Khroma Beauty: It’s Just More Kardashian Hype

It’s rare that I dislike a makeup so much that I will return it. However, when I figured in the price, it was easy to return this one.

It was my intention to try review this ‘Kard-ass-enin’ shit to make a fair judgement. And, I am doing just that. These are my own opinions and experiences. Your MMD (mileage may differ). I’m happy with shopping at Ulta because I was able to get store credit and make another purchase.

Most of these shades are pigmented, yes. However, when I applied them, once without a primer and then with Two Face Shadow Insurance, I got a chalky mess…

And, to show you my FOTD using Kim’s Kardazzle palette, this is what it looked like right after applying it…

This is what I looked like when I came home from work, 4-1/2 hours later…

NOTD EOTD 022 NOTD EOTD 021 NOTD EOTD 019The price of Khroma Beauty cosmetics is higher than most drugstore makeup. I would expect it to be of a better quality. Thus, I returned it because I was not satisfied.

For some reason, the www.khromabeauty.com website is only shown as ‘coming soon’.

If you bought this, did you have a different experience?

  • I haven’t worn this one yet, just swatched it, but the Khloe one is really great. I got long lasting wear with it. I have to try this soon so I can do a review, not just swatches.

    • Shelley, because I have oily eyelids, that’s why I got creasing. Even with a primer. The only part that lasted was the highlight color on my brow bone. I look forward to seeing what your results will be.

  • I saw some of the collection at Meijer (which is similar to Walmart) but was afraid to take a chance. I would like to know what the mascara is like.

    • You’ll have to let me know if you get some. I don’t plan on purchasing any more from this line.

  • I saw a couple of youtube reviews and they said the Khloe palette is better, but even with that they said save your money b/c it’s not that great.
