Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer Pro: Deep Down Diopside ~ Review & Swatch

 

Sugar cosmetics launched 6 metallic shades in its Tip Tac Toe Pro Nail polish collection last year and I have a couple of shades with me. In this post I am reviewing the shade ‘Deep Down Diopside‘, which I received in one of the Fab bags (HERE).

 

Price: Rs 299 for 10 ml

 

Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer Pro Deep Down Diopside Review

  • Sugar Tip Tac Toe nail lacquer come in cuboidal glass packaging with black cap.
  • The nailpolish bottle is housed in cardboard packaging with all necessary details on the sides. The shade name is written on a tiny sticker along the side of the cardboard packaging, so it is difficult to sort if you stash the polish along with its outer packing. (THIS nailpolish by Chambor has a cute cutout in its cardboard packaging for easy spotting).
  • The bottle cap being cuboidal in shape doesnot always sit in line with the bottle when you shut it tight. It will be tad loose if you try to keep the shape of bottle, and if you shut it tight the overall cuboidal shape is lost. THIS nailpolish by Sephora is perfect in this regard. The shade name is stickered at the bottom.
  • The brush is short and straight ended which makes the application messy around the curve of nail bed. I like U-shaped brush like in THIS nailpolish.
  • Tip Tac Toe Pro nail lacquer is amazingly pigmented and gives full coverage in one coat itself.
  • Like any metallic nail color, this nailpolish is bit streaky so you need to apply it carefully to avoid visible brush strokes.
  • Deep Down Diopside is a beautiful sea green color with hint of blue. Sugar describes it as emerald green, but this is not an emerald green color.Β  I have done a huge post on Emerald green when it was Pantone color of the year, check HERE.
  • This is a metallic shade with diffused shine, which looks attractive.
  • Tip Tac Toe nail lacquer Pro dries really fast. One of the fastest drying polishes I have tried (and I have tried many! :D). This makes it perfect for times when you want to apply in jiffy.
  • Lasts 4 days without chipping and with minor tip wear.
  • Shade Deep Down Diopside is very very similar to Nykaa Mirror Chrome nailpolish in shade Lunar Green River. I have both and a comparison pic is at the end of this post.
  • Tip Tac Toe nail polish have Nine-free formula: No parabens, formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, xylene, formaldehyde resin, acetone and ethyl tosylamide.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See the similarity? Sugar Tip Tac Toe metallic nailpolish ‘Deep Down Diopside‘ is onlyΒ  tad brighter than Nykaa Mirror Chrome nailpolish ‘Lunar Green River‘. I will do a separate post on full comparison between these two polishes.

 

Overall, Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail lacquer Pro come in cuboidal glass bottle with cuboidal black cap. The cap does not always sit in line with the bottle when you shut it tight. The brush is short and straight which makes the application messy. The shade Deep Down Diopside is a gorgeous metallic sea green color with hints of blue. The pigmentation is insane and gives full opaque coverage in one coat itself. However,Β  being a metallic finish it tends to be streaky and needs to be applied carefully. It dries super quickly. I will definitely purchase more shades from the range.

Fab Bag September 2017 Review

 

I was pleasantly surprised to receive this month’s Fab Bag on first day of the month itself. This is their 5th anniversary edition and the theme for September Fab Bag is ‘The Object of Desire’.

September Fab bag is cream colored with pearl shine. I like how this month’s Fab Bag is quite spacious and I could already see myself putting it to good use πŸ˜€

 

Price: Rs 599 per month (less when you subscribe for 3 month, 6 month or 12 months)

 

Here is what I received in my September 2017 Fab Bag

 

 

 

1. Tvakh Midas Touch Ultra Nourishing Lip Tint (Full Size- Rs 195)

This is a tinted lip balm with golden shimmer drizzled on top of the lip tint. It has been a long time I deviated from my HG Lip balm (Forest Essentials Sweet Narangi) and let’s see how this one fares. The shimmer gives it a pearly effect on application

Β 2. Tvakh CE-Namon Lip Plumper (Rs 225 for 6 g)

This is also a kind of lip balm with cinnamon and Argan oil. Tvakh Lip plumper has SPF 4. I like that both the Tvakh products are Paraben, Petroleum oils and GMO free.

3. Seer Neroli and White tea Refreshing Soy Milk Enzyme Body Cleanser (Rs 72 for 30 ml)

This is a small size product which will last me 5-6 washes. The smell is refreshing.

 

4. Iraa Instarenew Multi-Action Under Eye Cream (Rs 490 for 20 g)

This is a long tube with good packaging. This eye cram has a unique blend of exotic algae, grapeseed and cucumber. It claims to visibly reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, dark circles and puffiness. Let’s see how it fares.

5. Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer – 043 Deep Down Diopside (Full Size Rs 299)

I was surprised to see this nailpolish in September Fab bag. Sugar has recently launched a few shades in Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer and this is one the new shade. However, I was bummed to see the shade as I bought same shade in Nykaa Chrome nailpolish just last month and both are exactly the same. 😦

 

 

6. Seasoul Moisture Matt Lipstick Lead Free- ML06 Purple (Full Size Rs 530)

This is the star product which Fab Bag folks asked to choose as makeup of the month. I chose a purple color and I was skeptical while choosing as I already have Purple lipstick (reviewed HERE) and I was afraid this might be the same shade, but I am so happy this is waayyy different. This is blue toned purple. This is quite a bold color and I am happy I chose this shade. Plus, this is really comfortable on the lips.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, I am quite happy with September 2017 Fab Bag. The bag is value for money πŸ™‚
