Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette | $65
“Our second palette is filled with vibrant, highly-pigmented shades that reflect the exotic landscape of the Arabian desert around us. We’ve introduced three new formulas to reflect all its dazzling mystery and charm, in particular the iridescent duo-chrome formulas just completely capture the mysterious desert mirages. I spent so much time to ensure that every shade was absolutely perfect, and every color is so special to me. It was also really important to me that we take all our knowledge and feedback from our first palette, and create something that would showcase our growing experience and knowledge.” – Huda Kattan
“A dynamic eyeshadow palette with 18 shades in 4 unique textures: 1 dazzling glitter, 8 creamy mattes, 6 shimmering pearl shades and 3 duo-chrome toppers.”

“Layer different textures to create unique combinations or add intrigue to smooth matte shades with a duo-chrome topper. From subtle, natural looks to dramatic statements and bold glittering looks, this palette will become your new essential for all your makeup routines.”
“This palette contains: Eight Matte Shades: Highly-pigmented shades in vibrant purples and ochres, and soft sandy nude-tones provide butter-like application and extended wear. (Blazing, Saffron, Amethyst, Oud, Amber, Eden, Musk, Desert Sand)”
“Six Pressed Pearls: Purely pressed pearls in plum, bronze and rose hues create a high shimmer, velvety finish that layer effortlessly on top of mattes to add depth and shine to lids. (Turkish Delight, Angelic, Cashmere, Royal, Nefertiti, Blood Moon)”
“Three Duo-Chrome Toppers: An exquisite light-shifting formula in three enchanting shades with a duo-chrome effect. Use these transformative shades alone for an incandescent glow, or layer as the finishing touch. (Retrograde, Twilight, Celestial). One Pure3 pure glitter texture for a bold look. (Cosmo)”
“How to use Duo Chrome Toppers: Use a brush to blend the light into the base shadow, or dab onto your lid with your finger to maximise the shine. How to use Glitter: Apply the pure glitter all over the eye using a flat brush with stiff bristles, or use it as a glitter liner with a liner brush.”
I bought this palette the second it was released. And although I’m kicking myself for not waiting for the Sephora VIB Rouge sale, I definitely don’t regret my purchase. This palette is a dream and I’m so glad I added it to my collection because it doesn’t disappoint.
The shades in this palette are all equally pigmented, creamy, smooth with minimal fallout and just a tiny bit of kickback. The duo chrome formula is so amazing and the pigmentation comes all the way through, even when I decide to use a brush as opposed to my fingertips. These shades are all so easy to work with and there are so many looks you can create. This is easily one of my top 5 favorite palettes.
My go to shades in this palette are the entire first row, Celestial, Nefertiti, Angelic, Saffron and Blazing. Clearly I wouldn’t pick one because honestly, they are all just that amazing. I haven’t had the palette long enough but I already know this will be something I will be repurchasing. I fell in love with Huda Beauty when I purchased the Liquid Lipstick Vault and after buying this palette I’m definitely going to be purchasing more.
