Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette

Ever since I saw the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette ($85 CAD) I’ve been on the fence of  biting the steep price tag and purchasing it. Although this palette comes with 18 shades and breaks down to about $5 CAD per shade, I knew going into this that not all shades are usable from prior swatches I’ve seen. Alas, the amazing colour assortment. select superstar shadows in this palette, the 20% off Sephora VIB sale and the fact that this is rumored to be discontinued put me over the edge and here we are today.

The palette contains 8 shimmer shades and 10 matte shades. There are 2 glitter shades (rose gold and trust fund) that deposit a hint of sparkles with not much pigment behind it. The other shimmers are pigmented, smooth and easy to apply. Most mattes are soft and pigmented while a few have a drier, stiffer texture and dont blend out as easily (black truffle and maneater).

Considering I went into knowing the shortcomings. Would I prefer that all shadows worked better? Yes. From the sounds of it, feels like Huda leant from this palette and got her Dessert Dusk palette right if you’re a fan of the shades.

This purchase was more emotional than rational (isn’t all makeup?) so although not perfect I still have to Beauty Swatch approve it because I do use it everyday since I bought it. The colours are just so inspiring to me and can take me from a quiet work day to a night out easily. For me, this is beauty swatched approved!

    Oh my, that’s so gorgeous! I’ve been wanting the Desert Dusk palette, but this one is so gorgeous too! I’ve just bought the Mauve Obsessions little palette and really love the color payoff. I might have to splurge on this one!
