Hello, everyone! I have been going head over heels ever since I opened my FAB BAG of March edition and found The Big Bang Berry shade from Sugar Cosmetics. This brand has few products but each and every one of them is worth mentioning. The previous launch of the SUGAR Matte As Hell Lip Crayons was phenomenal and so is this one. Although its spring/summer time now, the shade I am going to review is the perfect one for fall/winter and gives you the powerful attractiveness like no other. So, let's head to the review now.

My Experience With SUGAR It's A-Pout Time Vivid Lipstick 01 The Big Bang Berry:

Packaging: The lipstick comes in a sleek matte black rectangular packaging as opposed to the regular round ones. The brand name is written in white along with the shade name. The twist up function works as smoothly as it can and has a flat tip surface. I personally prefer tip lipstick bullets as they are so easy to apply. To sum up, it is a gorgeous and classy packaging.
Shade: The shade is a deep berry with strong purple undertones. There is absolutely no unnecessary shimmer in it and it is pure love! The color, as I mentioned, is perfect for winter months but will suit dusky and medium skin tones very well. I have worn it once in broad daylight of March and it does looks bright and strong with my yellow-toned fair skin tone. Nevertheless, you can totally rock it at night.

Texture: The texture is the best thing about this lipstick. It has a very soft creamy texture (creamy, but not the thick ones) which resembles the gel-like touch. It glides on the lips as smoothly as it can and no matter how many layers you wish to go for, it will never get cakey or irritating. It gives a matte finish but not the dry-and-parched-like-hell matte. It is very forgiving if you have dry lips and never emphasizes fine lines. Generally, when you reapply lip colors, they tend to look patchy or uneven but this one looks flawless. The lipstick is not totally transfer-proof but if you are careful, it won't disappoint you for sure.
Pigmentation: Single swipe is enough to give a strong color payoff but if you wish to go a little darker, by all means, two swipes are wonderful. Although dark lip color tends to bleed, it never happened with this one. I would only recommend lip liner if you want that shapely contoured lips but you can get that with lip brush too.

Staying Power: It lasted on lips for around 7 hours and left a pretty purple-pinkish tinge on the lips. Even when the color fades, it never gets clingy or patchy and goes off evenly. It has the tendency to fade off when you are having heavy meals, but I cannot complain about it as it happens with every lipstick! However, if you wish to remove the lip color completely at the end of the day, I suggest using a good lip makeup remover and some scrubbing.

Final Note:

SUGAR It's A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick is one hell of a lipstick I own. The packaging is efficient and gorgeous with the gel based soft texture that looks matte yet doesn't dry out the lips.
