KKW Beauty Classic Collection Palette, Lipsticks and Lipliners

September 15, 2018

I have been wanting these products a while now and since KKW Beauty had a Labor Day sale, I thought it was time to get the products! I bought the Classic Collection palette, Lipstick Peach 2, Lipstick Nude 5 and the lipliners Nude 1 and Peach 2. Anyway, I can’t wait for you to see the products!

I have to say that Kim Kardashian’s vibes are similar to mine. I love the soft pink packaging, the minimalistic vibes going on and I love neutral colors. As you might know, Kim doesn’t really wear bright colors. She mostly wears nude lipsticks and neutral eye looks. I mean, that’s exactly how I like my makeup. When she came out with a full nude lipstick line I was super excited. She then came out with The Classic Collection, which is also everything I want haha so I made a little KKW Beauty wishlist. Thankfully, she had a Labor Day discount and I felt it was finally time to order the things I really wanted. I still have some products on my wishlist but that’s for the next time haha!

As I already said, I bought the Classic Palette, the Peach 2 lipstick and Peach 2 lipliner which is from the same collection. Moreover, I bought lipstick Nude 5 from her nude lipstick line and lipliner Nude 1. I can’t wait to show you the swatches!

Lipsticks Nude 5 and Peach 2

The lipsticks came both in see-through plastic packaging with ‘KKW Beauty’ on it. I’ve never had a lipstick packaging look like this so I think it’s definitely an original idea. However, I’m not really sure if I think it’s looking luxurious though. It might look a little bit cheap but on the other side, I do think it matches the brand very well. I actually don’t mind it, because I can throw the plastic packaging away. The actual lipstick tube is see-through as well and has the soft pink inside as well. I like the idea of the see-through packaging but just like the plastic packaging, I’m not really sure if I like it or not. I have to say it’s easy to see which color it is so that’s a plus.

Here’s a closer look! The left shade is Nude 5 and the right shade is Peach 2. I think both colors are very pretty and I like how they look in the tube. Nude 5 is a mid-tone rosy nude and Peach 2 is a pinky peach. You can tell that Nude 5 is more brownish and Peach 2 is indeed more peachy (duh haha).

Swatches

The top shade is Nude 5 and the bottom shade is Peach 2. The left picture is with natural light and the right picture is with a flashlight. The lipsticks are applying very smooth, feel very creamy on the lips and doesn’t dry out my lips. The lipstick feels creamy the whole time, is very pigmented and stayed on such a long time! Even longer than I expected, because creamy lipsticks normally don’t stay on super long on my lips. But these lipsticks did so I’m impressed!

The colors are so pretty! Nude 5 is a perfect nude, slightly darker than my lip color so you can definitely tell that I’m wearing lipstick but it’s still a neutral, nude color. Peach 2 is brighter pinky peach than I expected it to be, but I still like that color very much!

Lip liners Nude 1 and Peach 2

My first KKW Beauty lip liners! The packaging is slightly darker than the palette packaging but it’s still the usual soft pink. The pencils itself are fully soft pink as well with the logo on it. It’s super pretty! The only thing that’s a little bit difficult, is that you can’t see the color of the pencil so you really have to keep the packaging or look very closely on the pencil to see which shade it is.

Swatches

Here are the lip liners besides the lipsticks. The top one is Nude 1 lip liner with Nude 5 lipstick beneath them are the Peach 2 lip liner and lipstick. The left picture is with natural light and the right picture is with a flashlight. Just like the lipsticks, the lip liners are very creamy and apply smoothly. The colors match very well with the lipsticks, which is nice. I like how I can use both the lip liners with other lipsticks as well.

The Classic Palette

It’s a little bit hard to get the packaging turning out good on a picture. That’s because it’s very minimalistic, so the logo is very subtle there and the back has product information in white little letters. It’s better readable when you have the palette in your hands though. Also, this packaging is very pretty and I love how clean it looks and yeah I think it’s gorgeous!

Oh wow, I love the colors! It’s a very neutral palette and I love it so much. The metallics in this palette look absolutely stunning. This palette contains colors which I wear most of the time and I like it so much. It’s perfect!

Shade description

Saint: Metallic champagne
Florence: Matte yellow-brown
Selfish: Matte terracotta
Calabasas: Matte light brown
Chicago: Metallic bronze
Fade: Matte creamy beige
Dash: Matte warm taupe
North: Metallic copper
Family: Matte red-brown

I like the names! She named her shadows after her family and things which have a meaning to her family. I think that’s super cute though!

Swatches

Look at these swatches! The left picture is with natural light and the right picture is with a flashlight. From top to bottom: Saint, Florence, Selfish, Calabasas, Chicago, Fade, Dash, North, Family, Gemini.

All the shades performed very well, are very pigmented and I didn’t have problems with them at all. None of the shades is patchy or powdery. Moreover, I didn’t even have kickback in the pan or fallout on my face. Nothing! I think that’s very impressive! Kim really did an amazing job creating these shadows for real! The colors are super pretty, they’re matching perfectly together and the quality is amazing, that’s perfect, right? I think it is!

Product information

I bought these products during their Labor Day sale so I had a discount, but you can still get these products for their normal price though, which I’ll list here:

Final Thoughts

If I could only recommend one thing then it would definitely be the palette. To be honest, you need this one in your collection! The lipsticks and lip liners are amazing as well, stay on very long and are really comfortable. KKW Beauty is one of my favorite brands out there and I can’t wait to see what they’ve in store for us in the future!

Hope to see you next time loves,
