Hi Everybody!

I am here sitting in my garden, I still can't believe how hot is it today and I am considering phoning sick in work tomorrow...would it sound suspicious?

So a couple of weeks I discovered Selfridges is now stocking Huda Beauty online so I decided to write this post to share with you my thoughts about the first product ever I got from the brand.

I got the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette as soon as it became available to buy in Uk.
Whils everybody was fighting to buy it from Cult Beauty waiting for new stocks etc, I got it from Harrods without any problem and at the same price, yay!

The palette has been one of the most successful releases of 2016, with every single blogger, make up artist, make up junkie and their mothers wanting it and raving about it.

I got mine, I tested it, tried it and finally, after all these months I can tell you my final verdict: I love it!

First of all, the shade selections: 18 shades, 10 matte, 2 satin, 6 foiled metallic ones.

The matte shades go from the darkest black to the softest beige, a good selection of nude and browns and the pinks, with maneater being my favourite.

These shades are very versatile, they can be used as transition shades, for a soft neutral look or for the most dramatic smoky.

The texture is smooth and velvety and none of it has a dramatic fall out during the application.

The foiled shadows have created a bit of a controversy, with a lot of people complaining about problems in the application.

I kind of see the point, because the creamy texture makes absolutely impossible to apply these shadows with a brush.

I have tried any kind of brush available, silicone, duofiber, natural bristles etc, nothing, thy just won't stick to any of them.

The only way to apply these shadow is by using your dear old finger.

I know, it can be annoying and i was a bit concerned about it when I read all the comments about this matter, but once I saw the swatches, everything was forgiven, everything, because, look at these....

I have done few full eyes make up with this palette and the shadows last a long time (with primer of course), just after a full day (I am talking about 12 hours or more) I could notice the foiled shades tent to crease.

So what's my final verdict?
Well, this is a tricky one.

I love this palette, I really do and if you are like me an obsesse make up junkie, you can't miss it, it's a must have.

But I must admit it comes with a high price tag (£56) and despite being incredibly good, all the shadows are easily dupeable (gosh does this word exist at all?), I am sure even the foiled ones are easy to recreate with some pigments, glitters and mixing medium.

If you want to get it, you can find it here, here and here.

I will talk to you soon!
