This is my first eyeshadow palette from Kylie cosmetics, I wasn't too fazed by the other palettes she brought out as the reviews were really mixed and the colours weren't anything I didn't already own.
When she launched the royal peach palette I was so drawn to it and told myself I needed it like no other...forgetting about the other 129832385234623 palettes I own!?
I have recently been a bit addicted to the peachy shadows from the too faced sweet peach palette that its made me want to try others! I really thought that this palette had some unique shades in it that I wouldn't normally use or don't own like the Royal Blue, lilac and green golden shade....Great convincing there Fiona.
My first impressions were that the packaging seems sturdy and is a nice clean design with Kylie in bold rose gold letters on the front.
Housing 12 shades inside, She finally listened to peoples comments that her previous palettes didn't have a mirror and this one has a really decent sized mirror inside.
I love that it comes with a pretty decent brush too! Ive been using it and its not bad, A little scratchy in comparison to zoeva or mac 217 but none the less it does the trick and a huge improvement from most brushes you get inside a palette!
OK my thoughts when I put all the shades on my eye balls! First off the matte shades seriously impress me, the colours are exactly what you see, is what you get!
Super pigmented and extremely easy to blend.
Not too much kick back or fall out just a little bit on some of the darker/brighter shades.
However the shimmer shades I feel were a little underwhelming, They still perform quite well but just took a little work to get the metallic effect, I had to use my brush wet and really pack on the colour, which I feel the result of having to really pack on the colour made the shadow look at little choppy up close and hard to apply liquid liner over top evenly.
They aren't terrible by any means and looked great in the photos but just not as buttery as I would have liked them to be for how expensive the palette is.
The colours still made for a beautiful look which turned out to be something a little different for me with the pop of blue on the lower lash line.
(I used Stila magnificent metal liquid glitter shadow in gold goddess on the inner corner for the sparkle)
For the shipping and palette it cost me $85.67 which is pretty pricey! For that reason I don't recommend this is worth the splurge unless your an absolute junkie like me *gotta catch em all* haha!
I would suggest the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette as an alternative if you are wanting to experiment with peachy shades I have been loving that one and its got a lot more wearable everyday shades inside it :) $78 from meccabeauty.co.nz a lot more shades inside and the packaging is super cute!
I hope you found this interesting and helpful if you were looking to purchase this palette
