All that madness about liquid matte lipsticks isn’t over yet! Whenever a brand launches a new range of liquid lipsticks, the makeupholics from around the world go gaga over it. Same thing happened when our beloved, SUGAR cosmetics launched their range of liquid matte lipsticks called “smudge me not“. Being a lipstick lover that I am, I became really excited to try these lippies out when they were first launched. I heard a lot of good things about them, but I didn’t believe that they are actually SMUDGEPROOF until I tried one of them by myself and got totally blown away with the formula!

My Take on Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – Rust Lust
Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick comes in a packaging that’s similar to Maybelline Velvet Matte lipstick. It’s small, sleek and really good for travel purpose. It has a doe foot applicator with rounded edge which kinda helps in the precise application of the lipstick, but I wish that it had pointed edge because that’d give more cleaner edges. Overall, the packaging is great for the price and I don’t have any complaints about it.
SUGAR is a brand that always launches lipsticks with an awesome shade range which suits each and every Indian skin tone. This time too, they have given us a variety of gorgeous shades with their liquid matte lipsticks. I chose this shade called “Rust Lust” because I badly wanted to add a rusty shade in my lipstick collection. Sugar describes this shade as “Terracotta Red” which is a very apt description for it! 😝 I think it leans more towards the terracotta/rusty/burnt brown side. They have another rustic red shade in this collection which is called Drop Dead Red so if you like reds more than browns, you can check out that one. ☺
I believe that the formula must be same across all the shades. Since it’s a liquid matte lipstick, it’s bound to be a little drying on the lips. But thankfully, it’s not sticky at all! If you have extremely dry lips like mine, then you might want to exfoliate your lips beforehand and apply a good amount of lip balm. On me, it starts to crumble and crack from the inner corners of my lips if I don’t use a lip balm underneath it.
The staying power of this lipstick is pretty awesome! It can easily stay for 6 hours with light meals and drinks. It doesn’t transfer to cups/glasses which is a HUGE plus for me because I hate it when I drink something at a restaurant or at someone else’s house and my lipstick transfers to the cup/glass/spoon, it’s so embarrassing! 😝 Here is the swatch picture –
This is only ONE swipe of the lipstick and you can see how pigmented it is! You just need to apply a single coat of this lipstick and you will be good to go for the next 6-7 hours, without any touch ups! ☺

- Like all other liquid lipsticks, this one is also a bit drying. It won’t be a problem if you use a lip balm! 🙂
