Kylie Jenner collaborated with bestie Jordyn Woods and the result? Kylie x Jordyn palette! But is it worth it?
I picked up this Kylie x Jordyn palette along with their gloss… why? At first I was like NO, not at all an eye catching palette. But after a closer look I noticed that it actually consists of the perfect combination of neutrals and bolds, especially for my hazel eyes. Purple shades are AMAZING for hazel eyes! I have the Purple Kyshadow but I don’t reach for it often because I find myself too lazy to put on eyeshadow with two different palettes. So I figured this one might be a good option for those in a hurry makeup looks. Was I right?
First thing when I opened the Kylie Cosmetics Jordyn palette was that ultra bright green shimmer shade. What a bomb! Truly unique in my collection, I love to use it for more dramatic look or everyday for the inner corner. Purple shade Wild love also became one of my favourites but I am not wearing it as much. It shifts colours and I am not fond of that.
Eyeshadows themselves are very pigmented, easy to work with, shimmers are creamy and smooth. A win! But talking about the purples… let me first say that purple eyeshadows are almost all a bit streaky. These two are in the same bunch, but with a bit of layering they work fine. This is not a thing that bothers me. The thing that I really find interesting is that they are almost the same as the ones in Purple Kyshadow! I was hoping for a bit of a different vibe but they are literally almost the exact same. Here we are talking about My Heart = Turning violet and Love you *itch = Wine’n’dine. Meanwhile second pair is basically the same, the first pair has some differences in brightness and intensity but in reallity you don’t notice these things when they are on the eyes, perfectly blended.
Now that I played with it for a while I have to say, I did not make the mistake when purchasing it. When I have a palette with combination of neutrals and bolds, it is definitely something that is encouraging me to use colour more, to get out of the comfort zone, to practice makeup even just for 5 minutes in the morning. Kylie x Jordyn palette is definitely a win for my hazel eyes!
