This year I got a chance to visit India and, meet my near and dear ones after 5 years. Being a makeup addict, I could not miss a chance to buy a few Indian makeup products and review them on my blog.
So today we are going to talk about Sugar Cosmetics which is an Indian Brand and their lipsticks ‘Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick’ which is a true matte and their Satin Lipsticks.
I see my Indian girls buzzing up for Sugar Cosmetic products these days. Especially, their liquid lipstick line ‘Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick’.
But honestly, when I tried their liquid lipstick in the store. I felt like it was ripping up my skin and was so hard. My lips literally got shrunk within 15 min after application and I could not even talk properly. OMG! Without wasting a second, I returned it, right after I purchased it. So, girls, if you have chapped lips like mine, please stay away unless you want to buy them and try them.
It was so dehydrated and hard on my lips. It started to burn and could not stand it for more than 15 min. It might be transfer proof but honestly, Sugar cosmetics should work hard on liquid matte formulas if they really want to cover all lips types. Strictly not for me.
I don’t know how my Indian fellows are getting along with it. For me, Big No for Sugar Cosmetics ‘Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick’ MRP Rs. 499 (INR).
On the other hand, SUGAR Cosmetic’s Satin Lipstick range is workable. I like the formula and feel of the Mettle Satin Lipstick. The company describes it as a Mettle Satin Lipstick – 02 Elizabeth (Rosy Cheeks Pink). I would say it is a peachy brownish-pink semi-matte finish.
Being said that, if I compare it with the Satin lipstick “Brave” or Matte lipstick “Mehr” by MAC Cosmetics that is super comfy on the lips. I find 02 Elizabeth by SUGAR Cosmetics is a bit drying and susceptible to patchy lips. That I see as the biggest drawback.
However, maintaining healthy lips can be an aid to pull off the lip game.
As far as talking about this lipstick, it might be great for others. But I believe even this formula is not enough condensed and hydrating to provide a creamy satin texture. But far better than ‘Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick’ liquid lipstick.
People prone to dry or chapped lips throughout the year can buy this lipstick if they exfoliate their lips regularly . Its longevity remains good for 5-6 hrs comfortably. That’s quite great for Indian weather considering the climate, and non-AC public transportation facility (if I talk about my town).
The company describes it as a high-quality lipstick with a lot of pigment that gives you an opaque satin finish in just one swipe. The Sugar Mettle Satin Lipstick has a creamy texture and is long-lasting and waterproof.
MRP is Rs. 999 (INR) and I think it is a little pricey compared to Maybelline or Revlon lipsticks for their Fan favorite matte or satin formulas that comes under Rs. 500 (INR) easily.
My final thoughts, I like this lipstick but not as much as I love Maybelline or Revlon lipstick for their outstanding formulas. I truly think that other drugstore brands are really ahead and sit on the top chain for their creamy matte formulas considering their liquid lipsticks or regular bullet lipsticks.
I have not tried any other products from Sugar Cosmetics so not sure if they are worth the hype in India.
So, girls if you are a happy customer of Sugar Cosmetics for their matte liquid lipsticks and satin lipsticks. I think I have to agree to disagree with you in approving their matte liquid lipsticks. However, their satin formula is good and workable with off-and-on touch-ups.
Finally, not a fan of their matte liquid lipstick since I have dry lips. At the same time, I might think to buy their satin lipstick at a discounted price as I am not willing to pay full price.
So, friends, this was my honest review of the above-mentioned lipsticks by Sugar Cosmetics.
Please let me know what you think about this post.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
