Sugarpill Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow Swatches & Review

Happy Wednesday!

Ok today is yet another Sugarpill review. Sorry I don’t have any nails for you today, but I promise tomorrow’s post will be a GOOD one from Zoya :)

This review will be covering Sugarpill’s loose powder eyeshadows, also known as ChromaLust.

These little beauties come in 11 different vivid colors in little plastic jars. They are 5 grams and are measured by weight not volume. They are also all Vegan, in case that matters to you!

Check them out below!

Again with the adorable packaging! Love the little heart cut out showing the actual color of the shadow.

Here we have the loose eyeshadows in their little jars with the Sugarpill logo stamped on top. It’s not a sticker, which is definitely a huge plus! My only complaint about the jars themselves is that they don’t come with a sifter, so things can get messy. But that’s not a big deal.


Starling is a bright turquoise blue with wonderful shimmer. It’s bright and gorgeous!


Absinthe is a BRIGHT lime green with shimmer. I don’t own anything quite like this one and since lately I am very into green eyeshadows, this is a perfect fit for my collection.


Junebug is a dark forest green with shimmer. This one I was particularly excited about because it’s not so mind-numblingly vivid that you can’t wear it to work (if you tend to be more conservative). You can see from this jar what they mean when they say it’s packed by weight not volume. This one seems to have a lot less product than the previous two, by just looking at it.


Hysteric is a bright metallic purple with small green shimmer. Totally gorgeous, I could pull this one off at work as well!

See how the appearance of the amount in each jar differs?

L to R: Junebug, Starling, Absinthe, Hysteric

These loose eyeshadows, just like the pressed ones, are extremely well pigmented. They have a very nice smooth texture, with no “gritty” feeling or anything. I was actually a little suprised that the least pigmented one of these seemed to be Junebug and the most Absinthe. Either way they are all really nice and I look forward to wearing them on my eyes rather than hands!

You can find these on Sugarpill’s website here and they retail for $12.00 each.

How do you feel about these colors? Are you more into pressed eyeshadows or loose eyeshadows?

    Love the colours! I like both loose and pressed; for me it about the quality of the shadows than the consistency. I do like the packages again…:)

      Hi melli,

      Yeah I agree. I think I usually lean more towards pressed because usually I get so much fallout with loose. But then again loose always seem SO pigmented and pressed can be hit or miss.

      Hi Stephanie,

      Glad you like it!

  • June 30, 2010

    Junebug and Absinthe! I hope the thing from Zoya is their new collection!

    • June 30, 2010

      Hi Arrianne,

      It is one of their new collections :)

    Junebug is purrrdy. I find I get stuck in a taupe/brown rut because my eyes are so light and other colors I try look awful on me. :( But I may have to try that one!

      Hi Liz,

      You should, it’s so pretty!

  • June 30, 2010

    All of these are so very pretty. I’m really liking Junebug and Hysteric and the packaging is so very cute!

    • June 30, 2010

      Hi Sandy,

      Junebug seems to be everyone’s fav so far!

  • June 30, 2010

    I really love Absinthe the most of those, but I have all of them but Junebug. The color payoff is awesome. You should see how they shine with Pixie Epoxy. Gorgeous! To deal with fall out, I do my eyes first, clean up fallout, then do my face last.

      Hi Phyrra,

      Absinthe is really gorgeous. I can’t wait to try some more of these. Good idea about doing eyes first I always do face first just out of habit.

    How much do these “flake” off on your skin? (Fallout, that’s the word I’m thinking of!)

      Hi Krystal S.,

      I haven’t worn them yet, so not sure, sorry! I assume they would be the same as any other loose shadow though.

  • June 30, 2010

    Gorgeous shades! Junebug is my favorite of them all. I have tons of loose minerals shadows. I just love looking at the colors!

    • June 30, 2010

      Hi Lucy,

      Aren’t they so pretty all lined up together? :)

  • June 30, 2010

    Junebug is totally my kind of green eye shadow! Never tried this brand, but I really love the packaging!

    I use pressed and loose eye shadows depending on how much time I have to work with in the morning while getting ready for work. Loose shadows can get super messy, so I reserve those for when I don’t have to rush out the door.
