Jeffree Star Blood Sugar Palette: My Review
It feels like a lifetime ago since I purchased this palette, I don't know why it has taken me so long to sit down and give it a place on my blog. I was one of those people who had this palette disappear from their basket within the first few minutes of it launching, but luckily, due to such a huge demand, Jeffree announced that he was creating a waitlist - something he'd not done previously. I paid up and patiently waited...
Between putting myself on the waitlist and it arriving, the rest of my Love Sick collection arrived. It all looked amazing, and made me even more desperate to receive the palette!
Of course when it finally landed, I was beside myself with excitement! It was here! It was mine! I can tell you for nothing that it was more than worth the wait. The Blood Sugar Palette is without a doubt my most favourite piece within my ever growing make up collection.
It has a selection of colours that can be used on a daily basis as well as for a more dramatic, going out kind of look. It has all shades of nudes and golds mixed with the more daring shades of purples and reds. They all perform extremely well, not just in the swatches but on the face as well.
Highly pigmented, easy to blend, with no patchiness...perfect! All of the shades compliment each other, you can create an endless amount of looks with this one product. I particularly love the shades 'Glucose' and 'Sugarcane' as they are light enough to look lighter than my own skin tone which can be fairly hard to find.
The whole top row of the palette makes for an easy everyday look, more work appropriate should we say?!
Blood Sugar is more predominantly made up of matte shades, though there are a couple of shimmers popped in too. 'Candy Floss' is probably my favourite shimmer, of course, its pink! I love how 'Sweetener' has almost a multi chrome effect, and Donor is a gorgeous copper toned bronze. They look amazing applied with a dry brush, but I prefer to use either a wet brush or my fingers to really amp up the coverage.
Aren't they all so gorgeous?! So bright, so perfect - it was love at first sight...
I could chat about how much I love the colours, texture, pigmentation all day, so let’s move on and take a look at the packaging.
The whole Love Sick collection has the most attractive packaging - you can really tell that no attention to detail has been skipped over. The palette comes in a white card cover, almost similar to old VHS tapes (I bet some of you reading this won't know what one of those even is haha!), and the palette itself is like a little red doctors case, with a faux leather finish, complete with little clips on the side. Inside there is a decent sized mirror - almost the same size as the lid, perfect for on the go. Obviously the Jeffree Star branding is tastefully printed here and there too.
You feel like you are holding something truly luxurious when this palette is in your hands, you have the weight of something that should be more than the value of roughly £40. The pan sizes for each shadow are of a good amount - plenty of product for your pennies.
This palette is cruelty free and vegan friendly. Unfortunately it seems as though it out of stock at the moment, but I have seen teasers that it is to come back into stock soon, so keep an eye out HERE and HERE.
Did any of you manage to get your hands on this? Which are your favourite shades? Let me know!
Thank you for reading,
Love, Leanne Xx
