I enjoy trying eyeshadow palettes from different brands; so I do a lot of buying and selling on Depop (@nekokittyx3). Over the years I have tried many JeffreeStar Cosmetics– and sold a lot, too. However, one product that I am pretty sure I am going to keep in my collection is the recently released, Blood Lust eyeshadow palette. Keep reading for more details!
When this over-the-top luxury eyeshadow palette debuted, I actually didn’t jump at the first chance to purchase it and I am glad I didn’t! Even though I liked the idea of it, I had already gotten my grasp on the ABH Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Volume 1 and didn’t feel the need to add another purple themed palette to my collection. Nevertheless, with a 30% off sale that recently happened on JSC website and the option of Afterpay, I couldn’t resist! After all, if I didn’t like it I knew I’d find a good home for it on Depop. 😀 But I am pretty sure this one will be sticking around for awhile! I was able to snag this palette for $37.80 USD (Reg. $54 USD) Of course, after shipping + taxes, though my full total was close to the original price of the palette. In total $55.67 USD. So basically I got free shipping.
The show stopper in this collection was most definitely the packaging. Not only was the cardboard boxing elegantly designed and made for safety with an inside rim for a buffer of the palette, the actual palette itself is pure luxury. It reminds me a lot of the velvety soft Crown Royal whisky bottle bags my Dad used to collect 🙂 The hexagon shaped palette has a golden ball clasp on the front, large mirror inside, and 18 pigmented mattes, wet glitzy shimmers, and smooth metallics.

I have a few of the JSC’s eyeshadow palettes and I must say this is the better of the formulas. With each palette release, the mattes get creamier with less fall out and the metallic/shimmers quality becomes better. I didn’t think that was even possible. I usually don’t like when brands that I’ve gotten used to, decide to branch out with new formula textures, but in this case I am not mad at it. JSC has debuted a new formula with their glitzy metallic glittery shades that reminds me of ColourPop Supershock eyeshadows, but they actually work with a brush. The result is a blinding, high glitter finish (especially when used wet). Colors blend beautifully together without muddiness and I am overall very impressed! Even though Blood Sugar is my favorite color story, Blood Lust definitely has the better quality and originality. Even if you can’t grab this on a sale it is worth it!
