So I got mine yesterday in the mail with tax it was around $72 it was $71 something.
The packaging is amazing it's beautiful it looks like huda put a lot of hard work on it , this time they put a mirror in their palette which I appreciate.
The packaging says that it's a talc free easy to blend and high pigmentation palette.
Ok I do agree with it somehow.
It also says that it Has
4 ready to wear layered textures
8 buttery mattes (love them)
6 pressed pearls (which are sheer)
3 duo chrome
1 daring glitter (which is just a pressed glitter)
My thoughts as I mentioned above in bracket shadows are very pigmented the mattes are my favorites they are creamy and smooth they almost feel similar to too faced just peachy mattes. They are smooth and blendable unlike the rose gold mattes however I liked them too.
There are two bad shades in this palette which are the reason I give it 3 stars , I can forgive the purple shade called amethyst which is patchy but you can still use it with a fix plus to get more pigmentation the shade cosmo doesn't fit in this palette I mean for $65 and with tax this palette is around $72
Which is very pricey and didn't expected a pressed glitter which isn't even pressed hardly in this palette just when I was swatching I put my finger inside and it literally took the a big chunk out of it , and it is now all over my clothes my hands and even on my palette. It's very hard to remove cuz the chunks are big I literally pressed it back but some of it is still on my finger. You need to work hard to remove this glitter it's that messy. I will attach pictures too. I saw huda justifying on Snapchat when people asked her about this shade COSMO that it's a pressed glitter and you can just use glitter glue or fix plus I mean I would I invest in other stuff and spend money to get glue and fix plus to use this palette ??? Like seriously I'm paying $72 and now I have to buy a glue and a setting pray just to use this glitter. I think this palette isn't worth of $65 I would try to return it cuz I don't want my stuff full of glitter. I would never pay $65 plus tax for this palette I don't recommend this at all! This palette should be around $40 it's a nice palette but this shade COSMO DOESNT FIT HERE. It's north worth $65.
I don't know why a lot of YT aren't honest about this palette.
Now lets get into the quality of the palette and the formula.
The formula is pretty great. It's no Natasha Denona Eyeshadow but it is pretty high quality. They are pigmented and easy to blend for the most part. In this palette compared to the first palette, the Rose Gold, there are a lot less glitter packed shades and more metallic pigmented shades which work a heck of a lot better. Of course there are a couple shades like that and they are not so great right off the bat. If you try to swatch them you get very far apart glitter specks with no pigment. It's pretty annoying but maybe it can be worked with.
The matte and satin and metallic shades are all pigmented and soft and finely milled with minimal kick up and hardly any fall out whatsoever.
The colors blend together perfectly and as long as you use a primer as a base. You don't need an eye primer for that as much as you've been led to believe you do. Any face primer, concealer or foundation and even lotion can work great as a moisturizing base that can help make your eyeshadow last longer and blend easier and go on more pigmented. These all can.
My only issue with this palette is that no matter how many looks I attempt to make they all end up looking pretty much the same. You get maybe 3 or 3 really involved looks and even they aren't all that dissimilar. I used totally different colors than I used yesterday and the two pics I took showed how very similar they were which was quite disappointing and I really wanted this palette because it was so unique and similar to the ND lila palette I thought I could essentially get the same colors or very similar colors in a good quality palette for half the cost and that's what I did but I didn't get exactly what I wanted.
It works good and the colors are pretty for night, evening, summer nights, vacation, date night and fall.
If you don't own these colors in your collection go and find them. This is a great palette that will last a while and look good on every skin tone.
I definitely recommend. Only buy from approved retailers. That's sephora maybe cult beauty site and the huda beauty site. Trying to find a deal on ebay, mercari, posh mark, etc. Will only get you a fake palette. And it may look similar but its not at all. The colors will be completely differwnt as well as the finishes and that's best case scenario. These places aren't overseen by laws and the FDA so fake make up has given people extreme rashes, burned people, blinded people, made them have serious issues. Its a real possibility and that's worse case scenario. I know its expensive but you're only throwing money away and will be further away from owning the palette because you didn't save that money. So be safe in your shopping but do get your hands on it if you can.

The only downside is that the packaging could’ve been sturdier (aka no cardboard) since it’s such a huge and rather expensive palette I would’ve preferred a plastic case, but I won’t even take off a star for that. If you’re an experienced or passionate makeup lover who can play with warm tones and shimmers, this is the best palette to get!
