Some of you may remember me trying out theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes liquid lipsticks back in the first few months of my challenge and absolutely loving them. And today, I’m trying out another shade from the collection which I haven’t tried before.
Affectionate is a purple toned lipstick that is probably a bit daring for a day in the office, but as we all know, that’s never stopped me before. It only took a few minutes after applying for me to remember why I love these lippies so much, and I don’t know why I left it so long to try another shade.
The formula is creamy enough to keep your lips smooth and soft, even when the wet formula dries in to its matte finish, and the staying power in these is probably one of the best, if not the best, long last formulas I’ve ever come across.
When you apply this lipstick, you get incredible pay off from just one layer and once it’s on, it’s not going anywhere. I applied this first thing this morning and by 5pm hadn’t needed to reapply it at all – and that was after eating breakfast and lunch, and having numerous cups of tea!
