Sugarpill Stella Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow

Sugarpill Stella Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow

Sugarpill Stella Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as “blackest of jet blacks, bursting with rainbow diamond sparkle.” It is a really intense black, particularly when used wet, and it is a blue-based black, so it does have a tendency to pull a little bluish when photographed. It has multi-colored sparkle, though green, blue, and fuchsia seemed to dominate when I swatched. Stella has a really smooth texture; the base color is nearly matte, while the sparkle adds a lot of dimension. When applied dry, the sparkle seems to disappear a bit, but when applied damp or wet, they seem to stick and play a larger role.

Stella is one of the darker blacks I've come across, and if you like a little sparkle with your black, then this might be one worth checking out! (If you prefer just black, check out Bulletproof by Sugarpill!)

Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze Nail Lacquer
Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid violet,” which is an accurate depiction of this shade.  It has a cream finish, applies opaque in two coats, and has a slightly jelly-like quality to me.  In some lighting, it seems like a red-based purple, but then in other lighting, it seems more blue-based.  Purple Haze’s formula was impeccable–even flow, not too thick or thin, and no bubbling.  I typically get a full week of wear with RBL’s formula.

Purple Haze

A+
The formula was so flawless--I felt like it was foolproof to apply, because it required no trickery or even patience to get just right.

Giorgio Armani Gold Blitz (5) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow

More Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow with #5

Giorgio Armani Gold Blitz (5) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a metallic, warm-toned bronze with subtle red undertones.  It’s probably one of the least exciting shades in the Eyes to Kill Intense line-up, because it doesn’t have the multi-colored look.  The color is gorgeous, but I could see this being a shade that’s more passable than the others, just because it’s a shade that most brands have some variation of.  On the flip side, it’s one of the best, in terms of quality.

It has the same rich color pay off whether used dry or wet, though it seems to be a touch darker when applied damp.  The texture is soft, smooth, and really silky–almost like a cream eyeshadow–but in reality, it’s a loosely bound powder.  I like using it alone or along with other eyeshadows, but it can be worn alone and held up for twelve hours without creasing on me (without a base).

product

#5

A+
Even though it's one of the less unique/more passable shades in the range, it is has such an amazing texture and looks as good dry as it does wet.
