Sugar Blend The Rules Eyeshadow Quads Review, Swatches, Looks
Sugar Cosmetics just launched 18 eyeshadow quads and two eyeshadow palettes. Each eyeshadow quad is priced at Rs.699/- and the palette at Rs.1599/-
I am talking about the eyeshadow quads here but the palettes also have same shades, most of the quads also have repeated shades. You can pick a quad/palette as per your needs. Palettes are divided into two- day time neutrals/warms/browns and more cool toned/bright/smokey/night time palette.
Coming to the quads:
- 01 Stronger
- 02 Believe
- 03 Escapade
- 04 Chandelier
- 05 Irreplacable
- 06 Disturbia
- 07 Applause
- 08 Respect
- 09 Diamonds
- 10 Waterfalls
- 11 Promiscuous
- 12 Complicated
- 13 Paparazzi
- 14 Skyfall
- 15 Bootylicious
- 16 Roar
- 17 Goldeneye
- 18 Scandalous
I have 04 Chandelier, 05 Irreplaceable, 07 Applause, 08 Respect, 13 Paparazzi, 16 Roar
The packaging is cardboard and super light weight, they do not come with a mirror, just a dual sided sponge tip applicator.
The eyeshadows are super pigmented and buttery, the metallic ones are extremely soft and are best applied with your fingers. Even the matte shades are very pigmented and soft, blend easily and there is no fall out with any shadows.
I am highly impressed with the colours and pigmentation, they have some perfect neutrals to blend in the crease and amazing metallic shades for the lid. All the shades would work well for Indian warm skin tones and most of the shades are also Indian wedding/festive looks appropriate. There are also blues and plums for general wear, night time looks, neutral mattes for office wear, basically a quad for every occasion.
The only problem is repeated shades, I would have preferred launching just palettes or 5-6 quads with different shades. Here you cannot buy 2-3 eyeshadow quad and not have at least one eyeshadow repeated. It doesn’t make sense to have same shades if you want to buy 2-3 quads and like all other shades in the quads. I personally won’t invest in 2 quads even if one eyeshadow is repeated, because I prefer owning different shades. And most of you would think the same.
Best they could do, (or they can still) is to have a separate pan and separate singles to customize and make your own palette. Let the price remain the same.
Each quad is 5g, so each shadow is 1.25g though it looks like a 2g pan width wise, it is not very deep inside. I tried to depot the shadows as I didn’t want to keep the entire eyeshadow quad with repeated shades for 1-2 shades in it. One crumbled and one was dented, so I didn’t. I managed to depot one, and one quad has all same shades, so I am giving away two of the eyeshadow quads on my YouTube channel, join here below.
Here are all the quads..
I created a plum pink smokey eye with Applause and a matte peachy look with 16 Roar using just the two matte shades.
Overall I would say I am highly impressed with the quality of the eyeshadows and they are the best available right now for this price, only con would be the combination of shades in the quads. I would recommend getting the daytime palette as it has almost all their best shades and you could make more use of it on an everyday basis.
