Review & Swatches: Sugarpill Cosmetics

Well HELLO gorgeous!!!!!!!!!! This was a much anticipated haul. After seeing some outstanding reviews of this indie brand called Sugarpill, I had to check it out. Oh it is sooooooo flipping worth every penny. Amy, the maker of the brand, is a goddess. Seriously. How did she make these colors?! She’s a super sweetheart and she really stands behind her products (vegan btw). Now I’m a girl who knows her shadows. These go at the top of my list. Best ever. My only complaint is that there aren’t more colors for me to invest in LOL!!

OMG everything about this line is sexy. The boxes are sexy. The website where I ordered it all from is sexy. The packaging is sexy. The names are sexy. The colors….blow. my. mind.

My order came in a beautiful box stamped with the oh-so-cute Sugarpill logo (cute kitteh!).

Everything was wrapped in hot pink paper and there was even a little note hand singed by Amy!

See the palettes and swatches of the pigments!!!  

Dollipop, Afterparty
Midori, Tako

Ok, so along comes my order and I’m snapping pictures overjoyed…but then…

Oh nooooooooos! A casualty!!!!!! :-((( I was super bummed, but I took these pictures and sent Amy an email. She responded the NEXT morning and sent a new palette out to me, which got here like two days later. Like I said, GREAT customer service!

I’m awesome?! No no, Amy! YOU’RE AWESOME!!

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?! A TRUE RED!!! Seriously unprecedented. I’ve never seen a true red eyeshadow that was MEANT for the eyes. No joke. The colors are smooth, crisp, pigmented, blendable, and huge (way bigger than MAC)! There’s really no point in swatching them since the colors look exactly like how you see them here.

But here are the loose shadows. You get a whole 5 grams of product in that jar. Good thing too, or else I’d be so tempted to order backups! :-P Yeah, I took a lot of pictures. They’re well deserved. Each of these swatches are done first dry (no primer), then wet using MAC Mixing Medium (water base).

Junebug, Goldilux, Royal Sugar

Hysteric, Lumi, Stella, Magpie (on bottom)

I couldn’t be happier with a purchase. I’ve already created several looks using some of these colors and cannot wait to show you. Really, I’ve been super impressed with all of the indie brands I’ve ordered from lately: Meow, High Voltage, Sugarpill, Fyrinnae. I hope to try some more too – Evil Shades, Aromaleigh. And of course I am already plotting my second Sugarpill order… :-)

    Great review! And how amazing is goldilux?
    Amy’s an outstanding business person! What other makeup company would send out an extra palette? None that i know of!

    Thanks! Oh wait until you see a look I did recently with Goldilux! It is an amazing color. You’re right – her business is top notch!

    Hi, re makeup, do you have any suggestions on how to create the gothic look with eyeliner? I have tried many but been not very successful unfortunately. Thanks!
