This is my first SUGAR BOX Eyeshadow Palette¬†(US$7.99)from ebay, and I’ll admit I was a bit skeptic at first. But there was a week when I found myself always reaching out for this palette when I’m doing my makeup.¬†I got this for the holiday and I’m totally in love with¬†this palette.

Let’s jump right in, shall we!

The eyeshadow palette I got is in¬†Natural Eye Makeup #03. Here’s a summary of this product:

Pros:

  • Contain 10 pretty color shadows for different neutral¬†look
  • In this palette there are four¬†matte and six shimmering jewel¬†finish shadows
  • Packed with nice versatile shade selection.
  • These are warm undertones shades that looks pretty amazing on the palette¬†
  • Nicely pigmented color with¬†smooth & silk texture ‚̧
  • Love the packaging

Cons:

  • Would be great if they name their palettes instead of by # numbers. Less confusing
  • Some shadows I noticed to be a bit tardy on fall out

Let me elaborate more of this product.

I was so excited! I did the¬†color swatch upon opening the package. Here’s the color swatch on bare arm (meaning with eye primer or base). Guys, what you see is what you get. These shadows stay true to its colors.

As far as the packaging goes, the size of the palette is small and sleek enough for travel and has a good size mirror with a decent duo eyeshadow brush which you could actually use if you want to.

The pigmentation on these eyeshadows are quite impressive for the price.¬†They’re not the best but it does give you a good color payoff with a good primer or base on. I also noticed that they’re long wearing and doesn’t budge.

The matte formula are unbelievably buttery and smooth.¬†For the price, I consider this eyeshadow palette to be a pretty good buy. It has what you need and it does the job right. I will repurchase this again. I’m in love with the smooth texture and the neutral shades¬†are just amazing.

Overall Rating: 4 out 5

The formula is so buttery¬†and it gives a lovely satin and pearly finish¬†on the¬†shades except for Sexy, Serious and Sleek¬†which I find it to be of matte finish.

For this look, I used several of these stunning shades from the palette namely – Snobby for the lids, Sultry for my crease, Stubborn for the outer lids with Sassy as the highlighting. I used the J Cats eyeliner and Covergirl mascara. To my surprised, the shades I that used weren’t too shimmery at all. Which is fabulous! It gives a soft satin finish that makes my eyes look natural and I’m loving it ūüôā

If you really want to have a freaking gorgeous eyeshadow palette. I would recommend that you try this Nude ‘tude palette by thebalm.¬†Look no further, it’s a wonderful, wonderful eyeshadow palette ūüôā
