Almost two months ago, I posted about a set of matte liquid lipsticks on Snapchat and everyone was excited to hear about it.  It’s been a while since then and I have finally had the chance to get through the whole set of goodies to share with all of you.  Matte lipsticks are so popular now a days and there are so many types and colors from different brands.  Today I share with you these gorgeous lippies from BHüe Beauty.  BHüe is a line of crowd-sourced beauty products that are formulated to enhance your natural beauty so you can stand out in a room.  Let’s take a look at these gorgeous shades, shall we?

BHüe offers Liquid Matte Lipsticks in 7 gorgeous shades to suit any skin tone or personality.  Each Matte Liquid Lipstick retails for $18.00 which is a pretty hefty cost in my opinion for the amount of product you receive in each tube of lipstick.  I was unable to find the actual amount per product, but each tube seems to be about 1/2 the amount of product than a regular liquid lipstick that you see on the market today.

Each liquid lipstick comes with a doe foot applicator and I love the packaging.  It is simplistic but perfect for travel or tossing into your purse.  I also love the fact that each name is labeled at the bottom of the tube and these are really the type of liquid lipsticks that you can easily finish if you find a color you love.  I think that while they are a little high in cost for the amount, packaging and product quality would be worth the cost if there was a bit more product.

These liquid lipsticks are very pigmented and offer bright and bold colors on the lips with one swipe.  They apply like a liquid cream lipstick or lip cream so they feel comfortable on the lips.  While they do not completely set down (they are not tacky but do not dry down to a harsh dry finish), they are long lasting and water-resistant.  I especially just love the fact that I can wear them with hours without my lips feeling cracked or so dry that they hurt.  I remove them with a makeup remover wipe or with a little coconut oil and they come off easily.  There is slight transfer when eating and drinking – but still last and offer a moisturizing feel on the lips without my lips hurting.

The liquid lipstick formula is infused with Vitamin E to ensure your lips will feel moisturized all day – no matter the color you choose.  I highly suggest you line your lips with a transparent lip liner or one that is similar in shade to the liquid lipstick you have, but it is not necessary or required – I’m just a creature of habit.

I also got to try BHüe’s Tinted Lip Balm in Chameleon Pink which retails for $17.  This fun lip balm comes in a slider rectangular tin and is strawberry scented.  It’s a completely clear jelly lip balm that leaves my lips moisturized and gradually creates a soft rosy pink sheen on the lips giving me a fresh-faced look, perfect for summer.  You can apply it to your lips with your fingers or use the travel lip brush that’s included for precise application.  I love this thing… it has made my June favorites because it leaves my lips moisturized and creates a pretty hue for me to rock out this summer.

Oh – a little tip, the more you press and smack your lips, the more pink the formula becomes.  I tend to press my lips together a lot, so sometimes my lips can turn to a really bright pink where as other times, well – they will just be a soft “your lips but better” kind of pink.

The tinted lip balm contains avocado and macadamia oil that will keep your lips hydrated. Once in contact with your lips, the formula will change from clear to pink.  My lips feel hydrated and moisturized all day long when I wear this tinted lip balm on its own.  Packaging makes it easy to apply and I love that it includes a little lip brush for application.  I do not suggest using this lip balm on your lips prior to applying the matte liquid lipsticks without blotting your lips first, otherwise the lipsticks will move all over on your lips and create a mess.

Ingredient listing: Diisostearyl Malate Polyisobutene Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprate Silica Dimethyl Silylate Hydroxystearic Acid Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil Fragrance May Contain Red 27

BHüe is a cosmetic brand for those who blend their makeup – but refuse to blend into the crowd.  They offer cool products for those who want to compliment being their best with looking best.  They say… “It’s not about contouring, but about confidence.”

“BHüe’s manifesto is to be fearless. Be bold. Be the best version of yourself. BHüe.”

I’ve absolutely enjoyed trying out these lip products over the last two months and have really enjoyed mixing them with my eye looks and creating fun and bold lips for summer.  I love that the range of shades they have available make great ones for any time of the year and they will certainly go well for any skin tone.  I do enjoy a great liquid lipstick, but I think what I love the most about these is that they are so comfortable on the lips – that I can wear them all day, remove them and my lips still feel soft.  They can leave behind a bit of a stain with some of the shades, but overall – I’m impressed.  I mentioned the price being a bit high for my liking, but considering it is a crowd-sourced brand, I understand the reasoning behind the cost.  I can’t say I would purchase these at full price, but I can’t say I wouldn’t either.  The colors are gorgeous, super pigmented and I do enjoy them and those that know me or read this blog, know that if I really enjoy something – I may change my mind and purchase it later even if I said I wouldn’t.

The lip balm – definitely a favorite of mine and one I enjoy.  I have gotten a lot of use out of this product and I know it’s something I would buy again, knowing how great my lips feel and how cool the colors change on my lips.  This lip balm is functional for me, especially during the summer when I don’t use much but makeup and lip balm anyway.  It keeps my lips soft and moisturized all day long with is a HUGE plus in my book.

BHüe is a small company and I haven’t seen a huge buzz around the brand or their products as of yet, but I do think that they have a great product that will turn heads.  The quality of these lip products definitely warrant the price tag and my lips just absolutely enjoy how they feel on.  Have you heard of BHüe before?  If so, what are your thoughts on the company?  If not, do you think this is something you would want to check out?  What do you think about the price?  Comment below and let me know.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t think that I would write about these, but since I already filmed the video review and it’s been sitting in my Que for release for a few weeks now, I figured that I would write one anyway.  My opinions haven’t changed since first trying these lippies and I doubt that they will.  Let’s get on with it – shall we?  Today I’m talking to you about the Wet n Wild Color Icon Metallic Liquid Lipsticks from the Limited Edition Lost in the Wild Flowers collection.

The Wet n Wild Color Icon Metallic Liquid Lipsticks from the Lost in the Wild Flowers collection showed up in my local Walgreens about a month (or more) ago and I found four shades available.  The display was quite picked through so I’m not quite sure if there are more colors available, but I picked up what my Walgreens had and I was really excited to get my hands on them.  Retailing for just $3.99 these metallic liquid lipsticks were a part of a limited edition collection that included nail polishes and some blush and highlighters (or that is what I seen in the display) and I decided I would only pick up the lipsticks.

Now this new craze of metallic liquid lipsticks seem to be hitting quite a few companies and brands as they are being released all over the internet and you may have already seen different brands like Kylie Jenner and Milani – even ColourPop recently released a set of them.  I was quite excited to try one that was affordable.  After bringing the four shades home with me, I immediately began to swatch each one.

The packaging is adorable and I love how small it is while still packing in a good amount of product.  The doe foot applicator is also quite nice.  It has a slight dip in the applicator allowing you to apply the product to your lips easily and ensuring the product hugs your lips to create shape.  It reminds me of the Jordana Sweet Cream liquid lipstick applicator which I talk about in this post here.  The only difference is that the one from Wet n Wild, the applicator is a little more on the fluffier side, but it still makes applying the product a breeze.

If you are looking for a lip product that is much like a gloss, you may like this particular lippy.  This reminds me of a glittery gloss with a similar texture.  It’s kind of odd to me to be honest and applying it on my lips – while the colors are pigmented, it looked weird and felt uncomfortable.  This is not a liquid lipstick texture I would prefer.  It reminds me of a gel like lip gloss formula with shimmer and metallic flecks.

Longevity… I couldn’t say that these lasted AT ALL.  They kiss off very easily and drinking or eating anything really left a mess behind.  While they do have nice pigment and color, I hate that when I wipe it off my lips, it leaves that metallic shimmer behind which settles into the fine lines and cracks in my lips.  It’s unattractive and really emphasizes all those lines on my lips whether at it’s full pigmentation or faded.  I also haven’t seen any other colors available in this line and while I’m not a fan, maybe a different color selection would make for a different opinion.  All of the shades have a blue base to them, which is not my favorite to wear – especially if they have a shimmer or metallic look to them.

 

Since they are so affordable, I think they would definitely be a great topper for a matte lipstick or something fun to wear.  They oddly remind me of my childhood – which by the way, I am a child of the 80s and a teen of the 90s, so that says a lot about the shade range and finish.  While I was able to apply the lip products and get color from them, there is a lot of streaky color application and sometimes I felt like I was applying more and more but rubbing off color at the same time.  While these are cheap, unless you have something fun planned for them – I don’t think they would be used well for every day or even special occasions.  I have had MANY Wet n Wild lippies over the years and these definitely made the “eh” list because I have them so I’ll try to make use of them, but I’m not a fan and don’t think I will be.  If I had to absolutely choose one out of the whole bunch, I think “Coming Up Roses” – the darkest shade in the bunch, would probably be my favorite – though, I wouldn’t exactly use the word “favorite”.  One I know I would be able to make use of is the purple shade – Indigo Your Own Way.  When it comes to the metallic part in that particular lipstick, it lends for the glitter to be more wearable then the rest.

In the packaging, these look like absolutely beautiful colors and I think they are… but for me personally, I think they just were not the right fit.  At under $4.00 each – the price point is nice and I’m sure I’ll figure out a way to make use of them.  Have you tried these yet and if so, what are your thoughts?  If you haven’t, do you think you’ll be checking any of these out.

I have always been a fan of Wet n Wild and I’m really enjoying their new releases I’ve seen hitting the stores lately, but this particular set I think could use some improvements.  Texture, longevity and overall formulation could use some changes and are certainly to be desired.  While this is my opinion of these liquid lipsticks from Wet n Wild, that doesn’t change my general opinion of the brand, and I do still enjoy what WnW offers.
