KKWBeauty x MakeupByMario Eyeshadow Palette Swatches and Comparison to Kylie Cosmetics Royal Peach Palette. Photo by @amrezy
Everyone and their mother has shared their thoughts on the new KKW Beauty x Mario palette ($45), despite it not being released yet. If you haven't heard the good news this highly circulated palette is launching today, April 5th, also the tenth anniversary of Kim and Mario's first meeting. I love that the launch date holds a special meaning and I have spent the past few day dedicated to watching review videos, and dear lord there are many. Not going to go too in depth today because there are so many reviews already out there by people who have used the palette firsthand. This post is just to share swatches and my thoughts, I have been asked about how the palette compares to Kylie's eyeshadow palettes, specifically the Royal Peach Palette. I want to reiterate that I haven't bought or even tried Kylie's or Kim's makeup, mostly because of the custom fees and my current ridiculous amount of makeup that I hardly ever touch. Seriously, it's a real problem. My sister had her bridal trial the other day and I was devastated to realise I own almost everything she used on her and yet I hardly use them, but hey props to me for buying good shit

KKWBeautyxMario Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review First Impressions
Onto the palette, there are ten eyeshadows and all the names have a special meaning to Kim and Mario, her makeup artist. For me, the packaging, the shades, and the shade names were quite predictable. I think Mario is extremely talented and I do love the colours and would most likely use them all but it is nothing I have seen before. I should point out that I feel this way about every eyeshadow palette. If you are in the UK and are unsure I would recommend the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette, which you can get from Beauty Bay. Free delivery. Plenty more colours. You could definitely create very similar, if not identical looks. That is just my opinion

Surprisingly, people have drawn comparisons to Kylie Cosmetics Royal Peach Palette and I think this is due to the vivid blues in both palettes, aside from that they couldn't be more different. It is clear, even to me, a non-professional, that the quality of the KKW Beauty x Mario palette is higher. This is evident not only in how they swatch but how they perform on the lids and how they feel to the touch. There is a makeup artist behind this release so I assume more attention was paid and the price would be higher if this failed, for instance, it could actually damage Mario's career. I have seen some great looks with this palette but a lot of them are the same. I will be doing a post with some of my favourite looks from the palette and I am going to try my hardest to dupe the shades for you in case one specific shade is calling out to you. Thank you so much for reading, please leave your comments below I am very interested in your opinion on KKW Beauty in general as well as this palette specifically. I have the Master Palette by Mario done in collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills and I would choose that palette over this. The only drawbacks of this palette are the slight kickbac, highlighted in NikkieTutorials video and the general high price, but that is not an issue for me. A personal drawback for me is that I own very similar shades already. Take care. 

What are your thoughts on KKW Beauty and this new palette?

  6. The swatches look decent but I wouldn't know what to do with the palette haha, all the shades are very out there, and I would have preferred a matte for the crease. Although, it isn't something I would buy myself as I'm also trying to stop buying so many palettes I never use x
