I am a pretty big fan of Sugar Cosmetics! It is one of the brands that have “happily surprised” me always! Earlier, I have reviewed MATTE AS HELL CRAYON LIPSTICK – 01 Scarlett O’Hara, MATTE AS HELL CRAYON LIPSTICK – 03 Poison Ivy and SUGAR IT’S A- POUT TIME! VIVID LIPSTICK – CORALINE IN THE CITY. I’ve been blown away by the quality of their products so far. I was almost jumping with joy as soon as I came to know that Sugar Cosmetics launched their 10 irresistible liquid lipsticks. All the shades are so tempting that it was so difficult to pick one. Anyhow (Dil pe patthar rakh ke) 😉 I chose a vibrant orange-coral shade, that’s 06 Tangerine Queen from this range. Now, Let’s get into the review:

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 Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 06 Tangerine Queen:
The Lipstick comes is a beautiful matte finished outer carton. All the vital details are mentioned on it. Coming to the lipstick tube, it comes in a rectangular and absolutely transparent tube with a matte black cap. The black cap has the “Sugar” logo on it and the shade name, the number are also mentioned at the bottom of the tube. It’s quite sturdy which makes it quite travel-friendly. When you see the tube, you will notice a shape of a lipstick bullet at the end of the transparent tube which is quite impressive!. I soo loved the packaging! Simple yet elegant!
There is a sponge applicator attached to the cap. The length of the applicator stick is so impeccable for a better grip. It works pretty well to apply the product to the lips, especially on the corners of your lips. The wand is bit small but gives you more control and perfect application. As per my experience, you may have to slope at least thrice to cover the entire lips. To avoid accidental clown mouth, do not forget to line your lips first and then apply the lipstick.
Shade, Formula, and Pigmentation
SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 06 Tangerine Queen is a very beautiful, vibrant orange shade. Surely, this is a super fun summer color, and perfect for an evening party or a bold look. I think the shade is flattering on all Indian skin tones. It is such a vibrant lip color that may get you endless compliments…TRUST ME!
Coming to the formula, it is a watery formula with amazing intense pigmentation that glides on smoothly. It has no taste but yes has a subtle vanilla scent. It dries down to an ultra-matte, so if your favorites are creamy matte or satin finish lipsticks then you may find it super drying. The formula takes no long (Approx 1 to 2 minutes) to dry so you have less time to work with the color and shape your lips. Hence, you have to work little fast because once it dries, it doesn’t budge at all, thus try to get an even application in one go, rather than trying to layer it up else it may lead to some patchiness. It feels drying on the lips initially but then it disappears after a few minutes and feels weightless too. With a product like this, good lip prep is always essential.
Make sure your lips are exfoliated; smooth and moisturized properly else it may accentuate the flakiness and dryness even more. You may apply a thick layer of your favorite lip balm before you start your makeup and remove it once you are ready then apply your lipstick.
It wears about 8 – 10 hours on me, and last reallyyyyyy well through eating and drinking. The lipstick doesn’t transfer whatsoever. It doesn’t budge too until you eat something oily and after that, it starts to wear off in the center of the lips like other matte lipsticks that you can definitely retouch. Besides that, no feathering, fading or smudging at all!!! That means you need an oil-based cleanser to take them off. Currently, I am using Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, you may even use coconut oil or any baby oil to remove it.
