Sugarpill Elektro Cute Review & Swatches

Sugarpill just released this new Elektro Cute range of five Sparkling Neon Pigments and I am absolutely in love. These neon highlighter shades and not just bright they're also packed full of glitter too!

        Sparkage         Love Buzz         Supercharged        Hi-Viz       Hellatronic

I really love all the shades, some are slightly lacking in pigmentation when applied dry like Supercharged and Hi-Viz but nothing major. One thing I really love about these is how blendable they are, they never go patchy unlike some other neon pigments I have tried. But the main issue with these is getting the glitter to stay as it has a tendency to fade when applied dry. The best way I have found is using a gel based mixing medium like MAC Mixing Medium Eyeliner or Illamasqua Sealing Gel. The gel based as opposed to a water based mixing medium holds the glitter and matte pigment intact without flaking like a water based would.
