Born Pretty Store: Holiday Gift Ideas - Love Atti Eye Shadow Palette and Jialin Lip Palette Review

As you probably know by now I love gold eye shadow! It compliments many complexions, can be paired with winged liner for beautiful yet simple looks and is suitable for every season. Today I have a review on new products from Born Pretty, an online beauty store that sells everything from lashes, skin care, tools and makeup.

First up is the Love Atti Palette 03 which contains 8 ultra shimmery shades designed to make eyes pop with vivid color. The first thing that caught my attention was the glistening finish; the shadows sparkle beautifully in light but the glitter is less concentrated under the top layer. The colors have a pretty metallic finish and good pigmentation especially when used with primer.

The texture is quite smooth and applies well with a standard eye shadow brush or sponge applicator. I didn't have any issues with fall-out or creasing and the range of color is decent for lid, crease and highlight.

Along with variations of gold, copper, bronze and silver there is also a deep, rich green and since the palette is only $7.53 it is great for the holiday season and makes a cute gift!

The packaging is not high-end or fancy but it does come with a small mirror and one applicator, it also fastens rather securely for travel. This is a nice little palette for creating simple looks and for beginners- you can find it by clicking HERE.

If you need some ravishing lip color to go with those fetching shadows the Jialin Lipstick Palette has a great range of shades. With 32 round color slots this palette provides many options from deep reds, plums, purple, pink, nude and even gold. For the coming season I like the deep berry hues and the rich burgundy. The texture is very soft, smooth and creamy.

The lipsticks have a gloss texture with high shine yet the pigmentation is good. The palette also contains different finishes, some offer medium to full coverage while others offer sheer coverage and a metallic sheen with illuminating shimmer. The minty blues, violet and yellow may not get much wear but I do like the majority of shades and they are easy to apply with a finger or brush. The colors glide on and melt in nicely for non-drying, comfortable wear.

If the palette in my photos appear a bit used it is because the lipsticks were smudged during shipping. The colors sit in a plastic shell that is very light and not glued to the outer casing, you do however have the option of removing the tray and re-potting them in another case.

The label on the palette suggests that you can also use the lip colors for blush and eye shadow but I think they are too glossy for that. Although I would have preferred more durable packaging, for $6.99 this is actually a pretty good deal. It is suitable for all seasons and gives you the chance to play around with some bright hues. You can find the lip palette by clicking HERE.

If you are looking for some cute holiday stocking stuffers Born Pretty has a variety of affordable products. The flat top kabuki brush for just over $7.00 is good for applying liquid makeup or blush and they have a nice range of cosmetic mirrors for just $5.87.

After my trip to Paris I love all the Eiffel Tower memorabilia and this cute mirror is great for use on the go.
