As I suspected might happen, the top row greens, which look colour accurate in this picture, skew yellow in every other. So, commit this one to memory as we proceed. The green row is the one I might struggle with in terms of wearability – they’re not shades I’d wear as clothes or accessories so I can’t see them featuring on my lids
This brand uses a lot of one particular formulation – a kind of powder-cream fine sparkle that are a nightmare to swatch. They are like mini-constellations in the wear though – an explosion of shimmer and twinkle that often come out differently than you’d expect. For example, the first pan on the second row looks like it will veer to a pinkish shade but in fact, it’s a multi-colour iridescent, mermaidy kind of finish. The deeper colour third in the row turns into a pale blue and pink star burst.
So, it seems to me that this variant of the Neon palettes (Green Obsessions) from HUDA Beauty is the perfect festival palette but thereafter, I’m not sure. It’s for the beauty brave but the pay-off is spectacular.
