This is the kind of collection I feel like I’ve been waiting years for. MAC cosmetics is how I got interested in makeup back in high school. I always thought they were cutting edge. The Jeremy Scott collections reminds me of that, at least with the packaging. It comes with an eye shadow pallet with 29 shades, a lip palette with 8 shades, and a cheek palette with a blush, bronzer, and highlighter. Without further ado, let’s dig into these three products.
First off, can we just admire how beautiful this packing is? We have been going through a major 80’s and 90’s nostalgia trend and this boombox packaging fits it perfectly. Once you open it up you see the gorgeous layout of the shadows and the amazing high shine finish. It also has a huge mirror on the other side. My only issue with the packaging, and this could just be that mine was damaged in shipping, is that it won’t actually stay open on its own. That makes working with it a little difficult.
Now, for the shadows themselves. There is a nice range of not only colors but also finishes. It’s super easy to create a complete eye look with this. I’ve done about four different looks so far. The shadows are mostly easy to use and build-able. I did have a harder time with one of the mattes. Overall though I think the shadows are great.
The biggest issue, however, is the pan size and shape. While of course making it look cool is always a plus on the selling point side, its not practical for use. It actually takes some work to get a brush in there with enough product to work. This means dipping the brush in a lot to build a look and makes it more time consuming. It also causes a lot of fallout around the pans and the palette quickly becomes messy looking.

This lip palette is amazing! First of all it looks like an old mix tape. As someone that grew up making mix tapes this just punches in more of that nostalgia. Plus if you look closely, it looks like the tape is inside the boombox. The side is similar to the eye shadow palette with the design placement of the lip pans and the high shine finish. It also has a mirror.
The product isn’t too soft like some lip palettes can be and I love that. There is a variety of colors that can be used on their own or together. They blend nice and are durable. They won’t last you all day but you will get a few hours out of them.

Moving a little further in time, we have a blank CD! Of course since I made mix tapes it was only natural that I transitioned to CD’s as well. This collection just brings up so many memories. The inside of the palette looks the same as the others with the pan shape and high shine material. Similar to the eye palette, this one is a little hard to use depend on your brush preference.
These three colors work great for me. However, I have very fair skin. I believe they’d work well up to a medium tone but after that there’s no way that the bronzer will work. I would have really liked to see two of these come out with deeper skin tones in mind.
- Heaven In Your Smile: Pale frosty highlight (Frost)
- Acoustica: Warm brown (Matte)
- Wall of Desire: Midtone pink (Satin)
Over all I think this is a fun collection that I can see myself going back to often when I want to create some new looks. It’s also perfect to take with you on a trip.
Overall, I really love this collection. It's got a variety of colors and products. My main issues is the eye shadow pan sizes are awkward and too narrow for most brushes. The face palette won't work well on deeper skin tones. Other than that it's a great collection to have.
