Princess Jasmine

MAC Princess Jasmine Eyeshadow x 9 Palette ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition neutral palette with a slightly pink/plum leaning. It was a mixed bag–some shades were nice, some were so-so, and one shade (Princess Jasmine) was pure disappointment. I thought it was a decent mix of finishes, depths, and tones for a wearable set of shades, though for those with more robust stashes, it is unlikely to cover new territory.

Riffraff

Riffraff is a light brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable. There was a touch of powderiness in the pan, but I didn’t notice it during application. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours on me before it started to fade visibly on me.

Rags to Riches

Rags to Riches is a pale, peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but it was blendable and easy enough to work with. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before it showed signs of fading.

No Ordinary Lamp

No Ordinary Lamp is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a silky, finely-milled consistency that was somewhat powdery in the pan, but it applied with good pigmentation and didn’t sheer out too readily (but was blendable along the edges). This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly on my lid.

Princess Jasmine

Princess Jasmine is a medium, reddened-plum with cooler, blue-to-teal shifting sparkle. It had sheer coverage that could only be built up by using it with a wet brush. The texture was drier, loose, and more textured–not quite gritty–and had tons of fallout during application. It lasted for six hours on me but had fallout during wear.

Agrabah

Agrabah is a light mauve with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that felt more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was a bit of fallout when I worked with it on bare skin. It wore nicely for eight hours before I noticed any fading on me.

Abu

Abu is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a firmer, denser consistency that needed to be used with a heavier hand to pick up product evenly. The eyeshadow adhered well to my skin and blended out without difficulty. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Creative Copper

Creative Copper is a medium gold with warm undertones and a glittery finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (though Lustres are supposed to be sheerer) with a firmer, stiffer consistency that worked best with a heavier hand in order to pick up product evenly on a brush. There was a bit of fallout during application, though it wasn’t too noticeable. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me but had slight fallout over time.

Live the Genie Life

Live the Genie Life is a pale pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, drier to the touch, and prone to fallout during application. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Shadowy Lady

Shadowy Lady is a deep purple with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to full coverage with two layers. The texture was drier, thinner, and more firmly-pressed in the pan, so it did take a bit of extra effort to apply and even out the application. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Not bad. However, I feel that MAC missed out on making it an epic little palette. Princess Jasmine only works foiled with a mixing medium or fixitive of some sort. The only vloggers I’ve seen use this shade with any success at all, used it foiled. So, that shade right there had major room for improvement. And, I 100% feel like this palette really needs a deep turquoise shade to bring it to life and make it feel like Aladdin!

Given the litany of blue/brown eyeshadows available now, there is really no excuse or room in the market for a dismal one like Princess Jasmine. Extra shame for the worst shade being the namesake!

This is not a stellar effort by MAC and it’s disappointing that the hero shade, Princess Jasmine is so poor. All the shimmery shades had a bit (or a lot) of fall out. I loved the phrase, ‘those with robust stashes’, which is most of us here on your blog, definitely do find these shades living in our varied palettes.

What a shame that they couldn’t do a better job on Princess Jasmine….I mean, seriously – PRINCESS JASMINE is “it” for lots of women who watched the Robin Williams/animated version! I love the name “Live the Genie Life” and might have bought this palette for that name alone, if the majority of the colours had been ones that suited me better.

i know where are all the Kajal Liners at? When I think of Persia that’s all I think about! They could’ve kept this Palette and lauched a bunch of kajal liners in beautiful jewel colors just like at the begining of 2018 and the collection would’ve slayed!

I really love your earrings. Again. Would have been so nice to have them listed in looks as well. šŸ™‚
Anyway, I kinda like the palette, but not as a part of Aladdin themed collection.

You’re always welcome to ask! They are from Kate Spade, limited edition / not available currently.

The actual makeup look and all products listed in the look are listed in the beauty product database, which only includes, you guessed it, beauty products! It is part of an automated system in order to make it so you can look up looks by product and be able to pull in the product images, formula names, etc. in a standardized way! šŸ™‚

Christine, I am completely jealous of your application skills. Your eyeshadow looks are amazing and so well blended. You make an okay palette look supreme.
