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