Posting two days in a row?? Who am I? Let’s not get used to it because I will surely disappear for a few days! I hope you guys are having an amazing February. I know I am despite it starting a bit badly. I meant to post this last month but life gets in the way sometimes and it forces me to delay things here. But let’s get on with this..
I have been loving doing lookbooks and I decided towards the end of last year to have a focus palette each month. That means you will get a lookbook AND a palette review each month until I have gone through all the palettes I need to review.
For today’s lookbook I’m using the JSC Blue Blood palette as you’ve read in the title. I bought this palette when it launched and didn’t start using it until I did my Christmas Lookbook, so you will see some of those looks here again.
Also, I feel like I need to say this: I am well aware not everybody likes Jeffree Star, and I am okay with that. Even so, I will* be sharing future lookbooks, palette and* product reviews of his stuff, so if you’re not interested you can skip those posts. 🙂
Also, also, perfect timing to posting a lookbook using one of his palette as he released a video of his new Blood Lust palette yesterday. It looks neat and purple is my favorite color, but if I’m being truthfully honest, I wasn’t into it so I don’t think I will be adding it to my collection anytime soon. But I digress…
Here’s what the palette looks like if you’re not familiar with it.
It’s very gorgeous but it’s definitely not a color story for everyone.
Look #1: Winter Blues
This has got to be one of my favorite looks that I’ve created with this palette! I decided to do this look on a whim on a night that my husband and I were going out for drinks with my cousin. She ended up really liking my makeup and honestly, so did I.
Shades Used: Blue Blood, I’m Cold, Mintea, Deceased, Ice Tray and Cullinan
Even though it’s an all-blue look, it is very soft and surprisingly wearable and not too over-the-top. What do you think? Do you agree?

Look #2: Winter Wonderland
I knew I wanted to do another all-blue look and decided to use a blue shade for the eyebrows and I really liked how it brought the look together.
I don’t remember what shades I used, sorry! 😦
I really loved the gradient on the lid and how easy it was to blend each shade together. I literally didn’t have a problem with blending or building up shades when needed.

Look #3: Starry Night
This look was inspired by Mrs. Strawberry Blonde’s NOTD. I did mess up the stars and I also didn’t have a dark enough silver shade as her mani, but I did my best and I’m okay with it lol.
I don’t remember what shades I used! 😦
Again, I really don’t think I did her mani any justice but I can only do so much lmao.

Look #4: Smokey Pop of Color
Since this palette does have a few shades that are neutral, I really wanted to take advantage and create a soft, smokey eye with a pop of color.
Shades Used: Celebrity Skin, Priceless, Wealthy, Crystal Flesh, Ice Tray, Undertaker
The only thing I didn’t like is that the neutral shades don’t show up on my skin tone as much, but despite that, I think they’re great for diffusing the darker colors.

Look #5: Deep Ocean
The darkest look in this lookbook, I cannot believe I didn’t create more.
The dark shades are really brilliant and stunning.
Shades Used: Blue Monday, Cremated, Blue Blood, Ocean Ice, Cullinan
I did have a bit of trouble with the shade Cremated, and I don’t know if it was because of the order I applied the shades or if it really is not the best. I think I need to keep playing with it.

Look #6: Cool Au Naturale
This is the least favorite look in this lookbook because it looks lackluster. I think it was because I ended up setting my eyeshadow primer, but I could be wrong. The neutral shades were not my fave though.
Shades Used: Wealthy, Priceless, Celebrity Skin, Power, Crystal Flesh
There aren’t many neutral shades in this palette, which is fine. But for that reason, I don’t think this palette is for everyone. The blue shades shine the most obviously, as you’ve seen some the other looks in this lookbook.

Look #7: Pink & Blue Pastels
Another favorite look. At first I wasn’t into this combination but the pink and the blue go well together and I really appreciated this pastel moment.
Shades Used: Deceased, Blue Blood, Untouchable, Cullinan
The combination is literally perfect, I cannot get over it. I might try something like this again but with the darker blues.
I plan on doing more looks with this palette, I am NOT done coming up with ideas so these are just a few, I wanted to stop at number seven because that’s my favorite number. Anyway be on the lookout of a review of this palette sometime next week!
