The Jeffree Star Alien Eyeshadow Palette is weird. I mean this in a good way. To start, it is Jeffrey’s fifth eyeshadow palette. However, this palette is different from his other palettes. For one thing, it is a different shape than his more traditional rectangular and square palettes. Moreover, the shadow color story is brand new. Hence, the palette is not like the many brown, neutral warm-toned palettes. Don’t you think we’ve seen too many of them this year? For this reason, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!.
Also, it is the anchor for his 2018 holiday collection. What I love most are the funky shades and textures in the Alien Palette. As a result, you can create subdued looks and bold looks with the palettes 18 shades and their finishes.
You can find the Alien Palette on the Beautylish Website. Also, it is on the Jeffree Star Website. Moreover, the palette sells for $52. For 18 full- sized shadows, you can break the price down to $2.80 a shade. Now don’t you feel better?
Jeffree Star Alien Eyeshadow Palette Packaging
To begin with, the Jeffree Star Alien Palette is Out Of This World! Literally!
It is the head of an Alien. Also, the palette is made with faux leather. However, it feels soft and buttery like leather. And it looks like real leather. In addition, the faux leather E.T. is pink. Furthermore, his eyes are three dimensional. Actually, the eyes are made from industrial plastic. And, the eyes make ET look like he’s coming alive.
The packaging is very substantial. In other words, it is very sturdy.
Next, there is a hinge on the top of the palette. Therefore, you open it from the bottom, and lift it up. When the lid is closed, magnets keep the lid fully in place. Inside, there is a full mirror on the top. Your eighteen shadows are on the bottom. Sixteen of the shadows are embossed with a Star. The other two, Flying Saucer and X-Files have alien related images embossed on them. One of the images is a flying saucer. The other image is an alien head.
Jeffree Star Alien Eyeshadow Palette Formula
The highly pigmented eye shadows give you a high color payoff. Also, the matte shades are made with rich pigments. Furthermore, the metallics are creamy and buttery. All of the shadows are buildable. The shades are easy to apply. I had some fallout. However, it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. Besides, the formula is similar to Jeffree’s other palettes. And, we love the older palette formulas.

Jeffree Star Alien Eyeshadow Palette Last But Not Least……
First, Alien is Jeffree Star’s fifth eyeshadow Palette. And, it is different from his first four palettes. One, the other four palettes are boxed in square-shaped palettes. Moreover, the palette is a cool-toned palette. Third, unlike the warm neutral palettes that are trending now, Alien has weird shades like greens and purple. Furthermore, Alien’s secondary shades are based on gold undertones. As a result, you’ll be able to create subtle daytime looks as well as vivid, funky, and weird nighttime looks. Therefore Alien is a win, win palette.
The Alien compact is large. As a consequence, the palette is not easy to travel with. Unless, that is, you carry a large tote. However, Alien looks amazing on your vanity.
