So, the winter is coming. Luckily for Huda Beauty fans, that means the unveiling of the icy Winter Solstice collection. The collection, includes four new lip glosses and four new highlighters, with a serious Ice Queen vibe.
First up, highlighters. We are talking jumbo pastel pigments with frosty finishes here. In a series of swatches on three different skin tones, you can see the full effects of the glow, definitely not for the diffident. There’s Frosted Kiss, a frosty shade of baby pink; Arctic Glow, a blueish shade that looks like a refined cold snap on lighter skin tones and almost like a mermaid hue on darker tones; Northern Lights, a surprisingly sunny hue with just the right amount of shimmer; and Winter Rose, a luxuriantly pigmented rose gold that reminds us a bit of curling up by the fire.
Then there are the snow bunny-worthy glosses, which come in balancing shades. There’s Charmed, which looks petal pink on the lightest skin tones and exaggerates to a deeper rose gold on darker tones; Bewitched, a not-for-the-faint-of-heart ice blue shade; Starcrossed, a nude shade with golden yellow undertones; and Hypnotic, which looks like a refined iridescent sheen on lighter tones and straight up purple on darker skin tones. Have a look on the swatches below.
It may still be fall season, but Huda beauty’s (limited-edition!) Winter Solstice collection drops on October 27 at Sephora and Shophudabeauty.com.
