Huda Beauty Textured Eyeshadow Palette Rose Gold Edition Review & Swatches

About a month or so ago, my beautiful human other-half purchased me the stunning Huda Beauty Textured Eyeshadow Palette Rose Gold Edition just out of no where. I have been wanting to try this palette for AGES, but it has been out of stock for a long time, and it costs $95 (ouch). I have also heard some not-so-good reviews, which also made me reluctant.

First off, this is available from Sephora online & in-store. It does cost a bank-breaking $95.00 AUD. Even though bae bought this for me, I forced him to use my 10% off voucher I had with my Sephora Black Card Membership (so make sure to keep an eye out for any offers by simply asking the cashier to check for you).

I have decided to try condense my review & get all the most interesting and important stuff out (instead of the mindless babble I’m known for).

Below are images of myself wearing the shadows. I’m sorry, I can’t remember the exact shades. But I do use MAN-EATER, SANDALWOOD & HENNA quite a bit.


The palette comes in a black cardboard packaging, with a clear window so you can see all the beautiful products inside. There are 18 eyeshadows; 3 ready to layer textures, deep mattes, 3D metals & pressed pearls. The colours vary from a number of rose golden shades (hallelujah) to warm reds, browns, naturals and gorgeous looking greens. I 100% would use every single eyeshadow in this palette, so its definitely a good pick of colours for my personal tastes.


  • Gorgeous colour range
  • Tons of variations; 18 different shadows
  • Non-bulky packaging; very mobile & compact
  • MOST colours are super easy to blend out
  • MOST shadows are not streaky on the eyelid
  • Long-lasting with an eyeshadow primer & setting powder
  • Textures don’t require Fix Plus or adhesive
  • You get 0.99 grams per shadow (0.035oz) $5.20 AUD per shadow > with Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows you get 1.8 grams (0.064 oz) $13.00 AUD


  • Crazy expensive – $95 AUD > you do get what you pay for, IN MY OPINION.
  • A few shades are streaky – MAN-EATER
  • A few shades lack pigment – MAN-EATER, COCO & SUEDE
  • Fall out with textures – try and do your face makeup after your eye makeup to avoid ruining your base
  • ROSEGOLD texture a little weird to use – slightly grainy and harder to work with than the other textures
  • I feel like I’m going to go through the textures very quickly

Holy Swatches


Look, this is a tough one. If you can afford to drop almost $100 on a palette, go for it. I personally LOVE the shadows. The textures do take a little more effort to use as you’re much better going in with your fingertip than a brush, to get a fuller effect. I feel like a lot of us give crazy harsh exceptions onto brands and bloggers with followings to create this masterpiece perfect straight away. I believe Huda has done quite well on this palette. There are definitely a few streaky and slightly chalky matte colours, but hey, a good majority are beautiful. Its definitely a gorgeous collectors piece.

If you still are curious whether or not you want to spend the dosh on this; go in store and have a feel for yourself. If you’re not near a Sephora, do your research! Check out the Sephora website for reviews & other blog posts. See what others don’t like, and if this will be an issue to you.

What is your verdict on the palette?
