Pink Sugar: Sugar tint lip and cheek tint

I am such a lipstick junkie but I hate when it transfers. Especially for my line of work, I drink lots of water to hydrate (vocal hygiene is important!) and this results to a tumbler with lipstick stains. This is why I am a huge fan of liquid lipsticks because of their staying power and minimal to no transferring.

I am always on the lookout for the best liquid lipstick and I’ve been hearing about this product for quite some time now. I bought mine last sunday at Watsons for 399  each.

I tried to research about this product and the only description that I can find is from beautymnl:

FAST FACTS: Long-lasting, lightweight formula; delivers a lovely matte finish; moisturizes, nourishes, and softens lips during use; formulated with coconut oil, aloe vera, and vitamins A, C, and E; fades to a pretty stain over time for a natural flush of color

Now unto my thoughts.

Price: I think it’s quite reasonable as other liquid lipsticks from the drugstore costs about the same or more. 

Packaging: it comes in separate boxes which has different font colors for each shade. I can say that they tried to put an effort on their products.

The product itself comes in a plastic tube with a doe foot applicator. The tube is also transparent which is good since you can see the product inside

Shade names are printed on stickers and are placed on the bottom of the tube.

Application: it’s fairly easy to apply on the lips due to it’s mousse-y consistency. I love that the applicator can be precise which helps you stay inside the lines and not look like a toddler who applied lipstick for the first time. It also took one swipe to get full coverage and it’s not streaky at all for pillow talk. I had a little struggle with the shade posh purple and had to apply 2-3 coats to have full coverage and for it not to be streaky on my lower lip.

Below is a lip swatch under artificial light (shade: pillow talk)

Shade: posh purple

(Excuse the poor application and bare face, this was taken on a different day when I can’t put makeup on the rest of my face)

Scent: I am pleasantly surprised as this is my first liquid lipstick that smells like grapes! The scent doesnt last long though and immediately goes away once it sets.

Lasting power: I can say it works as should most liquid lipsticks do. Unless you eat anything oily, it stays put and doesn’t fade even when I drink water. 

Feel: one thing I love about this product is that it’s not drying at all! I usually alternate using lip products (glossy then matte) because my lips can be very dry at the end of the day. This product really feels comfortable and can be used everyday!

Overall: I am a fan of this product. I have been wearing it for a week straight and my lips are not begging for hydration. I will definitely get more of the lighter shades. Will probably pass on the darker once.

xx, A
