Autumn Daze: Sugarpill's Cold Chemistry Palette

Hello, sweet little sparkles! I have another change of pace from perfume posting today. For the longest time ever, I've been stalking the Sugarpill website and Facebook to see when the Cold Chemistry palette was going to be released. It was very hard to find an official release for this palette, but it finally came out (seemingly out of the blue)! While this palette is not part of any fall/autumn/Halloween collection, I think these colors are absolutely perfect for fall; so I decided it would be okay for this post to be part of "Autumn Daze!"

The Packaging

The packaging on this palette is different from the rest of the Sugarpill palettes. The main difference is that the Cold Chemistry palette contains four shadows horizontally. There is still a mirror in this palette, but as you can see below, it's an asymmetrical mirror to go with the theme. It's not very functional, but it's cute of course!

The Colors

There are four colors in this palette that compliment each other very well. They're very blendable, don't have much fallout, and are incredibly pigmented. Here are the color descriptions from Sugarpill's website:

Soot &Stars: Metallic gunmetal with prismatic sparkle

Diamond Eyes: Satin white with crystalline sheen. An excellent brow highlight color!

Elemental Chaos: Deep grape shimmer with iridescent blue undertones.

Subterranean: Lustrous peacock green with navy blue undertones.

The Swatches

And the most important part of this post- the swatches! These shadows were swatched on my arm over urban Decay Primer Potion.

Okay, so I do have an announcement before I go! After five years of agony and part time jobs with no hours, I finally got a job offer on Friday! It's still part time, but I'm going to be working five days a week, which I am very thankful for. I'll still be posting here as much as possible with autumny things!  I hope you guys have a wonderful day/night. 

Above- A rainbow from the walk my boyfriend and I went on the other day :) There's actually two rainbows, but one is hard to see. 


  1. I like the Subterranean shade but the rest is a little too cool toned for my tastes. I guess around fall I'm more in an earth tone mood. Would love to see a look you do with it though!
    Congrats on the job, that's awesome! And what a gorgeous rainbow! Hope it's getting a little cooler over there for you :)

  2. That's very understandable, my dear! I wore Soot & Ashes as a smokey eye with Diamond eyes as a highlight color on my boyfriends birthday. I'm not really good at makeup but I will try to share if I actually do succeed at an ok look with this palette :D
    Thank you for your kind words! There was actually a double rainbow all the way across the sky a few days ago- it was SO incredible! We've been getting a lot of rain and rainbows lately- it's so uncommon here that I feel like I've won the weather lottery :) How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

  3. Grogeous colors in that palette! I'm really bad at anything to do with makeup, eye shadows especially, I just can't ever get it to look good, but I like just looking at the colors!! :D

    1. Glad you like them, Nadja, my dear! Yeah I'm the worst at eyeshadow, I never seem to get it right... But I am a sucker for pretty colors, so I just try my best and attempt to make it look better than a 4-year-old could do!

  4. I'm glad you have found a job now! That is probably a huge weight off your shoulders.

    I just bought this palette as well. The direct sunlight swatches look awesome!

    1. Thank you sweetheart! Yeah I definitely feel tons and tons better now. I was so stressed and worried every day and it's a shitty way to live an already short life.

      That's awesome that you bought this palette too! Thank you so much for the compliment- I think you will love these colors!!! I know you have quite the Sugarpill collection already, too! <3
