So there was a bit of hype when these launched in Dubai. By 'a bit' I mean there was a massive line snaking around Sephora in Dubai Mall when they initially went on sale and they sold out within hours. I managed to grab only one in another Sephora and I practically snatched it out of the sales assistants hand as she was heading over with it to show a group of teenagers. Snooze you lose kids.
I then picked up 4 more in a Sephora US haul (post here if you fancy a nosy) and have finally gotten round to posting about them. It's going to be a short post because there is only so much you can say about lip liner. I believe these are about to be restocked so grab one whilst you can because I really do like the formula.
The formula is waxy and very easy to use. The point can snap quite easily though but that could be because Dubai has such a warm climate and they possibly soften during the day when I don't have my air con on. I liken the formula to the Marc Jacobs liners, the Charlotte Tilbury liners and some of the MAC Pro Longwear liners. They don't drag on the lips or move about-once they're on, they're on.
Liners are drying, it's a fact-I have never come across a 'hydrating' liner but luckily these aren't hideously drying. I also find that if I line and fill my lips with one of these and then put lipstick over, the wear time increases dramatically. At least doubles.
So I am a fan. I find myself using Gossip Gurl and Bombshell the most but all of them are wearable and could be used as a lipstick. As you can see from my 'lined and filled in' lips below, the finish is quite a luminous matte.
Have you tried any of the Huda Beauty Lip Contours? Are any on your wishlist?
