Huda Beauty New Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Late last year Huda Beauty launched their newest palette to date, the Huda Beauty New Nude Eyeshadow Palette. As soon as I glanced my eyes on it, I knew I had to have it. A few months lately I was kindly treated to it for my Birthday from Josh. I let out a little 'eeeek' when I opened it(although I knew I was getting it anyway). I previously tried the Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette(review here) and I was so impressed. It was the only Eyeshadow Palette I used for months. I couldn't wait to see what was in store with the New Nude Palette.
Huda has put her own spin on a nude eyeshadow palette, including a mixture of fresh nudes with blush, mauve, taupe and beige neutrals alongside a few striking copper, pink and gold jewel tones. It's completely beguiling, and it's nice to see something completely different to the usual nude eyeshadow palettes that are currently on the market at the moment.

The packaging is large but slimline cardboard with a magnetic closure to make sure that all eyeshadows stay intact, should you wish to travel with it. Inside the palette you'll find a decent sized mirror too, which again, is perfect for travelling. It's definitely one I'll be taking away with me when I go away(if the time ever comes).  The outer packaging is absolutely beautiful with the blush pink and the word 'Nude' in a holographic effect. I think it's a wonderful touch.

 It is the priciest eyeshadow palette I own, costing an eye watering £56. Each eyeshadow pan is 0.69oz/19.7g which I think is pretty incredible. It seems you're getting value for money here in this case.
The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette consists of an array of eighteen eyeshadows, including ten mattes which are formulated with aloe vera and coconut oil, four duo chromes, two glitters, infused with innovative silicones and one pressed pearl, combined with acacia, jojoba and sunflower wax. There's also a concealer shade within the palette which is a little unsual for an eyeshadow palette, but handy nonetheless.

- Secret (warm pink matte)

- Raw (medium reddish-brown matte)
- Charmed (deep, warm copper metallic)
- Teddy (soft peachy-brown matte)
 I am absolutely living for this colour story. The selection of shades are predominantly warm tones but there are also a few cool tones in there too. The mattes are very pigmented. You only need to dip your brush into them lightly to get incredible colour pay off. They are very soft and blendable too.

As nice as the mattes are, the stars of the palette for me are the four duo chrome/metallics and the pressed pearl. The duo chromes glide onto the lid ever so beautifully. They are so easy to work with, however they are best applied with a finger or a damp brush. I absolutely love the shifts in colour in different lighting. The pressed pearl is soft and buttery to the touch. Again, it is best applied with your finger or a damp brush(I much prefer just using my ring finger though). It's true to the colour in the pan. I love using this all over the lid or in the middle when doing a halo eye. It really stands out and it builds up well on top of the mattes, without losing any of the colour or shimmer.
 The glitters are some of the most lovely shades, however these need a little bit of a helping hand to apply. I prefer to put a base down prior to applying the glitters such as a glitter primer or eyeshadow primer as I can build the glitter up without the glitter falling down onto my face and it keeps them in place.

The concealer shade was a bit of a strange inclusion. I do think it's a lovely idea though, especially as I'm partial to a cut crease eye look. The concealer shade appears to be a little yellow based in its pan but that colour doesn't quite translate onto the lid. It looks quite sheer when applied but it has that thick and tacky feel and texture which is perfect for applying eyeshadow, however due to that sticky texture the eyeshadows in the palette can easily get embedded within it. Maybe if the shade was a little more opaque and it had some form of a protective film over it, I'd be inclined to use it more often. For now, I'll be sticking with my usual concealer for cut crease looks.

I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette. I've been using this so often lately. If you've never tried a Huda Beauty eyeshadow palette before, then I really recommend giving this a go. Yes, it is a little pricey at £56 but I really think you get exactly what you pay for. It's very impressive. I'm hoping to add a few more Huda Beauty eyeshadow palettes to my collection now. I have my eyes on the Desert Dusk and Rose Gold remastered palettes next.

You can purchase the Huda Beauty New Nude Eyeshadow Palette from Cult Beauty and Feel Unique.
