It is safe to say that 2018 has been the year of eyeshadow palettes! Just in the final few months of the year we had Urban Decay’s Naked Cherry, followed by KKW Beauty’s Cherry Blossom, then Anastasia Beverly Hills announced Sultry, Too Faced released their Gingerbread Spice, and last but by no means least, Charlotte Tilbury surprise dropped her Stars In Your Eyes. While all of those palettes are beautiful, we are going to concentrate of the Nude Huda eyeshadow palette today. I’ve been seeing this palette all around social media, especially Instagram, so I couldn’t wait to try it out. Did I need another palette? Probably not, but I couldn’t resist! This palette is beautiful.
The palette retails for $65, which is on the pricier side of palettes (however, it does come with 18 pans which is more than the usual eyeshadow palette). It also comes with a concealer built in, which is actually REALLY helpful while applying these eyeshadows. Out of the 18 shades, 10 are “buttery mattes, 4 multi-reflective shadows, 2 pressed glitters, 1 pressed pearl, and 1 concealer base.”
First Impression- Huda Beauty New Nude Palette:
Look at how gorgeous this palette is! Reading the comments on social media, it seems that people were split on their opinion of the color scheme. A lot of people thought it would be all browns, tans, and true nude colors. Some were thrilled that Huda’s New Nude Palette focused on pinks, purples and mauves because there are so many brown based palettes in the market. I was happy that the palette was the “new” version of nude. Pinks and purples are my favorites and I think they flatter every eye color from green to blue to brown.
This shade range is great for everyday eye looks, night time eye looks and over the top smokey eye looks. You can definitely create a diverse range of looks from this one palette. I would have liked if there was a black shade in the palette to deepen up the looks. Both Love Bite and Spanked don’t both seem necessary in the palette, as the colors are so similar, I wish one of them were black instead. However, when I’m traveling, I’m able to fill that gap with my Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions palette.
Swatches- Huda Beauty New Nude Palette:
I love all of the different formulas and finishes used in this palette and the fact that she included a concealer to make the glitter and shimmers adhere better. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another brand include a concealer in the palette (please correct me if I’m wrong).
The metallic shimmers are a mix of chunks from multiples shades and they include glitters. They are actually my favorite part of the palette. They look chunky in the pan, kind of like gems, but when you swatch them of put them on your eyes they add so much to the look and really just take it to another level. I’ve never seen a shimmer like this.
I absolutely love all of my Huda eyeshadow palettes. After playing with this palette for a month, I have to say that I am really enjoying it. I’m able to create such a variety of looks with this palette. Overall, this palette is easy to work with, the shades are pigmented, and the color selection is fun and flattering.
I found that all of the shades showed up true to color and depth on the eye, with the exception of the more brown shades. The brown shades pulled slightly more red/ pink on my eye lid. This was surprising since some of them look so cool toned in the pan. The matte shades have some kick back (nothing unusual though if you’re used to Huda shadows or Anastasia Beverly Hills shadows). I recommend that the first time you’re using the palette, do your eyes first. This will help you to get adjusted to the kick back. I have no problems doing my foundation first with this palette, as long as I have translucent powder on my cheeks to catch fall out. But, it is something to keep in mind.
It was very smart to include a concealer this in the palette. It’s amazing when I’m trying to set down a base to prime the lid. It works best if you apply it with your finger. In my opinion, the best purpose for this concealer would be to either prime the lid, or tap on the center of the lid with your finger tip for a halo eye.
