Review: Sugarpill » ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow

First of all, I have an unneeded obsession with purple eyeshadow. Don't ask me why. This is the first reason I bought this eyeshadow. The second reason is because it's beyond awesome!

The short of it:
Brand » Sugarpill Cosmetics
Product » ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow in Hysteric
Cost » $12 USD
Website »
Would I repurchase? » Um, basically I want one in every color x) does that answer it?

I want to mention that I started this blog to be about Asian cosmetics...but this brand is not actually from a part of Asia. However, if you've never heard of Sugarpill, just know that it's a highly respected indie brand based out of Berkeley, California. And well, I do love Cali and that's why I live here ^^. Sugarpill also toured with 6%DOKIDOKI, which is an amazing kawaii fashion clothing brand from Harajuku in Tokyo!! Sebastian, the owner and creator of 6%DOKIDOKI works closely with my j-pop idol Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, if you are at all familiar with her. So basically, that's a whole lot of awesome surrounding this makeup, at least to me!

How to describe Sugarpill loose shadows? The first time I found Sugarpill was in a little Japanese culture shop on Melrose (amazing shopping area in Hollywood). They had these shadows on display and so naturally I flocked to the makeup to test it out. I was mesmerized. Literally the best loose shadow I've ever tried in my entire life! Yes. Not kidding.

This is the first loose shadow that I've tried that really stays on your eye all day/night without needing a primer. And it doesn't fall off your brush and all over your face during application (unless you get a little too crazy). The powder itself is super soft and pigmented. The pictures honestly don't do the color/shimmer justice, because these are magnificent! I tried out pretty much every color on my hand in the store and they were all equally amazing. I ended up with Hysteric, because as I said there is just something about purple eyeshadow ;)

As Sugarpill says:

"Glamorous sparkling loose eyeshadows that outshine them all! These ultra-fine metallic powders combine show-stopping color with adhesive elements for long-lasting wear."

They have a range of other dazzling colors and all are available on their website. I also think you get a lot of powder for the price. Love, love, love these!
