Kylie Cosmetics The Burgundy Palette Kyshadow Review & Swatches


I picked up the Kylie The Burgundy Palette Kyshadow Palette late last month and I’m every so happy I did. As you know from my review of the Kylie Cosmetics KYShadow The Bronze Palette I was quite pleased with the formula and consistency of Kylie’s eyeshadows!

Kylie’s second palette, the Burgundy Palette, is just as wonderful as her first.


If you’re lover of shades that were included in both the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette and Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario you’re bound to love this palette as it includes many of the bright berries and warm nudes that were included in those palettes. On some levels I was a bit confused to have bright cranberry shades and warm nude shades all in one palette but I quickly got over that as many of these shades jive well together.


Shades include:
Naked (satin finish golden sand)
Beach (matte finish light warm brown)
Penny (matte finish red orange)
LA (metallic finish true copper)
Burgundy (matte finish bright red burgundy)
Dubai (metallic finish burgundy)
Brick (matte finish dirty brick)
NY (metallic finish warm bronze)
Almond (matte finish deep red brown)

One thing that surprised me about this new palette is how readily available it was. Unlike the Bronze Palette it didn’t sell out in a flash and it still remains in stock right now. I struggled through a variety of flash sales with the Bronze Palette and was angered each time I was unable to get it. This time around, the Burgundy Palette was easy to get my hands.

If I had to change anything about Kylie’s releases it would be the lack of Free Shipping. She has Free Shipping from time to time but most of her first time launches you’ll have to pay shipping. This palette is $42 plus tax and shipping and it’ll set you back well over $50 bucks. I’m completely cheap and snarky when I have to pay shipping for anything! I wish she’d have free shipping all the time. On that note, I will say she has free shipping now available with $40 orders which hopefully will stick around when she launches new products.

This palette is made in the US and holds nine shades which are 0.05 oz each. The palette is a bit smaller than the size of a CD and made from sturdy cardboard but does not have a mirror inside. I love artwork which has Kyle’s eyes bleeding sades of bronze and berry! The palette came with a hand signed note thanking you for your purchase that has Kylie’s eyes on it and when held in a certain way the appear to blink at you!

At first I was a little confused by the shade layout. It’s not really a “burgundy” palette because technically there are only three shades that are berry in color here where as the rest are bronzes, browns, sands, and terracottas. Some reason though those three burgundy shades are what capture and almost seem to dominate the palette. They don’t particularly go with all the other warmer shades in this palette but I didn’t struggle to hard when creating my look that includes Burgundy, Dubai, and a dab of LA in the enter of my eye. If you look close enough the shades work together across as trios or even in some cases up and down. I will say this isn’t exactly as coordinated as the Bronze Palette which had a variety of shades that jived well together.



The formula of the eyehadows is very soft and powdery but incredibly buttery and never dry or chalky. I can’t complain about a single thing when it comes to these shades. They are all soft, velvety, easy to blend, and crazy pigmented. For a brand still very much in their infancy they are doing a great job creating some very nice eyeshadows!

All in all, Kyle’s second palette is a promising offering with an excellent selection of shades and a formula that’s a joy to apply!

        Hi. Just received the burgundy palate for my daughter who has used it and now her eyes are red, swollen and puffy – do you have any other feedback of this type?

        • Isabella Muse

          no Katherina, none at all, stop using it immediately, it could be an allergic reaction! See a family doctor or even an eye doctor just to be safe and contact the company explaining what happened.

  • Pam

    You look like a million bucks with your beautifully coordinated makeup & clothes!

    I’ve heard good things about this palette, and I love the colors (and Made in the USA), but I cannot — will not — give my business to “those people.” I would feel like I was condoning who/what they are, and that ain’t happening here. But the shades look great on you!

  • Lola

    I like what you did under the eye with the shadow v cool I just bought it can’t wait

  • Maria

    Hi Muse. How do these shades compare to the ABH modern renaissance palette? Are they similar? I was interested in the Kylie one but I have the ABH one. Thanks.

    • Isabella Muse

      I don’t really have a complete comparison of the shades in both palettes Maria sorry! There are similiar shades but not exact dupes!

  • Vee Q

    Hey Isabella,

    Thanks for the review. If you had to pick one palette, which would you pick between ABH Renaissance and Kyle’s Burgundy?

    • Isabella Muse

      You might want to go with ABH, just because it has more of a selection of shades!

  • Mary Nefasta

    Your makeup is very beautifull, i love red eyeshadows. I want give a council (sorry my english, I am Italian). You should free your hair. You well be very nice and the make up is most enhanced!

    • Isabella Muse

      Thanks so much Mary! Typically I do my makeup in the AM before I head to work so I tend to like to pull my hair back and away from my face to face the work day 🙂 thanks!
