Sugar Cosmetics Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick - 08 Wine And Shine (Sangria) Review, Swatches, Fotd, LOTD and EOTD

Hello everyone,
As you can see, I am currently in “Sugar Cosmetics” phase; my Facebook and Instagram feeds are filled with pictures of Sugar babies and I am having a ball with them right now. Today’s review is on one of their most loved shade from one of their most loved range of liquid lipsticks, it is ‘Wine and Shine’ from their ‘Smudge me not’ range of liquid lipsticks. It seems I am probably the last person on earth to lay my hands and review this product; but better to be late, than never.

 So lets get into the nitty-gritty details …

What Sugar Cosmetics says:-
“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 & date-proof - this is a matte lipstick that is guaranteed to last longer than your longest day. Available in 20 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?
A hat-tip to the glamour and luxury of the 20s Gatsby era - raise a toast to Wine and Shine if you fancy a deep violet berry shade that is a vintage classic and an instant hit!”

A clear tube through which you can see the product inside which is further housed in a lipstick bullet shaped channel ( I hope I made it clear :P ). The cap is a matte black with a doe-foot applicator attached inside. Lightweight, compact and travel-friendly. The outer box is fun, quirky and love at first sight.

A deep violet berry shade which looks utter sexy, uber glamorous and oh so classy. Now I know why people are going gaga over this shade. This is such a gorgeous shade, an absolute head turner and I have lost count how many times people have asked me about it, even strangers. You can rock this in the morning as well as in the night, totally a rock star.

Texture and Finish:-
The texture is very soft and glides on lips like a dream. Consistency is neither too creamy, nor too runny. It settles within seconds and the finish is completely powdery matte. Now, if your lips are not well-exfoliated or moisturized, you might find this lip color going patchy after settling. Your lips have to be WELL PREPPED. I have very dry, almost flaky lips throughout the year and this is what I do. I apply a good coat of lip balm almost 10-15 minutes prior to applying the shade. Then using a wet cotton or cloth, I wipe it off. Again I apply a thick coat of petroleum jelly on lips, wait for a few seconds and then go on with the lip color on top of the petroleum jelly. This makes the matte finish a bit more comfortable and my lips don’t feel stretchy or desert like. Once it settles, it becomes totally smudge-proof and transfer proof.

Colour Payoff and Staying Powder:-
Insanely pigmented; it goes gorgeously opaque in single swipe. It stays for around 6-7 hours on me with snacks and drinks in between, but it doesn’t survive full meal. You have to watch out for that and remember that you have to reapply thereafter. I would recommend removing it and then applying fresh to avoid patchiness and messiness.

How I use it:-
Obviously as a lip cream. I used it even as an eye shadow and liquid eye liner. It worked great as a liquid eye liner, but using it as an eye shadow was pain, just because it settles in seconds, much before I could pick up my brush and start blending. I had to act like Quicksilver (Pietro Maximoff). Here is the result.

Would I recommend this to others?
If you are looking for a statement shade of lip color other than usual reds and hot pinks then this is for you.
If you are totally comfortable in carrying powdery matte finishes, then this is for you.
If you are not feeling well and want something to perk you and your face up in seconds, then this is for you.
If you want a rocking shade of lip color, without spending a bomb, then this is for you.
If you want to make head turns, then this is for you.
Need any more recommendations?

So, Final Thoughts?
It was a love at first swipe for me and I am still head over heels in love with it. The texture was a little turn-off at first, but once I started using it over petroleum jelly, there was no looking back. Breathtaking shade, beautiful texture, sophisticate matte finish, insanely pigmented, stays pretty long and decently priced. I am too impressed.
