“How much SUGAR is too much SUGAR? Well, you just can’t have enough SUGAR ever. ” – Me 🙂
I love SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Scarlett O’Hara to the core, I was so wanting to own Holly Golightly from the same range. SUGAR crayon lipsticks are among the best lipsticks for Indian skin tone. The lipsticks are parabene free & do not contain harmful chemicals. SUGAR does not test on animals. Ain’t these really great reasons to buy another piece form the brand. I bought the lipstick along with SUGAR Tic Tac Toe Nail Liquor in the same shade- Holy Golightly.
I will talk about the nail paint in some other post, but today I am going to review SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick 04 Holly Golightly today for you. I was very impressed by the texture & staying power of Scarlett O’Hara & I was lately feeling to have a n*de lip color, so I thought, why not Holly Golightly. This lip crayon is very popular among makeup lovers. I really resisted myself from getting this until now. Because I didn’t only want this but I really needed this.
SUGAR says go lightly nude with this lip color which is highly pigmented, super coverage & excellent staying power. The texture is creamy yet gives matte finish which does not require reapplication again and again. The lipstick is safe for skin.
Rs. 799 for 5gms. Buy here.
The crayon lipstick comes packed inside a cardboard with abstract print. The cardboard contains graphics of a red pout, while the brand name, logo and product name are also printed on it. The ingredients list is not mentioned anywhere.
The lipstick bullet is packed inside a black matte chubby pencil with light plumish-pink matte band at the bottom and a black matte cover at the mouth of the crayon. Since this is a crayon lipstick, it is shipped with a black sturdy sharpner. The crayon & the sharpner are made in Germany (imported you see :)).
I am a fan of these crayon lipsticks. You can also call them chubby sticks as some other brands has come up with. There are only five shades in the range:
- 01 Scarlett O’Hara – My favorite of them all- a beautiful red shade
- 02 Mary Poppins – Bright Fuschia
- 03 Poison Ivy – Wine
- 04 Holy Golightly – Nude
- 05 Rose Dawson – Pretty Pink
Shade Description – Holy Golightly
This is a pretty nude shade with peach undertones. I love peach lipsticks but they hate my skin tone. But a nude lipstick with peach undertones will suit every Indian skin tone, like this one does. This shade flatters my wheatish skin tone beautifully.
The shade may look little pinkish in natural day light but looks pinkish brown indoors. Works for me.
Taste, Texture & Smell
This is a powdery matte lipstick. It also tastes powdery in the initial hour of application. The texture is creamy and glides on lips very smoothly without any hassle. There is practically no smell out of the crayon.
I have never had any issues at the pigmentation front of any product from the brand, SUGAR. This lipstick is also good in pigmentation. One swipe gives nice color pay off. 2 swipes seals the color for a perfect nude pout.
SUGAR Smudge Me Not lipsticks give the longest staying power. Next I love Scarlett O’Hara for it’s performance. But the staying power of Holly Golightly is average. It stays for 2-3 hours on my lips. After meals it’s gone. But I understand, it’s a light shade, and it can not deliver as much as a bright color would.
The finish of this lipstick is powder-y matte. No sheen is visible on the lips even though the lipstick has creamy texture.
How To Use Holly Golightly?
- You can wear it everyday. It would go with everything & on everyone.
- With bold eyes, it’s a must to go with nude lips. That’s when you can use this lipstick.
- While going for a no makeup look, I would love to wear this shade on my lips.
- Pretty Nude Shade.
- Creamy Texture.
- Nice color pay off.
- Everyday shade.
- Suitable for Indian skin tones.
- Free of parabenes & other harmful chemicals.
- Needs to be sharpened.
Summary : 4/5
Overall, this is a nice nude lip shade which gives nice color pay off and stays for decent time on my lips. I am actually wearing it every day, (I just get obsessed with every new lip shade). I do not like the fact that I have to sharpen it every now and then. I wish it was a retractable one. Since sharpening leads to product wastage too. Price too puts me off.
