Welcome back to another eyeshadow palette review post! Today’s post is going to focus on the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions palette. If you want to learn more about this mini palette, and whether or not I will be keeping it in my collection, then keep on reading.
About The Palette –
This palette is a mini eyeshadow palette which contains 6 bold matte shades and 3 shimmers. As you can tell, this palette is not for the faint-hearted! It is super bright and contains everything from electric yellows to bright blues. It was released quite some time ago and sadly, it is no longer available for purchase (that I can find anyway).
The Packaging –
The palette itself is so simple and chic. The cardboard exterior is all black with images of broken shades on the front cover. As always, it is a bonus for me if a palette contains a mirror, and this one does! It is a smaller mirror so probably not the best to do your entire makeup routine in, but I love pulling this palette out when it is time to put lashes on. The packaging is also very slim and small, so it is great for traveling with, and it is easy to store within your collection.
The Shades –
Electric #1 is a matte bright magenta shade.
Electric #2 is a metallic purple shade.
Electric #3 is a matte peach shade.
Electric #4 is a metallic dark cobalt shade.
Electric #5 is a matte yellow shade.
Electric #6 is a matte rich fuchsia pink shade.
Electric #7 is a matte dark teal shade.
Electric #8 is a metallic light sky blue shade.
Electric #9 is a matte dark red shade.
My Final Thoughts –
Considering this palette cost me $48 USD when I picked it up, I expected big things. I loved it when I first purchased it and was able to create some really beautiful looks with it. Nowadays, it sadly is one of those palettes that sits in my drawer and gets neglected. I am glad that I included it in my little ‘random eyeshadow palette’ tests, and I am glad that I got to use it early on in the testing phases (am I doing an experiment or something? Sounding so scientific and professional).
All the shades are super bright and pigmented, with not one shade letting the team down. The mattes are obviously a little drier than the shimmery shades, but isn’t that to be expected anyway? All the shades blend out super easily on the skin and they do really pop when placed on a nice, light base. One minor negative is that some of the shades do stain the eye ever so slightly. Even though this palette is considered a ‘mini’, the pan sizes are still a decent size, and I don’t see myself being able to go through all the products before it sadly expires.
So the real question is, is the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions palette staying in my collection? Yeah guys, yeah it is. Although I don’t always reach for it, it is something that I would miss from my collection if it wasn’t there. I definitely plan on keeping it until it can no longer perform its proper duties.
Do you have this palette in your collection? Do you wish you could still get your hands on it now? What is your favourite Huda Beauty product? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂
That’s all for now Beauties!
