Anytime news about a multi-purpose makeup product comes out, I jump for joy. As a busy bee who loves makeup but not necessarily the time it takes to beat a full face, I'm always looking for ways to cut corners without compromising my look. Lucky for me and other beauty fans with full schedules like me, there are products dropping left and right that promise to do more than one thing!
From Fenty Beauty's Match Stix Matte Skinstick ($25, Sephora) to Glossier's latest Bubblewrap ($26, Glossier) which operates as a moisturizing lip and eye cream, brands clearly get that we're trying to minimize how much time and space beauty products take up in our lives. Huda Beauty is the latest brand to add multi-purpose makeup to its lineup. Interestingly enough, fans have mixed feelings about this complexion product.
On the official Huda Beauty website, the brand made an even stronger declaration.
"We created five shades to ensure every skin tone has a perfect match, and depending on how dramatic you want to be, you can play with different shades to get the result you want," the brand shared about the shade range. The hues are Fair (a neutral honey shade for fair to light complexions), Light (a soft caramel shade for light to medium complexions), Medium (a neutral mocha shade), Tan (a deep cocoa shade), and Rich (deep mahogany).
Unfortunately, there is no information provided about undertones.
Say it with me: Undertones matter!
Unfortunately, the Huda Beauty article does not specify any undertones. This could present a minor problem for anyone who isn't comfortable with just ordering offline via photos. You'll have to head into your local Sephora to throw yourself a swatch party before buying. At least that provides a reason to head to your favorite shop. ; )
That Sephora trip just might introduce a new Huda Beauty brush into your beauty bag.
Huda Beauty is treating its fans to the new Tantour shades and a double-ended brush! "To make Tantouring super seamless, we created the Huda Beauty Sculpt & Shade Brush," the brush shared. "At one end is a very small, dense brush that’s perfect for applying Tantour exactly where you want it, and at the other end is a large, soft brush so you can easily blend it out."
Fans are getting a multi-purpose makeup product and multi-purpose brush! Woohoo!
Tons of Huda Beauty fans are STOKED about this new product.
By stoked, I mean SUPER FREAKING EXCITED and ready to buy these products like yesterday.
"Oh yasssss. CAN'T WAIT," YouTube beauty influencer, Sienna, wrote. "This brand is making huge progress in such a short time! Congratulations Huda," another shared. "OKAY OKAYYY HUDA IS THEEEE QWEENNNN," another comment reads.
Another fan shared similar sentiments.
"Yes thank you, finally someone understands," one fan wrote. "Bronzer should NOT be used for contouring. The whole point of a contour is to create a shadow. Bronzer warms up the face. I get so irritated when people use the excuse of 'well makeup has no rules' because all that does is give them a cop out for being lazy and looking ridiculous."
Meanwhile, one fan confirmed that she's already been using bronzer to contour her face.
"Not to kill the mood or anything, but I've been contouring with Hoola [Matte Bronzer] ($30, Sephora) for a long time and it looks perfectly OK," she wrote. Ultimately, it's all about what works for you! As long as you're achieving the look you want to achieve, then have at it!
Contour. Bronze. Tantour. Do whatever you want!
Mark your calendars if you're down to Tantour with Huda Beauty!
The Tantour Contour & Bronzer Cream will be available for $30 each while the Sculpt & Shade Brush will be available for $28. They'll launch online on May 8. Those who prefer to swatch them out in person will have to wait until May 17 when they finally hit stores. Fans can also jump on the official waiting list which will alert you as soon as they're available for purchase.
