Pink Sugar Creamy Matte Lipstick in Sangria

Hello dears!

I love wearing dark lipsticks during rainy days... it just goes well with the gloomy weather. Here's one that I am currently wearing...

Pink Sugar Creamy Matte Lipstick in Sangria

I bought this online at BeautyMNL last February for PhP 349.00. I was just browsing the site to see what else there is to buy. I usually go for products on sale, but Pink Sugar is a brand that I was curious about. It's pretty new and it's locally made so I would love to give their products a try. I rarely see dark lippie shades from drugstore brands so Sangria is something very exciting to me. :)

Info from the BeautyMNL's website:

CLAIM TO FAME: A semi-matte lipstick that delivers long-lasting color

FAST FACTS: Covers lips in gorgeous color with a soft matte finish; highly pigmented formula glides on smoothly; formulated with vitamin E and shea butter to moisturize, nourish, and soften lips during use; comes in 10 bold shades

PERFECT FOR: All day lip lusciousness

HOW TO USE: Twist to dispense lipstick. Apply evenly to lips straight from tube or using a lip brush for a more defined look. Try a two-toned look for added dimension.

Pink Sugar is brand-new local beauty brand for Pinays of all ages. If you’re fierce, fun, and quality-conscious but on a tight budget, we dare you not to fall in love with this entire line. Marked by catchy names and creative packaging, each product provides good-for-you benefits in a wide selection of wearable colors curated by makeup experts to complement Filipina skin. Pink Sugar products are free of parabens and not tested on animals.

I didn't check for swatches when I purchased the lippie online. I was just drawn to the dark shade. It also states that it is a matte lipstick that convinced me further to get it.

When it arrived, I was concerned of the metallic sheen that it gives. The shade still looks pretty cool though.

Swatch on hand

When swatched, it's like the sweet Sangria drink—a mixture of red wine, brandy, and fruits. I did find the swatch I made on my hand lighter than I expected. Good thing that the color is buildable as seen in the photos below.

Swatches on my lips

It's not the dark shade that I expected but I still like it. The metallic shade that I was worried about turned out to be a nice effect on my lips. It gives dimension to the matte-ness of the lippie.

This still doesn't solve my thirst for a nice, dark, matte lipstick, but it is still a great addition to my lipstick stash. 

What I've observed while wearing this shade is that it doesn't make my lips dry even though it's matte and it stays for quite a long while (unless I eat food that's oily or has soup like ramen). With these in mind, I think I'll buy more shades from Pink Sugar! :)
