Huda Beauty Contour and Strobe Lip Kit Review

I love cute packaging and this kit got me immediately. I had to have it. A cute metal tin in the design of lips. Like my Stila can collection, probably useless but cute and kitschy nonetheless.

The kit comes with a matte lipstick, a matching lip liner and and lipgloss. I picked up Muse/Angelic set. A mauve rose combination. The photos appear more rose colored. The set is definitely more mauve.

The matte lip is a longwearing matte color in Muse. The product itself is light on the lips, So I barely notice it. It’s not sticky or tacky. But it’s not moisturizing either. I still wanted a balm or gloss over the top. This lasted about 4-5 hours until I ate. After I ate, there was still some color along the outer edges. There is a faint coconut vanilla scent but goes away immediately. Overall, I enjoyed this matte formula. It doesn’t last as long as my favorite long wear lipcolor by Stila, but it was lighter feeling on my lips. Retails for $20.

The contour/liner also came in the matching shade of Muse. Perfect match for the matte lip color. It was silky smooth and glided on without tugging. On its own, also lasted 4-5 hours until I ate. After eating, some color remained along the outer edges of my lips. Retails for $19. It Was not waterproof and transfer resistant despite the company’s claims but it was a nice liner.

The Lip Strobe is a metallic high shine gloss. Angelic is a peachy gold metallic shade. No scent. This is a fairly opaque shade so expect a metallic sheen. On its own, the color is a little too metallic. But over the matte lipcolor, the color is great. It’s not sticky or tacky. This lasted just a couple hours. In fact, once the three pieces were paired together, nothing lasted more than a few hours and did not last through a meal. So that was a little disappointing. Retails for $18.

This set retails for $25. It contains a full size of the lip pencil and half sizes of the gloss and matte lip color. I really like these. Every thing went together perfectly and could be worn on its own. I would recommend these kits. In fact, I’ve already ordered another color. Stay tuned!
