Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette Review and Swatches

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Mini Palette Review and Swatches

Huda Kattan has repeatedly broken the internet with every new release. The new Obsessions palettes were no exception - Cult Beauty had some pretty serious traffic on launch night! I've never been able to stomach the price point of her larger palettes, but the new Huda Beauty Obsessions palettes are available for a much more palatable wallet hit.

Now, her larger palettes have been the subject of a bit of internet controversy - high price, mixed quality, fallout ++ with the glitters; but others loving the blendability and shade selection. Not something I can comment on, but rest assured, I was willing to ignore all mixed-review chat and go in with a clear mind.

I have been seriously won over by this little powerhouse. As someone who very rarely hits pan on a shadow, I actually love the dinky size of this palette (about the size of the palm of my hand) as it's very portable, and there aren't too many colours - the shade selection is thoroughly cohesive throughout, well edited, and there are more mattes than shimmers. Hooray!

The matte shades are really smooth, soft and blendable. The darker shades do require a little building, but I am not averse to this - they blend so beautifully that a rich, professional looking smokey eye is actually achieveable for application dunces like myself. The shimmers are quite dense and firmly pressed - not dissimilar to Kat Von D's Metal Crush shadows - and I find they are best applied with a finger. I always use a really good primer for any eyeshadow, and find that every shade wears well, starting to fade at around the 7-8 hour mark. I've not experienced any fallout issues. the top-right mauvey-taupe shade is absolutely beautiful; sheered out with a brush over the lid by itself, it has a similar effect to my beloved Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock.

Overall - massively impressed. Considering another purchase. Smokey Obsessions, you're next.
