Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Review, Price, Swatches & Buy Online
If you have checked my December Fab bag review, you would very well know that the option of choosing your own bag plus the inclusion of the Sugar Matte as Hell Lip crayon were the main reasons for me to book the bag. Obviously I was disappointed as I did not review the shade Poison Ivy (I was really expecting it) but then I was really curious to try out a bright pink shade Mary Poppins. So let’s check out if this shade lived upto my expectations.

My take on the Product: I am currently obsessed with lip crayons and when this cutie arrived in my Fab bag I was really happy to try it out. The Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon comes in a black fat pencil form with a coloured bottom depicting the actual shade. The pigmentation is superb. One swipe is enough to add colour but 2 swipes will cover even the dark and pigmented lips. The texture is smooth and not drying. It glides on smoothly but as it’s a matte lip crayon as usual its better if you exfoliate your lips prior so that it does not accentuate the dry patches. The finish of the Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon is creamy matte so it does transfer on to cups and glasses. The staying power of the Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon is good and it lasts for about 4-5 hours with mild snacking. You get a sharpener along with the Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon as it is not retractable which leads to product wastage.
The shade Mary Poppins is a fuchsia pink shade with violet undertones. The shade is quite bright and hence I don’t think this is the most favourable shade for Indian skin tone. It will suit fair skin toned beauties. Personally I am not a fan of such shades and neither do they suit me. I would have loved the shade if it was just purely pink without the dark violet undertone which is quite visible. This shade changes in different light conditions. One drawback of the Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon is that though it contains one shade from all the major shade ranges (nude, pink, red, berry), you have just 4 colours options to choose from. I personally think the shade Poison Ivy is the best shade from this lot as you do not find berry/dark shades in other brands.

Rating: 7.5/10 (Shade Mary Poppins – 5/10)
Overall Verdict: Though I really like the lip crayon but the shade Mary Poppins is not a flattering shade for Indian skin tone apart from really fair skin tones. The violet undertones are quite visible which does not make it my perfect choice of a lip crayon shade. Also, considering the transferability, price and quantity, you can check out options in the Lakme Lip Tints, Revlon Colorburst Matte Lip Balms, Faces Lip Crayons or the recently launched Maybelline Lip gradation lip crayons.
As I mentioned earlier, this shade will suit fair skinned beauties or violet toned lipstick lovers, so if anyone is interested in exchanging their Sugar Matte as hell lip crayon, I am in for it!
