The Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencil is available from Sephora ($19) and Cult Beauty (£16) and is constantly out of stock because it has been raved about beyond belief. After countless Instagram posts and YouTuber reviews I succumbed to the mayhem when Cult Beauty announced that they had all the shades back in stock. Predictably, I grabbed the two nudest shades of the nine up for grabs: Trendsetter (pinkish nude) and Bombshell (a brown nude). I have had them for a few weeks now and feel I can confidently share my honest opinion about this popular product.
The Lip Contours claim to have an intense colour pay-off; a long-wearing, matte finish and be waterproof and transfer-proof. If you follow my blog then you'll know lip products are not my favourite, like highlighters I find them to be unnecessary. A good lip balm or sheer wash of colour will suffice. I was feeling extra fancy one day and thought I would rock a lip contour to a training day I had in the City Centre for work. I found the formula to be very drying on my lips, but this is most likely due to how unused to matte lip products I am. What disappointed me the most was that it was not transfer-proof at all. I sipped on a chai latte and the lip contour went everywhere, so mortifying.
In conclusion, it's not worth the hype at all. I thought this would be everything I would ever need in a lip product. Matte. Long-lasting. Transfer-proof. The kind of lip product that you could put on and just forget about but this wasn't the case at all. It transferred so easily and I was extremely aware of it on my mouth throughtout the day and even though it all but disappeared halfway through the day my lips were so dry I was embarrassed to be seen in public. I wouldn't recommend this product unless you are happy to keep reapplying throughout the day. I would suggest keeping a lip balm with you at all times. The colours are gorgeous so I will use them again but only when I won't be drinking, eating or even talking much. Maybe just to get my Passport photo taken.
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. Have you tried the Huda Beauty Lip Contours? Did you like them, did you find them to be drying or comfortable to wear? I know the Liquid Mattes have just been released in Sephora and I am certainly curious to see how they compare. I hope they are transfer proof.
