First Impression Friday – @hudabeauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette in Emerald

July 17, 2020

One of the things I was most excited to receive in my @hudabeauty Mystery Bundle was the Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette in Emerald ($27 for .45 ounces –! I own a few other of the Obsessions Palettes and love every one of those!

What it claims:

🔘 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

🔘 Emerald has six duo-chrome and three matte shades in glamorous olive, pine, and gold tones

My experience:

👍🏻 This palette is stunning visually. I don’t own many green eyeshadows, so I had been considering a purchase of it for a while before receiving it unexpectedly.

👍🏻 I have only worn this palette twice, but both times I was thrilled with the outcome. It’s out of my comfort zone to use almost exclusively green shades, but they’re all so blendable and wearable that it’s easy to make something simple and work appropriate, with the option of building it up to make it more vibrant and ready for a night out.

👍🏻👎🏻 I don’t normally wear an eyeshadow primer (although I just ordered one to see if I think it makes a huge difference) and I didn’t with the two (2) times I’ve worn this palette either. While the mattes lasted beautifully, the shimmers creased slightly. However, because of the shape of my eyes, I encounter that with almost any formula I use.

My verdict?

I am so happy I have this in my collection now! Even though I rarely wear these colors, there are times when it’s the exact look I want and I love having such a great palette to accomplish that with. Along with Emerald, I highly recommend Topaz and Amethyst (
