Pink Sugar recently launched 3 new Sugar Tints (Lip & Cheek Tints) and the names are so cute --- Slay, Pillow Talk and Love Bug. Are the names inspired by
The 3 new shades have matte finish and as much as I would love to multi-talk these babies on my cheeks, I have dry skin so I seldom apply "tints" on the area.
The 2 shades Slay and Love But are more on the "pink" side while Pillow Talk has a brown hue to it, that's why I sandwiched the brown at the center for you to see the difference.

L-R Slay, Pillow Talk and Love Bug
I happily talked about my first impressions and swatched them on my IG stories the moment I received them! Please follow me on IG @AskMeWhats and watch my IG stories because I usually share initial thoughts, unboxing and random tutorials! (shameless plug...I know!)
Just by the mere look of the swatches, I was leaning more on the shade Slay (top swatch) and thought Pillow Talk would make me look like a walking dead. But looks and swatches CAN BE deceiving! I actually love all 3 shades and they all work for me!
Housed in a similar box from the previous collection, I like how the shade of the print is exactly the same as the shade of the lipstick! (Witty!)
To those who dislike to keep makeup boxes (who the hell does that? :P), don't worry! The packaging is awesome! You get to see the shade immediately on tube and if you want to "make sure", the shade names are well printed at the bottom too!
Slay - cool tone matte pink.
Pillow Talk - Medium warm brown.
Love Bug - warm tone matte pink.
Slay would look lighter on a less pigmented lips! If I like the "tube-to-lips" shade, I'll use a lip concealer to "lighten up" the area before applying this color.
This is a very lovely matte pink shade with a rosy hue. I like how it is a cool tone lip color yet it warms the rest of my face upon application.
Just when I thought this will be my least favorite shade, this actually is a nice "gust of cool wind" to my usual lip colors! I like how it is brown and very 90's on swatch but has a modern twist or look when applied. Wearing this makes my face appears warmer and healthier!
The lightest color out of the bunch! This pale pink shade does not make my skin look "PALE" which is a nice start! This is actually a perfect lipstick to wear on first, second or even third date! No wonder the name is called LOVE BUG! I feel and look IN LOVE wearing this!
With all the positive points, I would like to point out that these Pink Sugar Lip & Cheek Tints are perfect in terms of shades. BUT, for someone with extremely dry and flaking lips, dryness could be an issue so it is highly recommended to exfoliate lips at least once or twice a week with a gentle lip scrub, apply a good amount of lip balm or lip conditioner several minutes before you apply the Pink Sugar Lip & Cheek Tints! Blot off excess moisture to prevent the lip color from sliding...and you'll thank me later :D
Pink Sugar Sugar Tints are priced locally at Php349.00 (approx $6.98).
