1. Huda Beauty- Incredibly feathery

They hold for up to 6 hours without contact with food or drinks, or 4 hours otherwise. What’s best about this novelty is that unlike other mattifying lipsticks, the huda does its job like a perfectionist and abstains from stealing the moisture on your lips. Instead, they leave them soft and smooth without a crease or emphasis on your lip lines. This is the innovative formula that merges in moisture and color flexibility in one go.
