Sugar Matte As Hell Lip Crayon Holly Golightly Review, Swatch, FOTD


Sugar Matte As Hell Lip Crayon Holly Golightly Review, Swatch, FOTD

Sugar Cosmetics has gained quite a lot of popularity in a short span of time, especially their lip colors. Their very famous Matte As Hell lip crayons are around for quite a while and very much raved about. Earlier I used to think that 799 bucks is quite a lot of money for such a new brand. But after seeing everyone going gaga over them, I could not help but got one for myself.

Currently I have been hugely crushing over nude/neutral lip shades. So obviously I had to pick the nude shade from the range to start with- Holy Golightly. Also it happens to be the fastest moving shade from the range and remains out of stock everywhere most of the time! Anyways, in this post I will talk about my thoughts on this lipcolor and show how it looks on me!

It comes in a chubby crayon form which needs to be sharpened. It also comes with its own sharpner which does its job pretty well. However I wish it was retractable twist up stick, as sharpening leads to some product wastage.

As the name says, it is true matte. The finish is velvety matte, which does not dry out lips and feels comfortable on my already dry lips. Since it is non-drying, exfoliation of lips is not absolutely necessary. It does not settle on fine lines either.

Now coming to the best part- the shade. It is a warm toned peachy nude, a perfect nude for olive Indian skintone. It might look little too pigmented to be a nude shade on duskier skin. But on me it is a great peachy nude with warm brown tones. It is such kind of shade which you can wear anytime under any circumstances! It beautifully compliments heavy eye makeup. It is such a low maintenance! You don’t have to have full face makeup to wear this shade. It is so easy that you can wear it with bare face and still rock it!

Single swipe on bare skin!

Since it is matte, It has decently good staying power. It is not 100% transferproof though! But I don’t mind reapplying after 4-5 hours of wear or after a meal.

Now, we get such kind of chubby lip crayons from so many other brands- Colorbar being the one. To compare this Sugar Matte as Hell lip crayons with Colorbar Take Me As I Am lip crayons, I would say- Colorbar one is chubbier and bulkier than Sugar. Colorbar has 3.94 gm of product and priced at 900 INR. I am not sure how much product Sugar lip crayon has, but definitely lesser than Colorbar. Colorbar is insanely pigmented, glides like butter and gives satiny matte finish. Sugar crayon is more matte than Colorbar, with fairly good formula and pigmentation.

Likes:
  • The shade! Perfect nude for warm fair to medium skintone.
  • Non-drying and easy to work with formula
  • Flat matte texture which further enhances the beauty of the shade
Dislikes:
