Sugarpill Swatch-fest

I must have been very nice this year because Santa brought me a lot of awesome gifts! :D Or at least I have the most wonderful boyfriend in the world who knows exactly what I like! Anyway, I got some stuff from Sugarpill (and also some from Illamasqua) that I, the duteous makeup-blogger I am, had to swatch for you. You probably have seen swatches of these products already, but if not, just keep reading.

I got the two palettes that I didn't have; Sweetheart and Heart Breaker. As if those awesome palettes weren't enough Mr. Noire also got me the gorgeous pigment Stella, and Sugarpill provided a sample of their golden beauty Goldilux. Happy madam Noire! :D

Let's start with the Heart Breaker palette that contains the eyeshadows Acidberry, Velocity, 2AM and Mochi. 


Acidberry
This is seriously the perfect lime-green eyeshadow! The color is a little bit more sheer than I expected (but bear in mind that these swatches are made on my arm; the eyelids are oilier which "enhances" the eyeshadow). On top of NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk it becomes more vibrant and gets this delicious sheen that reminds me of a polished Granny Smith apple. Yummy!

Velocity
This color reminds me a lot of Makeup Geek's Neptune, but is a little bit more pigmented and maybe a little darker as well. It is a matte royal blue that I bet will look stunning on brown/black eyes!

2AM
2AM is the perfect marriage between purple and pink. It is a matte magenta that when applied over NYX's Milk gets a gorgeous bluish sheen.


Mochi
Mochi was the reason for my falling in love with this palette. It is insanely pigmented - then I really mean insanely - and I find this beautiful minty sea-green rather unique. It is matte but in the same time there's a slight pearly sheen that enhances the color (at least I imagine it does... ;) ) and adds to this eyeshadows oceanic soul.

Let's move on to the Sweetheart palette... It inhabits the eyeshadows Dollipop, Afterparty, Midori and Tako.


Dollipop
Pink, pink, pink! It couldn't be more pink even if it tried. I've been longing for this eyeshadow for ages and now that it's finally mine I'm not disappointed. :) Use it alone to get a hot pink statement shadow or mixed with Tako to tone it down into a more baby pink cutiepie.


Afterparty
Bright turquoise-ish blue with a semi-pearl sheen; that is, it is not entirely matte but not very shimmery either. I don't use blue eyeshadow that often but this one is so pretty I might change that habit. :) I'm looking forward to try it out in some kind of gradient-look with Velocity and Mochi.

Midori
Very pretty emerald green. I must admit that this is the one I was least curious about when I drooled over the palettes at Sugarpill's webshop.

Tako
Matte white. The formula is perfect and the pigmentation amazing! I mean, look at it!

And now onto the loose eyeshadows. :)


Stella
Honestly, no picture can make this loose eyeshadow justice. It is just... WOW! It is a jet black powder inhabited by sparkles in all the colors of the rainbow. Loads of sparkles. LOVE! By the way, did I mention the sparkles? :)
Vegan


Goldilux
I can't but agree with Sugarpill's own description of this shadow; "The brightest gold you've ever seen."  I have tried a lot of gold eyeshadows but none have had the same shine as this, which is exactly what makes this eyeshadow special. I have to buy the full size of this eyeshadow some time.

With that said, we've come to the end of this Sugarpill swatch-fest. Have you guys tried any of Sugarpill's eyeshadows? Which one is your absolute favorite? Which one is number one on your wishlist? :)

I hope that every one of you have had a great Christmas! :) Thanks a lot for reading!

  6. I am so keen to get my claws on some Sugarpill! Thanks for these swatches, it has really helped. It shows their colour payoff so well. My favourite from these swatches is Dollipop. However I have my eye on the burning heart palette. xxx Lilly
