Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches: Hey guys, Huda Beauty is probably an inspiration to everyone who has dreams. I have followed her through since the beginning and I feel so happy for her. When she started a makeup line, I wanted to get those lashes but as a college student I was broke pretty much always. However, now Huda Beauty is slightly more readily available. I am proud to present to you my first eyeshadow palette from Huda Beauty. In fact, she has launched 4 palettes in the “Obsessions Palette” range. I got my hands on 3 of them. Let’s go through a detailed review of this palette below.
If you follow me on instagram (@asthambf), you have already seen the mini video of the swatches. I have been trying out this palette for almost 15 days now. I basically have been testing the shades individually as well as together. With and without primer. And today, I am here to share all my honest opinion on the mauve obsessions palette by Huda Beauty.

In Detail Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches and My Experience
The Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions palette comes in a sturdy square cardboard packaging. Also the palette itself is housed inside a plastic slip on cover. So if you have it on, there are no chances of your palette opening inside your bag. It has good quality magnetic closure which keeps the palette safe. There is a full size mirror which is wonderful. The back of the palette has the complete ingredients list. Overall, I really like the packaging. Its compact, lightweight as well as sturdy.
The Obsessions palette has 9 stunning shades of eyeshadows. Each shadow is 1.3 g (0.05oz) which is exactly equal to the amount of individual shadows that you get in a MAC Times Nine eyeshadow palette. Huda’s Palette of 9 shadows is less expensive than MAC’s 9 shadows palettes.
Huda Mauve Obsessions Palette has the most gorgeous layout of mauves, reds, burgundy, rose, taupe, transition and rose tone foils. I definitely appreciate the thought Huda put into this palette. Out of the 9 shadows, there are 6 pure matte shadows and the remaining 3 are frost or foil shades. Let us discuss about each of the shadows individually below.
Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette Individual Shades Description
The shades in the palette are not given a name. So we are going to arbitrarily number them so that its easy for us to refer to individual shades when I describe them.
Shade Mauve #1 – The is a deep burgundy with strong warm red undertones. Very pigmented, it has a soft texture. It may seem slightly powdery if you do not use a primer. But definitely a great quality matte shadow. It’s build-able which is always a welcome quality in such deep shadows because we can adjust the intensity of the shade on our lids. The shadow blends easily with a blending brush.
Shade Mauve #2 – This is a warm pink with a frosty finish and some orange undertones. Again, I love the texture as well as the pigmentation. It does not apply completely opaque in a single swipe but you can easily build it up. This shade is pretty unique I feel because it can work with so many looks.
Shade Mauve #3 – An almost metallic-frosty, light peachy pink shade. This shade is gorgeous. This has a stunning bright effect. But, not overly shiny or on your face. It has amazing texture and applies beautifully. You can build it up and concentrate it or you can blend it for a soft glowy lids. Both the ways it looks amazing.
Shade Mauve #4 – This is a frosty reddish pink with warm undertones. Super soft texture and amazing pigmentation. This shade is a stunner even when worn by itself on the lids. Its easy to blend as well as work with.
Shade Mauve #5 – Its a beautiful taupe shade with mauve undertones. It has slightly warm undertones. I feel this shade is placed perfectly in the centre of the palette. I use it as transition shade and it works amazingly. Very pigmented with soft, satiny texture. This matte eyeshadow deserves all the praise it can get.
Shade Mauve #6 – A medium brick shade with warm red undertones. Again this has amazing texture as well as lovely pigmentation. This shade looks beautiful on every skin tone. If you’re into red-burgundy eye makeup looks, this is a must have shade. It is easily build-able and very blend-able.
Shade Mauve #7 – This is a deep plum with hints of brown in it. A very unique shade I feel. Like the shade Mauve #1, this is again slightly powdery without a primer. Nevertheless, has good pigmentation and is easily build-able. This is the only shade which has a tendency to turn patchy if applied without a primer and not blended well.
Shade Mauve #8 – A light creamy beige with slightly warm undertones. Amazing pigmentation with superb application. This is one of the best matte shadows in the palette. It can be a perfect highlight shade or a base shade.
Shade Mauve #9 – The last shade in the palette is a stunning warm red. This is the shade if you are planning on doing a red eye makeup look. Deeply pigmented as well as lovely texture. This may seem slightly powdery without a primer as well. But it blends really nicely. I absolutely love how the shade stays true to its colour even if I blend it a little extra.
Wearability, Staying Power
Every single shadow in the palette has excellent wearability. If you use them without a primer, some shades may need extra blending otherwise they might seem slightly patchy initially. With a primer, you will be the happiest person working with these shadows. Please note that the frosty or shimmery shades in the palette work much better when used with your fingers instead of a brush. All the shades stay true to the colour on the lids which is amazing. In fact, the shadows stay put forever. I mean, the longest I wore them was 9 hours and none of the shades turned patchy or anything.
The Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions is a complete palette in its own. It has everything you will need to create a stunning eye makeup look. Because the palette is so light weight and compact, this is going to be my go to palette for travelling. Larger palettes by Huda Beauty like the Huda Rose Gold Palette and the Desert Dusk palette are quite expensive. However with these obsessions palette I feel everyone can enjoy Huda’s eyeshadows without spending a ton of money. I totally recommend this palette to everyone. It will work well for all skin tones. In fact, these obsessions palette can be perfect for gifting during this holiday season.

CONs of Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
