Huda Beauty The Nude Collection Liquid Matte

Decided to get this when heard people say that Huda Beauty has one of the best liquid lipstick out there. It dries down matte pretty fast. Really pigmented and the wand is nice. I decided to get the nude collection, cause I’m just safe that way. So the mini is really nice, cost me about £27.50 minus tax. It just nice applying this. It feels good. One coat is all you need. However, this feels kind of tacky on the lips. It’s slightly sticky, so that doesn’t feel drying. Rubbing your lips together is not a nice feeling. But I still enjoy applying this on. So, 4 different nude shade for every skin tone/ occasion. 

Venus is a nude nude. It’s slightly warm, but looks good on. It’s a kind of colour, you will pick out in a crayon if you want a colour in a tan shade. I like it enough, cause usually this kind of shade can wash me out, surprisingly this doesn’t. 

Trendsetter is slightly in the brick nude. It is more earthy, more red undertone. you cant really see the red, but it’s there underneath. On the lips, it is just brown. The oil in the tube easily separated for this one, but nothing that could be fix. It looks natural on me. 

Flirt is a deep brown nude. It is so dark when swatched. Like a tree trunk kind of brown. In my lips, has a slight greyish vibe. But still looks quite alright. With this, makeup is needed, if not I’ll look quite dead. 

Bombshell is a nude with a pink undertone. It is the kind of shade that I usually pick up. This is just more nude on the lips. It’s nice. I like it. Usually those I tried is either too nude or too pink. This just strike a nice balance in between. 

Overall, I like all of these shades. In their own way, they are different than the ones I already have. I can look at my collection closer, but it is just different on the lips. The best part about this is probably the packaging. It’s a frosty glass like tube that makes it super fancy. Applying this is wonderful. While Colour Pop is way cheaper, it just doesn’t feel luxurious as Huda. I really think it’s the packaging. Or maybe the fact that Huda’s are more oily so it feels nicer. 

I wouldn’t buy them again or the other shades unless there is really a shade that is very unique. For the price, there are others out there that is much better. And I think a matte lipstick is probably more fun to own. But if I didn’t have this set, I would always wonder about it. So no regret. Well, of course not, after all, I do enjoy using them. 

Lime Crime Liquid Lipstick – Riley

Lime Crime, is it still a controversy brand? I don’t actually know what really happened. Just that it was said that they have one of the best crazy pigmented lip item. This is free from a goodie bag, so a good time to try. It’s a small travel size matte liquid lipstick in Riley. Riley is a muted reddish brown. It’s pigmented I give it that, but you can see the wrinkles of the lips. It dries down to a matte finish rather quickly. 

It’s ok, but there’re other liquid lipsticks that are more comfortable on the lips. Plus this, the oil sort of seperate from the pigment. As in the oil leak out from the packaging. Not sure if it’s just a bad batch or an old one. Oh well. 

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip – Calypso

This is better than the matte version. It’s still rather matte but it’s less drying. I like it. Calypso is also a wearable shade. It’s brownish nude but it’s quite suitable for daily. It’s not too brown. It’s warm, but doesn’t feel very yellow. It’s not exactly an easy product to put on. You need a mirror for this, but still it’s not as bad. You may have slightly out of line but nothing can’t be fix. So still good. 

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme – Adorable

I got this for about $10.20 on sale. It’s a really nice neutral colour. I like how it gets to be a really comfortable matte. I like the shade. It’s a really pretty nude. But it’s not concealer nude. It actually suit my skin tone quite well. As in it doesn’t look dead on me. 

What I like the best is the comfortable factor. On the lips it doesn’t feel dry. So it’s just nice. It doesn’t really transfer. So it’s good. It last quite well too. That’s all I have I to say. I like it. I want more neutral shades of this. 

YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush – 6

First impression I’m not a fan. For some reason it’s just too messy for me. Like the colour is just too bright. On the cheeks is even worse cause it’s just really red. It’s too pigmented, that I’m just scared it will make my cheeks look too fake. 

The second time I tried it, I still don’t like how it apply on the cheek. I guess I prefer the traditional powder style. Even cream blush is easier to apply. On the lips though, the colour is suddenly just gorgeous. I love it. It brighten up my complexion. I also suddenly like applicator. It’s a nice slightly pointed one. There is a ball like shape in the centre that grab the product out of the bottle. So that’s where the pigment will settle. I don’t have to double dip the wand. 

The sponge is nice on the lips. Application is even and smooth. So really not bad. I like it. I can even get a light stain sort of look, if I don’t put on so much. No 6 is overall a nice red which can be worn for lunch or dinner outings. 

Rouge Infusion Red 10 Essence

This is a mini version of the rouge infusion. I got one in the red shade 10. It’s a deep blood red. A rusty red. Quite pretty for fall when swatched. It can be apply sheer or super pigmented. However I find that it’s a bit patchy upon application. When you take it out of the tube, a lot of the product is on the brush. When you apply it, it doesn’t get a nice smooth finish. The only thing I like is that in the end, I get a stain on my lips. And the tube is small so it’s cute. But this is not a good shade. 

Coloured Raine Lip Laquer – Cali

This is such a gorgeous colour. I never expect it to be so bright though. This is just a normal liquid lipstick. It is not drying. It doesn’t really set though. I haven’t use it long enough for me to really test the wear out of this. I don’t know how long this will last. This also will not really stain the lips. So that is quite disappointing. But then again, I never expect much of this. This will transfer too. I just don’t know if after 1 hour, will it be better or not.

The colour though, a bright pink, is still slightly wearable. It is just not something I will wear daily. Application with a doe foot applicator is pretty standard. Again, because of the colour, I have to be careful upon application. It is not exactly a forgiving shade. Therefore, I just have to be careful.

Bought for: $15 on sale

GC Long Wear Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick

I love this. The shade is prefect. It doesn’t crack on me. It’s not overly drying. It leaves a slight stain. It transfer only a bit. So I love it. 

This is in the shade Serenity. And it is a good mauve nuetral shade that suits me very well. It’s a nude but with colour. I guess I suit mauve family tone the best. Cause every mauve shades I love. And this liquid lipstick is comfortable on the lips. It is indeed long wearing just as long wearing as any lipstick could be. 

Doe foot applicator generally is good for applying lip product. It’s normal, so nothing special. The colour is pigmented so application is easy. Just one swipe and you covers the lips. It coats the lips nicely but a second swipe makes it more full. And the tip of the applicator is able to get into the corner and sharp edges. 

I like the packaging also. It’s a frosted glass like with gold cap. So pretty to bring around. I don’t know but I think I have a thing for frosted packaging.  

Colourpop Foxy 

I wanted to try Colourpop so badly. Wanted to make a purchase when they finally shipped international. But it’s still expensive. So I happened to see my junk mail one day, and just nice they had free international shipping. So I bought a few stuff. 

This is the Foxy Mini Ultra Matte Lip Collection. I never expect it to be so small. It’s about half a pen size. It suit me just fine actually. It’s a good way to try out different colour. Plus small is better as its tiny and fit into the bag much better. This is US$18, so with the bank rate, about SG$5.10 a tube. 

The wand is a normal doe foot applicator. It is the most common of applicator so no comment. Usually I need to dip the wand again to get a fully opaque lips. It’s a pigmented liquid lipstick, but a second coat just covers the corners and gives a better coverage. 

The shade More better is a dark magenta shade. It’s hard to get a clean line for this. I like that it’s a deep shade but it will still brighten up the face. 

Creeper is a very bright red. But once it turn matte, it became much better. I feel that it’s a nice orange tone red that will brighten up your complexion. 

Beeper is a pinkish nude. Actually it’s just a nude, but it has a pink undertone. It’s ok on me. 

Clueless is surprising very dark. I expect it to be a brighter shade. As in a bright mauve. This is quite dark on me. As in the colour get wash away. So it’s not so nice on me. But this is quite an easy shade to use. The colour doesn’t run around as much. 

Tulle is one the hardest to apply. I guess cause it’s such a deep dark shade, that you have to really be careful applying this. And this definitely need 2 coats. It’s a very nice colour when swatched but on my lips, it’s just very vamp. And it’s not good to eat when using this. Cause the colour will run off, but some will still linger on certain area on the lips. Not pretty. 

So overall, it’s a good kit. The liquid lipstick is nice. It glides on easy and will turn matte. It transfer slightly but can almost say that it won’t. Not extremely drying. Can feel that the product is on the lips, but it’s comfortable. Some shades need to use lipliner, but as long as you gently draw on the lips, it should be fine. 

Ya, colourpop is an affordable brand and I pretty much want every shade on the web. I shall try the lippie stix next. 


Kay Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick – Lolita

There’s a few shades I want to try, but cause I’m not sure if I will like the consistency of this, I just want to try the original. I was thinking of getting Lolita 2 also, but Lolita is still the original. 

The pigmentation is awesome. It goes on shiny and will turn matte after a short while. The shade is just gorgeous. It’s a darker mauve on my lips. Slightly on the brown side. It last forever. But it transfer easily though. I was hoping that this will stay put on the lips. So it will leave a mark on the straw or the cup. But nonetheless, it’s just so comfortable on the lips. You always forget you have something on your lips. 

I would have love it a whole more if it doesn’t transfer. But yes, get this. It’s so worth the money. I love it.
