Sugar Poison Ivy : A dupe for MAC Diva

In today’s post I shall be reviewing a lipstick from Sugar Cosmetics which also happens to be a dupe of the MAC DIVA.

It is the Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick in the shade POISON IVY.


I heard about the this lipstick last month when they were introduced in the December Fab Bag which is a monthly beauty subscription box. Amongst all the shades available (they have 4 variants), I was drawn towards this deep red and marsala shade. When I finally received my Fab Bag, of all things I was sent, I was most keen on trying out this shade. And Viola!!!!! It was a beautiful deep red shade, perfect for the winter season. In seconds I realized that it is pretty much a dupe for my favourite fall MAC lipstick ; DIVA.

Now with the preface sorted, I shall be delving into my post, drawing an analogy between the two.



We all love the way our MAC lipsticks look. There are no two ways about it.
Poison Ivy does a pretty good job too in terms of its packaging. It is all black except for the tail end which depicts the shade of the lipstick. The cap is entirely matte with a subdued shine. In all the product looks quiet intriguing. Since this is a crayon lipstick, it comes with a sharpener. Personally, I feel that is the only drawback about this lipstick as I don’t like using Β a sharpener on my lipsticks owing to its chances of product wastage.



I was amazed at how close these 2 shades were when swatched. Both are a deep red shade, a little of marsala, a little of oxblood and a little of berry. This shade is one of those dramtic hues that can be added into your winter lipstick stash.



The MAC Diva is part of their Matte collection. It glides on easily without
bleeding and stays put for 4 hours.Poison Ivy too has a easy to apply formulation. They claim it to be matte lipstick and so do they deliver. Stays put on your lips for over 2 hours but might bleed a little. Be careful of the application and you are good to go.


MAC Lipsticks retail for INR 145O whereas Sugar Lipsticks retail for INR 799.Β At a price like that, the Poison Ivy is definitely worth a try. πŸ™‚

So all you ladies, reach out for Sugar Cosmetics Poison Ivy in case you want a dupe for MAC Diva. But in case you are partial to MAC Lipsticks, I suggest go out and buy both.

Sugar Cosmetics can be purchased online from Nykaa

Until the next post, Stay Stylish Stay YOU
