Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencil Trophy Wife Review, Swatches: Hello my pretties! Hope you all are having a FABULOUS day! Today I shall be talking about a product that I was super excited for! So I saw that Huda Beauty was coming out with Lip Contours that claimed to have super amazing lasting power and would help lips look fuller and plumper. Sounds amazing doesn’t it?! I knew I had to have it! Now since the initial launch was in the Middle East, I couldn’t get my hands on it, but when I heard it was launching on Sephora’s website, I was ecstatic!
There was so much drama around the release time for these lip contours. Sephora wasn’t announcing a time and on the website it kept showing as sold out! People were losing their minds. I was keeping a close eye on their snapchat waiting for the news. Finally it went live and I decided to order the shade Trophy Wife! Let’s see if this lip contour actually lived up to the claim!
About Huda Beauty Lip Contour
What it is
A line of easy-glide contouring and filling lip pencils featuring intense color payoff and a matte finish.
What it does
Balance and beautify your lips with the Lip Contour Matte Lip Pencil to address flat lips, thin lips, wide or narrow mouth, or uneven shape. These easy-glide lip pencils are simple to use and provide an intense payoff with a matte finish in a single swipe. Each shade is waterproof and transfer-proof and can be used alone or combined for the perfect lip look.
What else you need to know
“They are literally the only thing I am using on my lips at the moment. The glide and payoff is so perfect and long lasting. They fit ideally in my mini bag too! My favorite combos are Trendsetter used as a contour plus Bombshell as a highlighter or Famous and Trophy Wife. But when I want to add drama to my look, I use Vixen combined with Famous.”—Huda Kattan, Brand Founder
Every shade reacts uniquely, depending on your skin tone. Check the swatch details for further indication but there will be some color variation on your lips.
How to Use Huda Beauty Lip Contour
- Define your lips marking your cupid’s bow and lining the center-bottom of the lower lip. Carry on drawing from the center to the corners of the mouth. To upgrade your lip size and fake a lip job, slightly over line the cupids bow and bottom center of the lips. Fill in with the same color.
- Apply a darker Lip Contour following the exact same outlined shape. Insist on the inner corners of the mouth to create depth and draw a vertical line in the center of your lips to add some 3D effect. Blend the two shades pressing a tissue on your lips or using a hint of lip balm.
- Correct or downplay full lips using a concealer matching your foundation shade.

In Detail Huda Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencil Trophy Wife Review, Swatches and My Experience
Now I was super excited for the launch of these. Although I knew they were essentially a fancy lip liner but I was more interested in the long wear claim and the color Trophy Wife looked gorgeous on Instagram so I settled on it. I was confused between Icon and this so I just went for this, thinking I would just buy icon later!
Huda Kattan herself said she wanted to come out with a lip product that would withstand eating and drinking because she personally faced this issue herself, where she would eat up her lipstick whilst eating. So she made sure this had impressive lasting power!
I can’t even explain how DISAPPOINTED I am with this product! It is literally just an over hyped lip liner. It’s so drying on the lips, and isn’t creamy at all, like the Kylie Lip kit one. The product doesn’t feel good on the lips nor is the lasting power all that great! This was such a fail! I’m so glad I only got one and I barely reach for it. In fact I feel the product drying inside the pencil itself and it’s only been a couple of months! Also the color looked completely different on me so I wasn’t too thrilled about that either =/
Wear test of Huda Beauty Lip Contour Trophy Wife
After 2 hours
(Inclusive of eating and drinking) – It started flaking off the centre almost immediately and in 2 hours, it was already gone from the inner center.
After 4 hours
(Inclusive of eating and drinking) – Its so patchy and uneven. I wanted to wipe it off because it was so uncomfortable

1. Moisturise your lips well before applying the Huda Beauty Lip Contours.
2. Use it like a lip liner rather than a lip color for all over
I just felt like I wasted money on an overhyped product. So glad I only bought one shade so not much damage was one. I would definitely not recommend this to anyone!
Hope this review was helpful! Feel free to ask any further questions. Have you tried this product? Let me know your thoughts!
Have a great day beautiful 🙂
I was glad i came across your review on Huda Beauty lip products. I too was carried away with the claims that was made for make up products …and i was really thinking of getting one of those liquid lipsticks. But somehow my inner mind was giving me a second thought ! There are lots of reasons of having this second thought. Anyway i’m glad that there is someone thinking like me .
I dont think this product will run long. Its short lived .
All the best for your blog. And i wish you all success.
