Jeffree Star… Love him or hate him, you cannot deny he makes beautiful makeup. When his beloved blood sugar palette first previewed on the internet, I swooned hard, I knew I needed it at a first glance. Roll on 2 months later, as it took forever to come to beauty bay AND was only available for pre order, I now can finally say I am the proud owner of one. I’ve actually never tried anything from Jeffree Star Cosmetics so its not like I was buying this palette based on the quality of others products I’ve tried, which means the packaging and colours must be pretty darn amazing to make me need this palette like I did.
I know you’re all here for the swatches as that’s the most exciting part and the most helpful when deciding whether you really need to buy another eyeshadow palette to add to the 50 others you already have.. But I thought I’d give you a quick rundown on what I think of the palette overall.
Packaging: This was one of the big selling points for me and everybody else I am assuming. It comes in a red faux leather trunk style case, it’s ridiculously heavy, almost too heavy to use the mirror properly as your arm aches so quickly when holding it. It is extremely luxurious and even though it racks in at £46 (eek!) I still think it feels a lot pricier that it is. You also get 18 shades and the pans are pretty decent size so I personally think it is well worth it.
Shadows: This palette was initially brought out for Valentines Day so the colour scheme is very much what you would expect of the holiday – pinks, purples and reds. However the shades definitely have a Jeffree Star twist on them with a slightly more unusual bright red and fluresent pink. Every single shade is very pigmented and I especially love the pressed pigment shadows as they’re absolutely beautiful but have next to no fallout which is unseen of for pigments.
Overall: I truly have nothing quite like this in my collection and if it comes back around again on sale I would definitely recommend treating yourself to it if you are like me and a sucker for a pretty eyeshadow palette. The colour scheme has a unique twist to it and I believe it is more of a collectors item – of course I will make good use of it, I just think it is one of those makeup products I will never chuck away no matter how old and manky it becomes!
I tried not to make this post too text heavy as I think the palette speaks for itself! I hope you enjoyed this post from me, I know its been a little while but I thought this was a nice post to come back with, it has definitely made me want to try his androgony palette and liquid lips even more arggg. Let me know if you’ve tried anything from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, if you aren’t a fan of his then I’m sorry but please keep in mind I’m just reviewing his makeup not condoning any of his actions.
