Over the past two days, beauty guru Huda Kattan has been teasing her 36.1 million Huda Beauty Instagram followers about a new product that’s set to launch May 3. Sharing a video of herself applying the mystery product on her face and body, showing off its shimmer and glow powers, we were obviously following all of the breadcrumbs.
After 48 hours of refreshing our Instagram feeds for new leads, Kattan pulled us out of the dark to announce the arrival of her liquid pantyhose – ‘N.Y.M.P.H’. – the missing element in our beauty cabinets that we never knew we needed in order to reach full goddess potential. N.Y.M.P.H, short for ‘Not Your Mama’s Panty Hose’, is also unironically a word from Greek mythology that refers to female divine spirits. In fact, all three shades of the new product take after Greco-Roman goddess names, which include ‘Luna’, ‘Aphrodite’, and ‘Aurora’.
‘Luna’, described as a “soft, white-gold shimmer with hints of rose gold and silver,” is the lightest tone of the bundle, while ‘Aphrodite’ offers a more golden-bronze finish, and ‘Aurora’ has a deeper, “warm copper finish.” Made with a water-based formula and 30 percent pearl shimmer, ‘N.Y.M.P.H.’ is far from the blotchy, drugstore bronzers that scarred us growing up — yes, we remember how traumatizing those times were. But do not fear: Savoir Flair received the product yesterday and can attest that it does not budge, is water-resistant, and super easy to blend. One editor’s pale legs looked magnificently tanned for the first time in her life, while another editor — just back from a holiday with a warm glow — applied it to her shoulders for a vivacious golden sheen we’d never seen the likes of from a bottle.
Recommended to be applied with the Huda Beauty ‘Blur & Glow Brush’, the formula only calls for a couple pumps to achieve full coverage in large areas. With a streak-free finish and hydration, ‘N.Y.M.P.H’. already has us feeling like we, too, can have skin that radiates like Jennifer Lopez, all year round.
