Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette Review & Swatches
I ordered one of the Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette in Neon Orange last week and it arrived rather quickly which allowed me to have some fun with it over the weekend.
⭐I got the Neon Orange shade selection because I love bright pops of orange and coral but if you’re sort of yearning both the Neon Pink and Neon Orange Palette and can only afford one I’d highly suggest going with Neon Orange as there are a few shades in here that will get you a neon pinkish look should you like.
⭐One thing to take note of with these palettes is the fact they are named Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette and NOT Huda Beauty Neon Obsession Eye Palette or Eyeshadow Palette. That’s because they contain pressed pigments that are not safe for eye use within the USA by the FDA. This was the case with the recent Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Eyeshadow Palette as well. Outside the USA within Canada and Europe there are no such regulations. However, I do think the marketing could be presented better on Sephora’s site which labeled these as eyeshadows which might imply to users that they are perfectly safe to use on the eye area when in fact they could cause irritation. Huda’s own marketing on her website also shows them on the lid and eye area.
🤑The palette has nine eyeshadows which are 0.05 oz each and it’s priced at $29 which makes it a little higher than the original Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes which are the same size and priced at $27. The palette’s packaging isn’t cardboard which could account for the two dollar price increase as this compact is plastic.
🎁I like the packaging better than the original Obsessions line! Not so much the bright neon orange but just the fact it’s plastic and feels like it’ll protect the eyeshadows a little better. There’s a nicely sized mirror inside the compact as well!
⭐The palette features nine eyeshadows three of which are flakier pressed pigments and the other six are matte. I have to admit I wish the shimmer versus the matte finish was even. I’d have liked a few more shimmers to play with. Just wearing matte neon on my eye is a little more difficult and I think the shimmer really adds a nice POP to the completed look! More shimmer would have been lovely.
⚠️The mattes are very pigmented but required layering as they are dusky, a bit chalky, and they tend to blend away. I found myself packing color on to get the best color pay off. They don’t have a powdery kick up and they are a lot less dense and drier than some Obsessions Palettes I own however, once applied and as I started blending it felt like the formula did have a good deal of fall out and felt a bit dusky.
✅The flakier pigments are best applied with a finger and patted on top of the mattes as they look best using this method as on their own they tend to have a little less intensity. Picking them up with a brush is challenging which made me feel like finger application was best. They really bring out the intensity of the neon mattes and create a great neon look that looks like it could glow in the dark. Although, the formula isn’t perfect, it’s still very fun to create looks with these shades! I had a blast with it.
👎So, Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette aren’t exactly formulated perfectly and the not safe for eye use warning is a real buzzkill! But there’s fun to be had here if you’re throwing precaution to the wind!
❤️How do you feel about the Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette? Did you order one or does the eye warning make you second guess purchasing one?
