|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.|
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.|
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 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 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 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.
