I’m an absolute sucker for detail, so it’s no surprise that my latest makeup crush is Sugarpill Cosmetics. I’ve been following the brand since its launch in 2010; watching it grow into what I can only describe as a beauty cult following. Sugarpill personifies and celebrates colour in such a playful way, that beauty lovers alike would find it difficult not to fall under its charming spell. Only recently did I actually make my first purchase, and I’m still baffled at why it took me so long to indulge.
So, what item broke my Sugarpill cherry, you ask? I decided to treat myself to their newest palette; a quad of vivid and gorgeous shades called ‘The Heart Breaker Palette’. My package arrived promptly and was a delight to open. From the adorable Sugarpill branded box, to the girly pink tissue paper that enveloped my purchase (as well as a glittery sticker, a loose eyeshadow sample and mini postcard), simply unwrapping my little ‘gift’ was a treat. And if that wasn’t enough to impress me, the handwritten thank you on the enclosed invoice was a charming touch.
So onto the palette, shall we? What can I say…seriously. These eyeshadows are a little slice of makeup heaven in my opinion. You get a generous amount of product which has amazing colour payoff, the packaging is adorable AND durable, as well as a decent size mirror which is always a plus. Really great value for thirty-four dollars!
Swatches (L-R): 2AM, Acidberry, Velocity and Mochi
- 2AM – Matte purple with a slightly pearl sheen
- Acidberry – Vibrant matte lime green with a slightly pearl sheen

Aren’t those shades gorgeous?! I’m ecstatic about this purchase and have been testing it out since I got my hands on the palette. I simply can’t wait to play with these colours a little more and share some of my looks with you.
