Jemma Kidd Make Up School Eye Essentials Shimmer Shadow

When the Jemma Kidd range was sold at Boots I never got round to trying it, it was then moved to Space NK to reposition it as a higher end brand. With this move the prices went up to reflect its new stance, the only problem with this is that if you had seen it for a lower price in Boots you’d not necessarily jump to pay a higher price for the same product.

ASOS had a 20% off code a while back so I decided to buy three of the eyeshadows (normal price £11 each).
ASOS also stocks the cheaper JK by Jemma Kidd range which I understand is sold at Target in America, I’d be interested to know how the cheaper range compares to the normal one in terms of quality.

All three eye shadows are shimmery but not frosty. They are softly pigmented and do have a really nice illuminating effect. They blend nicely and last all day providing you use a base (in my case TF shadow insurance).

The colours I got are:
Pearl:very sheer pink white highlight
Brulee:gold with a browned hue
Mocha:warmed chestnut brown

With Flash:

Without Flash:
Swatches: L-R Pearl,Brulee,Mocha

Although they are not unique colours they are very easy to wear and meld together really well and I have found myself using them a lot.
I would like to try more of the range but I find its more difficult finding reviews of the Make Up School products compared to the JK by Jemma Kidd products.

I bought my stuff from ASOS, once again I selected the super saver delivery and it was very quick but again not packaged that well. You can also buy this range from Space NK and Look


  1. These colours are so pretty! I haven't tried JK but I have to admit that the brands' products look lovely.

  2. Hi Marce,

    Yes, I don't think you could go wrong with these shades, shame their eyeshadow range is quite limited though. Thanks for stopping by :)
