Hi everyone! As Kylie has been releasing tons of new products this time of year, I thought I’d share with you guys my thoughts on her new Burgundy palette, and compare it to her Bronze one.
Firstly, the packaging. From my last post on the Bronze palette, you guys know I love how stylish and simple her design is. The drips on the front correspond to the shades inside. I still wish that there was a mirror but for cardboard packaging, mirrors are easy to break so I’ll let it slide.
Like her previous palette, the Burgundy palette has 9 shades ranging from light, medium to darker tones. Unlike her Bronze palette (see my full review on it here: Kyshadow Palette: Review, Swatches and Possible Dupes!) which had neutral browns and basic shades, the Burgundy palette harbours reddish hues and burgundy tones that are much in line with the trend and fall season in the US/UK right now.
The shades are beautiful and pigmented (this was with one swipe!) and they are buildable as well. Typical me, I would have loved a matte white highlight shade and a black but she did have those in her Bronze palette (see pics below) and the highlight shade is not overly shimmery and can be used as a brow bone shade if need be. The only shade I was slightly disappointed with was Dubai, which was the burgundy shimmer shade that wasn’t as pigmented as I’d like it to be upon first swatch. However, I find that using your fingers and layering it twice does the trick. Otherwise, the other shades are beautiful and they look absolutely stunning on the eyes 🙂
Comparison of quality and shades between the Bronze and Burgundy palette:
Looking at the palettes side-by-side, you can see that the palettes are not similar at all. The colours are different enough to justify owning both, but it all depends on preference and what colours you gravitate towards. The only major difference I can tell is the quality in the shimmer shades. The Bronze palette has 2 shimmers, whereas the Burgundy palette has 3. And while the shimmers in the Bronze palette were more of a satin finish and were more natural-looking on the eyes, the shimmers in the Burgundy palette pack more of a punch. The mattes were always good from the beginning and there was no compromise on the quality of it in the second palette either.
I think this palette is perfect for fall and for anyone who wants a burgundy palette. The quality is incredible and much like the first palette, these eyeshadows last a good eight hours on me before creasing (bearing in mind that I do have oily eyelids). Definitely a must-have in your collection, but hey, that’s just what I think 🙂
If you have the palette, leave your thoughts on it in the comment below! Thanks for reading! 🙂
