Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette. Swatches & Eye Looks

Makeup Looks, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

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.

Packaging

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.

Shades

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.

Formula

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.

Swatches

Eye Looks

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.

Price

This palette will cost you £25 and you can find it on Cult Beauty here.

Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Palette, Swatches & Eye Look

Makeup Looks, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, hope you’re having a good Monday, I’m back today with the second of the new Huda Beauty Obsession palettes. The Topaz obsessions is perfect for those who like warm shades and it just screams autumn/fall. Keep reading for 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 Topaz Obsessions Palette unites nine pigment-packed powders – four vibrant duo-chrome shimmers and five creamy mattes –  in rich rose gold, amber, burnished bronzes and tangerine orange for the ultimate sophisticated polish.

Packaging

This palette has the same packaging as the rest of the obsessions palettes but with the exception of it being a gorgeous burnt orange colour to match the topaz theme. The shadows are nicely spaced out, this makes it easy to dip your eyeshadow brushes into the pan without picking up another colour. On the underside of the lid you will find a great quality mirror. Its compact size makes this palette perfect for travelling, this is the pocket rocket of palettes.

Shades

This palette has 9 shades, which consists of 5 mattes and 4 shimmers. There is enough shades in this palette to create a handful of warm looks.

Formula

Starting with the matte shades, they have the same formula as the emerald obsessions, very smooth with little fallout. Unfortunately I didn’t find the mattes as pigmented as other obsessions palettes. They needed building up for a great colour payoff and the dark brown shade on the last row was very patchy. The shimmers however are amazing, they have a super creamy formula that are packed with pigment and blend out easily. There is a small amount of fallout with the shimmers so go careful not to push too hard in the pan.

  • Yellow toned orange matte
  • Rich copper shimmer
  • Burnt orange matte
  • Warm gold shimmer
  • Salmon pink matte

  • Dark bronze shimmer
  • Chocolate brown matte
  • Terracota Orange
  • Light bronze shimmer

Using shades ‘5’ for the transition. Shade ‘3’ to create the shape, shade ‘7’ to deepen the outer corner and bottom lash line and ‘4’ in the centre of the lid.

Using shade ‘8’ on the outer corner to create the shape. Shade ‘5’ in the inner corner and shade ‘7’ on the bottom lash line. Winged liner using Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.

Price

This palette cost £25 and you can find it here

Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette. Swatches & Eye Looks

Makeup Looks, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, if you follow my Instagram then you would have seen in my stories that I managed to get my hands on the new Huda Beauty Precious Obsessions palettes that have just been released. I loved the formula of a few of the first palettes so knew I had to collect the gemstone themed ones as soon as they launched. I will be doing separate reviews, swatches and two eye looks with each palette. Starting off with the Emerald Obsessions.

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 Emerald Obsessions Palette unites a spectrum of nine pigment-packed powders – six vibrant duo-chrome shimmers and three creamy mattes – in shades ranging from mint or golden olive to timeless emerald and show-stopping peacock green.

Packaging

They have opted for the same shape and size as the other obsessions palettes which is great for me as although they are small, makes for easy storage and are travel friendly. Each pan is easy to get to without accidentally dipping into another colour and there is the added bonus of having a mirror too! There is a metallic bit that keeps the lid down and the box is a sturdy thick cardboard.

Formula

Just like the previous obsessions palettes these have a smooth formula. The mattes are silky with a small amount of fallout and each shade is pigmented, with the exception of the mint green shade swatched below which was fairly patchy and needed extra work. The shimmers are what really stand out in this palette, they’re super buttery and have a really intense pigment. All shades were really easy to blend and I find wetting a brush works best to apply the shimmers as there’s a fair amount of fall out.

Shades

Inside you will find 9 shades, which consist of three mattes and six duochrome shimmers. There’s enough diversity in this palette to create a handful of looks, wether that be something natural or more intense. I really like how each colour compliments the other and the colours just flow so you won’t struggle with how to use certain shades.

Eye Looks

EmeraldUsing shade ‘6’ to create the shape. Shade ‘5’ in the centre of the lid and shade ‘1’ to highlight the inner corner and brow bone.

SwampUsing shade ‘7’ for the transition. Shade ‘8’ to create the shape. Shade ‘4’ to deepen the outer corner. Shade ‘5’ on the centre of the lid and shade ‘9’ to highlight the brow bone and inner corner.

Price

The price of this palette is £25 and be found here.

Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette

Makeup Looks, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

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.

Packaging

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!

Formula

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.

Shades

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.

  • Matte pink with lavender undertones
  • Purple shimmer
  • Matte coral
  • Cobalt blue shimmer

  • Bright matte yellow
  • Neon matte pink
  • Matte teal
  • Aquamarine shimmer
  • Matte classic red
  • Price

  • This palette retails for £25 in the UK and can be bought here from Cult Beauty. I think this is a fair price as the pigmentation of each shade is unreal and you can definitely get some great looks out of this palette. It’s also a plus that it’s travel friendly due to the size.

    Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

    Product Reviews, Uncategorized

    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.
