I must confess, I was expecting the Huda Beauty Diamond Balms to be a little garish and unwearable, but I couldn’t have been more wrong! They are super subtle and super pretty. I have six shades here to show you. Enjoy!

If you like to look at a bit of sparkle then the packaging of these balms will totally appeal to you! They are so pretty! But don’t be scared if you hate glitter in makeup – the level of bling doesn’t translate on to the lips in the same way, so everything is ok!

What is Huda Beauty Diamond Balm?

Because they are super sheer, I thought it might be useful to show them on my lips. The lighter shades are all very, very similar on my skin tone and I think you would have to be very discerning to be able to tell them apart, especially in the images.

However, in real life, Negligee is my favourite. Can you tell the difference?

Also, the packaging is really cute.

  1. Honest opinion, do you think these are overpriced or worth the hype? I’ve always wanted to try out her matte lipsticks but I haven’t heard much hype around her lipsticks full stop. Does it feel like a lip balm on your mouth and can you feel the glitter rubbing on your lips? Loved this review x

    1. they feel like lip balms, I can’t feel any glitter at all. I was expecting something a bit crunchy. If you want something really sparkly, you might not think these are enough as it is very subtle and looks more juicy than glittery xx
