I've finally received my Sugarpill Cosmetics Cold Chemistry palette in the mail! Hooray!!!
Finally, my dream come true! Sugarpill describes this palette as:
"A luxury eyeshadow collection created in collaboration with Amelia Arsenic, designer of cult fashion and art brand A is for Arsenic London.
This dark collision of glamour and nocturnal worlds features four richly pigmented, shimmering meteoric shades which blend seamlessly together. The collection combines Amelia's dark aesthetic with Sugarpill's trademark velvety smooth eyeshadow formula. "

So, for those of you who don't know, I've been obsessed with Amelia and her band (Angelspit) for literally YEARS now (we're talking since like 2007). So once I heard she was collaborating with Sugarpill, one of my favorite makeup brands, I just died on the inside. I had to have it!
I was seriously dying of anticipation for over a year for this collection! Ever since Sugarpill even hinted at it, I knew it was something that needed to be in my life!
The packaging design on this is incredible. I adore Amelia's design work!
This palette includes four shimmery shades. Soot & Stars, Diamond Eyes, Elemental Chaos, and Subterranean.
Soot & Stars - Metallic gunmetal with prismatic sparkle
Diamond Eyes - Satin white with crystalline sheen
Elemental Chaos - Deep grape shimmer with iridescent blue undertones.
Subterranean - Lustrous peacock green with navy blue undertones

My favorite shade so far is Soot & Stars, it's just so smoky and delicious! My least favorite in the palette is surprisingly Elemental Chaos. It's the most chunky/difficult to work with in my opinion. However, it's not unusable. These shades are all shimmery, and something a little different from the bright, neon world of Sugarpill we all know and love.
I am absolutely adoring this collection. I can see myself wearing/using this palette for the next week for sure!
