I have no problems admitting that I am a big Khardashians fan. Not only do I think the three sisters, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are absolutely hilarious (I seriously wish my sisters and I were that amusing), they always look stunning, and I love checking out their latest beauty and fashion picks. So, when I found out that they were releasing a their own line of cosmetics, called Khroma Beauty, I was more than a little excited.
Originally, I planned on purchasing a number of items from the new line, however, after reading a number of 'not so great' reviews, I decided to only get one item, the 'Kourtney Kardazzle' complete face palette.
There are four matte shadows featured in the 'Kourtney's Kardazzle' palette. While all are incredibly soft and smooth, they aren't as pigmented as one would hope, and therefore take some extra effort to apply. The matte shadows comes in the following four shades (top row, left to right):
1) A light, matte beige with pink undertones.
2) A light peach with orange undertones (this makes an awesome crease colour).
3) A light brown with yellow undertones.
4) A deep rose with subtle brown undertones.
There are also four shimmering shadows in this palette. Although each of the shadows have a lot of fallout, and can make for a messy application, all are extremely well pigmented, very smooth, last nicely throughout the day, and give the lids a gorgeous glow. The shimmer shadows come in the following four shades (bottom row, left to right):
1) A gorgeous, light, yellow-gold with iridescent gold shimmer.
2) A beautiful light taupe with rose gold undertones and iridescent silver shimmer.
3) A deep burgundy with both copper and plum undertones.
4) A dark chocolate brown with finely milled iridescent green and silver glitter.
Also included in the 'Kourtney's Kardazzle' palette are two blushes and a highlighter. All three are incredibly smooth, nicely pigmented, and very easy to apply, and blend. While I am extremely happy with the quality of all three, it makes me wonder why Khroma Beauty didn't take more time to ensure that their eyeshadows were of the same quality as the blushes and highlighter. The three face powders come in the following shades (left to right):
1) A light, rosy pink with slight peach undertones and very finely milled silver shimmer (which disappears once applied).
2) A yellow-toned golden highlighter with iridescent green and gold shimmer, and a high sheen finish.
2) A brown-toned pink with slight orange undertones and very finely milled silver shimmer (which disappears once applied).
Overall, I though the palette was just 'okay'. While I was really impressed by the blushes and highlighter, I definitely think they could have made their matte shadows a lot more pigmented, and their shimmer shadows a little less messy. For $15.99 USD (I got mine on sale for $10 USD), I would have expected better quality packaging. While I do like the snake-skin print case, I thought fashion power houses, the Khardasian sisters, might have come out with something a little more fashionable (something 'blingy'!). Unfortunately, what they did produce is, in my opinion, somewhat cheap.
If you are a huge Khardashian fan, and really want to try something from the Khroma Beauty line, this palette is supposed to be one of their best products, and does have a few nice quality items (the blushes and highlighter). If, however, you are looking for a low priced palette with good quality eyeshadows and blushes, you may want to look elsewhere.
