SwatchFest: Sugarpill Cold Chemistry Palette


I have some fun stuff for you guys today! First of all, I just want to point out how FAST this palette got to me! I ordered it on Saturday and it got here yesterday. That was quite quick!

I have been waiting for this palette since it was first advertised, I believe many months ago, and now it's finally mine (insert evil cackle here)!!!

This is Sugarpill's Cold Chemistry palette. It is a collaboration with Amelia Arsenic, the designer of A is for Arsenic.

Isn't she lovely? Cold Chemistry retails at $34.00.

Initially, I believed the palette to be thinner, but it's a little wider than I expected it to be. I thought the shadows were smaller than all the other Sugarpill pressed shadows but I was pleasantly incorrect. The size of the eyeshadow pans are the same size of the regular pressed eyeshadows. You don't have to buy the palette if you don't want to, you can also buy the shades individually for $12.00 each.

The Beauties!

[[NOTE]]: This is the only shadow from this collection that is NOT vegan.

Swatched! (Flash)

Sugarpill is know for their intense and bright eyeshadows. For the most part, all the other shadows are matte (I believe the only exception is @#$%! and that shadow is matte red with sparkle, if I'm not mistaken). These particular four shadows have a pearl sheen. I personally love a pearl sheen, I think they're easier to blend but Sugarpill shadows are amazing anyway so I'm not surprised. These swatched like butter! They were so smooth and easy to apply and amazingly pigmented. I am not disappoint! 

I feel that for the not totally adventurous this is a good set of shadows to dive into with Sugarpill. I absolutely believe that these colors aren't too out there and can be worn to work. However, if brown and shades of beige are your everyday selection than these might be too intense for you. I don't know but apparently purples and greens are everyday colors for me haha! 

I can't wait to try these on my eyeballs! <3

You've done it again Sugarpill! Now, I can't wait for Sparkle Baby!
