Sugarpill pressed eyeshadows

Whenerver I think of colorful eyeshadows I directly think of Sugarpill. Sugarpill is very well known for their amazing bright eyeshadows. That is why I wanted to try them and that’s how my obsession started. Some of the shades I own for over a year now so I thought I’d write a review about them.

FORMULA:

I definitely get why so many people love Sugarpill eyeshadows. They really are amazing!!
Especially their colorful eyeshadows – they are so incredibly pigmented!
The eyeshadows are very easy to blend and have amazing color payoff. The eyeshadows have fall out but nothing crazy.

I manly love the colorful shades though. For example the matte brown and the matte black are not as pigmented as the colorful eyeshadows. They still work great but they are not a must-have for me. I think there are other eyeshadow brands that have better ‘natural’ eyeshadow shades.
Also I have to say that the eyeshadow in ‘2AM’ is nor that great. It is not that pigmented and it can be a little bit patchy. This eyeshadow you have to build up slowly and you need to take more time blending it.
The shimmer shadesare great, too. But ‘Kitten Parade’ doesn’t have as much color payoff as the other ones. But with the right primer underneath it works great (e.g. NYX glitter primer).

PROS:

  • Very worth the price
  • Overall great quality
  • Colorful shades are my favorite

CONS:

  • ‘Natural’ shades (black, brown) are not as pigmented

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I really really like the Sugarpill pressed eyeshadows! The quality overall is great.
I definitely recommend the colorful shades. They are one of my favorite colorful eyeshadows ever!
