Hi darlings! ❤
A couple of weeks ago I got the new neon pigments by Sugarpill Cosmetics, called ElectroCutes! 😀 I have been drooling over these since I saw a picture of them from IMATS LA last summer, and now they are finally available online! I’m so excited! ❤ I’ve used these since I got them, to test out which primers are best to use with them, how long the glitter in them lasts and their overall qualities!
Swatches of the pigments:
The bottom picture is taken in direct sunlight, so I had to add it! The shadows look soooooo sparkly and beautiful when the sun hits them! ❤ I’m using Too Faced Shadow Insurance as a primer and NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk as a base.
Supercharged: Sugarpill describes it as a “flaming coral orange with blue/green/gold color-shifting super sparkles.”
It’s a gorgeous peachy color and it glows under UV blacklight! I found this one to be the least pigmented of them, but the one I would use the most in an everyday look!
Sparkage: Sugarpill describes it as a “radioactive lime green with blue/green/gold color-shifting super sparkles.”
It’s definitely a vibrant lime green shade!
Love Buzz: Sugarpill describes it as a “brilliant neon hot pink with yellow/orange/red color-shifting super sparkles.”
This pigment also glows under UV blacklight. I think this one is my favorite, just because I love pink and this is the most vibrant, almost electric hot pink I’ve ever seen! Perfect to create a Barbie look with, for Halloween! 😉
Hi-Viz: Sugarpill describes it as a “blazing neon yellow with blue/green/gold color-shifting super sparkles.”
It’s a medium yellow shade and I think this is the most beautiful yellow shadow I have!
Hellaronic: Sugarpill describes it as “fluorescent indigo with red/purple/blue color-shifting super sparkles.”
It’s a dark blue, which is a bit more on the purply side than their Royal Sugar chromalust. I love them both!
These are super vibrant, neon eyeshadows with lots of glitter in them! They are very pigmented, (not a surprise since it’s Sugarpill 😉 ), and they cover your lid very well! I would use one of these colors at a time when doing a look and I would place it on the lid. This is because they don’t blend very well together as you can see in my look below, (I wasn’t able to blend the blue and the green on the lid very nicely together.) And also, when you blend them out in the crease, most of the glitter dissapears. But one color on the lid will look amazing! ❤
If you want a really intense color on the lid and all the glitter to stay put, I would use a glitter adhesive! I used Violet Voss’ adhesive and it kept everything in place! If you are going to place any of these pigments in the crease or want a more subtle lid color (with that I mean less glitter), then use your favortie primer first followed by a white base, like NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk or the white base in the MUFE Flash palette! This is because, with a primer and white base it’s easier to blend them, while with the glitter adhesive they are impossible to blend. So adhesive on the lid and white base in the crease! 🙂
As I say in the video, 60% of the glitter remained on my eyes with the use of Too Faced Shadow Insurance and the white base from the Flash palette. The rest of the glitter will fall down to your cheeks when you apply the pigments, so I would recommend you to apply your foundation at the end, so you don’t ruin it with the fall out! 😉
When I read the first reviews on these pigments, I read that all the glitter fell off, that they were very hard to work with and so on. So I got so happy when I tried them out myself and found out that a lot of the glitter stayed on (not when you blend the color out in the crease), and they weren’t as hard to work with as I though! They are like every other pigment I’ve tried when it comes to the application. And that these, that are neon, are as easy to apply as other pigments, is a huge step forward for neon shadows in general! 😀
Some more general information:
All of the pigments are vegan and all, except from Hellatronic, are lip friendly. They are safe to use on Canadian and European eyes, but people in the US should use these on their own risk, since “the FDA has not yet tested or approved the use of neon pigments in the immediate eye area”, (from Sugarpill’s website.) These are great to use on the lips mixed with a clear lip gloss or on the nails mixed with clear nail polish! They are also awesome to use as body paint… I have to try some kind of more creative paint on my face with them hehe 😀
Each jar has 5 grams of product in it and they cost $16 each, so you get a lot of product for your money! 😉 Sugarpill ships worldwide and they have a $6 flat rate shipping for US. orders. You can use my affiliate link if you want, to get these pigments, HERE ^-^
