Yea you know I had to get this one. The shades just sang to me, just wish I could have got the mini breaker as well but I’m poor af right now.
As always, I purchased the Jawbreaker Palette from Beauty Bay (see here) for £54. Y’all can also get this from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics website for $58 (see here). Delivery is free from Beauty Bay. My parcel arrived within a few days.
The Jawbreaker Palette is from the new summer collection and comes with an outer box designed as a white jawbreaker. I love it but it doesn’t match the packaging of the rest of the collection (I love the rest as well). All ingredients are listed on the back of the outer box.
The actual palette is designed to look like a pink jawbreaker. Again I like it but I’d have preferred the palette to match the outer box. The Jeffree Star logo and palette name are on the front of the palette in raised letters. There’s also a huge mirror on the inside.
The Jawbreaker palette packaging is a lot thinner than the blood sugar and blue blood palettes. It still feels sturdy enough but it does make it easier to travel with. I like this sleeker type of palette but it doesn’t give you the same extravagance feeling as the others do.
You get 24 shadows in this palette; 6 metallics, 1 shimmer and 17 mattes. There are a beautiful range of shades in this palette with a few natural and pastel ones mixed into the rainbow.
On the back of the packaging, the company states that the shades bubblegum, licorice, f*ck, gum drop, snack, and what?, orange juice, suck, cotton candy, bite me and cherry wet are not to be used in the immediate eye area. These are all the pink/red toned shades.
As I don’t have sensitive eyes, I ignored this advice and used them anyway (do NOT do this). I didn’t experience any irritation to the eyes when using these shades. Some of these shades did stain my eyes but this came off with an oil based cleanser.
I’ve tried to use as many shades as possible before writing this review but not managed to use them all. What I have tried, I am loving the majority of them but I found that shades Bubble gum and Soaked to be a little patchy.
The shades Wow, Suck, Cheery Wet, Raspberry and Gumdrop really stood out to me. They have amazing pigment and are easy to blend. There is some kickback in the pan for a few of the shades but very little fallout on the face. The neutral shades are equally gorgeous and work well with the colourful shades.
The metallic shades and the shimmer are soft and buttery to touch. They have a gorgeous shine to them and apply smoothly. For me, they are best applied with a damp brush or your finger.
When doing the swatches, a couple of the lighter shades needed a double swipe however the pastel shades have great pigment and swatched well. All of the metallics swatched beautifully.
Overall, I am very happy with the Jawbreaker Palette from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. The packaging is pretty simple but sturdy and good for travelling. There’s a great mix of shades that are pigmented and easy to blend. Some shades are patchy but I can deal with it.
