Pros: big size, excellent eyeshadows, glow, long-wearing
Cons: dark shades, the creamy highlighter is useless, too scented

I got this Huda Beauty palette from a goody bag. And unfortunately it was in the most unflattering color Golden Sands.

The highlighters are housed in a magnet compact with a protective liner inside that provides the names of the shades. Alas, there’s no mirror inside. When I open the palette, I can feel the sweet and oriental scent at once. I don’t understand why the Huda Beauty always scents their cosmetics like this. I guess that the pink highlighter has the most potent aroma.

Fiji is a yellow cream shade, which seems to be the most useless from the palette. It feels as though I have to apply it first and then set it with powder.

It doesn’t want to apply with a brush, that’s why I have to apply it with my finger. You can also try to use it as a base shade for your eyeshadows, but still, who ever came up with such a yellow highlighter? As for me, I found a use of it for my lip makeup.

I either apply it before my lipstick for a highlighting effect, or over it for a more vibrant and bold shine. It looks amazeballs on my lips.

Seychelles is a dry, fair-beige shade, which I use most of all. Following the logic of the palette this shade is to set the cream highlighter. Of course it still isn’t flattering for my fair skin color, but the product can still be used as a highlighter. I usually apply it over my brow bone, cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose and inner corners of the eyes.

The texture is fine, the wear time is fantastic and I’m sure that it won’t fade throughout the day.

The glow doesn’t seem delicate, so be careful so as not to apply too much. The only con about this shade is the glitter, which is visible.

Tahiti is the darkest shade from the palette. It feels as though it’s a bronzing or contouring powder, but it has glitter to the formula. So it’s a pain in the ass, if I use it as a bronzer. But, it’s nice as an eyeshadow: long-wearing, bright and beautiful. It doesn’t fall out during the application, especially if I apply it with a damp brush.

Zanzibar - pink shade, which is the most scented from the palette. I use it as a blush or eyeshadow. It looks rather decent over my cheeks and doesn’t seem to be so active and bright. I like the glow that it shows. As the previous shade, this one also is a perfection for my eyes. It doesn’t fall out and stays on the entire day over a primer. The damp brush reveals bright and thick color coverage.

The palette has a huge amount of the products inside.

The creamy product has 6g, (0.26 oz), and the dry powders have 8g (0.28 oz) each. The price is $57.

All in all, the palette is good quality-wise. If you have a dry skin type, then even the creamy highlighter will be fine for you. I like using it. Unfortunately, the color selection isn’t for me, and I wish I had Pink Sands in my goody bag. But still I can recommend this palette.
