Jesse’s Girl: Pure Pigment Eye Dusts

One of the highlights of 2012, for me, was getting to attend Cosmoprof in Las Vegas, back in July. I stopped by Jesse’s Girl cosmetics booth and got to meet Jessi, himself!! He’s such a down-to-earth type of guy.

After reading blog reviews on Jesse’s Girl cosmetics, I finally got my hands on some to try out. And, these mineral eye shadows, called Pure Pigment Eye Dusts, do not disappoint me one iota…

These over-the-top sparkly shadows are the most sparkly of all my collection. I’m in heaven with these and my heaven is sparkly!!!…

I was expecting a cooler, blueish cast to ‘Pixie Dust’. So this golden cast is like nothing else I own. Pleasant Surprise!!!

‘Ultra Violet’ is so much brighter than the photos tell. Like purple? Please!!!!!

‘Sunset Blvd’ is swatched below ‘Ultra Violet’. And, I need to warn you: ‘Sunset Blvd’ is shifty. Not in character but in color. It goes from peachy to orange to smatterings of pink. Something happened over the past year: I look good wearing peach colors. I have always avoided them because I have such blue undertones to my skin. But, I’m certainly happy to open the makeup doors and clear off room on the Vanity table for ‘Sunset Blvd’!…

I have ‘Sunset Blvd’ on my lid with ‘Fairy Dust’ on my brow bone. If you think this is sparkly, you should see it foiled. And if you do, you better be wearing your welder’s glasses! It’s HOT!

Do keep in mind, these are mineral powders. And, since they are super sparkly, there is fall-out. I used a tapping motion to set these minerals into place on my eyelid. Then I used a fan brush to whisk away the fall-out.

You can order these from Jesse’s Girl website. They are called Pure Pigment Eye Dusts and they are $4.99 each. There are a total of 28 colors to pick from. I see plenty more colors I want to pick up. How about you?

Jesse’s Girl: Brown Eyed Girl 9 Pan Palette

After Cosmoprof, I got to try out some Jesse’s Girl products for the first time. I sort of had that feeling I’d like them. And, sure enough, I do!

This is a neutral/brown palette called ‘Brown Eyed Girl’…

My driver’s license says I have brown eyes. But, if someone would take the opportunity to check out my peepers they’d find out they are half green too. I guess that’s a brown/green hazel color?

One thing that is clear, these colors are gorgeous and are all meant to be together…

The colors in the photo are rather pretty but they are not accurate. My white balance on my camera is well, not balanced! Some of the shades are right on but a few are not. The orange shade, third from the right is more golden than orange. And the last one on the right is a gilded brown rather than a mauve that the photo shows.

Here, maybe this will help. These are swatches for you to check out…

And the last four…

They are all shimmery. I like that they are velvety soft and blend like nobody’s business. I tried the fourth one from the left foiled and it did a wonderful job.

If you like the current trend of the neutral eyeshadow look, ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ would certainly be a palette worthy to add to your collection. I found these shades played awesomely well with other shadows too.

Jesse’s Girl can be found at Rite Aids. However, if there are no Rite Aids by you, don’t despair like I did, at first. You can order yours right from Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics website. And did I mention that this palette is only $3.99?!! For less than $20, you can get the pink, purple, blue and green 9-pan palettes as well! That appeals to the palette-lover that I am, as well as the thrifty side too.

What Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics do you have? Are you as pleased with the quality as I am?

Jesse’s Girl: Mineralized Baked Powder Eye Shadow in Rosemary Frost

After years of hearing nothing but good stuff about Jesse’s Girl cosmetics, Jesse, himself, gave me some products to try out!! I met him at this year’s Cosmoprof in Las Vegas and not only was he super nice, I found him to be an ordinary guy that started a cosmetic company that just happens to be very popular. When we talked with Jesse, he made us feel that he had all the time to talk with us about his company and where he wanted to go. It was all very interesting.

Seeing this shadow made me giddy, and it’s purple, and it’s mineralized baked, and it’s pretty…

what’s not to like about it?!

‘Rosemary Frost’ sounds like a heroine from a romance novel, doesn’t it? But, this shadow makes my eyes look romantic.Purple shadows bring out the brown and green in my eyes.

I think this looks like a planet. The white and purple mixture greats a frosty, vibrant shade…

Sometimes I find that baked cosmetics can be hard and difficult to transfer to the brush and then to the lids. I didn’t have a problem with ‘Rosemary Frost’. I found it soft and completely blendable.

A quick swipe on my arm in indirect sunlight…

And here, this is at another angle…

I can’t help to notice that ‘Rosemary Frost’ is pretty at any angle. Jesse’s Girl is sold at Rite Aid drugstores. Bummer, that there are no Rite Aid’s in Florida. However, not all is lost; they have a website. There are six different shades in the Mineralized Bake Eye Shadow line. Oh, and one more nice thing: this shadow is only $3.99.

Tell me if you have tried any Jesse’s Girl cosmetics. What do you recommend I get next?
