Hello beauties, Summer is the season for bright colours, especially when it comes to summer makeup trends. I’m all for the ‘neon’ makeup that seems to be everywhere at the moment and wanted to share with you a palette I’ve been obsessing over since I picked it up. I have already used this palette in my festival makeup video that you can find here but wanted to share my thoughts as well as some swatches.
Huda Beauty’s Electric Obsessions Palette, a slimline edit of the most sought-after, vibrant shades – all you need to achieve an array of mesmer-eyes-ing vibrant eye looks. The ultimate capsule make up wardrobe, this unites nine ultra-versatile, buttery smooth shadows – three magnificent metallics and six saturated mattes. We’re completely besotted with the range of hues and textures and you’re guaranteed to fall head-over-heels too – especially with the beautifully burnished aquamarine and sapphire hues, not to mention the bright fuchsia and rich saffron mattes.
All the obsession palettes have the same small yet sleek packaging with a magnetic lid. They’re sturdy and amazing to travel with thanks to its compact size. I love how the eyeshadows are spaced out and it’s easy to dip your brush in without making any mess. There is a mirror on the inside of the lid but unfortunately no space for any shade names, which probably wouldn’t matter to most but is difficult for us bloggers/youtubers when looking for a reference!
This palette has three shimmers, a purple, cobalt blue and a aquamarine blue. All three have a creamy texture and the pigmentation is amazing. I prefer to use these shimmers with my fingers as using a brush digs out too much products due to them being so soft and creamy. There’s also six mattes in this palette, each shade is intensely pigmented and blend out so seamlessly. I love how easy it is to build up the colours without the formula being too drying. There’s barely any fall out with the mattes but a fair amount with the shimmers so it’s worth doing your eye look before the rest of your makeup so you can clean it up.
I really love the colour range, if you enjoy bright colours this palette is definitely for you. It has everything you need to create a handful of bold eye looks. I’ve swatched each shade below and created a fun easy look with the Red, neon pink, yellow, blue shimmer and aquamarine shimmer.
