Skin Tone: Medium Tanned
I am back after a long time. I was vacationing in Kerala and enjoyed my trip to the fullest. I have not seen such greenery before. Kerala is a beautiful state and my trip turned out quite refreshing. I also wanted to share a few pictures from my trip but my PC isn’t working right now. Anyway, I am now back to reviewing after this beautiful and long holiday. Sugar Cosmetics has launched its own liquid lipstick range and I picked up four of them. This review is about the shade ’09 Suave Mauve’. Let’s get into the details.

How to Apply:
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.
My Experience with Sugar 09 Suave Mauve Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick:
Sugar always packages its products in a beautiful box. The outer packaging of this lipstick as well has a funky design. The lipstick comes in a clear tube with a black cap. The packaging looks quite similar to Maybelline ColorSensational Velvet Matte’s packaging but this tube has the name of the product printed on the cap. Also, there is a tiny sticker at the bottom; it bears shade number, name etc. The packaging is nice but somehow it doesn’t look perfect to me. The applicator, however, is perfect and defines my lips without any extra efforts.
Right now, the brand offers ten shades in this range and I have picked up four of these. This shade, Suave Mauve, is a gorgeous nude pinky mauve shade. This shade looks absolutely stunning on my medium skin tone. But, since this is a cool toned shade, it might look a little dull on some skin tones. For my skin tone, I feel it is a great MLBB shade. In fact, it is a perfect shade for fair to medium skin tones. The shade is well pigmented and requires just one swipe. Also, it doesn’t contain any shimmer particles.
Texture and Quality:
I love liquid lipsticks. This one has a smooth, soft texture that glides easily on the lips without tugging them. The texture doesn’t create any problem during application and it works well on the lips. The formula feels quite comfortable on the lips and it never looks patchy or feels sticky. But, I would suggest you to apply just one coat. It takes only a few minutes to dry out completely on the lips. Once it dries out, it settles to a perfect matte finish and looks so beautiful. This matte finish does not smudge or transfer.
This liquid lipstick has the tendency to dry out my lips. Currently, my lips have turned quite dry and require moisture every now and then. Hence, I make it a point to apply a nice lip balm underneath. If you also have dry lips, this issue can be cured by applying a non-glossy lip balm.
It stays on my lips for over 8 hours without smudging or transferring. It looks perfect throughout the day. It does not flake either. This lip color can even survive a meal but might look a little faded from the lips lines after an oily meal. It does settle into the fine lines of the lips, too. Removing this lipstick is a task. You require an oil based remover to remove this lipstick properly. I personally use Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean and it takes a few seconds to remove this from my lips. It does not leave any stain behind, though.
It is a very affordable liquid lipstick. It performs well and the brand offers an array of shades in this range. I love this beautiful mauve shade. It is a nice addition to my nude lip colors collection. I love everything about this liquid lipstick except that my lips require extra moisture at times.
