Unusual looking palette. It is rather pale in appearance`so not sure what type of look you would get out of it. I am looking forward to seeing reviews and looks. In general, I like my Huda palettes but these shades do not appear to be very unique so I likely have a lot of dupes.

Nice colour story, but I am not very sure about
the’ glitter powder charged with glass pearls and silver sparkles’ and ‘ 2 sheer multi-reflect’… Based on my experience, these kind of texture are not very promising, I’d rather like ‘classic’ shimmers shades .. so probably I’m going ti dislike almost 3 shades… Some mattes look very similar… So defenetely not for me, at least not at that price point. However, I’ll site for the review!

Off Balance and Crash look indeed too similar. And it might be that once you blend Karma into the creases, it would look the same on most skintones.

I am loving the new pastel trend. I’ll take pastel over warm tones any day. That being said, I don’t think I’m 100% in love with this one. It has some great colors, but the packaging looks like clear acrylic? I think one could definitely make some beautiful looks with this palette.

It really does look quite interesting in its color story! A little bit ethereal due to a few duochromes and airy, cool tones, and a little bit down to earth with some neutals grounding it. Hope it’s as good as it looks!

Ok, I know it’s half neutrals, but dang! What a pretty palette! Icy pastel is very on-trend for winter. I’d be very interested in this if it reviews well.

With the exception of the black, burgundy, and maybe the teal, they’re all very light to mid-toned. (Pastels, as someone else mentioned.) For that reason it’s definitely not versatile enough for me!

I reallllly love my Huda New Nudes, and I am eyeing this for sure! It may be my 2020 new palette! (I don’t buy a lot of palettes as I don’t use much eye shadow. This is kind of gorgeous though!

I really like the look of this and this could very well be my first Huda purchase, but… two of the shades are specifically described as sheer yet the obviously edited “swatches” are all entirely opaque. I’m not sure I’d go so far as to call that unethical as we already know when we see swatches like that that they are entirely fake but seriously?

Oh! It’s so pretty? I’ve been so underwhelmed with the new releases that this is quite a breath of fresh air! Fingers crossed the trends start swinging towards cool purples and teal.

Love the color story, but am afraid of the ‘high shine creamy metallics.’ Some of the CP SSSs that could be described that way are real garish on me. Creepy garish. Do love the light quality, and have always enjoyed that rare bird, the good pastel. They can bring deep set eyes front and center.

I love the color story but Huda shimmers are usually too glittery/gritty for me. Will need to swatch them myself here if these have the same problem…

What a beautiful and refreshing palette! I love these colors – a “rainbow” that I would actually wear. I like deeper jewel or primary tones in the pan or as liners, but find them hard to pull off because I have deep set eyes that can look quite shadowy with darker tones. Looking forward to your swatches and review, Christine!

This is definitely a palette I would use a lot, except for those glittery-looking shades. But I have dupes, and therefore, will pass on this. Although I appreciate that there is no wasted space between the shades (a pet peeve of mine), I’m not liking the image of the eyes on the packaging at all.
