Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Palette

Oh look, a wild palette appears!

I hope you all are having a lovely Saturday, and I hope you made a snack because I have a quick(er) and fun Swatch Saturday for today!

Okay, story time. On Mother’s Day my mom handed me a card and said, “There’s gift cards in there, one is for a lunch date and one is for makeup and only makeup…not diapers or things for the girls. Makeup. Buy a palette.” Yes ma’am, you don’t have to tell me twice. So, I bought this palette from Sugarpill because I’ve actually been wanting it for so long. The first time I truly wanted this palette was after Cora from VintageorTacky used it to create her Marie Antoinette look. Fun fact: I’m obsessed with Marie Antoinette and have a love for French history. They just really fascinate me. However, that’s not what this post is about today.

That’s my short backstory behind how this palette is now in my little paws.

Sugarpill is a cruelty free indie company that sells a lot of pastel and neon oriented things. If you’re in the mood to brighten up your face, go check this company out. That’s right, I bought something that isn’t neutral! I’m a bit burned out with neutral palettes at the moment *gasp* and I really wanted to add something colorful and flirty to my collection for Summer.

This palette retails at $34, and the shipping was really quick. Also, can we talk about how cutely packaged everything is? I really adore companies that take the time to make sure EVERYTHING looks amazing when it’s shipped to a customer. When I recieved my package I also got a cute sticker and a sample of a loose pigment.

So, on to the actual palette. I’m going to talk about the packaging again, sorry. IT HAS A KITTEN ON IT. I die. It’s a kitten wearing a tiara. Honestly, this is the cutest palette I own so far. It’s a standard cardboard outside, but the kitten with the tiara makes me smile every damn time I look at it.

When you open this palette up, there are 4 full sized shades in it. All of these shades are also sold separately for $12 each, so for $34 you’re getting all of them, which is a pretty decent discount.

Now, I will say that this is not a palette you would buy thinking there’s going to be a matte transition shade, a crease shade etc…you’ll have to use other shades to compliment this palette if that’s something you do. However, this palette comes with 4 stunning and pigmented shades that are perfect for Spring and Summer if you’re looking to do bold and/or flirty looks.

Pastels and bright shades tend to be hit and miss at times. Sometimes pastel shades can be very lacking in pigmentation, and sometimes bright shades can go on patchy and look dry.

How did these measure up? I’m getting to that!

From left to right:

Kitten Parade- a peachy rose-gold shade with lots of shimmer

Frostine- a sheer lilac

Candy crush- a pastel mint shade

Hotsy Totsy- bright hot pink

Out of all of these, kitten parade is probably my favorite. I just really want to wear it everyday so that when people ask me what’s on my lids I can respond, “Kitten Parade.” Frostine took me a bit to build up, it’s a very sheer lilac shade. Pretty, but def not super “bam, in your face” pigmented. It does work beautifully to blend out edges if you’re using this palette to create a bright look though. Candy Crush also has a really nice texture to it, and while pigmented, you’ll get the best pigmentation if you use this over a white base like the Nyx Jumbo eye pencil in “Milk.” It’s super lovely, and I actually enjoy this shade as an inner corner highlight. Hotsy Totsy was the only one with a different texture than the rest. It was a bit dry. However, when I put it on my lid it blended out gorgeously and didn’t look dry on my lids. I think it feels a bit dry because it’s another one of those shades that’s a matte with shimmer added to the matte base. With that being said, with the right amount of blending this shade can be made into an out of this world hot pink matte shadow.

Overall, I’m so in love with this palette. I can’t wait to sit down and play with it more and create fun Summer looks with it. I may hate the Summer heat, but at least my eyeballs will be pretty.

I plan on filming a tutorial using this palette soon, so if you’re interested in that and are new to my blog, please follow me and/or subscribe to my channel!

As always, thanks for reading this post if you made this far, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days.
