When I was a kid, everyone was into Take That (the first time around, I’m that old) and I tried so hard to get into them because everyone else was, so I listened to their music, picked a favourite (Mark Owen) and generally made an effort to get into them, although my heart was never in it. I had the same sort of feeling about the Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette; everyone raved about it and I tried really hard to get excited about it, but my heart just wasn’t in it. People went crazy for it and even though it’s been around for a while, it’s still in demand at Cult Beauty (find it here). Now we have the Huda Beauty Deserk Dusk Palette to change things.
The new Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette is a whole different thing for me, and I will definitely need to get my hands on it. I’m not really sure why I like it so much more than the original Huda palette, maybe it’s the inclusion of all those beautiful burnt golds and oranges, with those pops of bright purple as well as the lavender laced beige in Retrograde and the shimmering cranberry shade Turkish Delight – I think this palette just speaks to me in a way that the other one didn’t, mainly because I can see so much potential here and joy to be had with all those different colour combinations, whereas I looked upon the original palette and wondered how I would use those glittery numbers at the top.
There are four different textures across 18 shades in the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette: eight matte shades, six pressed pearls, three duo-chrome toppers and one pure glitter. I think this sounds like a joyfully versatile palette that will provide hours of play, so I’m excited about the launch date; which is the 18th September at Harrods, Selfridges and Cult Beauty. Expect chaos, move quickly, ready yourself at midnight…you’ll be in good company as I’ll be there, hitting refresh like a maniac too!
