Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Palette.
The other day when I was creating the Spring Rose Look #MakeupMonday I realised I didn’t have any red (actual reds) eyeshadows. That’s actually a shame because I love red eyeshadows, I love it with my green eyes.
In my researches I noticed there aren’t many only red eyeshadows palettes, this was the only one that I liked the shade range of so despite not being the biggest fan of Huda’s shadows, I decided to give it a go.
I didn’t have high hopes at all but my friend LP who blogs at The Newbury Girl (which I’m actually loving at the moment, so go and check her out) has recently told me that the formula of the big palettes is different from the small ones.
You can get it from sephora.com for 27$
This palette comes in a plastic sleeve but doesn’t have a box, it wasn’t exactly cheap so I’m kind of upset by it.
Other than that though, I love the palette itself, I’m glad it has a gem on top rather than Huda’s eyes.
It contains 4 shimmers, 4 mattes and a satin but the individual shades don’t have a name.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
All the shades have a medium to high pigmentation, they are really creamy and easy to blend apart from the second to last shade which was a bit patchy. They have some fall down so I recommend doing your eyes first and then the base.
Mattes: are insanely buttery and easy to blend, which is so surprising, red eyeshadow is not usually not that easy to make.
Shimmers: are so nice and pigmented, which I was not expecting since the Mercury ones are terrible.
All the shades blend easily with brushes but the shimmery ones work best if you use your fingers and you press them on otherwise you have to spend forever layering them.
It doesn’t bother me but I know some people don’t like to use fingers and this is pretty limitating.
I’ve used shade #9 and #4 in the crease, shade #6 in the outer corner, shade #2 in the inner corner and shade #5 on the centre. Lastly shade #1 on the brow bone.
I’ve used shade #8 in the crease, shade #7 in the outer corner and shade #3 on the lid.
With a primer, they last about 8 hours before creasing.

This palette is beautiful. I love the colour story and it really inspires me. The formula of the mattes is incredible, the shimmers require a bit of layering but they are beautiful. Overall I’m very impressed, I didn’t have high expectations but this palette is good and one that was missing in my collection.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
