Thirsty Eyeshadow Palette
Jeffree Star Cosmetics just launched a new shadow palette and the summer vibes it gives off are almost as intense as its pigment.
Thirsty, which made its debut as part of Jeffree’s Summer 2018 collection, is a 15- shade shadow palette containing a mix of mattes, neutrals, vibrant color, and foiled pigments.
This palette has Jeffree’s personality all over it, from the shade names to the color selection. I can literally hear Jeffree’s voice in my head as I read off the names. BIIIIIITCH YES!
Personally, I am a huge fan of a pretty peachy eye for summer time so the top row of this palette is all mine.
The neutral matte shades Jeffree chose are so versatile and work well in the crease, outer V, and lower lash line for a smoked out feel. Parched is the perfect matte bone shade for setting your shadow primer and prepping the lid for color.
If you love bright colors, this palette can also work for you. The blue and mint pigments are intense and saturated without a ton of fall out or patchiness.
In fact, patchiness basically doesn’t exist in this palette. I am so surprised how smooth each matte shade is. They are creamy and glide and blend beautifully on the lid.
My only complaint on the mattte shades is I feel like we are lacking an intense deep shade. Drizzle is deep in the pan, but applies a more subtle chocolate brown and is not quite as opaque as I’d hoped.
Now to my fav, foiled pigments. I was a little concerned when I first swatched the shimmers because 4/5 are not as creamy as I expected.
Divine is creamy and intense. So intense, in fact, that the swatch was not even trying to come off my arm.
The other shimmer shadows are not as creamy as Divine. They have a drier texture so I was concerned they would crumble apart and flake off of my eye, but they absolutely did not.
Even though they lacked the same texture as Divine, they clung to my skin and applied perfectly. The payoff of these shimmers is just incredible.
They are so beautiful and I find the colors to be very flattering on any skin tone.
I will admit this palette did not blow my mind when I first saw it, but boy am I glad I purchased it. It really is so versatile.
I will probably be reaching for this palette much more so than I originally thought.
Thirsty is my first purchase from the Jeffree Star Collection and I now hope to own more items in the future. My next purchase will probably be the Blood Sugar palette that I’ve been eyeing since it launched.
