Hope you are doing great!
By now you all must be knowing that I am a big fan of Sugar Cosmetics and this brand continues to surprise with their every new launch and that too back to back! Yes..Yes I am talking about their newly launched compacts called “As Nude As It Gets” ! What attracted me to this compact is its SPF protection which is certainly a bonus. Excited eh? Let’s get into the review fast:
Achieve the gorgeous bare-face makeup look that looks fresh, flawless and all natural! Introducing the SUGAR As Nude As It Gets SPF 15 Compact, that gives your skin a natural, luminous yet matte finish with its ultra-lightweight velvet formulation. It’s difficult to predict what you’ll actually fall in love with more – its uber-portable design, its concealed sponge applicator or its weightless formulation that provides buildable coverage you’ll never do without again. Our guess? All these and more! Now available in 3 shades to suit your skin tone:
How To Apply:
Step 1: Cleanse and moisturise your face. Using a face primer will help makeup stay on longer and give an even, smooth base.
Step 2: Use a concealer on the areas that require coverage (i.e. the uneven portion of the face) followed by a foundation to blend evenly
Step 3: Now take the SUGAR As Nude As It Gets SPF15 Compact in a shade that matches your skin tone and apply it all over the face with the sponge applicator. While using the sponge, ensure that you first dab the product and pat well onto the skin and then blend it evenly. This technique provides coverage and also makes the skin look flawless.
Pro-Tip: Ensure that you apply the compact powder on the neck as well as other visible areas. Otherwise, your face can end up looking different from the rest of your body!

My Experience Sugar Cosmetics As Nude As It Gets SPF 15 Compact in 02 Cappuccino:
Whoa..what a classy packaging!!!!!!!!!!
Sugar Cosmetics As Nude As It Gets SPF 15 Compact in 02 Cappuccino comes in a matte finish square black case. It comes enclosed in a beautiful cardboard box with their usual Sugar graphical prints where all the necessary details are mentioned including the shade name and ingredient list. The case lid has the Sugar Cosmetics Logo printed on it, which looks absolutely elegant. At the back of the case, the product name & shade is printed too. It comes with a mirror and an applicator sponge for easy application. The mirror is quite wide which I really like. The case has a magnetic closure which shuts with a click sound thus it’s very sturdy and travel-friendly. Overall I absolutely love the packaging.
Shade, Texture, and formula:
I am NC42 ( Wheatish) thus I chose 02 Cappuccino shade which goes pretty well with my complexion. I think this shade will definitely suit your skin tone if you are between NC40 to NC42. Talking about the texture and formula, It has a soft texture and very light weight formula. It blends easily and gives you a fresh and flawless look without being cakey. As it gives matte yet natural coverage thus it’s very comfortable to wear during daytime. You can wear it over your concealer/foundation or alone, both way, the formula feels very lightweight yet even out your skin amazingly. It gives you medium coverage thus if you are looking for a coverage compact then better skip this one. But yes it’s a perfect choice to set your concealer or foundation.
Here are the swatches:
It stays put on my face for almost 4 to 5 hours without being patchy. After that, it started fading evenly. If you to sweat a lot then this may last not more than 3 hours but then you can touch up anytime without feeling like a frosted cake! Now that’s a relief! …!

- Does not give full coverage.
Overall, Not only the packaging is adorable but This soft and silky compact gives your skin a natural matte finish that looks and feels like your own skin. with SPF 15, Sugar Cosmetics As nude as it gets compact gives additional protection. I already got compliments from my hubby and my daughter’s tutor for my flawless face (I wore it alone over my moisturizer)! Now I understood why Sugar Cosmetics named it “As nude as it gets” because It Looks really natural without making you feel as if you have applied any powder on your face. Wear it alone or over the foundation to set and remove shine, you won’t disappoint with this compact. Since I was planning to buy MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural to set my foundation but then this product launched and I am completely sold!
I really hope that Sugar cosmetics does come with some more face products!
