Best Liquid Matte Lipsticks

Welcome back, little birdies!

I hope everyone is having a grand ole day. I love how much warmer the weather is getting as we quickly approach summer! Hopefully, I'll be able to start posting more outfit posts now the it's bright and shiny outside.

Today, I have for you what could be the greatest Liquid Lipsticks of all time. In my opinion at least. About a month ago I went to do some makeup shopping as you saw in my previous Sephora haul and I picked up the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade Muse. I've heard a lot about Huda Beauty but I think they sell more of them in select Sephora's so there was only a small collection left in the corner of the store. My birthday just passed and one of my best friend's decided to get me another one of the lipsticks in the shade Bombshell.

Liquid Matte? More like Liquid Gold

I've always been weary of "matte" lipsticks because I'm afraid how much more dry they'd make my lips and how much the color would just cling to the dryness of my lips but my goodness this couldn't be more far from it. Before I put on any type of lipstick, no matter the formula, I always pop on some of MAC's Lip Prep + Prime. It's supposed to help give your lips the hydrating foundation it needs to layer your lippies. It also helps prevent feathering. Once that's in and set putting on Huda Beauty's liquid matte's make it feel like liquid gold. The formula is so "rich" - is that strange to use that word when talking about a formula!?- it feels like you're applying velvet to your lips. It dried pretty quickly to settle in to a lovely matte - which - didn't take hold of my dry patches. It doesn't feel like you're wearing a matte lipstick when you have it on. Your lips feel as free as they do when you're not wearing any at all.

(Unfortunately, my camera doesn't show the true color of these. They're beautiful!)

Don't get me started on the lasting power of this thing. After putting it on before work, ate and drank all day - this lasted like a dream. I've actually never had a lip product that stayed on your lips as well as this one.

 Overall, I'm obsessed and definitely see myself buying more of these in the future. I do hope they end up putting more Huda Beauty in our Sephora's. I hear great things of all her products and I would like to try more stuff. I mean, if these are this good - what else does she have in store?!

Have you tried any products from Huda Beauty? What's your favorite product?
