New Sugarpill Eyeshadows!

Sugarpill recently came out with some new shades and I stayed up late to place an order as soon as they were released. The package arrived yesterday and I just love each and every shade! Here are swatches and pictures of the shadows in jars.

Pastelle, Strangeling, Penelope, Countess and Charmy

I'll go over each shade briefly. Most are permanent additions to the catalogue, but one is a limited edition shade. The swatches are done over Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Pastelle in the jar.


Pastelle

The only limited edition shade of the bunch, Pastelle, is a pale pastel pink with a load of gold sparkles. It's light and easy to use for many looks. The sparkle fades a bit when blended. Sticky base works best for Pastelle, because the microglitter has the tendency to get everywhere.

Charmy in the jar.


Charmy

A medium peach shade with golden shimmer. Charmy is quite red based, not pastel and while it is bright, it's not neon-bright. Works well for defining the crease with Pastelle on the lid. 

Strengeling in the jar.


Strangeling

Strangeling is replacing Hysteric, which is discontinued (see my Hysteric swatch here!) Compared to Hysteric, Strangeling is warmer and has more red microglitter in it. A very usable medium purple that will surely see lots of use in my collection!

Countess in the jar.


Countess

Countess is a metallic wine red. In the jar it has lots of blue glitter, but that hardly shows up on skin. Some reds make you look ill, but on my skin Countess work really well. Works with Charmy especially well.


Penelope in the jar.



Penelope

Penelope sure is an odd one! In the jar it's in a semi loose form. When used over regular primer, it acts like a glitter and goes on very sheer. On a sticky base it's a gorgeous, very shiny copper. Most Sugarpill shadows list mica as their first ingredient, but these metallic shades (Grand Tiara, Goldilux and Penelope) have it lower in the inci list which explains the sheerness. Penelope is a gorgeous true copper, perfect for steampunk make-up looks! It cannot be used on regular primer as a crease shade, unless you apply a dark shadow first and Penelope on top. It's best used on its own over a sticky base, or in the same way you would use glitter to enhance a loot.

  1. Uuh miten upeita! Mikä kamera sulla muuten on, joku lähilinssi ilmeisesti myöskin?

    1. Kiitos! Mulla on kalustona Nikon D80 ja siihen linssinä Micro Nikkor AF-S 40mm. Se on ihan loistava meikkikuvailuun, potreteissa sumentaa taustan nätisti ja tarkentaa kuitenkin tosi lähelle. Muistaakseni minimietäisyys kennon ja kohteen välillä oli 12 cm, eli saa kaikki glitterit ja kynsilakat hienosti kuvattua!

  6. The strangeling shade is gorgeous. I normally use Barry M but I have so many good reviews of Sugar Pills make up that I might have to treat myself when I get some cash.
