My Experience with Sugar Cosmetics 02 Brink of Pink Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick:

Packaging: Love the way Sugar cosmetic products come packed in graphic boxes. It looks like something from Prisma app. The liquid lipstick comes in a small clear bottle with a black cap. The applicator is suspended from the cap. It has a good applicator and helps in easy application, but it picks up a little more product than actually desired. The name and the number of the shade is mentioned on the bottle itself. Now the name of the shade is also mentioned on the outer box.

Shade: They have around 10 shades in this range and I find the shades very close to each other and mostly in the house of reds and browns. “Brink of Pink” as the name suggests, is a very sober and a decent pink shade. It is not one of those “over the top” bright shades – a daily wearable shade that would suit all skin tones. I would call it a muted pink with blue undertones. It also has slight mauvish tint to it if you layer. It is an absolute matte shade with no glitter pr glossiness at all.

Texture and Pigmentation:  “Smudge me not” liquid lipsticks are very close to being liquid in texture. They are not watery liquid but liquid enough for easy application. It looks wet and bright during application but then settles to a complete matte finish once it is dry. You may notice that it looks brighter when freshly applied. It does not tug or pull actually while application but I wish it was a little more smooth. Now, these do dry up quickly and so one has to be very careful while applying as any mistake committed would be a pain to rectify. It actually gives a powdery finish and look.

The pigmentation of Brink of Pink is super duper strong and just a little product is required to cover the lips. One application is enough. Unlike Brazen raisin I did not find this shade streaky in its application. Although the liquid lipstick feels a little sticky while application, the sticky feeling will not last long. Now since it dries so quickly you cannot rub your lips together like we generally do with others lipsticks as it makes it patchier. Layering does not feel heavy but the entire lipstick experience on my lips felt a bit strange like a foreign material being deposited on my lips. Also they make my lips super dry. So I did apply a lip balm beneath which helped me to some extent. Do not ever forget to scrub your lips if your going to use these liquid lipsticks. It will cling on the rough patches and make it even more evident. It settles into the fine lines of the lips.

Lasting Power: These smudge me not liquid lipsticks have taken their name way too seriously. They would just not smudge come what may. They stay put all day long! I tried using water-based makeup remover and it did not budge. I had to use oil-based one and even with that, it took some time to get rid of the stain. If you have heavy, oily food, then it will start to get lighter from the middle of the lips.
