Sugarpill Chromalusts: Paperdoll, Tipsy, Weekender

Sugarpill Chromalusts

Sugarpill Chromalust ($12.00 for 0.19 oz.) recently launched seven new shades, and I have three of them to show you today: Paperdoll (lovely lavender with dazzling shimmer and sparkle), Tipsy (high-shimmer true grass green), and Weekender (metallic blue-violet with intense sparkle and sheen). All three shades are also vegan, just for reference! I hope to review the last remaining shade soon.

Chromalusts are loose eyeshadows that are extremely soft and smooth because of how fine these loose powders are milled. The three shades featured in this post are vegan, for reference. They can be worn wet or dry, though I tend to prefer them wet as a base, but they do work nicely dry–though better over a stickier shadow base.

butter LONDON Pillar Box Red Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a cherry red with a decadent cream finish.  It’s nearly pigmented enough to use only one coat, though I swatched with two.  This is only a slightly pink-based red but it’s much closer to a true red than blue or orange-based.  Though I’ve never seen a pillar box in real life, as far as I can tell, this seems quite similar in color!

my thoughts on the formula: This cream finished polish has such a smooth, maneuverable formula–nicely pigmented (needed only two coats) and applies beautifully without bubbling or streaking. It wore for a full seven days without chipping.  The formula was thin without being watery and made for really easy application.
