Julie Hewett Eyeshadows

Although Julie Hewett seems to be known about, I think it’s a brand that gets overlooked. I only have a small range of items from the range but am very pleased with what I have.
I bought an eyeshadow palette (single pans cost £7.50 each and the empty palette costs £8). I wasn’t able to find a wealth of reviews/pictures for all the shades so I played it safe and went for the more natural shades.
I got the following:(shown clockwise from top left in palette)
Cappuccino: Matte earthy brown
Runway: subtly shimmered dusky mauve
Remy: subtly shimmered clay, slight golden hue.
Dovima: Frosty pale pink highlight
Swatches below L-R:Dovima,Cappuccino,Runway,Remy (please click to enlarge)
I somehow missed that Dovima was a frost finish when I ordered it (I’m not a fan of frosty anything) and the texture feels a bit gritty. The texture of the other three shadows is really smooth. All the shadows have great pigmentation, blend beautifully and last well. Although I won’t be getting the frost finish again I will be ordering some more of the other shadows.

The below blogs have some great posts on JH products,

I bought all my JH products from the delivery was really quick and they included lots of samples, they also stock Kevyn Aucoin and Ellis Faas amongst others.


  1. I'm really curious about this line after reading your and Grace's reviews, I might just HAVE to cave and get some of the more colourful options. Love your neutrals of course, it's just that wearing glasses most of the time means that my eyes need a bit of colour on them! Are you planning on purchasing any glosses from the line? I know you're more of a lipstick girl, just wondering! Oh, and I've finally tried my Rouge Coco...agree with you, totally. Will do a review soon! xx

  2. Thanks for the link! I love cappuccino, it's so smooth and easy to work with. I really recommed Bellini, the soft peach in my Petit Four palette. The colour is true to the pan and it's so soft and pretty to wear.

  3. Hi Anna,
    I know what you mean about needing a stronger eye with glasses, I do find I use darker colours when I have to wear mine.I don't think I will get any glosses from JH, you know how picky I am don't think I'll find anything that excels Le Metier de beaute or Hourglass.
    Is it wrong that I'm glad that you agree with me about the Chanel rouge coco, I think we are the only ones :)

    Hi Glamoured,
    I've started writing a list of other shades I want so I'll add Bellini to it :)
