The shade: miss america

Liquid matte lipstick. Three words I never quite got the hype behind, but then again, I’m a girl who loves a little sparkle. When Huda’s new and improved version arrived I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Firstly, wow what a color palette, it was hard to pick a favourite. With a newfound love for red lipstick, I decided to try Miss America, an intense red that really packs a punch. The first thing that struck me upon opening was the scent…that’s all I can describe, Malibu and Coke, a strong reminder of my early college days.

The first use proved why the OG of this product was so popular. The texture is very creamy and applies quickly and glides on thinly which helps the hold. Once dry, my lips felt so soft I forgot I was even wearing matte lipstick, which is always a plus for me. The only downside is that you have to be very careful when applying it, because when Huda says this is streak-proof and lasts 8 hours, they really mean it (so have Q-tips handy if you like a bit of a messy applicator like me! ).

The shade: symbol

If you’re a fan of the OG Huda Matte Lipsticks, fret not, the new generation is just as iconic as ever. The updated formula is vegan-friendly, feels lighter than before, and the added ingredients (like olive oil and vitamin E) make it a little more moisturizing.

The pigment is superb and the staying power is really impressive, my only downside is that it’s a little difficult and messy to apply, but well worth it as the finish is stunning. Also, when I don’t feel like applying it precisely, I dab a little in the center of my lips and blend it out for a more diffused look that’s super easy to maintain.
