Jesse’s Girl Back Stage Collection Eye Shadow Palettes

PR sample. See bottom.

Jesse's Girl Back Stage collection review and swatches natural nudes sounds of the city

I popped into my local Harmon Face Values – we finally got one near me in Deptford, N.J. – and was excited to see two displays of Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics.

One held the brand’s amazing Liquid Eyeliner in black, and the other held the Back Stage Collection 10-pan eye shadow palettes.

Cross your fingers that the brand’s trial run with Face Values goes well, because that means wider availability!

So back to these palettes. We all know that nude and smoky is the strobing of eye makeup, so I was more than happy to take these palettes for a test drive!

The palette with more gray shadows is called Sounds of the City (on the right in the pic at top), and the collection that is more nudes and browns is called Natural Nudes (on left in pic at top).

Here are back-of-hand swatches of Natural Nudes (the first two horizontal swatches at the bottom are really drowned in my skin tone). Swatched over Smashbox shadow primer:

I used each palette once so far, and I was happy with the pigmentation, blend-ability and wear of each one!

Here’s a look I created with Sounds of the City:

Of the two, Sounds of the City is my favorite. But both are going to be perfect palettes for fall! And the best part? They’re only $6.99 a palette. Compared with the retail of other nude and smoky palettes out right now – this is a great drugstore way of getting your new trend fix.

My friend Niki over at the blog Hello Miss Niki has the full list of 50 Harmon Face Values locations that are carrying the limited Jesse’s Girl products – check out her post here to find one near you and go pick up these palettes!

    Great pigmentation for a drugstore palette!

    • BeautyJudy

      Agreed! 🙂

    I don’t think I have ever used Jesse’s Girl makeup!

    • BeautyJudy

      If you use drug store makeup, they’re definitely a brand to try!

    What great palettes!!

    • BeautyJudy

      They are!

  • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

    I really love both of these palettes! The mint eye liner is so cool with the look!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Brooke! I had been dying to try the liner, a LE WnW pencil!

    LOVE these 2 palettes! They look SO pigmented!

    • BeautyJudy

      They really are – I was impressed!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    Same here. I can’t find decent Jessie’s Girl collection here in Hawaii. I like the pop of green in your eye makeup

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Kath! They have great customer service through their website although I’d have to double check if they ship to Hawaii!

    So jealous! I can’t get Jessie’s girl here without ordering online. May have to, though! These look crazy pigmented. love the pop of eyeliner you did, too!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Nidia! I am glad at least that when I order from their site it processes pretty quickly! I ordered their colored liquid eyeliners because I was too lazy to check my local Rite Aid lol

  • marciaf

    The pigmentation is pretty amazing.

    • BeautyJudy

      Was excited in how easy these shadows were to blend

    Unfortunately I can’t get Jesse’s Girl where I live.

    • BeautyJudy

      They have fantastic customer service through their website! Shipping turnaround times are great too. Jessesgirlcosmetics.com

    Those are awesome nude palettes. I like the looks you created with them.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thank you! 🙂

  • http://www.crazybeautifulmakeup.com/ Heather

    These look very pretty but I can’t ever get Jesse’s Girl anywhere near me!

    • BeautyJudy

      Fyi you can buy on line! jessesgirlcosmetics.com I have ordered products online that I haven’t been able to get in store. I generally get a shipping notice within a day, two at the most! Great customer service.

    I love Jesse’s Girl eyeliner and lip balms and these look quite good as well. Both are bargains at that price!

    • BeautyJudy

      Their eyeliner is so awesome!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Just curious, did you apply the swatches over primer or bare skin? We don’t have Harmon in MA but I’m going to have to hunt these down!

    • BeautyJudy

      Over primer. I updated my post. I never wear shadow without primer!

    I like the layout of these palettes – very cool.

    • BeautyJudy

      Yes, it’s sort of like two quints

  • TinaBowling

    Oooo Sounds of the City looks so pretty! That palette is a total steal.

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s the one I love!!

  • robin

    These are so pretty and I love the looks you created!!!! I must, must, must start wearing eyeshadow on a regular basis. IDK why I don’t.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Robin! I don’t get to wear it everyday – a lot of times I’m not wearing makeup because I’m just home with the baby at this point! But I wore both palettes over the weekend and loved it!
