As you can probably tell from our IG post, we are currently wading in Pink Sugar products to test. They’ve got basics like BB cream and concealer, as well as upper-tier stuff like multi-purpose tints and this newfangled eyeliner that’s actually a twofer (look!). But today, we want to focus all our energy into what we feel is the standout product in this debut collection: the lipstick. OMG, the lipstick is gorgeous. So gorgeous, that every girl at work had to have one for herself—and we took pics.

Below, feast your eyes on Pink Sugar’s range of HD Lipsticks and Creamy Matte Lipsticks, as worn by the female population at the BeautyMNL office.

“I love how this beautiful red brightens up my complexion. This lipstick is definitely a great choice for girls with yellow undertones. I can’t wait to wear this with a classy black dress!”

“I don’t wear red ever—I’m more of a coral or pale pink kind of girl. But I (surprisingly) loved this ruby lipstick! I’d wear this to a concert. A Taylor Swift concert. The color made me look and feel like a true Swiftie.”

“I have never, ever tried bold lipstick because I didn’t think I could pull it off, although I’ve always wanted to try. I was feeling adventurous, so I chose this orange shade. Getting out of my nude/MLBB comfort zone surprisingly made me feel more confident!”

“I wanted something vibrant, and this shade was precisely that and more! I’d use this to dress up for a festive time over food and good conversation.”
Left: Bing in Free Spirit
“Looking at the variety of colors that Pink Sugar offers, I was tempted to veer away from my normal nude. I think this would be a cool lippie to take to a hangout with girlfriends.”

“I chose this shade because the other girls said it looked nice on me! I’ll be wearing this when I want to power-dress.” Left: Kim in Teenage Dream
“This looks very natural on me. It’s great for my everyday look!”

“Plum-colored lipsticks add an edgy look to any outfit instantly.”
Left: Sheena in Date Night
“This reminds me of Pink Nouveau by MAC and Addis Ababa by NYX, my go-to shades for the nighttime. That said, this bold number is a new favorite.”

Right: Nicky in Gossip
“It is a really nice pink. I did some swatching, and I think it was just the right kind of pink that wouldn’t make my face look too pale. I am more into dark colors and reds when it comes to dates or meetings, but this color would definitely be my choice for a fun get-together.”

“I chose this shade because the color is good for day or night. I love how it complements my skin tone, too. I’ve seen a similar lip color on my favorite model, Emily Ratajkowski!”

Right: Christine in Naked
“This color is simple enough to wear every day without looking like you’re trying too hard. It’s the most neutral lipstick in the collection—and I prefer the no-makeup makeup look.”
Carol couldn’t decide between Daydream and O.M.G., so she rocked ‘em both!

“I wanted something bright but not outlandish, and I think the coral hue was just right for me. I would wear this during the day, no occasion needed.”

Right: O.M.G.
“It looks intimidating in the tube but is actually flattering when worn! The metallic sheen isn’t loud—it gives the color a different dimension.”


Left: Hillary in Bombshell
“I’ve always been afraid of the bold red lip. But I’ve heard so many good things about this shade that I just had to try it—and I don’t regret it at all! This delivers a true red pigment, so I think it’s great for the holiday season. It’s super long-lasting, too, so I definitely won’t have a problem eating as much as I want!”

Right: Steph in Bang Bang
“Red is my default color for day to day. I love the way it makes my face come alive, especially when I’m sleep-deprived. This shade is a classic, so it adapts to any occasion—from work to weddings to weekend drinks.”

“As far as red lipstick goes, I’m a rookie. But I just love the boldness of this shade. It’s glamorous enough to wear to a special event, but also sleek enough for a regular day if I want to amp up a casual outfit.”

Right: Patty in Catfight
“I was feeling adventurous and wanted to try something bright, so I went for a fuchsia lip. This is definitely a scene-stealer. Swipe it on and have all eyes on you!”
Left: Jyle in First Kiss
“Because I don’t use much eye makeup, the pop of color brightens my entire face. This lipstick is perfect for day-to-night wear.”

Right: Joanna in Desire
“This is a very wearable lipstick! I really like earthy, berry shades—they give a subtle hint of color without going over the top. This is something I’d want to wear to meetings.”
Left: Angie in Sangria
“I’ve never worn purple lipstick before, but this made me curious enough to try it once and for all. My conclusion: this looks great on morena skin. It would be suitable for a formal event, a weekend with the girls, or simply those boring days when you want to dress up your office wear.”

Right: Karen in Royals
“Love this unusual color! Most lipsticks at this price point come in pinks and reds, but I’m drawn to vampier colors like purples and plums, so I had to have it!”
Dani in Rumor
“This is more poppy than your average pinky-nude MLBB lipstick, but it was a nice surprise when I saw it on my lips. The color is understated but adds something special at the same time. I can imagine wearing this on the weekend while on a date, or to after-hours cocktails in a quiet place with a few friends.”
