First of all, this packaging is Heart to a ‘T’! She’s very girly and feminine and this totally represents who she is.
When you open it up, you see a heart shaped mirror and xoxo, Heart down at the bottom. Love the personalized touches!
So with this palette, you’re getting 8 shadows, a bronzer / highlight combo & a really pretty baby doll pink blush. I love how she decided to throw in a few bright Spring colors along with everyday neutrals.
So how does it perform? Well.. in my opinion just okay. The shadows are a bit stiff and don’t have very much color pigmentation. A few of them were powdery & chalky and just didn’t swatch well. I really was hoping the gorgeous blues were going to blow me away, but they didn’t. Using an eye primer with this palette is definitely key.
But if you ask me about the bronzer, highlight & blush I’m going to have a different answer for you. They worked out SO much better than the shadows. The highlight was a bit powdery, but it’s still really gorgeous on the skin. I would absolutely re purchase this palette just for those 3 products alone.
Swatches (No primer & several swipes)
Now let’s move onto It’s Judy Time! (ps. have you seen her twins? They’re adorable!) For me, I feel like Judy got the shaft with her palette design. Or maybe she wanted it to be very simple, but compared to Heart’s packaging it’s very plain. There are no blushes / bronzer’s in Judy’s – Strictly shadows.
When you open it up, there is a mirror (Mine is broken) and a quote from Judy which says ‘Natural is beautiful, but makeup is glam’ (love!)
There is definitely a nice range of colors & finishes in here and I absolutely love the pops of blues & purples!
The quality of these shadows were 100% better than Heart’s. For the most part, they were soft, pigmented and less chalky. The only ones I did have an issue with was the very first light pink matte shadow and the deep blue shimmer shade. Those were the only two that I had minor problems with. The light pink matte was chalky & lacked color & the blue had barely any pigmentation.
So, even though Judy’s palette lacks packaging, the eyeshadow quality definitely makes up for it! I would say if you’re more into shadows than face products, go with Judy’s for sure! Both are great palettes for makeup beginners and I will definitely get a ton of use out of the blush & bronzer from Heart’s palette!
What are your thoughts on these palettes from Judy & Heart? How do you feel about the quality differences?

I love the packaging on the first, so it’s sad it performed poorly overall (except the face products). The second looks nice product-wise!
Jamie Lewis says
Judy’s looks lovely!!!
Kat Dinges says
I love both of mine for really quick makeup looks. Like, if I’m in a hurry and just need SOMETHING on my face. The ThatsHeart palette really is adorbs.
BH does have some great products, but they are incredibly hit or miss when it comes to pigmentation across products.
the It’s Judy Time looks really nice!

I was curious about these palettes! Looks like It’s Judy Time is a winner!
Taneja's Bride says
Aw, That’s Heart looks adorable, but disappointing about the shadows! It’s Judy Time has a great selection of shadows!! <3

Great packaging. It’s a shame some weren’t that well pigmented.

The Judy palette is really nice. I love her too!
I guess we can’t win them all! At least some of the colors are pretty and pigmented!
Miranda Mendoza says
I SO want It’s Judy Time! She’s one of my fave YouTubers and she picked some great versatile colors.

Thats too bad about the first palette shadow application! Both look gorgeous
Angela Peters says
LOVE the It’s Judy Time palette!
Anastasia S. says
Too bad about the performance on some of these eyeshadows, but I learned that a good primer underneath makes huge difference.
Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries says
Both palettes look great to me but it’s a shame about the eyeshadow application from That’s Heart.
Kelly Ruiz says
Well, the colors look great!
Nidia Doherty says
I’ve not tried any BH products, but it’s a shame that they have these two palettes with such different levels of quality! I am so bummed by eyeshadows that are chalky and not pigmented – what’s the point of having a palette if you can’t use it to create the whole look?
Betzy Carmona says
I’m glad to have come across such an honest review ! I’ve been wanting to purchase both palettes but couldn’t find honest reviews, and yours truly helped.
Great review Jess! They both look like great palettes…but I hate chalky shadows.
Kath TheFabZilla says
It’sJudyTime looks more promising. Bummer w/ Heart ‘tho
Brooke @ Blushing Noir says
I LOVE when brands team up with bloggers!! It’s Judy Time’s palette looks awesome!
Laura Alagöz says
Both of the palettes are gorgeous, but I like That’s Heart packaging more though. Great review 🙂 xo’s
