I read about these and how they got good reviews. I've been meaning to try this formula out so I went to my nearest kohls from work and grabbed 2 (the tubes were in weird plastic security boxes cause women manage to open the tubes out of their boxes and swatch them, therefore drying them out/contaminating them. The colors I got were an everyday pinky nude called committed, and a sexy true red called loyal. I love how the names are named after traits of an ideal boyfriend, especially now that I'm single atm. The formula is one of the best I've ever tried, though it goes on streaky requiring more than one coat to make it even, and it does get sticky before it sets completely, and it dries to a transfer proof finish after it completely dries. I recommend it!

Review for: Adoring more...
Picked up this Meet Matte Hugh also in a sale. From my understanding, it is the darkest color that TheBalm has in that line, and considering that it's a very dark, vampy red, I'm prone to forgiving it for some of its imperfections. Adoring is exactly like the two other lipsticks I spoke about in my Meet Matte Hughes review, but it's a bit more prone to streaking/pigment settling in one place. However, if you mess around with it a bit, you can 100% get it to work on its own. However, I always pair my reds with lip liners - even if they aren't prone to bleeding on their own - so I prefer to wear it overtop a lip liner (Poison by ColourPop, if anyone is curious).

I am in love with these, my friend gave me two small trial sized ones and I finished them. They are my go to lipsticks, they smell so good when you apply them. They apply easily and they dry completely matte won’t budge with or without lip liner. If you are looking for good matte lipsticks I recommend you waste your money on these!!

I have a few colors but my favorite is committed. I LOVE this lipstick. It lasts pretty darn well, even through eating a giant burrito. It is a little sticky, especially if you put on a thick/multiple coats. I like it better than my lipsense because it’s just one layer and not as difficult to apply or remove. The cost is also better, ranging from $8-18, depending on color and where purchased. Definitely recommend!theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick

These lipsticks are my all time fav!!!! Although I do find some slight changes in the consistency from color to color they are all still great! My favorite is committed. I use this lipstick on a day to day basis as well as on all my brides. This is because they literally last ALL day.
Best part is they smell AMAZINGGG!!!! Almost like mint chocolate.

These liquid lipsticks are truly amazing! I buy
them from thebalm’s website directly, but they’re also available at Kohls and on Hautelook from time to time. I’ve tried many liquid lipsticks, both high end and drug store, and nothing can compare to these. The wear is amazing, they last, they’re comfortable, and they smell like Thin Mints! I will continue to buy these until I have the whole collection

The shade in the picture is affectionate, i also have the shade dotting. Affectionate is the most universally flattering shade in the line. These lipsticks start out tacky, but once they dry down, they dont go anywhere for 10 hours. No joke, even through grease and oilive oil! They smell and feel minty until they dry. The matte liquid lip line is very hydrating and feels comfortable on the lips. It's by far my favorite lipsticks ever, though they are a lil pricey. Keep in mind the doe foot applicator is very easy to work with, thus, making it worth the price point. There are not parabens, talc, mineral oils or any harmful chemicals. Its even crueltyfree!

Review for: Pink more...
I got a sample of this lipstick in one of my Ipsy Glam bags and fell in love with the texture. It goes on like a lip gloss, but after about 30 seconds it sets and once it is set, it lasts all day long. I have never had a lipstick with this kind of staying power! Once dry, it has a matte finish and it does not feel sticky or weird on my lips. I do recommend exfoliating your lips before you use it to achieve a smoother look. If it feels a bit drying, use a tiny bit of moisturizer or balm on your lips prior to applying. It has a nice vanilla-mint smell that is pleasant without being overpowering.

The ONLY lipstick I use! I don’t waste my money on any other lipstick! This one covers everything I need and it’s so perfect! It’s a bit high, but worth the money. I love that it’s a liquid lipstick but it dries to a beautiful matte color. The color is perfect! The scent is amazing, and it seriously last allllll day! I can eat a full meal and it’s still on! I highly recommend!
