Sugar Cosmetics Packaging by Beard Design

August 22nd, 2015 by retail design blog


Sugar is a make-up brand owned by Fab Bag, a popular beauty/grooming subscription service. We worked with Fab Bag to create the sugar brand to be chic yet approachable, sophisticated but with the quirkiness to appeal to a younger demographic and most importantly, a brand that would stand on its own in a market dominated by larger global brands. Essentially, a challenger brand!


We carried forward this approach of creating a challenger brand to our work on the packaging design, aiming to create a distinct identity for the products. They launched with a range of 7 make-up products – Eye Line, Kajal, Mascara, Lip Gloss, Lip Crayon, Matte Lipstick and Liquid Lipstick.


Some research on current products in the market revealed a certain “sameness” in the packaging of most brands in the premium segment. All of them were highly sophisticated and bland. We created a distinct look for Sugar using the triangulated illustration style. It unified all the products and created a memorable visual identity for the products.
