The following is issued by Digital Settlements Group.
A Proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit. Purchasers of Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions makeup palettes sued the distributors, HB USA Holdings, Inc. dba Huda Beauty, alleging violations of laws relating to the sale of the Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Pressed Pigment Products (the “Products”). The Plaintiffs alleged that the Products are unlawfully marketed in the United States for use in the eye area and that Huda Beauty’s labelling and marketing failed to disclose material information about the products. Huda Beauty denies Plaintiffs’ claims, denies any wrongdoing, and asserts that the products are safe and effective. The Court has not decided whether Huda Beauty did anything wrong. The parties agreed to the Proposed Settlement to resolve the lawsuit and avoid the expenses and uncertainties of continuing the lawsuit.
If you are a member of the Class, you have three options:
With Court approval, the settlement provides cash payments. Settlement Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form and either (a) received a direct notice or (b) provide proof of purchase shall be eligible for a payment of Twenty-Nine U.S. Dollars ($29.00) for each Product, up to a maximum of three (3) Products, for a maximum total payment to each Settlement Class Member of Eighty-Seven U.S. Dollars ($87.00). Class members who are unable to provide valid Proof of Purchase shall be eligible to submit a claim for payment of a total of Ten U.S. Dollars ($10.00) per household for all Products claimed, up to a maximum of three (3) products, for a maximum total payment to each Settlement Class Member without Proof of Purchase of Thirty U.S. Dollars ($30.00). In the event that Huda Beauty reintroduces the Products (as previously formulated), Huda Beauty agrees it will include a disclosure visible on the rear panel of the U.S. Product packaging, its U.S. website, and U.S.-facing marketing and advertising (including any third-party retailers) where the Products are shown being used around the eye, which states: “*WARNING for U.S. Customers: may contain color additives that are not approved by the F.D.A. for use in the eye area” or similar language, to the extent consistent with current regulatory guidance in the United States. In addition, Huda Beauty will append a “*” symbol to each specific shade at issue that links to the above disclaimer on the label of the Products. Huda Beauty also agrees that it will implement the above disclosures for any future “pressed pigment” or eye shadow products marketed in the United States that are substantially similar to the Products (i.e., that contain color additives not approved by FDA for use in the eye area).
