I did indeed purchase two of the three new Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes ($29) and I’m here to review them today for you! I absolutely love these to death and I will say you need them for your very own.

I am still enjoying Fall and I’m burying my head in the sand about Christmas coming! Let me hold on to the season just a little while longer! The Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette shades I picked sure are helping me do that.

Ok, full disclosure, you probably don’t need these. After using them I sort felt like hey, I can get the same look from a million Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes I own and even the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette but screw it! Sometimes you just need to ride that dupe wave for all it’s worth.

Jump ahead if you want to ride the wave with me!

Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette launched recently in three shade selections for $29 each and hold nine eyeshadows that are 0.03 oz each. I picked up the Medium Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette and the Rich Nude Eyeshadow Palette. Don’t quote me on this but I believe both palettes contain shades that are safe for eyes. The Neon Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes did have unsafe eye shades deemed so by the FDA however, I see no such issues with the new Nude Obsessions Palettes but please do chime in if you know further info. I experience no irritation nor staining using any of the eyeshadows in either shade. I love the size of these! They are super travel-friendly and don’t take much storage space. Each one has a faux croc face plate and are probably some of the more elegant Obsessions Palettes I own! These are Made in China.

I have most of the Obsession Eyeshadow Palettes and in my experience they can be hit or miss but that never sways me from buying them because most have been hits for me with a few misses. This formula really isn’t for everyone though. If you’re expecting really soft, silky eyeshadows look elsewhere. Huda’s mattes are very firm and dense but for some reason they work great for me. I feel like I have a lot of control when applying these due to that firm texture that lacks super powdery kick up and fall out. I get a really good blend on her mattes and I’m able to build them beautifully. Oddly enough, I buy them for the mattes and not so much the shimmers. I just really like her mattes! They always look really smooth on my lids with plenty of pigment! I did struggle a little bit with these this time around! A few shades faded on me which never happens. So, I would suggest eyeshadow primer to keep them wearing long and strong wearing. The shimmer/metallic shades are equally firm but have a thin, creaminess that applied best with my fingers versus a brush as I did struggle a little lifting the color up with a brush. All the shades had fantastic pigment. Both palettes have five mattes each and the other shades are shimmery metallics.

Each of the palettes is available in Light, Medium, and Rich shades meant to flatter certain skin tones but honestly, I think any of the three should work across many different skin tones so, don’t let that sway you or prevent you from buying a shade that you might feel won’t suit your skin tone. I really don’t think “nude” is the perfect description for these as The palettes are all very cohesive with shades that work well together although I do think both needed a few lighter for more contrast.

I can’t lie about the dupes here. I can probably created the same look using Urban Decay Naked Cherry or the Huda Rich Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette. The shades are quite similar! Likewise for the Nuda Medium Nude Obsessions Palette as many of these shades I already own from palettes like the Too Faced Butter Rum Eyeshadow Palette I just recently purchased. Wines, cranberries, coppers, and burnt oranges are a dime a dozen lately in a variety of different palettes on the market that have launched way before Huda’s Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette.

It didn’t stop me from loving these though. I’ve already gotten so many uses out of them and I’ll get plenty more into the season ahead. They are just colors that are very much me!

If you’ve had success with Huda’s Eyeshadow Palettes in the past I urge you to take a look at these new ones! I think you’ll love them! I know I did.
