As soon as I saw the images of Huda Beauty lip contour pencils by the famous Huda Kattan appeared on social media, I knew I had to try them. If anyone doesn’t know about Huda Kattan, where are you living? Seriously!!! She is a Makeup Artist & Beauty Blogger with Iraqi ethnicity born in the United States of America living in Dubai with over 14 million followers on Instagram. Huda Kattan started her beauty line with false lashes which became a great hit in beauty world and there was no looking back for her. She recently came with lip contour pencils and has just launched liquid lipsticks.
The idea of lip contour pencils is to change shape of your lip or to make them look fuller with two similar shades of lip contour pencils. However, these pencils can still be used as normal lip pencils.
Spending £12.50 on a Mac lip liner used to look like a lot but these retail for £16 (No Thanks!!!! its expensive and unnecessary for a lip pencil). Anyways, these were first available on pre-order from Cult Beauty website and I didn’t buy at that time (firstly because the swatches available were few and secondly, I wasn’t able to justify the price). But HELLO for a makeup addict, if you miss buying something it might leave a stamp on your brain and you keep on thinking about it, haha. So, I bought this as soon as it came in stock again.
I used the discount code CBWELCOME to grab free delivery without minimum spend on Cult Beauty website and it arrived the next day (which i least expected). As soon as this lip contour pencil arrived, I applied immediately 🙂
These come in a sleek matte black chic packaging just like Mac lip liners with Huda Beauty text logo in white & hot pink on pencils as well as outer packaging.
These lip contours are available in 9 shades – Bombshell, Cheerleader, Famous, Gossip Gurl, Video star, Trend setter, Vixen, Trophy Wife & Icon. I chose the shade ICON which is a beautiful muted red and looks very flattering on my medium skin tone.
Texture, Pigmentation & Longevity
These glides smoothly and are soft while application but dries quickly to a super matte finish like liquid lipsticks. These are very pigmented and stay for a long time. However, if you eat oily food, it breaks up and the texture as well as finish appear slightly drying or patchy so dabbing a little lip balm can help. I however prefer reapplication of my lip product in such cases.
If your lips are very dry, these may not be your cup of tea. In most cases, I do not like to touch up my makeup when I am out and about just because I am a mommy and there are many important tasks than refreshing your makeup! I would prefer this liner for occasions when I donot have to eat outside or for photography purposes.
Available through Cult Beauty in the UK for £16 each.
Worth the hype? I love love love the shade and fuss-free application of these liners. I seriously wish the lipstick formula didn’t break up after meals (but that’s the case with most liquid lipsticks). Shelling out £16 on a lip liner may be too much but seriously if you can spend £18-£20 on a liquid lipstick, these are worth trying too. Bear in mind due to the fact that how creamy these are, these will run out very quickly. You need to sharpen the pencil before each application which in my opinion is not best for a £16 lip liner. But the shade ICON is seriously amazing!
I might pick shades Trend Setter and Trophy Wife next (if I am able to get over the fact that how expensive these are, haha)
