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).
