For anyone looking for a nice RED eyeshadow, and I do mean pure red, not purple red, slightly orange red, brown based red, no, RED, this is the shadow! Flamepoint is a wonderfully pigmented shade of red! The color is vibrant, as are all of Sugarpills, and a little really does go a loooonnnnggg way. These shadows pack a punch and this one is most definitely no exception.
It’s a highly pigmented and easy to apply bright yellow, which wipes the floor with a lot of other colourful mattes brands have brought out. It’s smooth so application is easy, opacity is not hard to achieve, and it blends wonderfully. My only complaint is that it’s slightly chalky/powdery in texture, but not so much that it would be a problem.
Of the Sugarpill eyeshadows I have used, Flamepoint is the absolute most pigmented of them all. They are all extremely high quality as it is, but in particular Flamepoint applies with full opacity in no time at all, and with very little effort. It seems almost too good to be true, but I really recommend you try it out for yourself, and you will see what I mean! Because it’s also so soft and smooth application is easy, and blending doesn’t pose any problems. For those who love colour I urge you to try out Sugarpill!
It’s difficult to find red eyeshadows, especially ones that are so highly pigmented, smooth and easy to apply. This particular shadow ticks all the boxes for me. Because it’s so highly pigmented it’s easy to achieve full opacity, and despite being matte it’s also easy to blend. Another bonus is that Sugarpill eyeshadows are huge, so unless you use it very frequently it’ll take a good while to use up.
The best matte purple eyeshadow I have ever used. It’s soft, smooth and highly pigmented. I never experience any problems with application – the shadow is buildable to achieve full opacity, and it also nicely blendable. One of the things I love about this eyeshadow is that when you blend it out it has quite a natural fade to pink, which means you don’t have to go to the extra effort of placing a lighter colour to help the transition. The only possible downside is that it does stain the eyelids quite noticeably. Make up remover (even ones that remove the hardest eyeliners and mascaras) cannot completely remove the stain, but a shower usually does the trick.
Lovely eyeshadow formula, generous amount in a practical package. Very finely-milled matte black. I personally bought this to use as an eyeliner. For me it is a true charcoal black in a very soft formula w/o silicone, mineral oil, or glitter (sensitive eyes).
The downside–buttery soft eyeshadow in a large pan is fragile and susceptible to cracking. My Bulletproof developed a fracture just from being in a makeup bag that never leaves my vanity. Not so ‘bulletproof’, but well loved–only black e/s for me.
