RESTOCKED – JEFFREE STAR BLOOD SUGAR PALETTE IN DEPTH REVIEW AND SWATCHES (SORRY JEFFREE)

So like the basic bitch I am, I’m obsessed with everything Jeffree Star. Jeffree Star could literally send me his own shit in a tube and my first thought would be ‘wow so pigmented, how does he do it?’

But I know the beauty community pretty much has a breakdown the minute you suggest you remotely like the owner of brand and the accusations of being a bias blogger will fuck you harder then any man could manage to. So quick disclaimer, this review will be 100% honest. This palette is extremely overpriced (well for me anyway. Your bitch is having to pay this off in instalments – shout out to beautylish) and I would not influence you guys to spend this much on a palette unless it was going to change your life.

I am a total packaging whore, if a product is shit but looks beautiful, that’s a good enough reason for me to hit up Wonga for a loan so to no surprise I adore this packaging. I think the clasp design and the bold lettering on the front of the palette is completely unique and gives the palette a quirky yet luxurious feel.

However, when I opened the palette there wasn’t any plastic protective sheets inside to protect the shadow or the mirror. Which to be honest, is pretty shit considering if anything was busted up in the palette I would have to wait for it to be reshipped to America. So I would of thought they would take every precaution to ensure there wasn’t any damage but, thankfully there wasn’t – thank fuck.

Going from left to right we have: Glucose, Sugarcane, Cake Mix, Ouch, Donor, Intravenous.

I am very picky when it comes to white shadow (I swear by setting your eye primer with a white shadow) and I can honestly say Glucose is one of the most pigmented white shadows I’ve ever worked with. That shit will wipe out mistakes, past life regrets, drunken texts to your ex, literally anything and I love it.

I find shades Sugarcane, Cake Mix, Ouch and Intravenous to be very pretty shades but the formula is so buttery and soft that there is definite fall out if you pack on the shadow, so if fall out is a problem for you I’d definitely give this palette a miss.

Going back to the first shimmer shade in the palette, Donor, I really love this shade. I found Jeffree’s shimmer formulas in his past palettes, like Beauty Killer, really chunky and hard to work with to the point where it actually put me off from using the palettes all together. However, his shimmer shadow formula has dramatically improved. His shimmer shadows are no longer uncomfortable on the eye and glide on with stunning pigmentation using either a brush or your finger.

Going from left to right we have: Candy Floss, Tongue Pop, Sweetner, Cavity, 0 Positive and Root Canal.

The middle row of this palette is without a doubt my favourite row of the whole palette. Every single one of these shades have such strong pigmentation and a soft buttery formula that makes blending a absolute breeze (which judging from my last post you guys will be pretty aware that blending isn’t really a skill of mine.)

I tried to think of a down side to this row but, I really don’t have so on to the final row.

Going from left to right: Prick, Cherry Soda, Fresh Meat, Blood Sugar, Extraction and Coma.

As you can see the swatches in this photo are slightly worse then the previous and this is due to the fact that I actually had a few problems with this row.

Prick, Blood Sugar and Coma seemed to follow the exact same formula of having a buttery consistency as the shades in the previous rows. The colours were pigmented and very easy to work with. However, I didn’t get the same result with the shades Cherry Soda, Fresh Meat and Extraction.

These shades seemed to have a dryer consistency and I struggled to blend them out on my eye. Now we all know I’m a shit blender so you can choose to take the blending comment how you will but I really didn’t understand why these shades felt noticeably dryer. Especially since they are meant to be formulated the same as all the other shades in the Blood Sugar Palette.

In conclusion, I think the palette is visually stunning and a beautiful collection piece but I did feel let down in the inconsistency of  the formulated shades on the bottom row and I also don’t like that the shadows can leave a stain on the eyelid.

I am incapable of creating an eye look and loving every shade I put on my eyes. I usually end up wiping off and reapplying all my eyeshadow at least 3-4 times before I find what can only be described as a mediocre look for my night out. But having bright red or pink stained eyes tends to make that process a little more tricky so personally I don’t think this is gonna end up being a go to palette for me.

However, that happens to be completely personal choice and I am glad I managed to get my hands on this palette because as a makeup collector I definitely intend on showing it off in the background of my selfies to give the illusion that I have some makeup knowledge like the fake Bitch I am.

Until next time, Han x

    Love Jeffree Star, but I do agree, the price for this palette is high! Also, looking at your swatches, I love the first set (the golds and browns) because those work well with my blue eyes… Reds and pinks sometimes make me look like a bloodshot zombie or like I’m sick (not cute), so I try and stay away from them. As much as I’m obsessed with Jeffree, there are too many factors going against me where I can’t justify purchasing this palette because I’d never use it. Great review of it, though!

      I completely agree! I love Jeffree Star but I just personally cant pull off strong bright colours so I hardly reach for them unless I’m doing full ‘glam’ but the fact that they stain the eyes just automatically puts me off! Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed honey! X

    This is honestly a great review and I love the way you wrote it! The colours look great but they aren’t really my style so I probably wouldn’t choose it myself! Looking forward to reading some more of your posts! Xx

    Lol, let me just say that I was literally cracking up reading this! You’re hilarious. I love how blunt and honest you are. I loved my Blood Sugar palette but I did have some trouble with that bottom row too! As for the blending, I haven’t had any issues but I’d consider myself at least somewhat knowledgeable in makeup so that could be it. XD

    Jeffree Star is only one of three beauty vloggers I like and yet I don’t own one lick of anything by him! I’ve been eyeballing the Blood Sugar palette for months now. Your post makes me want it BAD.
