Hey there guys!
Today I'm reviewing the must-have lipstick that everyone wants to get their hands on - Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick
Just a quick summary of Huda Beauty if you don't know already. So Huda Kattan is possibly the biggest Beauty Blogger on the scene right now and has managed to build an empire from her popularity on social media. No idea when she came onto the BB scene but its crazy how much of a following she has. Her constant retweets and mentions to show appreciation for other MUAs/hairstylists/nail artists work has allowed the Huda brand to become the biggest beauty hub on social media. '#Hudabeauty' is a staple hashtag people use when they're posting anything thats associated with beauty on Instagram - imagine that?!
Anyways, moving on she first launched her Huda Lashes which took the world by storm and everyone was after them. Her second addition to her cosmetic line are her Liquid Matte Lipsticks. They're exclusively sold at Harrods so i made a trip to see what the fuss was all about. There was a huge queue for this tiny stand so it already got me curious!
I decided to buy a red shade as I never go for reds ever! I always resort to nudes so this time I was going to step out my comfort zone. I chose this gorgeous unusual shade called 'Cheerleader'. I find it really hard to explain the type of red it is and I don't think the picture does it justice but its a pretty plummy but kinda pinky colour?!
So, I put it to the test
+ When I applied it to my lips it was like silk. It just glided on with just one coat and didn't have to go over it a 2/3 times to build the colour. So thats already a thumbs up!
+ I thought I'd have to use a lip liner to define my lips but there was honestly no need. Looked perfect without it.
+ The applicator is shaped in a way that it makes it even easier to glide onto my lips.
+ Yes its a little pricey, but hey I think she gets away with it because its so popular right now. So really, £18 isn't that bad for a must-have beauty product of 2016.
- When I applied the lipstick on my hand, I found it really difficult to take off so I was like woah this must have so much staying-power that I wouldn't have to worry about reapplying throughout the day. However, as soon as I had something to eat, the lipstick in middle of my lips had disappeared but everything else stayed in tact. So the only criticism I am going to express is that the staying-power of this product wasn't as much as I thought it would be. Just a bowl of pasta wiped a lot of it off so unless you're planning to just drink something through a straw, you will probably have to reapply again after that.
