Everyone and their mother has a make up line these days. Except me and my mother. What the hell Mom?
The first time I had ever heard of Huda beauty I was confused. I had no idea who this person was or why everyone was freaking out about it. Huda was an ultimate stranger to me. Could have been a hobo for all I knew. Turns out nope, Huda was living in Dubai and working in finance, and really not happy where her career was headed. So she made the shift to beauty and being a beauty influencer. The top beauty influencer in the world at that… where had I been? Living under a giant rock under at the bottom of the ocean it would seem
Her first launch came in the form of false eyelashes (which I rarely wear), and then a few lip products, and she is now dabbling in foundation and eyeshadow palettes as well.
All I own from this company is their first eye shadow palette, the Textured Rose Gold Shadow palette. Although I found it to be “ok” it was not quiet on the value point I needed it to be. Ringing in around $85 CAD for 18 shadows, ($4.70 per shadow) it really needed to be amazing. Unfortunately it fell short of the mark. Not short enough that I returned it, but definitely to a point where I would not recommend it to others. There are too many more affordable options that perform much better in my opinion.
As far as the brand is concerned I feel as though they are laying their pricing bench marks on Huda’s popularity on social media and not on the quality of their products, I have heard there have been some improvements made since I have purchased this palette, but the entire thing put a foul taste in my mouth, and I have been disinterested ever since.
Have you tried anything from Huda? Should I give her another shot?
