Jeffree Star’s new palette Blue Blood released at the end of last month and it was a palette I HAD to get my hands on. I also have the Alien Palette and I was really, really impressed with how smooth and pigmented the shades were. So I ordered it as soon as it dropped, so let’s start with an unboxing.

I opened the cute pink box to find this adorable Jeffree Star tissue paper.

Under the paper was this! I tried to not rip the sticker … I failed.

Removed the tissue to reveal this gorgeous box.

Opened that box to reveal the gorgeous palette! I was really impressed with the package for the palette itself.

And then the gorgeous palette itself. I LOVED the look of the colors at first glance.

Different angle for extra gorgeousness. What I really love about this palette (and other palettes in general) is that each one has a cute emblem or something in the shade.

I also attempted a swatch, but I personally feel like they don’t really show how the eyeshadows perform and look.

Since I was going out with family the day I got this palette, I really wanted to do a simple look. I decided to use Crystal Flesh and Entitled on my eyelids and blended them together in the center, then added a little bit of Ocean Ice (my fav shade!) and Blue Monday in the corner to make the color pop a little more. Overall I was really, really happy with how a lot of the shadows performed. Using blue eyeshadow colors can be a little scary at first, but this palette has a nice mix of other shades that both work well with the blue shades or well on their own.

My only real complaint about this palette is it’s such an odd shape so it’s hard to keep it stored with my other palettes, but the palette is so gorgeous it doesn’t bother me all that much. If anything, this palette makes me want to get the Blood Sugar palette next …
