Jeffree Star (whether you like him or not) makes some goooood stuff. I am a massive fan of his liquid lipsticks, but before this, I’ve never tried his highlighters or ‘skin frosts’, despite hearing mixed reviews. When I heard he was bringing out two highlighter palettes, I thought this would be a good opportunity to try a few out for the first time.
He released two highlighter palettes- 24 Karat and Platinum Ice. I chose 24 Karat as I don’t really go for icey highlighters and prefer gold tones as they flatter my warm, medium-toned skin. I bought mine from Beauty Bay for £35 (£5.80 per palette which is good value!).
The packaging is gorgeous as usual! There are two existing shades (King Tut and Dark Horse) and four new shades. The shades are:
- Sarcophagus – Pale pink.
- King Tut – Light brown.
- Dark Horse – Medium brown.
- Legendary – Salmon pink.
- Giza – A purple toned brown.
- Liberace – Yellow gold.
I felt like the only shade I couldn’t use was Dark Horse, as it’s too dark on my skin. However, it looks beautiful as an eyeshadow! When finger swatching it- The highlighters felt a little powdery, but when a brush is used on the face it actually performs really well. A little goes a long way, as this is definitely NOT for those who want a natural glow.
For this look I used Dark Horse on the lid, Liberace in the inner corner, Sarcophagus on the nose and cupid’s bow, King Tut on my cheek bones, Legendary as a blush topper, and Giza on my lips.
