The Wishful x Huda Beauty Silk Balm Honey Kiss Plumping Lip Balm is an exciting new launch for Huda Beauty’s skincare brand; Wishful, as it’s the first ever collaboration between Huda Kattan’s makeup brand and her skincare brand.
I was really excited about this new version of the Huda Beauty Silk Balm, as I absolutely love the original version (read my review right here), and I love anything honey scented or themed when it comes to beauty products, so I couldn’t wait to give it a try.
“Taking major inspo from WISHFUL & Huda’s fave skincare ingredient, Silk Balm has had a sweet update! It’s packed with the same key ingredients as our OG formula (soybean, licorice, and hyaluronic acid) plus organic AND manuka honey for a super nourished pout.
The lip-loving formula keeps lips SO hydrated & silky smooth while giving you a plump, high-shine finish! The application is also everything – it’s totally addictive! It feels SO good on the lips & the subtle sweet honey scent will make you want to apply again & again (& again!).“
The Wishful x Huda Beauty Silk Balm Honey Kiss Plumping Lip Balm is £18, and has the same pretty packaging as the original Silk Balm Liquid Lip Balm.
With a clear plastic tube, with a pink iridescent finish, which changes colour in the light, and the tube has a subtle golden hue to complement the honey theme of the balm.
Again, like the original, the Wishful x Huda Beauty Silk Balm Honey Kiss Plumping Lip Balm has a rounded, doefoot applicator.
I really like the applicator on the original, as the rounded edges means it does a great job at evenly coating the lips in balm, without applying too much balm, and if you apply it over a lip colour, the rounded edges don’t disturb the lip colour already on the lips.
On the lips, Wishful x Huda Beauty Silk Balm Honey Kiss Plumping Lip Balm is completely clear, just like the original version. I know some wished the formula was a little tinted, but I like that it’s clear as you can apply it morning and night, over any lip product, and it has a delicious sweet honey scent.
If you enjoyed the original formula, you’ll love Honey Kiss, as it’s so smoothing and balmy on the lips. It truly does feel like silk on the lips, and feels like a lip oil, yet it offers the glossy finish of a lip gloss, without any stickiness. It’s a beautiful balm, and I can’t wait to see what other scents and/or colours are launched next.
