Hello and happy Monday! Today I have the new, limited edition Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette for you to check out.
The Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette features nine new eyeshadow shades in either a matte or shimmery finish. This is one of five new palettes in her jewel obsessions release. The five new ones are Emerald, Topaz (oranges), Ruby (reds), Sapphire (blues) and Amethyst (purples). I did pick up one other which is Topaz, and that will be reviewed soon!
I have limited knowledge about the brand other than it was started by a huge “beauty influencer” and honestly, if I find out any more about her I will probably be completely turned off as I am about 99% of them now. BUT I wanted to see what all the type was about so here we are.
The individual shades do not have names, but they come in a nice compact sized square palette with a good sized mirror.
The first, third and fifth shades are glittery, and while they feel smooth and creamy, they are prone to some fallout as glitters are.
The second, sixth and seventh shades are mattes and they are not without some issues. They feel pretty velvety to the touch but are a bit on the patchy side, especially the deep olive green ones.
The fourth, eighth and ninth shades are metallics and they are smooth like butter and extremely pigmented. LOVE them.
All in all for my first time trying the brand I am not completely blown away but I do like this palette. Swatches on brand social media accounts are SO manipulated and fake now it can be hard to determine if something is good. This is where trusted bloggers like me come in handy. Sadly it seems many people just want to see the “fake pretty” photos now. Anyway, that is a whole OTHER blog post!
You can find the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette at Sephora now and it’s $27.00.
Stay tuned for my review of Topaz soon!
