Hey beauty lovers! It’s been a little while since I did a full review on one specific product/brand, so today I will be discussing something I have fallen in love with recently! I am a member of ipsy, which is a beauty subscription service, so I am frequently receiving and trying new beauty products. The items I am sharing in today’s post were sent to me in my ipsy glam bags, and they are considered deluxe sample sizes.
About the Brand:
SUGAR Cosmetics is a brand that stands for and believes in empowerment. They sell beauty and skincare products, and they are 100% cruelty free and not tested on animals. Their products have safe ingredients and they are dermatologically tested. They support beauty in many different forms. According to SUGAR Cosmetics, “Our aim is to celebrate every aspect of you, no matter what your style is.”
I did not own or try very many lip crayons previously, however these have become favorites of mine for so many reasons. Let’s dive into the review!
Before trying these lip crayons, I had only ever tried one other product from this brand. I own three different shades of the Matte as Hell Lip Crayons: Scarlett O’Hara, Stephanie Plum, and Honey Rider. After exploring this product on the SUGAR Cosmetics website, I realized that each shade is named after a fictional character. I really like it when beauty brands stick to a theme when naming certain products (ex: colors in an eyeshadow palette or a new line of lipglosses). For those of you who have a favorite fictional character, you can purchase a shade named after them! These lip crayons are available in 36 shades, which I think is amazing. It gives customers a chance to explore what colors they like, and there truly is something for everyone!
I was very impressed by the color pay-off with these lip crayons! Just a couple swipes and you will see gorgeous pigmentation and a full coverage look for your lips! Each shade is vibrant and beautiful.
I absolutely love the bright matte red of the shade Scarlett O’Hara; it is versatile and can be worn for a day in the office, a night out with friends, or even for a simple and relaxed day when you need a boost of confidence. It is the perfect red; not too deep and dark, but not super bright either. Stephanie Plum is a great shade for a bold and striking makeup look. It is a gorgeous dark purple, and it is perfect for those days when you want to make a statement with your lips! This color would look very nice for fall and winter. Honey Rider is a pretty peachy shade that is perfect for spring and summer! The color is chic and bold, and it looks stunning with a simple eye look! Out of these three shades, I think that Scarlett O’Hara is my favorite! You can never go wrong with a red lip, and this is the one that I will always reach for when I want to achieve that classic look.
Sometimes, when people see that a lip product is labeled as “matte”, they may equate that to being drying. Well, I can safely say that all of these crayons are definitely matte, however they feel hydrating on the lips. They are creamy and due to the fact that they are lip crayons, they are much easier to use when filling in your lips, leaving no mistakes behind. I always recommend applying some chapstick before using any lip color. Even though this is not a necessary step, I still like to include it every time I do my makeup (and even more so when using a matte lip product).
SUGAR Cosmetics claims that these crayons are meant to be long-lasting, so you won’t need to constantly reapply! I do think that a few touch ups throughout the day will be needed because this will transfer a bit, however it won’t be a hassle. Also, it is likely to leave a slight stain behind, however it is very easy to remove with a makeup wipe, or you can grab your go-to shade out of your purse and easily reapply!
Overall, I would absolutely recommend the SUGAR Cosmetics Crayon Lipsticks. They live up their name, and they are the perfect matte lip colors! These crayons are super easy to wear, they are available in a variety of gorgeous colors, and you can throw them in your bag and reapply at any time with ease! If you are interested in purchasing this product, check out the SUGAR Cosmetics website where they sell for $20.99. (At the moment, many of the shades are sold out, however they are sold on Amazon as well. Most shades are available here.)
