Askmewhats Reviews: Jessie Glova 28pcs Neutral Palette

Happy day everyone!

Let me tell you something, when Coastal Scents came out with their wonderful 28pcs Nikki (ahem Neutral) palette, I told myself I wanted one! International shipping has always been a nuisance to me so I never really got myself into ordering one. I want my eyeshadows pressed...not cracked after shipment!

It was heaven scent when these palettes are becoming reachable to our local market! With several distributors coming up with similar palette, what other excuses can I think of to steer away from MY palette? :P

I totally believe in match made in heaven! Introducing... the Jessie Glova Palette, MY palette!

Pretty imprint of the brand name





Jessie Glova 28pcs Neutral Palette says ---

Kimberly, our dear beauty blogger friend, and a Makeup Artist Jessie R. Glova, came up with their own line of cosmetics and brushes.

The Jessie Glova 28pcs Neutral Palette are similar to the Coastal Scents 28pcs Neutral Palette. They are imported and guaranteed of good quality.

Ingredients

Pros
  • inexpensive
  • great to take along especially if you're starting up on makeup classes
  • great for first time makeup users, wonderful to practice on different shades which doesn't make you go broke
  • it doesn't hurt that the palette has it's own brand name
  • most shades are pigmented and shades are all pretty
  • with this palette, you can create different types of neutral looks without a problem!
  • for local buyers: Quick shipping, doesn't have to wait long for international shipments
  • a lot of good matte shadows, I find it quite hard to look for great matte e/s!
  • shipping: great! Shipped fast and the product was packed really well
Cons
  • not all shades are pigmented enough, some are powdery (but who cares? 90% of the shades are wonderful)
Overall

I don't own the 28pcs Coastal Scents Neutral Palette so I cannot do a comparison, but I've seen the CS 28pcs neutral palettes from makeup artist friends, I would say this exactly the same distributor from the Coastal Scents one. The same or not, I wouldn't even worry about it as I find that eventhough I own a lot of eyeshadows, having this as part of my makeup kit is awesome! I don't have to worry about not having enough neutral shades!

People have been emailing me asking me where to start in purchasing eyeshadows. I would say, given the restrictions of funds, this is the best way to invest in good quality eyeshadows to practice, a lot of great shades wearable daily, that doesn't break the bank!

I am giving this 2 thumbs and 2 toes up! :P

Tips

  • just like any e/s, use a good base to make the e/s last longer and more vibrant
  • for shadows with a bit of glitters, apply using patting motion first to lessen fallouts
  • be creative! Mix and match different shades! I've tried it and it works beautifully!
Will I repurchase?

Yes, why not?
