New Nudes

Huda Beauty New Nudes Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a solid offering for those who like their pinks and berries with pops of shimmer. I think that the mattes are blendable and easy to work with, even though some of them have more buildable coverage (not “highly-pigmented” as described), and they were very functional. I did long for a deeper, richer, more contrasting matte shade to get more depth and definition out of the color story. While the glitter shades worked better than anticipated, I think if they had included one deeper matte and another shimmer, it would be a more functional, higher quality palette overall.

As an aside, I’m not reviewing/rating the concealer base as it doesn’t quite align with the color rating system used on the palette and the rest of the shades, so I’ll leave my brief thoughts here: it’s a sheerer, thinner concealer with a more emollient base in a pale, yellowish beige shade. It worked decently with the eyeshadows in the palette, but depending on your need for coverage, coloring, and so forth, it may be too sheer and/or too light to work well. I would have rather the brand include another eyeshadow and include a concealer sample with the palette (like how some companies include a travel-sized eyeshadow primer).

Huda Beauty New Nudes Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.69 oz.) is a new, permanent palette that features 18 shades across multiple finishes from matte to glitter to reflective to pressed pearl. One shade is called “Concealed” and is a “concealer base shade.” Here are swatches!

Best & Worst of Huda Beauty Precious Stones Obsessions Palettes

For the fall/winter, five new variations in the Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette ($27.00 for 0.45 oz.) range launched in a collection dubbed “Precious Stones.” Each palette is inspired by a stone, and the color scheme of each palette is reflected by that.  I loved the concept but found the execution to be more hit and miss than the brand’s permanent Obsessions palettes, which I’ve enjoyed. The shimmers used throughout are denser and thicker compared to past iterations–creamier and more silicone-heavy but in a way that doesn’t play as well with brushes or more diffused/blended application (but will swatch great with fingertips). The mattes seemed a bit drier and thinner with pigmentation being more medium to semi-opaque (often buildable).

Sapphire

Huda Beauty Sapphire Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of shimmers and mattes with a blue theme. If you’re someone who tends to use a dampened brush, fingertips, or a glitter glue with their shimmers and doesn’t mind using an eyeshadow primer, I expect that the more original color scheme/types of shades may make it workable. I do think that it is a fussy palette and needs some patience/specific techniques and tools to work with. The mattes were dustier and not as pigmented as anticipated, while a few of the shimmers had less desirable textures that made them a challenge to use.

Ruby

Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that featured an assortment of pink/red-based shades from pale pink to plum to coral. The matte formula was thinner and drier to the touch but often performed fine on the lid (blendable, buildable, not prone to fading or fallout), while the shimmer formula was denser and thicker with a more silicone-based texture so they worked better with synthetic brushes and pushing/pressing motions both in the pan and on the lid (this is my experience with most silicone-heavy formulas). If you tend to have a very light hand, you may not find your technique picks up product as well with the shimmers.

Topaz

Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is more of a mixed bag than I’d expect these types of shades to be, since we have certainly seen numerous orange/copper/red-themed shades over the last few years. The matte formula was noticeably drier, though actual application showed them to be rather pigmented and easy to use, so while they felt one way, it only seemed to inhibit the wear a bit. The shimmer formula seems denser and creamier to the touch, but then is harder to apply with dry brushes like a traditional eyeshadow due to the additional slip.
