Huda Beauty Gold Obsessions Palette Review + Giveaway!

by - November 20, 2020

Hi, dolls!
In today's blog post, I will be reviewing the new Huda Beauty Gold Obsessions Palette. This palette is exclusive to Cult Beauty, created by Huda to celebrate their five years of partnership. This 9-pan palette was inspired by honey onyx stone that Huda was putting in her house. If you're interested to see how this palette performs, let's get right into the review!

When I first saw this palette online, I immediately fell in love. You don't usually see gold eyeshadow palettes this good! I have tried many Huda's eyeshadow palettes and to be quite honest with you, I have always prefered her mini palettes than the big ones. This palette reminded me a bit of Huda's Medium Mini Nude eyeshadow palette, but since I don't have that in my collection, I was excited to get the Gold one. Since this palette is exclusive to Cult Beauty only, they are doing free shipping on all Huda's orders until the end of November, so I believe this makes international orders also free of charge!

I've put this palette on my Xmas wish list, but I have later decided to buy it myself in case it gets sold out. It arrived within two days - I was super excited to test it out! This palette swatches like a dream! Quality-wise it's just as good as the mini light nude palette, which is one of my favourites. I haven't noticed much fallout when applying it onto my eyelids, definitely nothing too crazy or annoying. Most of the shimmers in this palette as well as the metallics and toppers will show up better if applied with a finger rather than a brush. This method has actually been something Huda's been advising to do for ages  and I do like it! 

Huda's Gold Obsessions Eyeshadow palette has 4 formulas

A new texture, Gold Flake Metallic Shimmer- a stunning shimmer shade blended with a light pink shimmer base and sprinkled with decadent gold flakes, sure to leave your lids striking gold.
Mattes - Huda's classing matte formula in 3 dynamic shades 
Shimmer Topper - a light-reflecting formula that leaves a pearlescent, peachy-golden glow reminiscent of the golden hour. 
Extra-High Shine Metallics - Huda's classic metallic formulas have been improved to create two high-shine gold foils.

Final Thoughts
This might be the best palette released in 2020! As previously mentioned, I do seem to prefer Huda's mini palettes over her big ones, I just find them to perform much better and they are way easier to carry around. Gold Obsessions palette is amazing, I haven't had any issues while using it. Although I wasn't the biggest fan of Huda's Pastel collection, I do think she stepped up with the formula, making this palette super pigmented and just as good as her Nude collection. I hope this palette doesn't run out of stock on Cult Beauty because it's a great one to have in your collection! Who knows, maybe Huda will add a Silver and Bronze palette and make this a collection too?
