If you know me, you'll be very much aware I am a true Kardashian fan. I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode of every series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and I absolutely love it. There's something relaxing about watching their lives and forgetting about your own for half an hour/an hour! If you've ever wondered 'what is their talent...?', then I am here to argue it is makeup, with the Kim Kardazzle Palette to prove it.
I won't lie, the name is very cheesy, and gives the palette a cheap impression in my eyes. However, as the saying goes, don't judge a book buy it's cover (or it's name...). Housed inside a sequin printed beige/pink compact (that I stupidly forgot to photograph) are eight eyeshadows (4 mattes and 4 shimmers) and two blushes, as well as a highlight for good measure. I do think there should have been a bronzer instead of another blush though, as it would have completed the trio nicely. Despite my moans, the three pans in the base of the palette are well pigmented and formulated shades. The highlight is especially beautiful, a golden hue that adds so much warmth to the face that a champagne just does not sometimes.
Something worth mentioning is the size. I expected it to be a lot larger than it is, as you can never tell with online stock photos. For comparison, it is about the size as a typical credit card. I read about the small size in another review, so I had anticipated the pans to be tiny, but they were actually very reasonable. Also whilst we're discussing packaging, the blushes are accessed through sliding out a lower compartment. A mirror is also featured in the upper lid, which is always handy.
The matte eyeshadows aren't UD Naked Basics standard, but they're not too far off. Each is well pigmented, and rather smooth. The two browns are lovely crease shades and blend very easily, as do the rest. For the shimmers, they are the stars of the palette. The lightest gold is not as perfect as it's sisters, being less pigmented and slightly more chunky in texture, but still workable and certainly not useless nonetheless. However, all is not lost, with the other three beautiful colours making up for it; a smokey brown, medium coppery gold and copper. I've not left these eyeshadows alone since I got them under the tree at Christmas.They do have quite bad fall out, but pressing them on or concealing under the eyes last are quick solutions.
This palette was ordered from Feelunique at £14.95, but I cannot find it again to link. CloudBeauty still has them though, for £1 more at £15.95. Hurry though, they're limited edition. I say 'they're' because all three sisters have one of their own. So, if Kim isn't your cup of tea, there's still the Kourtney or Khloe editions to try!
