I am a faithful follower of local socialite Huddah Monroe and have witnessed her grass to grace story. Her wit-game is beyond imaginations and she is totally a different person from the naive girl we knew from Big Brother Africa 2013.
When everyone thinks Huddah is a socialite, I call this woman a good business woman. I mean, Huddah is a brand ambassador of more than three Mega companies,just to mention Uber.
So over the few weeks,the witty sassy lass launched her own lipstick line that is selling like hot-cake. The stock was over within the first two weeks. (I must commend Kenyan ladies for supporting their own).
But wait…so what was her propelling force towards that milestone??? SHE KNOWS BETTER.
Nonetheless, it just hit my attention that Huddah’s lipstick line MIGHT ….I said MIGHT have been copy-pasted idea that juat got a slight editing on the branding and shades names. It hit on me that there is another Huda (notice difference,single “d”) who is more influential than our own East African sweetheart.
Apparently,HUDA Kattan is a former MUA blogger who was born and raised in the US but now in Dubai. She is a major Instagram beauty influence with an Instagram following of 15.5 million when our own HUDDAH is at 885,000 followers.(not bad though)
Coincidentally, Huda Kattan also has her own lipstick line going by the brand name Huda. Whatever makes me think that Huddah might have allegedly got her motivation to copy paste is the BRAND FONT.
Notice how the “H” and “A” have been designed on the brand font of both lines. The only difference is the added “D” and the last “H” from “Huda” to “Huddah”. That’s not all, take your time to notice the right side effect on Huda’s lipsticks and the left side effect on Huddah’s lipsticks.
Surprisingly, Huddah had originally branded the lippies in bold black font but later borrowed a leaf from the other Huda. Now,who stole from who? Or was it just some strictly scrutinized and verified marketing strategy??? Who knows?
