I’ve been super into lipsticks lately. With the Fall season upon us, I’ve been obsessing over lips. Nude lips, pink lips, berry lips. Just all the lips. While my lipstick collection has grown to be pretty substantial, I decided that it was time for a bit of a refresh. I purged all the old, clumpy and chunky lipsticks that have been sitting in my lipstick display for what seems like forever (don’t judge me!) and trashed some of the lipsticks that I just don’t find myself reaching for. A sad process, but a necessary one.
The silver lining in this situation is that decluttering has left me with room in my collection to buy some new fresh lipsticks. I’ve been lusting after the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks for quite a while. I’ve heard and read that the formula and pigmentation
of these lipsticks are top notch. I’ve swatched and played with a few of them before, but always thought the shades were too brown or grey for my skin tone. However, the last time I was at Sephora, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the shades had expanded to include a few pink and red shades. So I bit the bullet and decided to finally try them out for myself.
These lipsticks are described as “a highly comfortable, long wearing liquid lipstick that dries matte with intense color pay-off and transfer-proof properties”. Each lipstick costs $26 CAD and contains 0.04 oz. of product. They are cruelty-free and are formulated without parabens or gluten. The packaging is one of my favourites – a super sleek, frosted plastic tube with a matte black lid. Really sexy!
I picked up the colours Sugar Mama, Crush and Trophy Wife. Sugar Mama is my literal Fall lipstick fantasy come to life and has quickly become one of my favourites to wear! It’s a little darker and more brownish, orangey than my natural lip colour, which is perfect for the Fall. Crush is a a peachy nude shade that gives me a ‘my lips but better’ look. Trophy Wife is a berry shade with a slight brown undertone that gives me the perfect punch of colour for an evening look or a dressier day at work.
In terms of formula, these lipsticks are some of the best I have ever tried. They are extremely pigmented and go on the lips evenly and smoothly with one application. The formula is super light and doesn’t feel goopy or thick on the lips. The lasting power is fantastic! I can easily get through an entire work day with no flaking, smearing or caking. Best of all, my lips are not left feeling dry or cracked. As an added bonus, these lipsticks also have a delicious frosted cupcake smell.
You guys, the hype is so true with these lipsticks and I am kicking myself for not purchasing them sooner. These have quickly become some of my favourite lipsticks to wear. They are easy and reliable, which are qualities I look for in any beauty product. I can definitely see myself purchasing more of these in the future.
