The packaging is sort of eye catching – confer with pics. The lip gloss like tube is sq. minimize – that means, it’s cuboid in form and has a doe-foot applicator. The exterior cardboard packaging which is about 4-5 occasions the dimensions of the particular tube, has a see by way of window with the lips round it. . You’ll be able to see the tube by way of the clear enclosure of the cardboard field. Nice packaging in the event you have been a collector of kinds, however no, not very sensible for storage contemplating how a lot house it occupies. I simply discard the outer packaging.



My Expertise with Huda Magnificence Icon Liquid Matte Lipstick:

That is my second Huda Magnificence evaluate. Let’s dig in:

Shade:  The shade “Icon” described as a traditional peachy pink is a fantastic peachy shade when utilized. Over time, I’ve developed fairly an appreciation for extra impartial shades – dusty rose, peachy pinks, mauve tones – all of them look fairly flattering on our medium pores and skin tone and are straightforward to hold off. Coming again to the shade in hand, I discover Huda Magnificence Liquid Matte shades a bit tough as a result of they have a tendency to grow to be darker as they dry down – they usually can take some time to dry down – about 10 minutes or so. So, all of the swatches that you could be see on-line can depart you a bit confused as a result of aprt from the lightening circumstances being completely different, the shade itself adjustments. So what you see on the web is true however not by way of the damage of the product.


“Icon,” on preliminary utility is sort of peachy pink, very fairly, very flattering. It will look completely gorgeous on most pores and skin tones. Nonetheless, because it units, it loses a few of its peachiness and turns into extra dusty, nonetheless a pleasant color however fairly a departure from the preliminary utility.


The Firm does state that the color will intensify submit utility; nevertheless, it doesn’t simply intensify, it just about diversifies!! 😉


Perfume: I discussed this whereas reviewing “Trophy Spouse” as properly – the product has an asinine candy scent which lingers on and is sort of a flip off. It’s in all probability there to masks the scent of another ingredient within the product as a result of I don’t actually see why else would sit it there.

Texture: The feel is pretty good, it’s fairly light-weight and very properly pigmented. The product is sort of liquid and also you get good utility in a single swipe. Firm’s claims about it being hydrating – they’re a bit far fetched! Sure, it isn’t as unhealthy as Kylie’s Liquid lipstick, nevertheless, it isn’t “hydrating’ by any normal. You do NOT neglect its on! Whereas it doesn’t make your lips prunish and also you don’t have drastic tightening/stretching of your lips – you do really feel the trace of dryness.


One other factor which turns me off the product is that as time goes on, it begins disappearing from the lips (will talk about that whereas speaking in regards to the lasting energy) and begins forming these clumpy bits on the within of the mouth – on the rim of the disappearing shade – fairly unflattering.

The nice factor – it doesn’t bleed and isn’t as drying as another formulation on the market. Lastly, the dry down time is pretty lengthy.

Pigmentation:  Pigmentation is extraordinarily good!!! It goes on evenly, doesn’t apply streaky nor doesn’t the color sink into the high-quality strains of the lips. In the event you use a bit an excessive amount of product, there are probabilities of transference – of the surplus product. Nonetheless, in the event you keep on with utilizing a really skinny layer, you continue to get good pigmentation, however with faster dry time and no transference.


Lasting Energy:  Right here is the bummer – it isn’t as lengthy lasting as being touted. By “superb endurance”, if the model means Four hours – sure, you get that! Don’t get me mistaken – it’s not just like the lipstick disappears absolutely from the lips – like a lip gloss does. No, it’s extra just like the dreaded ring as an alternative. Each lipstick – liquid or bullet will put on with time or on account of consumption of meals/drink. I do perceive that. Nonetheless, if it’s a lipstick with good endurance or is definitely lengthy lasting, it’s going to disappear solely from the within of the lip – not like half the lip is gone – as within the case of Huda Magnificence mattes.

Additionally, there isn’t a staining – which could be a good or unhealthy factor relying in your private desire. I fairly love a stain as a result of it provides extra colour to the lipstick and wherever the lipstick has disappeared, that portion doesn’t look as unhealthy, however this one is sort of a “one-night stand,” – disappears on you approach too rapidly – with out a hint!


I attempted it with out the lip liner after which with it too – it didn’t influence the damage time. I’ve shared swatches – one of many lip swatch has the lip liner on one facet and the lipstick on the opposite – recent upon utility.


One factor on these lipsticks – sure, defining lips with a lip liner does make utility of the liquid sooner and cleaner. Nonetheless, I felt that within the case of Huda Magnificence Liquid Matte Icon, it didn’t profit an excessive amount of from the lip liner as base. That means, the pigmentation of the lipstick is so good that the liner doesn’t give any extra depth to the shade. In the event you learn my Kylie Lip Package evaluate – for shade “Spice,” the shade had a touch of translucency. So, the lip liner had helped add depth to the shade. So, you don’t NEED to purchase the lip liner if you’re shopping for the lipstick. Anyway, they’re offered individually and aren’t bundled collectively as equipment.

To sum this up for you:

Execs of Huda Magnificence Icon Liquid Matte Lipstick:

  • A ravishing pinky-peach shade – upon preliminary utility.
  • Light-weight texture.
  • Wonderful pigmentation!!!
  • Pretty straightforward to use with the applicator – it’s important to be a bit additional cautious because the method is sort of skinny.
  • It applies easily and evenly.
  • No feathering or bleeding.

  • Straightforward to determine color from the tube itself.
  • Switch proof!
  • Doesn’t NEED the lip contour pencil as a should purchase.

  • Tends to type mini clumps on the sting of the color within the inside a part of your mouth.
  • Breaks down extraordinarily simply and simply disappears.
  • Doesn’t depart a stain.
  • Adjustments color submit preliminary utility.

IMBB Ranking:

I assume my ranking nonetheless stands and so does my expertise. The distinction in shade didn’t create a distinction for my part. The product is just not unhealthy – a ranking of three is about a median product. It undoubtedly has wonderful pigmentation and applies evenly and might be one of many lesser drying formulation. Nonetheless, once more i’ll reiterate the factors which make a distinction to me:
1. Formulation didn’t reside as much as the hype created round it. Overlook the hype, it didn’t even reside as much as the claims made by the Firm relating to the product.
2. The perfume is de facto off placing for me.
3. At $20 worth level – you’ve a gazillion of merchandise available in the market to select from and fairly just a few are higher than this.
4. If I’ve to have a look at re-application in Four hours – why would I hassle with a liquid lipstick. When making use of a liquid lipstick – one needs to be additional cautious, it takes extra time to make sure a good and clear utility. If I’ve to do re-application after quick intervals – I’d quite go along with one thing in a bullet.

Bottomline – it might be your favorite method and that’s okay. You go along with no matter works for you. Sadly, it doesn’t work for me!
