Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

Can we all agree that Huda Beauty is a beauty mogul? I follow her and her family on snapchat and they are always cracking me up. The UK has the royal family, America has the Kardashians, and the UAE has the Kattans.

As soon as I tried my recently purchased matte liquid lipsticks from the Huda Beauty collection, I knew I had to write a review. Her false eyelashes are some of my favorites including “Farah” (ironically) and “Samantha.” I had to splurge on her brand new line of liquid lipsticks, especially since the Kylie Lip Kits were beginning to wear down my olfactory senses.

The first advantage of these liquid lipsticks is that she doesn’t use red 40, a chemical dye which is literally made from crushed insects and is present in numerous lipsticks and cosmetics in the market. A second advantage is that there are no parabens or phthalates in the formula. Parabens and phthalates are endocrine disrupters which will alter your hormone levels and have also unfortunately been discovered in abundance in tumor biopsies of patients with breast cancer.  Instead, she utilizes natural ingredients such as vanilla [vanillin], coffee seed extract [coffea arabica] and olea europaea fruit oil [a form of olive oil] to enhance the scent of the lipsticks, making it a superior aroma in comparison to the Kylie mattes. I personally believe the coffee seed extract aids in plumping your lips throughout the day, so there is no need to over line them.

My cat wanted in too!

I purchased bombshell, venus, trophy wife, flirt and spice girl. In my opinion, bombshell and venus are a perfect everyday hue (I am an NC25-NC30 in SFF). I liked how trophy wife and flirt looked on my skin tone, however I might wait until fall to really rock spice girl because of its earthy tones.

Finished look

Finished look, applied bombshell.

The colors don’t last as long as the Kylie mattes, but I do find Kylie LKs overly dry. Huda’s formula has more moisturizing ingredients within it. And even though I did need to reapply after having dinner, I really didn’t mind to.

xo ?
