Back in August I reviewed the first four Huda Beauty Liquid Mattes that I picked up (review!) and I was pretty impressed. Although the four shades I had were a little inconsistent in the application and wear, overall they are one of the best matte lip formulas I have tried in terms of comfort and wear time.
I then picked up a further three and when I asked on my blog if you would like to see those too, there was a resounding yes. So finally I am here with swatches of the three that I picked up-Muse, Trophy Wife and Bombshell.
My thoughts on the formula stay pretty much the same-they're very lightweight, comfortable and not particularly drying for a liquid matte. But, I am starting to question if me + liquid matte formulas is a thing I want to continue. A couple of times when I was wearing these I caught sight of my reflection and felt the matte lip was very ageing on me. I don't feel this so much about matte lipstick formulas but with matte liquid lipsticks, I find they do seem to accentuate every lip line and I feel like maybe this is a trend I am now over.
Muse has a lilac-y grey undertone to it and I am not 100% sure this is a tone I suit. I feel like it makes me look rather washed out and tired. This is one of the most popular shades in the range given it's 'Kylie Jenner'-esque vibes but I'm way too old to even pretend to rock a Kylie Jenner look.
Trophy Wife is the shade I like the most but looks the harshest on me in terms of pulling at every line on my lips. I feel like this one really aged me even though I loved the rosy pink tone to it.
Bombshell is a shade that looks different on everyone. If I swatch it, it looks really dark brown toned but on my lips it looks quite peachy. This is the shade that wore the worst on me-I paired it with the Bombshell Lip Contour (review!) and I found that the liner lasted far longer than the liquid lipstick so I was left with a very 80's looking darker lip line.
I feel like I might end up putting these in my next blog sale-I want to keep hold of the shades Cheerleader and Heartbreaker from my first post and I definitely love the Lip Contours but I feel I just won't reach for these enough to justify holding on to them.
What's your take on matte liquid lipsticks?
