Hope your Diwali ki tayyari is going well. As for me, I still have to go and buy an outfit for myself!
For this post, I will be reviewing the Sugar cosmetics smudge me not liquid lipsticks. I purchased two shades of liquid matte and one Vivid matte from Sugars Prive access hence, they cost me around Rs. 360 each (I am a smart buyer, guys).
Packaging and Pricing
The product is priced at Rs.499 for 4.5ml of product which makes it a very affordable option. It is difficult to find a liquid matte of amazing quality at this price in the Indian market. It is available in 20 different shades (I know, tough decisions to make) .
The packaging of the product is BEAUTIFUL! I mean don’t even get me started, I can go on and on and on and on about it. I’ve spoken about it at great lengths in my review of the eye told you so eyeliner and how it was the very reason I purchased sugar.
I ordered the shades Tan Fan (don’t get deceived by the name, it’s not tan colour) and Divine Praline (I’m a sucker for bold shades) and boy am I impressed! The consistency of the lipstick is just right and is very well pigmented. Just one swipe and you are good to go! The application wand is small and the applicator is very flexible and spongy making precise application a cake walk. The lipstick takes about a minute to dry which according to me is a plus point for those who like mixing shades and applying. It dries to a beautiful matte which does not feel heavy at all. It is not very drying. One thing about matte lipsticks drying your lips depends on how well you’ve prepped your lips. It’s important to exfoliate and apply lip balm before applying a matte lipstick to prevent drying and peeling. The lipstick is transfer proof.
The lipstick has literally survived the test of time! It stays the same for hours together and wears off a bit, mind you, just a ‘bit’ after having a good meal. It can go for 6-8 hours without smudging.
How can I not talk about the fragrance? It has a beautiful fragrance and I couldn’t stop smelling the swatch on my hand. My mom thought I was crazy but you gotta smell it to believe it.
- Not very drying
- Highly Pigmented
- Long wear
- Transfer Proof
- Soothing Fragrance
- A range of shades available
- The applicator does not have enough space to come out of the hole making it a messy process.
