Hi, my name is Oshin, and I’m obsessed with the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions mini eyeshadow palette! I’d been looking for a bold yellow eyeshadow and it was down to a MAC single, the Zulu Palette by Juvias Place and this one . . . Obviously this palette won. The colours were calling out to me in a way that was very nostalgic. Remember those 12 shade water colour square paint palettes that we used to play with as kids that had those nice maroon and purple and green and yellow paints? This Huda Beauty palette takes me back to those.
Electric Obsessions is such a fitting name because the colours in this palette are so shockingly electric and stunning, You can’t help but play with them over and over again. I have. And I’m so glad about how it looks on dark skin! I was worried some of the colours wouldn’t show up because finding swatches of this palette on deeper complexions has been so hard, and I had nothing to refer to. But after getting, swatching and wearing it myself, I’m pleased. They look gorgeous!
The palette has 9 shades that include 3 foiled/shimmer shadows and 6 mattes. All the shades are highly pigmented, but the downside is they do stain, so probably have a lot of dyes. The red/pinks especially. You need to be mindful of that when swatching or taking makeup off. The matte shadows are very powdery and have some fallout, but I don’t mind, especially as the colour payoff is so good. The shades like orange and yellow work best when layered and over a primer or concealer. The shimmers work best using fingers to really get that foiled effect.
Blending the mattes on top of each other can be tricky depending on what colour you use but it’s nothing that can’t be worked around with some patience and practice. I wish there was one more shimmer shade though – preferably the deeper pink, because it’s rare to find such a rich pink shimmer shadow. I also would have liked to have the purple shimmer shadow showing up as marvelously as the blue and turquoise ones. The star shades for me are the turquoise shimmer, and the deep teal and red mattes.
I haven’t been able to put this palette down and I love how different it is. Especially seeing as how every other palette out there looks the same lately: warm/cool neutrals. This is a statement palette! And one that I feel would add zhuzh to anyone’s collection. It makes for a lovely companion palette like the Gemstones Obsessions palette or even the Fenty Beauty Galaxy palette, but is also wearable by itself. I love how I can get both soft to in-your-face looks from this one small palette.
It goes for 27 Dollars at Sephora. I had it sent to me from Dubai. It’s worth the money and I’m loving the intro into Huda Beauty. Now I can’t wait to try her Demi Matte liquid lipsticks.
