Review: Sugarpill Cold Chemistry

Disclaimer: Item provided for review

Sugarpill is one of those brands that I strait up love. I’ve tried so many different brands, and none of them have come even close to the quality that Sugarpill has (with the exeption of Illamasqua), but even then as far as size of the product and affordability, again, I prefer Sugarpill.

The eyeshadows are like touching velvet. Soft, so pigmented and the glitter doesn’t fall off after application

One of the biggest signs of a bad quality eyeshadow is when, once swatched, the glitter just falling off. Not the case with these as you can see from the swatches.

I’ve been trying to think of a way to show the swatches in a different way, I don’t know how to make gifs and I’m not terribly fond of doing video reviews, so instead I thought I’d show you video swatches through my Instagram here.


  • Made in California
  • Cruelty Free
  • Large pans
  • £24. 95 (if bought from the UK)
  • $34.00 (if bought in the US)
I might end up doing this a lot with any future swatches, it seems like a good way to be able to really show accurately how the swatches look in real life. Especially for anything with glitter which can get a bit lost in photographs.

Above you can see the swatches I look, each line was done with just two swipes and without using primer. I’m not going to pretend to be shocked, it’s Sugarpill! Apart from their amazing packaging they’re known for being ridiculously pigmented.

 This time the packaging isn’t as heavy as the Burning Heart and Heart Breaker palettes 

Those pallets are sturdy, but they really add to the weight of your kit if you took them to use in a shoot, or even just traveling in general.  That did save my Burning Heart palette from getting destroyed once, but I’m quite happy that this one is much lighter.

I never really have anything bad to say about Sugarpill, which makes me feel a little bad, since I need to point out the pro’s and con’s, but they’re just that good! I can’t really think of any cons :/

You can buy these here (UK) or here (US)

    I heard Sugarpill has really good color payoff, so good that it takes extra effort to clean up at the end of the day…

    The only con is probably what Kiki mentioned… taking some extra effort to get it off your skin at the end of the day. And if it takes extra effort, that means it stayed on pretty well during the day, so… xD
