Come on! who is not obsessed with the fluttery lashes and the amazing lip contours from the HudaBeauty range? And as you might already be aware, the Liquid matte lipsticks are the newest addition to the range. But is the HudaBeauty Liquid Matte just another liquid lipstick? You will find out soon, keep reading.
Introducing Huda Beauty’s latest lip beautifier: the Liquid Matte, an unrivaled take on the liquid lipstick. The tried and true comfort-wear formula is infused with an exclusive complex to help maintain the lips’ hydration. The lightweight formula glides on a thin coat of color that intensifies as it sets to a matte, transfer-free finish with amazing staying power. You might even forget you’re wearing anything on your lips at all! Pair it with a complementary Huda Beauty Lip Contour to set off your look.
Huda’s tips for the perfect pout:
1. Prep your lips: To improve the consistency of application, gently exfoliate with a lip scrub. Blot off any excess oils.
2. For maximum impact, line lips using the Lip Contour and fade towards the center.
3. Apply a thin layer of Liquid Matte in the corresponding or lighter shade to fill in the rest.
4. Allow approximately 30 seconds for the color to set and intensify to an opaque finish. Color appearance may vary based on skin tone.

My review of the HudaBeauty Liquid Matte
First, let me share my experience trying to get the HudaBeauty Liquid Matt. I had to go a few times to the Sephora where it was launched and had to struggle to get one for myself. When finally I passed the crowd around the HudaBeauty counter there were no trying or testing and just a few shades available. So I took Bombshell. Bombshell is a pretty nude peachy-pink shade and I absolutely love nude pinks.
Coming to the packaging, I really have to rave about the box in which it comes. I absolutely love the packaging, which has an image of Huda’s lips, so adorable. The real product comes in a sleek matte tube which is transparent, it definitely looks luxurious. I also love the doe foot applicator which makes applying the product really easy. Now the smell, it smells like cakes, vanilla to be exact. I really love the scent. If you have a sensitive nose, don’t worry the smell fades away once the liquid lipstick is dry.
I love the formula of the HudaBeauty liquid matte which is wet and runnier than most liquid lipsticks. Also unlike most or I think all liquid lipsticks, the HudaBeauty Liquid matte takes a little longer to dry. This is an advantage in disguise, you get more time to work with it. Have you had experiences when a liquid lipstick sets so quickly and you are not happy with the lip shape or you wish to build up the color and it ended up looking patchy? Then this lipstick, my friend, is perfect for you! Brilliant formula. You can coat one layer after other, but absolutely no patchiness. But, there is still a but, when not set the liquid lipstick is tacky. Once set the tackiness is reduced but not completely.
The HudaBeauty liquid matte glides on really smoothly, feels like butter. The pigmentation is also superb, the shade bombshell which I used is a nude shade, but still is 99% opaque. One swipe is enough. It would be even better if you are using darker shades. The texture is so thin and lightweight. You hardly know you have any lipstick on your lips except when you get that slight tacky feeling, otherwise, the lipstick is so comfortable on the lips.
The Hudabeauty liquid matte claims to hydrate your lips. It contains some really hydrating ingredients like beeswax and olive oil. However, I am not sure it gives any extra hydration but it does not dry up your lips like most liquid lipsticks. I have used it with and without using lipliners and found that this liquid lipstick stays intact for a long time. I have had heavy meals, light meals, coffee but still the lipstick didn’t fade. It did fade a bit but completely negligible especially when I have used a lip liner. And when it fades, it fades evenly. The other great thing about this lipstick is that it does not transfer at all when set.
The Hudabeauty liquid lipstick comes in 16 different shades and the shades look different on different skin tones. As I have already mentioned I have Bombshell. I don’t know if you can spot, but the color becomes a bit darker when set. Just take a look at the images below.
- Great pigmentation and excellent coverage.
- Brilliant formula.
- So light and comfortable on lips.
- Long wear quality.
- Transfer proof.
- Fades evenly.
- Great color options.
- Applies really well.
- Does not leave your lips dry.
Not in love
- Slight tackiness.
- Availability might be an issue.
The Hudabeauty Liquid Matte is the best liquid lipstick I have used so far. If I completely neglect the slight tackiness then this is a perfect liquid lipstick. I give it 4.9/5, highly recommended!
