Hi my loves,
For those of you that don’t know, Huda Kattan is a beauty blogger turned makeup artist from America who now resides in Dubai and has a cosmetics empire- Huda Beauty that is wildly successful. You’ve probably seen her on Instagram and Youtube as she has millions of followers. Her Liquid Matte Lipsticks are incredibly popular and she has created 27 shades, including two matte metallic shades. I’ve been trying the shades ‘Sugar Mama’- a peachy nude and ‘Bombshell’- a dusty rose. Are they worth the hype? Read on.
This lipstick claims to be long wearing, comfortable and transfer-proof. It was honestly really difficult for me to chose what shades to buy because she has so many beautiful nude shades. Some brands only release like one or two nudes I like but I could’ve probably honestly stuck my hand in the display blindfolded and left happy. ‘Sugar Mama’ was consistently sold out at Sephora, so when an employee snagged me the last one I figured I better try it. I decided on ‘Bombshell’ as well since it was still a warm nude that wasn’t too pink-toned but deeper than ‘Sugar Mama’. These retail for $26CAD ($20US) at Sephora. I recommend also browsing the Huda Beauty website as Sephora only carries 14 out of the 27 shades.
-Lasts about 4 hours before you need to reapply
-Definitely transfer proof
-Beautiful wide shade selection
-Slim, not bulky packaging
-Huda Beauty is cruelty free
-Expensive at $26 each
-Some shades are maybe just a little toooo similar that its extremely hard to decide
-Very liquid, kind of runny formula
-A bit drying by the end of the day
Okay, I definitely think these are hype-worthy however I do notice more lasting power with Kat Von D and Too Faced matte liquid lipstick. Don’t get me wrong they definitely do last, just not as well through eating and drinking as I would have hoped. There becomes a bit of a fade line after about 4 hours of working with drinking water throughout my shift, while I can often get away with wearing Kat Von D or Too Faced liquid lipstick for 8 hours without reapplying at all.
The formula on these is a bit on the runny side compared to Anastasia Beverly Hills, Kat Von D, Too Faced and even Colorpop, however it dries quickly. I do sense on alcohol smell at first when applying this and my lips feel dry by the end of the day, but dryness is normal for matte products. Overall I would try these for the shades and ease of wear but I wouldn’t say they are the best liquid lipsticks I’ve ever tried.
