Wanna Meet Matte Hughes – NUDE?

So…do you want to Meet Matt(e) Hughes – NUDE?  If you like your lips matte and you like almost-nude lips, then theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Hughes – NUDE may be the perfect plan for you. He’s all about sticking around longer than most and he won’t be available forever. Ask any ‘matte’ch-maker…he is likely a perfect fit for you!

Ah, the puns are never-ending with this great little set from theBalm. The MEET MATTE HUGHES®-NUDE Set of 6 Mini Long-Lasting Liquid Lipsticks ($29.00) is a terrific limited edition collection of six mini liquid lipsticks in  nude shades. I love the small size of the lippies. They are great for the purse and it gives you the opportunity to try different colors so you can really meet your match without a huge investment. The new shades, which are the three lightest shades, aren’t available in the regular size version of Meet Matt(e) Hughes, but  you can find the not so new shades for $17.

The shades are very pretty. I am not a big fan of brown shades and often nude lippie collections veer too brown for me, or else the shade is ‘too nude’ and make my lips completely disappear on my face. These shades are great by themselves, mixed together, or layered for all sorts of options.

The real test of Matt(e) Hughes though is the staying power. Is it going to peel? Flake off? Fade away, but only in the middle of lips, leaving a line around lips? Or feel odd on, sort of sticky with no slip? I have to say that Matt(e) Hughes sticks around longer than most mattes I’ve met! It lasts for hours and I only have to retouch if I eat something greasy. I do like some slip on my lips so I sometimes cheat on Matte and add a touch of gloss. It feels good but it has a negative effect on our relationship since doing so does cut down a bit on the wear time.

Overall I am incredibly impressed with Matt(e) Hughes and while it’s not my typical MO I am happy to meet him NUDE. This is a great set! Check out theBalm and the other Matt(e) Hughes sets – there are lots of Volumes with a wide arrange of shades.  As they say, there are lots of fish in the sea…and there are lots of Matt(e) Hughes from which to choose!  – Lisa

    I still haven’t been able to full embrace the liquid lipstick trends mostly because I found that I tend to bite my lower lip during the day so I end up eating from the inside. But these are super cute and great for a date night or girls event. I really like the color range.

    I am a huge fan of lip care and I love the colors these come in. Especially the pinks and nudes!

    I haven’t tried theBalm lip products yet but I want to. This set has a lot of good shades in it and would be a great place to start.

    I have tried these lippies and am just not a fan of them. Colors are very pretty but just don’t look good on me.

  9. Gabrielle | 28th May 20

    I love liquid lipsticks and these look perfect! I need to get this set!

    I like the nudes and matte lip-glosses. It moisturizes my lips during the seasons.
