There is a sponge applicator attached to the cap. The length of the applicator stick is so perfect for a better grip. The wand is bit small but picks enough product for a perfect application without wasting a drop of it. It defines your lips effortlessly even on the corners of your lips. As suggested earlier, always line your lips first and then apply your liquid lipstick to avoid accidental clown mouth.

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT IN WINE AND SHINE LIQUID LIPSTICK – REVIEW AND SWATCHES

SUGAR Cosmetics Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 08 Wine and Shine is a beautiful deep violet berry shade that looks extremely beautiful on the lips. It’s a vibrant shade with a hint of fuchsia. Must say, it’s a unique shade, which is extremely opaque and gives full coverage. Definitely, this is a superb color for summer and as well as for winter that will suit on all skin tones without any doubt!

Texture & Pigmentation:

img_4963

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT IN WINE AND SHINE LIQUID LIPSTICK – REVIEW AND SWATCHES

SUGAR Cosmetics Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 08 Wine and Shine has a medium and smooth texture, which glides on effortlessly without any tugging, It dries down approx. in 1 to 2 minutes into a BEAUTIFUL super matte lipstick. It doesn’t smudge or transfer. Once it dries it doesn’t budge for anything like literally “ANYTHING”. Do not forget to prep your lips before applying any matte lipstick. Since the formula of this lipstick is a little drying, so make sure to apply a good lip balm before applying it. This lipstick is extremely pigmented. As it goes opaque in just one go thus do not layer it up much else it may lead to patchiness. As mentioned above use a lip liner to define your lips first then apply lipstick for perfection.

Staying Power:

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT IN WINE AND SHINE LIQUID LIPSTICK – REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Once it’s set, It doesn’t budge at all. It stays put on me approx 9 to 10+ hours! It stays on my lips through eating (light oily food) and drinking, Yes it survives incredibly well. The lipstick doesn’t smudge, transfer or fade at all!!!!!. It doesn’t budge until you eat something oily then it starts to wear off slightly in the center of the lips. Nevertheless, the pigmentation was superb after such long hours! The best part is that it does not flake or crumble. It fades off evenly leaving behind a lovely pink-purple tint. Since it has a stubborn tint thus removing it is a bit difficult, however, you can easily remove with oil-based cleanser or Johnson & Johnson baby oil/coconut oil.

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Hola Everyone!

🙂 🙂

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:

My Experience with SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 06 Tangerine Queen:

Packaging:

IMG_3523.PNG

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

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!

THE APPLICATOR:

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.

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

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.

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

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.

MAB Recommendation:

Overall, SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 06 Tangerine Queen is the shade that gives an absolutely rich and intense color payoff while providing full coverage. The quality of the product is super amazing and the wear time is absolutely fantastic (up to 10 hours) especially compared to high-end liquid lipsticks available in the market. I love how amazingly it brightens my face instantly. I am so keen to review another shade from this range in 08 Wine And Shine which I got in my February Fab Bag. I soooo loved it!! Trust me, these are the most pigmented liquid lipsticks I have used so far. If you are looking for an ultra matte, super long wearing lipstick then you are definitely going to love them. And above all, these come in such an affordable price tag of INR 499! Absolutely worth every single bit of penny!

So pair this vibrant orange-coral lip color with your favorite outfit and make a bold statement this season!..And Yes, do not forget to wear your confidence along !!!! :* :*

OMG, I am loving SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks range! Highly recommended!!!!

All the L’Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipsticks come in an attractive black and gold packaging. The bullet enclosed in a golden bullet case, which makes it look completely luxurious. There is a little window on it which makes it easy to identify the shade. Since Pure Amaranthe is Gong Li’s choice and thus autographed by her! ❤ :* :* The bullet shape is so good to apply in the corners lips with ease. Anyway, but I still love applying lipsticks with a lipstick brush.

L’OREAL COLLECTIONS STAR PURE REDS LIPSTICK IN PURE AMARANTHE - REVIEW

L’Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipstick in Pure Amaranthe-Review

Pure Amaranthe has an absolutely creamy texture that settles down to a matte finish. Being a creamy matte lipstick it doesn’t dry out the lips. Coming to the color, Pure Amaranthe is a magnificent deep fuchsia pink shade with a red undertone that I am deeply in love with. I think this lipstick will flatter all skin tones especially fair to medium. In terms of Pigmentation, this one is super pigmented but not as Pure Garnet. These two lipstick have a different texture altogether as Pure Garnet is insanely pigmented more matte plus it leaves a thick layer on your lips. On the other hand, Pure Amaranthe is a bit thin in texture and does leave a thin layer on the lips hence you need at least 2 swipes to build up the color. It transfers a bit immediately after the application yet it stays put for the whole day once its set. It lasts for almost 6 to 7 hours and survives lite snacks to heavy meals and drinks quite easily.

This is how it looks on me: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Pros of L’Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipstick in Pure Amaranthe:

  • Gorgeous & Rich Color.
  • Does not transfer much once set.
  • Intense pigmentation.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipstick in Pure Amaranthe:

  • The only problem with all L’Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipsticks is that their lipstick bullets break very easily at the base. This is my 3rd lipstick from this range and again bullet just broke after first use. It was like I was getting a heart attack for the 3rd time! :/ Earlier, I had the same experience with Pure Garnet and Pure Rouge too!

Rating: 4.75/5

MAB recommendation:

Pure Amaranthe is an amazing blend of bright pink and red (read is as more pink) which is effortlessly flattering on most of the Indian skin tones. Besides, It is an all year round shade must say! It delivers absolutely beautiful bright and rich color that lasts minimum for 6 hours that too without budging and feathering. After that, it leaves behind a beautiful pinkish stain on lips.

Pamper Your Skin With Biotique This Winter

Hey loves !

Hope you all are enjoying this cold winter!

Skin Dryness is a big concern during winter as moisture in the skin goes down and skin becomes too much dry which further leads to many skin problems such as chapped skin, dull skin, and wrinkled skin! Yes, as I have already explained in my last article on Winter Skin Care that it’s pretty common to get wrinkles on your skin during winter. Thus it’s important to change your beauty regimen for winter.

If you are a regular reader of my blog then you must be knowing that I am the biggest fan of Biotique’s Products! It’s one of my favorite Brands that manufacture wide range of Ayurvedic products. In fact, they have an amazing range of winter care products as well. Today, I am going to talk about some Biotique’s products, which are supposed to help eliminate many winter skin related problems. These products are:

My Experience Bio Winter Cherry Rejuvenating Body Nourisher

The Bio Winter Cherry Rejuvenating Body Nourisher comes exactly in the same packaging as Biotique Bio Honey Cream Rejuvenating Body Wash. It comes in slightly pink color. It has a thick consistency thus you need to squeeze the bottle a bit for it to come out. I wish if it would have come with a dispenser like Bio Papaya Exfoliating Face Wash comes in 300ml packaging. The texture is totally non-oily that spreads very well and gets absorbed easily into the skin.

Bio Winter Cherry Rejuvenating Body Nourisher

Bio Morning Nectar Lightening Lip Balm

My Experience with Bio Morning Nectar Lightening Lip Balm

The Bio Morning Nectar Lightening Lip Balm comes in a sleek stick form with a twist up mechanism. The stick has quite huge quantity in it. It has a safety seal on its cap. There is a label on the stick wherein all the vital information are mentioned. It’s a transparent (non-tinted) balm that means it doesn’t give any color to your lips. The consistency of this balm is quite creamy. The packaging is absolutely hygienic and convenient to use. It is mildly scented and has exactly the same fragrance as all the Bio Morning Nectar skin care products.

Bio Morning Nectar Lightening Lip Balm

It glides on the lips easily and It doesn’t feel heavy on the lips. The formula is quite hydrating that moisturize my lips instantly. It is perfect for any season as it aims to revitalize the lips. It Instantly soothes dry and chapped lips. The best part is that you can wear it under the lipstick too as it has SPF 30, hence it protects and nourishes your lips at the same time. I love using it so to be very honest, I use it at least thrice daily plus I make sure that I use it every night before I go to sleep. I have been using the lip balm for almost 3 weeks now and this lip balm turned out to be an excellent product ! It did help lighten my lips to some good extent. It worked for me after using it religiously almost 3 weeks so please don’t expect rosy lips kind of effect next morning. For better results do not forget to exfoliate your lips as well. Finally, the product has shown results are satisfying. It surely does what it claims plus easy on the pocket. I am in love with this product! A must have!

This Lips Crayon comes is a beautiful matte finished outer carton with all the vital product details on it. The lipstick comes in a black fat crayon with the base matching shade and black cap. The crayon also has the shade name and number printed on it. As it’s a crayon, it’s not retractable and needs sharpening. For sharpening, a black sharpener comes free along with the lip crayon. The sharpener has a sleek stick, which needs to be pulled out to clean the sharpener. I really liked this concept and the complete packaging. The crayon is extremely handy thus it absolutely travel-friendly as well.

SUGAR COSMETICS MATTE AS HELL LIP CRAYON – POISON IVY REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Poison Ivy is a highly pigmented wine color. It has an extremely soft and smooth texture, which settles in silky matte finish. It’s extremely light weighted but gives you excellent coverage. You need just 1 swipe to see its intensity. The super silky formula is not completely matte but slightly creamy therefore it doesn’t dry the lips out. Due to its creamy matte texture, it glides on beautifully. It transfers only slightly not much. To avoid that apply the lip crayon once, blot & reapply. Though you don’t need to use a lip liner with it but you may use it for more perfection. It lasts 5+ hours on me that too without any patchiness or re-application in between. Yayyy!!! 😊😊

NYX Matte Lipstick in Bloody Mary Swatches and Review

Hey Everyone! 🙂 How are you doing today?

NYX cosmetics is a makeup brand that’s been a staple for anyone obsessed with beauty. When it comes to the most versatile professional makeup & beauty products, you simply can’t ignore this brand! All its products are so innovative but still the company has kept its prices low. Before Nykaa, the NYX cosmetics were only available in Sephora stores in India. Though, some of NYX products are available on several shopping sites as well but then the authenticity of these products is an issue.

Earlier, I have used NYX, PUMP IT UP LIP PLUMPER in the shade of Pamela, which I bought from Sephora Store during my Singapore visit. I literally fell in love with it, I just adore how beautifully it used to make my lips fuller. And I got very excited, when I came to know that NYX cosmetics officially coming to India through Nykaa. Sadly, I could not order the NYX products saved in my Nykaa wish list. By the time I could access my Internet, mostly NYX product were out of stock! :/ Somehow I still, managed to buy 2 products from this brand, NYX Tinted Brow Mascara in the shade of Black and NYX Matte Lipstick in the shade of Bloody Mary. 🙂 ❤ ❤ So, today I am going to talk about NYX Matte Lipstick in Bloody Mary.

Product Description:

It comes sealed in a plastic black matte tube and the best part is you can actually see through the middle of them at the color inside. I really love this kind of packaging that actually gives you a better idea of what the lipstick color looks like. The tube contains, lipstick shade name, lipstick shade number, manufacturing details and the list of ingredients printed on it. There is sticker placed at the bottom of the tube wherein the shade name and number are mentioned. The packaging is fairly durable and travel friendly. It feels lightweight but not flimsy at all.

Bloody Mary is Blue-Toned Cranberry Red which is a beautiful and very bright pinkish-red color. I must say it has a good amount of pink. The color is definitely flattering for all Indian skin tones. I have a medium skin tone(NC-42) and It looks more pink than red on me. But, if you have fair skin with cool undertones then It may look more reddish than pink on you.

IMG_5406.PNG

NYX Matte Lipstick in Bloody Mary Swatches and Review

It has a very creamy texture which is extremely smooth to apply. This non-drying formula, settles into a creamy matte, which is very comfortable to wear and doesn’t leave any kind of patchiness behind. Coming to the pigmentation, just look at the swatches girls, it is absolutely pigmented and provides rich color in its first swipe. Oh my God it goes C-o-m-p-l-e-t-e-l-y opaque in single swipe!!!!!!!! This color just lasts really well and stays almost 6+ hours on me. The only thing bothers me is that it is somewhat transferable and can bleed a bit but nothing excessive. To avoid this, use it with lip liner.

Sexy Ombre Lips Tutorial

Heya Pretty Girls! Hope you had an amazing Valentine’ s Day! ❤ ❤ 

The Ombre lips are so popular these days hence I opted for an ombre lip this Valentine’s Day ! 😀 😀

Ombre is a French word for fade and Ombre lips are two or more lipstick colours or shades blended so that they fade into one another. It’s like contouring your lips that makes them look really big and fuller! OMG!!! The Ombre Lips look absolutely beautiful and outstanding!!!

You can wear this trend for any wedding party or “for special occasions ” Creating the ombre lip isn’t as difficult as you may think, it is really quite easy. All you need to create this look is two contrasting colours of lipstick or a dark shade of lip liner that also complement themselves.

There are many ways to do ombre lips and today I am sharing one of them. Follow the steps below to achieve the Ombre Lip look step by step with the help of Pictures. Enjoy. . .

What you would need:

  1. Black Eyeliner or any darker liner
  2. Lipstick of your choice
  3. Lipstick Brush
  4. Cotton Bud
  5. Foundation or Concealer
  6. Lip gloss (optional)

IMG_1098.PNG

STEP 1: Apply the concealer or foundation on your lips. This helps to prolong the lipstick and create a blank canvas for you to work with. I have used my MAC NC 42 Studio Fix Foundation.

To avoid feathering or bleeding, make sure your lips are properly exfoliated and moisturized before you apply concealer or foundation on your lips.

STEP 2: Get a black pencil liner (or any darker lip liner of your choice) to line your lip edges. You can also create an illusion of bigger lips using your liner. Here, I’ve used my Magneteyes Black Kajal Pencil from faces that is smudge free and my favorite too! 🙂

STEP 3: Now, apply your choice of Red Lipstick. I have used L’Oreal Paris Collection Star “Pure Rouge” (The shade of Freida Pinto). Can’t tell you how pigmented and beautiful Red it is!! ❤

STEP 4: Now Blend, blend and blend! Blend inwards with the help of lipstick brush until the black and red are blended well.

STEP 5: Now to help clean up around the lips and give them a clean edge, use a concealer/foundation with the help of a cotton bud. Because you created a good base with your concealer/foundation, it is much easier to clean up any mistakes you may have made. Instant line perfection and this really makes the lips pop ! Yayyyy! 😀 😀 ❤ ❤

And you are done… Sexy Ombre Lips!!!!!!!!!!! ❤ ❤ 

Optional Step : You can add some lip-gloss right in the middle of your lower lips for added shine. (I have totally skipped this step)

Additional Beauty Tips for Ombre Lips Look:

  • When you are applying lip liner or lipstick, chances are that in the beginning it might look a little messy, don’t be afraid the result will be spectacular !!
  • You can always play around with different colours and add some gloss for added shine.
  • While making a bold statement via the lips, make sure to keep the rest of your makeup mellowed down. After all, you would want more attention to be on your lips, am I right?
So get prepared to look super duper Sexy, confident, sassy, and every bit a glam babe!! Mwaaah

This is how I looked on this Valentine’s day with Sexy Ombre Lips

I absolutely love the packaging, beautifully wrapped up in classic black glossy lipstick shell with the bullet enclosed in a golden bullet case.

Cons of L’Oreal Collections Star Pure Reds Lipstick in Pure Garnet

  • The bullet tends to break because of its super smooth texture which is a big “Oh No”!
  • The color is so intense that you need makeup remover to remove it completely.
  • Looks patchy if you haven’t exfoliated your lips.
  • The price is a little on the higher side 

 

MAB Recommendation

This is the best color in entire collection of L’Oreal Star Pure Reds Lipsticks. It delivers Bold and Rich color that lasts for minimum 6 hours, and after that leaves a beautiful Pinkish-Purplish stain. I love how this gorgeous deep wine shade color instantly brightens up my face. This shade survives heavier meals and drinks quite easily.

I would definitely recommend L’Oreal Star Collection Reds Lipstick in Pure Garnet. It is an all year round shade must say! I am totally loving it. Since this L’Oreal Pure Garnet is a dupe of MAC Diva and the color and texture is just similar, and the price is also almost half of MAC so Now you have another reason to buy it. Don’t think much, just go and get one now!!
