Huda Beauty recently released a new line of lip products called Lip Strobes and today, I am going to be talking about and swatching 6 of the shades out of the range
Huda Beauty Lip Strobe Description/Review
The Huda Beauty Lip Strobes are glossy lip toppers that can be worn alone or on top of liquid lipstick to create a metallic effect. They come in multiple shades and each shade contains 4 ml (0.14 fluid ounces) of product, has a shelf life of 12 months and is made in Italy.
The formula is fairly pigmented depending on the shade and applies beautifully to the lips. There are two ways you can apply them over other liquid lipsticks- by dabbing them on or blending them completely into the lips (just like you apply lip products that are not toppers). Obviously when you apply them alone you wipe them fully in, but when you are putting them over another product you do have two choices– to either dab it onto certain bits or fully wipe it in to change/modify the lip colour.
Something I thought would be important to add is that because these go over liquid lipstick’s, when you are applying them over the top, the doe-foot applicator will get a tonne of excess colour on it. This is reduced when you wait for the under colour to dry down fully (if you are using a matte shade), but some colour will still transfer.
Just make sure that after you apply them, you swipe the applicator on your arm/hand to get the excess colour off the tip before dipping it back into the product. If the colour doesn’t come fully out, just wipe the tip over a makeup wipe. You want to make sure you are cleaning the applicator before you put it back into the product because if you don’t, colour might transfer from the tip into the actual liquid product and then the next time you apply the topper it could leave unwanted colour on the lips.
Even after you have swiped the tip and ran a makeup wipe over it, the tip might still be tinted a bit but if you swipe it on your arm and no product comes out, it’s clean.
All in all, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the Huda Beauty Lip Strobes! They are hands down the best lip toppers I have ever tried, and I totally recommend picking some up!!
The Huda Beauty Lip Strobes cost $23.05 AUD – $18.00 USD – each and can be purchased from Huda Beauty Online, Cult Beauty and Sephora
Now let’s go over the applicator quality and then move on to the shades and swatches babes!!!
The Applicators in the Huda Beauty Lip Strobes are curvy, diamond doe-foot applicators. The tip is flat on both sides and fits into the lips perfectly. I absolutely love the applicators, they work amazingly with the product and a good doe-foot that works with the formula is needed to get a pigmented finish, which you do with these.
Shades + Swatches
I am going to swatch 6 shades out of the Lip Strobe range.
I am going to swatch each shade by itself, and then I am going to swatch each shade over the light matte liquid lipstick called Crush by Huda. I am going to use the same under-shade so that you can get a better sense of how the lip topper looks over a matte liquid lipstick, and I thought a light nude shade would be best for that. Thennnnnnnn I decided that as well as doing swatches of them over a light nude shade, I would also do them over a pink shade so you can see how they go even more! For the pink shade I chose Gossip Gurl by Huda.
For reference, I will show you swatches of Crush and Gossip Gurl alone so that you can see the difference. I will also have a swatch comparison at the end that will help you see the difference more clearly.
