I’m back again with another Huda Beauty post! This time it’s all about the beauty that is the Desert Dusk palette. This is the second palette to follow since her original Rose Gold Palette launched. I have since reviewed and talked about the Rose Gold Remastered palette which I fell in love with instantly. Today, I want to share my thoughts on the Desert Dusk Palette.
The first instant attraction I had towards this was it’s Arabian inspired theme. The colours are extremely enticing and I was instantly drawn to the Purple. There’s 18 shades in total which are broken down into four different finishes – Matte Shades, Pressed Pearls, Duo-Chrome Toppers and One Pure Glitter. The shades are designed to be layered together and specifically compliment each other. The finishes are then broken down as follows – eight matte shades, six pressed pearls and three duo chrome toppers (which I just LOVE)
Arabian vibes with rich and luxury colours will definitely excite your routine as it has mine. This along with my other Huda Palettes is all I am reaching for!
“Our second palette is filled with vibrant, highly-pigmented shades that reflect the exotic landscape of the Arabian desert around us. We’ve introduced three new formulas to reflect all its dazzling mystery and charm, in particular the iridescent duo-chrome formulas just completely capture the mysterious desert mirages. I spent so much time to ensure that every shade was absolutely perfect, and every colour is so special to me. It was also really important to me that we take all our knowledge and feedback from our first palette, and create something that would showcase our growing experience and knowledge.” – Huda Kattan
A lot of people have struggled with the Duo Chrome Toppers and honestly, the best way for me to apply them, is using my fingers. You just don’t get the same effect as using a brush. By using your finger ensures maximum shine on the lids.
Steeply price again at £56, but I do live for colours like these and she has upped her packaging game a lot, so I can’t complain. I do honestly feel, if this is a palette you will reach for mostly, then it’s worth the price tag. The price did bother me initially, but because her main big eyeshadow palettes are one of my favourites, I am not too worried about the price. I am also glad that just like the Rose Gold Remastered palette, Huda has included the mirror. This is such an important feature to have in any palette, especially if you travel alot.
I own so many palettes in my collection, but the Huda Beauty palettes are ones I always reach for. I think it’s because they have a good mix of matte, shimmers and toppers which work so well on my lids.
The only shade which might be an issue to use is Cosmo and it’s the one that is pure glitter which is chunky. The best way to apply this is either with your fingers and gently patting it on. Or to use a flat brush and simply pat and build. I quite like that she’s included a texture which is different to any other formula. It’s a great party shade.
I’ve really enjoyed using this mixture of shades and I do feel this is a versatile palette. The matte shades can be worn everyday on their own for a more muted, subtle look and the duo chrome shimmers are perfect for jazzing up any look!
If you’re a fan of Purples (which I am) this is a must have for your collection!
Desert Dusk is priced at £56, and available to purchase from the babes at Feel Unique.
