Gorgeousness from Sugarpill Cosmetics

As most of you know by now, I'm a real color junkie. I should actually start typing that with a capital C and J, you know. Not so long ago I came across another makeup brand which was completely new to me, called Sugarpill Cosmetics. Sadly I don't remember where I first came across these products, but the brand immediately caught my attention. Not only did it have the cutest logo ever - how do one resist a logo with a kitten? - and the colors were bright and bold. For some reason I decided not to purchase anything from Sugarpill at that time, but lately reviews and looks have kept popping up everywhere, and the colors are completely mesmerizing!

Yesterday I read a review by Julissa at Rebellious Makeup, and I was completely sold. Would you look at those swatches? So now I'm craving the two palettes "Sweetheart" and "Burning Heart", in addition to the matte black "Bulletproof" - that way I'll have a complete set of Sugarpill pressed eye shadows. I'm still not comfortable with loose shadows, so I decided to leave them alone even though the colors are gorgeous.

Sugarpill Cosmetics: Burning Heart & Sweetheart

Look at these palettes! Simply amazing. At first I was a little thrown off by the fact that these palettes are made of cardboard as opposed to plastic, but they are in fact magnetic and refillable which quickly made me change my mind about them. And they look so unique! Each palette comes with four shadows, and each shadows is a staggering 4 grams or .14 oz (M·A·C eye shadows 1.5 grams or .05 oz, while MUFE eye shadows are 2.5 grams or .08 oz) and to me that's good value for your money.

I'm sure some would say they would never ever wear bold colors like these out in public, at least not during daytime, but I love wearing makeup that really stands out, and I would have no problems wearing these. Bright colors make me happy!

  1. I would love to see a pink look on you Smile. It would probably bring out the best in your eyes!

  2. Maja:
    Ja, ikke sant!

    Licota:
    I’d love to do a pink look, preferably bright, only problem is that I haven’t found a pink that shows up on my skin tone yet. Or, I have found a few.. but the ones I’ve tried is either canceled out by my yellow undertone, or they make me look swollen and ill. I’ll keep on looking, maybe “Dollypop” from Sugarpill is the one? Wink

  3. Devilcat:
    Godt å høre at vi er fler som er enige! Jeg må dessverre innrømme at jeg er solgt, nok en gang, og det hjelper overhodet ikke å se på tutorials på YouTube altså! Sugarpill will be mine. Wink

  4. How exciting!! Can’t wait til you get your package!

  5. Julissa:
    Yes! I completely agree with you, and I honestly think I’m the most impatient person in the whole wide world.. Wink

  6. You’ll love your Sugarpill! I was luck enough to get to try it when it first launched, and there’s not a product I don’t love! I have a full review and a couple looks using the product on my site, if anyone’s interested.

    BTW, you mentioned most pinks get cancelled out by your skin tone- what about using a white base under them? I’m sure Dollypop is pretty opaque (it’s one of the few I don’t have yet) but if it still turns orangey on you, try the white underneath!

  7. Jessica:
    Thank you so much for leaving a comment for me, it’s very much appreciated! Every time someone says something positive about Sugarpill I get even more excited, and now I don’t really understand why I even waited to order. I’ll be going to through your site, it looked like you had a lot of interesting posts there! Smile

    Yes, most of my pinks are canceled out on my skin tone. I remember getting MAC Expensive Pink because everyone was raving about it, and I was so disappointed when it didn’t even show up on my eyes. Sometimes it’s a b*tch having a little color. I will definitely try out a white base, thank you so much for the tip!

    If I fall as deeply as I suspect in love with my Sugarpill shadows, I might just have to ignore my fear of loose shadows and buy some of those amazing colors.. *drool*
