Yes it’s the best time, Jeffree Star eyeshadow palette review time! This marks the 6th eyeshadow palette release, a beautiful spring collection of blues and mints in 18 pans.
The cardboard component is a wooden type of look and on the inside the box resembles a coffin. It has the same clasps as it’s red sister Blood Sugar (which is great for me because it means my baby is less likely to be able to get in to it and ruin it)
The formula is very pigmented so it’s quite powdery, you literally need two taps into the pan and that’s it, anymore and there’ll be too much kickback and fallout! With the shimmers I like to put them on my brush and then wet the brush after – it protects the actual shadow from getting ruined! The pressed pigments apply better with a finger too!
Cullian: Icy shimmer wth a diamond imprint in the pan
Mintea: a matte mint shade (one of my faves)
Crystal flesh: champagne metallic
Im cold: powder blue matte
Untouchable: this one is a slightly different formula as it is a pressed pigment, it’s a gorgeous peach shade which is possibly my favourite shade in the palette.
Priceless: a more tanned pink matte shade with a lip imprint.
Power: deep grey with navy undertones
Blue blood: sky blue matte
Deceased: dark blue metallic
Ice tray: pale blue metallic
Blue Monday: another pressed pigment, a very bright purpley blue
Flourishing: bright teal matte
Wealthy: soft beige matte
Celebrity skin: the liquid lip shade we all know and love is now in an eyeshadow shade (love life)
Entitled: metallic, glittery teal
Ocean ice: this is a pressed pigment in a royal glittery blue.
Cremated: a dark matte green
Undertaker: a very deep navy with a coffin imprint

These are just a few swatches of the shades that I think really sum up the whole mood for the palette. The greens and blues really give it an ocean, mermaid type of feel.
I always adore the campaign photos for new JSC releases. They’re so inspirational!
TO THE TEST
For this look I used blue blood and blue Monday in the crease which I blended out with mintea. I then cut the crease with concealer and applied I’m cold on top. For highlight under the brow and in the inner corner I used Cullian.
All in all, I adore this palette, it’s so completely unique from anything I own or anything I’ve even really seen before. Putting out a palette out based solely on blues and bright shades is always risky but it’s really paid off in this one.
12 year old me would have adored this palette because blue eyeshadow was really my vibe (it looked hideous but that’s besides the point)!

It can always look scary, but remember that it all wipes off so there’s no excuse not to play around and have fun! Will everyone think that the shades are wearable for everyday? Of course not. It’s definitely for the bold,however there are some natural shades in there too.
Thanks for reading.
