I am always on a lookout for good drugstore products. Sugar is one the best drugstore brands in India and I have heard ladies rave about its lipsticks and face palettes. I personally never tried any of the Sugar cosmetics products. So thought to start with an eyeshadow palette. Today I am going to talk about the Sugar Blend the Rules eyeshadow quad in variant Believe.
Price – Rs.699/-
Packaging – It has a pretty standard Sugar cardboard packaging (for those who have used Sugar products). The palette is small and compact. Only thing I did not like is that it didn’t have a mirror. When you open the top cardboard flap you will find the 4 shadows which are covered by a see through plastic sheet. The cardboard flap has magnetic lock but I would not travel with it. There are chances that the flap will open and the product will be damaged.
Shades – This quad has all the pinky mauvey shades in it. All these colors are enough to create an mauve smokey eye look. There is one transition shade. One darker crease shade and two shimmery lid colors.
Pigmentation/ Texture – The shadows are extremely pigmented. Especially the shimmer shadows. They are so beautiful. They are really buttery and quite blendable. You have to work a little bit with the darker shadows. But then again that is the case with most dark eye shadows. I created this spotlight smokey eye using all of these shadows and I loved how it turned out.
I did use an additional black eye and a brownish purple shadow to create that halo effect by deepening the inner and outer v of my eye lids.
All in all, this is a good affordable eye shadow quad and I am definitely going to try other variants from this range.
