Makeup Geek Duochrome Pigment in Sugar Rush

Not going to lie, I bought this because the name reminds me of Wreck-It-Ralph. haha! I'm not the biggest fan of the texture here, but this is a very pretty shade. Let's have a peek!
At first glance this just looks like a cream shade in the pot. As you can see, it's got a chunky texture to it and that makes for a lot of fallout. I recommend using a flat, stiff brush to apply, and use what's in the lid instead of digging right into the jar. (These do come with sifters, but I hate sifters so I didn't use it).
The texture reminds me of the Kat Von D pigments, which, even though that is my FAVORITE brand ever, those I will admit were not the greatest of her products. Most of them were hard to work with, much like this one.
The color itself is very icy - it flashes green and blue depending on what way you're looking at it. It looks awesome over a black base, and as long as you apply it over a sticky base to begin with, it lasts just fine on the eyes. I can see it creasing on me in the hotter months, but I haven't had too much of an issue thus far.
I tried to take a few shots from different angles, but you can't really see how pretty it is unless you see it in person. I hope that in the future they'll be able to make the formula better, because I think this would be a home run if it wasn't for the chunkiness of it!
