Blogging Day 211: Fun With SugarPill!


My Bestie recently went shopping @ Sugarpill and she let me play with the make-up she bought! They are amazing colors. If it wasn't for the fact that I am going shopping tomorrow for make-up, I would be ordering some of the glittery awesomeness myself.

I love the packaging designs. Very Gothic Princess.

Now, let's see what she got!


This is the 4-Color Palette / Cold Heart.

  

I put the quarter down to give a size reference for how big these items are. The colors are Poison Plum, Bulletproof, Tako, and Afterparty. I have swatches which I will show you at the bottom.


This is a a very beautiful hot pink color called Dollipop.


I love this color, not my favorite from this pick. But, very Barbie.

Now off to my favorites. The Sparkly Loose Powder!


This is Magpie. A beautiful dark blue/greenish color. For some reason I think greek goddess when I see this color.


This is my second favorite Magentric.

Sparkly pink goodness.


Now, Paperdoll is my favorite color.


Beautiful! I love wearing pink, but with my eyes, purple looks amazing on them. 

Plus, this is a perfectly pastel color for spring.


Last, but not least, Goldilux.

A beautiful splash of gold for your eyes. Very Ke$ha.


Now for the swatches.  First set of swatches are without eye primer.

Now using Too Faced Shadow Insurance, which I think I may be converted. I normally use Urban Decay, but I used my friends primer since I forgot mine. I took these pictures at work :)

I think I may have to do an experiment to see which works better.

Does anyone have any preferences?


Now, doesn't the primer make a difference. I would definitely recommend using a prime. It would help keep your eyes shadow from going into your creases.

Hmmm... I'm liking the gold more and more.

I love the blue! It is so electric!


Now there is only one problem. It is not with the loose powders, but with the pressed. There is so much color/pigment that it stains your skin when you use a primer.


This is a picture about 5 hours later and multiply washes with warm water and soap.

I did eventually use Lancome's Eye Make-up Remover and all but Dollipop was removed. I tried to take a picture, but it is too feint to for the camera to pick-up, but still there.

Of course, your thinking, maybe the primer is just that good. Yes, that could be true. But, I did not have a problem washing off the loose powder when it was on the primer.

All in all, besides the stain factor, amazing colors and I will be buying the loose powders.

Anyone else use Sugarpill and have the stain problem?  Is it really that big of a deal? My bestie doesn't seem to think so, besides the next day your just going to cover your eyes with my eyeshadow anyway.

I'm glad that you had fun playing with my toys! Dollipop does stain the eyelids a tad but the color is so pretty, who really cares? Not I said the cat! I just noticed from your swatches that Tako is almost as pale as you are! lol!
