Tis the season for deep lips (although I believe you can wear them throughout the entire year).
I have honestly never tried HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte and Lip Contour Matte Pencil before today and I wish I had jumped on this train a while ago. First off the packaging is sultry, and perfect for that Instagram aesthetic.
The shade "Famous" is an absolutely gorgeous Burgundy, reminiscent of my favorite Pinot Noir. Although the shade is incredibly dupable, the actual quality and featherweight formula is NOT.
The liquid lip goes on thin and comfortably. While applying it went on smoothly along my lips. Given, it does have a watery consistency but two layers leave a perfectly sleek, opaque result. It does dry down so lightweight you feel like nothing is on your lips. I recommend blotting lips so that you don't feel a sticky residue. I do have to make sure to let it dry completely before I go on about my day because it will transfer onto and stain my invisible aligners. I don't care what anyone says NO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK IS HYDRATING AT ALL, however, this liquid lipstick is more comfortable than most, just make sure you prep your lips properly and exfoliate before application for the best result.
I really do love the Lip Contour Matte Pencil. It glides on incredibly smooth as well and doesn't skip while outlining the lips. It isn't super drying and sits light and well on the lips. It is the perfect base when applied under the liquid lip but also works sufficiently on its own.
Most importantly you guys, this liquid lip and lip contour duo did survive through Taco Tuesday. A tiny bit of transfer did occur but nothing that a quick little touch-up couldn't fix.
