This is probably one of the most anticipated palettes of 2018. The Huda Beauty Nude Eyeshadow palette is basically me if I was ever to be a palette, or create one. I just knew I had to get this as soon as it came out.
When I posted about this on my insta stories, my DMs blew up because everyone wanted to know if it was worth it. I am going to give this a totally honest and unbiased review. I bought the palette myself, I paid for it. I had so many people ask me if they should get it for Christmas too.
Without further ado, let’s get straight into it..
The Nude Eyeshadow Palette
As with all of Huda’s large palettes, this one also retails at £56 which is considered pricey for a lot of people. If you consider the yearly use you will get out of it, then actually its just under £5 a month which is great value for money, if you use it all the time.
There’s 18 highly pigmented shades which range from mattes, to shimmer and glitter. I feel this has everything you need to create the perfect party, wedding or weekend look. I’m a HUGE fan of the halo eye look, and you have all the shades you need to recreate this look with.
There’s 3 types of finishes to this palette and one concealer which is to be used as a base for applying the shimmer hues or glitters.
1. Reflective Shades – shimmering pearl flecks with a duo chrome finish
2. Glitter formulas – infused with innovative silicones for advanced adherence
3. Pressed Pearl – layers effortlessly on tpp of mattes to add dimension
4. Concealer Base – to boost eyeshadow intensity
Mattes can be worn alone for a muted daytime look, whilst the reflective and pressed pearl shades really amp up your evening look and add a pop of colour which is just so striking and shimmery. I’d say this is a very versatile palette. I’ve enjoyed using all the colours and I find myself reaching for this a lot. I’ve always like the Huda Beauty palettes because the colours are so striking. This Nude palette is nothing like I’ve ever owned before, and I do own a lot of palettes!
I’m drawn to the soft berry, dusty copper, rosy pink and golden taupe tones. It balances the cool and warm tones very well and although it took me a few weeks to find the matte shades easy to blend, I now love them. The mattes can be worn alone for a muted daytime look, whilst the reflective and pressed pearl shades really amp up your evening look and add a pop of colour which is just so striking and shimmery.
This is probably Huda’s most high end palette. The packaging is quite heavy and sturdy, it comes with a mirror. My only negative is that, if you’re not a fan of glitter, then this palette is not for you. The duo chrome shades have light specs of glitter, so just be very careful when you apply this especially if you are a contact lense user. Out of all the palettes I own from Huda, this probably has the most glitter.
The standard points to note are that the palette is cruelty free, suitable for all skin types, talc free and fragrance free.
- Aloe Vera
- Coconut Oil
- Sunflower Wax
Here’s how it looked on me:
I picked my palette up at Feel Unique and I think this will make a great Christmas present for any makeup lover.
