Half Caked Suga Suga Lip Scrub in Birthday Cake, Cotton Candy and Chocolate Cupcake: Review and YouTube Video

Not Sponsored: Hey Everybody! I mentioned in my 2019 goals blog post that I had a list of indie makeup and skincare brands that I wanted to try. One company that has been on my list is Half Caked. You can read about them here, but Half Caked is operated by two sisters that live in Tampa, Florida. I thought it was really cute that their company opened on Valentine's Day. It's a coincidence that I'm doing this review now. LOL They sell liquid lipsticks, eye pigments and lip scrubs. You guys know I'm a lip scrub fanatic and their packaging really caught my eye. I learned about them on social media (Instagram). This company is 100% cruelty free and their products do not contain animal derivatives (Vegan). I purchased three of their lip scrubs (Birthday Cake, Cotton Candy, Chocolate Cupcake) and have tried all three. Below are my thoughts. I made a YouTube video if you would like to see a closer look at the lip scrubs.

I love the packaging the Half Caked Suga Suga Lip Scrubs come in. The box is black & pink. The words Suga Suga are in a pink bubblegum script. There's a half-eaten, pink-iced with sprinkles doughnut shaped like a C on the top of the box. On the side, they tell you "Our sweet sugar lip scrub will have your lips feeling lifted and gifted by exfoliating and hydrating your pout." "Apply in curcular motions and wipe (or lick) away residual sugar. People will def be asking, how you get so fly?" Ok Half Caked! This lip scrub is good for 12 months after opening it. And these come in 8 flavors. Each lip scrub is SEALED! I've tried so many lip scrubs and I have never seen them sealed. So I thought that was GREAT!

Half Caked Suga Suga Lip Scrub in Birthday Cake ($12) - Supersweet
This lip scrub is bubblegum pink in color. Mixed within the scrub are purple, yellow, orange and green sprinkles. Those were the colors I saw in mine. Very festive! I also noticed the lip scrub was moist (which is a great sign). It has a sweet scent and it tastes like birthday cake with pink yummy icing. Half-caked describes it as a "slice of funfetti cake with vanilla frosting". It has the right consistency of granules for exfoliation. It moisturizes the lips. It's really good. You get 1oz of product in this jar. This would be great as a birthday gift. I would definitely purchase this lip scrub again. 

Half Caked Suga Suga Lip Scrub in Cotton Candy ($12) - Supersweet
Cotton Candy is my absolute FAVORITE out of this bunch! It is SO AUTHENTIC you guys! You really feel you're biting into a big wallop of cotton candy on a stick. It's AUTHENTIC! Tastes so good. This would be great for parties, bridesmaid's gifts etc. Very impressed. Excellent exfoliation and moisturizing. Really good lip scrub.

Half Caked Suga Suga Lip Scrub in Chocolate Cupcake ($12) - Bittersweet
Chocolate Cupcake didn't have a scent. Beautiful brown color. It had both a tart/bitter and sweet taste to it. I never picked up on any type of chocolate or cupcake taste. It's more like a brown sugar. I haven't found a company as of yet, that can get a chocolate lip scrub exactly right. Some come close like LUSH's Chocolate Lip Scrub and Good Earth Beauty's Chocolate Ice Cream Lip Scrub. But it's still not that CHOCOLATE I'm looking for :P

Overall, I'm REALLY IMPRESSED with Half Caked's Suga Suga Lip Scrubs! I will be ordering again. Their lip scrubs come in Birthday Cake, Cotton Candy, Juicy Watermelon, Dreamsicle, Orange Cocoa Puff, Peppermint, Chocolate Cupcake, and Gumball. Give them a twirl!
