Another item from the Boots box. Y’all know that I don’t purchase Huda and this palette is actually one of the reasons why.
The Rose Gold Remastered palette by Huda Beauty is available to buy from the company website (see here) as well as from Boots (here). This retails for £56. You get free UK shipping when you spend £48 with Huda and £25 with Boots. Once again, I’m not sure what delivery from Huda is like but Boots will deliver within a week.
The packaging is properly gorgeous. The outer box is gold with white text. All product information including the ingredients can be found on the back and sides of the box. The palette features an image of Huda surrounded by roses. It’s a beautiful image made even better with gold metallic accents to highlight certain areas. It adds an extra dimension to it. The palette is a good weight and feels well made. It has a magnetic closure to keep the lid secure and features a huge mirror on the inside. There’s also a protective sheet over the shadows.
This is an 18 pan palette that uses 4 key textures. It contains 8 mattes, 8 melted metallic shades, a pressed pearl and a transformative liner. The colour story is actually gorgeous and fits completely with the theme of the palette. The mattes give some variety and gradient blends though most of the versatility does come from the metallics.
When doing the swatches, the shadows felt soft and buttery. The mattes had good pigment and swiped smoothly with one layer without any patchiness. The metallics are gorgeous. All are soft and creamy with great pigment and shine though some have different finishes. The shade Moondust has a pearlescent finish and is perfect for highlighting. Rose gold is a gorgeous duo chrome shade and Dubai has pink reflects in the gold.
On the eye, the shadows worked best when gradually built up while blending. I found them to be tough to blend when packed on leaving harsh lines between shades. To be honest I really struggled with the shade Coco, it took some work to blend. Other than that the shadows work well together to create gradient blends. The shimmers are easy to apply and blend together. The liner was the most surprising. While dry it was pigmented and easy to blend and when wet it created an opaque liner that didn’t crack.
I’ve not had too many issues when using this palette despite the shades needing some hard blending. I’ve not had staining with any of the shades and the shimmers last for hours on the lid before they crease. There is a lot of kickback in the pan for most of the shades but particularly with the shimmers. There’s also some fallout under the eye for shimmers and the darker matte shades.
Overall, I’m surprisingly happy with the Rose Gold Remastered palette from Huda Beauty. The palette is well made and has a gorgeous design. Absolutely love the shade range. You can create a range of gradient looks with the mattes and the metallics really add versatility. The mattes can be a little hard to blend but building them up makes them easier to work. The metallics are gorgeous full of pigment and shine. We even have a duochrome shade which is stunning.
