New! Joe Fresh Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette | Swatches and Review

Joe Fresh Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

I knew it was love at first sight when I walked into Shoppers Drug Mart and saw this Joe Fresh palette, but I decided to think with my head instead of my heart for a change and I walked away. After all, it's the first Joe Fresh palette I've ever seen. I had no idea if it had good pigmentation, wear etc.

I went home and couldn't stop thinking about this palette. It looked like everything I've been wanting in a palette recently.

Since my eyes are aging and becoming more and more hooded over the years, I find myself no longer wearing darker or even mid-tone shades on my lids. Instead, I prefer to wear light shades on my lids and create some dimension and try to lessen the appearance of my hoods with matte mid-tone shades in the crease. And, this palette is made up of mostly light, shimmery lid shades and has a good amount of mattes.

I couldn't take it anymore and I went back and picked it up and am I ever glad that I did!

I came home and swatched it right away. I was disappointed as the light shimmer shades seemed to have very little pigmentation. However, I found out that they go on my eyelids with much more pigmentation!

The palette has 12 shades, 4 of which are matte.

The matte shades include an ivory, a mid-tone cool brown, dark brown, and black.

There are 7 beautiful, light shimmer shades for my lids. These range from champagne to gold, taupe, and pinks. A great selection for everyday looks. These don't have glitter, just beautiful shimmer to them. The only shade with some glitter is the blue shade.

These shadows are very pigmented when placed on the lids. The shadows wear all day with no creasing and no noticeable fading. I wear my Essence I Heart Eye Base underneath, as I do with all my powdered shadows.

The mattes kick up quite a bit of powder as do most mattes. The dark brown and black mattes make great liner shades. I always appreciate a matte ivory shade in my palettes too! The only disappointment for me is the only mid-tone matte shade, it's very cool toned and shows up as a taupe on my eyes even though it swatches mauve. I wish they had used a warmer mid-tone matte brown shade, I think that would go better with the other shades in this palette. Luckily, I have a mid-tone warm brown shade to use with this palette, so it's definitely not a deal breaker for me.

The packaging is wonderful, it's very sleek and thin.

Overall, I am loving this palette and I am so happy that I followed my heart this time.

If you want a palette with a lot of beautiful light shimmery lid shades, I think you will love this and get a lot of use out of it.

This palette retails for $14 at Shoppers Drug Mart.
