Sugarpill Heart Breaker Eyeshadow Palette

Sugarpill Heart Breaker Eyeshadow Palette

Sugarpill Heart Breaker Eyeshadow Palette ($34.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes four new shades from the brand: Acidberry (vibrant lime green, matte with slightly pearl sheen), Velocity (vibrant matte royal blue), 2AM (matte purple with a slightly pearl sheen), and Mochi (matte mint seafoam with a slightly pearl sheen).

I did a super quick look with this palette yesterday, because I’ve been anticipating it all week!  My favorite shade was Mochi, because it was really intensely pigmented when I applied it, and it was soft and smooth.  I did have some powder excess that kicked up when I was working with Acidberry and Velocity, but Velocity had very little, and Velocity is the type of color that never swatches half as good as it performs during application. I’ve consistently seen this type of blue shade become beautiful, rich in color, and blendable on the lid, and Velocity is true to this, though it swatches decently.  

Acidberry also didn’t want to adhere to my lid nearly as well as the other shades!  2AM was soft, smooth, and it wasn’t powdery at all–it also had much better color payoff when applied to the lid. Purple-based eyeshadows can be horrendous, but 2AM proves that with enough skill, an excellent purple can be made.  I wore all four shades on one eye with a primer and on the other eye without a primer. It held up well both ways with no creasing after eight hours, but there was some slight (but noticeable) fading around the edges when worn without a primer.

The palette is made out of heavy-duty cardboard with a semi-matte black finish and then Sugarpill’s logo and the like on the front and back. It can withstand a lot more dropping and tossing around than a product in a plastic compact. It stays closed with a magnetic on the edge of the palette. There’s a full-sized mirror on the interior of the lid. The only thing you may find annoying is that the palette always lies flat once you open it–the mirror portion doesn’t stand up at an angle at all (I’m holding it up in the photo to get it to look that way).

Each shade is also available individually for $12.00/0.14 oz.–buying the palette saves you $14, which is like getting one shade for free, so as long as you like at least three shades in the palette, I’d opt for the palette. If you only like one or two shades, then I’d go the individual route.

Sugarpill Heart Breaker Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

A-
If you love brighter matte eyeshadows, I think you'll enjoy Heart Breaker. I love that there's no highlighter shade--just four vibrant pops of color. Acidberry was a little difficult to work in comparison to other Sugarpill shades (both in this palette and the rest of the range), so it did bring down the overall rating.

  1. I’m so glad they came out with Velocity. I do like Royal Sugar but I’m happy that they essentially came out with a pressed version! I think it’s so interesting that Acidberry swatched the best but the rest perform somuch better, I definitely wouldn’t have thought it going off the swatches alone!

    omg this is so pretty i can’t wait to get this

  3. corallista

    what a gorgeous green!

  4. JackieG24

    Where can you buy Sugarpill? Is it just an online brand?
     

  5. ashura_love

    I already own the other palettes from sugarpill, and I absolutely love them. I want this now! that blue is amazing!!!

  6. thuvngo

    I ordered it the minute it launched two days ago. It’s supposed to arrive today, and I am psyched. I’ve been waiting a while for new Sugarpill shadows.

  7. Ravn94

    Dude, whoa.
     
    Yeah, no, getting this no matter what.

  8. Love it! I can’t wait for mine to get here. They’re so pretty :)

  9. GloriaKate

    Can’t wait to get mine!

  10. Love this eye makeup look, so beautiful! The color combo looks great together too!!

  11. Lavaughn

    love sugarpill and cannot wait to get this palette that will complete my collection ( until they come out with something else hehe) ordered as soon as it launched so anxiously awaiting… thanks for the review Christine as always you are most helpful

  12. Wow this palette is so gorgeous!  What an amazing look Christine!  I think for people a bit wary of such bright colours, you can still use this for a great pop of colour along the bottom lid.

  13. liesierre

    i got mine today. woot. I love them all, but I think Velocity is just gonna need a sticky primer… its much more powdery than the other 3….that seems to be a problem with most eyeshadows in this particular shade of blue though.

  14. Terri

    That eye look is amazing!!!  You are really talented.

  15. Andrea

    Awesome!Love the look You did with these Christine! :D

  16. Caitlin Mary

    The look is stunning.  I am more of a neutral girl now but gosh the make me want to go back to fun bright colours O:

  17. gfizzle

    What an awesome look. Very cool.
     

  18. Luke

    would you say acidberry is similar (dupe?) to mac’s BITTER? Im trying to slowly replace my mac shadows with sugaprill since mac (estee lauder) is no longer cruelty free :( thanks for your as usual awesome reviews and hope you are having a fun day!

  19. BethBrootality

    I absolutely LOVE the look you did with the palette!  Great use of color!!  I’m still bummed that 2AM isn’t vegan.  =[

  20. Too bad Sugar Pill did not exist during the hey days of Cyndi Lauper and Blondie…..these look like colors of the ’80s…punk rock era.  I like Sugar Pill and I own lots of the Chromalust and one palette.  I like Cyndi Lauper when I was a college student.  Dye my hair red and put on some of these colors and I am set.

  21. Helloooo, Sugarpill! 
     
    I love how intense these shadows are – especially for mattes. Mochi’s definitely my favourite, too (I don’t understand why I’m a sucker for seafoam green, seeing as I don’t typically like light blue OR green shades, but I am), and I love how bold Velocity looks on your lids. I’d expected it to be lighter, from the pan, but it looks gorgeous! <3

  22. Alison

    What a fun looking palette!  I just bought NARS Rated X though which is similar to Acidberry and Velocity; if I ever hit pan on that I’ll be very tempted to buy this.

  23. GloriaKate

    Christine, would you say that Pivot performs better than Acidberry? I’ve been searching for this particular shade for a long time!

  24. 27blysse

    My eyes literally popped out of my head after seeing your “quick look”. I’ve heard about Sugarpill, but never really looked into them until today, and sadly, when I went on their website, I discovered “bismuth oxychloride” in most of the shades I wanted :T Super sad because that stuff makes me skin all shades of irritated!!!

  25. FaerieEvenstar

    I wondered how Acidberry compares to MAC Bitter? Thanks for the great review. Yours are always the most useful!

    •  @FaerieEvenstar Bitter is yellower!

      • FaerieEvenstar

         @Christine (Temptalia) Thanks so much! When I first saw pictures, I knew I needed to see how it compared to Bitter as I was worried it was similar and I can’t afford to double up too much! It’s so beautiful- I think Acidberry is my favourite in that palette!Will you use this palette much Christine, or are you not into bright eyeshadow much any more? x

  26. I LOVE the look you did with those colors! It’s gorgeous.

  27. Facebook Page

    Would you be a dear and compare Velocity with MUFE 159. I know some people think MUFE 159 is a dupe for Velocity – despite MUFE being more expensive – but to me the colors don’t look identical.

  28. To the person asking if this was similar to MUFE #159:  #159 is darker and bluer, less purple-toned - http://www.temptalia.com/make-up-for-ever-eyeshadows-159-167-72-118-150-blues

  29. I actually just ordered Tako from Sugar Pill and then I see this post, and now I’m even more excited to get my eyeshadow! I love the look you created- mochi is gorgeous!

  30. Holy cow Christine! Your look is gorgeous!
