Single Pressed Eyeshadows by Sugarpill Cosmetics – Review, Swatches & Dupes

Hello my lovely pumpkins and happy Monday!

Today, I am sharing with you my review on Sugarpill Cosmetics’ single eyeshadows. I received them over a month ago but it took me so much time to try them out honestly, don’t know why.  It’s the first time I ever try this brand and I made the decision when I moved to Canada that I wanted to try as much new brands as I can [yes that’s why I spent 200$ on Colourpop products, lol] so here we are.

Also, I currently have nothing to review anymore, I don’t have any new products, I went to Sephora before yesterday to buy myself a new foundation and concealer [cause I need new ones ASAP] but they were out of stock of the shade I wanted 🙁 So I have to wait till it’s available to buy them and to review them for you.

On another note, I decided to start rating this products to make it more useful for you.

ANYWAYS, don’t forget to check out my previous post: Top 5 Spooky Shows To Watch On Netflix and let’s get started

Product Information

I got myself three shades out of all the shades they offer which are: Buttercupcake [yellow], Mochi [mint blue] and Tako [pure white].

All of them come with 3.5g of product, which is a lot because regular single eyeshadows come with 1.5g of product, wow and you can either get them in a pretty packaging or just as refills for a personalized palette.

If you get them as just refills, each costs 10$ but if you get them in a packaging, each costs 13$.

Sugarpill offer an amazing selection of colors that are super original and unique, and the brand is cruely-free/vegan.

You can get hold of SugarPill’s products on Beauty Bay [but I wouldn’t advice it cause they are 1$ more expensive] or on their website

Packaging 3.5/5


If you get the single eyeshadow in a packaging, not as refills, you’ll get them in a pretty medical looking packaging: everything looks white, the opening is transparent with the logo of the brand in bold. The packaging is super simple, surely to keep the price down but honestly, it reflects very well the theme behind Sugarpill cosmetics, which is “medical”. For 13$, the packaging is decent, pretty secure and practical. I also love the names of the eyeshadows, even though I don’t see the link with medicine or with the shades, only with food :p.

Behind the eyeshadow, you get all of the information concerning the eyeshadow including the name and expiration date.

Formula 3.5/5

Now, let’s talk about how they perform: all of the shades I got are very pigmented, easy to blend and have no fallouts [maybe they have a little bit as I always tap off the excess before applying any eyeshadow on my eye] but they do have a lot of kickbacks. Like, literally while writing this review, I opened the white shade on top of my laptop and all of the dust fell on my keyboard so now my laptop is super dusty and dirty, yay! :p

One important thing is that the colors appear on the eyes very saturated and as beautiful as they do on the pan. However, I feel like the white shade cannot be built up without looking chalky. Out of the 3, I think the yellow would be my favorite shade and the one shade I’ll advice you to buy. With this shade, I also created two looks on my blog: Halloween Makeup Look #4: Bats Cut Crease and Autumnal Makeup look: Yellow Cutcrease.

To be honest, these are not the best formula in the market but I do enjoy them, especially for the price and since the colors are unique, I’ll continue using them until I find a brand that sells those colors [Morphe x James Charles, I am crying]




The main reason why I decided to buy these eyeshadows is because of the colors and the fact that I couldn’t find a great yellow shade from a brand that is cruelty-free. I totally recommend this brand if you are looking for unique colors, the price is not high and damn you get  3.5g of product. I ordered mine from Beauty Bay because I also wanted products from Dose Of Colors by the way.


For the shade Mochi and Buttercupcake, NYX has a really nice palette with a decent formula named “Ultimate Shadow palette” in Brights.

I also advice you to check out Morphe’s new collaboration with James Charles, the palette that they created contains an amazing white and yellow!

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and if you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog [you can do that by email or wordpress].

    These colors are so fun!! Yellow is my favorite color, but I have never thought to try it in an eye shadow.

      it’s a really fun color to play around with! I definitely advice you to use it in a eye makeup look since it’s your favorite color! Thanks for passing by xx

    I’m always trying to find good cruelty free makeup brands. I also like that you can purchase them individually, at a totally reasonable price.

      yes exactly, of course if you end purchasing 4 eyeshadows, they end up expensive, but if you want one or two, the price is still reasonable! Thanks for passing by xx

    I find good yellow shadows are kind of hard to find! The swatch of this yellow is stunning & it’s good to hear the colour pigmentation is as good on the eye. Fab review lovely ! X

    The pigments do look very strong indeed! But bright green and yellow are perfect for autumn! I love that they are cruelty free!

      yes same!! Thanks for reading xx

    Those colours are gorgeous. That bluey / turquoise is literally my favourite colour EVER. But I bet the yellow looks stunning – especially around Autumn too!

    Ok, I’m actually in love with that yellow shade. I recently got yellow shade from Essence, but it’s not super pigmented unfortunately, but this one seems just right for me. Will search for this brand as I never really heard of them. xx

    The swatches look very pigmented. Did you find them to be chalky?

    • Joy🌻
      November 5, 2018 / 6:22 pm

      no, just the white shade a bit. The yellow shade is amazing!!

    The colours are so vibrant and even though you didn’t rate them extremely highly they do seem like good value! 🙂

    Hope that you are having a good week so far! Another hot day here, but I had the day off to enjoy it 🙂

    Buttercupcake has been on my wishlist forever! I’m just not willing to pay shipping for just one shade, I wish these were sold in store somewhere. I’ll probably just buy a dupe. Great review!

    • Joy🌻
      November 10, 2018 / 12:34 pm

      yes I understand and that’s exactly why I ordered from Beauty Bay. so I can purchase other stuff and the shipping ended up to be for free cause I spent over 50$ I think

  15. November 11, 2018 / 4:33 pm

    The colours are very vibrant and fun 😀 xx

    Fantastic review! ♥️ Those are some boastful colors, and it appears that you would have to be creative enough to blend all those wild colors. Since I am a newbie, I would stick to a more neutral palette. xx

      Thank you very much!! yes they are hard to work with if you are not comfortable at applying makeup, indeed!! I do love neutrals!!
