How to Use
Rated 3.35 out of 5 stars
I got Red Carpet Premier because it looks like it has really good reds. In reality, the palette is significantly more muted in real life - no bright red, just warm tone browns of varying shades. But, I'm not upset! The colors swatched gorgeously, and I wore them on my eyes for two days. I noticed creasing, but that's been happening with most of my shadows lately (not sure why). Shimmers are gorgeous, mattes are good, it makes for a great starter or travel palette! I love it!
Pros: Easily build-able, Blends well, 4/6 shimmer goes on well
Cons: Not a lot of pigment, 2/6 shimmer doesn't go on well unless you dig your brush in.
I got Red Carpet Premiere, and I was slightly disappointed, the 2 chunkier shimmer that I was looking forward too was hard to apply, the mattes are not as pigmented as higher end brand, but it's buildable and blends out very easily. I took one star for the hard to apply shimmer and another for the mattes.
I would recommend this to other people if they like buildable mattes and mostly nice shimmers.
I would buy the other two because I like how easily the mattes blends out especially for the price.

I purchased this for my daughter's and have to admit, I am making her share it with me. I love the colors. They go on smooth and look vivid and vibrant all day long. I was very impressed and felt that it exceeded my expectations. It's a really good value for the price! Try it. You will love it!!!

I'm definitely not a makeup aficionado, but I really like this palette. Some of the glittery colors aren't super pigmented, but the matte colors are. The glittery colors are easy to build on. I love the yellow and orange colors.

For the price, I wasn't expecting a lot, but I've found myself reaching for this palette again and again. The colors have decent pigment and I haven't had a problem blending. The shimmers are also gorgeous. If you're looking for a copper/orange shimmer I would highly recommend this. The emerald and purple shimmer are beautiful as well. I will be ordering more eyeshadows from this brand.

I got this for free with something I bought and let's just say.. I'm glad I didn't spend a dime on it. The shimmery emerald green color is BEAUTIFUL but barely shows up. Hardly any pigment even with eye primer on. Just wasn't for me. Beautiful colors but falls short when wearing.
Chunky Shimmers from New Jersey
The shimmers in this palette are great !! they are chunky is some of them , but i can get past that i guess . There is a ton of kickback to the matte shades . The packaging is very light and feels cheap , almost like it could easily break .

nm from Denver, CO
The payoff on the shimmer/glitter shades is incredible for the price. Swatching these was like a dream. So smooth. Unsure on the mattes but the other shades make this palette very worth the price.

Kelly from NY
Purchased red carpet, very disappointed.. Matte shades were the only ones that had any pigment, did not blend well or go on easy.. Don't bother with this one.

i bought this for my younger cousin for her summer birthday and she loves it, especially the blue and the green shade.
Jazmine from cleveland, Ohio
Ok this Shadow is awesome, You just have to choose the right color for you among 3 colors or buy all of 3colors!!! Great color pay off. It is so simple and small, so It's too convenient to carry around. Perfect color, Perfect size I love it!

Only half the shades in the brighter palette actually have any pigment at all, its mostly the shimmer shades.
Emily from Iowa
lacks pigment, a lot of fall out.
iluvu from Springfield MA
It is a mixture that can be built. I like it because it is practical and small. It has beautiful colors.
Nikki from NY
Purchased all 3 of these and was highly disappointed. The mattes aren't horrible, but they're not as pigmented as I'd like. And the shimmers are horrible.
iluvu from Springfield, MA

Heather from Madera
This eye shadow palette is amazing they are all pigmented except a few of the glitters but that's okay

I have the stardom and the paparazzi palletes. I am in no way a makeup artist I like a simple two to three color look with good shimmer to make my eyes pop. Most of the mattes in each pallete worked well for me. When I use these I do not set my concealer on my lids. And the shimmers.... are really good. I think these palletes are worth it if you can"t or don't want to buy more expensive makeup, definitely palletes you can just play with I think they are worth it and I've had them sense they launched on the jcat website more then a few months I can say I've learned how to use the shades and I am highly impressed with the shimmers!

These are identical to the cheaper KleanColor Give Em Shade palettes. Try the Bronze by Kleancolor and youll love the pigmentation. I hate the intense powdery smell of all these but yea try Kleancolor Give Em Shade theyre 2.50 bux each.
Jaz from .
The product itself is pretty good... It is a little dusty but it blends easily. 2/6 of the shimmers are more chunky/not as good on the eyes, but overall the shadows are fine. What really got me, WAS THE SCENT. It smells like.... Play doh but maybe even worse. The scent isn't overly strong but you can definitely smell it.

Should've read the reviews before purchasing. No pigment, and chalky af. Disappointed because the colors looked so pretty.

This is probably the worst eyeshadow palette I've ever bought. There is no pigment whatsoever. The shimmers have some but the mattes have nothing.
