Here is a post on Sugarpill swatches and mini review~
From their website
"Sugarpill Cosmetics is a custom line of vibrant, richly pigmented, velvety pressed eyeshadows and sparkling loose powders.
However, I always wished I had control over the makeup’s quality, brand image, and the products and colors offered. In 2005 I began plotting a new line of luxury eyeshadows in my own formula, unique colors and dream packaging. Sugarpill was born in 2010, offering dramatic shades with long-lasting wear that remains flawlessly bold throughout the day and night. I hope I've made those drag queens proud!
As you can see that Sugarpill are independently run cosmetic company based out of Berkeley, CA every item are made in California USA! Sugarpill products are animal cruelty free, carry range of very vibrant and colorful pigmented eyeshadows!
Sugarpill creator and owner Amy aka "Shrinkle" was kind to sponsor some of Sugapill eyeshadows for me to review!! I have been hearing lots of nice things about Sugarpill so I was excited to try for myself ^__^ Disclaimer: Sugarpill items were sponsored as a review purpose, I am not paid in anyway to review and feature this items here on ekiBlog :)
I am all for creative individuals to make their dreams to come true~ it is really inspiring to see people who follow their dreams and makes them become reality. I believe everyone should follow their dreams, because what is truly important in life? is to DO what makes YOU truly HAPPY in the end. That is where the individuality in a person comes in, not everyone are the same, our dreams and how we see the world are different. Just dont listen to what other people tells you to do with your life, always follow your heart♥
I am inspired By Amy, I love the world she has painted, very kawaii, colorful and HAPPY. No matter how old I get I could never grow out of loving the innocence of cute things, I've always viewed my life as this world as a magical place almost comical/fantasy world that is why I love cosplay and art.
on the topic of kawaii...
One reader have said to me in a past comment:
Q:"Really I can't understand that passion to look as artificial as possible, forming yourself to silly "kawai" puppets, with grinçant voices, only attracting otakus and perverts.
Is their no feminist consciense at all ?? Don't you want to be taken seriously for what you can or is looking Kawai really everything all you can?
Ok well to answer your question:
A: I choose to follow ART in my life, I want live my life around art, anything creative and sort of UN-NORMAL or you might say unnatural. Growing up I was always sort of different, I have always had a pencil in my hands as long as I can remember "drawing" at every moment imaginable. I grew up in Japan so manga/anime/loving kawaii things was a normal thing, so with that said I dont see anything wrong with loving kawaii or looking kawaii. when I look at cute things it give you a warm and happy feeling on the inside, everyones view of what is beautiful and pretty are different mine happens to adore kawaii/cute more than anything because it make ME happy.
I do not look the way I do to attract opposite sex, certainly not looking the way I do to attract otaku and perverts as matter of fact 99.9% of the people I interact on blog/yt/twitter are girls/ladies, I CHOOSE to look as you call unnatural because that is how I choose to look, just because its not in a natural look does that makes me a less of a woman? Just because I like cute things and choose to look so called "kawaii" over other types of looks are putting other woman down? Do we have to look certain way to please other people? Just because we were born with certain shade/color in our eyes/hair/skin we have to live with that and can't change it to our likings? what comes down in the end is DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY. I dont judge on other people in the choice of what they want/choose to look like that is their choice and that is what makes them happy, bottom line is why do everyone have to fit into this mold of so called "normal or natural" because no one is "normal or natural" because there is this thing called INDIVIDUALITY.
Next time please stop judging people based on the exterior, looking certain way isnt a bad thing its what makes each people unique and different, it is certainly not pleasant to be judged in a harsh matter like this when there no motive behind in the choices on looking certain way,,, I choose to look like this because life is short and it is one of the things that makes me HAPPY :)
ok sorry about that,, ^^;; back to a post~
here is what came with the package, some loose eyeshadow samples, decal sticker and nice business cards! Very thing nicely designed~
Chroma Lust in
*Metallic deep magenta with a dazzling turquoise sheen*
*Brilliant, highly-reflective metallic gold with breathtaking shine. The brightest gold you’ve ever seen. The micro-fine particles are super tiny, so this looks amazing sprinkled all over as body shimmer too.*
*now white with turquoise sheen and flashing bursts of blue and green. When worn over a dark base, this complex white transforms itself into your new favorite blue eyeshadow.*
Very surprise with Chroma Lust loose eyeshadows~ very vibrantly pigmented, sticks to the skin really well, super sparkly and beautiful. The Goldilux are super pigmented GOLD shade with beautiful gold shimmers, the Magentric are vibrant pinkish purple shade with hint of blueish green shimmers and the Lumi vibrant white shade with luminescent light blue hue very unique and pretty shade.
Again very kawaii packaging~ so much attention to each details and design I love it~ ♥
The palette come with a mirror on the top flap and again the eyeshadows are SUPER pigmented and Vibrant!! I was so amazed at hovibrant they are with one swipe and the texture are super smooth and milled very finely, they are as you see in the palette shade once in skin. The Dollipop and Tako are matte with no shimmer or shine, the Afteparty and Midori has a light pearly shimmer to them which creates a beautiful finish!
Vibrant plum purple shade with hint of pink undertone, but the color seems to get deeper deep purple once you build it very pretty purple shade eyeshadow for sure :D
all the shade together~ this swatches are without eyeshadow primers so you can really see that they are BRIGHT & VIBRANT on their own imagine how it will be with a primer even more colorful! If you are looking for an eyeshadows that pops with vibrant color and are made with quality, I highly recommend Sugarpill~♥
