Hello, lovelies~ I know I only have one lips, but it’s not a reason to stop buying lipsticks, is it? A couple of months ago, I saw these lipsticks at the Emina counter in the Kelapa Gading Watsons and bought it because it cute (strike through) new. I have tried it for two weeks and here is what I think of it.

The lipstick came with the colorful box that has all the complete information of the products including the list of ingredients. For a lipstick that costs Rp 36,000 (USD $2.74 ), it was quite surprising when I saw that it has a separate outer box. A cute one at that, too!

Inside the bright colored box is a blue, plastic lipstick case with white stripes printed on it. The lipstick is protected with a transparent lipstick cap that also showcases the fancy case packaging. The shade of the lipstick is printed on a round label sticker that is placed on the bottom of the case.

The shade I bought were Cookie Dough and Cherry Bomb, which are on the opposite side of the spectrum, brightness-wise. Cookie Dough belongs to the nude color family with a peach undertone, while Cherry Bomb is a deep pink with hints of  that is surely eye catching.
Too bright for daily makeup, but perfect for formal events.

I’m not gonna lie, I thought they were gonna come off poorly in terms of pigmentation. Yeah, I know. I underestimated them. I judged the book by cover, oh woe is me. These babies are highly pigmented even the nude shade! One swipe is all I need to cover all of my lip flaws. 
Not my favorite shade, but it's surprisingly pigmented for a paler shade

Despite the fact that I’m pleased with the awesome pigmentation, I was kind of pessimistic of their moisture level. Most pigmented lipsticks give off the poorest moisture to my lips. Or at least that’s what I have experience thus far. Not with these, though. They are moisturizing on my lips. Sure it rubs off easily after a meal or a sneaky kiss, but I don’t mind reapplying them throughout the day.

Overall, these lipsticks have been nothing but surprises at every turn of this review. It was pigmented and moisturizing at the same time. The only downside I find on this product is the longevity, but it was understandable given their moisturizing property. The packaging was adorable and colorful with a reasonable price point.

How about you? Have you tried these Sugar Rush lipsticks from Emina? If you haven’t, I recommend that you do, because we need to support our local brands. Plus, it also acts as a good excuse to by makeup. Sounds legit.

Anyway, let me know in the comments below what you think of this or if you have any recommendations from Emina. Thanks for reading and until then, I’ll see you later~
