Step into a time machine, and let’s rewind to the ’90s—a decade marked by grunge, punk rock, and unapologetic rebellion. In an era of flannel shirts, Dr. Martens boots, and smudged eyeliner, a unique aesthetic emerged. Today, as the ’90s revival sweeps the fashion and beauty world, it’s time to take a closer look at the Pretty Grunge Collection—a limited edition series from Huda Beauty (Instagram) that effortlessly melds grunge with glam.
Grunge fashion and beauty have always had that ‘devil-may-care’ attitude. Now, imagine fusing that spirit with high-octane glamour. The result? A bold, iconic look that’s equal parts rebellious and alluring. The Pretty Grunge Collection offers an eyeshadow palette, face gloss, mini Liquid Matte Lipsticks, and a Lip Gloss duo, letting you unleash beautiful chaos wherever you go.
The heart of the collection is the eyeshadow palette—a versatile canvas of 18 ultra-pigmented, wearable shades with a range of textures. From chrome metallics to shiny shimmers and velvety mattes, this palette empowers you to create everyday looks or embrace bold statements that command attention. Whether you’re channeling sultry, sexy vibes or want to explore innovative contrasts, this palette has you covered. Decadent shades provide the edge to define and shape your eyes, while innovative chrome and creamy metallics deliver a mesmerizing shimmer. The black gloss shade adds sultriness, making your grunge eye smolder.
In the world of grunge beauty, it’s not always about bold, graphic statements. It’s about blending, letting the colors flow, and achieving a carefree, lived-in look. Experiment with light matte shades for softer, daytime grunge, and layer on metallics for added intensity. For a bolder impact, indulge in mattes and melted metallic shades that crank up the intensity.
The collection’s Face Gloss creates grunge transformations through the power of highlighting. This limited-edition gloss features a sheer, multi-use formula that bestows an effortless luminous sheen on your lips and cheeks. Grunge meets ‘Punk Pink.’ Formulated with pH-Bloom, this gel gloss appears clear but morphs into a subtle ‘Punk Pink’ blush on your skin, leaving a silky reflective glow in its wake. It’s the perfect juxtaposition of unkempt grunge style and polished, pretty pink gloss—an embodiment of femininity within the grunge realm.
With a lightweight, non-sticky formula, this Face Gloss effortlessly melts into your skin, creating a natural dewy finish that enhances any grunge look. After all, this aesthetic is built on non-conformity and a commitment to breaking boundaries.
The Pretty Grunge Collection also boasts a Liquid Matte Lipstick Mini Quad, featuring four beloved shades. From the best-selling nudes, Bombshell and Sweet Talker, to the newbies, Maverick and Rebel—each is named after qualities that capture the grunge spirit. These lipsticks offer a spectrum, allowing you to opt for subtle nudes or layer up for a bold statement. Infused with the Lip L.O.V.E complex, they are rich in antioxidants and deliver the thinnest-possible, buttery texture that dries to a velvety finish, all while keeping your lips moisturized. With a remarkable 8-hour wear time, these lipsticks offer intense colors for a rockstar look that’s effortless and lived-in.
From pretty nudes to ultra-grunge shades, the Liquid Matte Lipstick and Silk Balm Duo is a game-changer. The full-size Liquid Matte Lipstick in Ex-Wife is as bold as it gets—ultra-black and ready to make a grunge statement. Pair it with the Silk Balm in Goth Gloss, a gray-tinted lip balm that delivers a mirror-like shine. The Silk Balm is the epitome of smoothing, hydrating, and lightweight. It’s the secret to achieving a grunge lip that’s juicy and irresistible.
No grunge look is complete without the Perfect Grunge Lip Contour 2.0. This super pigmented black lip liner allows you to define your lips, whether you opt for a ’90s grunge aesthetic or aim for a bold statement. Its buttery-soft formula ensures effortless shaping and contouring for fuller-looking, transfer-proof lips with an IDGAF attitude.
The Pretty Grunge Collection is your beauty arsenal, an iconic fusion of rebellion and allure. Take a dive into the world of ’90s grunge with a modern twist, and let your beauty chaos reign.
