Product:
The matte shades in this Blood Sugar Palette are very pigmented but some powdery with the redder shades. Smooth to apply but better to pat over a primer because you can blend them away because of the higher pigmentation. They are true to pan, for this reason, shade-wise, but the colourants themselves are hard to get right as these red shades are sheer by nature.

The Shimmer/Metallic shades are smooth, buttery, and richly pigmented. 

Colour:
Glucose is a pure white with a matte finish.
Sugarcane is a pale pink-beige with a matte finish.
Cake Mix is a light beige with a matte finish.
Ouch is a camel brown with a matte finish.
Donor is a bronze gold with a metallic finish.
Intravenous is a warm chocolate brown with a matte finish.
Candy Floss is a pale cotton candy pink with a metallic finish.
Tongue Pop is a pale peach with a matte finish.
Sweetener is a peach with a gold shimmer finish.
Cavity is a vibrant cool tone pink with a matte finish.
0 Positive is a dusty purple taupe with a matte finish.
Root Canal is a bright violet with a matte finish.
Prick is a tropical red with a matte finish.
Cherry Soda is a blue-based true red with a matte finish.
Fresh Meat is a bright mulberry with a matte finish.
Blood Sugar is a rusty red with a metallic finish.
Extraction is a plum with a matte finish.
Coma is a bright eggplant with a matte finish.
Wear:
Most I get about 8 hours of wear without a base with these eyeshadows.

Packaging: The palette is a simple cardboard box cover in what feels like fabric faux leather casing our side and polyester red inside fabrics. This is a larger/thicker palette due to the jewellery box nature of the design with the hinge clasp closures and raised palette tray. It gives the palette a feel of a medical tool kit. It's housed inside a VHS jacket which is a weird mash out of styles, and it totally dig it.

Verdict: 
This Jeffree Star Blood Sugar Palette is surprisingly a very workable daytime palette with an injection or red tones to bump it up to something different. I actually think this is a relatively subdued palette from the brand and a nice permanent palette in their line to get the job done with some really lovely pops of colours.

The only cringe-worthy moment in this palette is the shade name "Coma" as a Type-1 diabetic this is a real fear to fall in a diabetic coma or passing out due to low blood sugar and dying due to my body and brain shutting down. I personally don't find the joke of eating yourself into a "Diabetic Coma" funny however given my situation now and just cringeworthy before I was diabetic 3 years ago. Overall the names in this palette I don't find them traumatizing because this is my life ;) all of it!!! But bringing up a serious issue like that as a joke really concerns me on a personal level. And I know that Coma is not the same as "Diabetic Coma" but when your TALKING about blood sugar levels that were my mind goes. Also Coma, in general, is NOT a place ANYONE wants to be in period.

Now that said I like this palette, and very much in my palette rotation now. I just had to bring up my very mixed feeling on not so controversial name (that is a cultural joke) that brings up nightmares for me.

Interesting enough the Blood Sugar 2 palette is coming soon, and I'm curious where they are going with it. ;)
