NEW Pink Sugar Creamy Mattes | Girl Next Door, Hot Mess, XOXO, Hotline Bling Review and Swatches


This Summer, Pink Sugar gives us amazing nude and mauvey hues with their Creamy Matte lipsticks! This collection is L-O-V-E! They are my source for living now becuase they just hit the sweet spot for anyone who are into nudes right now. They also launched a lip and cheek tint collection that could rival the Kylie Lip Kits but this Creamy Mattes are the ones that caught my beauty addict attention. So yes, Pink Sugar, take our money! Take all of it!!

Following the success of their launch last year, Pink Sugar is not about to sit on their laurels. Nope. This Filipino home-grown brand, which I might add is headed by two brothers, are addicted to beauty as much as we are. I was told that they listen very carefully to the reactions and suggestion of their consumers and that is why they are giving us these shades this year!

Subtler shades but with lots of impact, these pink and rose nude shades are seen everywhere! On the runway, Instagram and on almost all celebrities. I'm glad that Pink Sugar created these for they are priced more competitively that all of us can rock these latest trends!

Girl, these fabulous Pink Sugar Creamy Mattes are only P349! 

I know, let's hoard. But for god's sake, leave some for me! My sweldo won't come in til next month!

The velvety texture of Pink Sugar Creamy Mattes rivals high end brands in my opinion. I've tried almost all the expensive brands out there and to be honest, they don't differ much. Pink Sugar applies nicely without much drag. The bullet doesn't breakdown easily when swiping and applies evenly and opaquely. There a vanilla scent that is definitely subtler now in this set.

How high is my EQ that I was able to take photos of these!

Did I just make you gasp? Yes, I know! They are gorgeous. These nudes, pinks and mauve lippies are a dream!

Let's start with the individual lip swatch and selfie, shall we?

Pink Sugar Creamy Matte in Girl Next Door

Meet Girl Next Door, a deep warm peach nude that is fast becoming my favorite. This, I think will sell fast since a good nude lipstick in a lower prize point doesn't easily come by in our makeup counters. This soft shade goes with any look. It's ultra feminine and adds a bit of glow to the face. I love the clean swipe of this lipstick and how smooth it made my lips. Yey to lipsticks that doesn't settle on the lines. I think Pink Sugar is really acing the formulation to rival higher end brands.

Pink Sugar Creamy Matte in Hot Mess

Nothing messy with Hot Mess, a warm medium rosy pink. This is actually a good dupe for NARS Audacious Anita. If peach is not your cup of tea and want more of the trendier rosier - with a hint of mauve in it - lip color, Hot Mess is for you. Well, you and me both. I've on the Mauve since 2014 and the obsession hasn't weaned a bit! This mix of warm and cool tone on the lips, a mix I didn't think would look good me, actually does! personally, I love how it makes my lips appear fuller and how it adds a character to a usually plain no makeup makeup look. Still wearable for day to day but with just a hint of spice.

Pink Sugar Creamy Matte in XOXO

XOXO is a crowd pleaser. This deep warm pink appears quite mauvey on me but it is a lot rosier in person. Almost a dupe for Happy Skin Honeymoon Glow! If you're a fan of Colourpop Bumble but finds it too terracota, XOXO is a much subdued terracoata undertone and better to wear daily.

I'm not sure if its the lighting but XOXO appears deep mauve on me which I really love! I've been looking for something to replace my Colourpop Lumiere Lippie Stix and I think this shade is it.  The wear is unexpectedly comfortable and retouch is a breeze. It lasted fairly enough through a decent meal and a few drink but a touchup is required.

Hotline Bling seems a bit misplaced in this new collection of Pink Sugar Creamy Mattes but it was immediately love at first swipe! It's an opaque high intensity pink magenta pink lip color that resembles between NARS Michiyo and Greta. This tube also is the smoothest to apply! Look at how lovely the application is and I didn't have to work so hard at getting that even coating.

This shade definitely stands out alone so you don't need to do much when rocking Hotline Bling. Just a clean face with a bit of blush and mascara and you're good to go. 

All these new shades are definitely worth every penny. the color selection alone is up to date that you don't have to drool over expensive brands! You can get the same look and effect without giving up your breakfast lunch and dinner. :) I know, we've all than done for the sake lf this beauty addiction.


What to love about the NEW Pink Sugar Creamy Mattes:

1. Lovely new color selection that rival high end brands
2. Creamy texture of the lispticks make it comfortable to wear
3. Highly pigmented colors
4. Formula is non-drying, doesn't cause chapped lips.
5. Price incredibly affordable at P349 each tube

There is nothing that I dislike about this collection at the moment. I'm really glad that Pink Sugar continues to apply the latest trends and coming out with really nice formulations that Filipinas would love. I surely hope that this is just the beginning and that they will continue to wow us with their next collections.
