Mean Girls Palette Swatches & Review

Hi everyone, and welcome to the first blog post of the new year! I have been trying to incorporate some beauty content on my blog for a while, and I’m happy to announce I’ve finally decided what to do. I received this adorable Mean Girls palette as a Christmas gift from one of my best friends, so I wanted to pop in and do a review and show you the swatches!

The packaging is adorable and is themed after the infamous Burn Book in the movie. The palette comes inside a sleeve that you slide off that looks identical to the front. It designed to look and feel like an actual book, so it is a little bulky. The material is not high quality or hard plastic or anything, but it does have a hard feel to it. As far as the packaging goes, I do feel like they nailed it with representing the movie, which is the most important thing with this specific palette.

Mean Girls Burn Book Palette Shades

The palette features twelve shades with matte, shimmer, and pearl finishes. All of the names are Mean Girls references! The palette opens up like a book and the shades are on the right, and there is a rather large mirror on the left. If I had to make one complaint, it would be that it may be a little hard to do a “full” makeup look just using this palette if you like to use a lot of different shades, but there are some options in here for two or three shade looks. The hardest part with creating a look with just this palette is a lack of a versatile transition shade.

Some of the shades definitely swatch better than others– the matte shades in particular are a little hard to work with and are somewhat powdery, especially the white shade “The Plastics.” The matte shades do seem buildable, however. You would want to be especially careful about being heavy-handed in your application with these shades because have a tendency to want to stay where they are placed if you’re not careful.

The shimmery shades, however, swatch AMAZINGLY and are super pigmented! You don’t need as much product to get a high level of pigmentation with the shimmer shades, and they are buttery and smooth.

The pearl shades are somewhat in the middle with their pigmentation levels, but overall I did like how they swatched and are also pretty smooth.

 Here are all the swatches next to their names in the palette. My favorites are probably Wednesday and October 3rd! Also, when looking at these swatches please keep in mind that I am PALE… as in the lightest foundation shade is still sometimes too dark for my skin.

If you want to purchase the Mean Girls palette for yourself, you can grab it at your local Ulta or on their website for $55. It’s also available on the brand’s website right hereThey ship internationally to most countries.

Let me know if you’d like to see a makeup look with this palette! Also, let me know your favorite shade out of the palette!

    I didn’t realize that they made a Mean Girls palette! I love the packaging; it really does look like the Burn Book. I think ‘Cool Mom’ would have to be my favorite shade based on your swatches! A makeup look post would be fun; I would definitely give it a read!

      Yeah, the matte shades are the most difficult to work with for sure.

    I don’t use eyeshadow really but I love looking at different palettes!! I especially am attracted to the shimmery and glittery ones, and that’s great to hear they’re super pigmented! Nothing annoys me more than something I have to apply like 10 times before I can see it 😂
