I was such a fan of the first launch of the HUDA Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes I couldn’t resist picking up a couple from the new Precious Stones collection!

what is it
The HUDA Beauty Precious Stones Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes are stated to be a “day-to-night color wardrobe” of 9 “highly pigmented, creamy metallic and duochome eye shadows inspired by the rich reflection of gemstones”.
Five shades are released within the Precious Stones launch in Ruby, Sapphire and Amethyst plus the two I purchased – Topaz and Emerald.
This post will focus solely on Topaz.
The HUDA Beauty Topaz Precious Stones Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is a warm mix of golds, bronze, brown and orange tones… and I’m loving it a lot more than I thought I would.
I knew it was the most wearable (to me) and though you can complete a full look with just this palette it’s one that you’d go out of your way to work into your routine on a daily basis.
I’m really shocked Topaz isn’t getting more love. It’s one of those palettes that I think anyone who loves warm tones will gravitate towards plus I found the performance to be right on par (meaning completely fabulous) with the other Obsessions Palettes that I’ve tried.
The mattes applied and blended well for me and the metallic shades looked fantastic wet over a sticky base (I use Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme). Over primers these shades are vibrant and last all day long.
Below the HUDA Beauty Topaz Precious Stones Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is swatched dry and on bare skin (no primers) using a finger:
