My Entire Huda Beauty Liquid Lipstick Collection - Swatched!
I've been to-ing and fro-ing over whether or not I should write this post. It's no secret, I've declared my love for Huda Beauty's Liquid Matte Lipsticks all across my blog and social media, despite my initial reservations, and as I recently came to add the 'Reds' and 'Pinks' mini sets to my collection, I thought that rather than waffle on for another two posts about each set individually, I'd just whack all of the shades I own on my arm and let them speak for themselves.
A quick word on the mini sets before we get cracking. I think they're such a fantastic release and a great way to try several shades from the lipstick line. I initially purchased the 'Reds' set and then was very kindly gifted the 'Pinks' set by my lovely friend for my birthday. The sets are as follows:
Reds - Heartbreaker, Material Girl, Showgirl, Famous
Pinks - Gossip Gurl, Trophy Wife, Icon, Socialite
There's also a 'Nudes' and a 'Browns' set available.
Okay, here we go. Shades from left to right:
Venus - One of the very first shades that I bought, (and adore!). A warm, brown-toned nude.
Icon - A peachy/brown nude. It gives off a touch of KVD Lolita; although way less drying and more comfortable to wear.
Socialite - I was so excited about this newly released, 'metallic' shade; however it doesn't apply well or look particularly flattering, (think crusty, chapped lips - yuk) It's a washy dirty pink shade with gold glitter running through it. I feel that this may be one to try over the top of a more pigmented liner or lipstick as on its own, it doesn't work at all.
Gossip Gurl - This shade wasn't really on my radar but boy, was I wrong. This is hands-down, one of my favourite shades. It's such a wearable pink shade and one that has been getting a lot of love since I received it.
Flirt - This is one of those 90's brown shades. When I swatched it in Sephora, I wasn't sure; however I'm really glad I decided to buy it as it makes for an alternative, statement lip that is actually rather flattering, and makes your teeth look white. #Priorities.
Medusa - A dusty mauve that is very much one of those, 'trend' shades. I really like this colour when my skin is a little more tanned. I'd initially dismissed this shade as it looks more greige in the artwork on Huda's packaging; however it swatches with more of a purple undertone.
Trophy Wife - I have this rosey/nude shade in both the full and mini sizes, plus the Lip Contour. That's what you call dedication! I actually haven't been reaching for this as often lately but I was committed over Autumn/Winter.
Showgirl - Firstly, I need to get it out there that I absolutely love this shade. It's such a pretty, rose/red, metallic shade. Unlike Socialite, I really like how this one looks once applied. My only critique is that the metallic formulas are slightly thinner than her original matte line which means a couple of coats is essential. For Showgirl, it's worth the extra effort.
Heartbreaker - A bright, Hollywood-style red.
Famous - A deep, wine red. It's not a shade I'm reaching for right now but I can see me getting a lot of wear out of this when Autumn swings around again.
Material Girl - This is more of a purple, plum shade and one that I'll likely end up giving away as these kinds of shades really do nothing for me. I expect there will be some who are crazy for this shade, but for me, brighter purples just don't work well.
