Since the blog relaunch this year, my first entry, A Review of Kylie Lip Kit Dupes has been getting views like crazy, and it’s because her line has truly become iconic – outstanding colors, skin-loving tones, and retro matte finish. I’ve ordered one unique already (I’m still waiting for that and stay tuned for the review!) but one of the highly-quality yet affordable homegrown makeup brand, Pink Sugar, just released new colors under two great lines – Lip Tint and Matte Lipstick – that’s inspired by earth tones and hues that don’t just look like King Jenner’s colors – all desaturated, dusty brownish hues – but suit the Filipina skin tone as well.
I swatched all of the products sent to me for review and it was such an easy task because I love their lippies, especially the Lip & Cheek Tints. But also let me share how great their matte lipsticks are featuring two new shades (2 leftmost shades) that I think are very close Candy K (dusty rose) dupes.
Pardon my dry lips, girls, (blame the coffee!) but take a closer look at how beautiful the hues are and their matte texture despite the condition. As with their creamy (I would prefer this to describe it) matte lippies and retro matte tints also, they’re buildable and pigmented in one swipe. The consistency is outstanding (except for the darkest and lightest shades which are quite observable as well in other brands). The tint may seem a little less liquid – more cream – in texture but the overall effect is the same. And oh, the scent!! – fruity and sweet, just like Pink Sugar.
Pink Sugar Lip & Cheek Tint (matte lip cream) [PHP 350]* – My favorite hue is Queen Bee, a dark dusty rose-red that I’ve been recommending to friends. I’m repurchasing one soon because it will get emptied I think next week haha. My skin tone just brightens with it and it can be worn with dramatic eye makeup. Second favorite is Code red which is a bright warm red which looks nice on me as well. Next would be Honey Bunny which I think is a light 70’s brown that’s a Dolce K dupe (I’ve been finding one!!).
Pink Sugar Matte Lipstick (creamy – matte lippy) [ PHP 399]* – This one might be more expensive but the tube lasts longer and the two shades are definitely favorites. XOXO is more pink than Girl Next Door but both are in same intensity and dusty rose tones which i like for my looks lately.
I just want to say that I’m so proud of this brand and new colors. I’ve been wishing they’d have less bright colors for their lipsticks and tadahhh!, my wish came true. Good job, Pink Sugar and will definitely watch out for new launches!
What do you think of these swatches? I wouldn’t use filters na for my reviews so these are exactly taken from my camera – except for the ones with blur’s and texts.
