Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope.
It dawned on me that I never officially showed off my JKissa palette.
Since I’ve had plenty of days to play around with the palette I figured I would also do a mini review of it as well.
There are 12 matte and 6 shimmer shades in this palette and the total amount of product is .52 ounces making each shadow just under .3 ounces each.
This palette is 100% vegan and cruelty free and is the 2nd collaboration between JKissa and ELF (the first being a 7 pan eye shadow palette, blue liner, and a mascara) and in this second collaboration there is the 18 pan eye shadow palette (which I have in the picture above).
This palette is so fun to play with.
There is a ton of kick back in the pans with this soft pressed palette and more often than not there is also a ton of fallout on the face. I’ve learned t’s best to slowly build up the pigmentation of the shadows in this palette to avoid the fallout.
I have noticed when working with these shades that sometimes the can get a little patchy. Particularly the purple shades, but also the orange and yellow shades can sometimes lift in certain areas of the shade whilst buffing out. Also worth mentioning is that the orange shimmer shade is can be a little tough to build because it’s not as pigmented as the rest of the shimmer shades.
The shades are moderately pigmented, with some of the shades being more pigmented than others.
The shades do buff into each other fairly well but I have noticed they do not work well with other palettes, save for the shimmer shades which work fine with other palettes.
For this palette I would give it a solid A+. simply because of the few little issues with the palette.
Now let’s take a look at the swatches …. remember that as always all swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.
The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Casey, Millie, Yosemite, Peaky, Canolli, and Sadie. These shades are the lighter more brighter versions of the rainbow color scheme.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Strawberry, Tsuki, Firefly, Reagan, Bailey, and Confetti. These are the shimmery slightly metallic shades of the rainbow.
a 6 piece brush set called Furever Eyeshadow Brush Set (which I also purchased but is currently dirty) that retails for for $25 and is sold at Ulta (is sold out on the ELF website) which includes the: J1 (packer brush), J2 (multi tasker), J3 (fluffy blender brush), J4 (small bullet brush), J5 (angled liner brush), and J6 (flat definer brush).
The brush set has a rainbow handle with a purple ferrule. The synthetic bristles are super soft but also firm enough to preform their jobs well.
The brushes do not shed and they are some of the best quality of brushes ELF has put out to date.
My only wish would be that they would have come out with a face brush set too, but since JKissa doesn’t wear foundation I kind of understand why a set wasn’t created.
I give this brush set a solid A+++!!!! This again is the best brush set to date, in my opinion, that ELF has come out with.
and a eye shadow topper duo called Tsuki To My Heart that retails for $12 (at Ulta) for .3 ounces of total product and features the shades I’m Pupset (a bright green) and What a Pitty Smile (opalescent/clear). This was the only product I chose not to purchase simply because I don’t use eye shadow toppers much because they emphasize the texture of my lids.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.
Remember dolls …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
