Another influencer collaboration hit the market a few month s ago but I was actually excited for this one. If you watch Youtube, no doubt you’ll have seen MakeupbyJaack’s channel (see here). If not, where have you been and get over there now.
This was released by Makeup Revolution around four months ago (so about July) and is available to buy from Beauty Bay (see here) and the Makeup Revolution website (see here). The palette retails for £10 and I picked up mine from Beauty Bay. I think I got it in a sale for £7 and delivery was free as it was part of a huge haul.
The packaging of the palette is so minimalistic I love it. The outer box is designed to look as though it’s been ripped away to show the palette but everything else has a matte black finish. The name of the palette and collab were written in a satin black finish across both. All product information is listed on the back of the outer box. The palette is nice and compact but contains a huge mirror making it amazing for travelling around.
My only issue with the design of the palette is that the shade names are on the plastic sleeve that protect the pans. I’m happy about the sleeve but I’m probably going to lose this and then have no idea about the shade names. I love how the pans are laid out with each quarter working together for a range of looks.
You get 20 shades within this palette; 12 mattes and 8 shimmers. Some of the matte shades do contain a slight shimmer but I love the mix. I also like the range of shades as you have some neutrals with pops of colour. There is also a mix of warm and cool tones making it perfect for all seasons.
Absolutely love the shade names, they pretty much encapsulate Jack and his channel. The shades definitely match Jack’s aesthetic when looking at his makeup looks which doesn’t surprise me for his first collaboration.
When doing the swatches, some of the darker shades appeared to be quite chalky and patchy to swipe. However, they perform really well on the eye. Most of the shimmer shades are silky apart from Scilly which is a bit more firm and harder to work with.
For the most part, the shadows easy to blend except for a few of the darker shades (such as drama, king and introvert). However, you can build up the pigment with all the shades which in turn can help with the blend. For the shimmers, I found that they looked best when applied with the finger or a damp brush.
For me, the best shade in the palette is Tired AF. It’s so vibrant with a slight shimmer that is really easy to work with. The shades Scilly and Thunder have a great colour shift to them and Afters is the most gorgeous shimmer.
Overall, I am so so happy with this palette. I feel like it speaks to a lot of people due to the shades that are in there. It’s got a very versatile shade range that are easy to work with. They are buildable and relatively easy to blend.
