My Experience with Lotus Herbals Colorkick Lip Sugar Candy:
Lotus colorkick lip sugar candy comes in a twistable, pretty pink tube like packaging. The tube is not evenly shaped and looks more like a bottle with transparent cap. The cap shuts with a sound of click which ensures that it will not come off on its own. The packaging is very sturdy. Unlike other lip balms, this one comes housed in a transparent box. The outer box houses only product description, while the lip sugar itself bears only the shade name. The ingredients list is completely missing out of the product. All the lips sugars have similar packaging and can be differentiated with the shade name written at the bottom. Other than that, the lips sugar has a transparent cap which also makes easy to identify the shade. When the bullet is twisted down, it completely goes into the tube which prevents it from getting broke. Overall, the packaging is pretty cute, easy to use, and travel-friendly.
“Candy” is a pretty pink shade. It looks very soft and natural. Sugar candy has a glossy sheen to it which enhances the lips perfectly. The shade looks richly pigmented in the bullet but actually it is lightly pigmented. The shade almost looks clear with a wash of pink in a single swipe, but with multiple swipes (4 to 5 swipes on hand swatches) it shows off its true colour. The shade is very light and hence on my pigmented lips, it starts to show in about 7 to 8 swipes and cannot hide the pigmentation. When the shade is layered, it does not feel heavy at all. Even though the color payoff is light, the lip sugar gives even strokes. There is no patchiness while applying. The shade will look extremely pretty if you have non-pigmented lips.
The lip sugar in the shade candy has a rich creamy, thick texture that glides over the lips without any tugging or pulling. Despite having thick texture, there is no waxy feeling. The formula of this lip sugar is very lightweight and non-sticky. There are very tiny particles in the balm which seem to be sugar. It does not feel gritty over the lips at all. It also does not feel uncomfortable, even after swiping it multiple times. The lip sugar candy does have a mild and pleasant fragrance, which can only be noticed while sniffing or applying the product. The fragrance is not much noticeable once I am done with applying it.
This lip sugar hydrates the lip instantly and treats dryness and flakiness from the first use itself. It stays on the lips for about 3 to 4 hours provided I haven’t licked it off already. Even after that the lips stays nourished. It does not leave any stain behind on my pigmented lips. With regular usage, it improves the texture of lips. The lip gets less dry than before and stays softer. It heals dry and chapped lips effectively.
It also works great as an exfoliator. To use, I apply it over my lips and massage them gently. It buffs off the flaky skin and moisturises them. When I use the lip sugar overnight, it keeps them hydrated all night long and I woke up to nourished lips.
Overall, if you ask me to choose between Maybelline Baby Lips and lotus lip sugar, I would opt for Lotus lip sugar because, these are not at all sticky like Maybelline baby lips and provides better healing power. Also, the packaging is super-duper cute and has pleasant fragrance. However, if you ask me to choose between Maybelline candy wow and Lotus lip sugar, then I would opt for Maybelline candy wow as they are well pigmented. But in the end, I will be having both Maybelline candy wow and Lotus lip sugar.
