Does it live up to the hype? HUDA Nude Obsessions Palette Medium

Hey everyone! I’ve got something super exciting today :) I luckily received the Huda Beauty Medium Nude palette, and let me tell you, this palette is so beautiful! 😍
🎨 This palette has a rose gold-toned vibe, with shades in both shimmer and non-shimmer (I’m a huge fan of rose gold so it was like love at first sight! 💕) Even for a nude themed palette, it has a nice variety of colors and seems perfect to create a natural or glam look without having to reach for any other palettes. You can find transition, highlight, and outer v shades all in this pocket-sized palette!
I swatched every color on my wrist by going from left to right beginning at the top of the palette, first with my finger (as shown on the left side of my wrist) and then with an eyeshadow brush (as shown on the right). The colors are very vibrant and saturated when applying with a finger, but needs a couple of layers to achieve the same effect with a brush. 🖌
Although this palette is likely going to become one of my go-to’s, it is certainly not perfect.
The smell lowkey smells like a sharpie but worse, actually a more burning-plastic smell. 😬 I had it about a foot away from me, and
I could still smell it. 😕  If you’re sensitive to strong smells, I’d say keep that in mind! 
I was feeling a little dramatic today, so I created a glam-ish look!
- I put the transition shade in my crease and a little above it to make my eyes seem a bit deeper set and larger.
- I placed the eyelid shade over most of my eyelid, and placed the outer v in well… the outer v haha.
- I then finished off with a clean eyebrow and eyeliner with some dramatic lashes.
My favorite shade is the rose gold shimmer in the middle! (I love rose gold a lot if you couldn’t tell by now haha). I love the way the light reflects off this shade, depending on the way the light hits it, you can see flecks of gold and/or coppery rose.
I hope that you liked this review! Let me know which color would be your favorite in this palette :)

    This is a great nudes eye shadow palette! Oh....I like your professional swatch picture with the tattoos (goes well together!). :)

    I really love all the colors it is really pretty😍

  • Desirae

    I absolutely love the colors in this palette, pinks and browns and golds amazing especially for my blue eyes! I wish I could apply eye makeup with Such careful meticulous application I never get such a clean blended look! And don’t get me started on the cateye that’s even worse (for me to attempt)! Rose gold whenever I get one in a palette is usually my favorite shimmering color. Because it’s pink and gold! Beautiful application and great thorough review!

  • Sara

    Love that center shade or the far right bottom corner shimmer shade as well. Those would probably be on my faves list if I had this pallet. Hey you say you love all these rose gold colors that are so of the moment right now and not going anywhere and well girl I’m late to getting on that band wagon but I’m looking for that right place to start with a flattering rose gold eyeshadow pallet to dip my toe in the water and I’m curious now having tried this pallete and those before it. Do you have a fave you’d recommend followed by runner up(s) for a light skinned bright blue eyed devil such as myself??! Thanks for the help! Can’t wait to hear your faves

  • Norma House

  • Christine Czaiczynski

    I love the colors in the palette they are really nice and the kind of colors I usually look for when shopping for make-up.

  • Kristy

    It such a beautiful palate! I love the colors even the case is pretty. I want to try this so bad😍💕

  • Jenna

    I love buds beauty products. I haven’t tried this one but they do have really pretty palettes that I’m dying to try. I’m not much of nude color wearer but I’m willing to give it a try.

    At first I was going to go for lorac just because I've used that brand and love the quality, buuuttt even though the other pallet had a more neutral warm vibe, which is for sure my all day everyday go to. But I'm not a shimmer gal, if they had more mattes then that would have been my fav, so I go with this beauty. Even tho lorac pallet I have will forever be my numero uno. This one is calling my name. I love my mattes if a pallet has nothing but shimmers in them. I CANT!

  • Mariah

    I have yet to be able to try any of her products which is so sad cause they all look so amazing. Rose gold is kind of my ish to, so I'm totally vining on this right now. I'm hoping since my bday is coming soon I get lucky! But this pallet is absolutely gorgeous!

  • Nancy

    I have two Huda palettes, the emerald and the mauve obsessions, so this one didn't call to me. I thought the color story was bland compared to what I gravitate towards. Wow, thank you for proving me wrong. This was so pretty and can be soft and glam too.

  • Gina Hernandez

    I have so many palettes with these colors as it is fun for fall. I love the colors and would try.

  • Mariangel Carmona

    It's a beautiful palette, it's a beautiful look you made but I'll pass this one..I don't personally like the person behind the brand even though she said she would step aside from it..

  • Danielle Bordine

    This is the one I would choose for the rest of my life! These colors are beautiful!! Thank you for the great pics!! The pic explains everything well!!

  • Mellyventures

    Oooo I like the look you did! So lucky! I like the one in the middle too, but I think the pink shimmer on the bottom left might be my fav, but I'd have to try in person!

  • Chrissy

    It looks so pretty but maybe the smell is a good reason I don't need this palette.

  • Stacie Beall

    Beautiful palette colors.

  • Nicole Robinson

    Such a pretty palette

  • Kathy Legendre

    Beautiful pallet! I'd love to try it!

  • Rukhsana

    i like the natasha denona palette as it has more shadows, its the perfect colr shades for fall, halloween, dawn, nightlife. as it has its silvery dark shimmers and glitter shades. if i can use one palatte for the rest of my life that would be the sigma creme de couture palette as its has its brown and a few bright color pastel shades. as these are colors that i prefare for travelling anyway.

  • Pauline

    I like this palette Huda Nude Obsessions that live up to their lasting color and sparkle for eye shadow. Thanks for asking, I prefer this new look with the dark and light rose gold too. Want to try this palette too.

  • Rita Whirls
