Sugarpill Penelope Look

When I was shopping for Sugarpill's new shades, I didn't look too closely but just grabbed anything that looked interesting. Penelope was a really different type than what I expected. I thought it would be a coppery dark brown, but when it arrived and I tried it, it behaved like loose glitter when applied on top of regular primer.

In the jar it's a semi loose shadow and super duper metallic. On regular primer it really doesn't perform too well and wants to scatter everywhere. So sticky primer it is! I dug up my Pixie Epoxy by Fyrinnaes, which is my favourite sticky primer. It's a bit thick and you can feel it on your lids, but it makes sparkly shadows look absolutely awesome. I wanted to see what it could do with Penelope and I was not disappointed!


In my pictures Penelope is a bit more orange than in natural light. It's a true, metallic copper, not glitter, not shimmer, but copper. It doesn't have a mica base like most shadows, which makes it all about the metallic finish. A gorgeous shade and very steampunk!


I'm wearing Penelope on top of Pixie Epoxy with a touch of Sugarpill Bullerproof (matte black) in the crease and on lower lid. I lined part of the lower lid with black gel liner, applied mascara and a pair of Red Cherry false lashes.







I'm not sure what to pair Penelope with, do you have any suggestions? The coppery browns I like might look very dull next to it. The complimenting colour to orange would be a deep, dark blue, but I'm bad at using blues, they make my eyes look a bit dull.

    1. Kiitos! Mulla on ollut punaisella värjätty tukka viimeksi teininä, mutta se on aina ollut sellainen väri jota ihailen, erityisesti luonnonpunaiset :)

  2. That looks great. I don't think I could handle loose glitter, though!
