JD Glow A Lot & Urgent Pressed Multichromes Reviews & Swatches

A Lot

JD Glow A Lot Pressed Multichrome ($15.00 for 0.095 oz.) has a black base with multichromatic shimmer that shifted between cooler purple to warmer purple to deep pink to copper to vivid coppery-orange paired with a metallic finish. It had a strong, visible shift that was easily detected on the eye.

The texture was moderately dense, smooth, and slightly firmer in the pan compared to other shades in the range, though it applied well with a fingertip (the recommended application method). For use with a brush, you’ll need to dampen it to work with this shade due to the texture. It had rich color payoff that showed signs of creasing after eight hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$15.00/0.095 oz. - $157.89 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "highly pigmented" with a "finely-milled" and "velvety" feel that the brand recommends applying with fingertips. The texture ranged from more densely-packed into the pan to more emollient, almost flaky while still having slip to it.

They were intensely pigmented and very high-shine. The eyeshadows were best applied using a fingertip to press and smooth it on, though I found a dampened brush was pretty easy to use as well (for those wanting more precision). The edges were blendable, but it was easier to use a separate matte eyeshadow to really diffuse and blow out the edge. They lasted between eight and nine hours before creasing visibly on me.

Urgent

JD Glow Urgent Pressed Multichrome ($15.00 for 0.095 oz.) has a blackened base with multichromatic shimmer that shifted between burgundy to raspberry pink to bronze to copper to bright gold paired with a metallic finish.

The texture was smooth, creamy, and moderately dense–a little thick but still workable with a dry brush, though fingertips definitely resulted in the smoothest application with the least effort (which was how the brand recommended to apply it). It was intensely pigmented in a single layer, so a little went a long way. This shade lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly.

These are spectacular! My favorite of the two is definitely A Lot. Man oh man, is that baby shifty! I would probably just wear it with my usual browbone shade and a rich fuchsia in my crease to give it a transition.

I’m seeing “Alot” as one word on the back of the eye shadow and on the website. For some reason I find that deeply distressing 😀

This is one stunner! But as woman of a ‘certain age’ (over 50), with salt & pepper hair, would I use it? It just seems so fun!
This is an eyeshadow, rather than a pigment, right?

I wore No Way on my eyes as an all over lid shade yesterday (not my favorite way to wear them, I’ve discovered) !!!! I was actually wondering yesterday if you had done swatches and reviews because I was VERY curious to know your opinion and if it matches with mine!!

I feel your pain! Like less than 1/8 inch of motile lid shows on me.
And I was wondering what would happen if I put this is in a clear nail polish…I like the way you think!

I’m shocked that these performed so well for you Christine. Idk if I’m applying incorrectly or if my eyelid is just too small, but I use a sticky primer, then a mixing medium and a dense brush to apply to my whole eyelid and all I got was a dark bruise looking mess!

I have small, deep set AND hooded eyes so I always struggle with making my makeup show up, but all that came through on me was black.:(

Could it be possible that you’re blending it too much? I don’t know that you need a sticky primer and a mixing medium with it! I’d try using it drier and just patted into place, only blending edges!

I don’t think you’re supposed to use a mixing medium for the pressed shadow, just on the loose pigment if you purchase that. For me, using NYX glitter glue first on my lid, then using my finger to “stamp down” the pressed shadow onto my lid gives me incredible results! Since the black base seems to be showing through, I think you just need more pigment, and a warm finger will pick it up better than a brush.
