I’ve been wanting to try the Huda Beauty Lip Contour lip liners for some time, so I was really happy to see that Bombshell was included within the October edition of the Look Incredible Deluxe Beauty Box. There are so many pretty shades within the Huda Beauty Lip Contour range so I also decided to get Wifey as part of my Huda Beauty haul as it looked like the perfect everyday nude lip liner which I could wear with almost everything.
The Huda Beauty Lip Contour Lip Liners are £16 each from Cult Beauty, and contain 1.2g of product. There are sixteen different shades which is a really extensive range for a lip liner collection and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about the formula.
The original range of the Huda Beauty Lip Contour pencils consisted of just nine shades, but it was extended to the now sixteen shades and there’s a great range of nudes, pinks, berries and deeper shades too. The packaging of the pencils is sleek with matte, black plastic with a colour coded base to reflect the shade inside. The Huda Beauty boxes all have a nice rubberised texture but that texture doesn’t translate onto the pencils themselves.
“Flat lips, thin lips, wide or narrow mouth, uneven shape… balance and beautify your lips with the Huda Beauty Lip contours. Those easy glide lip pencils are very easy to use and provide an intense pay-off with matte finish in just a swipe.
Kiss, drink, laugh, dance, live your life confidently, all the colors are waterproof and transfer proof. Sixteen obsessing colors to be used single or combined. Bombshell is a subtle Pinkish Nude, also gorgeous when combined with Trendsetter and Icon.“
The Huda Beauty Lip Contour in Wifey is described as being a ‘delicate pinkish nude‘ whilst Bombshell is seen as being a ‘subtle pinkish nude’ but I’m not sure either of these shades fit their official descriptions.
For me Wifey is a pinky toned light brown and Bombshell is a warm toned medium pink but both shades are undoubtedly very pretty, and the formula is so smooth and creamy on the lips. There’s no dragging whilst they glide across the lips, even when my lips have been exceptionally dry.
Due to their softer formula, the nib does wear down a little quicker than wooden and more firmer lip pencils but these particular shades don’t need a super precise nib as they’re such pretty nude shades.
Wifey reminds me of a slightly browner version of Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk but Wifey can pull more pink when layered underneath a shade like MAC Creme Cup. Bombshell is the perfect 90’s nude shade and both shades work well when worn alone or layered under lip products. I’ll definitely be adding some more shades of the Huda Beauty Lip Contours to my collection as I really like the formula and I prefer them to my MAC Lip Pencils too.
