THE BALM - Meet Matte Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks

by - 2:23 AM

Well hello Matte Hughes, I was very eager to meet you and now you are mine! My collection keeps getting better and the latest edition to my liquid lipstick collection is The Balm Meet Matte Hughes long lasting liquid lipsticks. Are they as good as many others I have tried or will I end up giving these away?

It is very hard to resist temptation when you are a makeup lover, some people call me a hoarder. Trust me, if I was a "Hoarder" I would not have any time to write blogs, I would simply live my life in a makeup shop instead, gobbling everything I can set my eyes own. Snapping back to reality, which hits you in the form of your bank account, I buy stuff bit by bit. There are times, like this one, when I am lucky enough to actually get items from my "wanted" list through the brands themselves. Thank god *The Balm, one of my favorite brands, is now officially distributing in Pakistan.

As Per BRAND:
"Introducing a truly loyal long-lasting liquid lipstick—Meet Matt(e) Hughes. With eight dreamy shades to choose from, you can take your pick from this hopelessly devoted collection. This long-wearing formula has a comfortable matte finish with no commitment issues. These matte vanilla mint liquid lipsticks are stuck on you without feeling clingy!"

The packaging, as always, is cheeky and quirky along with the name. The long lasting lipsticks are "Meet Matte Hughes" where you see Matte, the charming, ideal guy, smiling at a a girl (probably us (wink, wink). I have always been impressed with the fun lettering and imagery with a clean background of The Balm packaging. The quality of the outer box as well as the inner liquid tube is also good. The liquid lipstick is plastic but with a good finish and you can see the actual shade of the lipstick as well. I prefer this over the frosted ones because you cant tell the shade through frosted plastic.

I tested these lipsticks for over two weeks before writing this blog. In general I am happy with them. Meet Matte Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks come in 12 diverse shades with equally intriguing names which are actually adjectives for the qualities you seek in your mate (but rarely find?).
  1. Adoring (Merlot)
  2. Devoted (Bright Red)
  3. Trustworthy (Warm Nude)
  4. Sincere (Light Mauve)
  5. Committed (Pinky Nude)
  6. Doting (Nude Coral)
  7. Honest (Warm Coral)
  8. Chivalrous (Bright Pink)
  9. Sentimental (Warm Pink)
  10. Charming (Rich Mauve)
  11. Dedicated (Berry Red)
  12. Loyal (Deep Red)
As per my Experience:
  • a very liquidy formula, not thick
  • Feels lightweight
  • Very pigmented but the lighter shades may require two layers
  • Smells minty with a hint of vanilla and you even feel a subtle tingly feel on your lips during application which I like
  • Drys quickly though I would advise not to smack your lips as they can tend to get sticky before drying up
  • Easy to use doe shaped sponge applicator
  • Wear time lasted me between 6 to 9 hours which is good
  • Doesn't dry lips as much as Kylie Liquid lipstick, I found this formula better
  • Transfer resistant
  • All shades are extremely wearable and suit all skin tones
  • Easy to remove with makeup remover and even coconut oil

THE BALM - Meet Matte Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick - COMMITTED

A sweet nude shade with hints of pink and warm undertones. It has become a favorite as far as my very limited nude collection goes.
