This is a bright pink, almost bubblegum against my fair complexion. I'm fair with fair hair and no natural cheek colour and this pink sugar stands out too much on me, I like my lips to look naturally lovely, not as though I'm wearing lip colour. I do have rosy lips naturally, rosy, not bright pink. If I wanted the barbie look, or the WAG look, this would do well. However for those with darker skin, medium tone etc, this I expect might look beautiful, but never neutral as it is a true pink. The pigment has a lovely soft sparkle to it, which makes the lips look luscious but I find it a little drier in texture than my other chanel lip pencils, maybe because of this. However it also lasts forever on the lips and is even hard to clean off. I used lilirose and pivoine before, both from Chanel, and pivoine is two shades darker but more natural on me, as it's not a bright pink but a darkish rose.
To try and salvage this pink sugar colour on me, I toned it down with face powder and it became a lighter and therefore on me, a more natural pink, but still a quite strong pink and so not flattering, on me as I like strong eye makeup and strong pink lips made it all look heavy rather than lovely. Eastend Snob by Rimmel is a far better and more natural colour on me with my pale looks, but doesn't give quite enough definition. Definition and pretty subtlety, am still searching. I've given this lipliner four lipsticks because it is a good lipliner, it lasts, has a lovely lustre on the lips and is a lovely colour, for those that want a true strong pink. I wear lipliner on it's own blended in to the lips without any lip colour on top, so it had better suit my natural colouring, this doesn't, but it may suit you.

If you are looking for a true pink liner to go with pink glosses and lipsticks, this could be your match. That being said, it's too pink, I think, for a subtle lined look. It's going to leave a line unless you are have unbelievably natural pink lips. It's not a matte. And finally, I think it is too dry to use as a base for lipstick and gloss. But that could just be me. At my age, I need something a little more subtle. Younger women may love it.

A nice pink shade, though on me it's more rose than pink. The consistency is perfect, gliding on easily, not drying and long-lasting. I couldn't detect any shimmer. However, on my lips (NC15, nt very pigmented lips) it looks slightly peachy and a little bit brighter than it looks when swatched on my hand. I realize that it would make a nice pair with many gloss/lipstick shades, but it's just not flattering on me.

I just bought this lip liner today at Nordstrom. I really do think I like it so far. I am wearing it with the Lustering lipstick from MAC and it goes really well. My lips are lined already, so they are quite pigmented, but this seems to work so far. I will update in a few days after I have worn it awhile.

Pink Sugar is a medium pink with slight shimmer. It's more pigmented than MAC Dervish, and it's also less mauvey pink and more candy pink than Dervish. Chanel's lipliners are easy to apply (no tugging), with a non-drying, long-lasting formula. I love the brush on the other end because I can use it for NARS BabyDoll lip lacquer (a fantastic lipcolor to wear with Pink Sugar) when I pair it with this. The caps on both ends are sturdy and secure, and have never come off in my makeup bag.

This is the loveliest lip liner I own. I veer more toward pink hues on my lips. This liner goes with ALL of my pink lipsticks. I adore the lip brush that comes on the other end. It's just so convenient. The color is a subtle, cool pink tone. I sometimes fill my entire lip in with this, and put a rich lip balm on top of it, because the color is just so chic. I love that it looks natural on me. Some lip liners are ridiculously obvious, not this. It is exactly what I would expect from Chanel.

I just went to a Cosmetics Trend show at Nordstrom's this past weekend. I had my makeup done at Chanel, but I knew what I was going to buy before I got there. Well, this lip liner changed my mind in a hurry! It's the perfect pink to go with this spring's bright lip colors. My artist used it under Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in Splendeur (a gorgeous creamy hot pink with very slight shimmer) lipstick and topped it with a Glossimer gloss.
I loved that it came with a lip brush. True, a lip liner doesn't really need a brush for application, but if you're using it under a bright color, it helps to have the brush so you can be precise with the the lipstick application. I thought it was quite a lot of product for the price and therefore a good value for me.
I don't think I'd wear the color on its own with just a clear gloss, but I love how long it helps my whole lip look last.

A little too bright for me, bordering on too cool for my warm NC25/Px Real Ivory skin. I agree with a reviewer below that it's reminiscent of MAC's Dervish, although for me, Pink Sugar is a little more pigmented (which is great). The brush is useless for me, and I'd prefer more product than this extra little tool, although perhaps for some, this is a nice addition.

this is a GREAT color. it has just the right amount of nude and sexy pink in it. i am light olive skin. little bit of shimmer-- i dont understand those who say chanel lip liner pencils last forever as i could not disagree more-- mine will not last more than one 1/2 years TOPS. i use it to fill in and line my lips. the brush- i dont get the need for it. the product, it does not last long--if you are blessed and can line/fill an hour before you need to fix the rest of your lip, then yes, it will last like a minimum of 3-4 hours and not more ( tried it) -- but if you like the rest of the world -- line and go -- or line, fill, and go, forget this product especially at the price. it does not last 30 minutes with gloss. the thing i like about this product ONLY is the nice girls at the chanel counter that keep me interested and most especially the color specifically pink sugar--it DOES make your lips look perfect stripper or movie star- take your pick- pink with out looking wet and wild-ish! get my drift!!!

I tried pink sugar on at the store and thought I liked it. On my NC 35-40 it looks kind of bright and reminds me a bit of dervish. I find this pencil doesn't apply as smooth as I thought it would (seems to leave chunks of the liner on my lips). I don't think I would get this one again.

A great bright pink shade! Perfect for Chanel's classic pink sugar hydrabase lipstick, also works well with some of my brighter fucshia and coral lipsticks. As with all Chanel lipliners, the consistency wears well but also blends well.

I love this so much. Its a neutral pink. Better than nude which is too greyish for me, and less orange than Tawny Rose. Its in between. The best liner Chanel has come out with yet.

It reminded me of a pink they have had in the past. I wish I had never wasted my money on this one. It was not a pink I could wear. It looked much better on the display counter and I should have left it there.

This is my new HG Pink l/l. It is a med. pink w/a slight shimmer. It is neither too blue, nor too orange. I also like the packaging: it has a lip brush at one end, and comes w/its own sharpener. I am an NC25, and find this pencil neither too bright nor too pale. I could see wearing this over the entire lip w/just clear gloss.
