Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Review | Trendsetter & Icon


When we got to Dubai, I couldn't wait to get to Sephora to and try some of Huda Beauty's products. I've been following Huda Kattan and her blog, hudabeauty.com for years, so knowing that I could easily access her products was so exciting to me. I had seen so many swatches of her liquid lipsticks as well as bloggers raving about her false eyelashes. I looked up some swatches and immediately knew that 'Trendsetter' was exactly the lip colour I go for- a mix between a nude and a deep mauve colour.

When we got to Sephora, and after swatching, testing and swatching even more, I found myself unable to decide on a shade. I loved Trendsetter, but there were other shades that I found myself gearing towards too. A lovely lady came up to me and asked whether I had tried Icon, and recommended that it would suit me. I had never seen this shade before, but in the lipstick it looked like a coral/pink shade, one that I usually don't go for.  I was so surprised as coral/pink shades don't usually suit me and I tend to steer away from them. I ended up picking both Trendsetter and Icon - and a pair of her false lashes in Samantha. I figured I would be using Trendsetter on a more daily basis- or nights out where I want my lipstick to last all night, and Icon on more special occasions where I don't do a heavy eye but focus on the lips.

The formula of these liquid lipsticks are amazing. Comparing to other lipsticks like Kylie lip kit's- they smell very similar, they have that vanilla/caramel scent that's a bit stronger than how Mac lipsticks originally smelt. The application on these are smooth and you only need a little bit that goes a long way. I find that I don't tend to use lip liner when I apply liquid lipstick because I have more control of where I apply the liquid lipstick and the precision is easier. When I first tried Trendsetter, we were going to dinner straight after so I thought it would be great to put the lipstick to test. Throughout eating, drinking and having dessert, the lipstick stayed on like no other, it was incredible. I highly recommend trying these out, as these are now available here, in Harrods stores and Harrods.com online (UK), as well as Sephora.com.

What do you think of these liquid lipsticks? X
