I received this product as a deluxe sample in my monthly glam bag from Ipsy a couple months ago. I had really high hopes for this product and really wanted to like it!! However, I was very disappointed in the whole thing. I applied the liquid lipstick to my lips and immediately noticed the silky texture of the product when it went on with the application brush. I really thought this was going to be an A+ product. But once it dried a couple minutes later, my lips looked like they were flaking with pink colored dandruff... I was let down by this brand that I had really respected beforehand. There is also one more thing I want to point out; this formula has a very strong smell of mint. So strong to the point it was making my lips tingle and slightly burn. Overall, I would not recommend this liquid lipstick.

Liquid lipstick is become a huge trend going into fall, and while some matte liquid lipsticks are drying and flaky, theBalm Meet Matte Hughes definitely pushes ahead of the rest with its hydrating formula. When applied, this lipstick has a cooling, hydrating feel to it, the tingly sensation similar to Burt’s Bees, and it keeps lips moisturized all day long, which is especially great as we move into colder, harsher months. Because of it’s unique hydrating formula, this lipstick doesn’t dry up or flake off during the day like many other liquid lipsticks. One downfall, however, is that theBalm’s version of liquid lipsticks doesn’t boast the same all day stay power as it’s competitors, meaning you will have to reapply throughout the day and especially after eating and drinking.

This was actually given to me as a sample but I will definitely be purchasing one in another shade. When I first glanced at the shade I received, Committed, I didn't think it would look good on my skin tone since I had another liquid lipstick from a different brand in a similar shade and it simply didn't work for me. However, I still tried it out and I'm very glad I did because the shade looks good on me, it has a mint scent which I actually liked, it applies smoothly, easy to remove, doesn't smudge at all, doesn't dry out the lips, and it's very long lasting. The one thing I didn't like about this product was how it was a little patchy on me so I would have to apply another layer. However, I do think the quality is definitely worth the price of this liquid lip.

The colours are really nice! The liquid lipstick goes on very smoothly and smells minty. As is with many mattes, it can be a bit drying but it is non-streaky, pigmented, transfer proof after drying pretty quickly, and stays put all day. My husband hates when I kiss him if he'll end up with colour all over his face, but he loves when I wear this since I can kiss him as much as I want and he doesn't have to worry about transfer. If you have a Kohl's nearby they should have some testers that you can sample before you buy. I love this brand of liquid matte lipstick, but I wish it wasn't so much. If you're able to splurge, though, its definitely worth it! My favorite colour is Devoted.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Really easy application, dries quickly, and the perfect shade for my skin tone (very pale). This does not last very long but can prolong the wear time with a lip liner. The lip color is really opaque and could cover my lips with one dip of the dough foot applicator. It dried out my lips a little bit but I also have very sensitive lips so by just applying a moisturizing lip balm overnight re-moisturized my lips after wearing (I also go into wearing a matte lip color that my lips will be dry). Also love that the balm is cruelty free!

I have used many a liquid lipstick, but this one I feel has the best formula out of all of them that I've used. I received a sample of this liquid lipstick in the shade "Committed", in my Ipsy bag. It has a fresh minty-vanilla scent and it truly lasts all day. It will rub off a bit if you eat oily food, but it's quite simple to reapply (I suggest you take off the rest before you reapply, otherwise it will start to flake off). I've worn it for 12 hours at maximum and my lips never felt dry while I had it on, which is truly incredible!

Let me start off by saying this stuff right here smells like HEAVEN. Chocolate, minty heaven. It glides on nice and smooth and lasts several hours, through kissing the hubby and pigging out all day. The shade I got is actually pretty darn close to the color of my lips, so I actually put it on over top a slightly darker color lip liner and it really pops! I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a liquid lipstick that lasts a long while and leaves the lips feeling soft and smooth. I love this formula SO much.

Review for: Adoring
I will start with saying that before I discovered this, I hated lipsticks of all varieties. My good friend had this in her purse and I decided to try it as my look could have really used a red lip. I LOVED it so much I now use it all the time. It's easy to apply and stays all day without need to reapply. Actually used it on my wedding day and it lasted from the salon to washing off makeup after the reception, even with the smooches. I do agree with other reviews and recommend exfoliating your lips for best results.

Review for: Matte
This is the best lipstick I've ever worn. I was looking for something specifically to be able to kiss my kids that wouldn't leave marks on their skin, and a friend recommended it to me. I like that it's more opaque and like lipstick than lip stain. It dries fast and feels good - a little minty. It doesn't dry out my lips, and it lasts all day long, fading a little throughout the day but pleasantly. And it certainly doesn't leave kiss marks on my kids. I'm so excited to be able to have colorful lips again!

I got this at Kohl's and they have a steal deal!
You can get full sized Commited and Devoted bundle for $21
These are the best matte lipsticks, they feel comfortable, pigmented, and smells amazing, they smell sweet and minty!
It doesn't settle into lines and it lasts a long time and I can wear this for 7+ hours without feeling like my lips are a desert!
It doesn't crumble off and there is minimal transfer!
I do with they would come out with more colors!
Overall I love these lipsticks and they're amazing!

Does this dry out your lips? I really like the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks and want to try these.
