We are back with another makeup review, this time one of the presents my mama got me for Christmas. Ain’t she amazing. I’ve finally had the time to play with this one meaning that it’s time to review it.
The Alien palette is part of the new holiday collection. I’m pretty certain that this was pre-ordered on Beauty Bay but you can also purchase this on the JSC website (see here). It retails for £46 in the UK and $52 from JSC. This palette is vegan and cruelty free like many JSC products.
The Alien Palette comes in an outer box featuring a galaxy design with the company name, logo and palette name in the centre. All product information and ingredients are on the back of the outer box but not on the back of the palette. The packaging on the palette is absolutely gorgeous. Pink faux leather with the 3D eyes, I’m honestly living for this one. There’s also a huge mirror within the lid.
In the Alien palette you get 18 shades, 11 are matte shadows and the rest are metallics. As always, the Jeffree Star logo has been pressed into most of the pans but 2 contain an alien and a UFO. I love small attention to detail like this. All the shade names are written underneath the pans so you always know what you are using.
All the shadows are as beautiful as they look in the pan. The matte shades have amazing pigment while still been easy to blend and build. A few of the shades did leave some fallout in the pan but none under the eye. All of the metallic shades are buttery and have an amazing shine to them without having too much fallout. For me, the metallics are best applied with the finger or a damp brush.
When doing the swatches, the lighter neutral mattes did need a double swipe for that length of line but they did swipe well. The shimmers did not require a double swipe for the swatches, not a single one.
Of course, as with all palettes, I have a couple of shades that I love more than others. The shimmer shades of Alien and Probe are unique to this palette and I adore them. UFO and Moonrock are also amazing shimmers but there are similar shades in the blood sugar palette. For the matte shades I absolutely love abduction, flying saucer and tall grey.
Overall, I am so happy with this palette from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. The packaging is everything we’ve come to expect, sturdy and unique. The palette also has a shade range which is different to those currently been released. I am seriously in love with the Alien Palette from the packaging to the product.
