This is the best bit. Swatching this palette was an absolute dream. All the shades are so interesting and the textures are varied and glorious! There was a lot of ooohing and ahhhing going on when I took these photos!
In photos I’ve seen of this palette, quite a few of she shades look similar-ish (not a word I know), but in real life they are all quite unique from each other.

My Review of Byredo Flora Kalahari Palette
This is such a gorgeous palette. The packaging is beautiful, and even though it is shiny and mirror-like, it doesn’t get as fingerprint-y as you’d imagine!
I love the mix of finishes in the palette with mattes, shimmers and glitters, and there is plenty of really interesting duo-chrome action going on too!
All the shades are super creamy, silky and soft, and each one is really pigmented. The textures of Sandstorm and Adventurous are truly out of this world. I think those two may be my absolute favourites from the palette but to be honest, they are all my favourites!!
The formula is super longwearing and it literally stays put with no movement, fading for creasing. It’s really good. Even the glittery glitters are smooth and creamy. Love them.
