Of every aspect of makeup, my favourite thing to experiment with is my eyes. I love creating different looks and how versatile eye shadows can be. One brand which has been on my radar for a while now is Sugarpill Cosmetics and I have recently been trialing the Cold Chemistry collection* (Love Make Up*, £8.50) which comprises of four impressive single shadows as well as the shadows in palette form. Sugarpill is a brand for everyone, with all of their products being 100% cruelty free and suitable for both vegetarians and vegans - something I personally find really fantastic about a brand. A luxury eyeshadow collection, Sugarpill have teamed up with inspiring designer of cult fashion and art brand A is for Arsenic London, Amelia Arsenic. The shades in the range are packed full of shimmer, but with no risk of fall out or glitter-face effect. With a super soft, almost velvet like finish, these shadows apply effortlessly and can be blended with ease. A little goes such a long way with these shadows - Incredibly pigmented, they made me go 'wow!' when I first swatched them. Less is more, because these are intense! Which is just what I like from my shadows - Sugarpill, I am impressed! Combining the glamour and nocturnal worlds, the shades in the collection have just as interesting and other-worldy names as the collections name; Diamond Eyes, Elemental Chaos, Subterranean and Soot & Stars.
Diamond Eyes is the most versatile everyday shade of the bunch, being a perfect highlight shade for the inner corner and lower lash line, as well as really making other shadows 'pop!' if used as a base. A satin white with a softer shimmer than the other shades, this particular shade has had my avid attention on a daily basis. Next up, my favourite for blending through the crease right now, Subterranean is a gorgeously vibrant forest green (described by Sugarpill as a 'peacock green') that is perfect for this time of year, particularly since I seem to have a favourable eye for green shadows right now. For you purple lovers out there, a gorgeous deep grape shade under the guise of Elemental Chaos is going to be the one for you. I'm experimenting with this shade right now, but it's definitely a beauty used in the crease - I'll keep you updated on a more vibrant, out there purple eye I'm working on when I've had more of a play with this delicious shade! Last but not least, Soot & Stars. Everyone needs a gunmental shade in their collection for the days when a true black is too much. I love this as a liner for both the upper and lower lash line and boy does this look special when used to create a smokey eye! The entire collection just works beautifully either when used individually, together or with other shadows in my collection. For my first dabble into Sugarpill I am massively impressed and I will definitely be looking at investing in some more from their range. Until then, I'm going to love using this vibrant yet dark and mysterious collection of shades throughout the colder months - because I am smitten.
