This is my new favorite red. It's a bright berry red with tons of sparkle and TONS of pigment. It's honestly one of the brightest shadows I own and I can't wait to wear it out. I don't think I'll ever hit pan on these! You need so little for complete coverage. Favorite eyeshadow formula so far.
(I also got Mochi and Velocity, which I'll review under the palette page)
This shadow is soooo pigmented. When you pack it on, the glitter stays and shines through the shadow without appearing shiny/overly shimmery. The red color is gorgeous. The shadow is soft and satiny feeling. You definitely have to tap off excess in the pan, but it's because it's not pressed so damn hard you can't use it. I also love that when I blend out the color for a lighter wash of the red, IT STAYS RED!! It doesn't blend or sheer out to an orange or pink base. That being said, the shadow blends amazingly, even with a crappy brush. My only problem is that it stains a tiny bit even over primer, but I mean that's fixable. I wish this was permanent.
This eyeshadow is perfect. The pigment is perfect. I've been looking for a red eyeshadow forever...i used to use MAC Frankly Scarlet blush when I needed a bold red...this is the only shadow i've found that exceeds my love for frankly scarlet...it's been years since i've had love like this...HA! Seriously though...it is a must if you want a red shadow...wish it was sold by itself however....
OH! MY! GOD!
this is SO buttery and pigmented! I swatched it on my arm and even my father said he couldn't believe how pigmented it was. I'm not normally a huge fan of glitter, but the glitter in @#$%! is so fine it makes the glitter more sophisticated and subtle. The color is a fabulous pinkish red. I can't even deal with how much I love this shadow. Also, it's huge! Sugarpill shadows have to be one of the best values in eyeshadows.
The description is pretty much accurate. When applied by patting, you don't lose ANY of the silver sparkle. It's buttery, blendable, and pigmented in all of the best ways possible. It's a similar red to Love + but a little darker and with added silver sparkle. This is a go to shadow for me when I'm looking for a red with a kick!
