Kylie Burgundy Palette Review and Giveaway

Kylie Burgundy Palette Review and Giveaway

Good day lovelies, I picked up the Kylie Burgundy Palette three month ago. However I could not get myself to use it. I know hey it’s crazy, the suspense was killing me. I could not wait to start using this palette and then it was like whoa…. buckle up buttercup it’s amazing and I now reach for this palette very often.


The Kylie Burgundy Palette packaging is very chic and timeless and one thing is for sure it is very recognizable with the eyes and tear drops that represent some of colours in the palette.  Outer packaging is white glossy hard cardboard with a magnetic closure. The cardboard feels very sturdy and luxurious.



The pigmentation is beautiful. The formula is firm to the touch but yet soft and buttery.  The formula has a medium build-able coverage which blends easily. Creating an eye look is effortless and easily. My favourite matte shade is “Beach” which is the perfect transition shade.


  • 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
  • New York “metallic finish warm bronze
  • Almond matte finish deep red brown



The Kylie Burgundy Palette sells for $42USD on the Kylie Cosmetic Website.  There is no international shipping to South Africa.  If you order from the Kylie Cosmetic Website you will have to use forwarding company and could liable for customs charges.  If you do not want to import you can purchase locally from MuseBeauty  for R950 or Samika for R1 080.


I love this palette the packaging is beautiful.  The shade selection is very complementing for my green eyes.



Now for the fun part,  1 lucky reader will win this palette

    I absolutely loved this post. I love Kylie so much!!!!! Just like you said, I am amazed by what she has done in so little time, esp being so young!!!

    I haven’t gotten my hands on one of these yet, international shipping makes it too expensive for it to be worth it for me right now.

    It is such a GORGEOUS palette ? I have been totally fan girling over this palette for a while now ever since it was launched on trend mood and I cannot shake the urge to get my hands on it???After seeing the reviews on the buttery and highly pigmented shades I knew I had to have it! I was completely hooked and couldn’t get over the STUNNING warm and wine shades in the collection. ???? The fact that this palette is so perfectly balanced between matte and metallic has me SWOONING ❤️? it looks so creamy and blendable which makes it a definite must-have palette. The warm tones are exactly what I need this summer ???? I have recently been experimenting with eyeshadow colours and this will be the perfect addition to my kit!! There are SO many beautiful looks that have been created and so many that I have in mind for this palette?
