Palettes -Sugar Cosmetics -Sugar Cube Set

Well as much as I absolutly love this packaging, I just kind of feel like this was a waste of money. The lipglosses are much too sheer, they might as well be clear. The neutral eyeshadows have barely any pigment. The more vibrant eyeshadows are very pigmented but fade very fast. The only good product in this set was the blush and the bronzer. I absolutly love the blush! The pigmentation is great and it's a very nice color.

Palettes -Sugar Cosmetics -Best Friend Makeup Palette

on 8/1/2009 9:53:00 AM

This is probably one of my favorite makeup products of all time. I love love love the eyeshadow and Sugar Cosmetics' lip gloss in general. I have no idea what the people who say the smell is bad are talking about. I have literally bought 4 of these exact same palettes - two for myself and two as gifts - and they always smelled amazing. The gloss has always looked great, tastes sweet, and smelled really nice. My friends who I gave this to love it, my boyfriend says it tastes nice when he kisses me, it's all great. The eyeshadow even smells like sugar! The blush is great for me, but since I'm pale I never really have used the bronzer, which is one of Sugar's most popular products.

I'm trying to think of a single bad thing about this product, and I think the only thing I would change is that the packaging around the lip gloss does get this sort of oil ring(?) around the pans. I never noticed this with the Daily Diary or I Shop For Sugar palettes (I really am addicted to Sugar palettes haha), and the lip gloss is basically the same in those. Maybe because the BF palette is white and those others are black plastic? anyway, I would buy again, and have bought again, again and again lol.

Palettes -Sugar Cosmetics -I Dream of Sugar

on 7/19/2009 3:30:00 PM


As a makeup junkie, when I saw this on clearance, I had to have it.
The palette looks super cute, and it's pink.

Can’t remember how much I paid for it, but I remember it was very cheap. Therefore I didn't expect much from it really.

There are 16 eye shadows, and they don't suck terribly. They are on a chalky side but you can work with them. In fact there are a few very interesting colors, to my surprise. I have a lot of high quality eye shadows so I don't find myself using these, at all.

BUT, I love the lip glosses and blush and bronzer that comes with it. Lip glosses are amazing quality; non-sticky, pigmented, variety of colors, interesting colors.. I can't say enough good things about them.

The blush is perfect for my pale skin. It's shimmery peachy blush, highly pigmented, and slightly on chalky side but really good nevertheless.

Bronzer is shimmery and little too dark for me. But because it's so pigmented you have to be very careful with your brush and watch how much color you pick up. I almost wish it wasn't so pigmented. But it's a beautiful color.

The 5 applicators that come with it, suck, big time.

Mascara -Sugar Cosmetics -Sugar Double Wink

I bought it just to try it once because it was so cheap online at sephora (probably around the same time as the fellow reviewer below!) and was pleasantly surprised after I first put it on! The brush is nice, and with the formula there's no clumping..until a few wks old *BUT* not as much as nor as fast as the clinique all about eyes mascara I had always used before. I think they are selling it again at sephora.com at a sale price of $9.50! Considering how much product you're getting in addition to the convenient double-sided brush, it's a good buy! It volumizes OK, but I have a lot of eyelashes anyway so it works for me. Then lengthening...the difference is slightly noticeable.

Bronzers -Sugar Cosmetics -Travel Tan Face & Body Bronzer

This bronzer is really nice because it's not messy. However, for overall bronzing abilities, it doesn't score so high. It does let off a very nice shimmer, perfect for collarbones and shoulders. If you want just a light shimmer this is very nice but if you're looking for an actual bronze glow I wouldn't purchase this. Overall a nice product though.

Mascara -Sugar Cosmetics -Sugar Double Wink

I got this on ebay for a great price, and I'm glad I did. I really like the double feature...and it does create a very nice dramatic look on my eyelashes.. I still like Clinique's high impact a little better, but this is a close favorite. I take it off at night with DH oil and that seems to work well. I use the lengthen side first and then the volume and it definitely doesn't clump up or smear. Will repurchase.

Makeup Brushes -Sugar Cosmetics -Powder Brush

on 6/18/2009 11:44:00 PM


I love this brush! It is dense, so it is the perfect kabuki for either mineral foundation or powder, but I don't really wear mineral foundation, so I just use it for my setting powder. Minimal shedding, but it has lost a few hairs. I love the way the short handle feels in my hand, plus I adore the pink tipped bristles. So cute! Very soft, feels great against the skin. I bought it for about $10 on ebay because my Sephora was sold out. I definitely would reccomend this to anyone looking for a high quality 'buki.

Tinted Moisturizer -Sugar Cosmetics -Sugar Tint

on 6/10/2009 9:50:00 AM

thiss is the best coverage tinted moisturizer for sure. it covers well and gives you a nice glow. but its border line between glowey and greasy. i love this stuff personally for me right now in hot weather. but i think that this could easily make someone orangey tinted. it only comes in one color. and right now it workss for me because its summer and i have a tan but if i get ligghter i will defently be orange. i would give this a higher ratign because it works really good for me. but the fact that it only comes in one color and its not a very universal color.nand that it can appear greasy probably isnt a good thing. i find if you use a damp sponge you can avoid that though. good product. you might want to check the color before you put it on your face though if your very light. also the price retails for like 15$? but i got mine for cheap at tj max.

SUGAR TRAVEL FACE & BODY BRONZER - GLOW ON THE GO I bought this bronzer because its sugar. At first I hated it I couldnt figure out how to get the bronzer out. I took it apart shook shook shook (like a polaroid picture) no bronzer finally I figured it out you have to tap it really hard and then ahhhhhhh yes it comes out fine now and looks great on. I like parts of the package. Like the head of the brush goes inside the package like a turlte head so you can put the brush away with out smashing it. So way to go Sugar now I really can Glow on the go

Eye Shadow -Sugar Cosmetics -Day Job Palette

I got this at TJ Maxx for a very good price, about $6 if I remember correctly. Anyways, this palette is decent, the colors are nice. I like blending the two browns over my lids, though that's about it, I hardly use the other colors. These aren't very vibrant, good for a sheer wash - I like my shadows more vibrant. You should preferably use a primer beforehand as some of them aren't as long lasting as the others. But I like how they go on very smoothly. I know I wouldn't buy this again full price ($20), but I use it. The packaging is cute, slim shiny white with fuschia lines.

Tinted Moisturizer -Sugar Cosmetics -Sugar Tint

on 5/3/2009 12:42:00 PM

i bought this at my local tj-maxx for $4 dollars and i had heard of the brand before, so i decided to try it. i got light-medium, which is a bit dark for me becuase it has no color sample on the packaging...anyway, it goes on smoothly and stays on for about 7 hours. if you apply too much it will leave you looking quite orange. a little goes a LONG way, i use about 1/4 of a dime amount for my whole face. dosn't cover my huge pores, but nothing will. i will buy again! great for summer! i
