Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow
Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow

Sugarpill Mint Soda Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “metallic mint with a sparkling gold sheen.” It’s a brightened golden chartreuse green with gold sparkle and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied dry, while it intensified to mostly opaque pigmentation when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft, silky, and smooth, but there is a lot of sparkle to it, which I did see fall out with while worn, though the color didn’t fade for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Hug Life Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “vibrant seafoam turquoise with green and gold undertones.” It’s a lightly brightened, aqua green with subtle warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, and it was fully opaque when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was very finely-milled and smooth. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Clickbait Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “metallic mossy teal with golden sheen.” It’s a softened, medium bluish-teal with a strong yellow gold shimmer-sheen. It was fairly opaque even applied dry, though it was smoother and more metallic when applied damp. The consistency of the powder was silky and soft that was finely-milled. This shade wore well for eight hours before creasing slightly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Holy Ghost Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “sparkling deep sea blue with aqua and green reflects.” It’s a muted, medium-dark blue with subtle cool undertones and a pearly sheen with lighter aqua flecks of sparkle. The texture was very finely-milled and silky, which made it easy to blend out. It was semi-opaque when I tried it dry, though it was buildable. I had better pigmentation when I used it with a dampened brush, but it was easier to blend when it was dry. It lasted for eight hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Grand Tiara Loose Eyeshadow ($14.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “bright metallic silver.” It’s a light-medium silver with a metallic finish and very fine shimmer. It was semi-opaque applied dry and fully opaque with a very metallic sheen when applied damp. It wore well for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Strangeling Loose Eyeshadow
Sugarpill Strangeling Loose Eyeshadow

Sugarpill Strangeling Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “deep metallic violet with aqua reflects.” It’s a brightened violet purple with cool undertones and a metallic finish. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer, and applied damp, it was mostly opaque. It was a more buildable product rather than richly pigmented right out of the jar. The texture was very soft and silky, and it blended well on the skin. It wore well for eight hours before creasing slightly. Makeup Geek Caitlin Rose (P, $9.99) is darker, less metallic. Make Up For Ever D926 Blueberry (P, $21.00) is warmer. Makeup Geek Pop Culture (P, $5.99) is less metallic. theBalm #33 (P, $6.50) is more iridescent. Urban Decay Betrayal (LE, $18.00) is more iridescent. Urban Decay Omen (P, $18.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Charmy Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “pinky peach with iridescent fuchsia reflects.” It’s a light-medium coral with warm undertones and gold and fuchsia shimmer over a satin finish. It had good pigmentation both wet and dry, though it applies deeper when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was very silky and finely-milled, while going on evenly and smoothly. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading. MAC Mortal #3 (LE) is similar. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P) is lighter, more shimmery. Make Up For Ever I802 Coral Pink (P, $21.00) is pinker. Make Up For Ever I752 Electric Coral (P, $21.00) is warmer, brighter. L’Oreal Cherie Merie (LE, $7.99) is darker. Urban Decay Freelove (P, $18.00) is more shimmery. MAC Paradisco (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Dynamo (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #2 (LE) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Penelope Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “metallic copper.” It’s a brightened copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had good pigmentation both wet and dry, but it was a richer, more molten copper shade when applied with a dampened brush, and it had a more metallic finish. The texture is smoother than a lot of loose coppery shades like this, but it wasn’t as finely-milled as a shade like Charmy, and it is better pressed into the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Unleashed (P) is lighter. Makeup Geek Flame Thrower (P, $9.99) is less metallic. Colour Pop Sequin (P, $5.00) is a cream product, more muted. Urban Decay Lucky (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever ME728 Copper Red (P, $21.00) is lighter. Makeup Geek Vegas Lights (P, $6.99) is less metallic.

MAC Amber Lights (P, $15.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sugarpill Countess Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “metallic maroon with a splash of aqua reflects.” It’s a muted, burgundy brown with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was semi-opaque applied dry over skin, and it was fully opaque when I used a dampened brush. The color started to crease after eight and a half hours of wear, but the texture was soft and easy to work with. Makeup Geek Showtime (P, $9.99) is warmer, browner. MAC Plummed (LE, $15.00) is less metallic. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #3 (P) is less metallic, warmer. Tarte Plum Away With Me (LE) is slightly warmer, less metallic.

Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Eyeshadow Palette
Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Eyeshadow Palette

Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Eyeshadow Palette ($34.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes four full-sized eyeshadows (so it’s a $48 value). You can also purchase each of the eyeshadows individually for $12. The colors are interesting pops of color that are fun to see and try to use together. The texture of the eyeshadows seemed a little drier than usual, particularly with Hotsy Totsy, which was dry and almost clumpy–very odd for a pressed eyeshadow. Surprisingly, Frostine was the best, despite being such a light shade (and purple, always a challenge). They wore well once on the eye, but there is a lot of fall out during application that makes it a messier palette to use.

Kitten Parade is described as a “shimmery peach with opulent golden sheen.” It’s a coral-pink with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was slightly dry and powdery, which made the color payoff weaker (semi-opaque). It wore well for eight hours. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P) is darker, more orange. Too Faced Paper Roses (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. Clinique Pink and Plenty (P, $17.00) is a cream product. Urban Decay X (P, $18.00) is lighter. Lancome Kitten Heel (P, $19.00) is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Frostine is described as a “frosty pale lavender.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned lavender with a subtle sheen. It had fairly good pigmentation, and the texture was a smidgen powdery but very silky and smooth, so it was easier to work with and blend on the skin. This shade didn’t start to fade until after eight hours of wear. Milani Bella Violet (14) (P, $3.99) is darker. MAC Great Beyond #3 (LE, $21.00) is lighter, warmer. Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk #1 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter. Fyrinnae Unicorn (P, $8.25) is lighter. MAC Digit (P, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Beautiful Iris (P, $15.00) is darker. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #4 (LE) is darker, more shimmery. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Datura (P, $14.00) is more shimmery. Inglot #440 (P, $6.00) is brighter, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

CandyCrush is described as a “glistening mint pearl.” It’s a cool-toned, aqua blue with a frosted, silvery-white shimmer. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was dry and looser, so it felt a little crumbly applied. This resulted in a fair amount of fall out during application and made it harder to apply to the skin, as the powder didn’t bind well or smooth over the skin easily. Once on, I was able to get eight hours of wear out of this shade. Stila Aquamarine (P) is less shimmery. Dior Dulcinee #5 (LE) is less shimmery. Too Faced Joy (LE, $16.00) is similar. theBalm B2 (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Lucky in Love (LE, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Hotsy Totsy is described as a “sweet magenta with iridescent fairy sparkles.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool undertones and pink and white shimmer over a matte finish. The texture was drier and powdery, where some of the powder would clump together while you were applying the rest. This is a shade that needed to be patted on very gently and packed into place to get decent vibrancy out of it. Applied, the color stayed on well for eight hours. Too Faced Monaco (P, $16.00) is more shimmery. Sugarpill Smitten (LE, $12.00) is cooler-toned, more shimmery. Too Faced Bright Eyes (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Too Faced Totally Fetch (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Woodstock (P, $18.00) is more shimmery. MAC Tease with Ease (DC, $21.00) is darker, more shimmery. MAC Brash & Bold (P, $21.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
