While surfing the internet for new makeup I came across the new Huda Beauty Precious Stones Obsessions Palettes and I had to try one out. I chose the Ruby Obsessions palette.
Huda Beauty was founded by makeup artist, beauty blogger, and entrepreneur Huda Kattan on 2013. The first product she released was a series of false eyelashes through Sephora. The lash series was so successful that later Huda Beauty began to offer concealers, foundations, highlighter palettes, eye shadow palettes, lip liners, lip sticks, and false nails. I decided to try out the eye shadow palette colors.
These palettes were inspired by the beautiful gemstones amethyst, ruby, emerald, and sapphire. Each palette is made up of nine shades, which have a creamy, metallic and duo chrome look. The palette provides a great variety of colors for day or evening looks. The Huda Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette appears to be really vibrant and shimmery. I chose the ruby palette after debating between emerald and ruby.
The packaging for the Huda Beauty Precious Stones Obsessions Palettes is sharp and eye catching. The gemstone on the front of each of the palettes is shaped like a diamond. This diamond portrays all of the shades that the palette comes with. The pallet also comes with a decent size mirror. The shades are highly pigmented and most give a nice payoff. The palette I chose came with a variation of colors from coral to pink to reds. The shimmery shades are silky and smooth to touch also in application.
When applying the eye shadow, I had some fallout with the matte shades. These shades were also dry to touch, and dry while applying. This made it difficult to achieve the blending I desired. What made matters even worse, the shade was sticking to my cheek bone so it wasn’t something you could just brush off. Due to the difficult blending, I decided to just pat on these shades. After about four hours the eye shadow started to accumulate on the crease and fade away. This led to a blotchy, unfinished look.
Would I Buy this Eyeshadow Palette Again?
Overall, I would not purchase this specific eye shadow palette again. It was more work to blend and wipe the fall out than I would of liked. In the future I may try the emerald, sapphire, or amethyst palettes. I have my doubts on them being better but sometimes you may get a bad one. The Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions was aesthetically pleasing but the blending is difficult and application is tedious.Tags: Eye Shadow
