Nabla Cosmetics *NEW* Poison Garden Eyeshadow Palette | Try On & First Impressions | JkissaMakeup


Hi everyone. What is up? Welcome back to my channel. If this is your first time to my channel,
hi, my name is Jkissa and I love film photography. I know that is such a hipster, Millennial
thing of me to say, but I just have so much fun with it recently, and so today … now
that we have that out of the way, today I wanted to do a tutorial on this look right
here. Kind of first impressions, try on of the Nabla
Poison Garden palette. Nabla did send this my way. If you are unfamiliar with Nabla, they are
an amazing indie brand based out of Italy and I absolutely adore them. Nabla has had my heart from the beginning,
and I just think the formulas of their products are amazing. So this is what the palette looks like, and
this is the look I came up with. I am excited about the color story, I can
tell you that much, but I don’t want to spoil too much more. So if you like these kinds of videos, please
give it a thumbs up and don’t forget to subscribe because it would mean so much to me. And I hope you enjoy this video. Let’s go ahead and jump into it. I went ahead and primed my eyes and set it
with a matte powder closer to my skin tone. I don’t know what I’m going to do for this
look. Oh, there are so many options. I think I’m going to start off with Berry
Bite, and I’m going to build this into the inner portion of the eye, and I want to start
off very slow. The pigmentation so far seems really, really
great. Berry Bite is described as a bright berry
in a super matte finish, and I’m trying to work and be patient here. I feel like a lot of times, I’ve talked about
this before, I just want to really get it on there and get it blended, but I’m really
trying to work on my patience as much as I can lately. I need to put my patient pants and, you know,
sometimes it’s a little hard. Also, I’m really sorry if this goes in and
out of focus. I am a one man band, and I thought, you know
what, let’s try to zoom in a little bit. And so if it goes in and out of focus, that
is why. I’m going to use a clean blending brush to
just diffuse those edges even more. Okay, so now that we have that laid down in
the outer portion of the eye, I wanted to take Majorelle. It’s a Majorelle blue in a super matte finish. I hope I’m pronouncing that right. Probably not. Same thing here, I’m going to start very slowly
and work to blend and build this up, so if you are heavy-handed, I can definitely be
heavy-handed sometimes. I’m really trying to just barely touch the
skin with the brush, and holding my hand at the end of the brush as well. And eventually I do want that blue and pink
to meet up, so I’m working my way to meeting those up. Then once they do, we can go back and forth,
really make sure they are blended together. I’m taking a little bit more time blending
this blue shade, and I don’t know if that’s because it’s just not wanting to blend, or
what’s going on. Dipping into … I’m going to mix Canvas and
Narrative. Just really lightly, to blend that blue out
even more. Now I’m going to dot that blue into the crease
to hopefully build up some pigmentation, and then go in with circular motions. And you can be a little bit more heavy-handed
here since we do have the preliminary portion of blue blended out. This blue is not a fave of mine. I feel like it blends to be gray once you
start blending it out. That’s like one of my biggest pet peeves when
it comes to blue eyeshadow, so that’s just me personally. Let’s deepen up the outer corner a little
bit with the shade Zodiac. It’s described as a deep midnight blue in
a super matte finish. So I want to build this right onto the outer
portion. At first, I’m just stamping this on, and then
we can go in and blend it. Just patting around the edges to help blend
out that edge. And if this outer edge gets a little funky,
we can go in and clean it up, which is kind of like my saving grace for everything I do. I’m like, let me just not worry about this
outer corner and I can clean it up later with a makeup wipe. I dipped back into Majorelle and just started
building the outer portion up a little bit more, blending it out. Moving on to the lid now, I’m taking the shade
Craving, which is described as a duochrome amethyst with fuchsia and peach reflects,
which is a fluid metal. That looks really pretty. So I personally like to apply shimmers with
my finger. If you prefer to use a brush, feel free to
do that. I’m going to place this onto the center of
the lid. Nabla has such amazing freaking shimmer shades,
like their shimmers blow me out of the water every time. They’re just so pretty. On the inner portion, I don’t know what I
want to do. Do I want to do Fabric? That could be really pretty. I might do that. I’m taking the shade Fabric, which is described
as a light sandy champagne in a fluid metal formula. Oh, heck, yeah. That shade is so gorgeous. What the heck. I feel like I’m going to get a lot of Harley
Quinn comments from this look, but that’s fine. Oh, my gosh, that shade is to die for. Holy crap. And then I know they have a shade called Adoration,
which is a wet effect top coat with cobalt, indigo and magenta reflects. This is supposed to be a little thing you
just tap on top, which is what I’m going to do all over the shimmers. Just place it right over top to add more reflect
to it. I think that did add some to it. You can really build this up if you want,
as well. I like the way this is turning out. Before I move on to concealer, I just quickly
wanted to show you what I mean by cleaning everything up. So I’m going to start at the outer portion
of the eye and just go right up. Now that we have this cleaned up, I’m quickly
going to go ahead and do my concealer, and then we will move on to the lower lash line. Okay, I cannot stop staring at this look. Like, I love it so much, I’m really stoked
on how this has turned out so far. And actually, that Majorelle color did actually
work out and really worked with this look. So now I’m like, how do I finish this look
without ruining it? I don’t know how I’m going to do that, but
we’re going to try. I don’t know what I want to do on the lower
lash line. I don’t know if I want to just match the Berry
and then the Majorelle blue out here, or do I want to … I don’t really know. I know I need to use more colors because I
haven’t used that many in here, so maybe I’ll just try to do that. Let’s start off … oh, gosh. This is a gamble and a half. Let’s start off with the shade Zen, which
is described as a medium-light rosy nude in a super matte finish. And because I took a long time with my upper
eye area, I want to do the same thing. I want to really focus on blending these out. I really want to make sure I’m taking my time
here, again, because I took my time in the upper eye area. And, you know, I just want to do the same
on the lower lash. Now I’m taking Berry Bite and going to blend
this all over. Lower lash line area once again. One final matte shade on the lower lash line
is going to be the shade Opera, is described as a wine-red in a super matte finish. And I like to use flat brushes like this when
I’m going to do something that is very close to the lower lash line, and then I really
… sorry, I know this is going to be hard to see, tilt my head. And I just go right as close as I can get
it. Great, now my eyes are watering ’cause I just
sneezed. But as you can see, without my eye watering
right there, it just creates a really nice gradient onto the eye area, blending into
that pink. Okay, in our corner now, I want to take the
shade Adoration. Again, which you are supposed to apply with
your finger, but okay. We’re doing okay. Oh, that’s a really gorgeous inner corner
highlight. Oh, yes. Love this shade. On the water line, I am taking alkaline pencil
from Urban Decay. One of my favorite pencils, this actually
lives in my makeup bag. This is just so good. Okay, so now I’m going to go do the rest of
my face and I’ll be back to show you the final look and give you my final thoughts. Okay everyone, here is the finished look. I have decided to pair this with a bold berry
lip. I used the Dose of Colors in Disney Infinite
… I almost said liquid lipstick. And I really like the way this look turned
out. I am absolutely obsessed with it, and so let’s
talk about the palette. I didn’t use all the shades. That would have been like, a lot. I love this palette. It reminds me a lot of the dreamy palette
that I love so much. Why is the name escaping me? Probably because I haven’t eaten today. But I do love that palette, and this palette
is the same quality. It’s just really good. Despite Majorelle blending a little bit dark,
I think that it really works with this look. I think Poison Garden and Dreamy are my two
favorite from Nabla. Dreamy is just such a good every day palette
that you can take with you traveling, and then Poison Garden can be kind of like its
step-sister, that you can deepen up everything with, and I just love the color story. I, however, do wish there were more deep greens,
maybe like a deep shimmery green and a deep matte green. I think that would have played off the berries
and the blues really nicely. And when you think of a garden, you do think
of greenery, so I think that would have added to this palette a lot. However, with that being said, I really do
like this palette. The other Soul Blooming palette was not a
favorite of mine. I actually thought the formula was a little
bit more different than this one and this one, so I am so happy to have another palette
that I really like from Nabla. I felt bad when I didn’t like the Soul Blooming
palette. I felt really bad, ’cause I love Nabla so
much. But this palette is really great and I’m excited
to keep using it. So if there are other looks you would like
me to do with this palette, please let me know down in the comment section below. Do not forget to … why am I still holding
this? Don’t forget to subscribe before you head
out, and I’ll see you next time. Bye.
