the balm meet matte hughes I'm really liking the design of the package, THE BALM always does pretty vintage retro looks with their packaging. Shop for theBalm The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipstick Mini Kit Vol 2 at Order online now and pay nothing for up to 12 months. I recently tried The Balm Meet Matte Hughes, one of the popular liquid matte lipsticks; I've been seeing a lot of swatches, reviews, and inquiries.

The box has all the information on the ingredients on the back of it and the front has the names of the colours. This set also has mini swatch photos, or photos of the colours on lips, under each of them which is helpful as a few of them do seem to dry slightly different to the way they look in the tube. The tubes for the liquid lipstick themselves are mini versions of the full sized. The doe foot applicator is, again, a smaller version of the full sized.

The tubes also each have the name on then, something I forgot was on the original ones and makes it easy to know the names if you want to get the full sized one later.

I have tried each of them a few times to see how well they last with different food. Unfortunately my original watches somehow got corrupted so these photos were all taken on the same day so my lips get worse and worse condition with more matte lipstick. Other than that they do show the colours accurately on my lips.

They do seem to appear lighter in my lips than on the cloth when I removed them and darker than in the tube.

Faithful — A deep berry shade that does apply a bit patchy. As it has the slight purple tint it does make my teeth appear a bit yellower than they are but lasts really well and does stain your lips slightly.

Charismatic — a mid tone nude with a slightly orangey toned base. Applies evenly with one coat and lasts well. Brilliant — a mid salmony pink, does look a lot darker in the shadow than in the light but a nice spring or summer colour to me. Affectionate — a kind of lavender and mauve mid tone colour that reminds me of NYX Embellishment but a bit lighter.

Reliable — an orangey based brown, one of the darkest in the set and probably a true brown rather than the nude tones that have a brown tint. It does show orangery in light and looks quite bright then. Applies really evenly and opaque, easily covered a dark mole on my arm when I first swatched it. Romantic — a true dark red, it does seem to make my teeth look yellower so I think there is a slight blue tones that makes it a muted red rather than a classic bright red.

The most opaque of the colours and really does stain so be careful when removing it as you can end up with a bright pink stain around your mouth. The formula for these liquid lipsticks is really nice.

So much so that I included it in my May faves too. Although having said that, it's made more affordable because its available on ASOS and Feeluniquetwo sites which often have some sort of discount on. A simple plastic tube with a silver lid and a bit of cutesy The Balm image on the front!

I like how easy it is to see the colour through the clear tube and theres not a lot to say about the packaging aside from that it's neat and functional. The doe-foot applicator is comfortable to use and I really like how it distributes just the right amount of product too.

Formula and Lasting time: The Balm's liquid lipstick line is awesome, the formula is very light weight and it lasts a looong time! With eating and drinking it has remained in place for 7 hours - pretty impressive seeing as I devoured a scrumptious GBK burger.

It feels kind of cooling on the lips as it dries down. The formula itself isn't very liquid like, it's more on the cream side of things. It does remind me ever so slightly of the Stila formula, however these are a lot less thick. Committed is a shade which seems to look different on different skintones.

I first saw Lustrelux talk about it and on her it seemed quite mauvy, whereas it can come off quite peachy on warmer skintones.
