Happy Monday! It sure is a great start of the week especially when your matte lipstick is not drying and actually will stay on your lips all day. I know a lot of people have that problem so today I will be reviewing another product from Pink Sugar since I cannot get enough of them and can't get over how much I love every product I have tried so far. This time I am talking about 3 shades from their Sugar Tint line which are lip and cheek tints. I can't get enough of them and after using them quite frequently recently it reminded me I haven't talked about them here on the blog so it inspired this post. So enough of me going on about them I should just go on into the details of why I love them so much.
Description (from website): A gorgeous wash of color for the lips and face. It's long-lasting, lightweight formula; delivers a lovely matte finish; moisturizes, nourishes, and softens lips during use; formulated with coconut oil, aloe vera, and vitamins A, C, and E; fades to a pretty stain over time for a natural flush of color.
Where to buy: BeautyMNL & pinksugar.com. Also in SM Beauty in SM Department Stores, Watson's and supermarkets. This product cost 349.00php in a plastic tube with many shades to choose from.
Color & PigmentationThe three shades I own are Pink Passion, Honey Bunny and Queen Bee. Pink Passion is the hot pink one and it was the first one I ended up buying. It is a nice statement pink and I knew I wanted a darker pink and this one is very vibrant. It has an undertone of a blue toned pink but does not show up too blue but it is a great pink tone for a lot of complexions. The pigmentation for Pink Passion is it is greatly pigmented and with just one swipe you get a nice opaque pink but it can be built up to create that really hot pink color or if you want it can be a nice ombre color and be applied in a light layer. If you want to see me wearing it I was wearing it in this blog post. The second one is Honey Bunny. I found out about this on another blog and it was used as a contour shade and I found that intriguing. I use it as a lippie and it is a gorgeous nude and the color is a mid-tone brown with no other color undertone to it. It is the ideal nude and looks great on a lot of skin tones. It does not wash me out like some nude lipsticks I have tried so this is the right color for me and finally I found one I can wear and feel great in. Last is called Queen Bee and it is a mauve pinkish red. It is a more vampy color out of the three and was my favorite autumn color. Again, I was on Facebook and read about this being the perfect mauve shade but the problem was it was always sold out online and in counters but when I got my hands on it I can see why it is a fave. I don't own many colors like this and I am glad I got this one. It is a lovely redish berry color but also has a subtle pink and purple undertone too. It has great pigmentation and covers my whole lip in one swipe which is amazing. I love this and if you want to see me wearing it I last wore it in this blog post.
Application & Staying PowerI'm going to be reviewing these as lipsticks but they do amazing on the cheeks as well. It is another sort of two in one product from Pink Sugar which if you read my review of the eyeliners here than you would know how much I loved a good two in one kind of product. I bet the brown would be a great contour shade and both the pink and mauve would be a great blush shade. They are all matte so no shimmer so I'm sure it would look great on the cheeks as well as it does on the lips. I may have to try them myself one of these days.
With that the application with these are so pigmented. They are opaque in one swipe across the lips but if you want one layer you can or build it up a bit like I do and get that great matte finish that looks amazing. It is super matte and has a great texture. It does not show off any lines and makes a nice smooth surface across the lips. As for the staying power, I can't compliment these enough. They have amazing lasting power and it can last me all day without smudging. It starts to fade at the end of the day or extreme eating and drinking. If not than it can go for so long. An example I have with how good it stays on is my niece who is 6 years old wanted to smudge my lips to make me scary since it was Halloween and she went to my lips and used her fingers to move it but she got frustrated as it would not budge and even if she pressed harder it was just there. It did not come off one bit and there was no transfer on her finger either. It was that good and each one if like that. It does not feather, smear, transfer or leave the lips unless you want it too. The downside is you might need a makeup wipe or makeup remover to fully get it off if you want to take it all off. For me it is a good problem because I know it will stay without me worrying about it transferring anywhere while it is on. So pretty amazing formula that lasts a long while. Last thing I love is the scent. It smells just like candy and it does not transfer to the lips but when you open it up you can smell it and it gets me every time.
SwatchesHere are the swatches on my arm. These are a few swipes on my arm to really bring out the color. I do love all the colors I have chosen and they all look lovely together. The swatches on my arm lasted me a good while and had to be removed with a makeup wipe since they are so long lasting. Pink Passion is going to be my go to summer color and whenever I want that hot pink to stand out and have a bright lip. Honey Bunny is my go to nude lip and is such a flattering nude. It is a close substitute and I might have a dupe for the color in my collection that I might have to share soon. Queen Bee is such a lovely mauve color and I do love the unique color. It is so pretty and I do love the color especially while on the lips.
Overall ExperienceOverall I love these lipsticks and it has great value and amazing quality. I enjoyed using each one and with it's unique packaging it makes it so appeasing to the eyes as well and I loved the ones in the set. I'm extremely happy with these and I do recommend them especially these shades above because it has great formula. There are so many shades to choose from and you get a variety of colors that are either nude or more vampy and they have lovely pigmentation. If you get a chance you should pick them up as they have a superb formula for a matte liquid lipstick and can't get enough of them. I wasn't disappointed with the quality and it lived up to the hype I was reading about it. Everything about them is worth it and I saw they have a few more shades that just came out so there are immediately going on my wish list especially since they are summer themed. I have a big ol' list of shades that I need to pick up written on my phone so this won't be the last time you will see these. Have you tried any of the Pink Sugar Sugar Tint Lip & Cheek Tints yet?
My rating is: ♥♥♥♥♥
I'll give it 5/5 because I love everything about this lipstick. There are no faults and I found everything about it amazing. It's affordable and has great value, has great color options and the packaging is so nice for this product. The best thing is the formula and all the different shades that I have tried are really nice. It can complement many skin tones as well. So it was pretty amazing I think and would love to buy more of the shades to try them out and the colors they have.
That's it for this review of these Pink Sugar Lip & Cheek Tints. I'm so excited to get reviewing some of my favorite products again. I took a huge batch of blog photos last week and never felt so productive. It's been a while since I did that and got them edited and uploaded in the same day so it is getting my motivation to do this again more often. It did make me realize I need to buy some more backgrounds and some blog props to add and start upping my flatlay game. I have been saving some inspiration and next going to start practicing especially after getting a new camera. So a lot of exciting things and more reviews coming up so get ready to read about more of my fave products and brands I have been loving. That is it for these lovely lippies and if you do get a chance to try them you should!
