This post is dedicated to all my beauties. I have been a fan of some of the sugar products in past which I received in my Fab Bag. Their lipsticks are to die for and I totally love some of their shades. Sugar has launched their new range of Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick and I got my hands on to the shade 08 Wine and Shine. So, here is a brief review on the product so that you can also decide if you want to invest in this product or not.
What the brand claims:
- The first thing what I notice that the brand is claiming, this product is “one-coat wonder’ that means you only have to apply one coat of this product to your lips and you are good to go.
- Highly Pigmented Product
- The product will stay the day and right up till the night. Zero feathering or fading.
- Matte lipstick which is Wine, coffee & date-proof with Vitamin E
- Available in 10 stunning shades
Price: Rs. 499 for 4.5ml product
Comes in 10 different shades:
01 Brazen Raisin, 02 Brink of Pink, 03 Tan Fan, 04 Plum Yum, 05 Rust Lust, 06 Tangerine Queen, 07 Rethink Pink, 08 Wine and Shine, 09 Suave Mauve, 10 Drop Dead Red
My verdict about the Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick:
The packaging is a standard packing which is same for all the other Sugar products. They all comes in a light cardboard cover box with a girl face on it. The packaging contains the Lipstick shade name and the ingredients detail which is a good thing. The manufacturing and the expiry dates are clearly mentioned in the packaging as well. The company has also mentioned their customer support phone number and the email id. The Lipstick comes in a thick clear plastic bottle with a black cap. The shade name is mentioned in the plastic bottle and the brand name is printed on the top of the cap. The packaging looks standard and not very high end from my point of view.
The applicator, however, is perfect to pick the required quantity of the product. As the brand suggested that it is a one-coat wonder and it truly is. You only need one coat to apply this lipstick. Sugar has also suggested how to apply this lipstick: ‘For precise application, apply it to your bottom lip first and then tend to your upper lip. Since the formula is very pigmented, we suggest applying the colour to the bottom lip first, pressing your lips together and then filling in your Cupid’s bow.’
The consistency of the lipstick is smooth and light which glides nicely on the lips. It does not look patchy and it feels really light. Applying just one coat will be a good decision for this lipstick rather than layering the product.
I love Matte lipstick and I think they look perfect on me. I have been using various lipsticks which have a matte effect and you should always know your matte lipstick before applying them to your lips. I have seen people with patchy or dried out lips and they look horrible. This lipstick is super matte and after application, it takes around 2-3 minutes to get properly dry. You will feel your lips drying out if you are not applying any lip cream under it so I would suggest you should. After the product dries out the colour look amazing and I would say I’m super impressed with the product pigmentation. The product sits on the fine lines of the lips giving it a perfect matte effect.
This has a smudge proof formula and I can say it kiss proof as well. It stays for good 7-8 hours without smudging or transferring. You need to hydrate your lips real nicely otherwise it can look flaky if you are wearing it for long hours. This lipstick can also survive meals but it can look faded from the lip lines after an oily meal. As this is super matte lipstick, it gets a little difficult to take it off. I used APS Cosmetofood remover (review coming soon) to take off this lipstick and it took few seconds to remove the lipstick completely. My lips felt dry after I removed this lipstick and I have to apply lots of lip balm to maintain my lips hydration. If we talk about the pricing, the price of this product is very affordable for a product like this with so many features and its gorgeous colour.
- The packaging contains good details of the product.
- Comes with a great application wand.
- Awesome consistency and light weight.
- Super matte effect.
- Stays up to 8 hours without transfer or smudge.
- Affordable price.
- Amazing pigmentation and true colour.
- The packaging and the look can be a little better.
- Little difficult to take it off from the lips (but that’s ok as it is a non-transferable lipstick).
- Need to use lip cream before the application of the product.
- My lips felt dry after I removed this lipstick.
Where can you buy: You can buy this directly from Sugar (here) or it is available now in Nykaa too (here).
I love this shade and I was looking for it in a Matte shade for really long. I think this is the perfect lipstick for me. I would defiantly buy another when this will get over. Thank you so much for reading. I hope this review was helpful.
