Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Palette

I had never been much of an eyeshadow person back in the day, but somehow I have been gravitating towards them more and more. My eyeshadow collection is fairly good at the moment (small for a beauty blogger, but substantial for a person). Of course there are many more shadows on my wishlist (which keeps growing to my dismay) but at the moment I am quite happy with those in my stash.

A recent addition was the Huda Beauty Smokey Obessions palette (which recently got available on Nykaa! About time!). The Desert Dusk palette was available since quite a while. Though I was extremely tempted to get, I didn't give in coz -  (a) the price! (b) I don't think I would need so many shades (c) size of the palette

So, when the obessions palette were finally made available, I had to pick one! My inclination initially was towards the warm one, but I already had the NYX Warm Neutrals (more about that one soon! promise!), so I went with the Smokey one - and I am so glad! 
What I like about the Obsessions Palette the most? Size!

Just look at how compact the palette is. You get 9 colors which fit in your palm! Makes it so easy to carry around or take it on a trip. It hardly occupies any space. And you get a mirror inside. Don't think that the pans are super small. Many have done a size comparison, and it is almost the same size as those in the big palette. 
My only tip would be that if you are taking this away on holiday with you, make sure it is protected well. You do not want any of these gorgeous colors smashing...and they have a knack of doing so.

These shadows are soft, smooth and oh so buttery. I finally understand now why everyone is raving about the Huda shadows. They are one of the best I have come across. The Smokey Obsessions has 5 shimmer and 4 matte shades - each as beautiful as the other. 
It can easily take you day to night. Everyday look, occasions, party...this palette covers them all. 

The shades might not be super unique - I have already found 4 very similar looking shadow colors in other palettes in my stash....But, the quality of those is no where close compared to this one.

Smokey 1 - Intense Dark Black, Matte. I have heard people say that it isn't the most pigmented black out there, but it certainly is the most pigmented one I have. Takes about 2 layers to get the full color.

Smokey 2 - A Light Brown. Matte. Good to use all over the lid to even them out, or in the crease to blend out other colors. 

Smokey 3 - Rosy brown. Metallic

Smokey 4 - Silver. Glitter finish. It is chunky compared to other shades in the palette Honestly, this was one of the shades that attracted me to pick this palette. It is so pretty! I havn't used it yet, but I cannot wait to play around with it!

Smokey 5 - Dark Brown. Pearl finish. It isn't to metallic and can be used everyday too with a light hand. 

Smokey 6 - Coppery Gold. Metallic. I don't need to say much about it...just look at how gorgeous the shade is!

Smokey 7 - Dark Chocolate Brown. Matte. I love to use it to smudge kajal on the lower lashline as well. 

Smokey 8 - Medium Brown. Matte. Works really well to deepen the crease. 

Smokey 9 - Peachy Champagne. Metallic. The one shade I do not see using much personally. It is pretty for sure, but I need to figure out how to use it more often as I don't really use such colors on my eyes often.

Pretty colors aren't they? What do you think?
These shadows are so smooth and buttery, that I love just using my fingers to apply most of the shades. I use a brush to just blend them out on the lids. So easy! Also, there is almost no fall out when applied with fingers. 

You can go Warm, Neutal or Cool with the Smokey Obessions. Pair that gorgeous gold with the dark brown and light camel brown to get a warm eye look. Pick up the silver and medium brown for a cool toned effect. Play with just the matte browns to get an eeryday neutral look. Use the dark black to deepen any color and turn it into a smokey night look

The obessions palettes are available in various tones - Warm, Mauve, Smokey, Electric, Gem stones... there will definitely be one you will be drawn to! There is something for everyone.

Price : 2500 INR 

This isn't a budget palette for sure. If you are a makeup beginner & just starting out with eyeshadows, I wouldn't say you need to pick these up. There are many more affordable palettes out there for you to experiment with. 
However, if you want to add some high quality shadows to your stash and want to give Huda Beauty shadows a try, these obessions palettes are great! You can pick a color family you like and get some great looks with these, instead of picking up the even more pricey Desert Rose or Rose Gold palettes. 

Have you tried Huda Beauty shadows? Which is your favourite one?
