When I received a package from Shrinkle’s designer, Amy Doan, I was surprised to find a little package with a small sample from her up and coming cosmetic line, Sugarpill Cosmetics. I was greeted by a personal note with a sample of a gold loose eye pigment and I do mean GOLD! I was excited by the color as I’m really into golds, coppers, and bronzes to go with my fair skin and blonde hair.

I applied the loose pigment directly to my lid with a soft, fluffy brush and I immediately noticed that the a little goes a long way! The color directly applied to the lid alone was not as intense as I normally like for an evening look, but I would wear it alone for a more subdued day look. I liked that the pigment blended very smoothly when I paired it with a more intense gold eyeshadow as a base, which really brought out the shimmer in the Sugarpill Cosmetics gold pigment. The two paired together made a nice shimmery evening look.
I’m not a professional make-up artist, but I’m a budding make-up enthusiast and I can’t wait to try more Sugarpill Cosmetic products! I love the cosmetic ads for the upcoming launch and I think we’ll have a lot to look forward to from Amy Doan!
