My Experience with Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Brandy Harrington:
This lip crayon comes housed in the Sugar Cosmetic’s iconic matte graphic cardboard box. It bears the shade name, price and ingredients. It also comes with its own free sharpener, and this is a good addition as not all sharpeners cater to all sizes of lip crayons. The lip crayon comes i in a matte black packaging with the bottom of the crayon bearing the shade, which is useful in picking out a certain colour among multiple lip crayons from this brand. The cap closes down well, but I am extra careful while opening the crayon as I want to avoid nicking the top of the pencil. The crayon does sometimes get messy. I also don’t store it in the box, as sometimes the cap comes off while taking it out.
The crayon itself is not too thin and not too thick for me. In two or three swipes, I can easily line and fill my lips. The texture of the crayon is ultra-smooth. No pressure is required during application. This crayon sets into a smudge-proof finish within seconds. It has a comfortable matte texture. It glides on the lips without tugging or pulling. The colour payoff is amazing too. It does not budge at all, except when I eat something. It is transfer proof to an extent.
“Brandy Harrington” is described as a rusty-reddish pink color. It looks like a pretty dark brown in artificial light and looks like a pale-toned milky brown in natural light. It has slight pinkish, reddish undertones. On my sister, who is one shade darker than mine, this is a perfect n*de color. This is the kind of colour that I generally reach for and now I have another amazing n*de shade in my collection.
The only problem is that if this crayon is not sharpened properly, it may not give neat lines. Sometimes, it even looks grainy on the lips. So, if you have thin lips, you have to be extra careful by lining the lips with a lip liner first. Also, sharpening the product to give a pointy tip does lead to product wastage. I feel at this price, the product should have been retractable in exchange for the free sharpener.
Pros of Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Brandy Harrington:
