Klara Cosmetics Shimmer Eyeshadow Rose Gold Collection and Kiss Proof lipstick in Lilac Lover Review + Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

I've got some pretty new things to share with you today, and that's a lovely little goodie box that arrived a few weeks ago from Klara Cosmetics! In case you aren't familiar with Klara Cosmetics, they're an amazing Australian company which make gorgeous eyeshadows and liquid lipsticks.

I've got a mini Kiss Proof lippy from them which I absolutely adore, so I couldn't help but do a little jig of excitement when this stylish black box arrived. Let's take a look inside, shall we?


There were four beautiful single shadows from the shimmer shadow Rose Gold collection, and a mini matte Kiss Proof in #12 - Lilac Lover! As the name infers, the shadows in the rose gold collection have a slight duochrome effect, with the base colour being quite deep and a slight rose gold sheen on the surface. Now, I'm an avid lover of anything rose gold, so I was really happy to see this collection!

The four shadows are described as follows:

Rose Gold Azure - shimmery azure blue with slight gold tones
Rose Gold Amethyst - shimmery purple with golden tones
Rose Gold Jungle - shimmery deep green with golden tones
Rose Gold Nude - satin nude with pretty gold tones

These eyeshadows are really beautiful, and last up to 14 hours without creasing or fading with the use of my Urban Decay primer potion underneath. I've also layered it on top of my Maybelline Color Tattoos and MAC Paint Pot to deepen the intensity. I love that these are buttery and blend beautifully, so it's a dream to create looks with these. The only drawback to this collection is that Rose Gold Nude tends to disappear slightly into my skin, but that's more because of my skintone than any other issue.

The shadows are housed in sturdy black pots that remind me a little of MAC packaging, and fortunately, are easy enough to open that you don't have to worry about breaking a nail. The little clear window in the top allows you to see which shade is housed inside.

I'm a big fan of the Kiss Proof lipsticks, as the colour lasts absolutely ages without the need to touch up. The Kiss Proof lipsticks can dry out lips somewhat, especially if you're prone to dry lips naturally, as I am, so I would recommend prepping lips well before applying. I do this by exfoliating, applying a deep conditioning treatment like Nuxe Reve de Miel, leaving a few minutes for it to sink in, and then gently blotting before applying the Kiss Proof lipstick with the doe foot applicator provided. These lipsticks are meant to last 24 hours and I can attest that the claim is pretty true to form, as I went to bed wearing this once and woke up with it looking almost perfect! The things I do for my love of blogging!

The Kiss Proof lipsticks retail for $29 full-sized, or you can pick up a set of four full-sized lipsticks for $89. I only wish they sold the miniatures, as I'm running out of storage space in my lipstick drawer! Each individual shadow retails for $20. Shop the Kiss Proof Collection here, and the Rose Gold shadows here, or at selected Coles supermarkets.

Do you like the look of this collection, lovelies? Have you tried Klara Cosmetics before?

Much love,
MM.

  1. wow, those shadows look stunning! I think the kiss proof is the same shade sample I have, it's really drying on my prone-to-drying lips so I don't tend to use it as often as I would like to x

    1. Aren't they just, Loz?

      Yep, it's definitely good to prep lips well before applying, but it's totally worth it for the colour pay off!

  2. The shadows look amazing. And I know you'll do some incredible eye looks with them. :)

    I wish they sold in my local Coles. It's always nicer to check it out in person.

      I'm sure they will get there sooner rather than later! Absolutely agree, and being able to swatch a tester is even better!

  9. These look great, I especially like the look of the liquid lipstick. Lipstick always wears quickly on me but hopefully this wouldn't. Putting it on my list of things to buy!
