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.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis Review + Swatches

 

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?

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour Review

I have too many matte liquid lipsticks! – said No One. 🙂  Well, that is so true, indeed. Matte liquid lipsticks are everywhere! Seems like every brands are making their very own version of matte liquid lipsticks. Hmm, what do you know, Chanel didn’t wanna get left behind, so, enter my current matte liquid lipstick favorite, the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour. I’m so excited to review this because I’m so curious to find out whether a high end matte liquid lipstick would outshine the current and popular mid-brands of matte liquid lipsticks, or not.

Much to my surprise, when I was picking up the shades, I was having a bit of a hard time because most of the shades don’t seem to match well with my skin tone. I have an NC3-35 skin tone and a Beige 30 in most Chanel foundations for the record. Most of the shades in this Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colours are on the bright reds, which I’m not really a fan of because my skin tends to complement with the vampy or dark muted hues.

Eventually, I settled with these two colors, the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte in 150 Luxuriant and 154 Experimente. These are almost the darkest shades of all the Rouge Allure Ink Matte Lip Colour. With respect to their formulations, they’re definitely matte in texture and they dry fast like most matte liquid lipsticks. They almost don’t have any discerning scent and they are extremely pigmented. I get about a good 5 to 6 hours of wear on these, and they also leave a slight stain on my outer lips thereafter. The brush applicator feels strong and robust, though the overall packaging is quite small compared to most matte liquid lipsticks. I like that it’s made of thick hard glass, but not heavy. Overall, the packaging is nice, simple yet luxurious.

150 Luxuriant: A slightly bright and deep fuchsia with bluish undertone. It’s extremely pigmented and super creamy. The formula takes about a full minute to dry and is very staining, but can be easily cleaned.

154 Experimente: The darkest of all the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte shades, and my most favorite as well. It’s a dark vampy red which dries immediately upon application and is also crazily pigmented and has a creamy texture. It tends to get clumpy if you apply too much, so go easy on this. It’s a beautiful shade for medium to dark skin tones.

As you can see in the photo above, the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour’s packaging is quite tiny. For its price, I wish it came with a bigger tube which means more product. However, these lippies would fit very well in your purse, and they look really luxurious. Compared to most matte liquid lipsticks that are so popular out there, I think these ones are a good contender. They are true to what they are supposed to be, a matte liquid lipstick, but they’re not drying like most matte liquid lipsticks, and at the same time,  they’re well pigmented and long lasting.

 

If you’re interested with these lippies, you can buy it HERE.

 

 

Thanks for your time guys, until next time…
