Hi I am Jyoti. Everything-That Matters was more of a personal space for me to write on anything and everything that came to my mind. Never knew it is going to reach so far. It is still the same in the sense that I share anything that is exciting but now it has turned into a platform for many to share their thoughts and view point as well.
Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Venus” Review & Swatch-
We all love Huda Beauty collection and especially their liquid matte lip colour. It has the best matte texture and longitivity, finding these were initially very hard in India but thankfully these are now available on Nykaa. They have plenty of shades ranging form nude to bold ones. You can go for a swatch test at Nykaa Luxe stores, but if you don’t have a store near you then reading reviews online is the only possible solution. I have already reviewed four shades and here I am reviewing the fifth one- VENUS. Read on to find more information on this product!

My take on the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in “Venus”-
Packaging of all Huda Matte Lipsticks is really elegant and classy. It comes in a transparent matte like glass tube with a black lid. The lid has an attached applicator. Since the tube is matte so it is difficult to judge the exact shade by simply looking at the tube. I have mini set, so it is very convenient for me to carry it around.

The lipstick is quite liquidy; but the applicator that comes with it makes it very easy to apply on the lips. It is good for beginners as well. A single coat is enough to cover my lips evenly and give a beautiful nude brownish shade. It does not dry my lips since I always use a lip balm with any of my matte lipstick. It feels comfortable on my lips and doesn’t give me that heavy feeling.
Staying power is about 4-5 hours which is good enough and also it dries within 2 minutes of application.

The shade is a light brown in color with a little orange tint, it is quite similar to M.A.C. Matte Lipstick in Runaway Hit shade. I recommend testing this one particularly since Huda designs shade for woman all over the world. It might not suite all Indian skin tones. This shade goes well with heavy eye makeup, perfect for wedding and even for day outings.Overall I think the shade is decent and gives my makeup an elegant look.
Pros of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in “Venus”:
Beautiful light brown nude shade.
Dries within 1-2minutes.
Fragrance is charming.
Does not transfer.
Cons of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in “Venus”:
Can be a bit drying.
