Halfway through Sugarpill week! Today, I have the Sugarpill Sweetheart palette to show you. Though I love all the palettes to bits, this is probably my second favorite of the bunch. (Burning Heart, which I’ll show you tomorrow, is my favorite.) I think of all them, however, the Sugarpill Sweetheart palette is probably the most “versatile.”
I say that because this is the only palette which includes a potential highlight shade in Tako. Of course, not all palettes or eye looks need a highlight shade, but I think if you wanted to pick only one palette which could be used with other brands/shadows in a million different looks, this would be my choice. Of course, you may disagree! I’d love to hear your thoughts on it 😀
The Sugarpill Sweetheart palette is part of their Addicted to Pretty collection, and includes four shades (descriptions are from the Sugarpill website):
Tako – Pure matte white
Dollipop – Vibrant, matte hot pink
Afterparty – Bright turquoise with a semi-pearly sheen
Midori – Vibrant green with a slightly pearl sheen
The following is copied and pasted from my Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette review, only because it’s still relevant. Single pressed shadows retail for $12 normally, whereas the palette is $34, so you’re saving a LOT ($14, to be exact) by getting the palettes. This is an amazing deal in my opinion, especially because the palettes contain full-sized shadows. Moreover, the sizes are enormous — 4 grams or 0.14oz each. By comparison, most pressed shadow singles contain 0.05 oz (Urban Decay and MAC, for example).
I picked this and the Burning Heart palettes up during Sugarpill’s 3rd anniversary sale of 20% off shadows, which made each palette $27 (they rounded down in the customer’s favor!). So, although each palette is a great deal to begin with, with the sale, it was almost a steal. I passed on the Sugarpill Black Friday sale last year because I had already spent too much, so I’m very happy to have been able to get these at such a great price.
I love this palette because of how the shades just scream cute with the hot pink and grass green and darkened sky blue (I disagree that this is a turquoise, but what do you think?) and crisp white. It’s very Hello Kitty / Sanrio to me.
My favorite is Dollipop. Just like with Acidberry in the Heartbreaker palette, this is a shade which I tend not to see often and when I do, it applies weakly. I was amazed, as usual, at how pigmented and true to pan the color was.
Random trivia: ‘Midori,’ besides being one of the few alcohols I can stand, means ‘green’ in Japanese. It can also be used as a girl’s name and has fresh, springtime connotations (like naming a girl April or Summer). One of my favorite drinks is a Midori Sour, because it barely tastes like alcohol. (I can’t hold my drink at all. Sugary sweet cocktails all the way for me.)
‘Tako’ can mean ‘octopus’ or ‘kite’ and I’m unsure why that was chosen for this shade! Squid are usually white, whereas octopus are commonly colored red or purple. However, I think I read somewhere that the founder of Sugarpill, Shrinkle, has a white cat named Tako so it might be just a personal thing and not literal at all 😛
As always, Sugarpill are cruelty-free. Dollipop is not vegan because it contains carmine. However, Tako, Afterparty and Midori are vegan. Yay!
Where to buy: Sugarpill or Beautylish
Would I repurchase?: Yes! I won’t repeat myself and sing their praises again and again, but Sugarpill continue to put out amazing, high-quality product at competitive prices. The Sweetheart palette is no exception.
