JN Beauty are a small British brand of make-up, of which I was recently sent a few items. My favourite is this fabulous five-pan eyeshadow palette in Plum Crazy – one of four different shade variants with the others being Diamonds Darling (greys), Green Eyed Lady (spring shades of emerald and lilac) and Stars in Your Eyes which are brown/bronze shades.
I was extremely happy to receive the Plum Crazy palette as I absolutely love plum shades, so I was very pleased to have a five-pan set of plums! The shades included in Plum Crazy give you everything you need for a good, deep smokey eye, but I tend to use them individually depending on what look I’m going for. The colours are intensely pigmented and there’s very little fall out which makes them very good value for money.
Out of the five shades, I’d say my favourites are the palest two which are great everyday shades if you fancy trying something different to brown. The three darker shades work well as liner colours (especially if black is too dramatic for the look you’re going for) but they can also be used for drama as an all over colour as they blend well and don’t go streaky.
If you have blue eyes then this is a great palette to invest in as the shades are perfect for bringing out blue tones. However, as there’s nothing too bright in the palette I don’t think there would be many skin/eye colours that these shades wouldn’t work with making this a very versatile palette with great shades and lovely formulas. As is usually the case with these sort of palettes the included brushes are absolutely rubbish, but apart from that, I highly recommend these palettes.
