Just recently I posted about the Sugarpill Cold Chemistry palette. Today I wanted to talk about something a little more girly and perhaps easier to wear. I mentioned before that Sugarpill is definitely known for their bright mattes which I know isn't for everyone.
The shades are available in the palette format for around £25 depending on where you get it from. You can also buy the shadow pans individually for £9ish but buying it as a palette makes the individual pan price significantly cheaper.
Kitten Parade is described as a shimmery peach with an opulent gold sheen.
Frostine is a frosty pale lavender that almost looks to be a matte shade, it does have the slightest hint of shimmer in it.
CandyCrush is a glistening mint pearl but it looks a look more aqua blue, with a white shimmer.
Hotsy Totsy is a bright cool-toned magenta full of iridescent sparkles but an overall matte finish.
The overall feel of the palette definitely has a distinctly more girly feel to it. The mint and pearl packaging has a much larger mirror than the Cold Chemistry due to the more uniform shape of it. The kitten on the front is a cute little addition and we all know I love anything with cats on!
As for the shades, I'm struggling to pick a favourite from the first three. Hotsy Totsy is a lovely shade but a little harder to work with because it's such a bright colour. I don't want to be looking like I have pink eye.
The shades do have a slightly drier texture which could make it difficult to apply but I find the best way is patting rather than sweeping. But I use this technique when applying any shadows. They apply better on the eye on top of a good primer such as Urban Decay's Primer Potion and blend out with ease.
I really like this palette though I feel you can't wear all the shades for one eye look. Each individual shade brings a little something to a netural look when popped in the centre of the lid and they look beautiful alongside other complimenting colours.
It's definetly more of a wearable palette whether you want to do a wash of colour on the lids or a full blown dramatic eye. If you haven't tried the brand before Kitten Parade is a great starter shadow if you're not sure about purchasing the entire palette.
£24.95 / 4 x 3.5g
