EDIT: My complaints about the red shade are no more! After a few reader suggestions I contacted Sugarpill with the issue and they determined the palette was defective and exchanged it at no cost to me! They were also super nice and friendly so A++ for their customer service. My Love+ is now amazing!
The Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette is my first, and long overdue, palette from Sugarpill. After listening to my complaints about not having a decent red or yellow, my lovely husband got me this palette for Christmas and I am so so happy to have it in my collection! So let’s get right into the review of this super colorful palette!
OVERALL REVIEW: 7.75
Packaging: Very cutesy so if you’re into cutesy, you’re gonna love it! Has an included mirror & is made of reasonably sturdy feeling cardboard. 7/10
Longevity: Super long lasting yet some colors may stain your skin, namely Poison Plum. 8/10
Application: These colors mostly apply and blend very well, but Love + took some building up. 7/10
Texture: Most shades are perfectly smooth with very minimal fallout. 9/10
Oh, Sugarpill! A cruelty-free brand known for their cutesy marketing, insanely bright & unique colors and over the top makeup. AKA, all the things I adore.
You can pick up the ever lovely Burning Heart Palette for $34, which includes the shades Flamepoint, Buttercupcake, Love + & Poison Plum. Each of the 4 pans contains 0.12oz of product which is really quite large, more than double the size of a MAC eyeshadow pan!
The cardboard packaging opens up to reveal these jaw droppingly gorgeous eyeshadows and a mirror. Despite being cardboard, the packaging does feel rather sturdy and I wouldn’t be too worried about these beauties becoming damaged.
The shades in this palette are just stunning and compliment each other so incredibly well! Even if you aren’t into wearing so many bright colors on your face at once, this palette can still be a fun accent to more neutral looks.
While checking out other reviews for this palette around the web, I noticed that several people had complaints about certain colors in their palette being very dry, lacking in pigmentation, etc. The odd part is it seemed like people were complaining about different colors. There was no one single shade that everyone seemed to be having a problem with so that is a bit strange. Like many other people, one of my shades seemed to be a step behind the rest and that was Love +. It seemed rather dry, stiff, lacking in pigmentation and difficult to get a good swatch of. With that being said, it was still quite buildable and blendable over an eyeshadow primer and a thin layer of white base but it was just rough over bare skin. All of the other shades were just perfect though! Smooth, super pigmented, soft and buttery, blended like a dream. Literally not a single complaint for the formula of my Flamepoint, Buttercupcake or Poison Plum.
So let’s see those swatches!
This is the look I created today using the Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette! I’ve got Buttercupcake blown out in and above my crease, Flamepoint in my crease, Love + on my lid and Poison Plum on my lower lash line. I’m also wearing Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in Jet for my eyeliner here as well as Inglot’s AMC Gel Liner in 79 in my waterline.
And here is the full look! I paired this insanely bright eye with Lime Crime’s Salem on my lips.
