SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick Review – 15 Blush Rush

As you see from the title, today’s blog post is on SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick. Couple of months back when I posted a story on Instagram asking my followers which is their favourite long lasting matte lipstick? A lot replied to my story with one recommendation and that is, the ‘Sugar cosmetics smudge me not liquid lipstick’. So, yeah. I decided to try one out myself to see if this liquid lipstick makes it to my favourite matte lipstick collection too. 🙂

Talking about the lipstick shade, It’s beautiful deep blush pink with a tint of a brown undertone, and I’d bet that it would look great on all skin tones. This gorgeous lipstick shade would complement both neutral and smokey eye makeup looks.

How to apply SUGAR cosmetic Lipstick-

For precise application, apply the original SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick to your bottom lip first and then tend to your upper lip. Since the formula is highly pigmented, we suggest applying the colour to the bottom lip first, pressing your lips together and then filling in your Cupid’s bow. Purse your lips together to enhance shine.

Texture of the liquid lipstick- Sugar matte lipstick

Now moving on to the texture and lasting power of sugar cosmetics smudge me not liquid lipstick… The texture of the lipstick is creamy, comes with an applicator so the application process is effortless.Since the lip cream dries super fast, try not to wait too long while applying.  Once the lipstick dries completely on the lips, it feels sort of heavy and dry  on lips.However, prepping your lips with a good amount of lip balm, before the application can take away that feeling. 

The lipstick stays up to 5-6 hours long.If you happen to eat (Oily food especially)  or drink the lipstick wears off easily. Post meal, I remember having the lipstick only in the center of cupid’s bow and around the corner. Touching up on the same makes the lipstick look tacky on the lip. 

Since it’s a matte lipstick, taking it off needs a good amount of oil-based makeup remover.  I prefer using coconut oil to remove the lipstick. All you need to do is take a few drops of coconut oil on a cotton pad and wipe your lipstick. 

My take on the sugar cosmetics smudge me not liquid lipstick – 15 Blush Rush

Honestly, the shade is gorgeous.  Sugar cosmetics smudge me not lipstick is kiss-proof and transfer-proof. Pigmentation of the lipstick is commendable. My only concern was that the lipstick tends to disappear in the centre of the lips after a full meal.

SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick Review
Before & After

Since a touch up over top makes it tacky, carrying a makeup remover wipe in your handbag can be handy when you are planning to wear it for long hours out. If I had to compare Sugar smudge me not lipstick to Maybelline liquid matte lipstick, I feel the latter is comparatively more long-lasting and comfortable to wear for a long day out.

Simple ways to reduce plastic use in your daily life

If you are someone who carries your own shopping bag to the grocery store or someone who constantly looks for a sustainable switch to reduce plastic usage, “Hi five!” I always look for alternate ways to reduce plastic use in my daily life, and here are some switches I made in order to  reduce plastic footprint.

 reduce plastic use

Carrying a tote bag for shopping to reduce plastic waste

While it’s convenient to ask for a plastic bag at the grocery store or anytime I am out shopping, my inner conscience always tells me that it’s not a wise choice. I don’t like to see plastic bags ending up in the garbage bin, therefore I make sure I carry one extra foldable grocery bag with me all the time. You can either DIY a tote bag using an old t-shirt or buy one. I have a tote bag from Yoaatma , not only does it have a cool print, but it is also spacious enough. 

You can find some good cloth/ jute tote bags at a reasonable price on Amazon too.

Carrying a water bottle to reduce plastic water bottles usage

If you know me personally, you know how much I hate buying water in plastic bottles especially when I am out. On days when I know I am going to be for hours, I carry my own water bottle. I have a half-liter glass bottle that easily fits inside my handbag, you can even go for a stainless steel bottle. Switching from a plastic bottle to a glass/steel bottle is a wise choice in terms of health, but it is also the right move to make for the environment. This is again one of the simplest ways you can work toward the reduction of plastic pollution. 

Switching to wooden toothbrush 

I recently switched to a wooden toothbrush and I can’t express how much I love it. The one I have here is from Manusatva, a community that aims to bring behavioral change in society, nature by adapting sustainable practices & passes on a message that “Humanity still exists”. 

Using stainless steel straws 

One time use plastic straws at the restaurants or stalls can easily be replaced with steel straws if you make a decision to carry one with you all the time. You can easily buy stainless steel straws in India online. Most of these steel straws come with a cleaning brush so you don’t have to worry about cleaning it. In order to carry it all the time with you in your bag, go for stainless steel straws with a case. This way you can store your steel straw after using it. 

Choosing beauty products wisely

Be it haircare or skincare products, looking for non-plastic packaging beauty products or switching it with bottle packaging can make a huge difference. Imagine how many beauty products you buy in a year and the amount of plastic pollution that it causes. Recycled plastic packaging is still fine.

On that note, I got my hands on Sadhev skin care products. All their  products are cruelty free, free of sulphates paraben, phalates, synthetic colours and artificial fragrances.

Moving on to the product reviews of some of the Sadhev skin care products that I bought during the sale: Face Gel, Sadhev Rose Water & Sadhev Sunscreen SPF 30. 

Sadhev Aloe Vera Gel with Saffron and Kumkumadi Thailam 

Gel moisturizers or lightweight moisturizers tend to work great on oily skin. It moisturizes the skin without making it feel sticky or oily. When it comes to moisturizer, I always go for lightweight oil free moisturizer. I’d say that my hunt for a good gel moisturizer for oily and acne prone skin ends with Sadhev face gel 🙂 

The texture of the face gel is light and gets easily absorbed. Can’t deny the fact that it has a beautiful scent (like a desert with saffron garnish) and you can literally see saffron threads inside the gel. I like to apply twice a day;  morning and night (before going to bed). My skin feels hydrated throughout the day, and does not look oily.

 Well, it also works great as a makeup base and primer.

Sadhev Ayurvedic Sunscreen SPF 30

I used to be that person who would only use sunscreen when I step out, but not anymore ever since I learned the importance of a good sunscreen. You might be thinking “Should I use sunscreen at home? Well, even while you are working from home, you are still exposed to sunlight and sun rays, so investing in a safe ingredient sunscreen is a wise decision, your skin will thank you. Sadhev sunscreen has SPF 30 and glides super easy on the skin. The texture of the product is in between creamy and moose. It gives a very matte finish look and doesn’t make the skin oily at all.

Sadhev Natural Rose Water Toner

When it comes to facial toner for oily skin, I feel rose water works best (for my oily skin at least). The benefits of rose water is another reason to fall in love with this magic extract.The anti-inflammatory properties of rose water are known to reduce acne and control oily skin. 

I like rose water spray for my face as it’s super convenient and can be used as a facial mist as well as makeup setting spray. Sadhev Rose water comes in a glass bottle with a spray nozzle. The dark tinted bottle packaging of the product gives it a luxurious feel.
