Sugarpill Cosmetics Eyeshadow Review
Brightest. Colours. Ever!
So a few months back I finally caved and purchased some Sugarpill Cosmetics eyeshadow. What is Sugarpill you ask? It happens to be an independent cosmetics company run by the most colourful person you will ever meet. Amy Doan, also known as Shrinkle. She launched her eye shadow collection 2 years ago around Valentine's day and has grown to amazing proportions. Her shop Sugarpillshop.com now includes pressed eye shadows, loose eye shadow pigments and some of the most amazing false eyelashes ever! When I placed my order I opted for the basic set. The thing most newbies to Sugarpill always purchase. The pressed shadows.
The Pressed Shadow Basics
Now even though the "basics" as I like to call them have actually changed as new colours were very recently released I will explain really quickly what I chose.
The Burning Heart Palette, The Sweetheart Palette and Bulletproof single eye shadow. These 3 items would get you all 9 pressed eye shadows at the cheapest rate. The eye shadows separately run about $12 a pop and each palette will set you back about $34 each. Which may sound insane for four eye shadows, but if you think about it logically you can convince yourself it is worth it pretty easily. Most M.A.C. eye shadows will probably set you back about the same or more depending on what you choose, but you receive more product with Sugarpill and the colour payoff is worth twice that amount in my humble opinion.
They also have an amazing array of loose eye shadows. Only one of which I own, Absinthe the most amazing lime green ever! Each of which will also set you back about $12 each. The quality is not lacking there either.
Incredibly Adorable Packaging!
Sugarpill is also known for the cutest packaging alive! The box you receive has the Sugarpill kitty logo on the outside and the most amazingly bright hot pink tissue paper lovingly wrapped around your items on the inside. Each item is also printed with the logos and information instead of just slapping a sticker on the outside of the packages. She took real care making sure everything was just right. She also HAND SIGNS a thank you note on each and every order form, sadly I did not get a picture before I misplaced them. *insert sad face here*
I'd buy them a million times over...
I have no complaints whatsoever on the quality or the quantity of the products she puts out. You can tell she takes pride in what she does. Even the customer service is handled with care. My bulletproof eye shadow sadly took a plunge in a solid piece right out of the pan when I opened it a few days after purchasing it and it was promptly replaced free of charge; shipped and received that same week.
I hope to one day soon own the newest addition to the palette family the Heart Breaker Palette. With four new colours just as opaque and amazing as the nine previous. There are millions of swatches, tutorials, and reviews online and each one is just as amazing as the next. Some of which are on their website. I don't think I could hold a candle to some of the amazing talents found on their website. WOW, just WOW.
Are You Bold Enough?
If you think you are bold enough, love fun colours, or even want some amazing shadows to use as a pop of colour to a neutral look then these are for you. It's definitely a purchase you won't regret.
