Plus, how to pick up a free lipstick with your purchase.
Boots have just added another exciting beauty brand to their growing roster – Instagram favourite Huda Beauty.
The brand has been available in Ireland for a few years now at Arnotts and Brown Thomas, but you can now shop the range on Boots.ie (and maybe use some of those saved-up Boots points).
To mark the launch, customers who buy two Huda Beauty products online will get a free lipstick while stocks last, which ain’t a bad little deal.
Interested to know more about Huda? Let’s talk through some of our favourite releases from the brand so far.
Huda’s big palettes are nice, but her mini Obsessions palettes are a better bet, in our opinion. They’re small enough to pop in a makeup bag, and the colour stories are absolutely gorgeous – the Neon Green will please the more experimental among us, while the Topaz palette is made for warm-toned eyeshadow lovers.
No one really shouts about this product so we will: Tantour is LEGIT, and the product that made contouring ‘click’ for this STELLAR staffer. The tiniest bit of this cream bronzer gives you enviable bone structure, and blends out like an absolute dream. It’s also the rare contouring product that caters to deeper skin tones, which is always great to see.
These were the first products Huda Beauty launched way back in the day, and still some of her best. However, if you’re into a more natural look, these are not for you. They’re for lash devotees who can handle the kind of drama they bring to a look. Just warning you.
We love the concept of these dual-ended liquid eyeshadows – as the name suggests, one side is matte, and the other a complementary metallic shade, meaning it’s almost too easy to create a nice look. The shades are intense but easy to blend, and range from the fun (mint, lilac, cherry red) to the wearable (nudes, pinks, and browns).
Huda is known for her matte liquid lipsticks and Strobe glosses, but the secret weapon is in fact the lip pencils, which are creamy and longwearing. If you’re looking for your ‘my lips but better’ shade, you could very well start here.
