Sugarpill week. Day 2. Sunset makeup looks with the Burning Heart palette

Hey guys!

Today’s post is a special one – it is my 100th blog post 🙂 and, I also noticed that I am at almost 5000 views…may not sound like much, considering there are makeup blogs out there that get this same amount of views per day, but it’s a milestone nonetheless. I think since I started this blog it has changed and become better. It’s still not at the quality I would like it to have, but I am on my way…

Thank you for reading my ramblings and hopefully you actually enjoy and find them useful! I am opened to comments, criticism, suggestions…. whatever you may be interested in, makeup-wise, so feel free to share 🙂 I love receiving your comments…whoever you are…friends, family or complete strangers!


Welcome to day 2 of the Sugarpill week I am having on the blog this week!

Yesterday, day 1, was review and swatches day (interested => click, or just scroll a bit down hehe). As of now though, we get to the really fun part – makeup looks with the Sugarpill products that I have.

First stop on this journey will be the Burning Heart palette:


Bright?…Indeed 😉

Don’t the colours remind you of a sunset?

I came up with two looks, Sunset looks 1 and 2, using all the colours in this palette…I just arranged them differently. I actually showed you one of the looks some time ago on facebook but then I only had bad-quality phone photos and no close-ups.

I did experience some small “bumps on the road” today…messed up on of the looks and had to start all over. Then, my eye decided to get all bitchy on me and started tearing up…bleh! Try lining your waterline when your eye is irritated…not gonna work!!!

After some frustration, here are the makeup looks I created with Sugaprill’s Burning Heart palette:

Sugarpill week. Day 1. Review and Swatches of Burning Heart, Paperdoll and Hellatronic

Hello again!

This is a shaping up to be a productive blue Monday, it has been a while since I pulled off two posts on the same day 🙂

I would like to hereby commence the “Sugarpill week” on longlivemakeup! But let’s take it from the beginning…

After a Black Friday sale in November, my wish to finally obtain some Sugarpill makeup came to life. I already had an idea what I wanted for months, so when the sale began, I just went ahead and placed my order immediately. No second thoughts. I ordered everything straight from the Sugarpill website.

If you are familiar with the company, you know what to expect….if not =>

Sugarpill was founded by Amy a.k.a Shrinkle around 2005, more info on the subject here. When you see her (a photo of her most likely), you instantly know, that this is a makeup brand for alternative people…and when I say alternative, I mean it in the most positive way!!! I am talking bright colours and bold makeup looks. What took me most by surprise is that apparently, even though I never noticed it, I have an alternative bone as well… somewhere deep,deep down. It took makeup to find it out! Ааh, the journey to one’s self works through mysterious ways hahaha 😉

Anyway… I was extremely excited when the package arrived a few weeks later carrying these beautiful goodies:


1x Burning Heart palette

1x Hellatronic neon pigment

1x Chromalust loose eyeshadow in Paperdoll

and a free sample of: Goldilux – one of Sugarpill’s most beloved loose eyeshadows!

Burning Heart is probably the most bold of all Sugarpill palettes in terms of colours. They are very bright and very pigmented:


One thing about all Sugaprill products ( as you can see) is that they have amazing, in my opinion, packaging. It has this hello-kitty, cute feel to it that is just simply adorable and so girly!

The reason I chose the Burning Heart palette is that the colours in it are so unique,so provocative even…and I just needed it in my life. They are all matte eyeshadows, the pans contain quite come product (3.5g) and they are so pigmented…it’s mind-blowing! Swatches without a base:


They feel a bit chalky when you take them on the brush but apply very well, blend effortlessly and stay put for 8-10 hours over eyeshadow base. In fact, Love+ is so pigmented that it tends to stain….meaning you need to really make sure you use plenty of makeup remover, otherwise you get a red stain. I claim this with certainty based on first-hand experience 😉

And speaking of provocative bold shadows, let’s talk about Hellatronic =>


Hellatronic is part of the fairly new ElectroCute sparkling neon pigments collection. Sugarpill took it upon themselves to embark on what seemed like an almost suicide mission: to create matte neon pigments WITH glitter! Partially they succeeded…Hellatronic, together with Sparkage, which is the neon green, are among the successes.

Hellatronic is a fluorescent indigo with red/purple/blue color-shifting super sparkles (Sugarpill description, which I totally concur with). It’s spectacular! I don’t find it too difficult to work just have to be prepared for some fallout. The glitter is amazing and fortunately does stick around for a while.

Again, the packaging it sooo cute, and you get plenty of product: 5g.

Paperdoll is a loose eyeshadow from the Chromalust collection. It a beautiful lavender colour with sparkles:


Papredoll is such a typical colour for me that it was inevitable for us to fall in love at fist sight…I always apply it over the NYX JEP in Milk and I can build up the colour really nicely. Longevity is as expected 8-10 hours over eyeshadow base….I just love this eyeshadow so much! Also, you get more than enough in the jar – 4g.

And last, the free Goldilux sample made my day. Getting a sample is already so cool, but getting one of the most popular Sugarpill products is simply awesome:


Swatches of Paperdoll, Hellatronic and Goldilux applied over bare skin:


Aren’t they beautiful? They are…so very much, that I decided to dedicate a whole week to Sugaprill on my blog.

We started with review and swatches today. During the rest of the Sugaprill week, you will see all of these beauties being used in a variety of (bold, or not) makeup looks.

Do you own anything from Sugarpill? What do you think about this colourful, bright makeup?

Till soon! XOXO
