Jemma Kidd for Target

It’s Review Time!

This week’s review is a little off the regular path. This one is more a selection of a line of products, than it is a single product. I guess that’s pretty similar to what I’ve done before too then, huh?


What it is:

This is a cosmetics brand from makeup artist Jemma Kidd. This is a limited edition collaboration with Target, as the rest of her name brand is sold in Bergdorf Goodman, & several Neiman Marcus stores.

There is an extensive line of products, but I only bought the an eyeshadow duo and a gloss lipstick. Both of these are $18 each, and can be found here. Also make sure to click on the link to see the video with Jemma. I tried to embed it but they didn’t have a link.

Review (5 highest, 1 lowest):

Packaging: 4 out of 5 (the e/s is nothing special – but the lipsticks are very cute)

Price: 3.5 out of 5 ($18 for the E/S duo & the Lipstick)

Quality: 3.5 out of 5 for the e/s and 4 out of 5 for the lipstick

Overall: barely 4 out of 5 (b/c the lipstick was good)

The product(s):

The swatches:
E/S Duo in Chic
Sheer Vanity Gloss & Glaze Lipstick in A la Mode

The lipstick is really creamy and has a great gloss to it.


Verdict:
So this one was pretty simple. First, I didn’t do a look because these are simple and average colors. Also, the pigmentation, the finish, and the quality of the eyeshadow is the same as well. Simple. Nothing special.

The package is sweet and petite, and reminds me a little of Almay and other products with initials embossed in the powder. For this price, I wouldn’t recommend it, because it does nothing to beat out cheaper competition.

The lipstick however, not only has the cutest packaging with flower illustrations, but it is also super creamy, has a very high gloss factor for a lipstick format (there are not many with that – thus my lip gloss obsession), and the color is discreet but definitely original and great looking.

I would recommend you shell out the bucks for the lippie but not the e/s.

How about you? Ever tried this brand?

Disagree with me?

Lemme hear it!

  1. I saw the Jemma Kidd line when I was in Seattle last week in a Target and I thought to myself, is this the same Jemma Kidd in our upscale dept store? Thanks for the review, I'm going back up to Seattle at the end of the week so I'll have to go check it out!

  2. I think her makeup line is pretty pricey for Target. Also, im not a big fan of the packaging. The big JK kinda throws me off. I would like to try them though.
