Sugarpill Chroma Lust Loose Eyeshadow - Magpie, Weekender - swatches, pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

About two months ago I finally made my first Sugarpill purchase. I say "finally" because I've eyed this brand for awhile now. I only went with two shades of their loose shadows, Magpie and Weekender, but I'm pretty sure I'll be back before I know it to buy more.

Check out my pics, swatches, stats, and review...

These loose pigment eyeshadows are very nicely pigmented, especially when wet, and are vegan. Silky smooth pigments apply nicely and blend easily.

Average to above average wear, depending on your eye lids. I recommend using with a shadow primer or applying when wet.

Great pigmentation, better when wet, and of course buildable.

Sugarpill Chroma Lust Loose Eyeshadow Review:
There is a lot of positive buzz about the Sugarpill brand and I certainly will add to it. It took me long enough to try them out, but now that I have I realize what I was missing. This brand isn't for someone who likes neutrals, but I do wish they'd produce at least some other shades -- like a light shimmering champagne, midnight blue, and a charcoal gray.

I liked the way these pigments swatched and how they applied to my eye lids. They are richly pigmented but you can definitely control the color pay off if you prefer a lighter color pay off.

Overall, yes, I think these are fantastic loose pigment shadows. I'd recommend them to anyone who likes color on their eyes!

Now let me know what you think...
What do you think of these shadows? Which shade is your favorite? Do you have these? Discuss in the comments below.


  1. I have lumi and goldilux, which are both lovely. Goldilux is fantastic in how gold-like it actually is and lumi makes an excellent highlight!

  2. I have four of the shades, of which Magpie is my favourite. I also have Junebug, which is my second favourite, and Stella and... umm... the pink one - the name escapes me at the moment.
    Very cool makeup!!

  3. These colors looks so rich and pigmented. So gorgeous!

  4. These colors are so rich and pigmented. So gorgeous!

  5. They are so pigmented! I love magpie, its a gorgeous color.

    Also have to add your photos are always magnificent!! What kind of camera do you use? And do you use a light box? The lighting is so perfect. Currently, I wait to do my swatches with the few hours I get with mid-day light. Which is highly impractical since Im normally at work during those hours. Id love to get some tips!

  6. @ Sarah: I used to have my own photography studio (I did pin-up, glamour, boudoir style for women), so I use my photography equipment for all my photos. My camera isn't even the best there is; it's really out dated compared to many cameras out on the market now; mine only has 10 megapixels. I have a Nikon D80 and I use my studio lights. The only time I use outdoor lighting is to show holographic polishes.

  7. Oh wow that sounds awesome, im not sure in the past if you've posted photos from your work, but it'd be cool to see.

    I think you've confirmed that it would be a good investment to buy a table top light box/lights.

  8. @ Sarah: It's fairly easy to make your own light box, but of course buying the ready kits are easier. I use studio lights, which are not table top (they're on light stands), and I use soft boxes on them. I use a dining room table as my photo area and a white back drop to photograph items on. However, some items that are either clear or white can be hard to see against a pure white backdrop, so I also use sheets of poster board in colors (I have black, blue, pink and yellow) so no matter what I can show the product in a great way.

  9. I just found a tutorial that seems pretty easy! Thanks! I know what I'll be doing this weekend, haha.
    take care.
