I am back again continuing on with my Valentine’s Day themed makeup posts. Today I’m here to swatch Kylie’s latest release, Kylie’s Diary. The makeup palette contains 9 eyeshadows and 2 blushes. I wanted the Head Over Heels lip kit but of course it was sold out. I really was debating on buying this, you don’t know how much. First of all, not a Kylie fan. Only because you famous for who? For what? It’s just not for me. Khloe was my favorite and I can’t even deal with her anymore. But she keeps trying to reel me in, especially with the holiday palette. And she finally caught me. This Valentine’s Day collection was so friggin cute. And I figured if I can divorce myself from Jeffree and love the makeup, then I could with Kylie too. Now that doesn’t mean I’ll be on her like that, I mean I have most of those lip colors. I know Colour Pop is a great dupe for them, they’re both under the same cooperation. But if something catches my fancy I’ll try and buy it. But even if I do want to buy something from her, it’s like the hunger games getting anything from her site. I was surprised the Diary was still in stock when I was able to get to it. I figured it was a sign I should get it. And at $54, it really didn’t help make it an easy decision. Thank god shipping is free over $40. I couldn’t have done it otherwise.
So I have some swatches for you and a makeup look. I figured I’d give it a full on go and see how the shadows really work. I wanted to be able to give my full opinion all around.
Now let’s see what’s Kylie keeping in her diary.
Bae is an icy periwinkle. This shade is very light. I figured this would make a good highlight.
Heart Breaker is a pearlized shimmering baby pink.
Make Me Blush:
Make Me Blush is a metallic sparkly lavender.
Sweet Like Candy:
Sweet Like Candy is a bright metallic rose gold. This color is absolutely gorgeous. That gold shift is so crazy. This is one of the prettiest rose golds I’ve ever seen.
Love Potion is a satin hot pink. I don’t like pink too much but I cannot wait to have this in my crease. I can’t wait to do a look with this.
Be Mine is a matte soft coral.
Heart Eyes is a matte deepened magenta.
Romance is a metallic golden burgundy.
Loves Me Not:
Loves Me Not is a matte plum grey. I love taupey colors, and this is her cool older cousin. You don’t know how much I love this color.
First Date is a subdued tangerine.
Virginity is a vibrant warm pink.
Overall, I really do like this palette. More than I thought I would. The packaging alone is what got me. It’s absolutely gorgeous, a diary with sparkly red trim. I had a million diaries so it spoke to my 8 year old self. It had a mirror, you know how I am with mirrors. But what also really got me were the shadows. The shades are pretty different and vary especially for Valentine’s Day looks. I also was intrigued by the blushes. I love blushes a lot, but I was probably most disappointed by. As you can see from the swatches, they aren’t very pigmented. I didn’t expect anything from First Date since it’s a light peachy shade. That doesn’t really show up on my yellow undertone. But Virginity I was expecting more from. Especially because of the name, I like anything named after my currant sexual status. Now I’ll show these babies in action.
I am so in love with this look. My non existent boyfriend is missing out. Too bad for you boys. Ya could’ve had alla this seated across for you at a lovely dinner. Forget y’all. So maybe I am a lil anti Valentine’s lol.
Anyway, I started off with Love Me Not in the crease. The name of this shade describes my whole life and the color matches it perfectly. Like yaaaassss. I built it up a lot and it such a beautiful cool toned purple. Then I put Heart Eyes in the crease, in a v, to deepen it up and add some dimension. Then I put Make Me Blush on the lid. This color is so beautiful. I put it on dry and then wet to make the color pop. It came out so gorgeous. I didn’t even want to put a wing and ruin my beautiful work. Then I put Bae as a highlight on the eye and inner corner. I think this shade is a bit hard to blend out. It came out a bit patchy. And I used it in my face as a highlighter. It’s so light that it really works out nicely. I used Virginity blush. I had to really build it up and get my brush in there to get some color on my cheeks.
Overall, I think these babies are really great to work with. They are velvety smooth and all the shades are gorgeous. The shadows are very pigmented but they need to work on the blushes. I’m not sure if they wanted them to be muted but it doesn’t work for my skin tone.
Thank you guys so much for reading. Any questions at all, feel free to ask. Stay purple.
