Put MAC's 'Carbon' to SHAME! - @sugarpillmakeup Sugarpill Cosmetics 'Bulletproof' Eyeshadow Review.

For a while, I've been looking for a HG Matte Black Eyeshadow after owning too many shimmery blacks and trying out many matte blacks that just weren't dark enough for me, but my search has ended! My mother and I would waltz in and out of the MAC store pondering on whether it was worth it to buy Carbon (which is very sheer for an intense looking eyeshadow) or find something better..

Typing "Bulletproof Eyeshadow Review" into google I found this:
"What company has the blackest matte eyeshadow? I'm looking for one that doesn't go green, but a carbon black. Any suggestions..." 
"Sugarpill's Bulletproof eyeshadow puts MAC's Carbon to SHAME!"

Not only do I think this is one of the best cosmetic purchases I have made so far, it is also the best online purchase for the best customer service!

Delivery: 
I placed an order on the 12th and it arrived on the 18th! (shipping was $6.00USD to NZ)
I was so happy to receive my Sugarpill box, and was even happier when I opened it - one word - PINK! Everything was wrapped securely in a lot of pink tissue and came with the Eyeshadow, a Promotional Card, A sample of Goldilux, and an invoice (With a written thankyou!).

Aesthetics:
If there's one thing I love, its great packaging, I actually hoard most packaging because it looks good, I even have tags from clothing I don't even wear anymore and as far as cosmetic packaging goes from delivery box to product packaging, Sugarpill takes the cake. Everything is intricately detailed with CORRECT spelling, clear labelling and so on. Even the 'Goldilux' sample packaging is highly detailed on sturdy card and even a pink staple (I found this minor detail so cute!). The case Bulletproof came in was bigger than an average pan and perfectly sized to fit in my almost full makeup bag.

Function/Use:
[EDIT 13/10/12: I GOT A BIT TRIGGER HAPPY WITH LAYING IT DOWN OVER GROUNDWORK, IF I HAVE TIME I'LL RESWATCH, BUT IT REALLY IS AMAZING!

I wish I had Carbon to swatch and compare, but in a way I'm happy I didn't waste $32 (yes, 32) on buying something I would probably never use again. 

This stuff is perfect. A few swipes of Bulletproof and you have a beautiful vivid BLACK. I really cant say more, it speaks for itself. I'm happy I invested in this product, it is seriously so velvety and works perfectly, I am definitely going to try more colours.

Quality: 5/5

Buy Again? I'm already picking out some colours.
