Matte lipsticks especially the liquid matte ones will always stay my favorite no matter what. That awesome feeling when these insanely pigmented liquid lipsticks set in to give a perfect pout is so satisfying. I am here with one of my favorite liquid lipsticks from the Sugar Cosmetics Smudge Me Not range. The shade I am going to review is, Wine and Shine (08) which is a beautiful matte sangria shade.

What Is It Made Of?

My Take On Sugar Cosmetics Smudge Me Not – 08 Wine and Shine

The Smudge Me Not range of liquid lipsticks was launched few months back and I already knew I was buying it for sure. Somehow, I got lucky and got it with the Fabbag few months back. I badly wanted to try how deep and bold colors look on me and this was the perfect shade I could have asked for. The packaging looks classy and the lipstick comes inside a transparent tube. The applicator is nice and holds enough pigment for covering the entire lips at one go.

After applying it, I waited for it to set for a few seconds. To my surprise, it spread so evenly on my lips hiding the crease and pigmentation. It did not transfer at all despite drinking water and having a light meal. But, it does smudge with oily food (just like every makeup does!). So do not expect to eat Amritsari kulchas without smudging your lipstick! 😛 However, I love the pigment, staying power, and the finish. I am truly impressed! 🙂
