REVIEW: Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Lipstick Crayon in Scarlett O'Hara

ISLM Writer: Nimisha

When half of India is lurching to the heat, I am enjoying my summers with a tall glass of iced tea and my red lips. Ah, seems like I am on a spree of flaunting my reds, where most of the babes are dolling up in the pastel hues.





So red and matte it is for you guys. Sugar Cosmetics came out with Matte as Hell Lip Crayons quite a while back and since I saw that it had not been reviewed yet; how could I miss this golden opportunity. *evil grin*

There are quite some things that I liked about this lip crayon and let me dive straight into them. Lets start with the packaging, it is as simple as it can get. A lovely black jumbo crayon which has the coloured hood at the end; this eases identifying this beauty in the heaps of lipsticks that I hoard.

You can fetch this lip crayon for 799 each, available on nykaa.com, fabbag.com

You can get this from the Sugar Cosmetics website as well and I must tell you I am pretty impressed by the shipping they are partnered with : DHL. :) I got my shipment within 3 days flat and that too, it was easily trackable.

Coming back to our agenda of the day, Scarlett O'Hara is a remarkable classic red shade. In case you feel that you are having a dull face day today, this lippy will make sure that it is purged.

Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick - Scralett O'Hara







Being highly pigmented, it imparts an opaque finish in just one sweep.

The stay power is pretty good; stays put for 4-­5 hours and survives little munching. I did see a bit of transfer as well. Though it didn't survive a full meal (for me) after which it starts fading from the inner lips.

Being matte, prepped lips are mandatory; not that they are extremely drying on the lips. But for dry lipped girlies, you might want some lip balm beneath these mattes.

After a few hours, I did notice for this to start settling into the fine lines, and fading after a full meal of this crayon made it mandatory for touch ups since it does look nasty when half your lips don't wear the colour.
(Disclaimer: this happens with most of the bright colours so I would not really count it as a negative for this crayon explicitly).

Now coming to the only dampening side of this charmer: it is not retractable. You have to sharpen it and as it gets smaller, application from the crayon does become a tad bit difficult. Secondly, there is a lot of product wastage (Yes, it does break my heart there).

Positives:
1) Simple clean design and a beautiful bold colour within.
2) Damn pigmented; applies evenly in just one swipe.
3) Great stay power without extremely little transfer; minimises the need for touch ups to a large extent.
4) Drooling over the formulation; creamy yet matte.

Negatives:
1) Not retractable; hence a lot of product wastage and application difficulty over time.

Verdict: 
Must try if you love mattes or not. The only beauties I will say can steer clear of this are those which have extremely dried and chapped lips.

Overall Rating: 
4.5/5 (This babe is definitely very very good but not something that blow my mind away. Yes, it takes a lot to impress me.)

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
