Sugarpill Mochi Eyeshadow Review+Swatches

 Sugarpill says their Pressed Eyeshadows are "richly pigmented, velvety smooth, luxury pressed eyeshadows for all night party wear". Right now, Sugarpill offers 21 shades, today's review features Mochi. Mochi can be purchased individually (3.5 grams/$12), or as part of the Heart Breaker quad ($34). Sugarpill prides themselves in being cruelty free, and almost all of their prpducts, including this eyeshadow, are vegan friendly. Sugarpill products are made in the USA - California, to be precise!

Sugarpill's individual pressed eyeshadows come in black plastic pans with clear flip tops that feature the brand's logo. The shade name can be found on the back of the little round compacts. Sorry that I can't provide pictures - all of my Sugarpill shadows are housed in Sugarpill's Pro Palette.
I know almost everyone raves about Sugarpill's Eyeshadows, but honestly I feel like they're very hit or miss. I love some, but others are pretty disappointing. Mochi is somewhere between - its just ok. Mochi has a weird texture, its soft, not too powdery, yet its kinda thin, if that makes sense. This minty eyeshadow has decent pigmentation, but it blends down to a faint representation of it's self. Mochi is easy to blend with other shades, its quite pliable on the eye, but you have to go back in with more color if you want it to stay true to color. I get great wear from Sugarpill's Mochi Eyeshadow - it doesn't fade or crease for up to nine hours. This eyeshadow removes easily, but it leaves behind a faint stain. 

Sugarpill calls Mochi a "matte, mint seafoam". This is a warm, light, minty aqua shade with a flat, nearly chalky matte finish.
Sugarpill's Mochi Eyeshadow is a miss for me. This is an uncommon, beautiful mint shade, but the formula could be improved upon. Color payoff is good, but the thin, dry formula causes it to blend away to nothing - how disappointing. Skip Mochi, Sugarpill has better eyeshadows to offer. I'll update this post if and when I find a superior dupe.
