Back in June 2019, the infamous Jeffree Star Cosmetics realised the most iconic summer collection. Within this collection was the adorably cute Mini Breaker Eyeshadow Palette. At the time of its launch, I think that the mini palette was pushed to the back burner, as it’s bigger sister, the Jawbreaker palette, was the most hyped-up product of the entire release. I wanted to give the Mini Breaker palette the attention it well and truly deserves!
The Mini Breaker Palette is Jeffree Star Cosmetics first-ever 9-pan eyeshadow and pressed pigment palette. It is vegan and cruelty-free. This beauty comes with a great range of mattes, duo chromes and glitter shades. Two of the shades, ‘Bubble Gum’ and ‘Bite Me’ are also featured in the larger Jawbreaker palette. This palette retails for $28 USD (approx. $41.37 AUD).
Double Scoop matte terracotta nude shade. I love using this shade through the crease or as a nice light transition shade.
Orange Crush is an orange matte with gold reflects. This is a great shade for in the crease or for a monochromatic look when placed all over the lid.
Foreplay is a matte pinky purple shade. I love using this shade as a transition colour to blend out the deeper purples in the palette.
Oral is a beautiful duo-chrome with lilac reflects. This is my favourite shade in this palette, I love using it all over the lid for a bold pop.
Purple Punch is a matte bright purple shade. This shade is perfect for deepening the outer corner. I also love using it in the lower crease and blending it out with foreplay.
Slice is a metallic orange/gold shade. This is another shade that is perfect when placed all over the lid or even as an inner corner highlight.
Bubble Gum is a matte baby pink shade. This is a perfect transition shade! It also works great as a light wash through the crease.
Bite Me is a deep rich purple metallic. Due to the metallic finish of this shade, it is perfect on the lid to add a bold pop to a look. I have to admit, this shade is one of the ones in this palette that I could do without.
Hot Fudge is a matte dark cool-toned brown shade. This shade is great for deepening the outer corner. I have to admit that I don’t often reach for this shade when I use this palette, I think it would have been better if this was a deep purple/black shade!
For a palette that costs $42 (roughly), I am really surprised. Why? Because I feel like this palette is worth more. Yes, it is a mini, which means that the price point is a little steep, but I feel like you really are getting your money’s worth.
There was little to no fallout with all the shades in the palette, which means you are getting your money’s worth without too much wastage. One negative point is that some of the shades do stain the skin ever so slightly, but that is to be expected when you are working with vegan eye products. I had no issues with blending out all the shadows on my eye either which is great! All the shades are creamy and soft to the touch, but like always, the matte shades are just ever so slightly drier than the shimmers. However, I don’t think they are as bad as some of my other eyeshadow palettes.
Will I be keeping the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Mini Breaker Palette in my collection? How dare you even ask me that question?! Of course, I am! Will I be reaching for it every day, no. But when I want myself a cute purple look, you best believe that I am grabbing this palette first. She is beauty, she is grace, she is a god damn keeper my friend.
Here are two looks I created using this palette:
