Finally! Here’s my Sugarpill review! It took much longer to write than expected, so I’m sorry it’s a bit late! The Sugarpill products I’m reviewing are the two eyeshadow palettes: The Sweet Heart palette and the Burning Heart palette. Also, these five Chromalust loose eyeshadows: Tiara, Royal Sugar, Asylum, Paperdoll and Darling.
The packaging that the palettes come in is super cute and gorgeous! I love the colours and the design. The palettes themselves are really cool looking and each of them contains four eyeshadows and a large mirror. The mirror I now use every time I do my makeup. I’ve heard that some people say that the palettes are heavy and maybe they are compared to some palettes, but I’ve taken them with me a lot and never thought about the weight. 🙂
Swatches of the Sweet Heart palette:
Dollipop is a bright and beautiful matte pink colour!
Afterparty is a very vibrant, medium blue shadow, with a pearly sheen.
Midori is a very bright and pretty green eyeshadow! This colour has some shimmer to it.
Tako is a very good, matte white. You can use this for so many things: As a highlight on your brow bone, in the inner corner of your eye and on your cheekbones. You can use it on your lid and to set a white pencil liner on your lower waterline.
Swatches of the Burning Heart palette:
Flamepoint is a matte, vibrant orange eyeshadow! I think it’s a really stunning colour!
Buttercupcake is a beautiful matte yellow colour! It’s very bright and vibrant, but slightly chalky. Not a lot though!
Love + is a gorgeous, hot red! It has a matte finish with a slightly pearly sheen to it. This is a much pigmented, very true red colour! It’s the best red eyeshadow I’ve come across! Without a primer it looks very bright red and with one, it becomes more of a deep red. Also, when you fade it out, you get a very beautiful, dark pink colour!
Poison Plum: Omg! This is my favorite colour, not just of the Sugarpill colours, but my absolute favorite of all eyeshadows! It’s the most beautiful, hot purple colour ever! It’s extremely pigmented, especially with a primer underneath. It appears a little shimmery in the pan, but on the eyes it looks matte. With several layers you will definitely see the shimmer, though.
All the Sugarpill pressed eyeshadows are very bright and intense, just the way I like it! 😉 They are extremely pigmented, smooth and blend beautifully! Because Dollipop, Poison Plum, Love+ and Flamepoint contain carmine, they stain a bit. But for me, that hasn’t been a problem.
Sugarpill sells these eyeshadows in single pans as well and they are a lot bigger than many other eyeshadows! Each pan contains 4 grams/0.14 oz of product and costs 12$. That’s three dollars less than a for a MAC eyshadow pan, which only contains 1,5 grams/0,05oz of product. So you get amazing quality eyeshadows, for a very good price! Another plus is that Sugarpill does not test on animals! 🙂
Going over to the Chromalust loose eyeshadows! They come in super cute jars, where you can see both the name of the shadow and a list of all the ingredients!
Swatches of the loose eyeshadows:
Tiara is a metallic, silver coloured loose eyeshadow. It has a lot of glitter to it and is perfect as a highlight on your brow bone and in the inner corner of your eye. It works great as an “all over lid”- colour, especially to spice up a black smoky eye! 😉 Also, because of the tiny micro-fine particles, it will look great as a body shimmer. Weight: 4.5 grams.
Darling is a shimmery teal shadow. It contains a lot of pretty, turquoise sparkles! This was the absolute first colour I fell for out of the loose eyeshadows, and had to buy! And it has definitely lived up to my expectations! Weight: 4.5 grams.
Paperdoll is the cutest lavender eyeshadow! It has a shimmery finish and there’s nothing more to say about it, other than it’s just stunning! 🙂 Weight: 4 grams.
Asylum is a rusty red, metallic colour. This one is also beautiful and shimmery and I must say I’ve never seen a colour similar to it. I like it a lot! Weight: 5.5 grams.
Royal Sugar is the most gorgeous, bright blue colour there is! Honestly, I’m so in love with this shadow and it’s my favorite one of the loose eyeshadows! It contains a lot of beautiful, turquoise glitter which I could just stare at all day. I’ve used this colour for many things: As a lid colour, a crease colour, an eyeliner and I can’t wait to try it on my lips, my eyebrows and my nails! It would look amazing anywhere! ❤ Weight: 4 grams.
These Chromalusts are the Holy Grail for a glitter girl like me! 😀 They are super pigmented, sparkly and they look beautiful on the eyes! I think they’re easy to apply and to work with. To make them as vibrant as they can be, you can use a primer as a base and apply them wet.
When I bought my loose shadows, all of them weighed 5 grams. Now, the weight varies between 4 – 6.5 grams. This is because some colours are denser while others are fluffy, and this made the jars with the dense shadows seem half empty. Now, all the Chromalusts are filled to the top, and because the jar has no sifter, you have to be carefull not to spill any of the gorgeousness! 😉
The loose eyeshadows cost 12 $ each and that’s a very good price compared to how much product you get! I bought some of my Sugarpill products from www.sugarpillshop.com and the rest of them from http://www.makeupgeek.com/store/. The shipping to Norway took 1 – 2 weeks from the Makeupgeek store and 3 – 4 weeks from the Sugarpill shop. But I bought it during Sugarpill’s Pink Weekend sale, so that’s probably why the products took so long to arrive. I was really happy when I got them though, because I absolutely love all of the eyeshadows and I use them a lot! I also got a cute sticker of their logo with my package. You can see it in the beginning of this post. Pretty, right? 😀
