Hey everyone, I’m coming at you today with what I think is a really exciting makeup post: my haul from the Huda Beauty eyeshadow masterclass I mentioned in last week’s wrap up! I’ve missed a couple of items out due to them being presents (just in case), but everything you see here is what I picked up for myself, either through buying, goodie bags or offers. Keep reading for the lowdown on what I got and maybe even a swatch or two!
So first up we have the Demi Matte Cream Lipstick in Catwalk Killa, which I got in my goodie bag because I paid for a ticket as I was planning on picking up a couple of presents, as I mentioned earlier. (Also, can we take a moment to appreciate that it’s a full-sized lipstick, like it’s normally worth £18). I was really pleased with this colour as it looked like a really interesting purple-mauve type of colour and I also know I like the demi-matte formula from a previous masterclass that we did with them.
In terms of the applicator, it’s a nice smaller size and I think that the shape is really useful for when you’re trying to define your cupid’s bow. I also think that it’s good for distributing the product really evenly.
Now onto the swatches! The arm swatch I did for you there pulled off that amount of pigmentation in just one swipe(!!), so I was pretty blown away. It seemed to be like this gorgeous berry colour and when I put it on my lips I absolutely loved how it looked; I think it suits me so well. The colour glided on really easily and I didn’t need to dip back in to get the coverage I wanted so I was really impressed; it also looks really cute blotted right down as it gives you the effect of a gorgeous vampy lip tint. It’s really comfortable and refreshing to wear, and it’s supposed to be plumping, which I think it definitely is (it’s got the tingle haha). What I will say is that obviously since it doesn’t dry down fully it does transfer a little but the colour remains beautiful and vibrant. It doesn’t really bother me or feel heavy, it reminds me of like somewhere between a matte lipstick and a full-on lacquer so overall I really like it, especially for days when your lips need a little bit of moisture but you still wanna look fierce!
Now onto the mini that also came in the goodie bag, a Matte Lipstick in Flirt. When I saw this colour I was very excited, as I’m always looking to add new brown nudes to my collection and it looked really cool-toned and flattering in the tube.
In terms of the applicator, it’s obviously a bit smaller due to it being a mini but, like the demi matte and the other full-sized Huda liquid lipsticks I own, it’s a really nice shape for outlining your lips properly and it spreads the product really well. It’s also quite firm, which helps you to be more precise.
Now onto the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the swatches! As you can see it’s a gorgeous and pigmented cool-toned brown nude and it’s safe to say I’m absolutely obsessed with it! I’ve worn it on a fair few occasions already and it lasts really well through eating and drinking etc so I’m really happy with it. It’s the sort of colour that flatters any skin tone and looks stunning on anyone and everyone (see Alya’s tik tok of the event where she applies it for reference) and it’s just my perfect brown nude to be honest!
So next up we have the product I bought myself, which is one of the Matte & Metal Eyeshadows in Limelight and Gold Chains, which goes for £22 but the £10 ticket was redeemable, so technically I got it for £12! I’d wanted one of these for ages just to see what they were like as on my hand they appeared to blend far better than any cream or liquid eyeshadow I’ve ever tried, and when I saw these colours they just spoke to me.
So on the first side we have gold chains, which seems like the perfect green-toned gold. This side has a brush applicator that seems like it would glide across the eye really well and perhaps apply more metallic product that a doe foot might, so I’m really interested to give it a go.
And then we have limelight (love that name, the whole product gives me such corona and lime vibes), which is the matte side, and it just looks like an absolutely stunning matte lime green. The applicator is quite long and flat and it seems quite flexible and it certainly seems to pick up a fair bit of product, so I’ll have to see how I get on (I hate this kind of applicator in lipsticks but it might be the eyeshadow applicator of dreams, who knows?). You’ll have to wait for swatches as I’m definitely going to have to do a full review post on this but I’m definitely very excited to start giving this a go!
And then last but by no means least, we have the Electric Obsessions eyeshadow palette, which was a gift with purchase if you spent a certain amount (a rare deal that I could not miss out on with a good conscience, obviously). We had a few different choices but because I’m me I had to go with the bright one, because it’s the one I’d always wanted.
As you can see the shades themselves look absolutely stunning and right up my alley; there seems to be a nice mix of mattes and metallics so I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in and being as creative as possible with this palette. I’m also going to do a review with this one in the next few weeks so look out for that for the swatches and all that good stuff! I’m very excited to test this one out as I’ve never owned a Huda eyeshadow palette so I have no idea what her formula is like!
And that was my haul from the makeup soc Huda eyeshadow masterclass! The masterclass itself was so much fun and it’s safe to say that I could not wait to whip these products out and swatch them for you all when I got home. I hope you enjoyed reading it; let me know in the comments if you own any of these products/ what you like the look of (and make sure that you’re following me on here and on social media to stay in the loop for the final reviews of the eyeshadows)!
