Are metallic lips passe? I certainly hope not! Even though I am not a huge fan of the metallic lipsticks that are too over the top and wash most people out, I have recently bought a beautiful metallic deep pink from the Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick Range and passe or not, I am in love with this lippie! Read on to find out more 🙂
The Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick in the shade 36 – Pink Clink is a deep mauvish pink with golden micro-shimmer running through it that imparts it a rose gold sheen. When I am indoors, it almost looks like a matte deep mauve on my lips but when it catches the light it gains another dimension due to the metallic sheen that also makes the lips look fuller. The shade is more suitable for the evening and would look better on medium to deep skin tones. However, there are some more metallic shades available in the range so there is something for every skin tone.
Formulawise, this product is similar to the regular Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks from Sugar. The thing about the Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick Formula is that you either love it or you hate it. It is quite drying on the lips but lasts really long, and is completely transfer proof unless you eat something oily. I personally love this formula but many people find it uncomfortable and observe crumbling on the inner side of the lips after a few hours. If you are used to wearing long wear liquid lipsticks then I think you should be good, provided that you exfoliate your lips and wear a lip balm under the lipstick.
Overall, I really love this liquid lipstick because of the unique shade and the long-wearing formula, and I can’t really complain about the price point of INR 549 when the brand is always running discounts and an excellent rewards program on their website. Do give it a shot if muted metallic shades are your jam!
