This is a colour dupe for my favourite MAC Russian Red in my opinion. So, naturally, I love the shade. I bought this when I ran out of the former, mainly enticed by the packaging and the cruelty free part. And am I glad I did! The texture is a huge selling point for me as well as the colour. It feels a bit dense when you start to apply it, almost waxy, but it warms up quickly on the lips and becomes this beautiful supple creamy, but not too creamy, texture that I've never seen in a lip product before (and I'm a lipstick junkie). I think it's that plush "waxiness" that adds dimension and volume to the lips. My lips are naturally on the smaller side, but with this lipstick on they look noticeably fuller and "sculpted" for the lack of a better term. I just love it so much! There was a bit of a learning curve with application because of the unique texture of it, but it's nothing crazy. Best applied with a brush. Would not budge, smudge, or bleed, no lip liner needed.

Kitten Parade is one of the most flattering shadows I've ever used. It's a light peachy pink, not toooooo warm toned, with a beautiful pale golden shimmer running throughout. Unlike a lot of golden pink cosmetics, the gold doesn't overwhelm the pink; it looks distinctly pink with gold, then peachy at some angles. It's pigmented and smooth, and blends beautifully. You can't go wrong with Kitten Parade, except possibly if you're super cool toned.I have the Sparkle Baby palette, and I like to wear Kitten Parade as a wash with Hotsy Totsy (brightened medium warm pink with very tiny, very diffuse colorless glitter) in the inner corner. The whole palette knocks it out of the park, really.

On me, Trinket looks almost nothing like the mauve you see in pictures, which is what seduced me. It looks mauve in low light, but mostly appears as a medium terracotta brownish nude that's frankly a lot more, well, brown than I usually like my lip colors. The part about pressing your lips together to reveal the heavy wash of tiny gold glitter works as advertised, though, and I like it more that way. I'll keep Trinket around as a way to experiment with a deeper, more earthy nude lip, but I'm disappointed.The formula is this nifty, super lightweight mousse that I've never experienced with any other liquid lipcolor. I only need a tiny amount to cover all of my lips; in fact, too much product applied pills and crumbles off (wherein it lands on my chin and smudges). It's a wand wiper, and one tube will last me for the rest of my life! I've found that Trinket needs to be applied onto completely clean, dry lips, as even a hint of moisture will somehow cause it to dry out my lips, but, once it's on, it's quite comfortable. It's not a long lasting lipcolor; it comes off on my straw, e-cigarette, or whatever else touches my lips. It wears off evenly, however. The teardrop shaped doe foot applicator tip requires some care in using; the first couple of times, I was applying with the wider part and ended up going over the lip line. The orange creamsicle scent is subtle and disappears quickly.It remains to be seen whether I'd buy Trinket again, but it has potential.

Sugarpill has recently begun selling Lumi again, after it being out of stock for a long time due to a key ingredient becoming unavailable. I did not have the old Lumi so cannot comment on any changes in the colour or formula, but I haven't heard anyone saying that there is a noticeable difference between the two. Lumi is a difficult colour to pin down. In the pot it is a super shimmery white. When applied to bare skin, it is a shimmery sheerish white with a mint green shift. If it is applied on top of another colour, it takes on that colour much like an opal does. I think "opalescent" is the best way to describe this shade. Lumi is very different to Ghosted, which is a shimmery sheerish white with a very definite pink shift. I often put Ghosted on the inner third of my lid and Lumi on the outer two thirds of my lid to get the most opal-like effect.Sugarpill's loose shadows are smooth, pigmented, stay fast to the eyelid, don't crease or stain, and a little goes a long way. But I wish that Lumi was available in a pressed formula, as I find loose shadows a little difficult to work with: I still don't have the knack of applying loose shadows without shadow dropping down onto my cheeks. There is no fallout once the shadow is on the eyelid, but during application it can get messy. If you're new to using loose shadows, my recommendation is to get the tiniest amount of shadow on your brush and apply it by pressing the brush against your skin. But even then, I'd also recommend doing your eyes before you do your base makeup.I have not experienced any irritation using this shadow, although I do not have sensitive skin.Lumi is one of Sugarpill's most famous colours, and it's really worth the money. The formula has a bit of a learning curve, but it's worth it.

I bought this after already buying Love+ and Kiss Kiss (part of the Feline Fancy palette). Asylum is a warm orangey red with a metallic finish. It is quite different to Love+ (being metallic and not such a true red) but is quite similar to Kiss Kiss. The difference is in the undertone - Asylum is more orangey than Kiss Kiss and is closer to the colour of blood. That sounds a little gross but it's actually a very nice colour, and I think more approachable for people that are new to wearing red on their eyes. Sugarpill's loose shadows are smooth, pigmented, stay fast to the eyelid, don't crease or stain, and a little goes a long way. But I wish that Asylum was available in a pressed formula, as I find loose shadows a little difficult to work with: I still don't have the knack of applying loose shadows without shadow dropping down onto my cheeks. There is no fallout once the shadow is on the eyelid, but during application it can get messy. If you're new to using loose shadows, my recommendation is to get the tiniest amount of shadow on your brush (this product is very pigmented) and apply it by pressing the brush against your skin. But even then, I'd also recommend doing your eyes before you do your base makeup. I have not experienced any irritation using this shadow, although I do not have sensitive skin. This shadow is vegan, which is unusual for a red as they usually contain carmine, so thumbs up for that! Overall this is a beautiful colour and formula with a bit of a learning curve. I'm glad to have it in my collection because it's such a unique shade.
