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 Cosmetics 08 Wine And Shine Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick:
Packaging: The outer packaging is a beautiful graphic box and the actual lipstick comes in a small pretty clear tube with a black 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.
Shade: The shade Wine Shine is a deep berry wine shade that looks absolutely amazing on the lips. It is a very dark shade and has a purple touch to it. The best part is that it looks gorgeous on all the skin tones. If you love dark lipsticks then, it is a beautiful shade for you. It might not be an everyday wearable shade but, I love it. Also, it is a pigmented shade that needs only one or two swipes. It works so well.
Texture and Quality: I love to use liquid lipsticks and this one has a smooth, soft medium liquid texture that glides smoothly without any tugging. It doesn’t create any problem during application and it works so easily on lips. It feels very comfortable on the lips and never looks patchy or never feels sticky at all. It takes only a few minutes to dry out completely and once it dries out, it settles into a beautiful matte finish. It doesn’t transfer or smudge at all. It stays perfect on the lips. But, it has a tendency to dry out my lips and I need a lip balm before applying this lipstick. But, with a lip balm, it feels so nice and doesn’t feel dry.
Staying Power: The staying power of this lipstick is over 8 to 9 hours. It is smudge-proof and transferproof. It looks perfect throughout the day. It does not flake which is very good. It also survives lunch but, after a heavy oily lunch, it fades aways slightly.
It does settle into fine lines too. But, I find it is very hard to remove the stain from the lips. You need an oil-based makeup remover to remove it properly. I used my Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Remover and it takes a few seconds to remove it. It does not leave any stain behind. Overall, it is a very affordable liquid lipstick that performs well. This is one of my favourite dark lipstick shades and it looks lovely on my tanned skin.
