JK Jemma Kidd Puts Neutrals and Brights In the Spotlight With This Spring Palette of Pieces for Eyes and Cheeks

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Jemma Kidd, Makeup, Palettes, Product Reviews

If all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players…that’s a hella big stage. Should be plenty room for everyone to share the spotlight.

Oh, but before I go on, can I get a couple minutes to check my makeup? Because I don’t want to go out there with lipstick on my teeth. 🙂

And another thing, before my moment in the spotlight, 1) I hope I’m not wearing clothes that make me look like a pint-sized linebacker (a reoccurring theme in my life), and 2) I hope I am wearing makeup that mixes sassy neutrals with something bright, like the new JK Jemma Kidd On Location Palette in In the Spotlight ($25).

My wish for you: I hope you get your time to shine, and when it comes, I hope it’s doing something you care deeply for.

Jemma sprinkles a couple of fun brights into this mostly neutral palette of pieces for eyes and cheeks, and it’s all about flexibility. You can keep the look casual by incorporating a nude lip, like I’m doing in the pic above, or go for something brighter like the face shot down below.

Swatches from the left: Cream eye primer, gray eyeshadow, purple eyeshadow, taupe eyeshadow, beige highlighter, teal eyeshadow, peach blush

ME: OHMIGOD, sweetie! I’m freaking out.

EL HUB: Why?

ME: I’m having a Cremesheen emergency!

EL HUB: A what…?

ME: A Cremesheen emergency! I can’t find my favorite tube of MAC Cremesheen. I’m freakin’ out!

EL HUB: Why don’t you just use one of the 20 other tubes of lipstick in your purse?

TABS: Oh, boy. Here we go again…

ME: Hahaha. So not funny! It’s a gloss.

EL HUB: Okay.

ME: Can you take me to Target?

EL HUB: What? Really? It’s the middle of the night, babe. And they don’t even sell MAC at Target.

Wait — how do I know that? I know way too much about makeup…

ME: And that’s why I heart you. I HEART YOU! I heart you so much that you’re going to drive me to Target to look at the JK Jemma Kidd Air Kiss Glosses.

EL HUB: I am?

ME: You are. 🙂 They have two new colors for spring, a coral called Work It and a sheer pink called Flaunt, $16 each, and they’re slippery and slick like the MAC Cremesheens.

The JK Jemma Kidd Fashionista Palette Will Make Sheer Your Eye Makeup Doesn’t Overpower Your Look

Look at those duds! 🙂

The JK Jemma Kidd Fashionista Palette looks awfully cute from here. The clear plastic top, complete with pink floral line art, makes it easy to see the nine powder shadows, two blushes (one cream and one powder), eye/lip primer, and bronzer tucked away inside.

Ladies who like their neutrals with a dash of color might find a lot to like about this limited edition palette. It’s $27 (available exclusively from Urban Outfitters), which works out to about a little more than $2 per color, and it’s sturdier than it looks.
