I feel like I have been seeing this shadow everywhere! I gave into the urge to impulse buy this after seeing it mixed with clear nail polish to create the most stunning, mirror-finish gold nails I have ever seen. After seeing it in person, I have no regrets. I put it on as soon as I got it in the mail, and it just makes blue eyes look phenomenal. I also have to give props to Beautylish's fantastic speedy shipping and top notch customer service. With my new found love for Sugarpill and Beautylish combined, I feel like I'll probably own all of these shadows in no time.
Great Pigments and best of all major staying power!
I recently received Goldilux and Magpie for Christmas and they are awesome! The pigmentation is great, they go on smooth, and they last like no other shadow I've ever used. I'll be purchasing more of these in the future that's for sure.
It's seawater in a jar!
This color is gorgeous. It has the beautiful turquoise shimmer, that reminds me of sparkles on sea water. It goes great with many different eye shadows for a highlight/accent color. This also looks great and not overly done as a cheekbone highlight if you're feeling daring or wearing a certain blue/green look. This is a truly unique color.
Addicting doesn't seem a strong enough word...
As far as indie makeup companies go, this is hands down one of my favorite FAVORITE places to shop! All the Chromalusts are finding their way into my collection, and for good reason. The colors are soft, highly pigmented, a dream to blend, last for hours with NO fading (at least for me), sparkle like you wouldn't believe, don't "muddy"... And Golidlux is a MUST-HAVE gold in your collection. If you love color and aren't afraid to go bold with your looks- Sugarpill is the answer!! Pictured here I've used Asylum, Lumi & Goldilux. Asylum is also used on my lips.
Red, She Said...
I've been a makeup artist for 16 years working with people from all walks of life, using just about every brand you can think of. It was always hard to find a red eyeshadow until one of my co-workers suggested Sugarpill, I was very wary about loose shadows, but when I tried the sample, I fell in LOVE. Asylum is crazy red...put me in a straightjacket with my lids coated in this beautiful color!!! So true, rich and pigmented, I almost ate it!!! Definitely will be collecting :)
I've never been one to buy every single color of any brands eye shadows or makeup items in general, but I have the last few Sugarpill loose eye shadows in my shopping cart as we speak. The colors are beautiful, blend like a dream, stay forever and are just impressive. I received a few today and am dying to try Goldilux. My faves so far are lumi, starling, darling and royal sugar, but know the rest aren't far behind. The customer service provided by Beautylish has also been outstanding, love the handwritten notes and wrapped products. Love, love, love all around!
Stella is described as “the blackest of jet blacks, bursting with rainbow diamond sparkle”, which is true - upon opening the jar, the rainbow sparkles jump out at you! Unfortunately, after a couple of hours wear, the rainbow sparkle dulls, leaving you with a primarily black shadow. I feel like if I’d put on another layer, this wouldn’t have been the case, but I didn’t want to go too black. Stella, for me, looked best when swatched dry - perhaps it was simply my technique, but that’s something you’ll want to decide upon yourself. Stella is a vegan-friendly shadow and cost $12US for 4.5 grams of product - trust me, a little goes a long way with this shadow, so it'll last a long time. Definitely good value for money in my opinion!
This is an amazing pigment! It was soft and blended beautifully. As for Paperdoll, it is a very soft lavender. It takes an additional layer or so to get opaque covering, but it's worth it! It stayed all day and didn't crease when used with a thin layer of primer underneath. Also, I didn't experience any fall out. However, it is very important that you pack on the pigment before you start blending. This way, you get the most out of the product. Overall, i'm excited to try out more colors!
bright colors, great value for generous packaging, velvety smooth application
All of Sugarpill's eyeshadows are pigmented and pack lots of color whether they're used dry or wet. These all have a shimmery luster to them, feel velvety smooth, and have lasting wear time. I didn't focus too much on packaging since this post is already a bit full from the different colors, but as a customer, I feel like there was so much time and care put into each individual product. Whether it's the printed logo (instead of a sticker) on the lids, the generous packaging, the little decals specific to each name, or the color lineup offered--Sugarpill ChromaLusts are simply wonderful. Plus, given what you receive in terms of the quality and amount of product, 12$ for 5 grams is priced fairly and is way affordable compared to major labels. I should mention that I purchased all of my Sugarpill loose shadows discounted either during an awesome sale (20-30% off!) at the official site or from ShanaLogic. Absinthe - lime green Birthday Girl - light pink Darling - teal Goldilux - the prettiest metallic gold you will ever see Hysteric - purple Junebug - forest green Lumi - versatile color that can be white with teal reflects or a gorgeous teal-blue when used over a dark base Magentric - dark bright hot pink/magenta Magpie - absolutely gorgeous dark blue with a lighter sheen and turquoise sparkle Paperdoll - soft lavender Royal Sugar - brilliant blue Stella - black with multicolored sparkle Tipsy - light green Weekender - blue-purple with what looks like silver sparkle I think all the colors are so pretty and complement each other really well. I like using the darker colors wet as eyeliner and though I enjoy the entire range, my favorites are Lumi, Magpie, Royal Sugar, and Stella.
I have 6 loose eyeshadows starting from the first row left: Junebug, Magpie, Stella. Then the second row left: Goldilux, Darling, Royal Sugar. For 5 grams, $12 is such a generous price. Not only are these shadows affordable, Sugarpill makes the most unique loose shadows and one of my favourites is Royal Sugar. How can you miss that amazing royal blue and not put it in your shopping cart?! When the shadows are applied wet they bring out the full potential of the colours and they are to die for. Goldilux is very metalic and will catch anyone's eyes and stella is perfect for a sexy sparkly smokey eye or to deepen the dimension in any look. Junebug and Magpie are also both gorgeous and I highly recommend them! <3
