Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade "Icon" Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm reviewing Huda Beauty's Liquid Lipstick in shade "Icon", it comes in a frosty transparent tube which looks chic and elegant.
Since I have been reading so many mixed reviews about this liquid lipstick so thought to buy only one color to see how it really works, is it worth buying or not.

My Experience:
The formula is extremely  runny but still very pigmented at the same time. You need only one single swipe to get a perfect pout. Although its not really long lasting as compare to other liquid lipsticks, but surely the formula feels really comfortable on lips and does not feel sticky or drying at all.
If you want to wear theses lipsticks and want them to stay long enough then try to use a lip liner because with a lip liner it stays more longer than usual. Huda Beauty liquid lipsticks comes with a huge variety of colors which is great. I love this particular color because its a beautiful dusty rose nude color, I hope it makes sense :P. Its a beautiful go to color which you can wear while going university, office or for shopping.
Application:
For smooth application make sure that your lips are moisturize enough, and then apply it directly from the tube or you can use a brush as well.

Jeffree Star Summer 2016 Limited Edition Velour Liquid Lipstick in Watermelon Soda & 714 Review+Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm reviewimg these two beautiful shades from "Jeffree Stars Summer 2016 Limited Edition". I bought these lipsticks in July but after that I was in Pakistan for holidays and then came back and stuck in house chores.Well I got these lipsticks in the shade "Watermelon Soda" & "714". they came in this clear tube but with a different color opener which makes it so summery and fresh.

My Experience:

Watermelon Soda:
Its a bright coral pink shade which looks beautiful on almost all skin tones. It lasts on lips for hours which is a plus point. It does not dry out my lips at all.
It beautifully covers my entire lip in one single swipe. Its really smooth and does not streaky on lips. I love how versatile these lipsticks are, you can totally rock this lipsticks as a eyeliner which is amazing.

714:
But when it  comes to 714 which is a pastel neon pink with purple undertones, it washed me out. So if yore fairer then me than this 714 is definitely your shade but otherwise you have to mix this color with any other color to get the desired shade. Its a lil bit streaky to work with, and also you need 2-3 layers to get the exact color.  So a big no to this color otherwise I love "JS Velour Liquid Lipsticks".
If you're a person who is on the light side then go and give it a try otherwise I suggest you not to buy this color although watermelon soda looks beautiful on both dark & light skin tone.


Application:
Exfoliate your lips and then pat dry with a tissue paper or towel and apply it direct with the wand or you can use a lip brush as well.


Swatches:


Thumbs Up:
  • Pigmented
  • Long lasting
  • Beautiful shades
  • Not drying at all
  • Smooth application

Thumbs Down:
  • Locally not available
  • 714 is not suitable for Asian skin tones
  • 714 is a bit streaky as well

Texture: 
Smooth


Price:
SAR110

Quantity:
0.19 FL OZ/5.6

My Rating:
3/5


Availability:
Fashion & Makeup Riyadh


Would I Repurchase It:
Yes would love to try it but in different shades.
