Lip Stain Love | The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes


By now y’all know about my love for matte lips 

Even more so, my love for matte lip stains. I have to say it excites me that more brands are getting involved with this and liquid lipsticks are becoming an extension to most major make up lines. Sephora Lip Stains have been my HOLY GRAIL for years, that was until they changed the formulation and the collection of colours - UGH (Thank god for buying back ups).

I didn’t think anything could rival my beloved Sephora lip stains - WRONG! 

Let me introduce you to Meet Matt(e) Hughes the liquid lipsticks from The Balm which will literally blow you away. Before I continue, I have to express my growing adoration for The Balm as a brand - I mean, pretty, over animated packaging aside the products are friggin AWESOME

Anyways.. On to the liquid lipsticks - Let's start with the applicator it's GREAT, it’s firm and fits the shape of your lips perfectly - None of this flimsy, floppy doe foot (*Ahem* Hourglass) and for me precision is key when it comes to a matte lip. The consistency when you initially apply these liquid lipsticks is JUST RIGHT, not too wet that you end up smearing it everywhere nor too dry that you have work super fast. These then, mattify to an almost velvet finish which stays put ALL DAY - I’ve done the sipping coffee/eating lunch test, I may have even accidentally fallen asleep (oops) and they don't budge WOOHOO









I’ve tried four of the colours from the collection and I am honestly obsessed, I’ve worn them all and over the last few weeks I’ve worn them on multiple occasions. I can't even pick a favourite because they're all incredible

These are so worth checking out and I urge you to do so because no words will amount to their greatness. OK I’m done over dramatising things but for real, thank me later! 

Lots of Love
