I was browsing at Kohl's one day, looking for ways to burn through my Kohl's Cash, when I happened upon a display of theBalm cosmetics. I noticed these Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipsticks... and if you know me, I'm a sucker for matte anything. I decided to pick up one to try out. And I'm in love with the one I chose! The shade is Honest,
This warm coral shade is right up my alley! I love wearing it. I get a good 5 hours of good wear with this lipstick - if I follow a few basic rules when I wear it. I always have to exfoliate and moisturize my lips first. I use Make Out Magic by Perfectly Posh. I use it at least once a day. Another rule I have to follow is not touching my mouth; I especially can't lick my lips. I try to follow these rules whenever I wear ANY lip product. haha It's really hard sometimes! It took a while for me to break my bad habit of licking my lips all the time.
This shade just looks great with my skintone, if I do say so myself. The finish is more of a vinyl-ish look than actual matte, but that's okay. For me, it's all good if it's not hyper glossy :) It's not that I don't like the glossy look, I just prefer the flat finishes more. I do plan to, eventually, snag more of these.
What do you think about this shade? Do you have any of the Meet Matt(e) Hughes lipsticks? These retail for about $17 each, and they can be found on theBalm's website or at Kohl's.
