Posh

Huda Beauty Posh Lip Strobe ($18.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a light, yellow gold with warm undertones and a golden pearl. It did not appear that white-based swatched, but the lightness of the base through when applied to the lips (and it was apparent in the tube). The texture was lightweight with a bit of tackiness but was not heavy or goopy. It had semi-sheer coverage, just as described, that went on fairly evenly. The shimmer did not disperse quite as evenly as other shades, and there was a smidgen of settling into my deeper lip lines–though less than expected given the light base. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

The Lip Strobe formula is supposed to be “sheer to full coverage” depending on the shade and can be worn “alone or layered.” Per the brand, the semi-sheer shades are: Posh, Enchanting, Ritzy, Snobby, Shameless (sheer base), Mystical, and the full-coverage shades are: Boujee, Saucey, Foxy, Fearless, Moody (Angelic’s coverage was not described). The formula has a lightweight feel, lightly creamy as it goes on initially but has a lightly tacky texture overall. The gloss spread well across the lips and had fairly even coverage with minimal settling. The wear ranged from four to five hours with a lightly moisturizing feel. There was a faint, sweet vanilla scent but tasted a bit soapy to me.

Silver Fox

Huda Beauty Silver Fox Liquid Matte Lipsticks ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark grayish taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could have applied more evenly. The consistency was thin but fluid, so it spread well across the lips, but this particular shade seemed a little more watery than others. When it dried down, it was mostly matte but a touch tacky, though I did not get transfer. This shade lasted for five hours and was slightly drying.

The formula is supposed to have “true comfort-wear” with “intense color payoff” and a “transfer-free finish.” The formula dried down fairly quickly, where I had enough time to work the product across the lips but not so much time that it sank into all of my lip lines. I’ve only tried three shades (all featured here), but all three remained tacky for an hour or two after the initial application, though I did not see color lift up as a result. There was very little transfer until I started to eat a meal, and then it seemed to break down more readily. It had a very, very sweet vanilla scent that lingered while worn.

Fifth Ave

Jouer Fifth Ave High Pigment Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation, though it was still shy of full coverage in a single layer. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and non-tacky, but it did have a tendency to sit in some of my deeper lip lines. I did not feel like the settling was noticeable from a normal viewing distance, as the coverage was even otherwise. This shade wore well for four hours and was llightly hydrating while worn.

The formula is supposed to have “full-coverage color that glides on smoothly and moisturizers the lips” with a “non-sticky” texture. The majority of the shades were semi-opaque or more pigmented with a thin, creamy texture that felt more like a hybrid between gloss and liquid lipstick than a true gloss. Despite being thinner, the gloss spread well over the lips and most shades applied evenly. There were a few shades that seemed prone to settling into my lip lines, though. They were average wearing from three to five hours with no feathering or bleeding. The formula was lightly hydrating and non-sticky with a sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Low Rider

NARS Low Rider Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin but fluid (not watery), and spread easily across my lips without streaking or pulling into my lip lines. It dried down a mostly transfer-resistant finish, but if I drank anything, I did get some transfer on my glass, though there was so much pigment that it still lasted for a good five hours on me and was non-drying.

The new formula is described as “liquefied pigments with infinite matte color saturation for lasting, weightless wear.” It’s supposed to have “full coverage in one swipe” that “dries down instantly” for “smudge-resistant, carefree wear.” The formula has a very fluid consistency that is thin, smooth, but not at all watery, and the majority of shades were nearly opaque or opaque in a single layer. The dry down started quickly but was forgiving as I maneuvered around the edges of the lips but remained a bit tacky when I pressed my lips together for over a half hour later, though as long as I did not press my lips together until five minutes post-application, the color did not lift. I have found the wear to be comfortable so far–non-drying–but not the longest-wearing nor the most budge-proof in liquid lipstick, as just sipping water, tea, or coffee caused color to transfer onto my cups. There was plenty of coverage, so it still lasted through drinking but did start to break down noticeably during a meal. Even just touching the color after a half hour of wearing it yielded color on my fingertips. The formula had a soft, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied beautifully to the lips–smooth, even coverage that made lips appear softer and more supple. The texture was lightweight with light slip but still adhered well while being comfortable to wear over the five and a half hours it lasted for.
