I hauled a lot of stuff from Sephora Dubai, and the cult favourite Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks just had to be part of it! As you probably know by now, I LOVE liquid matte lipsticks and I’ve been trying so many of them from Kylie to Colourpop to now Huda Beauty. Huda Kattan is a beauty blogger-turned beauty mogul and is so inspiring! This is my first buy from a blogger’s brand and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you guys on the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Minis Red Edition.

My Experience Trying the Lipsticks From the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Red Edition
I actually tried the shades in the order in which they’re packed because I’m slightly OCD like that haha. I’m a sucker for red lipstick so when I saw this online I just had to get it. Plus it’s the perfect way to try out multiple shades from Huda Beauty when you haven’t before.
When I twisted open the cap, there was a bit of ‘oil’ along with the liquid lipstick. That was a little annoying at first but the lipstick went on smooth enough. It’s got a slight vanilla fragrance which isn’t too noticeable. You might need to line your lips very well before you apply it because it tends to get messy. The formula is super smooth and thick so if you don’t have a very steady hand then you should line your lips first. You can also use a cotton bud to clean up after application.
The formula doesn’t dry out lips as much as some other brands like Kylie do. It’s slightly runny in its consistency, but doesn’t flake when you apply it.
Stays for a good 4-5 hours before reapplication is needed (unless you’re eating like..a giant burger or pizza or something :P). The colours are very vibrant and suit most skin tones. I didn’t face any feathering or settling in fine lines. But since the texture is slightly less thick, you may want to line your lips beforehand like I said. If your lips tend to dry out easily, apply a thin layer of lip balm. Blot it with tissue before you apply the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte lipstick.
