Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Lip Crayon in Mary Poppins – Review and Swatches

If there is one makeup item I will have to choose from all my makeup I would choose a lipstick. Lipstick I feel can change a look completely. Lately I have been loving the lip crayons from different brands and of different textures.

Recently I was sent Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Lip Crayon in Mary Poppins. I’m currently using their Eye Told You So Eyeliner and it is my current favorite and so I was really excited to try the lip crayon as well. I must say, I’m really impressed!!!

Weekend OTD and FOTD!!


We had a formal event to attend today and there is nothing better than a LBD. I wore one from Marks and Spencer.

My make was simple. I concentrated on fresh skin, mouve purple smoky eye, which I created using my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I went for a nude lipstick from L’Oréal.

Completely loved this look


I have been waiting to get an Urban Decay Naked (1,2,3) eyeshadow palette. I have the Urban decay Basics eyeshadow palette which is my most used eyeshadow palette. I requested a friend to pick up the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette during his trip to the US (I wish Urban decay was available at India).

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette includes 12 eyeshadows which are of the same size as an individual shadows. The color theme is that of pink and brown, which you can wear on a daily basis. It also includes a dual-ended eye brush, and a week’s worth of samples of each of their primers.

The packaging is beautiful. The case is a rose gold metal with “waves” indented across the exterior.

All the shadows are highly pigmented, soft, blendable, and easy to use. All the shades stayed a good 8 to  hrs on my oily eyelids without primer and almost 10 hrs with primer.

Darkside is my favorite shade, as it was somewhat unusual, and it wasn’t too frosted.

My tips to stay healthy with a desk job!!

We generally are on our desk for more than 8 to 9 hours every day. That’s all our stories, we feel it’s a regular job but it does a lot of harm to our bodies. I developed a really bad cervical spondylosis earlier this year which actually was a wakeup call. Since then I have a few tips that have helped me be a little healthier. I’m still not living a completely healthy lifestyle but I’m making a steady progress. Below are a few tips that I follow at work which have helped me. Hope these tips will help you too.


I always start my day with a good stretch. I know doing these movements on the work floor may be a little awkward and so I always go to a corner or washroom to do a few simple stretches. I do these stretches 2 to 3 times a day so that my muscles get some break and it increases blood circulation which makes you work better.


Don’t spend time behind your desk during your break

It is so simple and easy to just have your lunch at your own desk, especially when you don’t feel like socializing with colleagues, but it’s so bad for your body. Go outside for a walk or do something where you don’t have to stare at a screen (so no staring at your phone for an hour as well!) or sit in the same position you are doing all day. You deserve some break time!

Tea time!

Have several small tea breaks with collogues. There is nothing nicer than giving your brain and body a little rest. So have your cup of coffee, green tea, hot chocolate or whatever gives you a little pep in your step, and go fully focused back to work.

Go for a short walk

According to several studies, you should have a little walk every 20 minutes after sitting behind your desk, which means that you need to get up and wander around the office for a little bit approximately 16 times per 8 hours shifts! Make it your own little round in the office, but try to make it different each time, or you might end up being the office weirdo that walks by every 20 minutes.
