The 2020 reinvention of the best-loved New Nude Palette, this marries smooth, buttery mattes with five, high-shine metallics, three multi-reflective marble cream shimmers, one matte marble cream and one never–before-seen shimmering gloss hybrid, with encapsulated bronze and berry pearls to elevate your beauty look to cover-worthy heights. Spanning shades of tan, toffee, espresso and sand with hypnotically beautiful, foil-effect glimmers in shades of plum, berry and flame, this edit will quickly become your go-to – trusted to take you from coffee to cocktails with just a quick flick of a brush.
Huda says of her inspiration, “While nudes are nothing new, I wanted to update the classic colorway to empower beauty fans in a bold, modern way. To help you strip bare to your fiercest and naughtiest self!”
And her best how-to-work-it hacks? “Start off by building up your base with the matte cream marble and matte powder shadows. Use a densely-packed brush or your finger to pick up the metallics and cream shimmer shades and blend onto the lids in small circular motions for an illuminating finish. You can build an extra, more intense layer by pressing on metallics for a glam high-shine foil effect.
When I hear “nude” I can’t help to think “ugh another palette” most of the palettes in the market are quite similar but I do know Huda Kattan tend to bring things to another level, so when I saw the shades on the bad boy couldn’t helped to think “ok maybe I need another nude palette”
These nudes are not really the typical ones we would fin in an eye palette as they are brownish but more towards the burgundy undertones and not beige/brown ones, so it’s basically different from the nude palettes I own, and to be honest I much prefer to have this than cherry palettes from where I would use one or two shades as they wouldn’t be wearable for everyday. On this palette all the colours re really easy to wear from a very full or light eye make up look, the colour selection is very wearable and trendy for everyday or for a night look as we have matte and shimmer.
I always judge the eye shadow by how it performs with the brush and not with swatches, my experience with this one nice, I haven’t tried any other Huda palette’s so can’t compare, but they are very creamy and pigmented, at the beginning I thought it would be tough to blend because how strong the colours are and the pigmentation but no if you stick to the rule of taking small amount with your brush you can build the look easily and without much blending effort. they worked very well even without ye primer that I tend to forget most of the time to apply.
My final thoughts, it’s a very nice palette, it’s a bit pricey but I have seen many other palettes that are terrible basic and with far less shades for similar pricey even more expensive and this one is quite different, a reinvented nude concept with a great quality, so yes it’s worth getting it.
