Illamasqua Superstition Nail Varnish

Illamasqua Superstition Nail Varnish ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright fuchsia pink.” It’s a bold, magenta pink with a jelly-cream finish. It is similar to the base color of Hare Polish Party Palace. NARS Ratin Jot is a bit less magenta (pinker). Illamasqua Obsess seemed really similar to me; perhaps a little purpler and lighter (and this has a true cream finish). If you have Obsess, I’d skip this (unless you’re a die-hard fan of Illamasqua’s formula, wear this kind of color all the time, or really want the jelly finish this has), because they are very, very similar. Deborah Lippmann Makin’ Whoopee is similar but has a shimmer finish.

Sugarpill ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

Sugarpill CrhomaLust Loose Eyeshadows ($12.00 for 0.18 oz.) currently has a range of eighteen permanent shades, which I have covered as they’ve been released. Like the eyeshadows, I wanted to re-do swatches so they can be added to the Swatch Gallery. This post includes swatches of all eighteen, as well as photos of them (originally taken when I first covered the product, so the product photos are not new).

Sugarpill Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

Sugarpill Eyeshadows ($12.00 for 0.14 oz., each) currently has a range of thirteen permanent shades, which I have covered as they’ve been released. Because the initial launch was a few years ago, I’ve been wanting to re-do swatches so that they can be included in the Swatch Gallery (which requires everything be shown individually). This morning, I was like, “DO IT!” And so it has been done. I’ve also included four shades that were more recently released in the Heartbreaker palette (which didn’t need to be redone) for completion. Note that the photos of the eyeshadow pans are old (just updated the swatches).  (There is also @#$%!, which was a limited edition shade, but need to take full photos of it prior to swatching, as I’ve never used it before!)
