Hello everyone, how are you? I hope you’re having a fabulous Sunday. Today, I will be doing a first impression review about Pink Sugar’s Creamy Matte lipstick. For more information about their products, please visit the Pink Sugar Cosmetics Facebook page.
The current shade that I have is called Sangria. Sangria is a wine colored lipstick, or a burgundy shade. I got this when I got a loot bag from Ms Martha Sta. Barbara’s Meet and Greet.
First of all, tbe box that is a beautiful burgundy color bearing the Pink Sugar logo. The lipstick bullet is encased inside a plastic tube. The bottom part is transparent. You can see the actual color of the lipstick.
INGREDIENTS LIST OF THE PINK SUGAR CREAMY MATTE LIPSTICK
Here is a swatch of Pink Sugar’s Creamy Matte lipstick Sangria on the top of my hand. The product is pigmented. Yet, I have to see how this looks when I apply this on my lips. I am having problematic lips lately.
The product easily glides on the lips when I used it. There’s no tugging sensation, like your lips are becoming one with your lipstick. When I used this, my lips were flaky at that time, so I had some preparations to do before putting it on.
I scrubbed my lips with Lush’s Mint Julips Peppermint and Chocolate Sugar Tint Scrub. If you don’t have sugar scrub, plain old sugar will do. Then I moisturized my lips with a small amount of Celeteque Dermoscience Suncare Facial Moisturizer. I waited for the lotion to dry out so that when I wear the lipstick, my lips aren’t going to be wet.
Here is how I look after applying Pink Sugar Creamy Matte Sangria afterwards.
When I applied the lipstick, I loved how it easily glides over my lips. However , I noticed that my lips are patchy. I had to reapply a second layer in order to achieve an even look. The lipstick is not smudge-proof. The product transfers to the tissue paper when you press your lips together. I wish this stays longer on the lips because I love the color. For now I’ll be using this. In the future, I will try their Sugar Tint Lip Cheek and Tint Vampy Vixen in Deep Reddish Burgundy. I am currently using the Honey Bunny Shade, which is nude in color.
Yes, Pink Sugar is cruelty-free and they don’t test on animals. You may check out the Pink Sugar Cosmetics website for more information.
1)If you’re having dry or flaky lips, the best way to apply this is by using downward strokes. Putting on the product in a sideways motion emphasizes flakiness even more. If you have thin lips, I suggest for you to use a lip brush when applying the product.
2Exfoliate flaky lips.
3) Moisturize your lips, especially if you have dry or flaky lips. Generally, I don’t suggest using lip balm when moisturizing especially if it has the consistency of thick petroleum jelly, or if the lip balm is sticky. However, if you have to put on lip balm, make sure that it’s lightweight. I don’t like it when my lips feels heavy and sticky on lips. No lip balm? You can use a lightweight moisturizer to give your lips a boost.
Just a note, I am doing a personal review on this. This blog post is not sponsored. While it is a fact that I got the product for free at an event, I am giving my own feedback about this product.
Thank you all, and have a great day!
