Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes – Review, Swatches, and Makeup Looks (Warm Brown Obsessions and Smokey Obsessions)

The Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes are four teeny-tiny eyeshadow palettes which contain full sized pans of eye shadows in various ranges. I recall hearing Huda say in one of her snaps that these are basically full-sized eyeshadows housed in small, compact palettes. She basically said something to that effect.

Sephora says:

What it is:
A range of compact eyeshadow palettes, expertly curated by Huda herself, offering beauty lovers a complete day-to-night eye color wardrobe.

What it does:
Each Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is packed with a selection of nine highly pigmented mattes and striking shimmers, all with a smooth and blendable texture. Available in four color themes—Warm Brown, Mauve, Smokey, and Electric Obsessions—the palettes are super compact and lightweight, making them a must-have for your handbag. The large mirror, conveniently-sized palette, and versatile shade collection allow you to create both classic and playful looks that are easy to apply on-the-go.

– Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions—Instantly bring light and warmth to your look with Huda’s go-to palette. Packed with eight mattes and one shimmer in heated tones of browns, reds, oranges, and copper, the color range flatters any skin tone and eye color.

– Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions—Six pigmented mattes and three gorgeous shimmers in dusty rose and plummy hues create a soft, natural finish for a smoky, sultry effect.

– Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions—Master the ultimate smoky eye or staple nude look with this range of four mattes and five metallic shimmers—including an intense black, warm shades of dark brown, champagne, gold, and silver.

– Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions—The electric palette offers six bold mattes and three shimmers in bright blues, electric yellows, and neon pinks. Creating dramatic, show-stopping looks is now effortlessly achievable with just one palette.

This set contains:
– 9 x Eyeshadows

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
“These are really condensed eyeshadow palettes but you get so much product. I am obsessed with the Warm Brown and Smokey Palettes. They’re both full of the most gorgeous, buildable colors that take your look from day to night easily. The Mauve Obsessions Palette is the makeup essential that everyone needs to create everyday looks with a sultry edge. The Electric palette features super bold colors that are still really wearable so you can create amazing, understated looks. I really wanted to give people the option to have fun with as many colors as possible without having to invest in individual shades. It was all about giving color junkies everything they need, in a compact way.”—Huda Kattan, Brand Founder

The Yays

  • These Huda Beauty Obsessions Palettes eye shadows are so, SO BUTTERY AND SOFT OMG. I am obsessed with how lovely they are to the touch.
  • They are very, very pigmented. I loved Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Palette (I’m bummed I never ended up reviewing that; I think I will, soon.) and I think these shadows are equal to those as far as pigmentation goes, if not better.
  • There is very little fallout despite the buttery powderiness.
  • The shimmer shades have this metallic, creamy quality to them which makes them a breeze to apply, especially with fingers.
  • The mirror included is actually a decent size and I’m able to see everything from my brows down to my lips in it. (I hope that made sense.) What I’m trying to say is, if you are traveling, I think you will likely be able to work well with that mirror.
  • These are really cute little palettes, all capable of creating a bunch of neutral and dramatic looks.
  • These Obsessions Palettes are perfect for travel because of their compact size and superb quality.
  • These Huda Beauty eyeshadows are a dream to blend out and work with. Just look at my eye makeup looks, above.
  • The packaging is sturdy and pretty.

The Meh

  • While the eyeshadows in the Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes are blendable, they need to be built up when applied with a brush. I suppose, in a way, this layering is an advantage as it means more control over one’s technique.

Do I recommend the Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes?

I got the Warm Brown Obsessions Palettes and Smokey Obsessions Palettes to try out, and I am very impressed with both. I will definitely be picking up the Electric Obsessions and Mauve Obsessions Palettes, and I highly recommend that everyone else give these eyeshadows a go, as well.
