Hi lovelies! Today I’m reviewing the KKW Beauty x Mario Eyeshadow palette. This is a very much anticipated collab between Kim Kardashian and her most famous makeup artist of 10 years Mario Dedivanovic.
The packaging is sleek and has a soft texture in a light dove grey hue which I find very appealing (It goes well with the KKW signature nude packaging). The palette is the same colour as the box and both embossed with a shiny KKW X MARIO logo on top.
The palette consists of 10 eyeshadows: 4 mattes and 6 shimmers & satins. The colours are very basic, practical colours to create both everyday & night looks. The one that stands out the most is the blue (obviously) and without it, it would be just another ‘standard’ (and boring) palette. The pan sizes are a nice size, not too big or too small, and the shadows are pigmented and easily blended. The palette comes with a mirror which is convenient for on the go.
The eyeshadows are pigmented and swatch nicely (as you can see in my video down below). I experienced a lot of fallout with the mattes, especially the dark brown shade which you can see for yourself during my swatching video. The mattes seem a bit more ‘powdery’ compared to the shimmers which are more smooth. Some shimmers are more intense while others have more of a satin finish (like the blue for example). The shimmers seem a bit ‘stiff’, not so buttery smooth, but perform nicely and deliver nice results. The shimmers can be used dry or wet for a more intense look.

This palette is nice and appealing to the eye however it is not the greatest I ever owned. The colours do perform and blend nicely but there is a lot of fallout with the mattes. The colour scheme is very basic, nothing special here other than the blue shade. Is this palette a must have? Probably not. Especially if you have similar eyeshadow colours in your collection.
That’s it lovelies! Hope you enjoyed my review and found it useful.
Until next time!
