Kylie Jenner. I don’t think I need to make any introduction here. I am not a huge fan of the whole Jenner clan and I tried to resist purchasing any makeup from the Kylie Cosmetics brand for as long as I could. However, when the Valentine’s Collection was released, I saw Kylie’s Diary palette and I knew any resistance was futile and I just had to buy it.
In today’s post I am going to share my initial thoughts on the palette with a full review coming soon after I get a chance to test it thoroughly.
I will start by saying that it took about 10 days for me to receive the palette, which is quite a while. I guess I am spoiled by my Ulta orders arriving in 2-3 days. Kylie’s Diary palette retails for $54.00 and I think it’s a reasonable price for what you get.
Kylie’s Diary palette consists of 9 eyeshadows- 5 of which are shimmers and 4 are mattes. It also comes with 2 blushes with the cutest heart design.
The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, it looks like a diary book with Kylie’s Diary writing in red glitter on the front. Inside there is a big mirror. The eyeshadows pans are pretty big and you also get a generous amount of each blush. Inside the box that the palette was shipped in there was a cute personalized postcard from Kylie with a 3D eyes that wink at you, which is really cool!
From just swatching the palette, the eyeshadows are fairly well pigmented. The matte shades are a bit powdery though. I absolutely love the selection of shades, I think they all scream romance and Valentine’s Day and they will create a beautiful girly look.
The blushes on the other hand seem to lack pigmentation (which you can tell from the swatches), they seem very dry and it looks like it will take a bit of work to build the color up to even show up on the cheeks.
All in all, I love the packaging of the palette and attention to detail. I think the shade selection is perfect and I am happy with the pigmentation of the eyeshadows. From just swatching the blushes, they left me unimpressed. I am looking forward to putting the palette to test and I will definitely get back to you with more details.
In the meantime, I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Even if you think it’s a cheesy Hallmark holiday, don’t forget to show love to the people you care about! Happy Valentine’s Day!
