Simply Lippy Challenge Day 65 | theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in Shade Doting

Eeek, I know, I know; I’m very late with today’s Simply Lippy challenge post but I just had a crazy day today because well, Monday. But better late than never as the saying goes!


Anyway, today to brighten up a chilly Monday, I decided to wear one of my trusty favourite liquid matte lipsticks from theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Hughes mini range.


Now, I’m sure by now y’all are so sick of me talking about how much I love these lippies, but I have to admit, this one was the last in my set of minis, and I haven’t quite ended on the high I thought I would with it.


First things first, the formula is perfect. I love the drying time, I love the pigment and colour pay off, I love the lasting power. I love everything about every shade I’ve worn up to now, but today’s shade, Doting, was just not quite as fabulous as I’d hoped it would be.


I love coral shades and orange tones, and I guess I was hoping that there would be a bit more of a bright pop with this shade, hence why I left it to last. But it just felt a little dull, and didn’t have the same great impact that the other shades have had for me.


As many of you will have seen, I’ve worn all the other mini shades: Charming, Committed, Loyal, Dedicated, and Sincere, and had glowing reviews for every single one. So it saddens me to not have a glowing review for this shade too.

Don’t get me wrong, I like it, how could I not when I love the formula so much? But, in this case, I think maybe the matte formula has dulled the shade a little too much taking away any Pop there might have been. There’s nothing wrong with that really, it’s fine, it’s just not what I was hoping for.


Is it just me or what do you guys think? Could it be better, brighter?!

Sorcha 💋
