Sugarpill Feline Fancy Makeup Collection Review, Swatches, and Dupes

Review, Swatches, and Dupes
Feline Fancy Makeup Collection
Picture taken from the Sugarpill website.

There's no hiding that Sugarpill is by far one of my favorite makeup brands on the market. The shadow quality, formula, and wide selection of colors is absolutely incredible and extremely consistent throughout the whole brand. They are also cruelty free and most of their products are vegan friendly. A little over a week ago Sugarpill announced that they were going to have a limited edition makeup collection for Valentine's Day including an eyeshadow palette and liquid lipstick by the name of Feline Fancy. Of course since I love cats and red eyeshadows, I was on my laptop hitting the refresh button until I was able to purchase it right at noon PST the day it launched. 

One of the things that drew me into purchasing this collection is the packaging that showcases the artwork of Brandi Milne. It's very quirky and super cute and definitely a conversation piece on a vanity. Another thing that drew me in is the eyeshadow palette, and the beautiful colors that it contained. 

I hope you enjoy my review and the swatches and dupes that I included. If you have any questions just leave me a comment below.

Product Information:

This palette is priced at $48 and includes a 4-pan eyeshadow palette and 1 liquid lipstick in 'Strange Love' that are both exclusive to this collection only. 

The collection comes in a larger box that has a very luxurious rubberized feel to the packaging, and is extremely well made for being cardboard packaging. The palette itself is in the typical cardboard casing like all of the other Sugarpill palettes. The liquid lipstick however is in the standard Sugarpill liquid lipstick packaging and has no special packaging.

The palette contains 2.5 grams of product per eyeshadow being 10 grams of product for the entire palette. The liquid lipstick contains 0.18 grams ounces of product, which is a large amount of product for a liquid lipstick. 

When you calculate it down, Sugarpill's liquid lipsticks are priced at $18 a piece, and being that the collection is $48, you would be paying $30 for the palette itself. 

When calculated you are paying $100 per ounce for the liquid lipstick, which is a pretty good price and is in comparison to Jeffree Star's Liquid Lipstick prices.
You would also be paying $3 a gram for the palette itself, which is an ok price to pay.

Swatches and Review:



Swatches of the entire collection
Left to Right: Strange Love, Kiss Kiss, Text Me, Wink, S.W.A.K

For reference my skin tone is the same as the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation in Shade #42. 

Reviews on Each Shade:

Strange Love: This is a dark red/oxblood liquid lipstick with red shimmer within it. It is definitely metallic and opaque in color. It reminds me a lot of Jeffree Star's Unicorn Blood, but metallic. It's a fairly unique shade, but also made my teeth look slightly yellow. It took awhile for this to dry down and it took well over 10 minutes to do so, which I wasn't impressed with. However, with the color being as beautiful as it is, I can over look it. It is definitely a color that is unique within my collection.

Kiss Kiss: This is a red metallic shade that is extremely rich in pigment and very opaque. Sugarpill states on their website that this is a foiled eyeshadow. This is by far my favorite shade within the palette and is fairly unique in color. With one swipe you get full pigment and do not have to continuously pack on color in order to get it to look like the color in the pan. This shadow is a bit powdery when dipping your brush inside the pan. However, it is very buttery in texture and blends very well. If you are like me and have a hard time using Sugarpill's Asylum pigment, this is definitely a good pressed alternative to it. If you love red shadows, you will love this. 

Text Me: This shadow is a very pretty warm toned light brown and is the only matte shade in the collection. Going to be honest this is the weakest shadow in the palette and is the only shade that swatched patchy.  It blends alright but isn't anything fantastic either. This shadow is also not very unique and is easily found in a number of other eyeshadow palettes. If you have a lot of neutral palettes already from other brands, chances are you already own this shade. I was fairly disappointed in this shadow and wished that it was more pigmented like the rest. However, I do like that they included a matte transition shade to be able to create a whole look with this palette itself. 

Wink: This shade is a gorgeous pink champagne shade that is in a metallic/foiled finish. This shadow is extremely shimmery and is very beautiful and universal. The pigmentation is fantastic and it is opaque if you choose for it to be. This shadow is extremely buttery and applies easily, however like Kiss Kiss it is a bit powdery when you put your brush in the pan. It blended very easily for me as well. However, like Text Me, this shade is not very unique in color and easily found in a number of other palettes. It is a very standard eyeshadow/highlighter that you can find from a number of brands in other neutral eyeshadow palettes. I was hoping for this shadow to be a bit more unique but it wasn't. It does make a great inner corner highlight and can be used all over the face as a gorgeous highlighter. 

S.W.A.K: This shade is a medium pink foiled shadow that has gold reflects in it. This shade definitely screams Valentine's Day to me. It is very pigmented and opaque in coverage. It is a unique shadow and is extremely pretty on the eyelid. Like with Wink and Kiss Kiss, this shadow is a bit powdery in texture, but also blends like butter. This is another shadow that I was extremely impressed with and will definitely be reaching for regularly. I find a lot of pink shadows to be too neon pink for me, or they are too fuchsia toned, this one is a gorgeous shade of pink that is one of my new favorites in my collection. The gold reflects are also absolutely stunning, and if you apply this wet they become a lot more prominent. Definitely a very beautiful eyeshadow and if you love pink rose colors, you will love this!

Two pictures in different lighting. 

Left to Right:
  
Sugarpill - 'Kiss Kiss'
Sugarpill -  'Asylum' (dry)
Sugarpill - 'Text Me'
Too Faced - 'Salted Caramel'
Tarte - 'Crystal Spark'
Sugarpill - 'Wink'
Too Faced - 'Divinity'
Sugarpill - 'S.W.A.K'
Urban Decay - 'Sonic'

For reference my skin tone is the same as the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation in Shade #42. 
Eyeshadow Dupes:

Kiss Kiss: The closest dupe I could find for 'Kiss Kiss' was actually Sugarpill's loose pigment in Asylum. Asylum is just a touch more orange than 'Kiss Kiss' when dry, but when it's used wet it is more intense in pigmentation. However, Asylum is very hard to work with, whereas Kiss Kiss is very easy to use and blends like butter.

Text Me: The closest dupe for 'Text Me' in my collection was Salted Caramel from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. I feel that Salted Caramel is what Text Me wanted to be as an eyeshadow. It is a lot more rich in pigmentation and a lot easier to blend. Salted Caramel is a little bit darker than Text Me, but it also performs a lot better.  

Wink: The closest dupes I have in my collection for 'Wink' was 'Crystal Spark' from the Tarte Energy Noir palette and 'Divinity' from the Too Faced Bon-Bon's palette. Crystal Spark is a tad more warm but I found it to be the closest match to Wink. I also found Divinity to be relatively similar, but is a touch more yellow. 

S.W.A.K: I found 'S.W.A.K' to be the hardest shade to match, since it is fairly unique in color. However, after looking through all my palettes, the shade 'Sonic' in the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette was the closest I could find to match it. Sonic is a bit more darker than S.W.A.K and has a bit more purple in its under tones. However, when applied they are very similar.

Pros and Cons/ Would I Recommend?: 

Pros:
- Very unique packaging 
- Unique Concept from the brand
- Beautiful on display
- Well thought out products that contain shades that are perfect for Valentine's Day
- Foiled Shadows are gorgeous and are outstanding (Kiss Kiss, S.W.A.K, Wink)
- Large eyeshadow pan sizes
- Unique Liquid Lipstick
- Fast shipping
- Cruelty Free
- Vegan

Cons:
-Expensive
- Small palette
- A lot of useless packaging (If you are not buying for display purchases)
- Limited Edition, so once it's gone you cannot repurchase
- 'Text Me' isn't a strong shadow out of the 4 in the pan.
- Easy to find dupes for 'Text Me' and 'Wink'
- Not able to return


Would I recommend the Feline Fancy Makeup Collection?
I would recommend this collection to those who are Sugarpill lovers, makeup collectors, or those who are looking for a cute makeup item to spoil themselves with. This isn't a palette that I would say people are going to use daily, but it is a very unique and cute idea for Valentine's Day. For the price of this palette you could pick up a Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette or a Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye palette, which will contain more shades besides not having the liquid lipstick. This is definitely a 'spoil yourself' item that is extremely adorable for V-day, but not something that would be used daily. If you have been wanting it, I do think the quality is great on the foiled shadows and Strange Love, and if you are ok with spending $48 on it + shipping, it's definitely worth it even though Text Me isn't a strong shade in the palette.
