Sugarpill Cold Chemistry Review and Concert Makeup Look

Hi Bellas,

Happy Wednesday!  Today I wanted to share a review and look from one of the hottest new makeup releases out there - Sugarpill's Cold Chemistry Palette.  These shades hold true to Sugarpill's super pigmented philosophy but they have a bit of a fun twist for Fall.  Check it out!

First off, have you seen the amazing packaging?  It's got a shatter effect with colors that mimic the eyeshadow shades.  These collection is in collaboration with the amazing Amelia Arsenic.  The Cold Chemistry palettes retails for $34 and you can also buy the the shadows individually for $12 a piece at www.sugarpillshop.com.

I love the slim, sleek palette with a built in mirror.  Talk about gorgeous!
Up close look at the shades:
1) Soot and Stars - This is a sparkly charcoal gray that is awesome for smoking out the eye with a pop of shimmer.
2) Diamond Eyes - Super shimmering pearl with a pop of irridenscent glitter.  Great for popping on top of color to give a dazzling effect or to highlight the tear duct on browbone.
3) Elemental Chaos - A neutral violet with tons of purple shimmer.  It's not super bright but still got a nice amount of impact.
4) Subterranean - A deep, forest shimmering green.  What a great autumn shade.

In general, these colors are highly pigmented and pack a lot of color.  They all have shimmer which is a departure from Sugarpill's super matte, bright colors.

These swatches are dry without a base.  I love the metallic finish.  The shadows can be a little soft so make sure to tap off the excess before applying.  They do blend beautifully on the eyes.  I haven't tried applying these damp but I know that they'd really pop considering the shimmery finish.
I decided to create a really fun, dramatic look that I wore to the Bruno Mars concert in Atlanta.
To go with the deep dramatic eyes, I paired Violet Voss' glitter in Paige using their Secret Weapon Glitter Adhesive.  I also used Mein Heir Stained Gloss from OCC for a perfect nude lip that wouldn't battle with the dark eyes.


Hope you all enjoyed!  Up next I have a review and tutorial on Sugarpill's ElektroCute collection, stay tuned!
