Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Back Stage Collection Eye Shadow Palettes - Pics, Swatches, and Reviews


Today I am bringing you some eyeshadow palettes from the cruelty-free brand Jesse's Girl Cosmetics.  It's been nearly five years since I met Jesse and Julie G at their booth at Cosmoprof North America.  It's hard to believe it's been that long but what a blast that was.  Jesse is hilarious and Julie G is kind and warm and I just fell in love with her.  When the opportunity came to review the Sounds Of The City and the Natural Nudes Collection eyeshadow palettes, I jumped at the chance to work with them again.  Let's take a look.

The Natural Nudes Collection palette, ($6.99), has ten warm shades ranging from a very light beige to a deep brown.  The idea is that you can easily take this from day to night.  Just pop it in your purse and you're ready to go anytime.  It works from home to office to a night out and is travel friendly.  When I gave a first glance on my social media channels, people were dying to see it swatched and reviewed.  You can see why.


Isn't it pretty?  It weighs 13 grams so it won't add bulk to your carry-on bag or your purse or backpack.  It's got a nice ten pan selection of nudes...and hello, aren't we all just drawn to that amber in the top row?  Yaaaaaaas!!

It swatches nicely.  Because it is a nude palette, you're sure to find one of the colors will match your skintone and the bottom, second from the left, matched mine.  However with a primer, you can enjoy any of the colors.  Here is the top row in full on sun:


And inside my house:


And the bottom row:


And all together.


I've been wearing both palettes a lot over the past couple of weeks to get a feel for them so that I can give you my analysis.  Somehow during that time, I didn't get a picture.  I sent a lot of pictures to Snapchat but only saved one dorky picture from Snap...if you want to see it.  I was trying out the Jesse's Girl matte liquid lipstick in the color Angelic.  It's a beautiful coral rose.  These are one of my top three favorite liquid lipstick formulas.  It's lightweight when you apply it and yet is very long lasting.  Super comfortable to wear and not drying whatsoever.   They are just $3.99 each and I'm going to need every color!!


The other Back Stage Collection shadow palette is called Sounds Of The City.  I love that name.  I was ecstatic when I saw the cool toned nudes.  How often do you see a cool toned shadow palette anywhere anymore, especially one with nudes?!?!?


Again, you can take this palette from easy daytime to dramatic evening, and I've done so.  For my skintone, the three shades on the top row that look similar...they show up similar on my eyes as well.  For my personal coloring, more variation of these shades might make the palette a little better for me but at $6.99, I'm not complaining!!!  I'm getting several looks that I can wear.



To me, the matte shades on the bottom of the palette have a stronger payoff than in the Natural Nudes Collection.  Aren't these fun?  You can certainly mix and match the palettes...I haven't done so yet in order to keep my opinion of each pure and set on each particular palette.  I've worn this one a lot.

As a matter of fact, during the SAG Awards, I was observing the makeup trends and was playing around with a red carpet look.  I noted all the nude eyes that I saw.  It was like the Louvre...there were nudes everywhere!!!  So I grabbed the Sounds Of The City Collection to do the beige lids that I was seeing, and threw a little drama in the crease to satisfy my craving and this is what I came up with.


I'm having a lot of fun creating with these palettes.  They have medium pigmentation...not too light and not too heavy.  The colors are buildable.  I have to be careful with the Sounds Of The City Collection or I can make it too monotone on my skintone.  You just can't beat the bargain of this cruelty-free brand.

You can purchase Jesse's Girl Cosmetics at their website, Amazon.com, and Rite-Aid.  Don't overlook this brand.  They have some of my favorite nail polishes and lipglosses, too.  Be sure to keep up with them on social media on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest and now on Snapchat as well.

  2. This is a new brand for me and I love the nude palette, such a great everyday use. I must admit that I love the colors with just a little sparkle in them as they really do make my eyes pop. Quite surprising how you can make so many different looks with these palates and I love your tip about using a primer to make additional subtle changes.

  4. Wow, what a fun look. I really like the eye shadow. Not too bright, but enough color to be fun. I'm not much into make up but these I might be interested in trying out. I also really like the lip color. It looks fab on you!

  5. That Natural Nudes palette is gorgeous! Perfect for glowing and bronzed look :) I have never tried anything from Jesse's Girl since it's not being sold in Finland. Maybe I need to look into getting it shipped here :)

  6. I've never heard of Jesse's Girl but I love these color combos and the price point. I'm still figuring out the best makeup for me so a palette with several shades is usually my go-to. I think the Sounds of the City palette would work best for me. I love that it's good for night and day!

  14. I don't wear a whole lot of makeup -- but eyeshadow and mascara are the two items that I don't leave the house without! I love these palettes, as I'm typically drawn to nudes and more subtle colors. Love the way they look on you!

  16. I love the Sounds of the City color palette. That looks like something that would be perfect for me, and I'm almost out of eye make-up so I am off to find this!

  17. Aw man. I miss wearing make-up. Since I moved to a farm I wear some stuff under my eyes to cover my circles and lipstick. This would be fun to get for those few nights out where I could get dressed up.

  20. Nude Palettes are one of my favorite eye shadow palettes as they are super versatile and work for pretty much every eye color. I am also obsessed with purple palettes as well.
