Makeup Monday: Lemon Lime Sugar








Products used (left to right, top to bottom): Urban Decay Primer Potion, Sugarpill Acidberry (all over lid), Buttercupcake (inner lid and blended above crease) from the Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette, Midori (outer lid) and Tako (inner eye) from the Sugarpill Sweetheart Palette, Sugarpill Saint false lashes, SensatioNail gel in Kitten Heel, Kiss Nail Dress in Eyelet, MAC Candy Yum-Yum (with Tako dusted and blotted on the inside of my lips for dimension). Nanette Lepore Flaming Love top.


I've been meaning to try Sugarpill cosmetics forever, but it seems like every time I would remember to check out the site (which, given my forgetful nature, was admittedly not that often), the products I wanted to try were sold out. That's usually a pretty good sign, so it made me want to buy them even more. I followed Shrinkle on LiveJournal years and years ago; we were both members of many of the same DIY sales communities, and I always admired her sewing and makeup skills. When she came out with her own makeup line, I had a feeling it would be amazing. And guess what? It is. I'm extremely late to the game, I know! I ordered a couple of palettes, some lashes, and several loose shadows. I haven't used the loose ones yet (I did swatch them and they're beautiful) but I wanted to play around with some of the colors for a fun, colorful look. I did something to match my nails, which are still going strong after two weeks - thanks, Amanda! They're growing out but the polish is still intact, which is pretty impressive since I'm extremely hard on my nails. I had my sister keep my ring finger blank so I could switch it up with stickers. I get bored easily, so it was a good way to keep things fresh. I've already gone through three different designs, but this one reminds me of my 80s childhood dreams, so it's my favorite. Clearly, I wasn't going for subtlety.

  9. I really like these colors, but wish the photos were a bit more true to life color wise. I've been looking for a green similar but these are so blown out light wise I can't tell if it would be right. :/

    You look great either way though :D

    1. What kind of greens are you looking for? These are very vivid - I can show you some unedited iPhone pics to demonstrate or swatch in natural light. Sugarpill is more suitable if you're looking for very pigmented, bright colors. I can suggest some others if you're looking for anything specific!

  22. You look amazing, looove the lashes on you! Though I have to say I'd like to see more hairstyling with your new short hair down. i was so looking forward to that when you cut your hair and it seems like you still pull it back most days. I don't blame you though, with a face like that you should show it off!

    1. I know - it's the whole hair on the neck thing that I can't get over. I hate that feeling! I start with my hair down, most days - and it just depends on the time of day I end up taking photos. Haha! I do have my hair down in the next few posts, though - and I promise I will do more hairstyling posts.
