Huda Beauty New Rose Gold Remastered Eyeshadow Palette Swatches & Release Date
I am sure you have already heard that Huda Beauty is bringing back her limited edition Rose Gold Textured Shadows palette (review here), but this time it is different. Huda explains on her blog that after the initial success of her first few palettes that she wanted to take into account the feedback she received to bring out an even better version. There is some controversy surrounding this palette, for instance there was a video by drama channel Here For The Tea, suggesting that it is pretty shady for Huda and her team to bring out a subpar palette and cutting corners in the first place and that she should have waited until she could afford to bring out a high quality palette

I couldn't agree less with this sentiment. The palette she brought out originally is a great palette in my opinion. I don't have long nails so I don't encounter any trouble using the specially formulated "textured shadows" which are essentially chunky af glitters. The mattes swatch okay but on the eyelids they blend really well and build well also, and with a base they really do last all day and night. I understand that a lot of people feel the complete opposite and do not fuck with this palette, but nothing works for everyone. That is just the truth. My biggest problem is that it retails for £56 which is ridiculously high when considering Huda's admission that they had to cut corners on packaging etc. The only saving grace is with the Desert Dusk Palette and Remastered Rose Gold palette the price has remained the same in spite of the blatant improvement in packaging (a mirror, a cover, more design work etc.). 

So what is different, you may ask? Basically, the original textured shadow formulas which are difficult to  use with a brush can now be used with a brush.  It could still be done with the original, if you add some oil or really dig in and use a spray for adherence but I understand that is a lot more hassle than people are prepared to do. Again, I use my fingers but a lot of people have long nails or just don't want to get their fingers dirty for many reasons. Instead of being textured shadows in the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered Palette (£56) they are now melted metals with a liquid metal finish. You still will get more payoff with your fingers though. It releases on May 22nd and will be available on Cult Beauty in the UK if you are from here. Still 18 shades and this time there is a mirror as well as better packaging. 

Thank you so much for reading, I would be interested to hear what your thoughts are on this palette. Did you try the original Rose Gold palette? Are you more interested in this version? Hope you are having a great week and hopefully the weather is as sunny as it is in London right now. Take care.

What are your thoughts on this remastered palette?

  1. The palette is gorgeous, you are totally right! Wish it was affordable, as £56 is way too much for me and for many others! That's why I don't own any Huda palette!

  2. It is such a gorgeous palette and you can tell that she cares so much about her products but the price :( x

  3. I do really like the shades in this palette, but the price seems far too high! It just seems like they're cashing into the hype, because there's a lot of high end palettes that are more affordable x

  4. I'm a huge fan of Here for the Tea but, like you, I don't always agree with everything she says. I, unfortunately, didn't pick up the original (my bank account just wasn't feeling it at the time and I picked up the Naked Heat instead beacuse, well, I couldn't not, Kiran) but I did swatch and play with the palette in Sephora and I loved it! But, if Huda herself wasn't happy with it, it's totally her right to remaster it, and this looks even better than the first one, so you might catch me finally splashing the cash (sorry bank balance) on this beauty! Though, as we saw on the video from HFTT, she was preswiping the shades on those swatches, which could indicate a pigmentation issue. However, I won't know or predetermine anything until I've tried it myself and I'm genuinely looking forward to doing so! Another amazing and informative post from you, Kiran - I'm always loving your blog! x
    Lots of love,
    Marina Rosie x

  5. I am not buying this new palette either, I've never been drawn to Huda Beauty as a brand so I don't feel like I'm missing out.
