Review, Swatch - Manna Kadar Lipstick Saucy

3.18.2014

I actually received Manna Kadar Lipstick Saucy in the Wantable PR box last year, and it was my favorite from the box.
I immediately thought this lipstick was excellent both in color and wear, but kinda forgot about it until recently.
Saucy is a saturated fuchsia pink with glossy finish, and quite a gorgeous and unique one.
"Sheer Fuchsia Blue Pink" is the simplest description from the website, which doesn't do a justice for this pretty color.


Manna Kadar Lipstick Saucy



It is housed in a simple matte black tube and the lipstick bullet looks rather traditional.
The mild vanilla scent is just like the one from MAC lipsticks and the formula reminds me of MAC Lustre lipstick if not better.
In fact, I think Manna Kadar lipstick feels lighter and the moisturizing effect is longer lasting.
This lip hugging formula applies very evenly and also fades away naturally.
The color is very vivid yet sheer with buildable coverage, and it lasts on me for about 4 hours.


Saucy is definitely blue based but also has a nice dose of red in it.
There is shimmer but it hardly translates on lips.

After a couple hours
See how evenly the color faded without leaving any dry patches?
It is impressive.



I have been sporting Manna Kardar Saucy quite often this month simply pairing it with some eyeliner and mascara.
As bright as it is, Saucy is very wearable thanks to its complexity and superb formula.
The price point is somewhere in the mid-high range ($21), which I don't see as competitive cause MAC lipstick is $16 a piece with much wider color offering, for example.
The exterior doesn't look as attractive as some of the higher-end choices, either.
However, I can really vouch for the formula and the color Saucy, and I would remain interested in trying more lipsticks or other things from the brand.



Have you tried Manna Kadar Lipsticks?
What is your favorite hot pink shade for spring?

  1. Oooh I love this delicious shade! ^^ And seems like a nice quality too, fades out so evenly that some people might not even notice it by first glance. :) I've been browsing through some similar ones today (I hope my google-image searches for swatches have helped :P)

  4. Wow, such a lovely blue based pink! When it comes to bold lip shades I'm a huge fan of fuchsias and I would jump for this shade! I've never heard of the brand before but I'd probably fall in love with this too!

  6. For a second I thought this was a Lancome lipstick - just the design of the tube and the intensity of the pigmentation - they stood out so much to me! It looks great on you :) I'm just starting to crack out more pinks in my arsenal though a lighter shade at a time :) Can't wait to rock a blue-based pink like the one you're wearing!

    1. Thank you!
      For me, the tube is more like NARS but the lipstick scent reminds me of MAC. The quality is better than MAC generally speaking.
      I can't get enough of pink lippies and truth is I have too many. LOL.

    1. I think it is the name of the founder or the makeup artist, but I'm not so sure. ;)
      I love that the lipstick stays on and fades away so nicely that I don't have to worry about it too much although the color is quite bright!

    1. I'm happy this fuchsia isn't one of those plastic-y fake color that doesn't harmonize with skin tones.
      This color would suit you very nicely as well. ;)

    1. I'm so glad this color fades very nicely. Like you said, the parched lips is the biggest problem with so many lipsticks.
      I totally agree the packaging is similar to the NARS lipsticks. Maybe they have the same manufacture! LOL
