First, are you as tired as I am with the warm summer palettes, that are trending now? So, you too have had enough of red, orange, yellow and brown shades. Now is the time to forget the trend, and try something different. For example, how about trying a new color story. One good choice would be the Tarte High Tides and Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette. The reason this is a good choice is the palette is a combination of the warm sunset vibes, mixed with cool and icy high tide blues. Therefore it is a good introduction to blue , without completely giving up on the sunset shades. Another amazing choice is the Jeffree Star Blue Blood Eyeshadow Palette.
To begin with, Blue Blood is the antithesis of a warm Sunset Palette. Instead, it is a cool, icy palette. Moreover, it features a blue color story. And, the eyeshadows in this palette will make you drool.

First of all, the outer box, painted a gorgeous shade of dark blue, is gorgeous. Also, the box feels like soft velvet. Next, the compact is a coffin. Yes, you heard me right, it’s an opulent coffin! So, a heavy plastic creates the body of the coffin. Otherwise, it is like Jeffree’s Blood Sugar Palette, It is a sturdy box.
It has the most beautiful metallic blue hardware. These hinges and clasp keep the compact tightly locked.
Under the coffin’s lid, is a massive mirror. And, there are a whole lot of blues in the 18 eyeshadow pans in this collection.

There are 18 eyeshadow shades in the Blue Blood Palette. First, pigment-packed formula gives you saturated pigments, for an intense color payoff. Furthermore, most of the shadows (12) have matte finishes. And, the matte formula feels soft. A few of the shadows were a bit patchy at first. The shimmer shades had some fallout. Although, when you have a good palette, a little fallout is no big deal. The shadows are easy to blend, and layer. Above all, the shadows are long-lasting.

Only Jeffrey star would make a compact that looks like a coffin! Moreover, I love some of the names, such as Undertaker, Deceased, and Ice Tray. Then, there is Cullinan. What the heck is that?

Finally, I love that the palette has something for everyone. For example, it has pastel shades, if you want a pastel, lady-like look. Also, it has bright neon shades, for when you want to get out of your box and feel daring. And, it has dark shades if you want to be dark and dramatic.
