Yesterday, Huda Kattan was forced to reveal that she will be launching an exclusive holiday palette at the end of the month. The former Bazaar cover star took to Instastory to share that she had no choice but to announce the news prematurely after someone leaked the information to the public.
The beauty mogul expressed her upset on social media about how it was unfair that those involved – potentially Sephora employees, according to Huda – shared the secret before her team, who have been working hard on the new collection, were able to announce their exciting new feat. Huda later posted the entire collection – swatches and all - on her blog, revealing a gorgeous, ethereal winter palette, complete with luminescent highlighter palette and mini lip strobe set.

Aptly named the Winter Solstice Collection, the luminescent highlighter palette is a wintery take on the brand’s existing highlighter and has been “reformulated white pearls that have a stunning duochrome finish and even smoother, butter-like application. The formula was really important so we spent ages in the lab to ensure a creamy formula that would give intense luminosity and flawless blendability – I’m so obsessed with the final result,” Huda announces on her blog. The highlighter comes in four shades: Frosted Kiss, Artic Glow, Northern Lights and Winter Rose.
“Who doesn’t love a mini set?!” Huda writes about the mini lip strobe set. “We matched-up each lip strobe with one of the highlighter shades, which I love and is something we’ve never done before.” Charmed, Bewitched, Starcrossed and Hypnotic are the four matching lippies that will be released with the rest of the Winter Solstice Collection on 27 October.
We can’t wait.
