When I saw that Huda Beauty was releasing a Winter Solstice collection I pretty much lost it. So far I’ve resisted almost all of the highlighter palettes in this sort of icy, holographic family but I couldn’t pass this one up. I had never tried anything from Huda Beauty so I was pretty excited to test this collection out!
This palette was love at first sight. Immediately after I received the palette in the mail I went to town on my face and was wowed. My jaw dropped. These highlighters are BEAMING. These may be my favorite highlighters of all time!
There are three powder highlighters and one cream. The cream, Frosted Kiss, is definitely subtle but it’s designed to wear under the powder highlighters to make them more intense. I tested that method out and I did notice that it amped up my highlight! Arctic Glow is a pale blue with a purple-ish undertone. On the cheekbones it appeared much more neutral than I was expecting and it’s a very intense highlight. It’s stunning paired with a cool toned eye and lip! Northern Lights also surprised me. When I swatched it, it appeared verrrry yellow gold so I wasn’t sure if it would work out for me. But on the cheeks it appears much more neutral! It’s such a blinding highlight on my pale skin and I LOVE it. Winter Rose is a beautiful frosty rose with a pale pink shift. This is the darkest of the four. I’ve been using it as a blush topper and it gives a beautiful flushed look.
The second part of the Winter Solstice collection is the mini lip strobe set! These also wowed me. So much that I need backups. Each shade in the lip set was created to match the shades from the highlighter palette! Now you can glow from your cheekbones to your lips 😉
I looove the formula of these. They’re buttery on the lips and so flattering. Since the shimmer is extremely fine, it makes the glosses very reflective and shiny. I have worn them alone and over lipstick as a topper. Both ways are stunning!
Huda Beauty blew me away with this collection! I can’t believe I had never tried anything from the line before! This collection is limited edition and now available at Sephora!
