Pink Sugar Eye Candy Eye Shadow Palette in EC-01

It’s heating up for election time! As I’m typing this, I’m watching the presidential candidate debate. While I won’t be sharing any political views here, I will note how everyone around me is anything but neutral about their presidentiable bet. It’s practically a war breaking out on Facebook. But unlike local politics, the Pink Sugar Eye Candy Eye Shadow Palette in EC-01 (PHP 699) is a fair mix of neutral and cool. (See what I did there?)

Pink Sugar Eye Candy Ingredients

Packed in a colorful patterned box, the Eye Candy eyeshadow palette has a notably pretty presentation. The shiny black plastic palette that houses the ten shadows inside has a satisfying heft and a tight-fitting snap closure that gives the packaging a more expensive look and feel. The same pattern on the box is stamped on the lid in a simple black-and-pink theme. Inside, there’s a big mirror and a dual-ended sponge-tip applicator and synthetic fine brush combo.

The first five shadows consist of a satiny baby pink, a medium brownish dusty rose, a medium pink with a touch of peach, a shimmery silvery pink, and a shimmery peachy pink. The second set of shadows are made up of a shimmery pinkish bronze, a shimmery green-blue, a dark teal with blue shimmer, a shimmery silvery black, and a matte black. I notice that the latter five are a bit harder to rub off than the former five, so that may factor into the longevity of the palette.

Pink Sugar Eye Candy Swatches

Initially, I used a fluffy shader brush to apply the colors, since I usually only use the included sponge-tip applicators when I travel. I noticed that the pigment had trouble adhering to the brush hairs, even to the synthetic brush included in the palette. I would pack on the shadow, but to no avail. Then I decided to use the sponge-tip applicator, and it got so much more pigment to my lids! The same goes for using fingers. The included synthetic brush is best for using the shadow as a liner. It’s better for precision application, otherwise the shadow tends to look patchy with it.

Application is smooth and I was surprised that there was no fallout. Blending is easier with a brush, but also doable with the shadow sponge. What’s more, the longevity was actually good. The shadows went beyond the 6-hour mark, especially the darker shades.

Here are three looks I achieved using this palette:

Verdict: A self-confessed neutral shadow addict, I found Pink Sugar Eye Candy EC-01 to be a convincing case to make for cool-toned shadows. Overall, I feel like you get a good deal on the price for the quality of shadows you get.
