Classic Blossom

KKW Beauty Classic Blossom 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.60 oz.) contains a mix of rose and red-tinged neutrals from pale peach to red to deep plum. While the texture of most of the mattes was incredibly silky, it did result in some powderiness and not all shades were richly pigmented–some were buildable and others definitely needed primer underneath them. The shimmer formula was inconsistent as some shades were quite nice to work with but a couple had room for improvement. Despite the shortcomings, it was one of those palettes that doesn’t seem to perform well looking at swatches alone but ended up being relatively easy to work with overall (the two deeper shades being more buildable made them more foolproof).

Classic

KKW Beauty Classic 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette with a mix of mattes and shimmers (though only three shimmers). While the colors may feel overdone to those who have already enjoyed quite a few palettes over the last few years, the palette performed well, so a high-performing product is always welcome in my book! I was impressed by the mattes as they had a “thicker” consistency that made them more pigmented but still very blendable and easy to build up if preferred.

Super Nude

KKW Beauty Super Nude Gloss ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light peach with warm undertones and barely-there flecks of gold. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was as expected based on the brand’s description of it being sheer with a very milky quality to its finish. The latter resulted in color that settled into lip lines (both vertical and horizontal ones for me), despite the actual gloss going on more evenly and didn’t have streaking along the edges. The texture felt smooth and was moderately tacky from what I could tell. It wore well for three hours but was lightly hydrating. There was no discernible scent or taste.

The brand has set a restock date for the KKW x Mario collection for 4/20 at noon PST.

Mario

KKW Beauty Mario 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features 10 eyeshadows across shimmery and matte shades. Nine of the ten are in the neutral family and then there’s the pop of blue. The eyeshadows are supposed to be formulated for “easy layering and blending.” Per the brand, the metallic eyeshadows can also be used “wet or dry” and with “brushes or fingers” for a “saturated pearlized color finish.”

I really liked the matte formula, as it was denser but pigmented and very easy to use–I can see exactly what the brand meant by “easy layering and blending.” I also recall Mario mentioning in an Instagram story about these working better on the eye than just swatched (and I’ve found instances where how something swatches on the arm is inconsistent with actual performance on the lid!). They had the type of pigmentation and overall texture that I didn’t notice any shortcomings in pigmentation in practice as they applied and built up or blended out as I wanted them to. Glam was beyond fantastic–one of the best textures I’ve ever had the pleasure of testing!–but 2008 was a bit of a let-down.

The brand has set a restock date for the KKW x Mario collection for 4/20 at noon PST.

Classic K

KKW Beauty Classic K Crème Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium peach with warm, rosy undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer that applied evenly across my lips and did not drag during application.

The lipstick was described as “full-coverage” with “creamy wear” that was supposed to be “incredibly hydrating.” The texture was lightweight, smooth, and not too thick or too thin, though there was a touch of product that gathered in my deeper lip lines (but not enough that it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance). It wore well for four and a half hours and was moderately hydrating. It didn’t seem like it had fragrance, but it smelled rather waxy to me, but it did not have any taste.

The brand has set a restock date for the KKW x Mario collection for 4/20 at noon PST.
