FIRST LOOK | HUDA BEAUTY MERCURY RETROGADE EYESHADOW PALETTE SWATCHES


It is starting to get annoying that every time a new product comes to my attention i.e. the Huda Beauty Nude Medium Obsessions Palettes, the brand has almost always just announced another brand new product. In this case, it is the Mercury Retrogade Palette. This palette contains 18 eyeshadows. There are three eyeshadow brushes and a makeup bag available to purchase separately in this collection. Inspired by the crystal aurora buarealis, hich is a stunning light show in the sky that can be seen in the northern hemisphere. I saw the aurora buarealis when I visited Reykjavik in Iceland two years ago, an amazing experience. This palette was actually made during mercury retrogade and is actually being released during mercury retrogade too. Mercury Retrogade palette will be available on 24th October


For those who don't know: Mercury Retrogade is basically a period of bad luck for astronomy lovers. When Mercury is in retrogade nothing seems to go to plan and people are trigger shy of making any important moves. Mercury is in retrogade about four times a year, as it is the planet closest to the sun its orbit is a lot faster than Earth, it takes Mercury about 88 days to travel around the sun to the Earth's 365. For this reason, every time Mercury passes the Earth in its orbit while Earth is leisurely making its way around this is when Mercury is in retrogade. Honestly, I don't pay much attention to this, but people like to talk about it. 


The colour story of this palette has absolutely nothing to do with Mercury at all, it is actually centred around the teal, purple and pinks seen in the northern lights. Altogether creating an aesthetically pleasing wintry holiday-appropriate palette that will  appeal to many people. For this reason, I wish it was called something other than Mercury Retrogade, it could have been called Aurora Buarealis and it would have made a lot more sense. However, I do love the eye look on the exterior of the palette, it looks very striking. Initially, I would think that these colours would be too pale or cool to work on warm skin tones but Huda showcases them on her own eyes on the artwork of the packaging and it looks incredible. 


There are a total of 4 different textures in this eyeshadow palette: the classic mattes, creamy shimmers, glitter balm and glitter toppers. You can see the swatches above. I haven't decided if I want to buy this palette yet, I think it is certainly pretty and well-timed with the cold months fast approaching, I am just not convinced I will get much wear out of these shades. So the jury is still out for me, but I would love to hear what you guys think? Would you get it? Do you like it? Thank you so much for reading, and please share your thoughts in the comments below. Take care. 

What do you think of Huda Beauty Mercury Retrogade Palette?
