Okay, so I know I’m a bit late to the party, but it’s better late than never right? I wanted to give a true review of my thought of the Kyshadow Holiday Palette after using it for a while. However, some of my thoughts on this particular palette hasn’t change since first trying it. I’ve been using it quite frequently since Christmas so I think it’s time I let you all know my thoughts. There will also be a look further along which is perfect for this time of year, but also looks amazing on brown/green eyes!
With every Kylie product that gets released there is always some speculation of whether it’s going to be quality or if it’ll be a flop. So when she released her Holiday Collection I was skeptical, but after seeing the collection I fell in love with the Kyshadow Palette. I used it straight away as I wanted to see what it was like, and I was quite impressed by it! The shade ‘Evergreen’ caught my eye straight away, as did the shade ‘Frosty’. The pigmentation of these shades are absolutely amazing! Less is definitely more with this palette because it’s so good.
The only downsides I could really name and mention is the fallout of the matte shades. Luckily, I have started to do my eyes before my face makeup so the fallout didn’t effect the rest of my makeup, but if you do your face first I can imagine that would be quite annoying. I’d definitely recommend doing your eyes first when using the mattes, especially ‘Evergreen’. Other than that I couldn’t really fault it so the good bits definitely do outweigh the bad!
The range of shades in the palette is so versatile. It’s great if you’re wanting to start using more colour in your makeup. I am able to create so many amazing looks with them, especially in Winter as they’re perfect for this time of year. It’s great for creating bold, going out looks, but also quite simplistic looks if that’s what you wanted to do.
The Look + Final Thoughts
This look is perfect for any occasion. I would wear this to work, on a night out, or a day out too. I think it’s so nice, and the fact its so quick and easy to do too is a bonus! To get my lid prepped, I applied concealer up to my brow and set that with translucent powder to prevent creasing. For my transition shade I took Sugar Cookie through my crease, then deepened that with a light amount of Chestnut. I wanted to try Evergreen so much, so I packed that onto my lid. I then went in with Chestnut again to define my crease a bit more. To define my outer V a bit more I applied a small amount of Silent Night. Then finishing off the shadows by highlighting my inner corner with some Frosty. To complete the look I went for a winged liner with my usual Bourgois liner, and coat my lashes in some Elizabeth Arden mascara. You can see the finished look below.
Overall, I love the shades in this palette, however it is definitely a Winter only palette. The pigmentation can’t be faulted, but the fallout of the matte shades needs to be worked on. Fallout is normal, but I don’t want to feel like I’m losing half of the pigment down my face, y’know… Have you tried this Kyshadow palette? What were your thoughts when you tried it?
