Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set

Happy Sunday! Kind of a lazy day today, rainy, we’re all planning to stay home and make rice krispy treats. πŸ™‚ I have some spare time to write a review about Huda Beauty’s Lip Contour Set. First let me say I love the brand Huda Beauty… Such a high quality brand and worth every expensive penny. Their eyeshadow palette are to die for, love them. This is my first experience with their lip products. Anyways it wasn’t too expensive for the 2 mini liquid mattes & pencil, it will run you $20-25 depending where you pick it up. It’s a nice set if you’re unsure of what the turn out might be. You don’t need to spend so much just to try it out for the first time.

On the back of the packaging there’s a guide to show you how to apply sort of an ombre look. However, I tried, it all kind of looked like the same shade. πŸ˜› I’m sure some of you can nail it better than moi.

I still think it looks awesome regardless, also the liquid mattes have sort of a vanilla frosting scent/taste to them, which I find pleasing.

It is a liquid matte so it takes a few moments to dry and not smudge. It does have a long lasting effect and won’t rub off too easily. There are so many liquid matte’s that feel yucky on my lips, Huda’s liquid mattes are decent, it doesn’t bother me like others and I feel comfortable wearing it for a few hours. πŸ˜€

Thanks for reading! xx

Hey, hey!! We’re in the thick of fall, Halloween is next week, most of the leaves have changed to those gorgeous reds, yellows, and oranges, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, unless you’re Canadian you’ve already had that delicious turkey. πŸ˜‰ Fall and winter are some of the best seasons for makeup. It’s time to break out those reds am I right?

I’ve broken out of my shell just a smidgen, I’ve began to wear more red toned lippies. Nails no problem I’m all over it but I do get shy when it comes to red lips… why is that?
Anyways that’s neither here nor there let’s start off with nails. These are a variety of reds that have really stood out to me.
