Giving Kylie Cosmetics another try - Is it worth your money?! + GIVEAWAY

by - Sunday, September 16, 2018


Hi everyone! 

Few months ago I created a post about Kylie Cosmetics - which you can find HERE - and if you have read it, you are probably aware that I wasn't that happy with half of the products I got from the company. My last order from them was probably last year before summer holidays when the Kylie Cosmetics x KKW collection dropped. Since then, I did not think of ordering anything from her website - firstly because I hate paying custom charge on top of that crazy money she charges for her products and second because half of the products I got from her weren't used by me. I've always wanted to try her KyShadows, especially the Burgundy Palette, because I've heard so many good stuff about it and with time her new collections started to temp me all over again. I do think Kylie stepped up her game with her items and although they are a bit expensive, some are actually worth it. I finally gave in and ordered the Burgundy palette that I wanted to have for so long. 

PS. This post includes a GIVEAWAY, so make sure you read till the end to find out how to enter it to win Kylie Cosmetics!



The packaging is stunning but I think it can be a little tricky to tell them apart for people who own both Burgundy and the Bronze palette. I have the Holiday 2016 palette and thankfully it's silver so it stands out from this one and I don't get them mixed up. The palette costs $42 and has 9 shades, which is expensive considering she has other palettes that come with 12/14 shades for $44. I got the new version of the palette as it comes with the mirror and honestly, I feel bad for those who got it when it first launched and paid the same amount as me but got their palettes without a mirror, if it was me I would probably be a bit annoyed that she didn't attach a mirror at the first launch. I also think that if I'm ever going to get any other palettes from her, it would definitely not be the 9 eyeshadow ones - I think if you're willing to spend the 40 something dollars on a palette, you might as well go for one that has more than 9 shadows in it. Am I the only one who thinks that way? Lol. 



I honestly love this palette! The swatches are so beautiful and the colours are so pigmented. The only shade I had trouble swatching was 'Burgundy' but it performs so much better on the eyes. I can be critical about Kylie Cosmetics items but this isn't one of them. Her Kyshadows are truly good and I'm not sure if I can say worth it's price considering how expensive they are, but I would truly recommend them to everyone. There is fall out with the shimmer shades but one way to fix it, that doesn't necessary work with other, cheaper brands is to spray setting spray on a brush before applying the shimmer - the brush will keep all of it and apply it to the lid without any fall out. 


If you're somebody who doesn't think Kylie Cosmetics is worth spending so much money on - I understand. I do think you can get similar items (not dupes) from cheaper brands such as Colourpop, but I do also think that some of the products sold by Kylie Cosmetics are very good and worth it - such as the Burgundy Palette. There are many items that will work for you and plenty that will not and in my case, I hated the matte liquid lipsticks and found them to be soo drying, but on the other hand I fell in love with eyeshadow palettes that Kylie Cosmetics has released. I'm sure that Kylie Cosmetics, just like any other company, will have something for everyone, so if you're somebody willing to try it out I'd say go for it. If there is one thing everyone should try from Kylie Cosmetics - it is definitely her eyeshadow palettes! Forget the lip kits - the Burgundy Palette is B-O-M-B!

Do you own any items/eyeshadow palettes from Kylie Cosmetics? If so, which ones and what are your opinions on it? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I wanted to add my email as for some reason my reviews are coming up as unknown on here. My name is Karmen Letourneau and my email is Karmenletourneau79@gmail.com I do believe I read this review before and although I haven't tried any of Kylie's products yet (being an only working parent right now finances have been tight)but would love to try her eyeshadow palettes. I agree with you also if your going to splurge go for the palette with more pans/colors as for the price why not get a good amount and they are almost the same price just one has only 9 colors. Seems like a no brainer to me. Thanks for the review and if I had the chance to try her products I would. I saw someone was raving about a highlighter they won on your page and others rave as well so obviously her products are good. I LOVE colourpop eyeshadows so much, they are my favorite eyeshadow brand hands down!

  19. I've tried to submit a comment a couple of times ready, so forgive if this double or triple posts, but I still don't see my comment and want to make sure I'm entered in the giveaway properly!
    This is an awesome blog girl! I've never tried Kylie's shadows before so this is a great review and insight. The only Kylie Cosmetics product I own is a lip kit in the shade Apricot. I love the idea of kits! The liner is super creamy, and liquid lip makes my lips look and feel soo soft! Very long lasting as well.
    I am stoked for her Halloween collection! Her packaging kills 😍

  21. I honestly love Kylie's products. Yes I think they're expensive but her velvet lipsticks are my absolute favorite lip products out of all that I have. I also love all the packaging and designs of her products. I'm really interested in her new collection that just came out, the kyliexjordan and would love to try anything, especially the partner in crime lipgloss though 😍

  25. I have tried a few pallets by Kylie. I tried the take me on vacation and the purple palette. I really like the ‘take me on vacation’ the colors blended very well. I did not care for the purple palette. I had the hardest time blending. I would love to try the Sorta Sweet, the burgundy palette and her new Halloween palette.
