Happy Sunday, everyone! Last year Jenn Im released some makeup products in collaboration with Colourpop, but it was sold out by the time I decided to purchase the collection. Almost a whole year later, I was able to snag a couple of products during the special re-release.
:Jenn Ne Sais Quoi | Super Shock Shadow Collection:
Jenn Ne Sais Quoi is a play on the French phrase “je ne sais quoi” and Jenn’s name. This quad consists of 4 shades of Colourpop Super Shock eyeshadows. All of the shade have french names: Un, Deux, Trois, and Quatre (one, two, three, and four). Un is a metallic champagne shade which is perfect for an inner corner highlight or for dusting all of the lids. Deux is a satin brown shade. Trois is a satin reddish brick brown shade. Quatre is a dark matte brown shade. For the price point, the eyeshadows are a really good quality. They are soft, opaque, and easy to blend. The pigmentation is great with a brush and even better using your fingertips. With the different finishes, you can create a variety of looks with all four colors without reaching for another palette.
Right now one of my favorite looks is Trois all over the lid, Deux to blend it out, Quatre in the outer v, and Un as the inner corner highlight and slight dusting over the center of the lids. Since the colors are warmer they are perfect for summer.
:Dohee | Ultra Matte Satin Lip:
Dohee is orangey coral shade. The formula isn’t drying but isn’t completely matte either. Even though I like the formula, the coral shade pulls too orange on my skin tone and isn’t flattering one me. I think if you are more tan, you will be able to pull this shade off.
Thank you for reading!
This palette is perfect for fall with the burgundy tones. The neutrals would help tone down and blend out the burgundy for a very wearable everyday look. I can’t wait to pair it with a gradient burgundy lip.
I love the suede packaging, it reminds me of my first Naked palette. There are a total of 14 finely milled eyeshadows with warm neutrals and pops of berry. Anastasia Beverly Hills is improving their eyeshadow formula and I’m tempted to the Master Class by Mario palette as well. I’m supposed to saving for the relaunch of Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette…

Bottom: Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Venetian Red, Warm Taupe & Realgar
Shifting from mermaids to unicorns, this palette is that I wished the Urban Spectrum Palette to be. There are three rows each with seven eyeshadows organized in a rainbow fashion. 21 Urban Decay Eyeshadows are showcased against a shiny black case.
I can see it used with a trio of like colors vertically or even a full on rainbow eye with an entire row. As someone who usually gravitates towards natural eyeshadows, this will be fun addition to my makeup collection.
I love that it has a hinged lid with a huge mirror. One of the reasons why I didn’t purchase the Urban Spectrum Palette was due to the lack of a hinge. This palette is more travel friendly than the Urban Spectrum Palette as well, but I personally wouldn’t travel with this palette.
