Hi Guys and Dolls!
After a year+ of teasing us, Sugarpill has FINALLY launched the Cold Chemistry collection. The collection is comprised of 4 cool-tones eyeshadows perfect for creating a steely-eye look, smoky eyes, or mixing and matching with the rest of your makeup collection to come up with something new! As with their other palettes, Sugarpill offers a palette of 4 shades for $34 or each color individually for $12, which I think is a great idea, because it gives us customers options. I personally love the palette- the packaging is beautiful, and I love the new shape! I hope Sugarpill will start doing all their palettes like this!
- You can buy the Cold Chemistry Palette with all 4 colors for $34 or buy each color individually for $12 each.
- In the palette or as a single, each shadow contains 3.5 grams of product.
- Sugarpill can be bought online at sugarpillshop.com or Beautylish.com
- Fabulous color pay-off
- Intense pearl/shine
- Glitter transfers well to the eye.
- Colors work harmoniously together
- I’ve been sitting here trying to think of some, and I just really love these so it’s hard. I guess they are soft-pressed, so when you touch them a lot of product comes off- but they aren’t AS fall-out happy as similar powder shadows (see my tutorial using this palette. Yes there is fall out but not as much as you’d think.
How I feel about it: These eyeshadows are bananas- Crazy color pay off, smooth yet shimmery finishes, and are a little different from your typical Sugarpill offering. I also love that you have the option to buy them as singles or as a palette, though my fave is the palette because the colors work together harmoniously.
If you were my Best Friend: I’d say GET IT! It’s a great palette for fall!
Swatched all together
I accidentally put them in the wrong order! Here I have them swatched over Lorac eyeshadow primer, but other wise, swatched dry, and with only 1-2 swipes (to make them smooth/uniform)
SOOT & STARS
Soot & Stars is a richly pigmented gunmetal grey-black loaded with shimmer. It’s hard to tell if it’s actually multi-colored shimmer or just silver reflecting colors. In any case it’s amazing, and i’m impressed with how well the glitter sticks around on the eye. On a personal note, Soot & Stars is one of my favorite Smashing Pumpkins songs, and the Smashing Pumpkins are one of my favorite bands! I’d like to think the eyeshadow was named after the song ^_^.
When someone says “Icy Frosted White” I don’t really get excited. But having good basics is just as important as having those unique snowflake colors. This is one of the best Shimmery white eyeshadows I own. In the video I described is as having a almost pink tone to it, but it really shows up on the skin silver-ghost white. I really didn’t expect to like this as much as I do, but boy, I really like this one!
Elemental Chaos is a great shimmering violet eyeshadow. It’s super pigmented, smooth and has lots of shine. I know everyone will be comparing it to Poison Plum, and the two colors are really different. Let’s be honest, Poison Plum is the best purple eyeshadow of all time: Matte with the teeniest shimmer particles that help it blend, bright as Eff, richly pigmented, and perfectly balanced between warm and cool. Elemental Chaos is Shimmery, wich teeny glitter bits that help is sparkle, not quite muted, but not bright as eff, and leans on the cooler side. I love it!
DAT GREEN! Subterranean is a frosted forest green with sparkles and a slight navy undertone. And this one is INSANELY pigmented, just watch my tutorial above. WHAT THE WHAT! This is definitely one of my favorite green eyeshadows of all time!
