Sugarpill Haul

Heeeey lovelies!!
Though I am on a spending ban, this is an exception as I ordered it way before I had decided to go on this spending ban.
I envy you Americans! You have all the stores I wish London had; Sephora, Sugarpill, Ulta and my never-ending list of your great stores continue!
I discovered sugarpill from a fellow blogger, who had been waiting patiently so she can purchase it at IMATS, however, we do not have a sugarpill UK store nor do they have a representation at IMATS UK. After endless researching I pretty much were satisfied and assured that these shadows were good value for your money (at 12 dollars per eye shadow - a steal if you ask me!) PLUS I was delighted to find that sugarpill do international shipping! (You should have seen my reaction when I popped onto their website. However, the eye shadows that I wanted were out of stock!! (Very annoying).
Despite being disappointed that I may not be able to make a order, I subscribed to their newsletter. Can you guess what happened next?
I got an inbox saying all the eye shadows had been restocked!! I think I just dove on my laptop and ordered straight away.. though, through all the excitement I forgot to purchase two eye shadows I initially wanted to purchase.
Nonetheless, after 3 weeks, I have received my package...

2am. A purple pigment

Acidberry. A lime green pigment

Buttercupcake. A yellow pigment

Dollipop. A fuchsia pigment 

Stella. A black pigment with sparkles engrossed 

Tako. A white pigment

Velocity. A royal blue pigment

I decided I wanted to try out the, very much raved about, duo lash adhesive. But, I was not keen on buying it in the UK as most retail stores sell in for 10 pounds, which, to me, did not seem like the smartest thing to spend 10 pounds on. So when I came across it on sugarpill for $6 you can imagine how ecstatic I was.
I also received some freebies; a sugarpill sticker and a sample eye shadow. Goldilux was actually on of the eye shadows I forgot to purchase so I was happy to receive the sample as I can try out whether I like the pigment or not.


PROS
Cute packaging
Very pigmented shadows
A generous amount of shadow per pan
Quick international shipping
No unpleasant smell from shadow
Affordable
Exciting selection of shades


CONS
If you live in the UK and want to purchase from this brand DO be prepared to pay customs! On their website they play around and say that you may, however it is GUARANTEED you will be paying customs charge as well as a royal mail handling fee.

Overall I am pleased with my purchase, though I will not be ordering from them as now I have found a UK stockist; Love MakeUp.

Have you yet to try any sugarpill products? If yes how did you find them?

  4. You can buy Sugarpill in the UK. But Yeah due to customs I avoid buying a lot of stuff. I find it a joke that in the 21 century we have to pay customs for personal items.
