you can see from the swatches, the blush is a rosy pink shade which is complimented by the creamy highlighter, this looks a lot whiter in the palette than it does when applied – both items need to be blended well. The bronzer however, is a rather muddy brown and I would suggest a light hand when using this to avoid a dirty face!
Overall, this palette is very good value for money and I will certainly continue to use it for daytime looks.
Other items from the current range include Kim’s Au Natural Lip Set which looks interesting, a Mascara Quartet and the Shebang Eye Transformation Kit which range from €17.95 to €26.95 and can be purchased from Cloud10 Beauty right now!* This item was kindly received as a PR sample
