Huda Liquid Matte Girlfriend Review

I’ve not worn much makeup lately, as I’ve spent most of this month ill. In my December favourites; I included this Huda Liquid Matte, in the shade Girlfriend, and I love it! It seems like everybody raves over Huda liquid lipsticks, and I see why the formula is amazing.

Girlfriend is from the Nude Love Collection, and it costs £18. It’s a little expensive for a liquid lipstick, but you’re paying for the quality. I got mine from Cult Beauty.

The Formula

Matte liquid lipsticks aren’t normally my thing, as I tend to find them really drying. This liquid lipstick is really comfortable though. The formula is thin, but as it’s so pigmented it applies really easily. This means you only need a small amount, so you don’t end up with a number of layers.

The Lasting Power

The lasting power is incredible too. I’ve worn it to meals and it stayed put and hardly faded. It probably could have done with a little top up, but it was nothing drastic.

The Colour

Girlfriend is described as having apricot hues. As I’m so pale it does show up darker on me, than it does on other people, but it still looks alright.

The Swatch

The Packaging

The packaging is really gorgeous, as the frosted glass looks really luxurious. The boxes are also a great way to see what the colour is, as it has the lips on the front in the lipstick shade.

Overall this is a really great liquid lipstick, and the formula is one of favourites.

Have you tried Huda before?

Thank you for reading!

    I love these liquid lipsticks, I have the Nude Love Mini set and it’s so gorgeous! I have to say this is my least favourite shade out of the four in the set though but I think that’s just because it comes out quite dark brown toned on me and I’m just not used to that type of shade! Fab post Hannah and I love your photos.

      They’re so good aren’t they?! The mini set is such a good option, as the whole collection is stunning! Do you think so?! It does come out quite dark doesn’t it? Thank you so much, I appreciate that!xx

    Fab post! I love a good liquid lip, especially if the formula is not too heavy and is really pigmented, so much comfier than the ones that need a couple of layers to get the desired effect! Will have to give one of these a go! xo, Naomi

    • 17th January 2018 / 10:54 pm

      Thank you so much! The comfier they are the better; for sure! I hope you love them too xx

    This is such a pretty shade! I love huda lipsticks, my favourite one is ‘heartbreaker’ and it’s the most perfect red colour ever! 🙂

    • 11th February 2018 / 9:20 pm

      It really is! I’ll have to look into that one, but it sounds gorgeous xx

    • 11th February 2018 / 9:21 pm

      They’re definitely worth trying out. They’re so comfortable and the lasting power is insane!xx

  6. 18th January 2018 / 1:57 pm

    I hope you’re feeling better! I’ve been sick as well, so I know where you’re coming from! That shade looks lovely. I haven’t tried out any of the Huda liquid lipsticks because I’m not a liquid lippy person, but the reviews I’ve read are so good. So maybe soon! x

    Never tried Huda products, but I see them used a lot on Instagram and they always look so beautiful. This lipstick is quite pricey, but I’d say that if it’s good then it’s definitely worth the price. Love the shade you picked out. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your lovely review hun. xoxo

    Shamefully, I’ve never tried a Huda lip product before, but I would love to! This shade is to die for and definitely looks a lot more suitable for my skintone as a nude in your swatch than in the tube! x So stunning Hannah! x

    Not tried Huda before but definitely heard a lot about them. Like you, I don’t always like matte as I find they can sometimes be quite drying. This one sounds great though and love the colour.

    Hannah xx

    • 11th February 2018 / 9:52 pm

      They’re definitely one of the best liquid lipsticks out there at the minute. They’re so comfortable and last for ages. The colour is beautiful xx

  16. 24th January 2018 / 9:07 am

    Ooh I’ve never tried anything from Huda. When I looked at the swatch of this, I thought woah, it’s a bit dark for my liking as I’m pale AF. But, I reckon it would look better on the lips x


    • 11th February 2018 / 9:53 pm

      It seems like they have so many amazing products. It is a little dark, but it’s a flattering pretty colour xx

  17. 24th January 2018 / 4:46 pm

    Although for some reason colours like this don’t suit my complexion, I bet it looks incredible on you Hannah! The formula is quite forgiving, I had one of these before and remember liking it. Get well soon dear! xx

    I haven’t tried it but one of my friends wears them quite a bit and they look gorgeous on her! The formula does look great 🙂 I actually had the same thing with one of the Colourpop liquid lipsticks where it comes up much deeper on me and looks more like a brown than berry, and I’m more on the medium side so maybe it’s just one of those things haha xx

      They are a really stunning formula, it’s really comfortable to wear. It’s so strange how the colour can look different isn’t it?!xx
