Sugar Cosmetics It’s A-Pout Time Vivid Lipstick The Big Bang Berry Review, Swatches
INTRODUCTION – Winter is almost here and it is that time of the year when we are going to sport the deepest, darkest bold lip colors all day long. Warm Indian skin tones and bold lip colors are the best combination and thus for this winter I wanted to add a plum/berry kind of lip color. While I have tried every other brand in the market, I was yet to try the Sugar Cosmetics. I have heard so many praises for their collection that this time I decided to purchase this pretty wine color for winter. Read on to know my review on it.

Packaging –caoporm-超频在线视频 The Sugar Cosmetics It's Pout Time Lipsticks are encased inside a cardboard box. It comes in a slender rectangular matte black body with the brand name and shade name written on the lower portion. The packaging is extremely classy and easy to carry around. It has the usual twist up packaging, shuts with a click and relatively light weight yet sturdy. Overall, the casing is worth the product.
Shade – The shade 01 The Big Bang Berry has been named after the TV Series The Big Bang Theory. In fact, every shade of this series is named very interestingly as well. Coming back, the shade has been described as ‘wine matte’ color as per the website. Taking a close look at it, the shade The Big Bang Berry is a deep plum berry with wine undertones. It has no shimmer or frost at all and can be described as the perfect deep plum fall shade. The color is a great option for night wear and compliments the warm skin tones really well. For dusky to deeper skin tones, it can be a great everyday deep color.
Pigmentation – The pigmentation is a bang on! It goes on giving a wonderful saturation of color to the lips with a single swipe and with another layer, the full saturation of color is seen and gives a neat look as well. You won’t need any lip liner or concealer to bring out the best of the color. Therefore, I am thoroughly impressed with the pigmentation.
Texture and finish – The texture is the lipstick is smooth, creamy and glides like a dream. The texture leans towards the gel-matte kind of lipstick and feels light and comfortable. No matter how many layer you go for, the lipsticks wont bleed or feather at all. It doesn’t accentuates on fine lines of the lips and neither dries out. It is surely the most comfortable matte formula I have worn till now. To summarize, I would say the texture is something between satin-matte and dry-matte.
Formula – The lipstick is formulated with silicones and that is why it doesn’t have the glossy creamy touch but feel super smooth against the lips. It is better to exfoliate the lips to get a neat and proper look. You don’t need lip balm on top or underneath as the lipstick is hydrating enough. In fact, the lipstick is free of mineral oil and parabens as well. However, the lipsticks transfer a little.
Staying power – The lipstick is surely long lasting and lasted on my lips for around 6-6.5hrs. After meals, it will fade off and get removed from the centre easily. That is why you need proper retouch after food intake. The lipstick does stain the lips slightly.
