Oh Honey! Trixie Mattel & SugarPill Are At It Again!
I was recently working on a declutter, and while I was going through the makeup that I still have at home (most of my makeup has made its way to my office - and the rest will be there soon!) and I came across the Oh Honey palette from Trixie Mattel and SugarPill. I love that palette! I pulled it out, planning to do some sort of video about it at some point; maybe a best of collabs video or something like that.
Two days later, I was scrolling IG when I saw that they had announced an Oh Honey 2 collection. Now I'm not saying that I'm a makeup psychic. But I'm also not...not saying it.
The palette is described as the slutty older sister of the first palette, and I think that's strangely appropriate. I loved the soft, neutral lean of the first palette, but this one definitely has some spice to it. The palette comes packaged with a lip gloss, and the collection also includes a lip duo with a liquid lipstick and a lip gloss.
For the eye swatches, I did them over the Ulta Matte eye primer with a finger swatch on the left and a brush swatch on the right. For the blush, it was a finger swatch on the left to show the product built up and a more diffused brush swatch on the right, over bare skin. The lip products were all applied directly from the product onto bare skin. The top photo is under my studio lighting with no flash, and the bottom photo is under the same lighting with a flash.
Bumble is a really pretty peachy pink matte. It's a little bit muted compared to what you see in the pan, but it's a nice shade. Sting is a deeper berry matte, nice pigmentation and blends out fairly well. Drip Drip is a purple shimmer. This is a nice shadow, but it's a pretty basic satin shimmer. SugarPill has always been known for great quality, but I feel like they aren't necessarily keeping up with where a lot of brands are going in terms of more interesting, impactful shimmer. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just kind of plain.
Hive Mind is an interesting marigold orange yellow. It got a little bit caught up on the primer, so use this over a tacky base with caution, but the color is really pretty and has a nice mustard tone to it. Queen! is a pretty basic gold metallic shimmer, a little boring but has nice shine to it. Buzz Off is a gorgeous black matte with gold glitter suspended in it. I usually hate this shade, and I would suggest glitter glue if you don't want full bukkake glitter, but I do have to say that SugarPill does a better version of this kind of shadow than most. Most mattes like this, the glitter blends away almost immediately. This one has a good saturation to the glitter, and while glitter glue will give you the best result, it doesn't immediately disappear without it.
Sugar Coat is the gloss that comes with the palette. It's mostly sheer with a golden reflect and glitter, and some pinkish glitters mixed in for sort of an almost duochrome effect. It sheers out quite a bit so you don't get much of the color on the lips, but it does have a nice amount of glitter and shine, and it's not sticky to wear.
I forget how much I love the liquid lipsticks from SugarPill! Sweet Tooth is a bright peachy pink, and it has the gorgeous creamsicle scent that all SugarPill lip products have. This is a great complement to the palette, but it's reserved enough to go with a lot of everyday and neutral looks if you fee like dressing it down. Honey Dip is a golden shimmer gloss, even more sheer than the other one, but equally as comfortable.
I'm still out here rooting for SugarPill! I know that they don't have the same place in the indie makeup world that they did when I was first getting into beauty YouTube, but I think they have a fun approach to color and they make some pretty consistent, high quality products. Trixie has, of course, launched her own brand, but I've been loving the collabs between the two brands and I'm glad that they are working together to bring us some fun and frisky makeup! This is a small collection, but it's good, and I think it's worth checking out while you can. There is nothing here that is revolutionizing makeup, but it's a fun product from one of those OG brands.
