Mini Product Review & Haul ***Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette***

Price & Purchase Process & Packaging:

The reviews for the infamous Huda Beauty Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette were mixed, to say the least, but I particularly enjoyed the shadow formula and the color selection. Ideally, this is what prompted the purchase of Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette, which I ordered from Sephora Online and paid $65 plus tax and $0 for shipping because I am a VIB Rouge member. I ordered the palette the day it went live on Sephora’s website, and I didn’t encounter any errors in terms of my ability to order the palette and it was in stock when I ordered it. It arrived 2 days later, in Sephora’s customary, underwhelming packaging (Sephora, take a hint from Beautylish) and the palette was undamaged.

Pigmentation & Color Payoff & Performance:

One of the reasons that I purchased this palette was because of the strong purple/magenta tones in the palette, which incidentally, look amazing on my dark eyes. The packaging was quite inventive and sexy, which an image of what I assume to be the owner, Huda Kattan’s beautiful eyes. I was quite impressed with the linear, cohesive layout of the palette, which makes creating an eye look easy for beginners and advanced eyeshadow wearers alike. The palette is mapped out in such a way that you can easily create looks that either everyday appropriate, fun and frisky, or alluring and sultry. The depth and density of the shadows are conducive for creamy, and smooth mattes, iridescent shimmers, and spectacular duochromes! I was impressed with the Rose Gold Palette, but the Desert Dusk doesn’t disappoint either.

Overall Product Presentation:
I am a fan of Huda Beauty’s Eyeshadow Palettes, but if I had to choose between the original Rose Gold Palette and the Desert Dusk, I would choose the later. Not because of any significant difference in quality, but purely based on what looks best on my eyes. Either way, the palette is quite beautiful and although it is an investment and I can appreciate financial concerns, I highly doubt that you would be disappointed with this product!
