Hiii everyone and welcome to our first swatch post from the Emerald Obsessions palette by Huda Beauty. For those of you who need a reminder, the palette looks like this:
Today, we are going to be talking about the gold glitter shade in the top left corner. Take a look at some pics and let’s get to it:
^^^ The first heart is the eyeshadow wet and the second one is when it’s dry.
I’m going to be honest, my first impression of the quality of this eyeshadow is not the best. I have never used Huda Beauty products before but, when I applied the dry shadow, it was really crumbly and hard to spread. Even when wet, the color just didn’t have the nice, smooth application that should come with putting on an eyeshadow.
Not only that, but taking it off was a major pain in the behind, too. I took a washcloth with micellar water to my swatched hand and the glitter just would not come off. So, my left hand is definitely looking very Edward Cullen a la Twilight right now. All things glitter is fun when it comes to makeup but, it needs to be able to come off just as well as it applies and the Huda Beauty eyeshadow did not have either of these important factors going for it.
And, as far as the color goes, I’m shockingly not very fond of it. I love me a gold shadow more than anything but, it has this really off putting pale green undertone to it, which makes the color look sickly rather than decadent. I get that they wanted this shade to have a hint of green in it, because it is the Emerald Obsessions palette. But, was this really necessary? No, because I can’t see myself using this color and it was initially my favorite one. Whomp whomp.
How does everyone feel about Huda Beauty products? What is your favorite eyeshadow palette? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
