Sugarpill Capsule Collection C2
Hey friends, today I’m finally bringing you my Sugarpill Capsule Collection C2 Review, Swatches, and Demo for you. I test out every color in the palette on my eyes so you can see how they perform. This eye and cheek palette is 100% vegan. Sugarpill states that this palette has 10 exclusive new shades in a mix of warm and cool neutrals infused with the boost of color Sugarpill is known for. Sugarpill is a smashingly successful indie makeup brand that is cruelty free with many vegan options. They’re also Leaping Bunny certified. They basically check all my boxes for a great brand: indie, cruelty free, vegan, bright colorful fun products, and they’re not problematic.

Sugarpill Capsule Collection C2 Review
While the video above has my full review, I did want to include a little written review as well. The Capsule Collection C2 Palette is a winning palette from Sugarpll. The C2 eyeshadows are all solid. Unlike the Sugarpill Capsule Collection C1 palette, which had 3 dud eyeshadows by my standards, the C2 has no duds. Every color is a winner.
I love the Sugarpill Retrograde blush because of the pearlescent glowy finish. It looks amazing on my cheeks.
Shades like Side Eye and Karma are perfect transition colors for my skin tone. Moon Shine is a surprisingly versatile neutral that can work as an accent at the outer V, to add definition at the lower lid, or just a beautiful shimmery lid shade. Elevate is a gorgeous eye brightening peachy champagne.
Both Double Shot and Young Blood can serve as liner colors or as the deepest accent color in a look. Insomniac and Skyrise are both beautiful statement lid colors. Use one or both with Metro to create a tropical parrot inspired look.
One of my friends suggested trying the biggest pan size shades, which would be Retrograde, Elevate, Moon Shine, Insomniac and Skyrise, as one and done washes of color on the lid to see how I like them. I may give that a try soon!
For being a neutrals palette you get a surprising amount of color. As I mentioned you can easily create a tropical inspired look with Insomniac, Skyrise and Metro. You can create a sexy smoky red look with Karma, Young Blood, Double Shot and Side Eye though you may have to reach for a matte black eyeshadow to complete the look. You can create an Autumn leaves inspired look with Metro, Karma, Double Shot and Young Blood.
The reason I love this particular neutral palette combination so much is that peachy hues like Karma, Retrograde and Elevate, along with neutrals like Moon Shine, Side Eye and Young Blood, look fantastic on my fair skin tone. Usually neutral palettes lean heavy into browns, which don’t work well for me. I do better with neutral tones in peaches, pinks, taupes and greys.
My only complaint about both the Sugarpill Capsule Collection C2 and Capsule Collection C1 are that I wish the pan sizes for all products were uniform. As someone who has hooded eyes, I use mattes at least as much (if not more frequently) as shimmer shades. Unfortunately both of these palettes make the shimmer shades huge, which is great, but the mattes are super tiny, which sucks. I’d be happier if they were all the same size or if the matte / satins were slightly larger.
If you love Sugarpill and you love neutrals, you need to buy this palette. If you love Sugarpill and you don’t own these staple neutrals, you may want this palette. If you love Sugarpill but you never wear neutrals, you may not like this palette. As someone who rarely wears neutrals and loves Sugarpill, I love this palette and have no regrets over purchasing it. If you’ve never tried Sugarpill and you’re dipping your toes outside of neutrals, this would be a great introduction palette to Sugarpill.

The shade “Elevate” is so pretty, I’m going to check on Temptalia’s website to see if I have a dupe, lol

All of these looks are perfect! The mix of colors are so fun and you make them look so useable!
I think its an interesting twist on a neutral palette

I only feel like the different pan sizes are convenient if they make the most used shades bigger (setting shades, transition shades, etc)!
Your swatches are so perfect! I especially love how those shimmers sparkle in the sun.

I love the shades in this palette but I am.not a fan of the packaging. I feel like the clear spaces will get dusty too easily.
I am always looking for shades like Elevate. I love the eye you did with that color.
Rachel Runyan says
I love this palette so freaking much! I think it’s a really unique and interesting take on a neutral palette. I wish more brands would think outside the neutral box like that. The blush definitely needs to be a permanent single when they come out with a blush line.
