Party season has arrived, and celebrations abound. With so many different events to attend, I want to look fresh, festive, and fabulous. Helping to add some glam to my holiday makeup looks is the Happy Together Collection from Jane Iredale.
Jane Iredale Happy Together Collection
As a huge supporter of this cruelty-free, clean beauty brand, I’m always excited to try new Jane Iredale products. I absolutely adore the festive fairies, fluttering butterflies and sparkling snow themed packaging of this holiday collection.
The Happy Together Limited Edition Collection includes the Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit, Dance with Me Refillable Compact, Kiss and Tell Lip Stain/Gloss Kit, and Butterfly Bag. All of the products are vegan and gluten-free. The brand was kind enough to send the compact, palette and lip kit to review.
Although I don’t have the Butterfly Bag, I did want to mention that a portion of the sales from this bag benefits SaveOurMonarchs. This non-profit is dedicated to saving the endangered monarch butterflies.
Holiday Makeup – Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit
When I’m creating my holiday eye looks, I like to play with a little bit of shimmer and color. The Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit lets me do both. The palette features five shimmery Jane Iredale PurePressed shadows, including:
- Spree – pale pink with subtle shimmer
- Wing-ding – plum with subtle shimmer
- Soiree – royal blue with subtle shimmer
- Shindig – shimmery jade green
- Hootenanny – shimmer chocolate brown
With names like Hootenanny and Wing-ding, it’s hard not to love this beautifully packaged palette. It’s also hard not to like the variety of colors in the palette. The pop of green and blue are pure fun and pair very well with the pink, brown and purple shadows. In addition to the shade options, the shadows are pigmented, long-lasting and crease resistant. They also contain botanical extracts that soothe and nurture skin. This is ideal for mature lids that can often look crepey.
I had so much fun testing out this palette. I really love the holiday makeup looks I created, from the icy pink with a blue accent to the smoky green and chocolate.
Jane Iredale Refillable Compact
One of the most unique aspects of this holiday makeup collection is the Dance with Me refillable compact. I love the fluttery butterflies on the cover. It makes for such a nice gift. Since I already have one of these compacts, I’m going to pass this one on to my niece who’s a butterfly fan.
This compact is designed to hold refills of Jane Iredale bronzers, powders or foundations. I use mine to hold my Warm Peachy Pink Bronzer refill. It’s the perfect on-the-go blush, bronzer, highlighter compact that I can use on my face or eyes.
Kiss and Tell Lip Stain/Gloss Kit
This adorable little set features two lip stains and a shimmer gloss for all your holiday makeup needs.
- Craving – light salmon stain
- Fascination – rosy pink stain
- Crystal – clear shimmer
Though I’ve tried lipsticks from Jane Iredale, I had yet to try her stains or glosses. As with everything from the brand, I’m impressed. The stains not only condition and protect my lips but also don’t feather or move.Once you apply Craving or Fascination your good to mingle from event to event.
As I mentioned above, there is also a lovely clear, shimmery gloss. You can wear Crystal alone or pair it with the stains. I really like the way the gloss looks with the stains. It adds a little something-something to any lip look. The formula is conditioning, non-tacky, and doesn’t feature any petroleum. Essentially, it’s a gloss that’s also good for your lips so it won’t interfere with all that holiday eating and drinking.
With the Jane Iredale Happy Together Collection, you’ll party hop your way to fabulous holiday makeup looks all season long.
