Matte Love With Huda Beauty Liquid Matte

I don't think my fascination with matte liquid lipstick will fade away anytime soon. In fact, I'm still and very much into the craze for quite a while now. Since beauty brands all over the world keep on coming up with new one, I just can't help myself from buying more and more... I heard a lot of great things about Huda Beauty Liquid Matte and of course I feels the rising need to get my hands on this sought after lippies immediately!

Just like every other highly rave beauty products, this is not available for purchase in Malaysia unfortunately so I have to order mine from Cult Beauty. The delivery take forever and to be honest, I don't have a lot of patience when it comes to online shopping. To make it even worst, I saw people posting their hot looks with the liquid lipsticks everywhere on Instagram, I really wish Sephora will bring them here =(

In case you're wondering what's the hype is all about, have you seen the founder of Huda Beauty, Huda Kattan herself? She's a beauty guru who looks just like Kim Kardashian (minus the drama obviously) She's gorgeous, talented and successful businesswomen so it's only natural for me to want to have a little piece of her, you know? Okay, it's more like a girl crush thingy but how can I not fall for her beauty and charm, her Youtube video rocks!

Speaking of the liquid lipstick itself, I do have a very high expectation. I tried tons of matte liquid lipsticks before so it's kind of hard to please me... According to their official site, the Liquid Matte is non-drying, featherweight, densely pigmented with a stunning, suedette finish. The silky formula applies like a lipgloss then dries in moments, cloaking your pout with a smooth, kiss-resistant veil of vibrant colors that won't smudge, flake or transfer.

Infused with antioxidants and an exclusive complex to help maintain lips hydration, the lightweight liquid lipstick promise to beautify your lips for hours without compromising comfort. Comes in 20 different shades from timeless nudes, feminine pinks, deep reds and 90's brown, Huda Beauty Liquid Matte can be used alone or combined to create your own unique style. You can also paired it with Huda Beuty Lip Contour to set off your look.

Let's talk about the packaging first, I have nothing but love for the sexy lips box it comes with. It's pretty to look at and insta-worthy too. The frosted glass tube is lovely as well, it's travel friendly and display the shades nicely. The wand is not exactly my favourite but I think I can live with that. Another thing that I like about the Liquid Matte is their vanilla cupcake scents, it's not as overwhelming as I expected them to be but sadly disappear within minutes.

In terms of consistency, it's slightly runnier than the other liquid lipsticks that I owned and takes longer to dry down to the matte finish. It can be quite feathery if you didn't apply it carefully but surprising layered shades on top of another with ease. True as it claims, it's very comfortable to wear and didn't leave my lips feeling dry or flaky after every wear. The staying power is pretty awesome too, shades remains transfer free for a good 4 to 6 hours on me.

Let's move on to the shades, shall we? I initially purchased 3 shades; Material Girl, Video Star and Trophy Wife. I always have a thing for fuschia and have quite a number of similar shades in my collection. Unfortunately, I can't find any in Huda Beauty Liquid Matte line up which make me settled for Video Star, a hot pink shade instead. Since I love the formulation so much, I decided to get another two; Heartbreaker and Bombshell as well.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte - Bombshell
5ml [USD27.00]
★★★

Bombshell is describes as subtle pinkish nude which in another word making it universally appealing for all skin tones. It didn't wash me out like some nude shades I've tried and quite pigmented too. One swipe is enough to give you an opaque coverage that last for hours. Huda Beauty Liquid Matte range seems to incline towards nude and earthy shades but believe me, Bombshell is definitely one of the shades that you should purchase and re-purchase!

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte - Trophy Wife
5ml [USD27.00]
★★★

Trophy Wife, the suggestive name ironically match the shade perfectly. It's define as rose wood, but in my opinion, it's a little bit on the mauve side. Still, it's a lovely color to have. I love wearing this to work. It gave me the strong women vibes without looking threatening to the mankind kind of feeling, lol I think it will looks more flattering on deep skin tone though but hey, this Huda Beauty best selling shade will looks good on anybody =)

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte - Material Girl
5ml [USD27.00]
★★

Material Girl on the other hand is describe as a fierce plum shade with a vampy touch. I never had a purple lipstick before so this one really caught my attention and the name screams Madonna to me! Unfortunately, this is not as pigmented as the rest of the Liquid Matte that I bought and needs more than 1 layer to get the opacity that I want. It's also the hardest shade to remove and leave a visible purple stain even after double cleansing, sigh~

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte - Heartbreaker
5ml [USD27.00]
★★★


Heartbreaker is label as man eating pinkish red on the site, I don't see any pinkish hint in the color though but it's really a killing shade to have! Highly pigmented and stays forever, this one without a doubt is another one of my favorite lipstick. It makes me looks bitchy in a good way and give me the perfect red lips looks that I always aiming for. If you still can't find the red lipstick that suit you the most, Heartbreaker Liquid Matte might be the one for you!

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte - Video Star
5ml [USD27.00]
★★★

The last one I have here is Video Star which is define as shout out pink red. I stay away from shocking pink for as long as I can remember, it's a very difficult shade to pull off unless you have the confidence and the attitude to nail it. The lack of pink shades in the collection making me tempted to Video Star and honestly, I'm starting to like it. Of course I didn't have the guts to wear it just like that. I mixed it up with Trophy Wife to make it less striking, lol

Top > Bottom swatches : Bombshell, Trophy Wife, Material Girl, Heartbreaker, Video Star

Despite the unpleasant experience I had with Material Girl, I still think Huda Beauty Liquid Matte is one of the best in the market. The only explanation I can think of is perhaps I got the bad batch for that particular shade because the rest of them are amazing! It's non drying, stay for hours, very pigmented, smells nice and looks lovely too. The only thing that I dislike is obviously their lack of fuschia shades in the range and the fact that Huda Beauty is not available in Sephora Malaysia outlet. Other than that, it's a great addition to have especially if you're into matte liquid lipstick. For more details, do visit their official sites and until then, have a great week ahead lovelies, adieu~
