BECCA

X Jaclyn Hill Eye Shadow Palette $40

.

Sooooooooooooo…  There are many things that go through ones mind as they reflect on the circumstances of the BECCA ‘X Jaclyn Hill’ Eye Shadow Palette.  Let us start with the contriversy…  To make a long story short BECCA along with Jaclyn Hill decided to release an eye shadow palette.  And 70% of the shadows turned out to be ‘bad’ according to many customers, BECCA and Jaclyn Hill herself.  BECCA and Hill didn’t say much about how quality control slipped through the cracks.  Nor did the cosmetic company BECCA or Hill take much responsibility other than saying it was all the labs fault.  The investment of time and money it takes to release a makeup palette should not be ignored and was surely an motivating factor.  It’s not cheap to advertise, create colors, make pretty packaging and hire Hill to represent a brand.  I’m sure there was a pretty price JH asked for letting BECCA have the pleasure of plastering her face all over their advertising campaign.  Could it be the lab was too rushed to do a quality job?  Was BECCA too rushed to do a proper quality control to stop the shadows beforehand from hitting the market?  Were BECCA and Hill hoping no one would notice the poor shadow quality?  Will this hurt the Jaclyn Hill makeup brand to be released in 2017?  Ahhh…  Many questions to ponder but no answers.

Onto more important things…  Are the colors of the BECCA eye shadow palette so special that no other makeup company can come close?  I think not.  Lets take a close look at the palette colors and see what drugstore colors come close.  *Please note* The following are only suggestions and not exact dupes.
