Sugarpill Mochi, Buttercup and Afterparty Eyeshadows

 

Sugarpill Cosmetics is the feature company for our reviews today.  They are known for their over the top, colorful eyehadows that are unique and at the same time cruelty-free and vegan.  Their stand on animal cruelty is highly commendable.  I’ve always heard about Sugarpill from fellow Beauty bloggers and Cosplay enthusiasts.  But believe it or not, this is my first time to do a review on some of their most celebrated colors.  I did purchased Buttercupcake awhile back from Beautylish, but have never worn it.  Mochi and Afterparty, were purchased from Sugarpill’s website last week.

 

Note for Swatches:

All swatches were done in Macro shots both Indoors and Outdoors.  Indoors used a yellow incandescent bulb which tends to appear a bit warmer than they actually appear.  Both locale were shot both in parallel and at an angle.  These all come in 3 different swatches: (L-R) applied with a damp brush with no base, applied over Maybelline’s Color tattoo (base) and applied over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy (sticky base).  My skin tone is warm, Mac NC 43 or 45, depending on the type of foundation used.  The Color Tattoo bases used are: Too Cool for Mochi, Barely Branded for Buttercup and Electric Blue for Afterparty.

 

Sugarpill Mochi:   B+

It is described as a matte mint seafoam with a slightly pearl sheen.  I didn’t notice any sheen when applied without a base nor over a sticky base.  However, it did show a little bit, once applied over a frosted base.  This shade manifests a mint teal on my skin.   This do leave a minor stain on my skin.  It feels very powdery with a few fall outs once applied.  Indeed, a very common problem with matte eyeshadows.  If applied over a primer or sticky base, fall outs were significantly reduced.  But the pigmentation is to die for.  A few sweeps will go a long way.

Sugarpill Buttercupcake:   A+

It is described as a brightest bright matte yellow with awesome opaque coverage.  This is phenomenal and it does live up to what the company describes it to be.  It looked semi-matte warm yellow with a slight shimmer on my skin.  This feels like butter and just glides with my brush once applied.  It had a barely noticeable fall outs.  The pigmentation is bold but not too bright which makes this wearable during the day.  I think my warm skin tone softens it from being too luminous.

It is described as a bright turquoise with a semi-pearly sheen.  It appears to be a medium cobalt blue with shimmer on my skin.  It does leave some stain on my skin.  It’s actually my favorite from the 3.  It glides like butter with my brush with zero fall outs.  I love how its ardent pigmentation accentuates my warm skin tone.  Very wearable during the day, so there’s nothing to be afraid of.

My Thoughts:

I gave them an overall A rating, with Mochi pulling them down.  I just had a difficulty with this color compared to the other two.  I was even surprised and impressed with Buttercupcake for its intense color pay off and ease of application.  Afterparty is another winner, for its full opacity with no single fall outs.  You need to apply over a primer or sticky base when using Mochi to minimize fall outs.  I love aquas and teals and I hope Sugarpill will change the formulation of Mochi and made it the same as Buttercupcake and Afterparty.  All 3 lasted for about 8 hours with no primer and over 14 hours with a primer before creasing starts to appear.  All 3 left minimal staining on my skin.  I will purchase more colors, beyond any doubt, from Sugarpill.  I just became a convert and started to strongly believe in this company.  Kudos to you Amy!
