Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan EyeShadow Palette 2

The Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette is quite a beauty budget pick at mere $3.99 each. And I actually reviewed one of these not so long ago in a land far, far away…and felt like the formula wasn’t TOO bad.

Recently, I was picking things out of my to be reviewed pile and realized I also had the Tickled Pink version of the Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette which I hadn’t yet reviewed.

Unfortunately, my original experience with the shadow was so so, not bad but with Tickle Pink things went a little down hill!

If you’re one for saving money on your beauty purchases or you’re just starved for a deal I did find that the green selection in this palette was ok and not too bad. However, I’d avoid the Tickled Pink variation which I’m reviewing today.

These palettes have nine shadows each in a graduating color scheme that range from purples, pinks, to cranberries. All the shades go very well together so it isn’t some oddball mix of shadows that don’t match up well!

The palette is Made in China so if you avoid products from China you might want to skip out here.

These are quite chalky, apply patchy, and have a generally drier, powdery texture that fades easily once applied. A cream base of some sort under them might make the workable but on their own they have a terrible texture. You can possibly dampen them as well which might make them apply easier. They are very sheer with little pigment however, some of the darker cranberries apply with better pigmentation. I find they fade and slip off within an hour of wear. There’s very little drama and intensity to begin with and after a little while you’ll find the color fades away almost totally. The other palette I tried actually wore well without fading or creasing so I guess it’s just a matter of inconsistency.

I find packaging very important and who doesn’t love a gorgeous compact or eyeshadow palette? Unfortunately, this is made from very flimsy packaging but what do you expect for $3.99?

If you are indulging I’d recommend exploring other shades as the Tickled Pink Palette wasn’t a great experience for me and truly isn’t even worth the $3.99 I paid for it.


Skip it.

Anyone own any of these 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palettes?

    I bought one of these last year its was a green/brown palette. I’m sorry but I love it! The darker shadows are quite pigmented and with a primer it lasts all day. I agree the packaging is terrible, I broke off the cover. I think there is better drugstore choices for eyeshadow but I have been happy with mine.

      I have that one too Lisa and liked it 😀 unfortunately this one wasn’t as nice!

  • Blee

    Wow, that’s a shame! The colors are nice. And IF they were made not in china and had a better color stay, I, well, maybe may have given it a go. But those are some really nice colors 😀

    Everything I’ve ever tried from this brand over the years has been terrible. I gave up on them a long time ago. Wish Rite Aid would clear this rubbish out to make room for another line!

    A product preceding Marc Jacob’s eyeshadow palettes, hey? 🙂
