Jane Iredale has recently launched their ‘Country Weekend’ collection, which includes their Getaway eyeshadow palette, their Forever Peach Lip and Cheek Stain, and their Espresso eyeliner. Ry.com.au stocks this collection and gave me the opportunity to trial these products.
The Getaway palette (rrp 99 AUD, $84.16 at Ry.com.au) is quite a versatile one that you can throw in your bag knowing that you can use it for light, simple day time looks to dramatic night time smoky eyes. I love how there is a great neutral satin/matte colour (a lot of my palettes miss that critical matte base or crease colour, which means that I need to bring an extra product if I’m travelling.) The eyeshadows in this palette are all decent quality, buttery and easy to blend- and my favourite part is that they LAST FOREVER on my oily lids without fading and creasing!
The Getaway palette consists of 5 shades:
A shimmery white highlight shade: semi sheer and finely milled so it looks great as a highlight shade for the eye area (e.g. inner corner, tear duct, etc) as well as a highlight shade for the face (bridge of nose, cupid’s bow, etc)
A shimmery pale pink shade:very sheer and loses it’s pink-ness when blended on top of other shadows- I don’t tend to use this shade much.
Light brown taupe shade: semi sheer (but buildable) satin. Super silky and blends like a dream. Particularly good as a base shade because it actually increases the wear time and reduces creasing in my other (pretty but poorly performing) eyeshadows
Metallic Copper: moderate to full pigmentation, buttery texture and easy to blend.
Matte charcoal black with gold specks throughout: Very pigmented, you only need the smallest amount on the brush- because it’s quite a soft eyeshadow, you will pick up plenty of product with a light dab on the pan with a brush. Surprisingly easy to blend for a dark matte.

Peach Forever Lip and cheek stain (rrp $58 AU, discounted to $49.30 at Ry.com.au) confused me at first becuase it applied very sheer- lamost clear, and I immediately wondered- how in the world can this be marketed as a ‘stain’? A tinted balm maybe.
But then the colour started developing on my lips after about half a minute, and became a shade of coral that was not there when I first applied the product. I did the same thing on my cheeks, and was startled when my cheeks started taking on a bright corally pink colour afte rI blended what seemed like a clear product on my cheeks. Of curse I over applied initially and ended up looking like a clown- I highly suggest starting off with a small amount of product and then waiting until it ‘develops’ before building up the colour, because it’s hard to guess how much you need.
The best bit about this product is the longevity of the stain on both lips and cheeks for such a relatively light shade. 3hrs on the lips and 5+ hours on the cheeks, most products don’t last that long on my slippery skin.

The one disappointing product in this collection is the Espresso Jelly Jar eyeliner. (rrp $50 AU) It’s described as being like khol, but it is not. It is super sheer and doesn’t build up well on the skin, so it’s virtually invisible on my skin- paler skin tones than mine might do ok with it.
Used in this look:
– light brown shade from Jane Iredale Getaway palette blended all over the upper lid and below bottom lashline. The matte black shade lightly smudged under the bottom lashline and in the outer V.
– Silvery white shade was used in the inner corner and top of the cupid’s bow as a highlight.
– Bobbi Brown Eyeliner in Black Ink on the upper lashline and lower waterline.
– Jane Iredale Forever Peach Lip and Cheek Tint
– Jane Iredale Forever Peach Lip and Cheek Tint
In this next image I just started with the previous look and added the gold copper shade on the top lid and also dabbed on the tear duct area of the bottom lid.
