Hey my loves! As you guys know, I’m OBSESSED with the 90s supermodel era, so much so that we created an entire line of Power Bullet Matte Lipsticks inspired by the 90s; The Throwbacks Collection. Now, we’re taking it one step further with our new Throwback Lip Kits, so you can create the signature 90s lip, aka a sexy lined lip with a lighter lip shade – it was a supermodel staple! The 90s lip is massively trending again and I love how it makes the lips look fuller and more voluptuous. It’s my go-to look right now and it looks dope with everything.
The Throwback Kits
My team and I created two Throwback Lip Kits, and each kit contains a full-size Power Bullet Matte Lipstick from our Throwbacks Collection, plus a deeper shade of our Lip Contour Matte Pencil (also full size). To find the perfect balance between the liner and lipstick, we created two brand new Lip Contour shades:
The Throwback Lip Kit: Partner In Crime & Power Bullet Girls Trip. A warm brown-toned kit for major Cindy vibes, which has our new Partner In Crime Lip Contour in a sexy a rusty pink shade.
The Throwback Lip Kit: HBIC & Power Bullet Board Meeting. A dusty pink-colored lip kit for Claudia Schiffer goals. H.B.I.C. (Head Boss In Charge), is our new rich brown Lip Contour that pairs perfectly with our Board Meeting lipstick.
Our new Lip Contour shades are the same super creamy, easy to apply, long-wearing formula as before, and each kit comes in a matte acrylic lip-shaped case – perfect for gifting (or keeping!).
How I Create The Ultimate 90s Lip
Before applying lipstick, I like to prep the lip to create a clean canvas for flawless application. First, I like to exfoliate my lip with a sugar scrub like the Bite Beauty Agave+ Weekly Lip Scrub,$20, to remove any dead skin that would otherwise make it look patchy, then I hydrate with a lip balm or oil and blot away excess product.
Now that the lip is prepped, line the lip by marking an X on the Cupid’s bow to create definition, then line your bottom and lower lip. For a super 90s feel, you can try to make your lower and upper lip a similar size. Next, grab your Power Bullet and apply an even layer. After the lipstick is applied, you can use a brush to blend the Lip Contour with your lipstick for a more subtle, gradient effect.
The Throwback Lip Kits, $34 each, will launch online and in stores on October 31st at ShopHudaBeauty.com, Sephora, Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Brown Thomas, Arnotts, Cultbeauty.co.uk, and Nykaa.com.
