I did promise a review of each of the KHROMA beauty palettes I received so here is the first, the Kourtney Kardazzle (I just cannot take that name seriously). It’s one of 3 available and is the warmest with a selection of neutrals and berry shades. Kim’s is cool and smokey and Khloe’s more bronze and natural. This would be a great selection for someone wanting to branch out in to colour but scared to stray too far from their ‘Naked Palette’. Within the kit you have 4 matte shadows, 4 shimmery shadows and 3 face powders.
First the shadow swatches. I used a primer underneath these so the fact that the first two matte shades are barely detectable is pretty poor but I will say that the darker two actually translate a lot better on the eyes that they appear here. The shimmery shades are beautiful, a little sheer and the do require a heavy application to really get the same kind of impact on the eyes but very nice none the less. Quality wise they remind me a lot of the MUA shadows but then you’re paying considerably more for these.
The face powders I believe are supposed to be a blush, a highlight and a bronzer but in this set the bronzer is a little pink for my taste. It’s sheer and I will wear it as a cheenk colour but I wouldn’t want to be applying it anywhere else on my face. The blush shade reminds me a lot of Desert Rose from MAC – for those who watched my first impressions I said it was Plum Foolery but have since realised my mistake. It had great payoff and would work on a lot of skin tones. The highlights is very golden and again a little too much for me but it does give a beautiful finish. They’re all lovely to apply but should be done so with a light hand as a little goes a very long way for me.
Overall between the shades swatched and seeing them on my face above I’ve decided this is put together for darker skin tones than mine. I would imagine Khloe’s Kardazzle would suit me more, I love these warmer shades but the cheek products are bold for a pale girl like me but if I was super tanned perhaps I’d revisit. I do however really like the set up of these palettes, they’re super compact, the mirror is a good size and if you’re happy with all of the products I think it’s perfect for travel. I think I will be purchasing the Khloe version for just that!
Have you tried anything from the KHROMA range yet?
