Jazzy is a frosty violet that flashes pink. It is similar to MAC Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow, only a bit frostier. The texture is slightly chalky but pigmentation is decent and very buildable.

Truffle is a shimmery bronze gold just like my favorite, now-discontinued Jane Magical Mushroom eyeshadow. It has a really chunky texture (think MAC Kitschmas pigment chunky) that does require a bit of layering and blending to get smooth, even color.

Lava is a dark olive green with very fine gold shimmer. It has the most buttery texture out of the three and applies with great pigmentation.

Overall, these are some really gorgeous, wearable colors that I can’t wait to wear for fall. However, their textures do seem to vary a lot by color. I would recommend using a primer underneath and a dense eyeshadow brush like MAC #239 for application.
