Yesterday I posted the fabulous new Sugarpill Heart Breaker Eyeshadow Palette. This beauty features four vivid eyeshadow shades.
I think maybe a lot of you feel how I feel sometimes when looking at these bright shades. “How the hell can I wear colors this bright and not look like a clown?” Believe me, I feel the same way a lot of times! Especially as I get older. I want to avoid at all costs looking like one of those women who looks like they are trying to look younger. No thanks!
Acidberry, Velocity, 2am, Mochi
I see Sugarpill re-tweet some seriously amazing looks people do wearing their eyeshadows and pigments, and while I absolutely love them, they just all aren’t for me. I’m not an over-the-top person when it comes to makeup. I love bright colors, but don’t feel like myself when wearing them all at once, or in a really dramatic way.
Just like not all clothing trends are for every person, not all makeup trends are either. But I did a look today using three of the four shadows in this palette and it’s bright, summery and fun, but wearable.
Sugarpill Heart Breaker Eyeshadow Collection is brand spankin’ new and awesome.
This eyeshadow palette featured four vivid and saturated shades in Acidberry, Velocity, 2am and Mochi.You can buy all these shadows separately as well, but having all four in one palette is much better I think.
I always feel a sense of pride whenever I see Sugarpill products because they are located in my hometown of Berkeley! 🙂
Do you like candy colored things? I know I do! My eyes are always drawn to bright colorful things, whether it’s makeup or painted walls or random objects.
Sugarpill’s new ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow Pigments give me plenty of eye candy and amazing opaque colors!
The seven new colors are:
- Birthday Girl – Pink with iridescent fuchsia sparkles
- Darling – Teal with iridescent turquoise sparkles
- Magnetric – Metallic magenta with turquoise sheen
- Paperdoll – Lavender with silver sparkles
- Stella – Jet black with rainbow colored sparkles
- Tipsy – Grass green with shimmer
- Weekender – Metallic blue-violet with sparkles
Let’s look at a few of these beauties!

Magentric is a really bright, pretty magenta pink, not for those who are shy! Weekender is my absolute favorite. It’s a beautiful purple/blue color. Kind of like Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie polish (minus the green flash) in a pigment. Paperdoll is also a beautiful lavender color. Darling is super pretty also, and not that crazy bright.
These were all really opaque and shimmery. Of course they can get super messy being pigments, but the color payoff is well worth it!
I am wearing Weekender, Paperdoll and Hysteric (an older loose pigment) in my October Favs video here. The liner I’m wearing is Urban Decay Lust on the top and Ransom on the bottom and waterline. Lots of people asked about that, so there you have it!
I loved the pigments I swatched before from Sugarpill, but love these ones even more. I just might be ordering the other three because they are so pretty I want ’em all!
You can find these on their website here and they retail for $12.00 each
Do any of these tempt you?
More from Sugarpill Cosmetics! This time I’ve got some of their pressed eyeshadows.
The pressed eyeshadows come in nine different bright colors. These are extremely vivid, opaque and really amazing.
Another bonus is they are Vegan. yay!
Buttercupcake is a bright matte yellow.
Love is a bright red with a slight shimmery finish.
Afterparty is a bright turquoise blue with shimmery finish.
Midori is a bright green with a shimmery finish.
L to R: Love, Afterparty, Buttercupcake, Midori
You can see just how opaque and bright these are on my skin. Midori and Afterparty are a little more “wearable” in my eyes. They seem a little less bright, though still bright, and workable. I have mentioned before that I have never really used red eyeshadow before and that’s still true. I haven’t used a ton of yellow either, unless it was a yellow-green. But I am really dying to try these on to see how I can make them work for me.
I love how satiny these are, they feel really great and seem very blendable. The colors are really saturated and pretty. The downside of these is that they are all fairly “extreme” colors, so if you are used to neutrals, then these might be a little over the top.
Do you ever wear eyeshadow colors like these? How would you use Love or Buttercupcake?
