Look Book | Smokey Obsessions

Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions is a great neutral smokey palette with a good mix of matte and shimmer plus a rather excellent matte black (you can see the swatches here). Unlike the Mauve Obsessions, I find this one very easy to wear and versatile. Please read on for the look I recently created with this universally flattering palette.

Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions look swatch

Here are the core products I used.
Ulta Poreless Face Primer (I think it's a good alternative to Smash Box Photo Finish Primer.)
Too Faced Born This Way foundation in Swan
Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions
Becca Highlighter Rose Gold (as blush)
Rimmel Eastend Snob lipliner 
MAC Moder Kajal Twist (discontinued)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ebony
L'Oreal Lash Fantasy Waterproof in Blackest Black

The color placement is quite basic:
The matte clay(1) was applied all over to set a warm tone.
The shimmery medium bronze(2) was used as the lid color and the matte brown(4) on the outer Vs.
The matte black(5) was added for more intensity and finally, I used my finger to apply the pinkish taupe shimmer(3) in the middle of the lids. 

Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions look swatch review

Hope you enjoyed this look! 

I can't say Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions is truly unique but I'd highly recommend it especially if you have just started building your eyeshadow collections or want a compact smokey palette with all the essentials. I personally prefer something less pigmented but you'd enjoy this one if you like eyeshadows with nice color payoffs. 

Join the conversation!

  1. Enjoy it? I ADORE IT. You look splendid, I love how the colors come together on the lid but at the same time I can see each shade being used to its best advantage!

    Also can we talk about how Sweetheart looks on you? You make me want it!

    1. Aww, what a nice comment! Thanks, Mimi! You know how much I admire your eye looks especially for the creativity and your meticulous techniques - this means a lot :D

      I agree Sweetheart photographs very well. I have two colors from this range and they are way overdue for reviews. I gotta say I have a mixed feeling about them..;p

  2. While the palette isn't that unique the shades do look wearable and versatile and the look you've created is very pretty Lena!

    Hope you're enjoying a nice weekend. I'm finally finished with my course of antibiotics. 10 a day was no joke and they made me so loopy and tired all the time.

    1. Thanks, Rowena!

      I am glad to hear that the harder part of the treatment is now over. I absolutely agree that the scrumptious burger you had was well deserved. Take care of yourself. Hope you feel 100% again very soon! <3
