I am not a big fan of creamy lipsticks as they often move out of my lip lines. I am more into smudge-proof, matte shades as they stay in place for much longer, but this lipstick “Berry Maguire” from Sugar Cosmetics looked pretty and I wanted to give it a try. Read on for more details on this lipstick.

My Experience with Sugar Never Say Dry Creme Lipstick 05 Berry Maguire:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a quirky, paper carton. The lipstick comes in a beautiful, matte, black square tube with the name printed on it. However, as it is all black, if you have multiple shades, it will be difficult to pick the color you want to wear quickly from your stash. I hope they add some color-coded cap in the future to their lipsticks. The cap shuts tightly with a click and the packaging is travel friendly. Considering the price, the packaging is pretty good.
Shade and Pigmentation: “Berry Maguire” is described by the brand as – “when all the caffeine in the world fails to give you a rush, you know you can count on Berry Maguire to be your cheerleader even on the most ‘meh’ of days.” Try this deep berry red for a signature look that announces your arrival even before you say “Hello!” I think it is more of a berry pink shade than red, probably that is due to my skin tone. It looks like a bright, rosy pink shade that does not wash me out. It will look deeper and darker on fairer women. The lipstick has amazing pigmentation and it covers my super pigmented lips in a single stroke. The color payoff is great and you don’t have to layer it up to get the right color.
Texture and Pigmentation: It is indeed a creamy lipstick with a smooth texture that glides effortlessly on the lips. It feels very light and comfortable and does not feel heavy at all. It settles down in a soft, creamy manner with glossiness in it. This lipstick is pretty moisturizing and nourishing. You can apply it on your dry and chapped lips and it will heal the lips and never highlight the dry patches. It keeps my lips soft and hydrated throughout the day. My lips feel soft even when I take down the lipstick. It does not feel patchy or sticky on the lips. It never creases and settles in fine lines. I do not mind wearing this for long durations at all.
Staying Power: It stays for around 5 hours nicely, but if you have a meal or coffee, it looks a lot faded and requires reapplication. As it is a creamy formula, it often transfers and keeps fading from the edges. I have no defined lip line and hence use a lip liner to make it look defined and last longer. Removing it is pretty easy and you can use a makeup removing wipe to get rid of it. While reapplying, I prefer to take down everything from the lips and reapply to avoid patchiness.
Overall, I am pretty happy with the formula and color. I have never tried creamy lipsticks in recent times and I definitely enjoyed the change.
