Sugar Cosmetics has recently launched their Vivid lipsticks in 4 beautiful shades and I was lucky enough to receive the one, “The Big Bang Berry” in my March Fab Bag. Incidentally it was my First Fab Bag and i got super excited on receiving this gorgeous berry tone lip color in my very first order :). (Know more about Fab bag here)
Sugar Vivid Matte Lipstick – The Big Bang Berry Review & Swatch
Big Bang Berry is a beautiful deep berry shade that looks gorgeous on my medium to fair skin tone and I think its bold purple-berry shade will flatter almost all Indian skin tones very well.
Product Claims: Creamy and moisturising, SUGAR It’s A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick combines the look of a classic matte lip with the benefit of incredible comfort. Enriched with micronized pigments and silica micro-beads, this matte lipstick glides on easily and settles to a gorgeous matte finish. FDA approved, this lipstick is free of mineral oil and parabens. It has a creamy consistency that moisturises and spreads evenly on the lips. Available in 4 stunning shades that are highly pigmented and light-weight, it provides maximum coverage in just a few swipes.
The Big Bang Berry is a wine matte lip colour shade for the confident woman.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a plastic rectangular packaging with the brand and shade name written over it. The lipsticks has a flat-slanted tip bullet inside. The packaging does not look very soft or pretty because of the shape and the sharp square edges but the cap clicks shut and the compact size makes it travel friendly and easy to carry around.
Texture, formula and pigmentation: The texture of this lipstick is soft and creamy which glides on the lips without tugging. It is not too creamy which really helps in not depositing excess product on the lips. It glides on the lips easily and provides a semi matte finish. The pigmentation is very good and lasts for good 5-6 hours with meals in between. And even as it begins to wear, the stain remains on the lips for several hours.
Its deep Plum shade will be flattering bold lip color for almost all Indian complexions. It gives medium coverage in a single swipe and full coverage in another. Though its not completely matte as “Sugar matte as hell crayons” but the finish of this lipstick is matte with a little shine on it. The formula is quite moisturizing which i like the best about this lipstick. So it does not leave dry patches behind and my lips felt mildly hydrated throughout the wear time.
My word: Overall its a gorgeous deep berry tone lipstick with a glamorous matte finish. I love the color, formula and long wear time of this lipstick. If you are looking for a rich, deep berry lip color in a semi matte finish with a long wearing and moisturizing formula, I’d highly recommend this!
Also because it is free of mineral oil & parabens and the price range is quite affordable, Sugar lipsticks are a must buy 😀
Rating: 4.5/5 (If only the packaging would have been a bit more feminine and pretty)
