Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencil Gossip Gurl & Cheerleader
Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencils released in May and were pre-released in Dubai Sephora. The pre-release was crazy and they sold out of all the shades within two days. Sephora official release was also amazing and all popular shades sold out within one day. I could get my hands on two shades of Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencils: Gossip Gurl and Cheerleader. I got both of these shades from different countries, gossip gurl is from Dubai and Cheerleader is form USA S. These retail for $19 each.
Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencils are lip pencils which are designed to provide intense payoff and a matte finish. These can be used just to line the lips or to fill them up. These also claim to be waterproof and transfer-proof.
Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencil looks like regular lip pencils with the brand name written on it with actual shade on the bottom of the pencil. I noticed a difference between the two shades, Gossip gurl (got it from Dubai) doesn’t have the name of the shade written on it while Cheerleader (got it from the USA) has the shade name written on the pencil.
The material of these lip contour pencils do not look like a regular wooden pencil, I am not sure what it is made up of but its very good in quality. The size is shorter than a mac lip pencil.
The tip of these lip pencils is not sharp rather it is round which is not a big issue but you might find it hard to draw precise outline of the lips on the other hand the thick round tip makes it easier to fill the lips. These are targeted towards contouring the lips which is fairly a new trend of lining lips to create dimensions and making them look bigger.
I have tested these few time and the results are absolutely amazing. Here is the video of water test I did with these.
As you can see in the video, these lip pencils just do not go away, even though I tried really hard rubbing them off under the water and these tend to stay no matter what! As our hand skin is not same as our lips, these are not as much water resistant on lips as these are on the hand but that was totally fine by me.
Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencils are definitely water proof which makes them very long lasting as well but if you eat something really oily, it starts to come off from the inner part of the lips.
The major issue I have with almost all the matte lip products is that they tend to make my lips dry. I won’t say Huda Beauty Lip Contour Pencils are hydrating but these surely do not make my lips as dry as other matte products do. When I wear it for a long time like for more than 6 hours, at the end of the day I do feel a bit of dryness and the dryness tend to increase when I wore it for 6 to 7 hours for 2 to 3 days consecutively.
When it comes to pigmentation, these are immensely pigmented and one strike is enough to cover the desired area. Even though these are ultra pigmented, these do not feel heavy on the lips and literally, it feels as if you are not wearing anything at all. High pigmentation of Huda Beauty Matte lip Contour Pencils makes it easy to over draw the lips. It dries off immediately within few seconds and once it dries, it gets super difficult to remove.
Overall, you get highly pigmented, long lasting & transfer proof lips with minor dryness. I really like these and would recommend it to all of you.
