Hi guys! Today I continued using my Sugarpill eye shadows. I really love them. They are super bright and pigmented. The two things that I am not 100% sold on are #1) Bulletproof isn't as black as I imagined it would be -- It's like a soft black or dark gray when applied. It's not very true to pan. I haven't taken the time to really pack it on, though. I think that if the shade is black, I shouldn't have to pack it on so heavily to really get the shade it's supposed to be. Maybe because of all the hype associated with the products, I had exceptionally high expectations. I thought it would be like the other colors where a little product would pack such a punch. I truly believed it was going to be better than MAC Carbon eye shadow. From what I have used of it, it's not better. I'm going to continue to try and work with it before I give it my official thumbs up or down. However, it is really soft when applied. MAC Carbon is more on the drier side and isn't soft to apply. I would prefer it to be both soft and highly pigmented. #2) Poison Plum tends to show pores or something when applied on the brow bone area. (See pictures below.) I don't know if this is normal or what this means yet. I will have to use it more to check if it consistently does this. I will say it is very pigmented, as I expected. But I am just not sure about the way it settles on the skin. I will be doing an updated review of the products when I get a better feel for how they work.
In the meantime, this is what I used to create today's look...
