I was so excited to try out this color that i even purchased 2 jars. I know, crazy... because to finish 1 it will take ages!
The color is beautiful, so vivid and vibrant. And i love the combo of matte pigment with lots of lightweight turquoise glitter!! The glitter isn't chunky at all, which is a big plus. However, working with this pigment was difficult. It seems to leave my eyelids with a patchy finish. And i tried different primers. As some users mentioned here, it's difficult to blend and it tends to look patchy. And the lasting power isn't the best. Therefore, i am giving it 3 lippies. The packaging is super cute and the price is fair for all the amount you get. The color is beautiful and the idea of the matte texture with glitter is lovely. It probably needs an improved formula so it would be perfect.
First of all I LOVE Sugarpill's loose eyeshadows. This color is one of the most pigmented of the 9 I own. It is a vibrant and bold royal blue with light blue micro sparkles. The blue itself is matte. An amazing color and product, but can be a tad tricky to work with. I had to experiment with many bases to get the look I wanted. Of them Too Faced Glitter Glue and NYX white base/milk jumbo stick work best. Then you must carefully press the shadow into the base to stick it. I felt as though blending made the micro sparkles disappear so you also have to be careful not to buff the color. But the result is defiantly worth the extra fuss, especially if you love makeup art and the bold looks you can achieve with this color.
I got this in Royal Sugar, Magpie and Tiara. Now I want the rest!!! I don't use loose pigments too often, but was blown away by the quality of Sugarpill pigments.
The computer can never do these rich and vibrant colors justice. Royal Sugar is a bright, deep, sapphire/royal blue that surprisingly doesn't go over the top. Tiara is a gorgeous silver that reflects surrounding colors and Magpie is a deeper, more complex navy blue shimmer.
I'm not sure if my camera picked up the vibrancy of these colors very well, but I absolutely love them.
The apply soo easily. I just used a NYX base in white and did not dampen my brush at all. I used a flat shader brush to press the pigment in and after 2 hours, no fallout. There was a tiny bit of pigment around my cheeks and nose immediately after applying, but that is normal.
The shipping was very reasonable ($5 flat) and the cost is incredible (only $12!!!). Great, vegan product. I can't wait to try the pressed shadows.
@Iris and Martinez - Have you tried a sticky base like Fyrinnae's Primer Potion or LA Splash's Glitter Primer? Those can really do the trick :P
While this shadow is rather hard to work with, as are most dryer ultramarines, using a sticky base under it does the trick, it stays put, doesn't crease and it stays bright around the clock! I absolutely love this color, especially layered on top of Afterparty eyeshadow by the same company!
A beautiful, sparkly, electric blue! Very intense and eye catching. Looks amazing over Fyrinnae pixie epoxy. I didn't find this hard to blend at all, though it's obviously best over a good primer. There was quite a bit of fallout, but that's to be expected with loose shadows. Amazing quality from Sugarpill as always!
I can almost write word for word what Iris25 wrote! Even down to using UD eden and NYX as bases. I thought that I was just doing it wrong because I also had the same patchy, creasing effect. I have found that I have to seriously pile it on to get uniform color, but then it doesn't seem to blend all that well. I have a bunch of other Sugarpill products, and I seem to prefer the pressed e/s over the chromalusts. Although the chromalusts have a-m-a-z-i-n-g pigmentation and color, I don't find them as easy to work with, especially royal sugar.
I absolutely adore this color and the brand itself. Amy (Shrinkle) made a awesome product. Royal Sugar is a great and very blendable color. I love pairing it with Buttercupcake and Afterparty!! WOuld suggest very highly
I recieved my order of three sugarpill chromalust. I will review the other two once I get a chance to test them out. I wore Royal Sugar today and I loved my look. I put Royal Sugar on my lid and UD shroom in my crease. I was dissapointed on the lasting power of Royal Sugar, which started to fade and crease about three hours after application. I used UD eden as a primer and NYX base in a jar( the concealer one). First Royal Sugar is somewhat of a pain to apply. I felt as I was applying the color would gather in one area more than the other creating a patchy look. I had to pat and pat in order to achieve a uniform color on my lid. I won't complain about fallout because most loose eyeshadows fall out during application. Overall I think the color is very unique and with a good hand there are many cool looks that can be accomplished with this color. Lasting power is not good, so for a night out to dinner yeah but for an all day color no. I do love the concept of Sugarpill and I have yet to try her pressed eyeshadows but I do plan on making another order, however I don't think I would buy this particular color again.
