I am experimenting a lot with unconventional color these days (along with usual ones, of course). So, when I saw this vibrant violet sort of color, I knew I had to grab this one. This is one of the 10 new shades that Sugar Cosmetics has included in their “Smudge Me Not” liquid lipstick range. Read on to know more details on this lipstick.
If you’ve ever lusted for a “one-coat wonder” product for your lips, your search ends here. Get a full-blooded burst of pigment with just a single swipe of the Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick that will stay the day and right up till the night! Wine, coffee and date-proof – this is a matte lipstick that is guaranteed to last longer than your longest day. Available in 30 stunning shades that will make it difficult to choose – the question is, are you ready to commit to a lipstick that is built to last? (You will get more details regarding ingredients, application technique and benefits in their website).
449 INR for 4.5 ml. I think the price is very reasonable when compared to other liquid lipstick variants available in the market (maybe they offer more in quantity), but then again, I love smaller variants when it comes to makeup products. Firstly, you can check and see if you like the product and color. Secondly, you can actually use it up before it expires.

My Experience with Sugar Cosmetics Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick Vivid Orchid:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in the usual Sugar packaging – the lipstick tube comes inside a funky, colorful paper carton. I love the unique packaging of this product. While most liquid lipsticks come in long, tube packaging, this is a small tube that has square edges. The product is in a clear tube. The matte black cap has the applicator attached to it which helps with precise application; however, if you do not have a defined lip line (that is my problem and I am not an expert with drawing), you should use a lip liner first. The tiny product can be easily carried in your purse and is definitely cute.
Shade and Pigmentation: The color is described as “it’s finally here – the perfect pop to the picture-perfect pucker! Get out there and rule the roost with “Vivid Orchid” as you champion this bright bold hue of violet like a boss.” This is indeed a vibrant, bold violet shade with blue undertones. It brightens up the face and looks great on every skin tone. You can wear it with simple eye makeup or even a bold one if you want to. You need some confidence to rock a shade like this, but once you learn to do it, you will be the unique one in your group of friends. You can wear it for day brunches or night parties. It has a festive, party vibe in it and I am obsessed with it at this moment. It is definitely very pigmented and great for covering pigmented lips. However, I feel this one is a little less pigmented compared to the other two I have and needs 2 coats to be completely opaque.
Texture and Quality: The texture is not thick or creamy like the creamy liquid lipstick. It is not too thin either. It is something “in-between,” which glides smoothly on the lips without any tug or pull. It does not look patchy if you layer it on. However, if you do that, give it some time to dry after the first layer is applied. After that, go with the next layer of product. It dries down pretty fast to a beautiful matte finish that does not smudge or transfer. However, your lips may feel a little dry after some time. This obviously won’t break or look patchy on the lips. However, due to the dryness, your fine lines may become prominent. You must exfoliate your lips well before applying the product. Also, do prep your lips with a lip primer or lip balm before application. I had a bit of chapped lips and that showed up in the swatch. You may also apply a gloss or transparent lip balm over it, if necessary, but it won’t feel uncomfortable on your lips ever.
Staying Power: It stays on my lips for over 8 hours without any smudging or transferring. It looks perfect throughout the day and does not even fade if you do not opt for a heavy, oily meal. It fades slightly with heavy meal, but it survives water and other drinks. You should never make the mistake of removing this with water-based product. Use a good oil-based cleanser to remove it from the lips and it goes away without leaving any stain. Moisturize your lips well after you remove the product to avoid any feeling of dryness.
Overall, this is a very unique shade and I am crazily in love with this one. I will use this often and finish this up.
