Sugarpill Paperdoll ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow Review+Swatches

 Sugarpill calls their ChromaLust pigments "glamorous, sparkling loose eyeshadows that outshine them all. These ultra fine, metallic powders combine show stopping color with adhesive elements for long lasting wear." These pigments are available in fourteen shades, today I'm reviewing Paperdoll. Each ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow contains 4 grams (.14 oz) and sell for $12 a piece. Sugarpill is cruelty free, and most of their products, including Paperdoll, are vegan friendly. This eyeshadow was made in the USA, California to be exact.

 Sugarpill's ChromaLusts come in colorful boxes that offer plenty of product information and an ingredient list. The loose eyeshadows are housed in clear, stout, round jar with black caps. The Sugarpill logo decorates the top of the cap, and the shade name is clearly labeled on the bottom of the jar. These pigment jars have no sifter. Packaging does not seem to be recyclable.
 Sugarpill's Paperdoll ChromaLust is a super fine, soft, powdery pigment. Personally, I find Paperdoll to be kinda fussy and hard to work with. Because this loose shadow is so finely milled, it can be difficult to pick up and keep on a brush. Paperdoll causes a fair bit of fallout, mostly from the glitter particles, which aren't bound well to the rest of the pigment. This loose eyeshadow isn't particularly pigmented on it's own, but a primer vastly improves color payoff. Foiling will also increases pigmentation, but makes Paperdoll more difficult to work with. Used dry, this pigment blends easily. Wear is pretty good, this eyeshadow lasts seven to eight hours before it starts to crease and fade.
 Paperdoll is so pretty! Sugarpill describes it as a "lovely lavender with dazzling shimmer and sparkle." This is a beautiful, cool toned lilac with sparse flecks of small and medium silver glitter. Paperdoll has a soft, shimmery finish that gives this color such an ethereal effect.
Sugarpill's Paperdoll ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow didn't really impress me, honestly. This pigment is too powdery, and the glittery bits don't adhere to the eyelid, causing some seriously sparkly fallout. Color payoff could also be stronger, a primer is essential. I can look past the problematic application for the gorgeous, shimmering lilac shade. Grab Paperdoll if you like the color, but I wouldn't call it a must have.
