I featured the Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette within my Huda Beauty Haul and I was dying to swatch the shades as soon as I’d finished photographing it. I already own the Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Palette and the Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions Palette, and I really love them so I knew I needed at least one of the new palettes from their new Precious Stones collection.
I was really tempted by the Emerald Obsessions as greens are my favourite ‘colour’ to wear on my eyes but I wasn’t loving the matte shades as much as the shimmers, so I decided upon the Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette instead although I have a feeling the Emerald Obsessions and Amethyst Obsessions Palettes will make their way into my online basket very soon.
The Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is £25 like all of the Mini Obsessions Palettes, and there are five different gemstone inspired palettes within the Precious Stones series. I think this range is really clever and each of the five palettes contains shades synonymous with their individual gemstone, and the packaging is stunning with a raised gemstone design with each of the facets representing the shades inside the palette.
“This palette is inspired by the golden tone of the topaz stone: the Firestone. In ancient Egypt, the stone was a symbol of the Sun God, and this fusion of gold, rich browns and amber shades is perfect for creating your very own goddess vibe. Whether you want a neutral or a bold look, these 5 creamy mattes and 4 popping duochrome shades will elevate your look.
All of the Huda Beauty Obsessions Palettes contain nine powder eyeshadows which each weigh 1.1 grams each which is almost a full size eyeshadow per shade. Due to how small the packaging is, some people berate the value for money but it’s actually really decent value as you’re getting nine almost full sized shadows for £25 and the quality is exceptional.
The packaging may be mini but there’s no excessive packaging, and they’ve still managed to give us a mirror within the lid and they’re just perfect for travel especially as you have a mixture of finishes within each palette. The Topaz palette really caught my eye as I felt like the shades were a little more unique than those you’d typically get inside a neutral eyeshadow palette and I liked that the palette had a good mix of buttery mattes to creamy metallics.
1 – a bright orange matte.
2 – a burnt orange metallic.
3 – an orange matte.
4 – a warm toned gold foil.
5 – a pale peach matte.
6 – a deep warm toned brown foil.
7 – a dark warm toned brown matte.
8 – a deep terracotta matte.
9 – an orangey toned bronze foil with golden glitter.
As always my swatches are without primer and as you can see, the pigmentation is amazing. The quality of the Huda Beauty shadows wows me every single time I get a new palette with the mattes being smooth, non-dusty and easy to blend, and the metallics and foils are exceptionally smooth, multidimensional and intense.
If you’re new to the Huda Beauty eyeshadows, one of the eleven different Mini Obsessions Palettes are such a great starting palette as you get to try multiple finishes and I haven’t found one disappointing shade in any of the many palettes I own. I typically prefer cooler toned shadows but the warm toned within the Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette has totally won me over and it’s a palette I’d highly recommend if you love wearing warm toned eyeshadows.
