The Blood Lust Palette By Jeffree Star Cosmetics | Review

When you combine red and blue what do you get? Purple! So is only fitting that the third instalment of the Blood series from Jeffree Star Cosmetics is purple. This palette gives a somewhat vampy and gothic feel but in a high end fashion that screams luxury right down to its packaging.

The follow up to the internet breaking conspiracy palette is a gorgeous touch of purple to add to any make up lover’s collection.

JSC are always go hard or go home with their themes with Jeffree Star himself admitting in a recent video that he plans his collections as though he is planning an album.

The Blue Blood palette felt very regal and I feel the purple slots into that realm really well. The palette is made from real velvet and is shaped as a hexagon, which is completely different to anything I’ve personally ever seen before.

In Jeffree Star’s reveal video on his YouTube channel, he said that he created the outer packaging like a bumper around the palette to prevent any breakages during transmission and shipment of the product. Of course you can throw this away to save space, however I think It would be a good idea to keep if you’re planning of travelling with the palette.

The hexagon shaped palette is also complete with a jewellery clasp. I personally love how his packaging has clasps because it means my toddler can’t get into them! (Rip to my JSC alien palette, thanks Leo)

This palette includes some new formulas from the brand in the glittery shades. I’m all about the glitter so was super excited to give these a try.

  • Your Majesty – This is a bone white matte shade. These type of shades are a common feature in Jeffree Star’s palettes, dating right back to the first palette, Beauty Killer. I think they’re very necessary as I love to use them to set my lid everyday!
  • Take The Crown – A lilac shimmer shade.
  • Deviant – A matte lilac, similar to the lilac shade within the Jawbreaker palette but with a slightly different hue.
  • Beauty Sleep – lilac shimmer shade
  • Wet Jewel – This shade is one of the new formulas of glitter and I’ve really loved playing around with this one. I find it works best with your finger, which applies with most shimmer shades as they tend to pick up and transfer a lot better that way. I find if you use a wet brush then the glitter just becomes clumped, and a dry brush simply doesn’t pick it up.
  • Royal Pain – This shade reminds me of Tongue Pop from the Blood Sugar palette but with a more red tint to it than pink. It’s a pink matte shade that I found has worked really well to help blend out some of the darker purples.
  • Dungeon – A very dark purple matte shade, unlike anything is ever used before!
  • Scandal Water – This is a really light lilac matte with a beautiful imprint of a glass over the top. I love when he changes up his stamps to fit with his themes – I think it’s so fun!
  • Sworn Enemy – green glitter, the same formula as Wet Jewel.
  • Pink Magic – another beautiful new glitter formula.
  • Bleeding Heart – a red shimmer with a gorgeous heart and sword imprint.
  • Executioner – a black glitter shade, similar to black rainbow from the beauty killer palette.
  • High King – a warm toned purple with a stunning wand imprint on the pan
  • Vivid Mood – this is a lilac shade that I’ve been loving playing with!
  • Monarchy – this is a cool toned brown matte shade, it’s a bit dark for me but I’ve used it a few times as a starting transition or on the under eye.
  • Blood Queen – to me, this is what the palette is all about! The deep purple and the monarchy imprint.
  • Vile Serpent – this forest green is stunning and unlike anything else in my collection. I also love the snake imprint on this, very Gucci!
  • Betrayal – this is a lovely shimmer lilac that I’ve been using to highlight my inner corner a lot recently!

I really loved playing around with this palette as soon as it’s arrived. It really reinvigorated my adoration for make up which I feel can get lost in the everyday. I say this all the tome but I think it’s really important to step away from what you’re used to and just have fun every once in a while!

I created a purple cut crease on the lid and for the clouds I used some of the lilac shades and then the whiteish shade I adore, Your Majesty. On my lips I placed the shade Wet Jewel over a Soap and Glory lip gloss and J love the shine it gave me! I also used that shade as highlighter too.

I filmed the creation of this make up look for my YouTube channel! You can watch the video here.

Thank you so much for reading today. Let me know if you’re thinking of picking this palette up!

The Mini Controversy Palette By Jeffree Star Cosmetics & Shane Dawson | Review

Read my thoughts about the highly sought after Mini Controversy palette by Jeffree Star and Shand Dawson. 👁 ⭐️

Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star literally broke the internet with the release of their highly sought after conspiracy collection, which proved to be too hot to handle.

The Youtube duo managed to break the websites of Morphe, Beauty Lish and Jeffree Star Cosmetics as Shopify struggled to manage the high demands of traffic as fans raced to the sites in a bid to get their hands on this new collection.

Of course, their seven part docuseries that followed the journey of initial bullet pointing to the creation and distributing of the collection may have been partly to blame for their high volume of success. Either way, they have a lot to be proud of with this unique concept.

The Shane X Jeffree collection included the Mini Controversy Palette ($28), Conspiracy Palette ($52), Pink and Black Make Up Bags ($40), Lip Balm ($18), Lip Gloss – Shane Glossin’ ($18), Pink Pig Hand Mirror ($30), Velour Liquid Lipstick Bundle ($90), Black Pig Mirror ($30), Pink Pig Side Bag ($35), Travel Bag ($30), Black Pig Side Bag ($35), Accessories Bag ($30) and also six individual liquid lipsticks retailing for €18 each. I managed to get my make up loving hands on the Mini Controversy palette thanks to my BFF and her amazing Christmas presents! As soon as I manage to get the Conspiracy palette I will have a review up of that too because you know we love a JSC review on beccalouisee.com!

The colour story of this palette I think is just gorgeous because with the majority of JSC eyeshadow palettes, he loves to create a colour collection that is wearable but also encourages you to play around and experiment with different colours. It’s fun to play around with colours you wouldn’t normally reach for – remember it all washes off so there’s no harm in playing around!

Shade By Shade

  • Flat Earth – a stunning pale sky blue matte shade.
  • Cry on my couch – the perfect pale toned transition shade.
  • My Boyfriend’s Purse – this one is a champagne shimmer shade that I’ve been loving to use to highlight my inner corner and brow bone.
  • Controversy – I personally love the little tea imprint on the shade I think it’s really fun and cute. Purple shadows are notoriously difficult to manufacture so I always appreciate a good one, especially within a vegan formulation.
  • Diet Root Beer – This is a gorgeous warm toned matte brown shade which I think is great for building up some warmth into the crease. However, in the last instalment of the Shane Dawson series with Jeffree Star, we saw the pair contemplate removing this shade and replacing it with a highly demanded green shade which was previewed in the creation process.
Shade: Put It Back!
  • This shade caused a stir on social media as many fans wished that shade was included somewhere in the collection. The green shade which has been named, ‘Put It Back!’ will sit in place of this shade and Diet Root Beer will be moving up a space to replace Cry On My Couch. I adore the fact that Jeffree always listens to his consumers and their advice and requests for improvements, it’s great customer service and what gives the brand such a fantastic reputation that keeps customers and make up lovers coming back.
  • My Apology – This is a lovely shimmer tone with a warm brown/muave tint to it.
  • Exposed – a gorgeous pastel lilac matte shade.
  • Cancelled – this is a lovely blue matte with a gorgeous eye print on the pan.
  • The Simulation – This is the shimmering sister of cancelled with a deeper hue but equally as stunning!

Final Thoughts

I really love this palette and have been enjoying playing around with the different colours and also using it on a usual day for a natural look. The shades I think are stunning and as previously mentioned, I think the colours go really well together. The whole collection I think is genius and arguably the biggest make up launch to date and the most successful.

I’m hoping I can grab the Conspiracy palette on the next drop to complete my Jeffree Star eyeshadow palette collection and get a review up as soon as I can! I believe we’re looking at March / April for a restock so if you’d like anything then keep an eye on social media accounts for Jeffree Star and of course his retailers.

To the Test

I loved creating my first look with this palette! I used Diet Root Beer as a transition, Flat Earth to cut my crease and Controversy in the outer corner.

Thanks for reading as always.

The Blue Blood Palette By Jeffree Star Cosmetics | Review

What’s the tea on the coveted Blue Blood Palette? Read and find out 😇

Hello angels welcome back to my blog! Today I have another Jeffree Star Cosmetics review and I’m so excited! These are my favourite posts to write.

This 18 pan eyeshadow palette is presented in what can only be described as a coffin shaped blue box. It has a variety of cool toned mattes, shimmers and pressed pigments there to suit every look. This is for sure a blue, icier sister of the iconic Blood Sugar palette, which we all know and adore.

This palette looks very scary because all of the colours are pretty bold and out there, but remember that there’s no harm in trying new things – it’s just make up and after all, it washes off if you don’t like it!

So when I first started wearing make up at age 10, I would always, wear blue eyeshadow even when I was just going out to play with my friends, that was just my go to. So the Blue Blood has really brought that back and made me want to try blues again. (But with better blending)

You don’t see many palettes like this out there, which is why I have always adored Jeffree Star Cosmetics. There’s so much copy-catting in the beauty industry with more warmed toned eyeshadow palettes that you could even dream of. These palettes always take it to the next level which I love. It really pushes you to try new things out of your comfort zone!

The Shades

Cullian – an icy white/champagne shimmer that is fabulous for an inner corner or under brow highlight.

Mintea – probably one of my favourites because of how unique the shade is! I’ve never seen this anywhere else before.

Crystal Flesh – a bronze shimmer shadow, great for a natural, every day vibe.

I’m cold – another one of my favourites! I really love the pastel mattes in this one.

Untouchable – a beautiful matte baby pink.

Priceless – if you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you’ll know how much I adore orange eyeshadow – this is a great one!

Power – a light grey, similar to some of the grey in the Alien palette but I think it also fits this colour story really well too. You don’t see a lot of matte greys anymore – so they’re always welcome with me!

Blue Blood – the shade that lent its name from the palette. I love this matte shade as I feel it really sums up the whole vibe of the palette.

Deceased – another really pretty shimmer. Mermaid vibes?

Ice Tray – a very icy (duh) blue shimmer.

Blue Monday – OK, the pigmentation on this one is insaaaane! This is a purpley blue shade, that normally doesn’t work very well with other brands, but this is iconic.

Flourishing – first of all, the shade name is fabulous, second, this is another really unique shade which I want to play around with more – if I can think of looks for it to go with!

Wealthy – this makes a great shade to set your eye primer or concealer with.

Celebrity Skin – we all know and love the lipstick with this name, the shadow is just as good! So pretty! This makes a great transition shade for pretty much any eye look.

Entitled – another mermaid type shade! This shimmer is a stunning hybrid of green and blue.

Ocean Ice – ok, I LOVE this shade but I must say this, because it’s a pressed pigment and not an actual shimmer shadow, it gets EVERYWHERE. If you’re going to use this shade, I definitely recommend using your finger and not a brush and also doing your eye make up before your face make up!

Cremated – an ashy matte that’s a great match with the purple and deep blue tones.

Undertaker – the darkest shade in the palette – and a beautiful matte.

Final Thoughts

I would definitely recommend getting this palette if you’re looking for something a bit different to add to your collection. The shade range is second to none and you will adore the formula, if you liked blood sugar and the alien palette. Let me know if you pick this up – and what you think of it!
