Review: Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette


Hi loves! Today's post is on Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette and down below you can find video 4 looks 1 palette. Thats kind of why it took me so long to post this review. I was working on this video and I still forgot to film intro :|


The palette comes in a cardboard packaging and closes magnetically. Inside there is a big mirror and 18 eye shadows. There is 4 different finishes: 8 mattes, 6 pressed pearls, 3 duo-chrome toppers and 1 pressed glitter.

This palette was pain in the ass for me to use. I was so uninspired by it, even though these are the shades I usually go for. I love to look at it, but it doesn't make me wanna use it. 

The mattes are described as buttery and they are not. These swatch horribly, but I can make it work and build up the color, but for the price point, which is around 60 euros, I shouldn't have to work on it. It should be effortless. The more metallic or how they call them pressed pearls are beautiful and pigmented. I also love the duo-chrome toppers. I have no idea why there is this glitter in the palette, because it goes in my matte shadows and when used with glitter glue it gets into my crease anyway. We can say I'm not a fan of the glitter. There is no place for it in a palette, when there is matte shadows in it too.

Overall these blended beautifully and lasted all day. I didn't experience any creasing and the shadows didn't fade through out the day. These also didn't irritate my sensitive eyes.

On the left you can see the swatches of the first row and I did go over the matte shades more then once.

  • Desert Sand - is vanilla shade, but for my pale skin tone its too dark, so I haven't really used. It has a matte finish.
  • Musk - is also matte and its cool tone light brown, perfect crease color.
  • Eden - is matte peach shade.
  • Amber - is matte copper shade
  • Blood Moon - is one of the shades with pressed pearl finish. Its beautiful copper.
  • Oud - is matte dark warm tone brown
  • Celestial - is from the pressed pearl family. It looks like rose gold in the pan and has a more pinky sheen to it.
  • Nefertiti - is also pressed pearl and is beautiful gold.
  • Twilight - is duo-chrome topper. It looks purple in the pan and has light blue reflect to it, its super pretty.
  • Amethyst - is matte purple.
  • Royal - is pressed pearl and is beautiful rich purple.
  • Restrograde - it duo-chrome topper. It looks reddish purple with mint green reflect to it.
  • Cashmere - is with pearl finish. Its classic champagne shade.
  • Angelic - is also with pearl finish. Its peachy gold shade.
  • Cosmo - is the glitter and you can see how horribly it swatches.
  • Turkish Delight - is with pearl finish and is beautiful rich dark red.
  • Saffron - is a matte and you can see how poorly the mattes swatch, if you don't go over more then one time. Its a dark red shade.
  • Blazing - is a matte orange.


If I'm completely honest with you guys I dislike it more, then like this palette. I'm thinking of passing it on, but then I don't want to, because its so pretty to look at. I have so many other more affordable palettes that work wonderfully and mattes actually are buttery. 


Down below you can see the video: 4 looks 1 palette, which I saw done by Lauren Mae Beauty (link). I love her videos and she makes me see makeup differently.

  2. This palette is gorgeous, and I'm sorry it wasn't what you expected. I've only tried the Mauve Obsession palette from Huda.

    love Amber and Turkish Delight.
    Too bad you didn't like them that much.
