Review : Jemma Kidd Crushed Jewel Crème Duo

Review : Jemma Kidd Crushed Jewel Crème Duo

Today I am going to bring to you the final review of the products that I was kindly sent by Cheap Smells, the Jemma Kidd Crushed Jewel Creme Duo in shade 01, Lolite. This is part of Jemma’s make up school range and comes with a complete set of instructions.

The instructions are very clear and easy to follow and also provide little tips, such as using the crème as an eyeliner as well as an all over eyeshadow.

The packaging is gorgeous, I love the hot pink lid. The crème sits on top of the glitter and easily twists off.

The crème applies really nicely, I prefer to apply it with my fingers but you can apply it however you like. The first swatch is one swipe, the second photo is built up quite a bit, as you can see this is quite versatile and can be built up for a very dramatic look. (sorry about the quality of the second photo, the original photo mysteriously disappeared and its now dark which equals rubbish photos.)

You apply the glitter over the crème base to create this look. Again, the glitter can also be built up for a more dramatic look.

This is a lovely product, but, unfortunately for me it isn’t without its flaws. I found that when I applied the glitter some of the crème rubbed off. I’m also way too messy to be allowed glitter like this, I had glitter literally everywhere after applying this, but then I am clumsy.

This aside I will persist with this as the product is lovely and you can create a really nice look with it.

You can buy Jemma Kidd’s Crushed Jewel Crème Duo from Cheap Smells for £5.99 with free UK postage.

Have you tried any products from Jemma Kidd’s Make Up School? Are you a fan of loose glitter?

    I really am too messy to be trusted with loose glitter, but I can't resist trying it 'just once more' to see if I don't make such a mess! x
