Huda Beauty is fresh off releasing her new Huda Beauty Tantour and Resting Boss Face Setting Spray. Unfortunately, similar to the setting spray which is available to purchase now, her newest release the Neon Obsessions Mini Palettes have been leaked. Huda announced this on her Instagram Stories, a Sephora employee stole the palettes to leak on their Instagram in order to gain followers.

This is not the first time a brand has had to deal with leaks, Jeffree Star recently shared in a video that his Magic Star Concealers were leaked (post here) and Anastasia Beverly Hills and Norvina have taken to Twitter to lament about leaks of their products. The Neon Obsessions launch May 30th!

Huda is releasing three new Obsessions Palette as part of her Neon Collection. She already has multiple Obsessions Palettes including: Warm Brown Obsessions, Ruby Obsessions, Gemstone Obsessions, Coral Obsessions, Topaz Obsessions, Mauve Obsessions, Emerald Obsessions, Sapphire Obsessions and Amethyst Obsessions.  All of which retail for £25, therefore her three new palettes should possess a similar price point. There is the Neon Pink Obsessions, swatched above. You can see it is quite a monochromatic palette in the pink family, with a lilac and purple shade and a coral pink shade too. I am not sure I would get much wear out of this as I already have the Huda Beauty New Nude Palette.

Next is Neon Orange Obsessions, which is a palette that screams summer to me. I love the colours in this palette as they have a nice range, from a gorgeous vibrant yellow to a peach coral matte and pinks. The goldfish orange shimmer is stunning, but for a palette named Neon Orange Obsessions there is not a lot of orange at all, a tad misleading, but I do think you could create some great fun looks with this eyeshadow palette that will inspire a lot of makeup enthusiasts. 

Last is Neon Green Obsessions, which has a similar theme to orange there is only three greenish shades in this palette. Again a lot of cool colours, I particularly like the purples and would love to see them in a green look as purple and green are contrasting colours on the colour wheel. The blue shimmers are a bit of a wild card, pretty but not sure they fit in with this colour scheme. 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. At the moment I have no plans to buy these palettes only because I don't see myself using them very much. Out of all of them the Neon Orange Obsessions appeals to me the most, which one do you like best out of the three: Pink, Orange or Green? I am shocked as to how many products Huda is coming out with so quickly but it makes sense given the leaks which is a real shame. Have you tried any other Huda Beauty products, like the Tantour or Resting Boss Face? Hope you are having a great week, guys! Take care.

Which of the Neon Obsessions have caught your eye, would you buy?

Hello Met Gala, I did my due diligence on social media perusing the Met Gala looks of this year. I love this time of year, I love looking at the different interpretations of the Met Gala theme. This year the theme is Camp Notes on Fashion which I believe embodies the notion of being extra just to be extra. Please correct me if I am wrong, Vogue usually delve deep into the meaning and story behind the Met theme as the host of the Met ball is none other than fashion mogul Anna Wintour. I was surprised that more so than the gowns and garments, the makeup really caught my eye this year. So let's talk about it. First up and potentially my favourite is Lily Collins as seen above, it is striking, beautiful with a distinct vintage feel. I love pastels in makeup, especially lavenders and lilac and the makeup and hair complement each other so well. Overall a very cohesive, eye-catching look.

This graphic forest green eye look from Sophie Turner is mesmerising against her blue eyes and pale hair. This was a look that is much better appreciated close up as with a full view her attire is quite distracting. To the point where it detracts from how honestly stunning she is, her cheekbones are something else. I love the glitter frost in her carefully styled hair, it is very tastefully done. 

I have one question for you: have you watched Us? If the answer to that is no, stop what you are doing right now, go to the nearest cinema and patiently wait until the next showing. Watch it. Come back. And please let's discuss. I have watched all the videos there are on that movie unpicking the tiniest details and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. I equally enjoy the pink mermaid fish scale-esque effect on Lupita Nyong'o. Very cool. The dark lip perfectly balances out the Jojo Siwa of the dress too. 

Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch has an ethereal gown that flatters her perfect fair skin and brilliant red hair. I am impressed by this look, the soft, pretty yet editorial makeup with the bitty lashes and blunt bangs against shoulder wings of nearly transparent mint is an aesthetic. I underestimated her and her stylist. Love this look. And I really like that she isn't wearing a necklace to give this stunning design a platform to steal the show. So pretty

Kendall Jenner is beautiful and her makeup is spot on flawless as always. Nothing about this screams Met Gala to me, there is no risk. She looks Victoria Secret runway perfect and that to me is slightly disappointing. I would have liked something that would set this makeup look apart from every other makeup look she does. I do appreciate the lashes though. 

Speaking of not playing safe, Priyanka Chopra came to play, although not my favourite this is clearly not your everyday I am famous so I have to look picture perfect makeup look. It is clearly a Met Gala look. I like that it is different and the monochromatic elements that tie it in together. The lip is gorgeous on her but the base is not my favourite. I can't put my finger on what it is, perhaps it is too matte. Unexpected. Which really is all I ask for at this point. 

I saw Candice Swanepoel on Patrick Ta's page and it is a tad hypocritical that I am salivating over this look when I dismissed Kendall's typical VS makeup. I don't know, there is something about this that just feels elevated and extra compared to Kendall's. Maybe I am just a sucker for blue eyes and this is blue eye prejudice but this is so ridiculously gorgeous. I cannot breathe. Imagine being  this beautiful? Can you imagine it? Ariana Grande reference. I know you got  it.

Lady Gaga has kind of fell off the radar for me. I had to think for a minute what the saying is. It might be because of the annoyingly loud hype Shallow got. If any movie gets praised to death it is a huge turn off for me, for this reason I still have not and will not watch La La Land. Her look here is cool but without the lashes it would be meh. And that is a cop out in my book, She looks great though. Her hair is cute too. 

Joan Smalls, also painted by Patrick Ta, looks amazing. Her eye look is one of my favourites actually and her hair is my favourite. Stunning artistry all round. Simple, elegant but still ostentatious. Patrick really knows what he is doing and he just knows skin, base and faces so well. It is like they are painted by an angel. Gorgeous. 

Wow wow wow, Ezra Miller wanted people to choke when they saw him. I love the sfx makeup inspiration, this trippy look is so cool and when executed this well impossible to look away from. I love that he did this, paired with a perfect red lip. Giving me Dita von Teese. But better. Why is he so cool? It is a mystery. 

The master that is Mario, of course, glammed Kim Kardashian West and I disagree with the eye roll another bronze look response this is getting. Regardless, Mario is extremely good at what he does and the shine that is so precisely placed and so perfectly balanced is what seals this look as one of my favourites. It is gorgeous and expected in some ways, but done by anyone else it would look like trash. Her boobs look amazing to boot.

Thank you for reading,  please comment below your favourite look that you have seen this year. I watched Avengers Infinity War yesterday, and Zoe Saldana looked gorgeous at the Met this year too. I will watch End Game this weekend. Have you seen it yet? Hope you enjoyed your bank holiday weekend. I haven't decided if I am going to do a fashion rundown yet but if I do it will be soon. Most likely on my Instagram Stories, so follow me on there. It is alittlekiran. Thank you. Take care.

Summer is coming, so the pursuit of the perfect glowing skin is ongoing. To the rescue, Huda Beauty are releasing a brand new body highlighter to give you the goddess-like skin you have been craving, jokingly called N.Y.M.P.H (£40) which stands for Not Your Mam's Panty Hose this face and body highlight will make you visible from outer space. The release date is 3rd May. Described as a transfer-proof, streak-proof body and face liquid highlighter that will leave you with a gorgeous summer glow. Inspired by Beyonce no less, and created to mimic the perfect pantyhose that don't look like your mama's pantyhose. Available in 3 shades suitable for a plethora of skin tones. Can be used on its own, underneath or mixed into foundation.

The formula is unique and ostentatious with 28% being light-reflecting pearl pigments. In spite of the extra-terrestrial-like glow many, including Huda herself, swear by using this as a face primer to radiate through heavy full coverage matte foundations. The shades currently available are: Luna is a white gold shimmer with hints of silver and gold ideal for those with lighter skin complexions. Aphrodite is a beautiful golden bronze shimmer that is best suited to medium tan skin tones. Aurora is a rich coppery shimmer with golden pearls suitable for those with deeper skin tones. Undoubtedly I believe this range will be extended if this launch proves a hit.  

I would love to hear your thoughts regarding body glow products as they are especially popular this time of year, with many high end beauty brands possessing their own, including but not limited to Charlotte Tilbury, Nars Cosmetics, Fenty Beauty and more. Personally, I do not understand the hype body glow products receive, I feel they can be easily DIYed and the accompanying high price tags are unjustifiable. Regardless, I would love to hear your thoughts. What do you think of the new Huda Beauty NYMPH? Will you be buying it? Do you already have a body glow product you are loyal to, or have a life hack that ensures you have supermodel worthy skin all year round? 

Please share your thoughts and opinions below. Thank you for reading, apologies about the inconsistency in posting it is strictly due to wifi issues at the moment. This is ongoing, so things are going to be a tad inconsistent over here, but what's new. Hope you are having a great day. Take care.

What do you think of the new Huda Beauty N.Y.M.P.H.?
