Huda Beauty Rich Nude Obsessions Palette | Review & Swatches

Hey everyone, how are you all doing? It’s been a whole week since I wrote a blog post, so it feels good to sit down with a nice cup of tea & write away. Today I am going to review the Huda Beauty Rich Nude Obsessions palette. I received this one at a work beauty conference back at the beginning of the year, so I was very lucky! I thought I’d share my thoughts on this one, so we can see if it’s worth the money.

This mini palette is from the nude obsessions range – I have the ‘rich’ palette, but there is also a ‘light’ and a ‘medium’ version. Each one contains 9 different shades. In the one I have there are 4 shimmer shades and 5 matte shades.

The mini Huda palettes are £27 each. This is pretty pricey for 9 shadows, but Huda Beauty is definitely considered a high end brand, so it is a price mark I would expect.

The packaging is stunning – it is a solid sturdy plastic with a rubber material on the top side of the palette. It is small AND contains a mirror, which makes it great to travel with

Despite having this Huda Beauty palette since March, I haven’t reached for it too much until lately, but now I have delved into it, I have been loving playing with it. Since there are only 9 shades in the mini palette, you are quite limited in the looks you can create. This isn’t for someone who wants to experiment with lots of different looks. However, the shades are absolutely stunning, and if like me you are into these colours, you’ll more than likely be obsessed with the few looks you can create with the palette! These types of shades are perfect for every day.

As you would expect from Huda Beauty the quality of the shadows are incredible. The mattes are truly buttery and blend so seamlessly. They don’t skip or go patchy at all, so they’re super easy to work with. The shimmer shades are also super pigmented. I like to apply shimmer shades with my finger as I find they look better this way. The palette doesn’t have too much fall out, but there is a small amount.

Saying whether this is worth the £27 price tag is difficult. If you’re into these shades and see yourself reaching for them a lot then I would say it is worth it, since the quality is amazing! It can be a perfect day to day palette. However, if you already have lots of these shades in your collection then it probably isn’t worth it since it is nothing groundbreaking. I am personally really glad I have it in my collection, and I would definitely travel with it.



That’s all for this post! Would you be tempted to try this one out? Or is it a skip for you? Let me know!

    I was so tempted to pick one of these up when they came out but couldn’t decide which one to go for. I have one of the original obsessions palettes she did (the mauve one) and I absolutely love the formula and they really are amazing for travel purposes. I’m glad you’re enjoying this one! x
