Happy Monday my pumpkins! Today, I am sharing with you my Huda Beauty throwback lip kit review. This whole collection is meant to reminisce on 90s makeup hence why it is called “throwback” and I love it! I absolutely love this collection and as soon as it came out, I had to have my hands on any of the bullet lipsticks.
If you want to know my honest opinion on this lip kit then keep on reading! Also, don’t forget to check out my previous post: REVIEW // Flex Highlighter by Milk Makeup
Huda Beauty Throwback lip kit review
This lip kit retails for 34$ but values for 44$ and contains one full-size lip liner and one full-size power bullet matte lipstick. The kit comes in two shades: “H.B.I.C + Board Meeting” (which is the one I have) and “Partner in Crime + Girls Trip”.
Sephora claims that this lip kit is “inspired by Huda’s latest obsessions with the retro vibes of the 90’s, take your lip game to the next level with these amazing matte acrylic, lip-shaped kits. They’re the perfect gift for lipstick lovers.
The power bullet lipstick is described as very pigmented, comfortable, smooth and full coverage with one swipe only. While the lip contour is described as easy to glide, pigmented and matte.
This product is of course cruelty-free and is available at Sephora!
The packaging of this product is out of this world. First of all, the lip liner and lipstick comes in the most beautiful lip-shaped box ever. It definitely feels expensive and high-end and i love the details inside the box. Second of all, I absolutely love how the bullet lipstick looks like. I love the square shape and ombré look, I think it makes the lipstick look more “luxurious”. Moreover, the name of the brand was carved on the lipstick which I absolutely love it and the cap is kind of magnetic which I think is really cool.
The lip liner has a pretty regular packaging: all black with the colour of the shade on the bottom. It’s definitely the lipstick that stands out in this kit!
The formula is another major positive thing in this review. Like the claims, the lip liner applies very easily and evenly on the lips and it is extremely pigmented and long-lasting.
The lipstick has the most comfortable velvety formula. I love how pigmented it is and how easily it applies on the lips. Moreover for a regular lipstick, it is pretty long-lasting.
Together, I think they absolutely look gorgeous. In fact, the lip liner is slightly darker which I love because you can easily create the signature 90s look where the outline of your lips is dark and inside of your lip is lighter.
On a side note, the lipstick does have an artificial scent which is not unpleasant to the senses but that is present. Nevertheless, the scent does not linger on your lips or is overpowering.
Conclusion – Huda Beauty throwback lip kit review 10/10
To conclude, I really love this lip kit. For the price, I think it’s totally worth it and it makes a perfect gift for makeup lovers as the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. I would 100% recommend it especially the power bullet lipstick. If you don’t feel like buying the whole set, I think the lipstick is totally worth it! Overall, this lip kit definitely reminds me of the 90s and I love it!
