With all the reviews I do (which is A LOT – cause you guys know I like to review everything I try) but not all leave me excited to share with you. That’s not to say I hate the reviews/posts I write because I don’t but certain products just get me giddy and extra in a hurry to share with you. Today is one of those reviews – and I’m sure the title of the post clues you in as to why I am so excited!
So enough chit chat, let’s get into the post!
Shade selection: As you can tell by the shade selection, this palette is a warm-toned lover’s dream! There are copper/orange/rose gold shades and a stunning purple shade as well as some cranberry. The shade range of this palette literally had me drooling which is why it was the palette to bring me into the world of high-end eyeshadow palette.
Pigmentation: Its surprise that the shades are pigmented beyond belief. This brand isn’t for the faint of heart. As you can see by the swatches just how pigmented these shadows are!
Is there any fall out? There is little to no fall out for me. Nothing that sticks out to me. I am perfectly happy doing my eye makeup with this palette after I apply my base. We all know those palettes that have crazy fall out and leave us with the only option of doing our eye makeup first. BUT this palette didn’t cause any mess or dramas for me – so hooray for that!
Do they blend well?: Oh yes they do! For those who are just starting out with makeup and/or eyeshadow – it may not seem super easy to blend – but that’s because they are crazy pigmented. So this isn’t the palette to practice with. But if you are well acquainted with eye makeup – then you won’t have any trouble with blending.
Finish of the shades: There are 8 matte shades in this palette, 6 satin/shimmery ish shades. 3 extra shimmer/more frosted shades and 1 loosely pressed glitter.
Availability: You can purchase this palette off Sephora
Price: $95 AUD
Wearability: I’m not going to pretend this is an ever day palette because its definitely not. It’s the perfect palette for glamming up. BUT it is possible to get a few more simple eye looks out of this palette (stay tuned for that as I’ll snap a few looks on Instagram). Overall, you definitely get more glam looks than you get simple looks but who says you can’t be glam during the day?!
Packaging: It has a cardboard like packaging on the outer case with Hudas eyes (and her eye makeup on the cover). When you open the palette you a mirror and of course the gorgeous eyeshadows. It feels sturdy and of good quality.
Pros: Pigmented, blendable, a STUNNING shade range, the last well on the eyes and you get a lovely balance of matte to non-matte shadows.
Cons: Not exactly an affordable option, the pan size is kind of small and I wish there were 3 additional transition shades included in this palette. But all in all I don’t have any major pickles with it.
Would I repurchase this? This is definitely a unique palette in the potential repurchase pile – though it will take me ages to use it all up.
Would I recommend this? I 100% recommend this palette, of course, if the shade range isn’t appealing to you then you might not end up liking it – I feel like the success of a palette largely depends on its shade range as much as it does on its formula. But as you have probably gathered I’m absolutely obsessed with the shade range of the palette.
Overall thoughts: It’s pigmented, it has the most magical shade range ever and all in all its just a legend of a palette. I mean if you haven’t seen this palette in person then you definitely should because it literally speaks to my soul! I’m obsessed with this palette and I definitely plan to play around with it to see just how many eye look combinations I can create! All in all this is an absolutely brilliant palette and I can’t recommend it enough.
And that wraps up this post! Have you guys tried the infamous Huda desert dusk palette or any other Huda beauty products? Drop a comment and let’s have a chat about it! I hope you all have a fabulous day and I’ll see you in the next post!
