Review: Sugarpill Eyeshadows ordered directly from Sugarpillshop

Dear Glamifys,

Happy Monday! It has been an exciting weekend for me since my SUGARPILL package arrived on Friday and I was playing with it on the weekend! The shipping took less than 2 weeks~ I am so excited (more excited than Archie from MAC actually haha )

Recently Sugarpill had a sale for their 3rd birthday and their eyeshadow (pressed and loose) which used to be going for USD 12 were discounted to USD 9. For orders more than USD 100, shipping to anywhere in the world is free.. So it’s a good idea to share your order to save on the shipping. 🙂

I purchased a few items : 3 individual pressed eyeshadows (Mochi, Afterparty, Midori), 1 Burning Heart pressed eyeshadow quad (Flamepoint, Buttercupcake, Love+, Poison Plum), 3 individual loose eyeshadows ( Royal Sugar, Weekender, Paperdoll) and 1 Zillionaire loose eyeshadow trio (Goldilux, Junebug, Hysteric).

You know it’s a Sugarpill package before you even open it since their famous CAT logo is printed on the box itself. Once you open it, you get an overflow of hot pink packing tissue paper. It is like unwrapping a Christmas gift.. Just gets more exciting as you unwrap each layer. The items are packed neatly and lucky me, no breakages or damages occurred.

Sugarpill included a card with a picture of Amy/Shrinkle (owner of Sugarpill) with a picture of next season’s items.. There was also a glittery sticker of Sugarpill and a sample of their loose eyeshadow, Magentric (Metallic deep magenta with a dazzling turquoise sheen).

First up! Burning Heart Pressed Eyeshadow Quad

Each eyeshadow is USD 12 but the quad is USD 34 (saves you USD 14). I managed to get it at USD 27 during the sale.

* Flamepoint – “Vibrant matte orange” Love how intense this is. The colour is buildable. Best used on a white base.
* Buttercupcake – “The brightest bright matte yellow with awesome opaque coverage” This is crazy. I have been looking for a bright yellow and usually the rest of the eyeshadows like Sleek’s Ultra Matte doesn’t swatch as accurate as the colour in the pan.
* Love+ – “Bright red! Not for the faint-hearted” One of my most favourite colours ever! Yes it’s blood red but the colour looks so pretty in the crease.
* Poison plum – “Deep matte purple with a semi-pearly sheen” This has the most sheen in the palette. Really pretty purple. A must have!
Overall, fallout is minimal if you tap off the excess before applying. Colours are not chalky. Very intense and buildable. Experiment with different bases to get varying tones.

(I used Goldilux on the main lid and Love + in the crease and outer corners. Extremely wearable for day time/ office hours look since Goldilux covered a small part of the main lid).

I had also purchased 3 individual pressed eyeshadows at USD 9 each. It retails for USD 12 without the sale.

* Afterparty – “Bright turquoise with a semi-pearly sheen” Very pretty blue. I use it as a transition colour between Royal Sugar and your highlight.

20130304-150611.jpg
* Midori – “Vibrant green with a slightly pearl sheen” Reminds me of a forest green. Very good colour payoff so be very careful to use the littlest amount on the brush then build it up as you go along.

20130304-150705.jpg
* Mochi – “Matte mint sea foam with a slightly pearl sheen” This is such a unique colour. It doesn’t look too green or too baby blue. Nice in-between colour. A little more fallout than the rest. But well worth it for the extra tapping out the excess.

Sugarpill’s loose eyeshadow pigments are called Chroma Lust. While the pressed eyeshadows are either matte or sheen with slight tiny specks of glitter, Chroma Lust are like crazy jars of pigments with colourful glitters.. MOST FAVOURITE SERIES FROM SUGAR PILL!!!!! Apply them with a wet brush to minimize fallout and give the brushes a good tap off!

I purchased 3 individual colours and I was so blown away by their colour payoff.. Absolutely through the roof ridiculous.

* Weekender – “Metallic blue-violet with intense sparkle and sheen” This is the darker purple which has a bluish tint to the purple. So so so so brilliant!

20130304-150947.jpg
* Paperdoll – “Lovely lavender with dazzling shimmer and sparkle” For some reason, I was not so enthusiastic about this colour when I swatched it. It looked so light (the shade of the purple not the payoff) and probably could be duped for one of the palettes from Sleek. I would probably use this as a highlight for the inner corner or just above the crease.

20130304-150955.jpg
* Royal Sugar – “Striking bright blue with a heavenly burst of turquoise diamonds. The perfect hooker blue for a sweet girl like you.” THIS IS THE BEST BLUE I HAVE EVER OWNED!!! Seriously OMG!!! The colour is the most intense most perfect blue you will ever see. The glitter makes it perfect for a sparkly eye.. You can use a blending brush to swipe off most of the glitter if you want a more tamed down look..( although its perfect with the glitter and all that bling haha )

Last but not least! I purchased the Zillionaire Chroma Lust Trio. I knew I had to own Goldilux and what better to have get the trio. It retails for USD 30 but I managed to get it at USD 24 during the sale.

* Goldilux – “Brilliant, highly-reflective metallic gold with breathtaking shine. The brightest gold you’ve ever seen. The micro-fine particles are super tiny, so this looks amazing sprinkled all over as body shimmer too.” I cannot rave about this more than Sugarpill can. It is like powder gold. It glides on smoothly on your eyes. My most favourite GOLD as the colour payoff is simply amazing. It is not bronzy or too yellowy. Just like a perfect 999 gold ring.

20130304-151053.jpg

* Junebug – “Luxurious forest green with a burst of diamonds” This colour threw me off. It look so tame in the pot as the green is pretty muted down. But when you swatch it. It comes out a beautiful forest green with sparkly glitter.

20130304-151103.jpg

* Hysteric – “Metallic purple with turquoise sparkles and luminous flashes of green.” This is what Electric purple should look like. In love with this purple and how bold it is.

Here are some tips to get the best out of your Sugarpill eyeshadows:
1. Use a wet brush (either mixing medium, water, personal favourite: eye drops, LA Colours eyeshadow base/seal)
2. Grab a short shader brush with tightly packed bristles to pack on the colour. Using a fluffy brush initially will just cause a lot of fall out.
3. Have a sticky base on your eyelid. I prefer using Urban Decay Primer Potion plus NYX jumbo pencil in matte white MILK. The stickier, the better. Although you would need to keep in mind that creasing can happen if you don’t use something like UDPP underneath.
4. Tap off excess from the brush before applying. Avoid tapping the excess into your clothes since they are extremely pigmented and will colour anything in their path hahahah :p
5. For loose eyeshadows, swirl your brush with the product that is on the lid. Dipping the entire brush into the jar will just cause you to pick up too much product, causing fallout and glitter rain on your clothes. Don’t waste the product since it is a keeper!

It is actually much cheaper to order from USA directly since Sugarpill provides free shipping above USD 100 including a tracking number. Some blogs/websites in Singapore are really expensive imho.

Take care!

Cheers,
Glamify Sg
