I’m sure everyone has a couple of beauty brands which they love and get excited over, especially with new launches and one of those brands for me is definitely Huda Beauty. I only tried their products last Summer but I’ve been smitten ever since and I recently added a few more products to my collection.
Huda Beauty started off with a range of false lashes but their product range has gone from strength to strength and their eyeshadow formula is one of my absolute favourites and I really love her Mini Obsessions Palettes. I already own the Smokey Obsessions and Coral Obsessions palettes, and one of my newest additions is the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette.
The Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is one of the original Mini Obsessions Palettes which launched in early November 2017, when there were only four different palettes; Mauve, Smokey, Warm Brown and Electric. Each of the Obsessions palettes are £25 for nine powder eyeshadows, with each shade containing 1.1 grams of product.
I’ve seen people complain about how tiny the palettes are but there is zero necessary packaging within the palette and the shadows are almost full sized so I think £25 for nine shades isn’t bad at all. Especially when you consider Charlotte Tilbury quads are £39 for four shades and I honestly don’t think the Tilbury shadows are as high quality as the Huda Beauty shadows.
“6 pigmented mattes and 3 gorgeous shimmers in dusty rose and plummy hues create a soft, natural finish for a smokey, sultry effect. The Mauve Obsessions Palette is the makeup essential that everyone needs to create everyday looks, with a sultry edge.“
The Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette really appealed to me as I loved the mix of berries, pinks and red shades. Everyone has been lusting after the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette but I feel like this palette covers the berry theme really well and I feel like the first four shades within the Naked Cherry Palette are quite boring.
The shades within the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette however, include some seriously stunning duochromes and the pigmentation is on another level. Urban Decay always used to be my favourite eyeshadow formula but the Huda Beauty shadows are smoother, more pigmented and the finishes are more interesting too.
1 – a deep reddy toned brown matte.
2 – a rose gold shimmer with a pink duochrome shift metallic.
3 – a pinky toned champagne foil.
4 – a deep metallic cranberry foil.
5 – a warm light chocolate brown matte.
6 – a muted pinky red matte.
7 – a cool toned dark brown matte.
8 – a warm toned pale beige matte.
9 – a deep intense berry red matte.
I am so impressed with the pigmentation of every single shade within the palette, and I’m yet to be disappointed by any of the Huda Beauty eyeshadows.
The Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is such a perfect palette for the winter months if you prefer to wear berry tones, but it’s the kind of palette I’d get a lot of wear from all year round. I liked the look of the Warm Brown Obsessions Palette but it only contains one shimmer and I feel like the shimmers and foils are the best Huda Beauty formula.
The Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is so pretty, and the shadows are pigmented and smooth to blend. I do wish the pale beige was perhaps a beige foil instead to make the palette more versatile but I’m so pleased I chose this palette at £25 over the £42 Naked Cherry Palette especially when there’s only three more shades in the Naked Cherry Palette.
