I’m not going to lie, I’ve been pretty disenchanted with some of the Urban Decay palettes lately. They haven’t been bad, but they just haven’t had colors that made me go, “Ooh, I just have to have that!”
So, when Jeffree Star first swatched his Beauty Killer palette on YouTube, I was super excited to finally have a palette to look forward to! While there are “only” ten colors, as opposed to the UD palettes having more, the variety looked fantastic. Plus, there are three different types- mattes, shimmers, and glitters. The wheels started turning in my head as to all the looks that could be created with this palette. Holy cow!
On release day, I swear I felt like a teenage girl. Five minutes before noon (10 am Pacific), the official release time, I logged on to Jeffree Star’s site, and went to the Beauty Killer palette, which of course showed that it wasn’t available. I kept refreshing the page until it would let me add it to my cart, and I swear I screamed when I checked out and got confirmation that my order had been placed!
The website says to allow for extra time in processing for new release products, but that night, I got an email saying my order had shipped. It was scheduled to arrive the following Tuesday, but it got to me early on Saturday! In hindsight, I should have ordered the Skin Frosts, too, so I was a tiny bit sad. Until I opened the Beauty Killer palette, that cheered me up…lol!
I realized I could use at least one of the Beauty Killer shades as a highlighter, and several looked like they would really enhance a bada$$ lip look. Check out my video below to see how I used the Beauty Killer on my eyes, lips, AND cheeks! Scroll down after to see some of the fabulous looks that you can do with this palette!

If you’ve been following this blog, you likely already know that pink is my least favorite color- I just don’t like it. But, since this is the Jeffree Star palette, I just had to use the pink! Plus, it really is a great shade. The first thing I did was to use the China White all over, Black Rainbow in my crease, Star Power on the inner and outer corners, then Rich Bitch in the center of my eyelids.
You can create a more neutral look by using China White, Courtney, Vanity, and Confession.
And finally, the look I did in the video above consisted of China White all over, Black Rainbow in my creases, Expensive above the crease, blended with Princess, and Star Power on my lids, topped with Rich Bitch. I used Confession as a contour/blush, and Princess as a highlighter. For my lips, I used Urban Decay’s Matte bittersweet, with Rich Bitch on the centers to add some gold sparkle. Make sure to check out the video to see how I did it!
Overall, this really is an awesome palette- I’ve used it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. You can get it for $45 at JeffreeStarCosmetics.com.
