A look with Sugarpill's Poison plum

Hi everyone! 

This is a look using my newly acquired e/s from Sugarpill Cosmetics, Poison Plum. I'm going to throw in a mini-review as well. But I don't think I can come up with anything that has not already been said about this product so I am going to do this review a little differently. :) 

Starting with some basics about this e/s

  • Sugarpill describes it as "Dramatic purple with semi-pearly sheen" I completely agree. Dramatic is a great way to describe this purple. 
  • Price: $11.99 = Rs. 608 without taxes, shipping etc. So it's around what we in India pay for a single e/s pan from MAC. 
  • So what else can I say about this product? Blends well, easy to apply, no noticeable fallout....
  • Oh yes, one more thing, it leaves behind a faint stain on skin after removal, so that should give you an idea of how it performs in the pigmentation department.


Here is a look I did with the eyeshadow which I reallllly like. 
I used: 

  • NYX jumbo eye pencil in MILK as base, on lower lash line.
  • Sugarpill's Poison Plum on lid
  • MUG e/s in Mango Tango to blend out above the crease
  • MUG e/s in Cinderella as highlight
  • MAC Fluidline, Blacktrack
  • Maybelline mascara, Great Lash

The colour on my lids is how the colour actually swatches on skin. It's a little more intense in the pan. But this is a colour that can be built up or really sheer-ed out if that makes sense. All in all, I am happy to have finally caved in and bought it. 

So I hope you like the review and the look, do leave your comments and suggestions. Until next time, tata and thank you for stopping by!
