Huda Beauty Lip Contour Pencils: Worth the Hype?

Huda Lip Contour 1

So, Huda Kattan, an absolutely gorgeous beauty aficionado, has been all over social media lately.  She just released Huda Beauty Matte Lip Contour pencils- most colors sold out the first day at Sephora.  But, are they all they’re cracked up to be?

Huda Beauty Matte Lip Contour pencils are purported to be an easy-glide formula with intense color payoff in a single swipe.  They can be used to line, contour, or fill in the entire lip.  These pencils are supposed to be waterproof and transfer-proof, and can be used alone or combined.

I got the shades Icon and Vixen.  Icon is described as a classy peachy pink, while Vixen is a “poisonous” deep brown.  Let me just start off by saying both shades are absolutely beautiful- so much so that now I want more of these.

I was really intrigued by the fact that many people seem to be using these in place of lipstick, so I tried them out by coloring in my entire lips.  While they don’t go on as smoothly as the Starlooks liner I recently fell in love with, they do seem to be a bit more pigmented.  There were differences between the two shades, though.  Icon had a smoother application, while Vixen tended to drag more.    Vixen also seemed to be a tiny bit patchy, but this may be because it’s darker, and it was easily remedied by exfoliating prior to application.

Both colors lasted without any bleeding, and wore very nicely without drying my lips out a lot.  I pressed my lips to my arms after using, and they did transfer a bit right at first.  However, after the color set, I didn’t notice any transfer.  The formula is indeed long-lasting, and only really came off when I ate some hot wings- but I don’t know of anything that can outlast those!

Overall, the Huda Beauty Matte Lip Contour Pencils are fabulous, and Icon, especially, is absolutely worth the hype.  I’ll definitely be getting more of these!
