Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Swatch In Mint Green Matte

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Swatch In Mint Green Matte

Hello everyone and welcome to the last swatch from the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette. This swatching journey has proven to be less than satisfactory and the ending hue is going to be an anticlimactic finish, because it kind of sucks. We are looking at a mint green matte shade today and it is a color that I don’t think would look good on anyone. You can check it out in the middle of the top row:

This shade looks not so much like an eyeshadow as it does a color correcting cure when you have any redness on your skin. The green looks bruised and sickly and I feel like it would wash out literally any skin tone that it’s worn on. Out of all of the swatches that we have done, this color is probably the most disappointing, because I feel like it is completely unwearable. The space used for this eyeshadow could have been used for another color but, I probably wouldn’t end up liking that one, either! SMH.

All in all, I would award the Emerald Obsessions palette by Huda Beauty with a three out of ten. It was a great idea and I initially loved this palette. But, upon further inspection, the quality of the eyeshadow proved to be not the best and the colors were either unusable or looked totally different on than what they did in the packaging. #notimpressed

Hello everyone and welcome to the second to last swatch from the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette. This swatching experience has proven to be kind of disappointing as far as my ratio to colors I like and don’t like are, but it has been an informative experience all the same. I discovered a few new colors as well as ones that absolutely wouldn’t work for me and a brand that I don’t think I will bother with in the future – all of which saves me time and money, so that’s always nice! Check out the chocolate matte shade that we are swatching today in the bottom left corner:

^^^ The first heart is the eyeshadow wet and the second is when it’s dry.

Once again, I am not head over heels for this matte, slightly lighter than milk chocolate shade. Maybe because it’s not rich enough for my liking or because it looks dull as dishwater, this eyeshadow is another miss in my book. The only time I can see myself using this color is if I am trying to achieve a brown smokey eye MOTD but, even then, I prefer for my eyeshadows to have a little extra something something to it and this one is definitely lacking in that department. -____-

After seeing almost all of the eyeshadows swatched from this palette would you buy it? Why or why not? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Hello everyone! We have officially finished taking a closer look at all of the glitter shades from the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette and now we are onto the matte colors. Today, we are going to look at the emerald matte hue, which you can see on the middle right:

Although this emerald matte shade is pretty, it’s not my favorite one that the palette offers. I have never been too keen on matte eyeshadows, especially since I am a matte lipstick girl and I don’t want matte overload happening on my MOTD. This is actually the first matte shade I’ve ever owned and, I can see why I’ve never bought it before, because it does like kind of dull. I like my eyeshadows to have that little extra something going on with it, like a metallic shine or glitter but I don’t want it looking too glitzy. The matte hue is nice, but there’s not enough going on with it that would make me feel so inclined to wear it.

I might experiment with this color as an eyeliner, but I already have a metallic emerald liner that I like a lot so we’ll see what happens. First impressions, though? I don’t think that I would wear this one. #whompwhomp

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Swatch In Glitter Fern Green

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Swatch In Glitter Fern Green

Hi everyone! Today, we are going to discuss the last glitter shade in the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette. It is a fern green shade and it’s pretty-ish, but just not the right color for me. You can see the eyeshadow in the top right hand corner of the palette along with the rest of the colors below:

Now, let’s take a closer look:

^^^ The first heart is the eyeshadow wet and the second one is when it’s dry.

Sadly, this color is another one that I don’t think I can see myself wearing. Although it’s a nice eyeshadow, the hue is just too light for my liking. And it looks rather dull, despite the twinkling glitter. With really pale skin and a preference towards dark clothing, my makeup always has to be more saturated, because anything less just makes me look sickly.

I’m a bit disappointed with this palette. I feel like it was a good idea, but the colors weren’t executed well as far as color quality goes. And, the literal quality of the eyeshadow isn’t the best to me, either. It’s really dusty and you need a lot of the product to get complete coverage. There are certain shades that I do plan on using, but I can easily say that the eyeshadows that I’ve used from drugstore brands have provided a more satisfying experience than this high end one.

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Swatch In A Questionable Shade

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Swatch In A Questionable Shade

Hiii everyone! We are still not done swatching from the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette, so we are getting right back to it with a color that I am just not sure of. This shade was very much a case of it looking like one color in the package and applying as something totally different. Today, we will be talking about the eyeshadow on the middle left:

At first glance, I thought that this color was going to be a deep, forest green and I was pretty excited for it. But, unfortunately, it swatched as a shade of brown with some green undertones to it. Take a closer look and you’ll see what I mean:

^^^ The first heart is the eyeshadow wet and the second one is when it’s dry.

As pretty as this palette is, the colors are definitely worth taking a better look into before you buy it, because you might be left feeling a bit disappointed. Almost every shade that I’ve swatched seems to stray from the color that you’re initially seeing and that’s certainly off putting if you’re spending money and expecting something completely different.

I had high hopes for this color originally, because I love shades of green. But, I also do like brown eyeshadow, too. Not this shade, though. I like strictly brown hues when it comes to eye makeup, because brown with green undertones just makes for a swampy color and it is so unappealing to me. In the words of the title of this post, this shade is questionable at best and I don’t plan on using it.

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Swatch In Chocolate Shimmer

Hello! Today, we are going to take a look at a lovely shade of chocolate brown from the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette. With the slightest hint of shimmer and a deep, rich hue, this color was a hit for me. Finally! The eyeshadow we are chatting about is in the middle of the bottom row:

I think that the shades in the brown family are extremely underrated when it comes to eye makeup. It makes for such a rich, warm, and different MOTD and I really like that. You can create such a nice, smokey effect with brown makeup and, in a lot of ways, it’s more striking than your traditional grey smokey eye because it’s not seen as often. I fell in love with a gorgeous shade of brown in my Elf Nude Rose Gold palette and, since then, I’ve learned to never underestimate the power of a delicious shade of chocolate eyeshadow.

I like this Chocolate Shimmer shade from the Emerald Obsessions palette for a few reasons. First, I like that, for the most part, it is a pure shade of brown. As you can see, there is a bit of gold mixed in but, I see it more as a caramel drizzle, as opposed to a tone that overpowers the whole eyeshadow, which is a problem that I had with some of the other colors. I also am happy that the shimmer in this shade is fairly subtle. It’s not too much or too little and it allows for the color to still be sophisticated while still having that extra touch of fun. So pretty!

Hello! We are going to keep trucking through the Emerald Obsessions eyeshadow palette by Huda Beauty because, as a benevolent blogger, I give the people what they want! In today’s post, we are going to be swatching another one of the gold shimmer shades that the palette offers, which you can see in the bottom right corner:

And, now, let’s take a closer look:

^^^ The first heart is the eyeshadow wet and the second one is when it’s dry.

I was looking forward to swatching the second gold shimmer shadow in this palette but, unfortunately, it missed the mark for me like the first one. But, unlike the gold shade in the top left corner having the tinge of green to it that I really didn’t care for, this hue is just way too yellow-y for my liking. I thought the color was going to be more saturated but, it ended up applying in a sad, pale yellow both when wet and dry. Whomp whomp.

I don’t plan on using this color, because all it is going to do is wash me out big time. With really pale skin and red hair, my complexion takes to the bold, rich colors. Anything too dull and it just makes me look sunken and blah. Not a good look. Fingers crossed that the swatch in tomorrow’s post makes for a good one, because my batting average of only liking one of the three colors viewed is pretty weak!
