I debated whether or not to actually review this since it sold out so fast on the Sugarpill site, but I figured why not post some swatches anyway? I purchased the full collection, which includes the Edward Scissorhands palette and 2 nail polishes.
The first nail polish is Ice Angel, which is a snowflake-like topcoat. It has different sizes of white glitter (I guess you would call it glitter?) in a clear base.
Then we have The Inventor, inspired by Vincent Price's character in the movie. This is a dark gray cream with holographic glitters.
These pair really well together as well. In the swatches below are Ice Angel, The inventor, and then Ice Angel on top of The Inventor:
I had never tried Sugarpill nail polishes before, but the formula is awesome. These swatches are just one coat of each!
Then we have this beautifully designed palette.
The packaging is cardboard, but it's pretty heavy duty. It also came in a sleeve with the same design on it.
Inside you get 6 shades that are definitely reminiscent of the movie. When I first saw pictures of this online, I thought "How in the world are you going to use those colors together?" But you'd be surprised! They actually go together really well.
On the top row we have Home Sweet Home, a baby blue matte:
Then Ice Angel, which looks white but is actually a duochrome with a blue shift to it:
And The Inventor, which is similar to the nail polish. This is a deep gray with a slight sparkle:
Then in the second row we have Suburbia, a matte salmon shade. This showed up super bright on my camera for some reason, and way more orangey than it actually is! The swatch of it is more true to color.
Heart Shaped cookie, which is a matte nude shade:
And Castle on the Hill, which is a matte rich brownish burgundy:
As usual with Sugarpill's shadows, they're all extremely pigmented and awesomely blendable and easy to work with. I hope you were able to pick this up if you were drooling over it like I was! I also love that we got to see a (somewhat) neutral palette from Sugarpill!
