My fourth voxbox, and my first ever makeup voxbox.
I adore Huda’s liquid matte formula and the shade “Trophy Wife,” so was excited to try her power matte lipsticks.
Two shades were generously provided: “Joyride” and “Interview.”
If the color spectrum runs orange -> dusty pink/red -> chocolate, these two leaned heavily on the orange. I believe they were the lightest shades of the bunch.
Here is the ingredients list.
Left is “Joyride,” right is “Interview.”
Again, the left is “Joyride,” right is “Interview.”
The shades are on the warm side, brownish nudes that can be worn comfortably. It’s more taupe on-lips than in the tube.
The formula is creamy-matte and goes on thick. The scent was interesting. It reminds me of Crayola lightly dipped in vanilla, waxy and sweet.
Left: Interview, Right: Joyride
Keep in mind, the sun was barely out (cloudy day) so the colors look less saturated. I really liked “interview,” but “joyride” was a tad too muddy for my liking. Just personal preference. “Interview” is gorgeous!
The lips go on thick but stay. I’ve been out eating with “interview” on, and it didn’t leave me even after a reuben + chai latte.
This is one of those lipsticks that you “feel” on your lips. It doesn’t feel like a second skin, but the feeling is akin to putting on a leather jacket on the outskirts of spring.
I like the formula enough to maybe try the shade “pay day” someday. 🙂
