These Huda Beauty lip tins are the best thing we've seen all month
Kiss and makeup
It was lust at first sight when we spied these Huda Beauty Strobe & Contour Lip Sets. Here's how you can get your hands on one pronto
As a jaded seasoned beauty journalist of over 10 years, it does take quite a product to both entice and excite us. Don't get us wrong, we love makeup as much as the next woman, and probably more, but after awhile, everything becomes a little 'seen this, tried that.' But when we caught sight of Huda Beauty's new Strobe & Contour Lip Sets, they made our beauty-loving heart beat a little bit faster. Housed in a goregous tin case that looks like a well-executed ombré lip, there is something visceral and exciting about these lip sets. The good news? These babies ship internationally both from the Huda Beauty website and from UK site Cult Beauty, though you'll want to act fast to secure one... or perhaps one in every colour.
Each of these limited edition, lip-shaped tins come with cult favourite products from the Huda Beauty brand, started by makeup artist and Instagrammer Huda Kattan who has a staggering 22.7 million followers and counting. Inside, you'll find a Lip Contour pencil, a mini-sized Liquid Matte shade, plus a miniature Lip Strobe — the high-shine version of Huda's signature, contoured look. Use each product individually or combine them for an ombré effect and to create a full, luscious pout. To do so, the brand advises you to first line with the Lip Contour, then to fill in lips with the Liquid Matte shade, before finally applying the Lip Strobe for a plumped-up effect.
There are five shades in all, ranging from a sexy fleshtone to a trendy lilac. Says Kattan, "I love these colour combos because they are all super wearable. These sets make it so much easier and accessible for people to get that perfect lip contour and I love how the lip strobes give lips a sculpted and volumised look." Sorry, we would stick around to wax lyrical with you more, but we're rushing off to buy these babies for all our friends this Christmas.
