Palette of The Week: Kyshadow The Burgundy Palette…

As well all know, I’m possibly the first to cave to almost every Kylie Cosmetics release. Mock as I may, I still lust after her products. I’ve mentioned before that I think we can all agree that the Kyshadow palettes are some of the most exciting things to come out of the cosmetics line. Partially because both palettes have had absolutely gorgeous shades, but really what’s most exciting is the anticipation of how well Kylie can pull this off. Eyeshadows are a hard arena to delve into, it’s so easy to get a chalky formula or to not have enough pigmentation; so I think we were all eager to see how these would turn out.After the bronze palette was such a hit, Kylie came out with Burgundy. Now as I’ve said before, I held back with the Bronze because I figured it was almost identical to my Shaanxo palette and basically most of the palettes I own. Burgundy however, was much harder to resist. The shades were just so insanely gorgeous, there wasn’t a single color I wouldn’t get tons of use out of. From the gorgeous bright orange, to that absolutely beautiful center burgundy shade. The shimmers were almost tailor made for me, and the mattes were all my go to daily shades. So, I had to go for it.


The palette was barely out of it’s box before I was applying my eyelid primer and reaching for it. My first impressions were instantly that it was insanely pigmented. The second I dipped my brush in it, I watched it get entirely coated in powder. I tapped the excess off (which I rarely ever do) and with the first tap onto my lid, I was left with a circle of bold color. I’ve raved about this palette countless times on here. It was honestly all I would use for a couple of months. The shade range is just so me- it has everything I could need. I knew this would be an easy week for me, so I thought I’d just give you a review of the palette 🙂

I don’t want to start with a negative, but considering this is the only one I might as well. My only only problem with this palette is that it might just be too pigmented. The insane pigmentation is gorgeous, and especially perfect for the shimmers, but with some of the darker colors it can get a bit OTT and hard to tone down. The bad news ends there.


I really hate to be so in love with a Kylie Jenner creation, but I honestly think this is one of the best eyeshadow formulas I’ve ever used. Aside from being insanely pigmented, these shadows are so buttery they’re almost creamy. They blend out beautifully and just make my lids look so smooth and buttery (if that even makes sense). The shimmers is where the formula really shines through. These four shadows apply so beautifully, they’re almost foiled or metallic. They apply so smoothly onto the lid like a cream shadow would, and the pigmentation is just so gorgeous for a bold glittery lid or a quick brush of glitter. Very versatile. This formula is just so gorgeous, as long as you’re prepared and work with the pigmentation; it is possibly the best formulation out there.


There are a couple of shades in here that aren’t only gorgeous, but I definitely can’t find in any of my other palettes. The shimmers are definitely one of a kind, honestly I’m obsessed with the gold in here and that gorgeous burgundy shimmer- both swatched above. Aside from them, the mattes are the perfect colours to work with- especially that orange and deep burgundy colour. I can’t even begin to explain to you all how gorgeous every look would turn out when using this palette. Obviously all warm neutral looks, but that is my everyday go-to!

Kylie really did amazingly with this one. The formula is just so luxurious, and the shades are so gorgeous and on trend now. I just cannot sing its praises enough! I’m definitely super sad to set this aside for next week’s palette..

P.s. I feel like whenever I’m trying to plan a purchase, every photo of the palette I search looks different. So Im here to tell you that these photos are 100% accurate to how the palette looks in real life- in case you were thinking it looks different to ones you’ve seen before. Let this be your guiding light haha.

  1. I’m surprised because the shimmers on my palette aren’t that pigmented, like I have to drown my brush with setting spray before I use the shimmer. I agree that the matte ones are a bit too pigmented. Lovely post! x

      Oh wow no way! That is so strange. I hear the bronze palette was the same, but I always thought the burgundy fixed all those problems but maybe it’s just that there are some bad batches of both. That sucks :/ Thank you for reading xxx

  8. Aahhh I love this palette as well! The colours are everything! Totally get what you mean about the super pigmentation being a negative – that’s what I think with my Androgyny palette – some of those dark shades are actually hard to work with because they are so super pigmented even if you go in lightly. It freaks me out every time I try and use it hahaha xxx

      Aaaah I always wanted to try out the androgyny palette, I just don’t know. Some of the colours put me off. Yes super pigmentation can be so messy, there’s no going back once you have a patch on your eye haha. Thank you for reading love x

    I’d say they’re pretty different honestly. The Kylie ones are very very pigmented, and I feel like they’re a bit creamy almost- because of how buttery they are. Yes, the burgundy is hard to use, for me I just lightly get a bit of color on my brush and then blend it in the outer corner to give my eyes some depth xx
