Sugarpill Edward Scissorhands Palette

Sugarpill Edward Scissorhands Palette Review and Swatches

Today I’m going to share my thoughts on the Sugarpill Edward Scissorhands Palette with you. This palette arrived when I was in Indiana, so I didn’t get to play with it until I got back. I was thrilled to see an Edward Scissorhands themed palette from Sugarpill because I love that movie. I was also very happy to see Sugarpill create a full vegan palette, since people have been clamoring for one for years.

The left side of my swatch is on Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer. The right side is on bare skin. You should be able to see where the tape was down the middle of my swatch because shadow never wants to adhere there.

Sugarpill The Inventor swatch

Sugarpill The Inventor swatch
The Inventor
creamy metallic gunmetal
This is an absolutely stunning gunmetal grey. I love it. It does remind me a bit of Soot & Stars, though they’re not an exact match.

Sugarpill Home Sweet Home swatch

Home Sweet Home
matte powder blue
This color was a PITA for me. It was chalky, powdery and didn’t apply evenly on bare skin or primer. Definitely disappointed me. I feel like this is the worst shade in the entire palette.

Sugarpill Ice Angel swatch

Sugarpill Ice Angel swatch

Ice Angel
silvery white with iridescent blue sheen
I love this color! It’s a light silvery white base with iridescent blue sheen. It’s a cruelty free and vegan dupe for an old favorite of mine, MAC Vellum (Nyx Opal is close, too).  It’s an awesome highlighter. Pop it at the inner corner or under the brow and it’s gorgeous. I also like it for layering on top of other colors.

Sugarpill Heart-Shaped Cookie swatch

Heart-Shaped Cookie
soft matte beige – the perfect blending shade
Semi-sheer light beige with peach tones. On bare skin it applied evenly. Sugarpill says to use this to blend out the edges of other shades. I think this shade is nice.

Sugarpill Suburbia swatch

flirty matte coral, doubles as a blush shade!
Coral orange matte. It applied slightly patchy to my bare skin. It does build up and blend out nicely if you like it as a blush. I think this shade is nice. It’s the brightest color in the palette and I think it would be very pretty with Flamepoint or Love+.

Sugarpill Castle on the Hill swatch

Castle on the Hill
deep stone brown – the color of a castle’s deteriorating exterior.
Deep cool brown matte.  Very pigmented and had a nice texture. Easy to blend. I think this shade is a nice brown.

Sugarpill did an amazing job with the packaging. This palette does have gorgeous packaging. I love the design and layout of the colors. It’s perfection. I really like that it has the names of the colors printed below them. The mirror is nice.

The amount of product you get in this palette about the same as you get in the typical 4 pan Sugarpill palette. The 4 palettes contain .12 oz of each eyeshadow / .48 oz total. This 6 palette contains .08 oz of each eyeshadow / .48 oz. I feel like the Sugarpill eyeshadows are always an excellent value for the price.

I’m going to be honest with you. Home Sweet Home is just awful to me and I feel like it’s a dud. But it’s the only dud in the whole palette. I absolutely love Ice Angel and The Inventor. I think they’re lovely shades. I really like Castle on the Hill, as it’s a very nice cool-toned deep brown. Suburbia is pretty. Heart-Shaped Cookie is nice.

I do really like that 4 of the 6 shades are cool, with only Suburbia and Heart-Shaped Cookie being warm toned. I think it’s nice to see a mostly cool-toned palette. This is a very different palette from Sugarpill’s previous ones. I think you’ll love this palette if you’re a fan of mostly neutral palettes, if you like cool toned palettes, if you love Edward Scissorhands, and if you’re willing to overlook Home Sweet Home. If not, you should skip it.

Sugarpill will be getting their second and final shipment of this Limited Edition palette soon. You can sign up at their website to be notified when it comes in.

What do you think of the Sugarpill Edward Scissorhands Palette?


  1. For me this is an okay palette. I do really like the Ice Angel shade. So pretty!

  2. I really love this palette. I love shades like Suburbia because they tend to be really flattering go-to crease shades for me with a peach on the lid (my “neutral” look), and I really think suburbia is well done, having the right amount of pigmentation and also blending out beautifully (I haven’t tried it without primer). I think Ice Angel is especially amazing and ethereal as a highlight and very unexpected when paired with warmer eyeshadows in a look. I don’t think I have an exact dupe for Castle on the Hill, which is rare for a brown in any palette, and I love that its cooler toned. Heart Shaped Cookie is almost my exact skin tone and make a great base shade for me plus such a cute name! I am really happy to see Sugarpill release a palette like this and I hope it means we will be seeing a wider variety of eyeshadow shades from them in the future to make their offerings more dynamic. I really think this is an amazing palette, bearing in mind I may be slightly biased as I love Sugarpill so much, but way to go everyone who worked on this. I’m super glad I added it to my collection.

  3. I bought this with the nail polish and when I got it I wasn’t sure if the colors were right for me or if I could do anything with them but now that I’ve seen your review there could be possibilities. Thanks for the insight! 🙂

  4. I love the packaging, but had I not seen it swatched I would have never been interested the shades.

  5. The look you created is gorgeous! I love the swatches too, but what a shame about the formula of the powdery blue – it’s definitely the star of the palette in the pan!

  6. I was wanting this, but my there was an issue with my paycheck and I received it too late. By then this was sold out. I love the warm-cool dichotomy going on. What a shame the light blue shade was a dud, considering there are only six in the palette. At least primer seems to help it.

    1. I still thought it was pretty terrible on primer because it is so patchy on primer! It’s like, nothing I seem to do with that shade makes it work for me.

      1. It looks patchy in both versions to me. It might be one of those shades that needs to be patted on over a glitter glue primer, and not blended. Or just used as a highlight.

  7. Gorgeous look you created with this cute palette! I love the idea of “1950s housewife chic”!

  8. Loved the movie, and love the look of the palette. What a total bummer that Home Sweet Home was such a disappointment because the color is awesome!
