By now, you’ve probably heard of Pink Sugar Cosmetics—the proudly local makeup brand whose 2015 debut swept Filipinas off their feet. Their lippies are a particular favorite at the BeautyMNL office: remember this massive swatching story we did on their Creamy Mattes and HD Lipsticks? And how about this one-mauve-fits-all feature that extolled their bestselling shade, Desire? Well, since then, Pink Sugar has released even more marvelous shades, and we think every single one is perfect for Filipinas. See the 9-strong collection below:
Here’s the breakdown: there are four new Creamy Matte Lipsticks (three neutrals, one bright) and five new Lip & Cheek Tints (a mix of nudes and reds). As usual, everything is very matte, very pigmented, and very long-wearing (try kissing the back of your hand for proof!). Thematically, these new shades are Kylie Jenner-esque; you could totally cop that Kylie Lip Kit look for a fraction of the price. But don’t take our word for it—scroll down to see the swatch-a-thon!
