We Celebrated Kim K's Birthday By Testing Out Her Flashing Lights Collection

Welcome to Unfiltered, where we give our honest, no-B.S. reviews of the most buzzed-about beauty products, brands, and services on the market right now.
It's Kim Kardashian West's birthday weekend, and although you probably won't be partying with the reality star at her festivities — whether it's a big Hollywood bash or a family affair — she's making sure that you celebrate with her one way or another. Kardashian West has taken notes from little sister Kylie Jenner, releasing a celebratory KKW Beauty makeup collection for her 38th birthday. But instead of going with themed packaging or an array of products like her younger sibling, Kardashian West went for a one-and-done lineup of shimmering eyeshadows.
The Flashing Lights collection, that's available now, features 14 brightly-colored eyeshadows in both loose and pressed powder formulas, which you can buy separately or in full sets. The colors range from bold pinks and purples to more traditional silver and gold. And no matter the shade these eyeshadow colors are bright, making them perfect for the your next big party, Halloween, or a Saturday night in eating takeout sushi (no judgements here). Getting ahead of the celebrations, we decided to honor KKW's birthday by putting her collection to the test with a few R29 staffers. Ahead, their honest opinions.
