KKW Beauty X Mario Collection


My first purchase from KKW Beauty......

I have always adored how Kim's Kardashian West's (Instagram  HERE ) makeup looks on her, she always looks so beautiful with very little products used. I have followed Kim for many years and have watched Keeping Up With The Kardashians since the day it started! With me having a "little" obsession with eyeshadow palette's I knew I wanted to pick this up. Of course Makeup By Mario (Instagram HERE ) is of course Kim's makeup artist and to celebrate them working together for 10 years they created this collaboration. Of course I am a beauty blogger and knew I had to have this in my collection. Plus I wanted to show you guys all the products they released so I ended up purchasing the bundle...

Inside the Kim X Mario collaboration you get an eyeshadow palette, 2 lip glosses and a creme lipstick for $85 dollars, thats $101 dollars worth of products at a cheaper option. You can also pick up the eyeshadow palette individually for $45. The eyeshadow palette comes with ten shades and are 0.06oz each thats 1.70g all together.  Kim and Mario named the shades together, shade names that relate to to their working relationship and things about them...


This row of shades is the top row in the palette.  From T-B the shades are 2008, Glam, Miami, Armenian and Loyalty



This is the second row in the palette. From T-B the shades are Decade, Albanian, Vegas, Libra and Bronzy

Now I have millions of shades like this in other palettes but theres something about this colour scheme that makes me think WOW. I am in love with both rows but in different ways. I was never a huge fan of matte shadows years ago but now I use them more and understand how you need a blended base before you apply a lid topper or metallic shade.  I mean we all bought this palette for those bronze, rustic red and blue shades right! :) I mean that blue shadow is insane, I can't wait to apply that on the lid or under my waterline smoked out. I love how makeup has no rules and I have been enjoying colours more....

Of course by know you all know when I talk about an eyeshadow palette I always have swatches of them in my posts. I know that swatches are not really a true representation of the colour especially when they apply to the eyes I just like to style my posts this way, personal choice really. I also like to have the product I'm talking about in the background too...

Kim and Mario also created 2 glosses and a lipstick. I was impressed by the swatches with these as I didn't know what to expect with the glosses. I have always adored pairing a gloss with a lipstick. These have a really great quality too especially the lipstick, how lovely does that shade look? Im a sucker for nudes....


These are the gloss and lipstick swatches. From T-B the shades are Super nude, Juice, and Classic K

From what I can remember the launch of this collection went live on KKWBEAUTY.COM on the 5th of April I think. I literally was so excited to get this collection and knew I wouldn't get it until so many weeks later to it being an international purchase. From adding it to my basket, waiting in a queue for like a split second, to purchasing and dispatch I was happy with my purchase. I also got the email confirmation very quickly too. I was also chatting to the lovely Kasie at KASIEBEAUTY.COM and we both chatted about the collection and what our thoughts were towards it. Were literally sat in different parts of the country and managed to bag the collection at the same time....

However the parcel was sent out and I received a tracking code with USPS. I was happy thinking yes my parcel is on it's way. From the day of ordering until yesterday my status on USPS stayed the same. I was beginning to think what "package acceptance pending" meant for like 13 days or more but luckily I received a customs card from royal mail and I was so happy it was the Kim X Mario collection.  The lovely team over at USPS on twitter responded to my tweet the day I received the parcel so my little "issue" was resolved. I actually thought my parcel was lost or had made its way back to LA or something (LA is somewhere I really want to visit too, just a little fyi lol).  After all that was resolved I was happy to take some photos of this collection and can't wait to try it out for you guys...

I've also included the video from Kim's youtube channel showing you a look Mario created on Kim. Mario also spoke about how the shades were named too... video credit goes to KIM KARDASHIAN WEST :)
