Hey, guys! I’m excited to share my first blog collab today 😊 If you don’t follow Tayler’s Edit already, you need to go to her page, check out her post for this collab (and her other posts!!), and subscribe to her! We’ve been blogging buddies for awhile now and she runs a beauty blog also. She updates great quality posts very regularly 👍 ❤️ She’s very sweet and has top-notch content 💁

(So sorry, I didn’t notice until uploading I made a shadow on the bottom of the palette 🤦)

I did a first impressions kind of blog on the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien palette in January, and I’ve used it quite a bit since then! It’s one of the best palettes I own! And wouldn’t you know, I talked Tayler right into buying it 😂 So we decided on one color to both use: Alien, the beautiful, almost lime-green shimmer. Then we used a random numbers generator to pick 4 other shades to create a look (separately)! This is the first time I’ve done this and I will say, it was fun! It made me think more creatively. The numbers Google pulled for me were:

12 (X-Files), 8 (Martian Soil), 18 (Black Hole), 10 (Phone Home)

At first I struggled. These are not shades I would have picked for one look. However, I think I actually made it work! Afterward, I realized I was actually very lucky. There are a few shades that really would have been hard to incorporate lol.

First, I used Phone Home all over, kind of to set the primer but also for my main crease shade:

Then I used X-Files in the outer corner and blended up just a little into the crease. I struggled a little with keeping this as a noticeable color once I put the black on, so I kept going back and packing it on.

Then I went for it lol. I don’t use black eyeshadow that often and for a long time it scared me, especially before I knew how to blend 😂 I blended Black Hole onto the lid but not clear into the inner corner.

Then I added Alien! I like that the black made it grungy!

Finally, I added Martian Soil to underneath my eye because I had no idea what to do with it!! Here’s the finished look:

I also threw on the JSC Velour lipstick in Posh Spice with a gloss over top. What do you guys think? Where/how would you have used all of these shades? What’s your favorite shade in the palette?

Tayler’s look ended up so pretty! Definitely check it out 😊

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien Palette was the first palette I opened from my Christmas gifts, and I would have been happy only getting this! I wanted it the second I saw pictures of it 😩 There are so many shades that I loved, and there was more than one green! Greens are my favorite shadow color.

I forgot to get a picture of the box, but it’s a pretty shimmery pink. My only complaint on the whole entire palette so far is that it is a little not-stacking friendly. I don’t want to say it’s clunky because it is a thin palette, but the eyes pop out on the cover. It looks and feels good quality and I think that adds to that feeling, but I could have gone for flat eyes.

The palette is held shut with a magnet, and there is a decent sized mirror in it. And look at this shade range!! 😭

I was initially so drawn to it for the obvious greens: Alien, Area 51, and Abduction. However, Phone Home and X-Files are my favorite kind of neutral mattes, and I also fell in love with Martian Soil, Space Cowboy, and Probe upon usage.

There’s a perfect “setting” color (Titan), a good brow/inner corner highlighter (Pluto), and darker mattes (Black Hole and Ghost OG).

Some of the swatches look wonky but I think it’s me because all of the colors I’ve used so far are great. They are pigmented, and they blend. I didn’t notice any patchiness. I actually managed to use a lot of colors so far. Please keep in mind I do my idea of “mom makeup” in that I have limited time in between mom things like baby crying haha…so they are not blended to perfection.

Titan, Martian Soil, and Space Cowboy

Abduction, Flying Saucer, and Probe

Titan, Phone Home, X-Files, and Moon Rock

Titan, Area 51, Ghost OG, and Alien

If you get the chance to grab this, I highly recommend it! What do you guys think of this palette?
