The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipstick in Sincere and Trustworthy

by - May 20, 2019

With all of the liquid matte lipsticks swamping the market nowadays, there are several of them that although not recently released, still make it to the crowd's list of favorites.  One I can name and actually in my top 5 is The Balm's Meet Matt(e) Hughes.

There are more than ten colors to choose from and I love that most of them are MLBB shades.  Of course, there's also a good red and a good plum in the mix.

The Balm is available at Beauty Bar and you could also find them in some online shopping sites like Sephora and BeautyMNL.  


Sincere is a nude pink while Trustworthy is a terracota shade.  Both are pretty shades and perfect as everyday lippies.  

Color payoff is impressive.  No need to build up the pigmentation because one swipe is solid.

Finish & Formula

They are not watery kind of liquid lipsticks nor mousse-like.  The texture is light and the finish is totally flat.

There's a peppermint scent, which some might find weird because most lipsticks smell like cupcakes, but personally, I like it!  

They do dry fast but there's still a bit of tackiness.  


I can't speak for the deeper shades but these two are fool-proof.  Both go on smooth and there's no patchiness whatsoever.  Although for Sincere, sometimes I go for two dips because it is a muted color.

Lasting Power

Matt(e) Hughes is clingy AF.  Hahaha!  😚

The color stays on for hours even after a meal more so a drink.  Since these two are natural shades, even with some fading, they would still look fine on lips.  I also don't find them drying.  

Moreover, they don't get clumpy and crusty throughout the day.  

These lippies are undoubtedly long-wearing yet comfortable and you won't need a special makeup remover to take them off.  My facial wash does the job.  Micellar water works okay too.

I seriously can't tell you a single bad thing about these.  All good.  I can't think of in-betweens too.  Hands down, one of the best long-lasting liquid lipsticks I've tried - formula-wise and color-wise.
