This post was long overdue. I was meaning to do the review for long but was caught up with my professional commitments but now it’s up. I wanted to try the much raved about huda beauty liquid matte lipsticks and undoubtedly the shade ‘trophy wife’ is the bestseller so i picked it up from the nykaa store. So Lets read about it further:

My experience with the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a transparent glass tube with a doe-foot applicator. It is a long sleek tube. the doe-foot applicator is good and picks up the right amount of product. The mouth of the bottle has a suction which prevents excess product coming out of the tube.
The shade i picked up is ‘trophy wife’. It is the bestseller shade. I have seen the instagram going gaga over this shade. It is a rosy brown color which on application appears to be rosy pink but after it sets it tends to appear little dark. This shade will suit every skin tone as it is very subtle, good for both office wear and for parties.
The texture is very thin and lightweight. it glides on smoothly without any tugging and pulling. It dries down fast, so you need to be careful in applying it as it may get difficult to clean the edges. It does not have any sticky feeling to it. i have dry lips but this does not make them drier. It is comfortable to wear, though i do hydrate my lips and apply lip balm before applying this lipstick.
The pigmentation is fabulous. In one swipe, you get the full color pay off. It applies evenly without being streaky. It does not set into fine lines.
I expected this lipstick to stay for long. But it is a big disappointment. It stays for around 3-4 hours after which it disappears even with minimal eating/drinking. It fades away evenly without leaving any stain. Though, i prefer lipsticks to leave behind a little stain. once on the lips, it transfers slightly, so it is not 100% transfer- proof.
Pros of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick:
- comfortable to wear
- intense pigmentation
- dries down fast
- no sticky feeling
- beautiful color
Cons of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick:
- not transfer-proof
- not long lasting
Will ‘theblushcorner’ recommend it?
No, it is expensive and does not live up to the hype. At this price, i would expect a lipstick to at least stay for 7-8 hours and to not transfer. There are better long lasting lipsticks available at half the price.
see you all soon 🙂
