The Balm, Meet Matte Hughes review


For the past 18 months, there has been a constant stream of liquid lipstick releases. While we have seen some new regular lipsticks released, such as the Vice lipsticks, for the most part, brands have focused on capturing the popular liquid lipstick market. Yet not all releases are worth buying.
