I haven’t reviewed an eyeliner here for a while now, and the reason is that I don’t like to open too many eyeliners at a time lest they dry out before I can use them up. If you are new to this blog then let me tell you that I am a fan of matte black eyeliners that stay on all day and am constantly on the hunt for new ones. This quest recently lead me to the Sugar Cosmetics I Warned You So Double Matte Eye Liner, and here is a review of this product for all of you.
I finally have my hands on the newest baby on the block that every beauty blogger is talking about – the Sugar All Set To Go Translucent Powder! While I am not much of a powder person, I was feeling the need for a powder to blot out the shiny areas of my face towards the middle of the day, and the launch of this translucent powder seemed like divine intervention. So without much ado, here is a breakdown of all the features of this product.
The Sugar All Set To Go Translucent Powder is an extremely finely milled talc that is completely colourless. It can be used for setting the entire face makeup, as well as for blotting or baking purposes. I personally prefer it more for setting my makeup or blotting any shiny patches on my skin. The powder comes with a puff applicator that is suitable for blotting purposes but I feel that you will need a brush if you wish to bake or set your makeup with this product. The packaging is also extremely sturdy, with a flip lid that clicks into place and has a mirror too. This sturdy packaging is really useful for a loose powder because it ensures that the powder doesn’t spill all over your makeup bag.
The powder dispensing mechanism is your typical sieve-like arrangement with a powder compartment at the bottom that dispenses the powder through the holes. Be careful with the amount of powder you use though, a little goes a long way and you need to work with a tiny amount of product to prevent looking white. If you use the right amount of product, it leaves your makeup looking matte and provides a creaseless, smooth, airbrushed finish. Unfortunately, the product does give a small amount of flashback, so be a little wary if you are going out at night and will be clicking pictures. Also, be careful not to spill or inhale the powder because that is definitely not good for you.
Overall, this is a decent loose translucent powder and I absolutely adore its packaging when compared to the sloppy packaging of some of the other translucent powders that I have tried. The price point of INR 599 is not the most affordable but you can grab it during one of the many offers that Sugar keeps running on its website. If you are a powder lover then it is worth giving this powder a shot and if you are someone who has just started experimenting with loose powders then this may be a nice product to begin with!
Sugar Cosmetics recently launched 10 new shades in their Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick range and I HAD to buy at least one of them because it is my favorite liquid lipstick formula. While the original shades included more of reds and pinks, the new shades are all about muted nudes, browns and mauves – basically, every lip color that is in trend these days. I have already reviewed the formula of the Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks in a previous post (click here to read) but to summarize, it is ultra matte, intensely pigmented, completely transfer proof, and super long-lasting (unless you eat some really oily food). I went for the shade Greige Rage (11) this time because I wanted something that would go with a lot of different outfits and looks, and I was not disappointed.
Greige Rage is a deep rosy/pinkish brown that would look amazing on all Indian skin tones. It is a dark nude shade that provides the oomph factor to any daytime look while being dark enough to look stunning with a smokey eye for the night. The color looks slightly darker in the packaging than on the lips so make sure to check the swatches before you make your purchase. The formula sets in a matter of seconds and stays budge proof all day long, making it a fuss-free nude for the hectic days. Here is a picture of me sporting the shade with a soft brown eye look that is perfect for the day and night.
The Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks are priced at INR 499 each and the amazing points system on the Sugar website makes them even more affordable. If you are a fan of intense pigmentation and excellent longevity then these liquid lipsticks are tailor-made for you, provided you don’t mind super matte formulations. Also, the wide range of shades makes sure that everybody will find a color they love. So, what are you waiting for? Click this link and get your hands on one of these beauties now!
