Today I’ll be reviewing the new Khroma Kardazzle Eyeshadow & Face, it’s actually Khloe’s Kardazzle Palette to be exact. I looked out the window, thankfully it’s not raining fire. Some of you will enjoy this review, some not so much…but facts is facts love ’em or hate ’em the Kardashian’s makeup always looks flawless.
Khroma Beauty & Makeup is the new line that the K’s introduced recently to mainstream drugstores. I located the collection at Harmons but since that time it has popped up in a variety of places including Ulta.
The Kardazzle Complete Face Palettes are a tiny credit card size palette that features eyeshadow, highlighter, bronzer, and blush for $12.99.
Take a look!
Khroma Beauty is already running into some lawsuits due to the name. I don’t have exact details but read an article or too regarding this issue. Thankfully it wasn’t due to packaging as this tiny palette is very similiar in design to the Too Faced Glamour to Go Palette.
Each palette is about the size of a credit card and makes for a very portable, easy to travel with size. There’s a mirror inside the first tier with the nine shadows and a slide out draw features the blush, highlighter, and bronzer. If you have an overnight or weekend trip it’s the perfect size to take with you to create a variety of looks. If I’m honest, I can get a week’s worth of looks out of this tiny thing without an issue! Just need to supply my own lip color and I’m ready to go.
There are four matte shades here and four metallic. I thought perhaps the metallic would be along the lines of the Cargo Metallico Palette formula but I actually prefer the Cargo ones over this. That isn’t to say they aren’t good, because actually, they are nice. The metallics have a creamy texture with excellent color pay off, an easy to blend formula, and look quite popping on eyes. I saw minor frostiness from them but nothing that turned me off completely. They are most comparable in texture to Stila Eyeshadow or the shadows in the Too Faced Bon Bon Palette released for Holiday 2012. The matte shades are also fairly nice with a silky formula that blends easily. There’s a tiny bit of chalkiness but if you use a sponge applicator you can get a very smooth, soft focus from the mattes.
Both the bronzer and the blush also have equally nice formulas, at this price, I’d say they fair quite well. The formula has some chalkiness to it but it blends out to a smooth, flawless finish with a satiny feel. They have excellent color pay off as well.
I didn’t love the highlighter in all honesty. It’s a gold luminous shade that’s very pretty but produces a little too much sparkle on my face.
The palette is very much Khloe’s look. They are all shades that you might have seen her wearing or would be flattering on her skin type, hair shade, eye color, etc….
Overall, by budget makeup standards, the Kardazzle Palette is actually quite an ok purchase. This price is fair, the formulation on the products excellent, and they avoided one major negative aspect with palettes like this, including cream products. The lack of gloss or lipstick in the palette is a positive point as it avoids a mess and would likely be a hard, dense lipstick product which would bring down the value of the palette. The contents as is, is perfect. If you’re not interested in these warmer shades you can go with Kim’s Kardazzle Palette which features smoky shades.
Below I’m using three of the metallic shades on my eyes and the blush on my cheeks from this palette.
If you’re on a budget and can get past any issues you might have with the Kardashian’s this might be worth a look at and haul!
I liked it.
