Born Pretty Store, Kiss Beauty 12 Color Eyeshadow Review

Hey guys, today I'm going to review an eyeshadow palette from my new sponsor
Born Pretty Store!
I'm sure almost all of you must have heard of them already, they're very popular for their vast range of makeup, nail art and other (some almost magical) knickknacks!

Daisy from the store asked me to pick a product and I decided to go with an eyeshadow palette because you know, eye shadow junkie here! Lol! 
The one I picked was Kiss Beauty's 12 Color eye shadow palette, which I now have a love-hate relationship with! And I will tell you all about it in my review!

$5.67 (approx. Rs. 300)

I'm quite fond of the packaging actually, the lid is prone to scratching but the eyeshadows are all arranged like flower petals and I think it looks quite pretty. They're all arranged in separate quads, one of  black/ silver/ golds, one of pinks and purple and a nude one.
The set comes with two sponge tip applicators.

Smell and Texture:
Usually eye makeup products don't have a smell and I like it that way. This one has a strong smell of baby/ floral powder. If you have a sensitive nose you may not enjoy it.
The texture is different for every colour in the palette, it isn't consistently good or bad, but a mix of both.
Some are chalky, some are buttery smooth, I'll elaborate later.

All the colours have a glittery overspray, after removing that you get to the true colour of the eyeshadow. The eyeshadows themselves are quite shimmery!
I'll explain every colour, quad wise because, really they are all very different!

Quad #1 out of all the 3 is the best one according to me. The white in the top left corner is chalky and not pigmented, I've yet to find a white that is! Grrr...The top right is a lovely highlight colour, a white gold that goes on really smooth and shows up really well! The black is slightly shimmery but a very good quality black eyeshadow! It is disappointing when black is chalky or not dark enough, this on is great!The yellow next to the black has a hint of gold too, it isn't too chalky or smooth, right in the middle somewhere. Not bad!
A great combo to use for a glam night out!

Quad #2 is all pinks and a purple. The top two pinks are almost the same colour but the quality of the right one is better! The pink on the bottom left is chalky but surprisingly has good pigmentation! The purple is most disappointing in the whole palette, it looks vibrant in the box, but once swatched barely shows up. :(

Quad #3 are all neutral colours, I liked this one too. The colours were well pigmented except the one on the bottom left. The rop right makes a nice highlight and the copper is quite pretty!
Great for everyday!

Personally, I thought the palette needs more matte shades as all of them are shimmer, if you absolutely love shimmer you may enjoy this palette! The quality is unpredictable, where some are amazing colours, others are chalky. You do need a base under these shades for them to show up brightly! But they do last 5-6 hours on oily lids. ^_^
This is not a must have product of course but if you are new to makeup and don't want to spend on expensive products but still want colours or absolutely love shimmer, this palette might work for you! :)


I've used a primer or base for all the looks, the pink one especially I had to use the Painted Purple Color tattoo.

This may not be the best product Born Pretty Store has to offer but it is pretty value for money and offers a good range if you want colours, this palette comes in six different varieties!
