My Experience with Sugar Suede Secret Matte Lip Colour Tartan Tangerine:

Packaging: The packaging of this product is similar to “Smudge Me Not” liquid lipsticks, the only difference is that Suede Secret lipsticks are sleeker comparatively. This liquid lipstick comes in a quirky cardboard packaging with the signature Sugar Cosmetics graphics and prints. The lip colour comes housed in a square-shaped, frosted, plastic tube. The tube of the lipstick has a regular screw-on black cap that closes properly in place. The shade name has been mentioned on the base of the tube and also on the outer cardboard box.  The applicator of the lipstick comes attached with the black cap. The shape of the applicator is apt for liquid lipstick application. It is doe-foot shaped and helps to cover the lips well without any unevenness. Overall, I find the packaging sturdy and quite attractive.

Color: Sugar Suede Secret Matte Lip Colour Silk Sangria is a beautiful magenta based purple shade which looks really flattering on all skin tones. It is a good amalgamation of pink and purple, looks really unique on lips. It’s another great color to choose from this range.

Pigmentation and Finish: This lipstick is intensely pigmented and only 1-2 swipes are needed to get full and opaque coverage on the lips. There is no significant shimmer or sheen in this lipstick. The color payoff is really nice. On my lips, I apply two coats to even out the edges and get an even look. It hides lip pigmentation smartly. If your lips are heavily pigmented, you might need multiple swipes for fuller coverage. Fragrance wise, it has a very faint, candy-like fragrance, which is not too bothersome. The fragrance lingers for some time after which it gradually fades away.

Texture: The texture is smooth, very creamy, and the lipstick spreads evenly on the lips without any tug or pull. It has a medium thick, mousse type of texture and the formulation is superb. The lipstick sets to a complete matte finish, but the matte finish does not feel too drying, it feels velvety matte. If you are tired of those overly drying matte lipsticks for which you have use a lip balm underneath, it’s high time you give this range a try. Matte plus lip nourishment both come hand in hand with this lipstick.

It takes about 1-2 minutes for lip colour to dry down completely, so this is not a quick-drying lipstick. Avoid touching your lips during this time to prevent transfer. This lipstick is easy to work with and gives a flawless finish upon application. It does not feel patchy or sticky on the lips. Also, the formula is lightweight and feels quite comfortable. I know this lipstick is a bit on the expensive side with respect to the price point, but keeping the quality, color and texture, it delivers and the price is totally worth it. The formulation is buildable and adjusts well to layering. It does not crumble and does not enhance the fine lines of the lips. This lip colour is smudge proof and waterproof. Once it dries down completely, it is completely transfer proof as well.

This lipstick does not dry out your lips. Still, if you are looking for that extra nourishment, you can prep and moisturise your lips, but I do not follow this step. This lipstick is perfect for those who want matte effect but at the same time need some creaminess on the lips.

Staying Power: The staying power of this liquid lipstick is not very long, it stays for about 5 to 6 hours. It can survive normal meals, but with oily meals, the formula breaks down from the centre of the lips. In that case, you would need complete reapplication. Staying power wise, I expected more, and it has disappointment me a little.

Coming to the removal process, it’s quite easy compared to taking down Smudge Me Not liquid lipsticks.

Overall, I am quite impressed with the quality of this lipstick and I love the color so much.
