They’re only slightly late but hey, better late than never is what we say. Huda Beauty is launching their LIMITED EDITION Summer 2017 Collection on Tuesday. 7.18! The collection consists of a Summer Highlighter Palette in Solstice ($45) & four new Liquid Lipsticks ($20 each). The collection will be available on Huda’s website, Cult Beauty & Harrods (likely to be released @ Sephora later, definitely in stores in August).
The highlighter palette includes 3 powder highlighters (in the shades Malibu – the rose gold, champagne, Mykonos – the straight up purple & Copacabana – the soft pink) and 1 cream highlighter (in the shade Saint-Tropez – the yellowish gold). The formula is said to be just the same as their previous highlighter palettes. This is a bit of a twist on your typical strobing palette – mainly because of that purple! It is FIRE! Keep in mind, once it’s blended out, it certainly won’t appear quite this strong and intense but will totally still pull purple. In other words, it’s dope but won’t work for everyone. The other shades are much more wearable and suit all skin tones. But tell me this – have highlighter palettes sort of run their course?! Has it all be done?? Do any of us really want or even need another one?? I’m not sure I’m on board for more of these launches that we all feel like we’ve seen 100 times before.
These lipsticks, though, I can get down with. There will be four new Liquid Lipstick shades in Bikini Babe, Jetsetter, Wild Child, & Mamacita. Not pictured here is the INCREDIBLE packaging these come in – like, the kind of packaging that makes you want to purchase it just for that reason alone. Bikini Babe is veryyyyyy nude but definitely leans peachy brownish. I suuuuuuper dig it. Jetsetter isn’t really anything to write home about but is super wearable. Maybe the kind of lip you’d rock to work or a date night! Wild Child didn’t appear to come off super pigmented when applied but honestly, that is perfect for a shade like this! It’s a bit more on the bold side but applying a shade like this is WAY easier when the pigmentation isn’t too intense. This is such a quintessential summer color! And lastly, Mamacita is that super trendy orangey-fiery red we all LOVE right now. It’s a no-brainer – it’s stunning. BOLD, but stunning. What do you guys think of the formula of these?! We’d love to know!
