Like the Dom Pérignon of drugstore makeup palettes, the $26 JK Jemma Kidd Catwalk I-Kit will set your holiday budget back, but you may not mind if you’re a lover of sheer shadows and/or the classic neutral colors across the way at MAC.
The kit comes with a single creamy eye primer, a pair of dual-tipped mini-brushes and eight shadows (two of them, the highlight shadows, share a single large pan), quite a few of which look like sheerer versions of staple MAC neutrals to me.
At least they picked great products to use for inspiration, right?
Swatches from left: Exclusive Eye Prep & Primer, I-Design Eye Colour in 01 Elle, I-Design Eye Colour in 02 Vogue
I-Design Eye Colour 05 in Editor, I-Design Eye Colour 03 in Vintage, I-Design Eye Colour 06 in Vanity Fair, I-Design Eye Colour 04 in In Season, Exclusive Eye Shadow in Aubergine Shimmer, Eclusive Shadow/Liner in Black
Expect to spend your spare time adding these in layers, especially if you’re shooting for a bold look. I’ve been using at least three layers to get the rich, intense pigment I find myself craving from these. If, however, you desire a less makeup-ey makeup look, these shades should do you just fine.
