Happy Wednesday and welcome back. Today, I have a review and a couple looks using the Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Palette, so if you want to hear my thoughts and see this little guy in action, just keep reading below!
I picked up the original four of the Obsession palettes a while back after falling in love with the Desert Dusk palette. First off, these palettes are so cute and easy to travel with because the packaging is super minimal and small but you get a typical amount of eyeshadow. Each one of these Obsession Palettes retails for $27 and contain 9 shades. I ain’t mad at the price. I feel like it’s pretty fair. Hell, the drugstore is getting close to that these days for some of the palettes.
In the Warm Brown Obsessions Palette, you get 9 shades all in warm brown tones obviously, 8 matte and one metallic.
What is cool about this palette is that the shades aren’t just the typical reddish brown. You also have some shades that have a more purple/plum undertone. Of course, you have the standard reddish browns and an orange shade as well as a matte cream.
First up is a classic orangey red.
Next is one of the more interesting shades. It’s a warm matte cranberry that can actually pull cooler toned depending on how you use it. This is one of my favorites in the palette.
Then there is the classic muted orange, perfect for a transition.
The matte cream.
A beautiful foiled metallic copper that is stunning!
Another favorite, this is a deep brown with a purple undertone.
A more peachy matte.
Camel brown matte.
and lastly a deeper reddish brown.
All of these shades play beautifully together. You can mix them all and create variations between the shades themselves. That is why I love Huda’s shadows is how well they work together with no muddiness.
The mattes are super blendable and pigmented. A plus on formula and pigmentation. The metallic also performs beautifully. The quality is outstanding.
This is one of those palettes that is great to just grab for when you don’t want to think about a look and just want it to work. You can reach into any of the shades and pair them together perfectly. You can get a soft everyday eye or a dramatic smokey eye. If you like warm shadows, this one is a must-have. Naked Heat who?
Here are a couple looks I did using this little guy. Talking about it and looking at it makes me want to use it tomorrow.
This one is one using the orangey reds and browns.
And one focused on the cranberry tones.
All around pleased with this palette and I am so glad I picked it up. If you have the Desert Dusk or Naked Heat do you NEED this one too? Probably not, you can get similar looks but the undertones and nuances of the shades feel unique to me and I really enjoy it. You can also use it as a companion palette with any pop of shimmer or color, it’s found its way into being nearly a stable in my eyeshadow rotation just for that. It’s perfect if you have an all shimmer palette and need some warm mattes. Is it the most exciting palette? No, but I love it.
And that’s it for me today. I’ll see ya’ll for Friday for a new makeup tutorial which oddly enough is a super cool toned look using the Saints and Sinners Palette from KVD.
