Pixi by Petra MatteLast Liquid Lip Review

Hello Guys! I went Target-ing a couple of days ago with one specific mission in mind, to take a look at some Pixi Beauty products. Guess what, there were a lot of stuff I liked and I was really confused as to which product I should buy.

 

I’ve heard a lot of great things about Pixi beauty products and judging from what I saw in Target, I felt like I didn’t wanna leave. I enjoyed gazing at the sheer amount of pastel green tubes, compacts, containers, and bottles in the Pixi beauty aisle, which is a refreshing take compared to some of the ultra-glossy and saturated beauty packaging nowadays. I really wanted to take home their Highlight & Contour Palette (Strobe & Sculpt) but I also couldn’t take my eyes off their MatteLast Liquid Lip ($14). In the end, I bought three of them.

Here are the swatches:

Pastel PetalBeige Nude. Slightly too nude for me, but still wearable for that edgy look, especially if you dramatize your eye makeup. This is a great shade if you have a fair to light skin complexion.

Really RoseRosy Brown. I love this perfect blend of muted rose and brown. The rose is almost like a coral-brick that looks really good on any skin tone.

Evening RoseMauve Brown. Another well-crafted shade that looks one or two shade darker than the Really Rose. This really makes for a beautiful pout.

The packaging is solid and well-done, except for the brush applicator that seems a little too soft for me. I find that I prefer a firm and sturdy brush applicator for any liquid lipsticks even the mattes, because it makes it easier for me to define or line the edge of my lips.

Other than that brush applicator that could do some improvements, this MatteLast Liquid Lip is almost perfect. It settles like a true matte liquid lipstick and it’s not too drying. It is transfer-proof and really long lasting. It also smells like a fruity bubblegum. I also find it to be comforting on the lips and really lightweight. On top of that, it’s even well-pigmented, and even though there were only 5 shades released, the colors are universally flattering. My only regret is not buying them all.

Bottom line, the Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip is a really good and well-done matte liquid lipstick. It is comparable to a lot of fan-favorite matte liquid lipsticks out there but with an affordable price tag. All the shades are gorgeous and they really look good on everyone’s lips.

 

Now, I can’t wait for my next Target escapade. Aren’t you?

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.

 

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis Nude Edition

 

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?
