REVIEW TIME. Okay y’all I know my last few reviews haven’t been the most positive, but this one I assure you is very positive. I wanted to review this palette that I have had for about a month now. The Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions palette caught my eye ever since it was release (and more are being released which are definitely on my list). I don’t have many expectations for eye shadow palettes. I don’t mind an all shimmer palette because I’m a fan of one shimmer shade on the lid and that being my whole look (hence my love for the Naked 3).
First, the Sephora description: “Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions: Featuring two duo chrome shimmers and seven creamy, matte shadows, this palette combines warm shades of burnt orange and dusty pink, for a daring look that delivers a warm glow”. Everything about this description is accurate. I wanted the palette for the yellow shade and I have been enjoying wearing it as one wash of colour with a shimmer in the middle, either from this palette or from another single shadow.
I feel like this might be an odd time to review a coral palette because we are going into fall, but I think this palette has the fall tones we all love. It has this beautiful burnt yellow shade along with a rustic orange and dusty pinks that can take you into any fall look.
The formula. The mattes are just as creamy as described. They blend out beautifully on the lid and I love starting with a tapping motion and then once the colour is dispersed buffing it all over. The real stars of this palette though are the beautiful duo chrome shades. The two shimmery shades are every so slightly different but both look like you are wearing more than one eye shadow shade on your lid. The first shade in the first row is more of red coral shade with a rose gold shift whereas the second duo chrome is a coral peach shade with reflective specks of yellow.
Longevity. This palette lasts all day. I always use a primer so take that into account, but I find these last well and still look good at the end of the day!
Overall rating. 5/5 stars. I know its been awhile since I’ve allotted such a grade to a product. I love this palette and this formula. From my friend who have the other shades, they say the formula is wonderful so I don’t think it will vary no matter which colour story suits your fancy. I think these would be good work palettes as well, if you work in a creative environment or are just living on the edge with your makeup on the day to day, these are perfect. Not to mention the travel friendly size and the wide colour selection!
