Hey everyone, I've still got to finish up my recap post on PHAMExpo but I couldn't wait to put up this post on one of the new Sparkle Baby Eyeshadows from Sugarpill Cosmetics. Sparkle Baby is a collection of four sugary-sweet looking eyeshadows, debuting around the end of August (I asked). The collection won't be available for another month but I thought it'd be worth swatching and showing my favorite color from the collection, Kitten Parade.
Where to purchase: Sugarpill Cosmetics (in August!)
Price: $12.00 for 3.5 grams of product
Do they test on animals? They do not test on animals.
I want to talk about how adorably cute the packaging is for the collection. One of the reasons why I like Sugarpill so much is because they put so much effort into branding their lines where I get so much enjoyment out of the packaging and not just the product. The Sparkle Baby collection features a pastel blue and pink theme with a sweet heterochromatic eyed white kitten on the back.
There's also a nice change to the eyeshadow compacts because they're white instead of black like in the main collection eyeshadows.
The content inside doesn't disappoint either. Kitten Parade is a rosy-peachy pink with a brilliant gold gilt and sparkle. Compared to the rest of Sugarpill's main collection eyeshadows, it is as close as they'll get to a neutral eyeshadow. By the way, this eyeshadow is NOT vegan because there is carmine in the formula.
Swatch: (Swatched over Milani Eyeshadow Primer and the pictures were taken in natural daylight with no flash)
Depending on how you apply it and the angle that the light hits it, it'll look slightly different. If you swipe it on, you'll find that the gold gilt tends to be more prominent than the rosy base whereas if you pat it on, you'll get more of the pink out of the eyeshadow. I'd say it'd fairly pigmented but can be applied sheerly as an all over wash. The gold sparkle in the eyeshadow is prone to fallout so I would recommend a sticky primer with this eyeshadow. When the light hits it the right way, you'll get a beautiful flash of gold like in the picture on the right.
Would I recommend?
YES. You need to get this. Honestly I think it's worth getting just because of the name but the color itself is beautiful. Seriously, it'll be worth waiting until August for! There is some fallout you will have to deal with because of the gold sparkle but wearing a sticky primer or a sticky base should help with the issue; it's not enough of a problem that should deter you from purchasing the color!
