Why I won’t be buying KyShadow by Kylie Cosmetics



So, unless you’ve been living under a rock the past 9 months, you know that Kylie Jenner launched a makeup brand. She started off with lip kits and slowly moved into other lip products, and now she has moved into eye products. She just yesterday announced her birthday collection, which I’m not going to lie, a lot of them look very appealing; but before that, she launched her KyShadow Pallette. The pallette consists of 9 eyeshadows, and retails for $42. Now, a lot of people that aren’t getting the pallette are saying it’s because the shades are so common, but that’s not really an issue with me. It’s a bronze pallette, of course the shades would be similar to other bronze shades. The issue for me is that they don’t look to be great quality. I have a bunch of her lipkits and it took me awhile to get unbiased and see that they’re not really great quality. The first I ordered is True Brown K back in March, and that one is amazing. The formula is creamy but not too thick, now her lipkit formulas are so incredibly thin and drying. I also have Kourt K, which is such a beautiful shade but it’s so patchy. I’ll be doing a review on all of the lip kit, glosses and metals I have soon, so I’ll save the rest of this for that. Now back to the pallette, I think it’s way overpriced, especially since we’re only getting the shadows,no mirrow or brush; and also considering the fact that they’re not even great quality. I haven’t used them, but I can tell that while they’re not horrible, I could find something better with those $42 she’s asking, plus her outraging shipping fees.

I have nothing against Kylie, I mean I have so many of her products, and I think her lip glosses  and liners are probably one of the best out there, but she should revisit her lip kit formula. I’ll wait until reviews of the pallette start to roll in, so I can have a better look at the quality and see other people’s thoughts.

I definitely want to get the new lip kit Leo she’s releasing because the color is amazing, but I don’t want a crappy formula. I also think her creme shadows look amazing and great quality as well as the lip gloss.

Either way, I doubt I’ll get this pallette, I don’t believe it to be worth what she’s asking for it. Tell me your thoughts on it! Did you order it? Are you planning on it?

    I’m with you. If you’re interested Jaclyn Hill did a review and said its like a mini Morphe 35o palette which gives you 35 colors for 23$ plus shipping and they’re good quality shadows. I reviewed them recently on my blog

    I agree with you, I think the price of it plus all the shipping fees/custom fees makes it not worth it! They’re lovely shades, but you can definitely get dupes for them!
