Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a super huge brand with lots of beauty products varying from eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks to blinding highlighters. You would think after all of the reviews on eyeshadow palettes such as the Illamasqua shiver palette that I would be tired of getting them by now but nope, far from it to be honest… lol. I have a few eyeshadow palettes but I do like to have a choice of different finishes and shades and that is ‘Blood Sugar’ comes in.
Blood Sugar was a right pain to get because it sells out so darn quickly as soon as the blooming thing restocks. I didn’t get this myself but I was super lucky to get gifted this palette and I am very thankful. I have noticed though it has recently been restocked on Beauty Bay! It costs £46 and has 18 shades inside the fabulously designed palette.
I can honestly say out of all the eyeshadows palettes packaging this one has to be the best quality packaging and design I have got to date. Its built strongly with clasps that keep it shut and also inside apart from the fabulous eyeshadows is a very good sized mirror. The mirror makes it so much easy to apply eyeshadows as usually and I am sure it is not just me who thinks a majority of eyeshadow mirrors are too small?
It also comes in a sleeve which gives me retro vibes as it looks like a videotape and its box haha! The sleeve also has the emblem and holds the palette perfectly.
Most of the eyeshadows are very creamy and as soon as you touch them they give you a lot of pigment that feels almost silky. Root canal, Prick and Coma are not as buttery as the other shades in the palette but they are still easy enough to use and blend with the other shades, it just takes a bit longer with these particular shades in my opinion.
All of the shades have pigmentation that exceeded way past my expectations and would say most would give high pigment first time but as with the shades I said above, they take a little more work to get the higher intensity of pigmentation like the other shades in the palette. My favourites for intense pigmentation has to be ‘Donor’, ‘Sweetener’ and ‘Blood Sugar’.
They is 3 different finishes in the palette including glittery, matte and presser glitters. Each shade is very buttery to the touch and each one applies as it should. My personal favourites in the palette glitter shades as they are very creamy to apply and also blend to perfection.
AMAZING! worth every penny of the £46. It has 18 amazing shades that aren’t typical shades you find in eyeshadow palettes. I love that it has a mix of natural shades, bronzes and also brights and stand out reds, it’s definitely an eyeshadow palette I never knew I needed until I got it.
I have nothing bad to say about the palette apart from the fact it is a right pain to get as it always seems to be sold out ( available at the moment on beauty bay) Some of the eyeshadows in the palette such as root canal and cavity take a little longer to remove with makeup remover such as micellar water ( my favourite has to be Garnier micellar water).
My favourite eyeshadows in the palette are ones I use together most days to create my everyday makeup look and they are; ‘Cake mix’: I cover my entire eyelid with this, ‘Donor’: I add to the outer corners of my eyes to add sparkle and last but not least ‘Sweetener’ for the inner corners of my eyes and also for my underneath lower lashes
