Project Vanity x Pink Sugar Cosmetics

How lucky am I to have friends who live out their dreams in life! These were my very words as I walked around Serendra to get to Chelsea Grand Cafe for the launch of Liz's Project Vanity and Pink Sugar collaboration. As a friend, I've seen the prototypes of the lip crayons prior to the launch but there was something fresh that day, kind of like a warm fuzzy, you know everything's all right.

The day was extra cooperative, too. It was slightly windy and not hot nor humid at all.

Here are the shades of Project Vanity's Pink Sugar collaboration:

L-R: Love at First Swipe, Nothing to Wear, Ready in Five and Woke Up Like This

L-R: Love at First Swipe, Nothing to Wear, Ready in Five and Woke Up Like This

Love at First Swipe is a buttery brown that's just on trend right now -- and a nod to Tinder :D

Nothing to Wear is a plummy violet red that is fierce when paired with a black jumpsuit or an LBD.

Ready in Five is the Project Vanity signature pink and is a very flattering shade of pink {my kind of staple pink, actually}.

Woke Up Like This is your another staple, an MLBB, if you will. It's a stronger peach pink shade that accentuates the lips for a fresh or professional look!

Overall: The shade payoff of the lip crayons are intense and fulfilling as any other lip crayon I've tried. It's pigmented enough to merit acceptable number of swipes and covers the lips very well, too. My only comment is that it can be a little smoother when gliding but if you haven't been spoiled by very creamy formulas as much, it won't be a problem. The good thing is, the formula allows for it to hold well against the lips and is actually non drying. And when it fades, it doesn't stick to the sides of the lips!
