Sugarpill Stella Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow

Sugarpill Stella Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow

Sugarpill Stella Chromalust Loose Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as “blackest of jet blacks, bursting with rainbow diamond sparkle.” It is a really intense black, particularly when used wet, and it is a blue-based black, so it does have a tendency to pull a little bluish when photographed. It has multi-colored sparkle, though green, blue, and fuchsia seemed to dominate when I swatched. Stella has a really smooth texture; the base color is nearly matte, while the sparkle adds a lot of dimension. When applied dry, the sparkle seems to disappear a bit, but when applied damp or wet, they seem to stick and play a larger role.

Stella is one of the darker blacks I've come across, and if you like a little sparkle with your black, then this might be one worth checking out! (If you prefer just black, check out Bulletproof by Sugarpill!)

    that would make a gorgeous liner!!

  2. Stella’s one of those easy to dupe colors that I don’t think I’ll be getting. I’d rather save my money for Sugarpill’s other lovely shades.

  3. Oh, nice timing, Christine, I was wanting to see a really great swatch of this yesterday! It looks like a night sky!

  4. Gina

    Ughhh loveeee!

  5. These pictures do not even do justice for this product even when Christine takes great pictures. Not even the swatching for the color. This color and the brillance of it, in my opinion is not duplicable even with the high end brands. I am very fussy. I only buy if something is unique…not the fad…or because it is LE. I am too old to join the gravy train. Got to spend my money on other stuff other than makeup. This product is very unique and is one of the better colors by Sugar Pill.

    I really love Sugarpill’s stuff, and it’s the only cosmetics brand whose entire line was so good that I purchased almost every product. I’m missing a couple of the Chromalusts, but Stella was one of the first ones I purchased after they went live. I looove it as a liner, and also blended out into a smokey eye with a sparkley grey. As much as I love their Chromalusts, though, I really, REALLY love their pressed shadows – sooo much color. I wish Amy would hurry up and release more shades!

  7. I have royal sugar, Tiara and Lumi..I just love all of them..i am defenatly going to buy this…slowly collecting all.

    im always scared to use loose eyeshadows that are really dark because i feel like they will make a huge mess on my face and my vanity

    • Try them damp/wet :) You can also lay a towel (paper or otherwise) in case you’re nervous about spilling!

      • Beto Kylie

        What steps do you take to apply these or MAC’s mineralize eyeshadows damp/wet? I don’t want to hurt my brushes or the shadows, so I have no idea what to dampen or what brush to use…! I’d love your expert tips!!! 😀
        By the way, thanks for reviewing and swatching this!!! All the new loose powders from Sugarpill definitely caught my eye when they were posted on their website, so I’m happy to see this post!!!

    I have this and I’ve used it as a liner with a foiling medium. It works really well as a liner. :)

  10. It looks just gorgeous in the pot, and swatched too!

    I like it a lot, have played with it at Sephora – but not come home with it despite the reasonable cost…only because I have a couple others similar and I don’t use them enough to reach for another. I have a UD or maybe it’s a Too Face that has all kind of glitter shades in it that is dark black. Then I have a couple blacks with silver& gold shimmer – some with iridescent. I recently cleaned out my eye shadows and really am trying not to dup things I have I can use to get the same look – I have to major downsize everything here soon and go to a total minimalist being. Make up I can sort thought – donate, give to friends to go through and toss easy – nail polishes – not as easy for me to part with! The rest in my house hold – getting easier to part with. I need to get down to studio size abode and the ability to pack/move in a week if I needed to.

  12. Pretty, but would it look much different from, let’s say, UD Oil Slick when applied?

  13. Jules

    Can you pretty please do a FOTD with this pigment? I’m having a hard time thinking of what to do with it but it’s so pretty.

  14. Hope

    this seems pretty close to UD’s oil slick, too bad I have a million of them because it looks prettier than oil slick.

    Christine, have you tried Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy? it’s a fantastic product, it goes over eyeshadow primer as a foiling method. it prevents fallout so it’s really nice for UD shadows. you’ve probably heard of it before, but this post got me thinking how much I want to try Sugarpill to see how they look over PE.

  15. I’m requesting to see some of your looks with more Sugarpill! :)

  16. Oooh, I love this. This is what I wanted MAC Black Tied to be (only with silver sparkle)!!

    A quick question – what sort of brush do you use when you use loose powders wet? And how do you apply them? I often have trouble using shadows wet when it comes to blending them, especially with other shadows I’ve applied dry (if that makes sense)?

  17. sasha

    Definitely NOT duplicative. It’s soooo beautiful but can be intimidating. Yet it somehow mixes beautifully with so many other colors. I have done looks using this with MAC’s violet, Sugarpill’s Darling, Goldilux, Junebug, and Poison Plum so far and people have stopped me to examine and compliment on Stella! A must have for the SP collection!

  18. Stephanie M!

    That is seriously gorgeous!

  19. Mo

    I think I need this in my life!

  20. I have this shade and I really like it, even when I compare it to other blacks with rainbow sparkles :) (and I have a few!)

  21. Rebecca

    I bought this on the spot after reading your review :)
