The Royal Peach eyeshadow palette contains 12 pressed powder shades; Sorbet (matte finish light tangerine), Seashell (metallic finish pink champagne), Peachy (matte finish bright peach), Royal (satin finish bright royal blue), Queen Bee (metallic finish shimmering caramel), Duke (metallic finish red copper), Duchess (metallic finish bright cinnamon), Sandy (matte finish medium tan), Mojito (metallic finish golden green), North Star (metallic finish soft lilac), Crush (satin finish peachy pink) and Cinnamon (matte finish burnt orange).The shades in Royal Peach are very wearable, can be worn on all skin tones and they actually compliment each other - I really enjoy this palette and will use it regularly as the powders are quite easy to work with [the blue and burnt orange mattes are a bit dry], can be worn all year round and either dressed up or toned down to fit any occasion. The pigmentation of the products in this palette is good, and everything wears well on my drier skin - there is some kick-up when I dip my brushes into the pans, but that is something that never really bothers me as long as the powders apply and performs well, which these do. My palette doesn't smell bad [it was a big complaint when the palette was first released] - it doesn't have any fragrance at all. I believe that it was said somewhere that the problem with the 'smelly' palettes in older batches was caused by the glue used to hold the shadow pans in place. Unlike the brush in the Take Me On Vacation eyeshadow palette, this one does work well; it's a great brush for diffusing my crease colours. I use it for softening the brighter mattes when I want a softer look. I now keep the brush in the cosmetic bag that my most-used brushes live in and use it quite a bit on my more toned down days.My only issue is the same that it's been for every other Kylie Cosmetics palette I've tried; the shimmers won't build up to the intensity that they have in their pans - apply them dry or wet, with stiff bristled brushes or fingers, it makes no difference. Personally, I actually prefer the softer look they have, but if you love the shades you see in the pans, you're in for a disappointment. The quality of the shadows in the Royal Peach palette is much better in comparison to the shadows in the brand's fancy limited edition stuff [although there still are issues with the metallics not reaching their full intensity] and the colour story is nice. If you want to treat yourself and have the spare money for customs & handling fees, then yes, this is a very nice eyeshadow palette to get - just be beware of the slow order and processing times [order processing took 6 days, and delivery took another 11 days], then adding in the $15 for international postage and the custom tax & handling charges to the cost too. If you just want any peach themed palette, you can pick up TooFaced's Sweet Peach palette much more easily, with no extra costs being tagged onto it.I wasn't sure how to rate this; If the palette's usual RRP was the same as it was for the flash sale price I paid, I'd be happily recommending this palette, but as it is I can't ignore the issue with the metallic shades since the brand have put themselves at such a big price level [after adding in international shipping and customs & handling charges, a big Huda Beauty palette is cheaper]. I do think that people may want to look out for another sale where they can pick Royal Peach. The Kylie Cosmetics site has been having loads of flash sales since Kim launched a makeup line, so I definitely recommend that you sign up for email alerts on the site as this particular palette has been in 40% off sales three times in the past few months.

The Eye of the Storm eyeshadow collection is part of the spring 2018 Weather collection. It contains ten powder eyeshadows in the following shades; Dream Catcher (matte light nude), Sweet Storm (satin light gold), Thunderstruck (matte cool grey), Celestial (metallic rosy champagne), Lightyear (matte neon yellow), Cyclone (metallic forest green with blue glitter), Moon & Back (satin midnight blue with pink glitter), Whirlwind (deepened plum) Electric (metallic multidimensional silver) and Stargaze (satin black with silver glitter).The shadows are okay in that they are pretty unique & complementary. This palette can be used for a variety of complete eye looks going from conservative office looks, all the way to night/party time, and I have liked the majority of looks I've done to date. There isn't too much fallout compared to the first few palettes from the brand, and the blendability is good compared to the earlier palettes from the brand. I rarely a primer, and whilst the colours do fade a bit over the day, there hasn't been much creasing with 9+ hours of wear.However I do have a issue with the pigmentation; the several deeper shades on the bottom row don't apply as dark and/or as vibrant as they appear in the pan - like with the other Kylie palettes I own, the shimmer shades are the worst for this. The yellow shade (Lightyear) is the only shadow in the palette that I outright dislike, as it is dry and crumbly - I've only used the shade once and there is a considerable dip in the pan, as it is so powdery that it just flakes into pieces. Annoying as that was the shade that particularly called to me and made me buy the palette.Considering the price of the palette, I do think a plastic casing, a mirror and a brush (I think the 5 piece brush set quality is poor, but I'd much rather have something than nothing) should have been used for the palette. Also; the shade names aren't printed on the palette [just on a sticker on the back of it]. This niggle doesn't effect the actual products in any way so I don't mean to make a big deal about it, but it's something that winds me up because I like to know exactly what I'm wearing - they cut costs by removing the mirror and not bothering with a brush, so surely they could afford to print the shade names underneath the pans?! I bought a couple of the brand's eyeshadow palettes in flash sales and found them pretty decent, so I felt confident enough to order this one full-priced as the colour story is quite unique for a spring palette, but I'm underwhelmed and wish that I hadn't bothered now. This is nowhere near as bad as the other palette in the Weather collection, but the price you see on screen is already too much for the product quality, and then there is shipping and tax, customs & handling fees to be added = we're going past the 'medium to low-high' palette price point, and are talking a "let's go to Selfridge's and hit the makeup counters" higher level price range (in the UK anyway), which is a level of quality that this palette just not does not have. All sales with the brand are final, so you can't cancel your order or return it later.

The Purple palette contains nine powder eyeshadows in a mix of matte, metallic and metallic-with-microglitter finishes. The palette also contains a mirror, which the earlier nine-pan palettes do not have [or at least the first couple of batch releases didn't]; Periwinkle (metallic/microglitter icy pink), Trophy (metallic/microglitter bronze), Stone (matte cool-tone taupe), Lilac (matte soft lilac), Wine 'N Dine (matte deepened plum), Turning Violet (matte deepened violet), Amethyst (metallic purple), Purple Smoke (metallic purple slate) and Blueberry (matte cool gray).The biggest plus for this palette is the rich pigmentation in the matte purple and lilac shades - fantastic for matte purple shades to be so what-you-see-is-what-you-get shade-wise, and have non-powdery formulas. The other two matte shades aren't as richly pigmented, but the pigmentation is still nice and I really appreciate that they put in cool tones for their practical neutrals, rather than the more common neutral or warm tones. Purple Smoke is another shade that I love, as it's totally unique to my eyeshadow collection - but I don't think that it's a straightforward metallic like the site says, I'd say that it is more like a pearl/duochrome, as it flashes purple. This is the first Kyshadow palette I've tried where every shade blends out well and there is nowhere near as fall out as much as the other Kylie Cosmetic shadows that I've tried - and I haven't noticed any creasing or colour fading with any of the shades over the day, which have been issues before.However, I've still found a few downsides; the shades Trophy and Amethyst don't apply as vivid on the lids, compared to how they look in their pans - I don't always mind shades that apply slightly different in comparison to their first appearance, but at the price-point that the brand has chosen to put themselves at I can't overlook the issue the way I can with cheaper palettes. My biggest hangup with The Purple Palette is that the microglitter that is in some of the metallic shades is loose in the base, so things get messy with it migrating over the day - the Kylie Cosmetic site doesn't mention any of the shades containing glitter [they go as far as to call Periwinkle a satin!], so I kinda feel cheated by the company, as I wouldn't have bought The Purple Palette and would have picked The Burgundy Palette instead, if I'd have known that this one contains glitter.I don't feel that this palette has been as overpriced like I think the other eyeshadow palettes I've tried from the brand have been, as the quality has much improved over the earlier eyeshadow releases and I'll continue to get use out of it, so if the flash-sale price I paid was the usual price I'd give this a higher rating and click 'yes' for re-buy. however; the regular RRP ultimately still is overpriced in my opinion, as I'm only totally happy with four shades & find another two 'nice' , so I find the price tag just too much, when I will barely touch a third of the palette going forward. I'll be a bit fair to KC and say that if you want to own a palette/buy a palette as a gift specifically from this brand, then The Purple Palette is nice enough quality-wise, the shades are very wearable and easy to work with. But if you just want some nice quality shades of purple to wear, then check out the Unicorn's Dream palette by indie brand Karity - great quality, more shades [15 pans], less money, cheaper & faster shipping and I didn't get any custom tax charges.

Calm Before The Storm is part of the spring 2018 Weather collection. It contains the following shades; True Love (matte peach rose), Sweet Sweet (metallic baby pink with multicolored pearl), Sunshine (satin warm yellow), Little Wonder (metallic light gold), Northern Light (matte pastel green), Rockabye (metallic muted sea foam green), Angel (matte baby blue), Starbaby (metallic icy gold), Aquarius (matte pastel lavender) and Heaven Sent (satin pastel lavender with blue flip).The pigmentation is so poor on everything here, other than the shade Angel, but that shows up because it has a ton of white in and is very powdery as a result.. Heaven Sent is not a duo-chrome as the site description leads you to believe - it is a matte with microglitter. Sweet Sweet is the worst as it is so crumbly; it won't become even or opaque either applied wet or dry, with a stiff brush or fingers,plus it has a ton of microglitter in, which goes everywhere. I can't think of anything else to add to the description as everything really is extremely poorly pigmented; there are only three looks in the palette; white & powdery [blue & green], pale blush [peach, yellow & lavender] and microglitter overload [the so called duo-chrome, pearl & metallics].Considering the price, I do think a plastic casing, a mirror and a brush (I think the 5 piece brush set quality is poor, but I'd much rather have something than nothing) should have been used for the palette. Also; the shade names aren't printed on the palette [just on a sticker on the back of it]. This niggle doesn't effect the actual products in any way so I don't mean to make a big deal about it, but it's something that winds me up because I like to know exactly what I'm wearing. I bought a couple of the brand's eyeshadow palettes in flash sales and found them pretty decent, so I felt confident enough to order this one full-priced as the pastel shades are just so pretty - big mistake. I don't like being so negative, but there are just no pluses to this palette - this is "how the heck did this ever pass a quality check?" bad. Save your money and pass on this. The price you see on screen is already too much for the product quality, and then there is shipping and tax, customs & handling fees to be added = we're going past the 'medium to low-high' palette price point, and are talking a "let's go to Selfridge's and hit the makeup counters" higher level price range (in the UK anyway), which is a level of quality that this palette just not does not have.

Kylie Jenner autunm lip kit review:Is a weird orange pink color. The box looks more burnt orange than swatches online, so I was worried. I mistakened the lipstick for a gloss at first.It is matte and verydrying. It has a weird artificial vanilla smell. The lipstick and lipliner do match.Don't know if it sharpens well yet.
