Today’s post is going to be about the very famous and popular Rose Gold Palette by Huda Beauty. To be very honest with you guys, I bought this palette when I was a newbie to makeup and I didn’t have the slightest bit of an idea about anything. It so luckily happened that this palette was newly released back then and I heard a lot of good things about it which led me to try it out.
A review is all about being honest with your opinion, and I have to tell you guys, I completely ADORE this palette. It’s my go-to palette and I rarely use any other one. There have been mixed reviews about this product, mostly regarding the packaging, but let me tell you guys why I love it.
The palette comes in a black, cardboard case including the Huda Beauty signature eyes. It’s a very lightweight package and has a transparent, plastic, flip-open cover. I’m okay with the appearance of the palette but it would’ve been better with a more luxurious type of look, similar to some of the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes which are also made of cardboard.
This palette has got all the colors I use most, in my daily makeup routine. I haven’t been able to put it down since I got it, and also use it for contouring, highlighting as well as my eyebrows. The colors are very versatile and there are so many looks you can do with it.
The palette has very warm-toned shades with different reds and pinks. It could be ideal for someone who uses bright colors and loves shiny or pigmented shades, but on the other hand, it could be a bit devastating for people who prefer subtle or dull shades. Hence, the mixed reviews.
In total, this palette contains 18 shades. It’s difficult to find an eye-shadow palette in which you love all the colors but this is such a palette for me. There are three different types of eye shade finishes in the palette:
1. Textured or Foiled Shadows
There are 6 textured shadows that are dense, foil pressed pigments. These are really creamy and pigmented and are applied best with your fingers. They give a really gorgeous look to the eyes.
2. Pressed Shadows
There are 2 pressed pearl shadows in the palette. They are also creamy and have a fine shimmer to them, are pigmented and easily blended. I sometimes use these as highlighters or on the tear duct areas of my eyes.
3. Matte Shadows
These shadows are not powdery at all and are very fine, velvety shadows. There is definitely no fall-out of the shadows. They look amazing when worn on the eyes and swatching them on your hands doesn’t do them justice.
All the shades are beautiful and highly pigmented. I usually start working with the less intense colors and build my way up to the more intense ones. Also, the best way to apply the textured shadows is with your fingers. If not, another way I use them is to take a flat shader brush and spray the Prep ‘n’ Prime by MAC on it and then apply onto your eyelids.
Overall, I am absolutely in LOVE with this palette and use it regularly. I bought it for Rs. 8500, and although it is very costly, I don’t regret buying it because I get my money’s worth out of it.
