So we realised we actually haven’t done a makeup post in a while so we thought we would do a review on the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette! So this is actually Huda Beauty’s second palette and they always look AMAZING! So if you want to know what we thought about this palette, then keep reading!
So first off, the packaging and colours of this palette, look absolutely AMAZING! The actual palette has a pair of eyes on it and under different light, different parts of the eyes light up creating a 3D effect which we think is pretty cool! So her first palette didn’t actually come with a mirror so we thought it was good that for this new release, she actually put in a big mirror on the top side of the palette!
Now onto the actual product! So when we first swatched the shades with our fingers we were not impressed! The matte shades were quite chalky and there was a lot of fall out! We found that the other shades performed better with the glitter and topping shades coming out very pigmented and just SO GORGEOUS! However, after actually using a brush to apply the product, we found the shades to be very blendable with minimal fallout so we were quite surprised!
The topper shades which are basically to be applied on top of other eyeshadows, however such as Twilight and Cosmo we found maybe because of the glitter that there was quite a bit of fall out. Although the matte shades seemed quite chalky when we swatched them with out fingers, they came out PERFECT on the eye but in the pan, there was a lot of kick back especially with the lighter shades such as Eden.
Although there were some things we didn’t love about the palette, overall we did LOVE the colours and as they do apply gorgeously on the eyes with the pigment being absolutely STUNNING, we can definitely put up with any fall out! We also love the fact that the range of colours in the palette can easily be used for both day time and night time by adding the toppers and pearl shades to create a more night time look!
