I finally received my KKW Beauty order and it literally feels like it’s been a lifetime 😂. I was so excited when Kim Kardashian announced she collaborated with Mario to celebrate their ten years of friendship and the collection looked so stunning!
The collection consisted of:
- A 10 pan eyeshadow palette RRP $45
- A creme lipstick RRP $20
- Two glosses RRP $18 each
I ended up purchasing the whole bundle which was only $85 but was worth $101 which is a pretty good deal to be fair.
I don’t know which product to start off with so I think I’m going to start with my favourite which is the eyeshadow palette.
Firstly I think the packaging is really boring and I feel like more thought could’ve been made when designing the other packaging as it doesn’t really stand out at all.
However I think the 10 shades in the palette are so pretty and really represent Kim as they are colours she would actually wear. I really appreciate the blue shade in the palette too as it really stands out from the neutral shades.
Here is my swatch:
I cannot express how shocked I am over the quality of the eyeshadows! The feel so buttery and they have the most insane pigment, I’m shook! I really didn’t expect the eyeshadow palette to be good as there was so much hype surrounding Kim and Mario’s collaboration.
Next up is the creme lipstick which is called Classic K and it’s soft peach with a beige undertone.
I’m going to be honest I’m not overly impressed with the size of the lipstick as for $20 I would expect way more product.
Anyway here is my swatch:
I really love this lipstick and I’m obsessed with the formula as it’s creamy and has such a lovely satin finish.
Last but not least is the two lip glosses which are called Juicy and Super Nude.
Juicy is a natural sheer peach with a subtle pink pearl and Super Nude is a pale sheer nude with a gold pearl.
I love the shade Juicy as it looks amazing on top of the Classic K lipstick. However I’m not a huge lover of the shade Super Nude as I already have similar lip glosses and just feel the shade is a bit boring.
The formula was really pigmented but I found the lip gloss was overly sticky and it wasn’t really enjoyable to wear it. However I think if I had put a lighter layer on I could’ve avoided this.
Overall I love the KKW X Mario collaboration as the eyeshadow palette is simply stunning! However I feel neutral about the lip products as the lipstick was gorgeous but I was disappointed in the amount of product and the lip glosses didn’t really wow me.
