The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes® Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick-Review


If you are obsessed with liquid Lipsticks, raise your hand! I have been in search of the perfect liquid lipstick for quite some time and I think I have finally found my answer, in terms of quality and color range.

The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes® Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick retails for 17$ on their website for a full size bottle. Now that can be quite pricy if you are on a budget and are ordering online and are not sure what color will suit you. For that they have come up with the perfect answer, the Meet Matte Hughes® Set of 6 Mini Long-Lasting Liquid Lipsticks!!!

The mini kit retails for 29$ on their website. I know that isn’t exactly cheap but you get to try six of their most fabulous shades, which go all the way from nude to red!! I was able to get it for PKR Rs.2600 from a Facebook beauty page (Beauty Point, Karachi) due to the Balm’s recent 50% off sale. And trust me this formula is worth trying!!

The lipsticks are quite small, but even if you wear a color every day, it will last you at least a month or even more. The mini kit includes the shades CHARMING, SINCERE, COMMITTED, DOTTING, DEDICATED AND LOYAL. Now the description of the colors would be according to how they turned out on my lips, and my lips are pretty dark compared to my over all wheatish complexion.

CHARMING is a muted brown with a tint of purple, makes me feel like I am wearing Kylie Jenner’s go-to Lipcolor. SINCERE is the most perfect nude I have ever seen on me! COMMITTED is a baby pink color and committed + charming= my new fav lip color these days. DOTTING washes me out but it is a very pretty light coral color. DEDICATED is a strong purple with an undertone of pink and LOYAL is the most gorgeous bright red.

They surely aren’t kidding about the long lasting part, because these lipsticks do last all day!! I have been wearing them to office for a few days now; I apply it around 9am and take it off around 7pm. During this time I have breakfast, Lunch and a few cups of tea and the lipstick is still on at the end of the day. It does fade during the course of the day, but it works for me even without any touch ups. And the best part is it does not crack!! I have been faithfully using the NYX Soft Matte Lip creams and NYX Liquid Sued Lipsticks for a few years but the only complain I have is that they crack up in the inner side of my lips.

Verdict: Must Must Must try!! I would highly recommend to get the mini kit as you can try out all the shades and decide for yourself which one works well for you. All the shades go on very smoothly, except DOTTING as it gets streaky. The pigmentation is really good and I can see they thoroughly cover the darkness of my lips. With these liquid lipsticks less is definitely more and they will last through all your meals. Plus they have a really nice peppermint smell!
