Here we are, the last day of Sugarpill week! Well… the last for now! My newly found Sugarpill-lust has been awoken and I need all the loose shadows! Right meow!
I saved the best palette for last! Of course, best is a subjective term, but the Sugarpill Burning Heart palette is certainly my favorite!
The Sugarpill Burning Heart palette is part of their Addicted to Pretty collection, and includes four shades (descriptions are from the Sugarpill website):
Love+ – Bright red!
Buttercupcake – Brightest bright matte yellow with awesome opaque coverage
Poison Plum – Deep matte purple with a semi-pearly sheen
Flamepoint – Vibrant matte orange
Why is this my favorite? A couple of reasons… I mentioned in my post for @#$%! about my love for red shadows. Purple is my favorite color, and I will instantly gravitate towards any shadow or palette with a purple shade in it. The yellow and orange — well, who doesn’t like a good primary color or two! Just look at it! Seriously! How many exclamation points you need?!
Small note: seems there was a production error with my Burning Heart palette — as you can see, it’s missing the back label with the shade names! I sent an email to Sugarpill support, asking if it was possible for me to get just the label (as I’m anal about that kinda stuff…) and Sarah responded quickly saying they would send it off to me right away. So yay! I wasn’t even sure if it was possible, as I don’t know how their shadows are produced, but kudos to them! If I remember, and I can’t promise anything, I’ll come back and edit this post with the picture once it arrives.
This is copied and pasted from my previous Sugarpill palette posts, but 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 Sweetheart palette 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.
My favorite from this palette.. well, honestly, it’s a toss-up between Love+ and Poison Plum. They’re both the perfect red and the perfect purple. Seriously I’m in love. Sometimes I like taking my palette out just to look at and drool over and marvel. (God, please tell me I’m not the only one who does that.)
Unfortunately for vegans, this palette is also the least veg-friendly. Of the four shades, only Buttercupcake is vegan. However, of course, Sugarpill are always cruelty-free.
Sugarpill are known for throwing in stickers with every order, and I also got a promo card for their newest collection, Cold Chemistry (says it’s coming out Winter, but doesn’t say the year?) and a sample of Goldilux, a loose shadow.
I’m sooo excited to see what is in the Cold Chemistry collection — that blurb is a little vague but intriguing!
I love the cute little sample packaging. Even the staple is pink!
Goldilux is described on the site as “brilliant, highly-reflective metallic gold with breathtaking shine.” It’s a beautiful bright gold with a slightly burnished, antiqued quality. It’s super shiny and sparkly — definitely one of the more beautiful golds I’ve ever come across. The above swatch is done dry over bare skin. I think it’d be absolutely stunning wet or over a base.
So, I hope y’all enjoyed Sugarpill week! I know I did~! 8D Now on to looks! Oh, the looks I can create! OK, I’m starting to sound mad but in my defense, it is 5:30 am and I’m a little delirious after a night of work.
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 Burning Heart palette is my favorite of their current options.
