Welcome back to another eyeshadow palette review post! Today’s post is going to focus on the Jeffree Star Cosmetics MiniBreaker palette. If you want to learn more about this mini palette, and whether or not I will be keeping it in my collection, then keep on reading.
About The Palette –
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.
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).
The Packaging –
The palette itself is absolutely stunning. The cardboard exterior has a white background with many coloured paint splodges all over it, and of course the infamous Jeffree Star Cosmetics logo. It is a very solid and heavy palette as it does contain a large mirror on the inside which is a nice and necessary bonus in my books. Another bonus is that the packaging isn’t super thick like some of his other palettes, so it is easy to store within your collection. The smaller size of the palette also makes it a great one to travel with.
The Shades –
Double Scoop matte terracotta nude shade.
Orange Crush is an orange matte with gold reflects.
Foreplay is a matte pinky purple shade.
Oral is a beautiful duo-chrome with lilac reflects.
Purple Punch is a matte bright purple shade.
Slice is a metallic orange/gold shade.
Bubble Gum is a matte baby pink shade.
Bite Me is a deep rich purple metallic.
Hot Fudge is a matte dark cool-toned brown 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.
