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.

Saint

Saint is a soft, yellow gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the eyeshadow felt smooth, creamy, and dense without being difficult to pick up with a dry brush. It applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with little effort, and stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Florence

Florence is a medium-dark yellow with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, silky consistency that was blendable and easy to work with as the color had good substance to adhere well on bare skin. It lasted well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Selfish

Selfish is a muted, medium-dark orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was intensely pigmented and adhered evenly to bare skin. The consistency was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it was blendable and easy to work with on the lid. It wore nicely for eight hours before starting to fade noticeably.

Calabasas

Calabasas is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, silky consistency that had enough substance to adhere well to bare skin without sheering out too readily. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out with ease. The color stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Chicago

Chicago is a light-medium copper with warm, reddish undertones and warmer, gold sparkle and pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage–it really needed to be applied with a fingertip or with a dampened brush–with a drier, dustier texture that was prone to fallout. If I used it with a dampened brush (even with just water), it had nearly opaque coverage that held together better. Applied dry, it wore well for seven hours with additional fallout, and applied wet, it lasted for eight hours without fallout.

Fade

Fade is a muted, light-medium yellow with warm, peachy undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was soft, slightly powdery in the pan, but I was surprised at how well it kept its color and did not turn other shades gray. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

North

North is a dark, coppery brown with a frosted sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a denser, lightly creamy texture that applied fairly well with a brush, but it wasn’t quite as blendable as expected dry. If I used it with a dampened brush, it was richer, more pigmented, and blended out better. The color lasted for just over eight hours on me before starting to crease faintly.

Family is a medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, silky texture that was a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it blended out easily on my lid without losing its intensity. The color wore nicely for eight hours on me.

Gemini is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, slightly powdery texture that had some excess product that kicked up in the pan. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin, blended out nicely, and didn’t sheer out too readily. It stayed on well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but I’ll risk it…

Even if this palette held any interest for me—which it doesn’t, being that it’s just another warm-toned collection—I could not bring myself to give my hard-earned money to this family.

Seraphine, I feel much the same as you. These shades are not for me and they’re done to death but like you, I dislike the way that family presents itself so I wouldn’t be sending any of my money their way.

No secret, but my feelings on this palette are all over the place. It has excellent quality, but I do own ABH Modern Renaissance. Always said (and adamantly believed) that I would never buy anything from their family, and then saw a very different side to Kim during her interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live that softened my opinion about her to some degree. Like I said; all over the place! 💁

That would be nice. Even though I love warm toned palettes, I would love to see a really nice cool toned, or cool/neutral palette. I really love your reviews. They have been extremely helpful to me. I’ve been really happy with what I have bought because of them. I appreciate your dupe list as well.

I think this is a beautiful everyday palette, although I do wish that Chicargo was much better quality and perhaps a few more shimmers. Even so, the brand has done the mattes really, really well and not all brands do this.

So is this item permanent?? I think it’s beautiful and the colors totally speak to me, but I need another neutral palette like I need a hole in the head haha!
I would love to purchase after finishing at least one more neutral palette I already have…..
