I’m not particularly a huge fan of liquid lipsticks. They always seem to really dry out my lips and accentuate the lines. But after hearing so many good things about The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes collection of liquid lipsticks, I decided to try one anyway.
I was worried about spending $17 on one tube and hating it. What prompted me to take the plunge was the $10 in Kohl’s Cash I had earned. Moral of the story, spend your Kohl’s rewards and Kohl’s Cash on makeup which you can’t do anywhere else!
Committed is a medium pink color that has hints of mauve in it. These liquid lipsticks have a pretty strong minty vanilla scent to them. It reminds me of chocolate chip ice cream so I think it smells yummy.
I’m really enjoying The Balm’s liquid lipstick because it has a nice thin, light texture. It gives opaque coverage in one thin coat and doesn’t look cracked or crusty. It quickly dries down into a matte finish. However, it doesn’t dry my lips out badly like most long wearing liquid lippies.
This one does have really good staying power on my lips. If you do eat greasy or oily things, naturally it will still break down and need touched up afterwards though.
