Sugar Vivid Matte Lipstick – Mad Magenta : Review
The lipstick comes in a rectangular tube with a matte finish and has the brand and shade name printed on it. It houses a flat, slanted tip lipstick bullet inside. The lipstick is neither too creamy nor too dry and feels like a gel-matte formula as opposed to the creamy matte feel of the Sugar Matte as Hell crayons. Its not loaded with silicones so it doesn’t have that slip. Because of that, it might not seem very soft or creamy at first but it doesn’t tug on the lips during application. I actually like this kind of texture because overly creamy lipsticks can deposit excess product on the lips, which this one doesn’t. It gives medium color in single swipe which can be built up to full coverage in another swipe. The finish is matte but not dry so doesn’t emphasize lip lines and feels very comfortable to wear. It has a little sheen when freshly applied but settles to a true matte. It feels mildly moisturising and doesn’t cling to any dry bits which is always a great quality in a matte lipstick!
The wear time of these lipsticks is great. Mad Magenta, which is a vibrant fuchsia shade, wears about 6 hours on me after which it begins to fade but leaves a stain behind. It stays comfortable throughout its wear and doesn’t settle into lip lines. The shade has the right level of brightness and it doesn’t look clownish on Indian complexions. If you’re looking to try a vibrant fuchsia lip color, this is a great pick!
Overall, its a fantastic lipstick and I love the long-wearing & light-weight gel matte formula. The range has only 4 shades at the moment and I really hope they expand the range because the formulation and price point is great.
Rating : 4.5/5
