Swatching Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ❤️
How gorgeous is the Ruby Obsessions by Huda Beauty?? 😍😍😍
This palette contains 9 pressed pigment eyeshadow shades in both mattes and shimmers. ✨
These unnamed shades pack so much punch it was like they were made for the camera! 📸
So here we go, let’s swatch the whole palette!
FIRST ROW from left to right
Ruby #1: a pale pink beige with a matte finish.
This one barely shows up on my medium-light skin tone but I guess every palette needs a transition color!
Ruby #2: a rich red ruby with sparkling metallic finish. This color is so gorgeous and saturated, and to me feels like the star of this palette!
Ruby #3: a warm, bright copper in the same metallic sparkle finish. Like a neutral… if it were going to the club.
SECOND ROW from left to right
Ruby #4: a deep red with cool undertones in a matte finish. The darkest matte in the palette.
Ruby #5: a gorgeous medium plum purple that somehow steals the show from Ruby #2.
Ruby #6: a very sexy deeper plum with a uniquely bright black tone to it. This is a multidimensional shimmer even more so than the others.
THIRD ROW from left to right
Ruby #7: a warm and cheery bright red-orange in a pearl finish, which didn’t have the easiest finger swipe but the color payoff is still major.
Ruby #8: a pale and warm orange coral matte that helps to brighten the whole look of the palette.
Ruby #9: a more pink-red matte that feels like the middle ground matte of all the shades. Such a gorgeous light red!
You didn't think we'd end it there, did you? 😲
Nope, we gotta see how all these shades blend out with a brush! 💕
I used the Eco Tools dual-ended brush; one smudgy end and one fluffy end.
Huda shades are kinda meant to be packed on, so that's what I attempted to do with the initial brush swatch.
You can see how they definitely appear less thick and opaque, naturally, because finger swatches are the most efficient way to get that high impact color payoff.
But nevertheless, they still look beautiful when brushed on!
The matte shades were generally tougher to get a smooth blend; Ruby #4 and #9 gave me the most difficulty but Ruby #7 and #8 both seemed to blend out easily - and I'm no pro!
My favorite would have to be Ruby #2 - she's just such a unique shade of pinky red! Super sparkly and bright yet opaque.
But Ruby #6 could be a close second favorite - just look at that dark sparkly color shift 🤤
TBH the Ruby Obsessions Palette shades aren't really colors and finishes I'd be using in my everyday life - I'm more makeup-minimalist and maybe kinda afraid of getting glitter in my eyes...
But swatching them was a lot of fun! I recommend this format to anyone cooped up looking for something pretty to do 🥰
Hope you learned something! #SwatchAndLearn 🎨
