Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow Review

Up on the plate today we have a review of Sugarpill's pressed eyeshadows. I've been using these lovelies since last year and they continue to impress me each and every time. Anytime I want color I reach for these. I've read some reviews comparing these eyeshadows to Make-up Forever's shadows. They are similar in size and quality. There is a price difference. Make-up Forever singles are $19 a piece and Sugarpill are $12. Unlike Make-up Forever, Sugarpill offers three different palettes of four eyeshadows for $34. To me that's a steal... these shadows are awesome and will last a long time. If you love color you'll adore these badboys.

On their site Sugarpill describes them as:
"Richly pigmented, velvety smooth, luxury pressed eyeshadows for all-night party wear."

Richly pigmented- Check
Velvety smooth- Check
Luxury pressed- Check
All-night wear- Check
I applaud Sugarpill for living up to their descriptions.

Color Breakdown:
Love +: The perfect matte red.
Flamepoint: An warm matte orange.
Buttercupcake: A rich golden bright matte yellow.
Midori: A slightly shimmery green with a dash of yellow.
Afterparty: A medium bright blue shimmer.
Poison Plum: A purple matte with a dash of red.
Dollipop: A matte Barbie pink.
Bulletproof: A solid matte black.

Top Row: Love +, Flamepoint, Buttercupcake, Midori
Bottom Row: Afterparty, Poison Plum, Dollipop, Bulletproof

Overall I highly recommend these. The color payoff is superb. The texture is smooth. They blend well. The packaging is adorable. The price is worth every penny.
