Have’nt heard about Huda Kattan? Are you kidding me or living under beauty rock? Well Huda is someone most of the bloggers look upto. She has this amazing range of products by the name HUDA BEAUTY
We all know that Huda beauty products are beautiful both quality vise and packaging vise. I had the complete lip contour collection and I loved it. But I did not try the liquid lippies yet. While my visit to Sephora Qatar recently I picked this Lip Contour set. I loved it for two reasons. First, look at the packaging. This beautiful picture of Huda herself. Second I got two minis in my favorite shades- Vixen and Famous and a lip contour in shade Vixen. These are two perfect shades for this festive/fall/holiday season. Let us see how did I find these minis.
CLAIMS (as per official website)
Take your lip looks to the next level with the Lip Contour Set. It features full sizes of the cult-favorite Lip Contour along with two mini Liquid Mattes in complementary shades, you can mix and match for unrivaled staying power.

I love matte liquid lipsticks. I feel they look great on all. And ofcourse liquid lipsticks are so in these days. Lets talk about all three inside the contour kit one by one.
LIP CONTOUR in SHADE VIXEN
I have used all the shades from lip contour range before. And I have to say I love them. They glide on the lips very easily. You can use them alone to fill the lips or as lip liners also. The color pay off is insane and they give an intense matte finish. I love the formula of this pencil. It is not streaky at all. I can wear it comfortably for long. It stays for long. You just need a little touch up after meal. Vixen is described as a deep brown and is a warm, red-toned brown on the lips. It is available separately and there are eight other colours in the range which retail for $19 each.
The liquid lipsticks by Huda are claimed to be the most comfortable liquid lipsticks ever. The formula is non drying. They are long wear. They settle into a complete matte finish. They are have intense pigmentation and give opaque application in just one swipe. They are claimed to dry in 30 seconds but no they take a little longer for drying completely. You have to keep your lips apart till they have dried completely or else they will stick and become patchy. They are also claimed to be transfer proof. But here I don’t agree much. For me they do transfer a little. If after drying it put my fingers it does get a stain.
I did feel a little dryness after few hours. But it was not uncomfortable. They are really light weight. The formula is really thin. They have a mild scent of vanilla which I personally like a lot. They are totally waterproof and you need a good makeup remover to take them off.
They have a great shade range. I got FAMOUS and VIXEN in the contour kit. Famous is a deep red quite vampy shade. and Vixen is a deep brown. I find them perfect for fall!
