Hello beauties, as promised I’m back with another of the Gemstone Obsessions eyeshadow palettes from Huda Beauty. This time we will be taking a look at the Amethyst palette. Keep reading for a review, swatches and two eye looks.
A dream come true for those Huda-holics who can’t squeeze their palettes into overstretched make up bags (or those yet to sample her game-changing shadows) this Amethyst Obsessions Palette unites a spectrum of nine pigment-packed powders – six vibrant duo-chrome shimmers and three creamy mattes – in shades ranging from moody mauve and violet to barely there pink.
Just like the previous obsessions palettes this has the same packaging and layout. The eyeshadows are housed in a sturdy thick card box with a magnetic lid to keep your eyeshadows safe. On the underside of the lid there’s a great quality mirror. This little palette is a handy size for travelling, I love the purple as it’s a perfect fit for the Amethyst theme.
This palette contains 9 shades, which consist of 3 mattes and 6 shimmers. This palette is perfect for those who love to play with pinks and purples and there’s enough shades to be able to create a handful of looks. The shimmers are duo chrome and look truly stunning.
I wanted to talk first about the shimmers, I can’t express just how rich they are in pigment, they have a creamy, soft formula and apply so beautifully. I like to use these by packing them on with a flat eyeshadow brush and spritzing a little fixing spray onto the brush/shadow. Moving onto the mattes, unfortunately these didn’t live up to the other two palettes I have reviewed. They’re very dry and almost chalky, as you will see in the swatches that they look a little patchy. I did manage to make them work though with a really fluffy brush and lots of blending.
Using shades ‘3’ to create the shape, shade ‘4’ to deepen the outer corner and lower lash. Shade ‘6’ in the centre of the lid and outer corner and shade ‘5’ in the inner corner.
Using shade ‘3’ to create the shape and shade ‘8’ in the centre of a halo effect and on the lower lash line.
What do you think of this palette? What’s your favourite look of the two? Let me know in the comments below!
