The Jackie Aina palette

The Jackie Aina palette shook the beauty world, especially for black women and women of colour, by storm in the last couple of months. I’ve been on a no-buying makeup stance for 2019 but when I heard about this baby, I knew I had to get it.

Where to buy it
I’ve never hunted down a product so much in my life! I initially asked a friend who was traveling overseas to buy it for me – that didn’t work because the palette wasn’t yet stock in Sephora Singapore when she was there. I then wanted to buy it from Cult Beauty to take advantage of the free shipping, however they took sooo long to stock the palette so I gave up on that. I eventually bought it from Muse Beauty – they had it in stock (I picked it up at their store in Morningside) and the price (R1100) was comparable to what I would’ve paid on Cult Beauty + custom fees.

The palette
You have probably seen this palette a million times on social media and it won’t hurt to see it once more on here. The palette is dark skin friendly because Jackie herself is a dark skinned woman and she wanted create a palette where she could use every shade. There are 6 matte shades, 6 metallic shades and 2 sparkling shades. This is the first Anastasia Beverly Hills palette that I have bought, I knew their quality was top notch and Jackie’s palette did not disappoint me.

Of course you are here for the looks that I have created with this palette. I don’t know why but everytime I open it I get drawn to the purple shades! I love that it totally works for dramatic looks and also for lowkey work looks which I usually rock.

    I’m loving this palette! Unlike you, I find myself leaning more you the greens and browns (the natural basic b**ch in me won’t let up).Besides purely wanting to support Jackie, the palette is truly a must-have.That Shookington lewk looks gorgeous on you!

      lol at natural basic b**ch! I haven’t even touched Sponsored, Lituation and Trust Issues yet – the pinks and purples are drawing me in so much more.
