Sugarpill... taking over the world! Review w/PICS

I recently placed my 1st order with Amy at Sugarpill after seeing a few great reviews about the brand. First off, there is soooooo much detail and thought put into the brand, imaging and product quality!!! The box itself was stamped in the lower lefthand corner with the sugarpill cat logo (so cute). The actual products were carefully wrapped in bright pink tissue paper, which follows the basic packaging color scheme. Both the actual product AND the box it comes in are decorated gorgeously. I picked up a 4 shadow palette (mirrored) as well as 2 single shadows... and let me tell you... I was PLEASANTLY surprised to see how HUGE the shadows are. They are bigger than a MAC shadow... about the size of a MUFE single shadow (if not a tad larger). Color intensity is great! What you see is what you get. The eyeshadows apply very even and creamy, not at all chalky and would blend well. A neat feature of the palette is the product names and colors are printed on the back so there is no confusion AND it has a magnetic closure so you don't have to worry about it popping open or damaging the shadows trying to get it open. The clasp on the single shadows closes tightly and was very easy to open and close, and has a cute little "tattoo" detail on the clear flip lid. 

Overall, I LOVE Sugarpill!!!! Prices are great, cheaper than MAC and MUFE ($12 for shadows, $34 for palettes), yet you get more product... and the color payoff is AMAZING, as you can see in the pictures below (swatches were done dry WITHOUT primer or base). Have you tried Sugarpill yet? Tell me what you think about their products.
