The Huda Beauty Desert Dusk eyeshadow palette, which came out on September 18, has 18 new breathtaking and highly pigmented shades with red, orange, pink, and purple undertones. There are 8 matte eyeshadows named Blazing, Saffron, Amethyst, Amber, Oud, Musk, Eden, and Desert Sand.

To give your eye makeup a bit of a pop, finish it off with the 3 duo-chrome topper shades in Celestial, Retrograde, and Twilight. As a bonus, Huda Beauty included one pure glitter shade in Cosmo, a fiery red, glittery color.

If it's Too Boujee, Here are Other Options

The palette comes at a whopping price of US$65, a little bit more expensive than the price for luxury eyeshadow palettes that we’re used to.
