Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Holly Golightly Review,Swatch,Photos
I am going to share my experience with this gorgeous subtle peach lipstick I discovered this year from Sugar Cosmetics. Sugar Cosmetics is a new cosmetics brand in India.
Price:799 INR for 2.8gm
I have shared posts on Eyes Spy ,Lips Don’t Lie Box and Sugar Eye Told You So Waterproof Black Liquid Eyeliner already on blog.Eyes Spy ,Lips Don’t Lie Box had four lipstick crayons along with a crayon sharpener,kajal and liquid eye-liner.Earlier I was planning to do a jump post for all the four lipstick shades together. But with same makeup on eyes and face,I thought swatching lip crayons on go will not be justice to the four distinct color family shades introduced by brand. So I finally resorted to do individual posts for each lip shade with FOTD build around the lip color.
With that let’s see “How Holly Golightly got to do something about the way I look?I mean a girl just can’t go to Sing Sing with a green face.“( Famous dialogue from Truman Capote’s 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany where my favorite Audrey Hepburn played the character Holly Golightly)
Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Holly Golightly Review
AS CLAIMED BY BRAND
If excellent coverage and high colour pay-off is what gets you going, you will absolutely love our new SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick that is available in 4 gorgeous shades to suit your taste & your ever-changing mood! Super long-lasting and highly pigmented so you don’t have to worry about constant re-application, this must-have crayon lipstick has a soft texture with a silky matte finish.
Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipsticks as indicated by name comes in “To be sharpened” crayon packaging. I adore the black matte finish of the lipstick crayon which offers the “blackboard” background to white labelling in a quite distinct way. Dipped end of the crayon is color coded , this makes the packaging quite handy if you have all the four shades.
The Crayon lipstick is not retractable and needs to be sharpened. Though sharpening gives a good precision tip but some amount of the product is always wasted while sharpening. I am happy however on receiving free sharpener designed specifically for these lipstick crayons. The product wastage is lot less with synergetic sharpener as when compared to regular stationary sharpener. Packaging is travel safe and easy to use.
Holly Golightly is lightest of all the four shades launched in Matte As Hell Crayon range. In tube it looks deeper peach but on my lips it shows up as n*ude shade with peach undertones. The shade will suit fair to medium skin complexions . It is my regular day wear shade since past few weeks. This is one shade I have used most from the complete set so far. I usually love pairing it up Maybelline Fit Me medium coral blush with kohl’ed/dramatic eyes these days.
Holly Golightly has soft creamy texture therefore it glides on the lips without a drag or tug which is something I really admire in claimed matte finish lipsticks.I have been wearing these Matte Crayons whole February/March when the air still had that morning/evening drying chill. I found the formula non drying on my lips considering the weather as such but balm’ing up my lips overnight (using Vichy Aqualia Thermal Soothing Lip Balm these days) added the comfort of wearing this formula next day.Formula is tasteless and odorless.
It gives average color pay off in single swipe. I get complete opacity in 4-5 swipes on my slightly pigmented lips.Multiple swipes does not intensify the color but manage to give fuller and uniform cover to lips. Matte as Hell crayon Lipstick gives creamy to powdery matte finish. I can see lipstick’s powdered crumbles accumulating in fine lip lines thereby accentuating their appearance. I was slightly disappointed as prominent lip lines can make you look much older for your age.
So I recommend exfoliating your lips/overnight lip balm/prepping up with MAC Prep+Prime before you put on this formula as this improves the finish of the lipstick considerably.
Otherwise Lipstick wears comfortable on lips without any stickiness or dryness given to the creamy soft formula.It has decent staying power. On me, it stays on for good 4-5 hours with light snacks/ lime juice.It does transfer on spoons and cups even after an hour of application . It fades from within outwards and a little touch up manages to put the whole finish back in place.
VANILLA RATINGS 8/10
SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Holly Golightly 04 has turned out relatively neutral peach shade on my lips (when compared to swatch/in tube) which I find will suit fair to medium skin complexions. Medium – Olive skin beauties can find this shade flattering to pair with dramatic eyes.. Formula applies smooth and does not dry out lips.Matte Powdery Finish can be slightly unforgiving on dry chapped lips or aging lips.Its wax-based formulation does not contain mineral oil, parabens, paraffin, and animal derived ingredients. I recommend prepping up your lips before you apply the crayon lipstick. Blot & reapply for fuller and long lasting finish.
Holly Golightly looks beautiful on my NC 41 skin tones with dash of kohl on eyes. But I can’t help comparing Sugar Lip Crayons with Faces Ultime Mat Lip Crayons. I have been using Peach Me from Faces Canada a lot since past few weeks. I found the texture, finish , color pay-off of Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayons notch better than Sugar Cosmetics. The texture of Sugar lip crayons feels waxy when compared to the velvet soft formula of Faces Canada.
Considering they are retailing at same price, I will like to share my opinion with readers at Trystwithvanillagirl i.e Faces Ultime Pro Mat Lip Crayons are better bang for your buck when compared with Sugar Cosmetics Lip Crayons.However,I have given ratings to the product without considering this comparison with Faces Lip Crayon.
