If you ask me about one brand with the best eye shadow palettes out there, well without a doubt I would said Huda Beauty, from the texture, quality, pigmentation to the shades selection. I previously tried two palettes from the brand I was quite surprised by the high quality that not even other top luxury brands have.
Certainly not the most typical palette we normally see, is not only nudes, not only matte or shimmery texture, The Mercury Retrograde Palette features a cosmic blend of 18 shades and textures, balancing cool and warm tones, to deliver infinite possibilities, this palette is filled with easy-to-use combinations of dusty coppers, rosy pinks, and golden taupe, with pops of purple and blue. It features nine buttery mattes, six high-shine creamy metallics, one glitter powder charged with silver sparkles, and two sheer multi-reflective shadows for an out-of-this-world glow.
At the beginning I thought that it wouldn’t be suitable for me as tend to to stick to the classic looks but once I had it my hand and started playing with it i realised that is all what you need in a palette, different texture, matte, shimmer, nudes and easy to wear shades for everyday make up and a bit more of colour if you fancy wearing something different one day or you have a party and need more colour or shimmer, specially if you are minimalist with your make up stash having this palette would be a good investment because is basically many palettes in one. It has quite a good selection so you can easily create different looks and play with your creativity.
Now formula and performance, they are very creamy not powdery at all, I found them easy to work with, they blend beautifully with a brush but with the glitter shimmery shades I prefer to apply them with my fingers and probably many people would agree that is easier doing this way to avoid getting a mess. They are very pigmented and they don’t crease or fade way easily, really high quality product.
Now I have to say Huda eye palettes aren’t affordable but particularly in this case I think is worth the investment, you have a a massive palettes with a good selection of different shades, great quality, quantity wise the shades are big enough, different looks in one palette, for me is a really good deal especially comparing to other luxe brands with less quality, less quantity or boring shades options fr similar price or even more expensive, not a surprise why this palette is so popular.
