Huda Kattan is a beauty blogger who now owns one of the biggest beauty brands. I think she’s one of the firsts who had her own products. Youtubers are raving about this product and I was excited to try it out. Her brand is famous for her liquid lipsticks and lashes.

description from Sephora.com
I got mine from the Sephora Give Me More Lip kit so I didn’t really buy it at full price but as I checked in sephora.com, it costs $20. I also checked shoppee for prices in the local market and it ranges from 650-1900 pesos (personally doubting the 650 Pesos one because compared to the sephora price that’s way too cheap.) It’s definitely not a drugstore brand so that price is expected.
Fortunately I got this in full size, it comes in a matte frosted glass or acrylic tube with a black cap. It has the huda beauty logo or name in front and you can see through the frosted component and see the actual color of the product. (See photo above)
It has a sweet scent to it, something like a vanilla cupcake which you can smell upon application and until it dries down but for me since it smells like food I don’t mind it. It’s not too potent to be annoying or distracting.
Since the packaging was longer than the usual liquid lipsticks that I have, it comes with a longer doe foot applicator but the actual sponge-y side that disposes the product is actually small than what I’m used to. It was also a bit rounded which can be less precise than the pointed ones. The longer wand also was difficult for me since just like holding a pencil I like to be closer to the tip, the one actually painting my lips.
However, the product itself glides on smoothly. It was a bit watery than the usual but that didn’t really affect the overall application of the product. It’s still fairly easy especially when you’re used to liquid lipsticks.
I needed to dunk in twice to cover my full lips (one dunk for the bottom and another for the upper lip).
I got mine in the shade bombshell which is a subtle pinkish nude. I’m a little skeptical about wearing this because it washes me out a little. It might be too nude for me. But hey color pay off, I can say it’s medium to full coverage. With one swipe it can cover the dark outline that I have on my lips as seen below.
This stays as long as other liquid lipsticks. It stays put and does not transfer until you eats. This is working just like your average liquid lipstick.
True to the description, this does feel lightweight at first and is not drying. However, upon wearing it for a few hours, I felt that it got a bit tacky when I purse my lips. It wasn’t something that would bother me but I just had to put it out there.
Overall, this works just like any other liquid lipstick except that this doesn’t dry out your lips. Powdering it up when it gets tacky would probably do the trick if you are bothered by that feeling. This may be a little pricey though especially when tax and shipping would be included.
