HudaBeautyLiquidMatteLipstickBombshellSwatch.jpg

As someone who prefers a glossy and hydrated pout, I have never understood the obsession with liquid lipsticks… until I tried the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade ‘Bombshell’. This product can be purchased at Sephora or from the Huda Beauty website for $20.

~Color~

This product is available in 25 different shades, and I really appreciate that all of them were created to be flattering for all skin tones. The shade that I ended up purchasing is ‘Bombshell’, which is described as a ‘subtle pinkish nude’. This medium, peachy-pink nude with warm, terra-cotta undertones is my ideal everyday neutral because it enhances my skin tone and complements so many of my makeup looks.

~Packaging~

With a frosted matte glass tube and velvety soft doe-foot applicator, the packaging of this lip product looks and feels very luxurious. What’s inside matters the most, but this does come in a very cute box displaying Huda’s lips. This has a delicious true vanilla scent, which is quite strong at first, but fades the more it dries.

~Formula & Quality~

As for the formula, this liquid lipstick initially has a surprisingly wet and thin consistency, making it very easy to apply in a controlled manner without having to worry about making any mistakes. With only one swipe, the amount of pigmentation is so intense and beautiful, which makes me believe that I will be able to use this product over and over again before I ever have to think about running out. Unlike other lip products, I never feel the need keep dipping the applicator back into the tube or to apply more than one layer in order to achieve a full coverage effect. Although this formula dries down to a completely matte finish within about 30 seconds, it does feel a little tacky afterwards. I know a lot of people may not like this slightly sticky feeling, but I do not mind it because it prevents it from cracking or emphasising any dryness on the lips. It is almost completely transfer-proof and is extremely long-lasting. I can wear this for over four hours of talking, eating, and drinking without any fading, which I think is very impressiv e. When it does fade later in the day, it does so evenly, avoiding a ring of color along the edge of the mouth or a build-up in the center. Overall, this incredible, high quality formula feels comfortable and truly light-weight rather than overly drying.

I have never enjoyed using a traditional liquid lipstick before, so the fact that I love this one so much really speaks to the quality of the formula and the brand. If you have some money to spend and are looking for a product that offers color payoff and longevity without drying your lips out, then look no further than this Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick.

XOXO,
Makena

  1. […] that is actually matte, I always reach for my beloved Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick (review here). It dries down to a matte finish, does not transfer, lasts for ages, and never feels drying. I am […]

  2. […] Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in ‘Bombshell’: When writing this post, the first product that came to my mind this lip product that I recently bought myself! The light-weight formula is non-drying, long-wearing, and completely matte, but the peachy tan is the real reason why my heart seems to skip a beat whenever I swipe it on my lips. I love wearing this by itself, underneath a clear gloss, or for a more natural look, I like to dab a little of this in the center of ,y lips and then blend it outwards with my finger tip to create soft, gradiant edges.
