Review & Swatch

Meet Matte Hughes in Charming

Packaging – It’s a slim transparent liquid lipstick tube that has a secure twist-cap. You can see the actual lip color right away.

Formulation – It has a mousse like texture that glides softly on the lips. You can barely feel it on with its weightlessness. It doesn’t have any tacky or sticky texture while or after setting.

Color – Charming is a rich warm muave that reminds me of hot cocoa. This is something I’d wear on a brunch with my amigas.

Staying Power – Light but long-lasting. It only fades quite a bit when eating and drinking. Stays on a maximum of 5 hours on my lips and leaves a soft stain behind. Still flattering.

Cons? What cons? I don’t see any cons.

Final Thoughts – At 790php (15usd) a tube and a mid-range product, this is certainly worth your spend. Trust me. I’ve tried SO SO SO MANY lipsticks and Meet Matt(e) Hughes has one of the best formulation.  If you want to try most of their shades you can get their sampler set at BeautyMNL
