Disney Jasmine PaletteHi all! Sorry for the long gap between posts. Between being sick and having 12 hr work days, it been a long couple of weeks.
On to makeup talk! The Cinderella palette definitely impressed me last year so when I found out Volume 2 for Jasmine was coming out, I immediately popped it in my cart on Sephora Online. When I received it, I found myself just as impressed as I was with Volume 1. This was a well thought palette, from the external design to the shadows themselves!
I will give them credit, they put a lot of thought into the external design of the palette. The palette is held in a cardboard box. Both the palette and the box have unique covers. I really like the main cover of the palette, it has Jasmine in gold and then has a black inlay surrounding it. The palette pulls out using a raspberry colored tassel. One thing that a was cute touch was on the external box, the barcode is in the shape of the magic lamp.
Unlike the Cinderella palette which was composed of 20 eyeshadows, the Jasmine palette contains only 15 eyeshadows but has a bronzer and blush. The shadows are well-pigmented but they don't hold as well as some of the other high end brands. If you don't use a primer, they can smudge easily. They all were pretty nice to apply, the one I had some issue with was "Ali Ababwa". It was very pliable or pigmented as a shadow. The color array was amazing, you get everything from neutrals to those bright colors that just pop!
The bronzer is far more gold then what I would prefer to use a bronzer so I think I will just use it as an eyeshadow. The blush is a rusty red, again, it's a bit darker of a tone then I use so I will probably use it as an eyeshadow as well.
