Capsule Collection C1
Sugarpill Capsule Collection C1 Capsule Collecction is a new, permanent palette that featured 10 shades across both matte and shimmer finishes. The largest pan is designed to be used as a blush as well. The pigmentation was good across the board, and despite having some harder-to-make shades, it applied relatively easily for me. I felt like I was getting true-to-pan intensity and didn’t have to spend a lot of effort blending the shades out.
Sugarpill Glory Pressed Eyeshadow
Glory is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, blendable, and balanced between firm and soft so that it wasn’t too powdery but was easy to work with. It had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
Supernova is an icy lavender with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a stronger, more reflective sheen, so against my skin tone, it appeared more pigmented than it actually was as a result. The texture was smooth, dense and firm without being too stiff or too thick, and applied evenly to bare skin. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.
Sugarpill Baby Doll Pressed Eyeshadow
Baby Doll is a light, bluish-lavender with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer over bare skin–impressive given the paleness and finish, so if you’re someone who normally uses primer, it should be even easier to work with. The texture was slightly firmer in the pan, which minimized powderiness and potential for fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Sugarpill Radiate Pressed Eyeshadow
Radiate is a light-medium chartreuse with warmer undertones and cooler overtones. The shade darkened noticeably and unevenly on bare skin, and even over primer, it wasn’t as consistent in color and tone as I would have wanted. I found that actual application–applied and diffused on my lid area–went better than it appeared just swatched on my arm but still underwhelming. It had good coverage that wore well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.
Ember is a bright, highlighter yellow with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a green tinge to it that kept from being really gold to my eye. The consistency was a bit denser and more firmly-pressed into the pan, but it wasn’t difficult to pick up using a moderate hand and a shader brush. The product applied evenly and lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.
Sugarpill Undone Pressed Pigment
Undone is a medium purple with warmer, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly to bare skin and didn’t take too much effort to diffuse and blend out, though it would benefit from a primer for more foolproof/easier application. The texture was slightly firmer but had enough give to pick up well with a brush and could be deposited with a fluffier brush as well. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Melody is a brighter, darker pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, soft enough to be yielding and blendable when applied but firm enough that it wasn’t overly powdery. It applied evenly to bare skin and diffused easily along the edges without darkening unexpectedly. It wore well for nine hours before fading a bit.
Cloud 9 is a bright, medium blue-leaning aqua with cool undertones and a metallic finish. The consistency was denser, slightly creamier, but on the thicker side, which isn’t my ideal when working with so many mattes, but it applied fairly well with a dry brush. I was able to smooth out the product to get a more even finish that played well with other shades in the palette, but I would recommend a slightly firmer, denser brush with it. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
Dream State is a rosy, lavender base with warmer, green-gold shifting pearl that gave it a smooth, metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a more softly-pressed texture that was best worked with using a lighter hand or else it was easy to pick up excessive product that resulted in fallout. It applied evenly and blended out well, and it stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Sugarpill Slow Dive Pressed Pigment
Slow Dive is a bright, cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that sheered out a touch when initially applied. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
