Sugar Coraline In The City #04 Its A Pout Time Vivid Lipstick (Rs 599) available Online
I missed trying Sugar Matte Lip Crayons but this time I didn’t want to miss out on VIt’s A-Pout Time Vivid Lipstick. Thankfully they were a part of March Fab Bag, though the shade “Coraline In The City” is not of my preference as I never wear coral lipcolor. I have tried out the formula and thought of sharing my experience with you.
Packaging – Lipstick comes in a matte black case which looks quite sleek and chic. The cap shuts with a click and doesn’t come off , which is good if you carry lipsticks in handbag. It has Sugar written on the case and shade name/ number on the bottom.
Shade – Coraline In The City is a pretty orange-coral, perfect for those who love coral lipsticks. Its quite bright and perfect for spring/summer. There are 3 more shades available in the range.
Texture & Formula – Sugar Its A-Pout Time Vivid Lipstick is a matte formula. It feels dry when you try to work it on, which is fine as most of the matte lipsticks are slightly dry. Formula doesn’t feel drying on the lips and stays put comfortably. However I did have to struggle to get even , non-patchy finish, as the texture is crumbly and it separates and settles into lip lines after a while.
Pigmentation – Coraline In The City is moderately pigmented and offers almost an opaque finish. I do have to layer it twice-thrice to get even color distribution.
Staying Power – The formula stays on for good 5+ hours on me with slight fading, it does turn patchy after initial couple of hours.
I like matte formulas in general and was quite excited about this launch. However the dry texture and patchy finish has left me disappointed. Coraline In The City looks crumbly after a couple of hours and settles into lip lines/ wrinkles. The shade is quite pretty though and perfect for those who love corals.
