Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Review + YT Video

Hello everyone! Todays review is on the new Huda beauty mini 'obsession' eyeshadow palettes...well specifically the one in warm brown. She has four palettes, all with a distinctively different theme and they cost £25 for 10g of product.

This is my first ever experience using her shadows and in general I've not tried a lot of the products from her brand. I own the mini liquid lipstick set and I was very pleasantly surprised by the formula and the shades. However, to me her brand is more on the luxury side of things, which means I'm not going to pick up an item here or there on a whim, I want to be really sure that my money is being well spent. Her previous two palettes have had mixed reviews, but the main reason why I didn't purchase them was because of the price and the guilt! When one owns as many single shadows as I do, you might be able to understand...😅

The £25 pricetag felt a lot more affordable, and when you do the maths each shadow is costs you £2.77, which really isn't too bad. One MUG single shadow is £4.95 and one ABH shadow in any of her latest palettes cost around £3. So technically you're getting good value for money, when compared to similar quality shadows.

And the swatches of the palette are below -

As you can see, this is a very warm toned palette. Perhaps only the slightly cool toned shade is the middle darker brown, however even that has clear warm undertones! I like that she has given us a few different transition/crease shades and I can definitely achieve more of a deeper look from the two darker shadows too. The 'red' shade as you can tell by the one on the far right, is a lot brighter than one would expect, so that is a little disappointing. My favourite shadow is the central gold one, which has her 'textured' formula - it is so buttery and creamy! I'm sure, when worn with a base, it'll look absolutely gorgeous. I'm also particularly happy with the cream shade, because I actually don't have enough in my collection, despite it being a shade I reach for a lot as a base and for under the brow bone - the pigmentation is applaudable!

Packaging, is okay, nothing special - but the mirror inside is very much appreciated and the magnetic closing seems very secure, so overall it gets a thumbs up from me.

I think this whole mini colour theme is really smart, because in reality her options for colour combinations are endless! I can imagine a greens, blues, yellows version of this and since the price point is semi-affordable, I know it'll be a success - Huda is one smart lady.

Overall rating: 8/10

Pros: Pretty affordable and decent value for money, pigmented, buttery, creamy, pigmented, blendable, colours I'm actually going to use often! Mirror, sturdy cardboard packaging, cutest most portable size ever.

Cons: I think it would have been nice to have two textured shadows, since 1/9 isn't super versatile....but that's about it!

Repurchase: Yes, since I don't have many of these shades which surprised me, plus I know I'll get a lot of use out of it ^_^

Have you tried out any of her shadows? Larger palettes or smaller? What are your thoughts?
