Kyshadow Dupes for Less Than a Dollar Each!

Kyshadow Dupes for Less Than a Dollar Each!

Kylie Jenner Kyshadow the bronze Palette Dupes

Kylie Jenner is one of the most talked about Millennial Entrepreneurs to date. But when it's not a breakup or plastic surgery scandal; it's her line of cosmetics. Either way, Kylie is on everybody's lips...like literally.  See what I did there??

Personally, I don't get the hype. I admire Kylie's ambition but so far none of her products have made my heart skip a beat. And with the extra factors like rumoured knockoffs, dodgy lip brushes, savage prices (incl. shipping and import tax etc), and the never instock status...I'm not about to go out of my way to get my hands on a Kylie Product.

To add to her line of lip products, Kylie has just dropped a killer eye shadow palette and everyone is losing their minds over it! Now I'm sure you've seen some scandal or drama involving Kylie Cosmetics but for some reason people are willing to sell their souls to get their hands on the gear. 

But I've got some good news for you! The Kylie Bronze Palette is easier to get than you think. I recently picked up a Morphe 35o Palette from Cosmetics Obsession and I was pretty amazed at the similarities between the two. Infact I fell in love with my Morphe palette I decided to give one away to my readers! Why not enter to win?

The Morphe Brushes palette as almost 4 times as many shadows as the Kylie Cosmetics Bronze Palette and it's almost half the price! Shall we see how the swatches compare?

With the help of my girl Tati and her great video, I was able to see Kylie's shadows in action and compare them to my own picks. I also based my choices on how they looked once applied so they may not look identical on my hairy arm but on the eye they look incredible.

The wonderful thing about the Morphe Brushes 35o palette is if you don't think my 9 picks were perfect, there's still 26 other shadows to choose from! The only difficulty I had was the Morphe palette doesn't have a black shadow which in my defence, I didn't even realise that in the first place. But seriously, who doesn't have a matte black shadow in their collection? So I've included my personal drugstore favourite. Actually, I'm pretty sure this Maybelline The Nudes palette could be used as a Kylie Cosmetics dupe all on its own.

I also discovered that when swatching and researching that Topaz and Bronzite could be swapped around. Topaz is described on the Kyshadow site as a "matte finish true taupe" and Bronzite is described as "matte finish chocolate brown". So when I swatched  5E to initially be Topaz I thought it was too warm but when looking at the photos I'd probably use my original choices as 5E for Topaz and 3C for Bronzite. You'll also see Citrine/2E looks a little lighter/more yellow than Kylie's swatch but it matched Tati's swatch perfectly. It also looks identical on the lid. But it was a toss up between 2E and 2G. Either way, with the selection in the Morphe 35o palette you're bound to find the perfect shade for your skintone.

Let me give with wee Maybelline palette a quick shout. The black in here is like the smoothest, darkest black you will ever see. I use it as liner, to darken up edges or to smoke out pencils. Also in this palette, the browns are perfect for brow powders. One is warm, one is neutral and can both be darkened with the black. I really enjoy this palette thanks to the versatility of it. I take it will me when I travel too because that little matte cream makes a wonderful setting powder when you're in a pinch. You can snab this palette up in any drugstore or supermarket with a Maybelline counter. Also, sites like Feel Unique stock and ship globally.

Morphe Brushes are also more accessible than Kylie Cosmetics. You can purchase Morphe products direct from them or their list of UK/EU and Australian stockists.
