For my first dive into the Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette, I ended up with this greyish purple cool toned look. I focused mostly on the first two columns on the left side of the palette and added in the pale matte pink. I wore this look for 11 hours. One eye was primed and the other was not. The primed eye lasted the whole day with little creasing but the unprimed eye started creasing about 4 hours in.

I started out with the two matte greys (Precious and Mantra) and was pleasantly surprised with their quality. Most greys I use don’t work as well as warmer shades and can be more patchy. The color applied evenly and blended out easily. These have purple tones that became more obvious as I used them. I applied Cherished to the inner part of the crease/transition area, layering it slightly over the grey. This shade is very light but I think it shows up pretty well. On the lid, I used Serenity and Aura, and topped them with Energized. When swatching, Energized looks and feels more metallic than the other shimmers. I applied it with my finger to get more shine out of it and then softened the edges with a brush. Using a brush alone with this shade gave more of a soft sparkly effect. It had a small amount of sparkle fallout. Quartz was less punchy than the other shimmers so I built it up to get what you see here.

So far I’m impressed. The mattes were plenty pigmented but easy to blend, the shimmers were buildable, adhered easily, and didn’t have very much fallout. Wear time is not really typical for me. Usually I wont have such a big difference in wear time with and without primer. I normally will see creasing around 4 hours in with most eyeshadows over bare lids. Primers will usually get me closer to 8 hours.

  1. Would you recommend Huda Beauty eyeshadows? I’ve heard so many mixed reviews and I had once swatched a palette a couple years ago and wasn’t super impressed. Your makeup is beautiful!

    • They are pricier than some other brands and I think you can get comparable quality of the eyeshadows themselves for less. If packaging and presentation matters to you, it might be worth that extra cost. Of all the ones I have, I like the overall quality of this one the best. The mattes are really nice and it feels like they found their footing with the shimmer formulas.
