Hello my lovelies!
Another review for you wonderful people. These are my favourite posts to write because I love to try new things out and see what they can and can’t do. Merely it is my opinion but I hope it helps when wanting to decide whether a product is right for you or not. I always read reviews on products before I buy them, I like to know whether it’s a complete waste of money before buying it.
Huda Beauty is a brand I stumbled across on the lovely Cult Beauty Website. I hadn’t heard too much about them apart from their eyeshadow palettes. I have waaaay to many eyeshadow palettes and I couldn’t find one at the time that I completely fell in love with so my next go to product to try out was a liquid lipstick of course. As time has gone on I have heard more and more about these so I thought I would let you know my thoughts..
The shade I picked up was Vixen, which from the outside is a deep red/brown colour which is completely up my street. If I am honest I found it so hard to choose just one shade because they are all so beautiful! As I had never tried them before I thought rather than buying the whole range I should just stick to one so I can decide whether they are for me or not. What I loved on the cult beauty website was that they actually had pictures of the liquid lipstick applied to lips so you could see what it actually looks like. The amount of times I have brought something from the colour of the packaging for it to turn out nothing like it – it’s so annoying!
I love the frosted packaging, and how simple it is. You can just tell the brand have really thought about the way it looks and I think they have done an amazing job. It comes with a doe foot applicator which is my favourite way to apply liquid lipstick. I find it so easy to work with and allows me to get a crisp line so I don’t have to use a lip liner. The less products for me to apply the better!
The liquid lipstick has a strange smell to it, for me it kind of smells like white chocolate – I feel that they have tried to take the smell of MAC lipsticks and put their own stamp on it, personally it’s not for me. However, it’s not completely overwhelming and how often do you actually smell your lip products!
The application of the liquid lipstick is really easy, I don’t feel as though it gets patchy in areas and it is extremely pigmented. One layer of this and you are good to go. It is quite a thick consistency so just be wary of this, personally this doesn’t bother me but I just thought I would make you aware. The drying time of this is actually pretty instant you don’t have to wait ages to drink a cup of tea and there is not lipstick marks on your cup!
From the title this is a matte liquid lip, which is my favourite. I’m not a fan on a gloss finish, however I am very picky with matte formulations. You don’t want to feel that your lips are tight and dry you want to know that it’s going to stay all day and not dry your lips out. Well – this product ticks those boxes. Very rarely do I have to top this up, only when I’m eating a messy dinner do I feel like I need to check myself out. Half the time I forget this is on my lips. It’s extremely comfortable for a liquid lipstick especially because of this being quite a bold colour.
For me, I’m seriously impressed. I don’t really have a bad word to say about it. The colour I’m obsessed with and the formulation is perfect for me. I love it so much that I brought one for my sister for her birthday who shares my love of these now. My issue is that I want to buy them all now but they aren’t the most friendly on the purse strings. However, if you are looking to have a little splurge I would highly recommend having a look at these beauties.
