Now if like me you shop on Cult beauty a lot then you will know that every month they have a brand that is featured and you usually get free delivery with purchases from that particular brand. Which I think is such a good idea, Cult beauty stock some amazing brands and I also stock up and take advantage when they have their brand of the month, I mean I’m always shopping on Cult beauty dont get me wrong but Id say every month or so I will make a big order of some of the products I have had my eye on.
This month is Huda Beauty, and she’s recently launched some new products, so obviously I had to pick up a couple of things because we all know I have issues and can’t resist the temptation.
I just wanted to talk about a few products I already love from Huda and also a few new ones that have just launched. I feel like Huda is completely killing it lately, she seems to have so many new products launching and one thing I love about all her products is the packaging, you will see why, just keep on reading.
This is the first eye shadow palette I have of Hudas, I have to be honest I didn’t buy any of the others as I have so many similar shades and I had to draw a line somewhere ha ha I end up buying so much makeup that I’ve recently tried only buying stuff I really do want and need. And I couldn’t resist this mini Obsession palette, Yep I have other warm toned palettes but I knew I needed this the minute I saw the swatches, The shades looked amazing. she has four of these in total, warm, Mauve, Smokey, and electric. So definitely a variety and a palette for everyone.
The shadows are super pigmented and blend really nicely on the eyes I just think this one is a must for Autumn as it has those gorgeous warm toned oranges and browns in a mix of matte and foiled textures.
It is on the small side, But it’s not suppose to be a big sized palette like Hudas other ones, this has been specially created to take for travel and on the go with really wearable every day shades, these are even great to try before buying her full-sized palettes if you was unsure on the pigment and formula.
Now isn’t this just packaging goals!! I told you Huda always kills it with her packaging! This is like every makeup junkies and Huda holics dream. These lip tins contain, Hudas famous Lip contour lip liner, liquid matte lipstick and her lip strobe. The perfect tools to create that popular plump looking lip.
I picked up the sets in Bombshell/Ritzy and Trendsetter/snobby although in total their is four different shades to choose from, But I went with the nudes!! But just FYI for some reason Hudas nudes look so dark on me, except for the nude love mini collection that I will talk about later, that set is a must for Nude lipstick lovers.
These lip tins will make the perfect Christmas gift and stocking filler, I’m actually going to be including these in my gift guides that’s coming on the blog soon, But They’re perfect if you want to try out any of these products before buying the full size, as the liquid matte and lip strobe come in a deluxe mini size, which is also so handy for on the go and to keep in your makeup bag.
lip contour liner – draw around you lips, over line just a little bit for that perfect fuller lip. Hudas lip liners are so creamy and is so easy to use. You can even fill your whole lip in with these, they’re that comfortable to wear alone.
Liquid Matte – the Liquid matte formula is unlike anything I’ve tried before, and I’m still getting use to it, these are not drying in the slightest and feel so moisturising on the lips, if you’re not a fan of liquid lipsticks because you don’t like how matte and drying they are then you need to try these. On me they do take a little while to dry down but I think it depends on what I have used underneath. They’re transfer proof but you will need to reapply them after eating oily foods.
Lip strobe – These can be worn alone or over the top and create a gorgeous 3D strobe metallic look, it can also look a little glossy depending on what you wear it with. These are gorgeous to add a little something extra. I have been loving the shade ritzy, it’s a gorgeous gold shade that looks beautiful over the top of my favourite nude.
Trendsetter & snobby – trendsetter is a warm toned brown nude, snobby is a rose pink with gold reflects.
Bombshell & Ritzy – Bombshell is Hudas most iconic shade, its a dark pinky nude and Ritzy is a gorgeous true gold.
This set I am totally In love with, it has the perfect nudes to suit a lot of skin tones with a peach, pink, brown and neutral nudes. This set is also going to be included in my Christmas gift guide as it’s the perfect gift to give for fellow lipstick loves.
Like I said previously the formula is very thin and moistursing, it doesn’t even feel like you have anything on, plus they smell amazing, it does have quite a strong coconut fragrance.
Last but certainly not least is two of the newest releases, which is the complexion perfection pre makeup base primer this has been launched in conjunction with her new faux filter foundation and face brush. I haven’t yet tried the foundation as I literally don’t have a clue what shade I am, I have never had this problem before, I’m usually the lightest shade in foundations but Huda has such a good shade range and the fair shades come up very light that I’m struggling to pick one, and also the fact the shades are never in stock for long as its so popular at the moment.
But I have been testing out the primer and brush for nearly a week now and can give you my first impressions if you’re thinking about getting either of these.
I have combination skin, oily on my t zone but I get very dry everywhere else, and my skin is playing up so bad right now due to the weather. This primer is very thick and does feel more like a moisturiser, I can see why it’s called a pre makeup base, as it could be used as a primer and moisturiser. I feel like no matter what your skin type is you could still end up loving this primer, especially if your pairing it with your favourtie foundation. it’s very moitsturing and does leave a slight tacky feeling on the skin, it did for me anyway but it didn’t feel uncomfortable or anything. It felt like my skin was hydrated and smooth looking, But not the usual dewy finish I’m used to or prefer from some of my favourite other primers. I did notice my t zone didn’t get as oily though throughout the day so I like I said I definitely feel like this can be used for all skin types, as it seems to be moistursing and also keeps the oil at bay!! I did feel like I looked a little bit dryer than I’m used to but again I don’t know if this is just because my skin is playing up. I’ve only had it a few days so that’s just my first impression, the more I use it I will know for sure how it wears. Loads of people who I have spoken to who have got this and the Huda foundation absolutely love it and said they’re amazing to use together. So I will definitely let you know how I get on with it the more I use it.
The face brush is a buffing and blending foundation brush that goes perfect with the primer and foundation. It is soft but densely packed white hairs and has a flat angled edge which is the perfect shape to use on the face and getting round hard to reach areas and creases like the nose, eyes etc. It gives a flawless streak free finish and I am really loving this, normally I’m a beauty blender kind of girl and rarely use brushes anymore but this really applies foundation nicely and makes your foundation look full coverage and has a natural airbrushed finished. I find Brushes that are dense and flat are the best type of brushes to apply liquid and creams.
So that pretty much sums up my Huda beauty collection and the products I love and recommend. Keep an eye out on my gift guides starting next week which will also include Huda goodies.
If you’re a Huda beauty fan then I definitely think you need and would love these new additions to her ever growing collection, especially the mini sets for Christmas. Anyone who loves more full coverage then you definitely need the primer, brush and foundation. And I’m definitely going to be keeping an eye out to see when the shades come back in stock.
Have you got any of these products on your wish list?? Let me know, but now is the perfect time to take full advantage and order them with free delivery from cult beauty
