Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis Review + Swatches

huda beauty matte liquid lipsticks review

Happy Thursday! I’ve got another lip product review and swatches for you all. Any Huda Beauty fanatics out there? Hey guys! Every time I go to Sephora, I always see Huda’s beauty products, especially her Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks (0.17 oz: $20). Several times I wanted to try her lippies but I just couldn’t bring myself to it.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis Swatches

When her Liquid Matte Lipsticks first came out, there weren’t many good reviews about them. A lot of people mentioned that they’re streaky and watery, which is also what I noticed when I first swatched them on my arm at Sephora. They were really watery and I had my doubts whether they’re gonna settle into true matte finish lipsticks or not, especially because most matte liquid lipsticks in the market are usually creamy. But I dig the shades though, I thought they were really wearable.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw that a couple of Liquid Matte Minis were released and they came out in four different editions. The Pink Edition, The Red Edition, Brown Edition and this Nude Edition ($33) which we’re now reviewing. I thought it was a good idea to try their minis and I love these sizes because they’re great for any jet-setting activities.

I was torn between the Nude Edition and the Pink Edition, but eventually, I settled into the Nude Edition and I couldn’t be any happier. These Liquid Matte Minis are so cute. They’re about 3 inches tall and each tube has a sturdy brush applicator, not to mention a robust frosted thick plastic packaging. The lippies smell like chocolate milkshake and they do feel very watery at the beginning. But! don’t be discouraged, these Minis will definitely dry down to a comfortable matte finish. So comfortable that you won’t even know you’re wearing any lipstick at all. They don’t even settle much into the lip’s fine lines, which is perfect because then they don’t dry the lips, like most matte liquid lipsticks that can feel really drying after a couple of hours.

 

Here’s some lip action for ya, LOLz.

They might feel slightly sticky at the beginning but they didn’t transfer anywhere, even after eating, drinking, working out or chitchatting. I love the shades of the Nude Edition because most of them are really wearable.

VenusDeep Taupe Brown. A nice warm nude shade that I can actually wear without making me look very washed-out or ghastly. Great for everyday running errands kind of lip color.

BombshellSubtle Pinkish Nude. Just the right kind of warm muted pink which gives a natural pinkish pop on the lips.

FlirtCheeky Brown. I’m not usually a fan of grayish-brown shades, but this is one of the few that I can tolerate to wearing even during the day.

TrendsetterBrown Nude. I love this shade a lot. It has a bit of a terracotta undertone, like a dark alternative of Venus that’s great for medium skin tones.

Bottom line, I’m actually impressed at these Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis and I highly recommend them. I love their comforting feel on the lips, I like the choice of shades, I enjoyed the scent and I like the matte effect that it had on my lips. They’re also priced reasonably and I think overall, they are great quality matte liquid lipsticks.

 

What do you think of these? Have you tried any of them?

Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon Review

 

Hey all! Another lip product of the moment here. A couple of months ago, a sample of their Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon was included in one of my beauty purchases. It was in the shade Glacé. Somehow, for some reason, I misplaced it but when it magically popped up on my vanity table, I knew I had to give it its much-needed attention. To my surprise, I was blown away by the quality of the said the said lip product. First of all, I really love its texture. It gives a soft matte finish, non-drying and it feels really light on the lips. It’s very much like a lipstick, but velvety. It has a perfect complementing matte effect that doesn’t really settle into the lips’ fine lines, unlike most matte liquid lipsticks. Second, because of its “pen type” applicator, the application is smooth, easy and accurate. Thirdly, it has the most amazing scent of a lip product I’ve ever tried. The hint of orange is really interesting on this particular lip product.

One thing that struck me the most about the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon (0.05 oz, $24) is how beautiful the Glacé shade is. It’s a gorgeous dusty mauve that really complemented my lips’ natural tones. It looks like something I could wear every day and it looks my kind of shade. Because of that, I couldn’t help but take note to drop by at the Bite Beauty aisle for more shades of the Matte Crème Lip Crayons for my next Sephora visit.

When I finally had a chance to check out the other colors of the Matte Crème Lip Crayons, I realize that they’re almost all good. Lots of very pretty everyday shades, lots of muted colors, and wearable pinks and browns. It was so tempting to buy them all. But I couldn’t get crazy, so, I decided on two starters, the Pastille shade and the Amaretto.

Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon

  • PastilleDusty Mauve. A shade that’s very similar to Glacé but more on the mauve-purple/pink side. The shade is very pretty and will complement any skin tone. It’s muted for daily wear I’d say that this is the next best thing especially for those who wanted a bit more color from Glacé.
  • AmarettoPeachy Nude. I’m normally not crazy for nudes, but this particular nude is a yes for me. It’s peachy warm and it’ll look great on anybody with a light to medium skin tone. It’s even great a perfect neutral nude for darker tones. This particular nude hue is very versatile for sure.

  • Glacé – I’m really gogo gaga about this shade. I still have my original sample size that I’ve been using constantly lately, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be purchasing it in its regular size soon. This is a beautiful shade of dusty mauve rose that I tend to prefer in most of my lipstick shade. It also kinda reminds me of YSL #66 Bois de Rose which is my signature lip shade.

About the packaging, it seems like every Bite Beauty products feel really comforting to the touch. I love their velvety textured containers and tubes, so the Matte Crème Lip Crayons are no different at all. Also, its packaging allows for no-mess application and there’s definitely no need to sharpen the product at all.

Verdict, these are definitely one of the best lip product finds for me lately since it has everything I’d want in a lippy; the ease of application, great pigments, lightweight comfortable textures, non-drying matte finish, and colors to last for 4-6 hours with delicious non-boring scent. What more could you ask for?

 

The Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon is available only in Sephora.com
