Huda Beauty Gemstones Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

Gemstone

Huda Beauty Gemstone Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, nine-pan palette that features shimmery shades with some having larger sparkles and others being more metallic. I think this palette would work well coordinated with other palettes and eyeshadows one might have in their stash rather than used as a standalone palette as it is extremely shimmery and reflective. (It would be great paired with the brand’s Electric palette!) There were some really lovely shades in the palette but some less impressive ones, too. The misses were vastly improved if used with a dampened brush.

For me, I don’t mind needing to use some shades damp myself, so I really loved the overall intensity, high-shine finishes, and blendability of the palette, plus the bonus of the price point and compact size make it a good, complementary palette.

Gemstone #1

Gemstone #1 is a light pinky-lavender with subtle, warmer pink undertones and a cooler, bluish-teal sheen. It had a strong, metallic finish with slightly larger sparkles, and though the texture of the pan looked rougher, it was actually quite smooth and soft enough to be pressed nicely onto my lid for a smooth, even application. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Gemstone #2

Gemstone #2 is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a pink-to-violet sheen paired with a metallic finish. It had good color coverage, though it needed to be layered or applied with a dampened brush for full coverage. The texture was softer than it appeared in the pan, and it was creamy enough to glide well onto my lid without appearing too textured or uneven. It lasted for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.

Gemstone #3

Gemstone #3 is a dusky, medium-dark teal with warm, greenish leanings paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. Of the palette, this one was one of the more glittery shades and had less color payoff/base color, so it was hard to use it on its own. It was easier to work with using a dampened brush or a fingertip, which helped minimize fallout and improve pigmentation. On its own, the eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours but had some fallout over time.

Gemstone #4

Gemstone #4 is a light, pinky-plum with warm undertones and sparkling, metallic sheen. It had larger sparkle particles compared to most shades in the palette, but the base color was stronger than the teal in the palette, so it was more workable as a standalone shade without absolutely requiring primer or a wet brush. The texture was looser, though, so there was slight fallout during application when used dry but the slip helped it adhere better than most glitter-packed formulas. It wore well for eight hours with slight fallout over time.

Gemstone #5

Gemstone #5 is a rich, medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that applied beautifully to bare skin and blended out effortlessly. It was a stellar formula–the type of eyeshadow that just makes you doubt all other formulas because it’s just that good (and it’s a purple shade!!). It lasted for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

Gemstone #6

Gemstone #6 is a deep, reddish-copper with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The finish wasn’t as metallic as other shades in the palette, though it used wet, it looked more metallic. The texture was smooth, more silicone-heavy and had some slip, which helped with blending, but for application on the lid, I recommend pressing and patting it on rather than trying to sweep it on. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Gemstone #7

Gemstone #7 is a medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had medium coverage, which was buildable if applied over primer or used with a dampened brush, but the chunkier texture from the added sparkle made it harder to use dry with a brush if more payoff was desired. It was nearly opaque when patted onto the lid with a fingertip. The texture felt smooth and had noticeable slip, which helped the glittery bits actually adhere to the lid and not drop everywhere (during application as well as later on during wear). It wore well for eight hours with minimal fallout.

Gemstone #8

Gemstone #8 is a soft, slightly warmed-up pink with flecks of copper sparkle and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly to bare skin but needed to be pressed and patted onto the lid with a synthetic brush for maximum coverage and adherence. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and blendable. It stayed on well for eight hours on me without noticeable fallout.

Gemstone #9

Gemstone #9 is a rich, medium-dark purple with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow was opaque with a smooth, moderately dense texture that was still easy to blend out along the edges. I found that the more I blended it out (use less than you think you’ll need!), it looked slightly less metallic, which helped it work to add depth to the palette (which is all shimmer). This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
