Viola

JD Glow Viola Shimmer Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and a pink-to-violet shifting finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was more prone to sheering out. The consistency was soft, blendable but slightly powdery and thinner than most of the brand’s eyeshadows. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$7.50/0.095 oz. - $78.95 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "highly pigmented" with a "built in primer." The texture was creamier, smooth, and more emollient without being too thick or too firmly pressed into the pan, so while it was denser and not at all powdery, I had no trouble picking up product with a dry brush. Using a wet brush or fingertip to apply helped to minimize slight to light fallout that was more typical with dry brush application.

The pigmentation was semi-opaque to opaque with good adhesion to bare skin, and the powders blended out well along the edges. Some of the more sparkly shades had light fallout when blended or the sparkles dispersed a bit more readily, so precision placement was harder. They wore between eight and nine hours on me before fading or lightly creasing.

The one thing to note, though, is that they had a heavy, sweet, fruity scent that I could detect periodically through the day. The empty palette I placed all of the eyeshadows in practically bursts with scent when I open.

Sky

JD Glow Sky Shimmer Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It was less metallic than most of the brand’s shimmer eyeshadows. The texture was soft, slightly powdery, and a touch thicker, but it applied evenly and blended out well while still yielding mostly opaque coverage. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

JD Glow Meringue Shimmer Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a soft yellow with subtle, warm undertones and flashes of peach shimmer throughout a metallic finish. The texture was soft, lightly creamy, and blendable while having opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Jade

JD Glow Jade Shimmer Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a very light, aqua base with shimmer that shifted from warmer gold to soft green paired with a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t quite as emollient as most of the brand’s shimmers (though certainly not dry or powdery!). It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Rose Goals

JD Glow Rose Goals Metallon Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light-medium bronze with strong, warm undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. The texture was smooth, almost cream-like, without being overly dense, so it picked up well with a dry brush and applied evenly to bare skin. It was richly pigmented and started to crease visibly after eight hours of wear.

Blue Avenue

JD Glow Blue Avenue Metallon Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with moderate, cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was more emollient, lightly creamy, and slightly thick, so it applied best by pressing and pushing it into place or by using a fingertip. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours before creasing faintly.

I hope no one falls in love with Viola or Jade because they already look to be discontinued. However, I can vouch for how gorgeous Sky is on the eyes, and it’s still available!

Aren’t these just gorgeous shades? I don’t normally like pastel hues, but the metallic finish on these makes them so pretty. Rose Goals is my favourite, although I do have quite a few dupes….

I must say I find all of these pretty. I also have to say my purchase of BH Foil Eyes 1 and 2 wasn’t a bad purchase, the palettes seem to have quite a lot of good dupes in them, and they are still nice to work with.
Out of the reviewed shades in this post I like Jade the best, Sky is a beauty and I wish Viola had been a bit better. But as I said, BH.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
