Jemma Kidd Eye Wardrobe Quartet in Metallica


Jemma Kidd Eye Wardrobe Quartet
Fragrance Direct

As your probably aware Jemma Kidd's make up empire has recently gone into administration, in my eyes it's a huge shame as her make up line has some gems to be found.
But it does mean that discount beauty websites such as Fragrance Direct or Cheap Smells are selling her line for extremely low prices.
This Eyeshadow Palette was originally £24.00 and I snapped it up for only £2.99!
On the Fragrance Direct site there are still plenty of bargains going for this range .


The packaging is basic but chic. 
Black and matte is always good in my book.
The compact is also very sturdy so won't just open on it's own in your make up bag.
In all honesty when I ordered this off the website I thought the shades were powder based and when I received it I was a little disappointed at the cream formula but I needn't have been.
They apply smoothly and are well pigmented. 
With a good primer they last well too, I'm not sure about on oily lids though as being a cream based product they may slip a bit.
I also love the name of the palette...may make me slightly biased but who can resist a bit of old school rock


In the palette you get a complete look with a highlight, lid and crease shade
All in one place...perfect
The colours are perfect for an everyday look
The above swatches are just one swipe over the shadows and you can see how pigmented they are.
Overall I am very impressed and would definitely recommend picking this up whilst you can and maybe try a few other bits from the Jemma Kidd line too.

Happy New Year everyone!
Hope you all had a great one

  1. Thanks for this post :) I also thought the eyeshadowas were powder and not cream but I do really like cream eyeshadows so I think I need this.

    I will have a look on Fragrance Direct to see if they still have it. Such a bargain but as you say... such a shame about the makeup line going under.
