Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

Hello beauties, does anyone else ‘accidentally’ land onto the Cult Beauty website then want everything? Well that’s what happened when I picked up the palette I’m reviewing today. Did I need it? No, did I think it would be a perfect edition to my summer makeup looks? Hell yes. Keep reading to hear my thoughts, some swatches and a eye look created with this palette.

Love your Huda palette but can’t fit it in your make up bag? Or just desperate to sample the shadows that have sent the beauty world into a spin? The answer has arrived (at last!) with Huda Beauty’s Coral Obsessions Palette, a slimline edit of the most sought-after orange, red and yellow-toned hues – all you need to achieve an array of on-trend coral eye looks. The ultimate capsule make up wardrobe, this unites nine ultra-versatile, buttery smooth shadows – two shimmering metallics surrounded by seven saturated mattes. We’re completely besotted with the range of hues and you’re guaranteed to fall head-over-heels too – especially with the beautifully burnished orange-copper tones, not to mention the rich rosy reds and stunning saffron hue.

Packaging

First thing I want to mention about this palette is how small it is, when i saw it on the website I really thought it was going to be bigger so I was a little disappointed when a palm sized palette showed up in the post. That being said the packing is eye catching with it’s broken eyeshadow picture which is I think is quite creative. The eyeshadows are housed in a flip up box with magnetic clasps and it does feel fairly sturdy. As expected the pan sizes are a average size to fit in the smaller palette, but it is easy to dip the brush in and out without making a mess.

Formula

This palette has seven matte shades and two shimmers. I think mattes in eyeshadow palettes can be quite hit and miss, often they are very dry, chalky and hard to blend. Not with this palette, they are incredibly smooth and so soft to work into the eye leaving a seamless look after blending. Same for the shimmers, just gorgeous pigment and minimal fall out. I’m in love with the last shade on this palette, it’s a stunning rose gold shade and the sheen it gives is super dreamy. I will definitely be using this for a halo eye, inner corner highlight or on it own on the lids with some gloss.

Swatches

Price

This cost me £25 which I think is on the pricier side for such a small palette but the colours are so fun and I’m not disappointed as the colour pay off is incredible. You can find it here. I will definitely be picking up the other palettes in this collection just because I think they are perfect for creating a eye look in one palette without having to dip into others and would be great to travel with. I’m going to Berlin in a week so will be taking this with me.

  5. I accidentally ended up with £170 Cult Beauty order so I could get their birthday goodie bag free…it’s easy done! I considered this palette at the time as it looks more up my street than the others in the range but I’m getting one of them in the goodie bag (think it’s the mauve obsessions). If I like it though I would probably pick up this one too! x

    Uhg I have been so tempted by this palette since the moment that it came out! I only worry about how many similar mid-tone shades there are in there! But, I know that these palettes have a great formula, and I love how condensed they are. Love your pictures and that look you came up with is stunning!

    1. I think it’s worth the purchase for the pigmentation! You can get a few eye looks out of it but it’s still quite pricey for what it is! Perfect for travel though as it’s small! Thanks for reading lovely 😘 x

    I love the look you created with the yellow!
    I already have a lot of similar pink shades in other palettes so I won’t be picking this specific mini palette up but I’m still really interested in the mauve obsessions or the smokey palette. Glad to hear the formula is really good!
