Review: Sugarpill Addicted To Pretty Palettes (Burning Hearts, Heart Breaker, Sweetheart)

sugarpill-addict-to-pretty-palettes-burning-hearts-heart-breaker-sweetheart-esybabsy-review


O alas, these palettes are on the top list of my 'must have item' for like, years. But I just bought these about six months ago, and just collected the mood to review them now, since I was too excited trying them on.

FYI, Sugarpill launched several series of pressed eye shadow palettes, one of them is Addicted To Pretty palettes, which is divided into three series: Burning Hearts, Heart Breaker, and Sweetheart palettes, which are loaded with bright and vibrant colors.

PACKAGING
These babies comes with a carton (cardboard?) palette and a large mirror inside. Each palette has 4 shades in it. The palette is secured with a magnet inside and an extra carton for extra safety. The packaging design might seem a little too fancy for some people, with blues and pinks everywhere, not to mention an illustration which I assumed as the picture of Shrinkle (Sugarpill CEO) and her white furry friend. A design which can fulfill the taste of a clown whore, like me.

OK, so I am now trying to start reviewing each color. I promise, although I'm such a fan of Sugarpill, I'll try to be as honest as possible.

Sweetheart Palette

Top to bottom: Dollipop, Afterparty, Midori, Tako




Dollipop has a matte finishing. It the cutest and dreamiest vibrant hot pink I have ever seen. I just can't compare the color and its pigmentation to any other pink shades in my collection. Simply amazing! Afterparty is a bright turquoise blue with a semi-pearly sheen on it. The pigmentation with or without base are equally amazing. Midori is a vibrant green. The finishing is semi-pearly, just like Afterparty. The pigmentation is medium, but looks better with an eye base. Tako is legend. It is a pure matte white. It is mentioned as one of the best white ever, but too bad I don't experience the same thing with this one.

Burning Hearts Palette

Top to Bottom: Poison Plum, Love+, Buttercupcake, Flamepoint




Poison Plum is a deep purple with a semi-pearly sheen. I sometimes mistake this with 2AM, and visa versa. But Poison Plum is definitely a lot darker. I often use this to create bruise effect when making SFX make up. Great pigmentation and even greater with an eye base. Love+ is the brightest and truest red I have ever own. But the pan is kinda hard, not buttery and its pigmentation is surely need a good eye base. Buttercupcake is a bright matte yellow. Yes it is opaque and quite pigmented for a yellow eyeshadow. Although it is not really pigmented, but so far this one is the most pigmented yellow shade I have ever seen. Flamepoint is a vibrant matte orange. I can say Poison Plum is the most pigmented color from this palette, while others are so so.

Heart Breaker Palette

Top to Bottom: Mochi, 2AM, Velocity, Acidberry 



Mochi is a matte minty green/blue. It has a very nice pigmentation despite its light color. I wear this quite often because it compliments my skin tone. Like, I can wear some blue without looking like an '80s movie star. 2AM is a matte purple with iridescent result. It has a great pigmentation and this one is a more wearable dark purple compared to Poison Plum. Velocity is a vibrant blue. It's not very pigmented when applied without eye base but surprisingly turns to a very opaque result with eye base. The comparison is so dense. This is the least shade to my favorite list because it's too bright for me. Acidberry is a matte lime green with a slightly pearl sheen. Not very good pigmentation without an eye base.

So overall, I like them a lot. I just can't decide which one is better. As I mentioned before, they vary in texture and pigmentation. But one thing I know, although some of them are quite powdery but I don't experience any fall out during the application. The pans are quite hard and not as buttery as some other brands. Several colors will also leave stains on your lid like 2AM, Dollipop, and Poison Plum. Basically any color with pink and purple hues in it will stain.

Each palette cost USD 34.00 on its official website and around IDR 490K when sold in Indonesia. Damn... I bought them when it was IDR 380K something (they were on sale).  I know the price is actually out of my league and I saved up a lot to purchase them. I definitely won't use this to do my clients' make up. Nope. They are just... well, toys exclusively for me.

In short, these palettes are good toys for you who love playing with bright colors. Although there are several dupes in the market, like creative Me Palette by Coastal Scents or Sleek Eyeshadow palettes.

Below is a collage of eye makeup I created using these palettes only. Except for the eyebrows and eyeliner, of course.

Review: Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow (Love+)

Have you ever stood, as a 10 year old girl, in front of a shop window staring eagerly at the latest issue of your favorite Manga. Cold hands, heart beating fast, but you could do nothing since you had no money. You only had that IDR 50, enough to buy gorengan and es mambo. And the Manga would cost IDR 3,000. I wasn't poor, but born a tight budget family.

Well, more or less, the same thing happened to me when I saw this eyeshadow. And since I'm a grown up now, money wasn't the issue, but the goods availability. It is so hard to find this indie brand in Indonesia, you only can buy this through online shop, pre-order. 

So when I saw this on sale in Facebook, I immediately bought it. It is used item, but I don't mind. It's still like new anyway. And when the package arrived, the same blood-rushing experience happened again. LOLs.



Cute packaging, huh? The box somehow reminds me of matchbox. The clear cap makes it easier to look through the pan and find the color you want IF you have more than one.




The ingredients.



It contains 3.5g product. Not as petite as it looks.



The packaging somehow reminds me of MUA single eyeshadow. But the black part of the packaging felt smooth and velvety on your finger tip. It may look cheap, but once you touch it, you know it's not.



Rubbed my fingers on the pan and got this pigmented red mark on my middle finger. Sorry, I used my middle finger, it was a coincidence. The pan somehow felt HARD, but not powdery nor buttery. And it's matte. But, somehow, I need a lot of rubbing to achieve one solid color swatch.



The color looked a bit different due to the usage of primer. With primer, the color changed into a pure red shade, but without primer, it looked a bit orange.



  1. Run with tap water and swipe once with a cotton pad. It faded a bit but the one with primer wasn't faded out even a little.
  2. Swiped once with Makeup Remover. Loreal Eye & Lip Makeup Remover really is a great product. :D 




This picture is just a comparison of color amongst my red eyeshadow collection:
  1. Sugarpill (Love+)
  2. Ellianto
  3. Coastal Scents (120 Ori Pallet 1)
  4. Inez Sparkling Loose Eyeshadow (Glamorous Red)
  5. Viva Cream Eyeshadow (Red)

I was a bit surprised, when swatching the color without primer, Viva Cream Eyeshadow is a pretty good dupe for Sugarpill. LMFAO.

One thing I'm a bit confused until now, is the reason why I wanted a red eyeshadow so bad due to the fact that I only wear eyeshadow occassionaly. 

***

My EOTD using only this eyeshadow. Love the pigmented color but I made a mistake by using a white tone eyeshadow base (NYX eyeshadow base in Matte White) so the shade somehow changed into a bright sultry pink instead of a true red. Next time, I'll use my skin tone eyeshadow base. Or, maybe, because I use the white cream too much? IDK. I still need more practice.






My take:
  • Very pigmented color, especially with eye primer
  • Hard texture
  • Unusually bright tone and intimidating for some people
  • Petite packaging but generous content (3.5g)
  • Long lasting
  • Vegan cosmetic
  • Easy to remove (I use Loreal Eye & Lip Makeup Remover), I don't know if you use other remover, though. But using Loreal, I only need one cotton pad to remove the whole two eyes makeup.
  • How much: USD 12 on its official website. But also available in several online shops with price variety. But since it's preloved, this cost me IDR 95K only.
Score:
4.877 out of 5

And, yes, I'll buy this again someday. But I will try some other color.
