Sugarpill Afterparty Eyeshadow Review+Swatches

 Sugarpill says their pressed eyeshadows are "richly pigmented, velvety smooth, luxurious pressed eyeshadows for all night party wear." There are 21 shades to choose from, today's review features Afterparty. This eyeshadow can be bought as a single (3.5 grams/$12), or as part of the Sweetheart Quad ($34). Sugarpill is cruelty free and most of their products, including the Afterparty eyeshadow, are vegan. This eyeshadow was made in the USA.

Sugarpill's eyeshadows come in small, round plastic compacts with a black pan and clear flip lid that bears the Sugarpill logo. The shade name is indicated on the bottom of the compact. Sorry I can't show you any packaging photos, all of my Sugarpill shadows are housed in the trade show exclusive Sugarpill Pro Palette.
 Afterparty is an excellent eyeshadow! This pressed eyeshadow is so creamy and smooth, it barely feels like a powder at all! The only texture problem I can see is that this bright blue eyeshadow kicks up a little bit of excess powder - but not enough to cause fallout during application. Afterparty is thick with pigment, and applies evenly with full opacity. This eyeshadow blends easily while remaining true to color. The icing on the cake? When worn over primer, I get over nine hours of crease free wear with only a hint of fading!

 Sugarpill describes Afterparty as a "bright turquoise with a semi-pearl sheen". I'm not really seeing turquoise here, are you? I'd call Afterparty a bright, medium blue - the color of blue raspberry candy. This intense blue shadow has a satin finish. A few little flecks of silver shimmer can be found within Afterparty, but they don't make enough of an impact to influence the overall finish - actually, you probably won't even notice them.
Sugarpill's Afterparty is a beautiful bright blue eyeshadow with a great formula - its pigmented and long wearing, and best of all, affordable! If Afterparty is your kind of color, I definitely recommend picking it up - I highly doubt that you'll be disappointed!
