“A spoonful of SUGAR helps the medicine go down”
I kept humming this song yesterday while I was checking out the finish and stay of the Sugar Mary Poppins Lipstick crayon for reviewing it on blog today. I adore Julie Andrews singing this sugared song in movie Mary Poppins. I sing it for girls sometime as they love this song plus “Chim chimney” from the movie. On to post

Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Mary Poppins Review,Swatch,Photos
I am going to share my review this gorgeous shade -Mary Poppins from Sugar Cosmetics Lipstick Crayon collection. I have no idea why they chose name “Mary Poppins” for this shade as I perused the entire movie looking for the main lead sporting this bright pink shade,but Julie Andrews rather draped her lips in orange /red color for the entire movie. Whatsoever,I love Mary Poppins !! Keep reading here for more on this Mary Poppins
Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Mary Poppins 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.
Mary Poppins is hot pink lip shade with cooler purple undertones/ bright vivid fuchsia that fits the category of bold and beautiful lipsticks.This shade can look slight neon in flash photographs. It will look on all skin tones. It is bright and happy shade that exists to be noticed. I love to wear these kind of shades with single eyeshadow-mostly champagnes with eyeliner. It is quite fun and statement shade for spring/summer.
Sugar Cosmetics Mary Poppins 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 .Just like Poison Ivy, Mary Poppins goes creamy on dry lips but I recommend exfoliating lips before wearing this matte lipstick for uniform finish. Formula is tasteless and odorless.
It gives intense color pay off in single swipe. I get complete opacity in single swipes on my slightly pigmented lips.Multiple swipes intensify the color and plump up lips without looking cakey. Matte as Hell crayon lipstick-Mary Poppins gives creamy to matte finish. On my lips , it gives relatively matte finish with hint of creamy shine( shine is lesser than Poison Ivy). It is definitely not a Retro Matte neither in texture nor in finish. It does not bleed a s such but I saw little smudge on my chin/cheeks. It doesn’t accumulate in fine lip lines either initially but tends to accentuate appearance of lip lines eventually.
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.It does transfer on spoons and cups even after an hour of application so the formula never sets into complete matte finish. It looks patchy on lips after few hours of wear on fading.It disappears leaving lips stained which comes out easily with makeup remover. ( current favorite Avene Eau Thermale Micellar Lotion)
VANILLA RATINGS 8.5/10
I heart vivid bright pink/fuchsia lipsticks!! SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Mary Poppins 02 is beautiful straight-up bold,bright pin shade. It does not look super matte neon and will suit all skin tones. Formula applies smooth and does not dry out lips.Creamy Matte Finish does not accentuate appearance of dry chapped areas on lips.Its wax-based formulation does not contain mineral oil, parabens, paraffin, and animal derived ingredients. Blotting the first layer & reapplying again gives fuller and long lasting finish. However it is not hardcore matte!! Recommended for Bold Pink lovers. I find it ideal shade for spring and summer.
Which is your favorite lip shade for this spring/summer 2016?
