Next up on the dock for playing with makeup was the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Mini Breaker palette. Which is the smaller of the two palettes that they released in the Summer 2019 collection. These are three of the looks that I have created using the palette and I’ll have a brief review of the palette at the end of this.
Look 1: Drop of Honey
I let my mom pick the theme of the look for this day as we were talking about my upcoming move while I was working on my makeup. She chose the main two colors of the look and I did the rest of the eyeshadow around those shades: Double Scoop and Slice. I started out with Double Scoop throughout the crease then used a mixture of Hot Fudge and Orange Crush to create a subtle halo effect with Slice in the center. Next I smoked out the lower lash line with Double Scoop and Hot Fudge. For my waterline I have on ColourPop Gel Creme Pencil in Punch, and the ColourPop BFF Mascara in Yellow Goodbye on the lower lashes. As for the false lashes on the top those are Azeredo Cosmetics Doll Lashes. I used a bit of Black Moon Cosmetics Moonlighter in Centipede for an inner corner and brow bone highlight. I also have on Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Fully Nude on my lips.
Look 2: A Sunset Moment
The next look I did was a combination of the yellow with purple creating this almost sunset moment on my eyes. I started out with Double Scoop in the crease then layered a little lower the shade Orange Crush. Next on the inner and outer corner of my eyes I used Purple Punch. Then across the majority of my lids I used Bite Me with Oral in the very center. On my lower lash line I used Purple Punch then blended it out with Orange Crush then Double Scoop. On the inner corner of my eyes is the shade Slice. Then I just used some Essence Volume Stylist Curl & Hold Mascara and NYX Epic Ink Liner. On my lips is Flower Beauty Miracle Matte Lip in Soft Berry.
Look 3: Something Simple
This is not the third look I created from this palette, I did create another very similar but didn’t end up liking any of the photos I took that day, so the following day I did it again though slightly differently. I have no idea what to call this look, as it was just something simple to get ready for work. For this look, I started off with Bubble Gum throughout my crease then deepened it with Foreplay. Next I used Oral across my entire lid then used Purple Punch in the outer corner. On my lower lash line I used Bubble Gum and Foreplay to round out this super simple look. I am just wearing Essence Volume Stylist Curl & Hold Mascara on my lashes and have ColourPop Ultra Blotted Lip in Cypress Chill on my lips.
Final Thoughts on Mini Breaker Palette
There was little to no fall out when I used the shadows or if there was any, I ended up picking it all back up when I dipped into the pan again to move onto the other eye. There is some staining due to the fact this is a vegan formula. As for blending, I had no problems with any of the shades. They all worked together nicely with full pigmentation as I created each look. I didn’t experience any patchy shades as I created the looks, so overall I give the palette a thumbs up.
Is it worth the $28? While I do love the palette, I can’t say it’s worth that price tag for several reasons. Two of the shades come in the main Jawbreaker palette or I have in other palettes already. Plus there are only 9 shades, which is a bit much for that amount in my opinion. It’s half the cost of the full palette and only has a third of the number of shades. So, it makes these even more expensive than the ones that come in that palette. Each shade in the Mini Breaker palette is around $3.11 while the ones in the Jawbreaker palette are $2.42. Plus, ColourPop has similar tones in their 9 pan palettes that are only $12 so you could get two of those that make up this one palette (It’s My Pleasure with Sol would get you a fairly similar shades with an additional 9 shades). If I hadn’t gotten the Mini Breaker palette in the bundle with the Jawbreaker palette, I probably wouldn’t have gone for the Mini Breaker palette at all. As the bundle was $75 making the shadows across both palettes only $2.27.
