Rated 3.86 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Skeptical, but GREAT!!!
First, I've been wanting a Kylie palette for EVER! When I saw that these were coming in stores, I went online to read the reviews. Normally I use the one star reviews to talk myself out of buying something. Well, with all the reviews being 5 stars, I went for it. I got home and I started playing with the shadows, and I immediately hated it. I was honestly going to return it, and i've never returned anything! The next morning, I primed my eyes with the Urban Decay shadow primer, and set it with some loose powder, and man, did THAT make the difference. I'm 100% in love with the shadows and I've even looked into buying other palettes from Kylie Cosmetics now! Application technique is everything! WORTH EVERY PENNY!
Most Helpful Critical Review Sorry to tell you this
I am so upset this wasn't a winner. After all the Kylie hype this one falls waaaay short. A subtle look is fine but it doesn't excuse a bad formula or color pay off. The pans are hard, the swatching and application is patchy and chalky. Applying it made by eyes look old because the texture it left was awful.
I'm telling you, I gave this the best shot I could... I tried with primer, without primer, with brushes and fingers and nothing! Reminded me of using Maybelline eyeshadow when I was a kid. my husband who never comments on my makeup asked me why my eyes looked so "old".
I tried heavy application I tried light application and nothing worked. forget trying to blend or soften the colors they just turn into mud and disappear.The shimmers they have no pigment backing them at all and they will just swipe away with one flick. You cannot work them in and you cannot build them up or pack them on to get a good shimmer. I put a ton of research into buying this palette because I wanted one of her palettes that wasn't so warm a pigmented. I really struggled to find a beauty review on this palette with a tutorial or swatching. Now I know why. I even had my husband test other pallets with me to give me an objective feeling on how he felt the color swatched what he noticed when he swatched them on my skin. I even did comparison looks on my eye. My morphe 9 pan pallets beat this formula 100% for a fraction of the price. The application and the color payoff of this Kylie palette pale in comparison to a $12 morphe palette and that shouldn't be the case for this price point...
I'm not a Kylie hater, and I definitely am going to give more of her cosmetics a try. I've tried her highlighters and lip kits before and I really like them. I actually enjoy that her highlighters are just a little bit more subtle than some of the blinding stuff out there and they build well.
I swatched this palette in the store before I bought it, and I thought maybe the sample they had I was just old, because the swatching was dusty and hardly pigmented. I shouldn't have got this palette. I can't wait to return it once the stores go back to accepting returns. Please don't waste your money. Going for a really subtle look is fine, but this is not going to give you any pigment subtle or not.

The colors on this look amazing and the pigment is pretty strong. Blends very well

Like all Kylie palettes the quality of the shadow is excellent. The mattes blend easily and are not patchy. And the shimmers are visible on the eye without much extra effort. Despite this, I was underwhelmed when I opened the palette. There are not really any unique colors. I would recommend one of her other palettes such as the blue honey palette (my personal favorite).
I love the quality of Kylie cosmetics

Absolutely love this product. I will definitely buy more Kylie cosmetics in the future
Favorite neutral palette

I am not ashamed to say I love Kylie's makeup and this is no exception. The mattes are all super easy to blend and I love the color scheme with my fair skin. The pans may look shallow, but they are actually good size and last forever! I only took off one star because Spice Plum is a bit hard to work with and the shimmer shades need to be applied with your finger, pressed in with a flat concealer brush, or applied on top of concealer to get more pigment out of them. All in all a great palette!
Cheap Patchy Muddy Mess

I really wanted to like this pallette. I tried and tried to work with it ... I ended up giving it to a friend. Every time I used it I looked like I had a pair of shiners. Between the patchiness and the fallout, i just couldn't get it to work for me. Oh and the eyeshadow pans swivel... Like they aren't hooked into the pan. I was afraid they'd fall out of I didn't keep it upright. Id only recommend this if you're a sucker for punishment.
Absolutely amazing colors

5 stars, if on sale; 3 stars if not

I bought this palette when it was on sale. I would compare this to ABH Soft Glam in color, but not quality. I get a very similar look with both, but while the quality is good, it just cannot surpass ABH quality and performance, so unless you get this on sale, I'd just get the Soft Glam, instead.
I love this palette
Catpeacebird from Vancouver,WA
I got to tell you ,that berry bite is a beautiful mauve color that looks fantastic with my skin tone.And the shimmers are bomb !Further,I do believe that these colors look best with darker skin and eye color .All in all,this is a great palette when you're in a rush and need a cute to go look!
MamaCece from Wisconsin
This palette was alright. Some colors definitely need to be built up, which makes me feel like I'm getting a morphe palette, but the color choices are nice and easy to work with, and I have gotten a lot of compliments after using these shadows.

Lexie from Orange County, Ca
I have the blue bee kyshadow and like the quality but for this sorta sweet pallet the formula is obviously different. Negatives are the color pay out is dull, the fall out is excessive, highly over priced for quality. Elf is a good reference point for this pallet.

I love the Light the colors are shown in the picture most the color berry bite. When it came it was so dark and the shade was not a nice pinky color that was shown.

Not a fan

Color pay off wasn't great. The formula wasn't easy to blend and easily got patchy.
Isabella from Phoenix
This is a really good eyeshadow if you are starting off or already good at makeup. Its pigmented and the colors are a good natural and sorta sweet.
Bri from Boston
I'm not big on doing makeup but this pallet is super natural and looks amazing on my skin tone (tan). I love it!
rocky from Salem Or
I bought this palette with high hopes. I like to go more for a natural look and I thought this would be perfect. The colors are a bit darker and there is A LOT of excess. Not even my Elf Palette does that. I will be returning
lids from California
This palette has great colors and definitely overpriced for the lack of quality... I had a hard time applying the colors and take sometime adding and adding the colors for them to finally show up... this formula is cheap definitely not good
never buying again
rosie from san diego
a lot of fall out cheaply made
K from MD
I'm not a makeup guru, but I like how this palette has shades that let you play with different natural looks. I can try different looks without going outside of my comfort zone. I don't like bold makeup on myself. I probably wouldn't buy again unless it's on sale. Lots of fallout from the eyeshadow under the eyes though.
Love this palette
AmyP from Florida
Love the colors, especially the lighter shades. The shimmers are pretty & you can go light or build up to a darker application.
