This review is long overdue, but I still want to give this palette a thorough and honest review. It’s the Huda Beauty New Nude Palette. A palette that has been on my wishlist forever and which I got a while ago already. When this palette launched I didn’t buy it because I thought it was expensive (little did I know that I would purchase $120 palettes later lol) and I had been drooling over it ever since. The excitement was real when I finally decided to purchase the palette!
In a small time period, Huda Beauty became one of my favorite brands and this isn’t because her products are bad obviously. I really love the Power Bullet Lipsticks, the Lip Strobe, Demi Matte and Matte Liquid lipsticks as well as the eyeshadow formula from the Nude Obsessions palettes.
I actually tested the Huda Beauty New Nude palette before I tested the Mercury Retrograde palette but asked my followers which review they wanted to see first and that was the Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde Review. In the meantime, other products came out and I didn’t want to spam you with only eyeshadow palette reviews and/or only Huda Beauty reviews soooo I kept this review in the Beautymone archives and here we are today.
As you all know by now, I love my neutral palettes. I own a lot of them but I still love to add more. This Huda Beauty palette felt like a great addition to my neutral collection but was I right? We’re going to find that out in today’s blog post!
Huda Beauty New Nude Palette
The Huda Beauty New Nude Palette contains 19 shades and retails for $65. There are a couple of different formulas in this palette, which the Huda Beauty website explains as:
- 10 Highly Pigmented Matte Eyeshadows, formulated with Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil for butter-like application.
- 4 Reflective Shades, featuring shimmering pearl flecks for a gorgeous duo-chromatic finish.
- 2 Glitter Formulas, infused with innovative silicones for advanced adherence, pigment dispersion, and luminosity.
- 1 Pressed Pearl, combined with Acacia, Jojoba and Sunflower Wax for a high-shimmer finish that layers effortlessly on top of mattes, adding dreamy depth and dimension.
- 1 Concealer Base, for flawless application, and to boost eyeshadow.
The palette is talc-free and fragrance-free.
I like the variety of formulas in this palette and watching the shades in the pan, it looks absolutely beautiful! Let’s dive into the swatches to see if they perform on the arm and eyes.

First of all, as you can tell, the palette is very pigmented. All of the shades swatched easily and pigmented on the arm, even the glitters. I did go over the glitters a couple of times to make sure you could see the colors well but you can definitely use just a little bit of them too.
I love how you can easily tell the difference between the formulas too. Sometimes I have palettes that have different formulas but you can barely tell. In this palette Excite and Infatuated are the glitter shades, Crave, Fantasy, Daydream, and Charmed are the reflective shades with a duochrome finish, Kinky is the pressed pearl, Concealed is the concealer base and the rest are all matte shades.
The matte shades do have a little bit of fallout/ kickback in the pan. I also noticed that the glitters shades have fallout and easily spread around my face, but this happens with lots of glitter shades though. It’s nothing too serious but you have to be aware of this.
The shades in this palette are very diverse but still fall in the nude shade range, which I think is awesome. The palette is a more pink-toned nude palette instead of an orangy/brownish nude palette. I love this pinkish vibe a lot! It makes this Huda Beauty New Nude palette special to me.

I absolutely love the pigmentation of this palette. It’s slightly powdery and I notice some kickback in the pan as well as fallout (mostly the glitters though) on the face but it’s easily wiped away with some setting powder.
The diversity in the shade range, as well as the formula, is amazing in my opinion. You can tell there are different formulas in the palette and lots of options for makeup looks. You can easily go for a daytime look as well as a full glam look.
The palette might be a little on the expensive side, I do think it’s worth the money due to the pigmentation, blendability, diversity in formulas, and shade range. Overall, I’m very pleased with the formulas, the shades, and the actual looks I create with this palette. It’s aesthetically pleasing to look at in the pan but also on the eyes.
This is my all time favourite palette! I love it so much, and although I wish the concealer shade wasn’t in there, it’s just palette perfection. I wish she’d create a warm neutral brown themed palette in this size and format, and it would be the perfect duo! xo
So many pinks/mauves in one place, I can literally loose my breath just staring at this palette. I’m glad to see diversity in the shades, as I hate when the finished eye look gives the impression that you only used one shade.

Ooh I love the glittery shades, they look so pretty! A lot of it might be a bit too nudey for me as I have yellow toned skin, I’m not sure they’ll show up, but Huda products really never disappoint! Their packaging is also very simple but yet chic.
These palette looks gorgeous! Love these pink and neutral shades – and I always like to add a shimmer or glitter to my eyeshadow – it really brings out the eye in my opinion.

First, I love the score thing you did (kinda want to steal it ahahah) The shades look pretty but I wished the glitters had two different tones. Like a red and a gold, I think they look too similar.
These shades look very beautiful and so pigmented. Thank you for review.

LOL you know I love this palette (its my top ranked Huda Palette haha), so I totally agree that this palette is worth the higher price point. Especially given that the textures really stand out from one another. This palette is like magic on the eyes – I always get compliments on it when I wear it lol.
