It was then that my love for DIY skincare products made me think why not try and make a DIY tea tree foaming anti acne face wash with all the good ingredients minus the chemicals. Sounds great right!

Huda beauty Obsessions palette in warm brown

thebeautymascot/huda beauty obsessions palette

The Huda beauty Obsessions palette comes in a sturdy black packaging with a magnetic closure. Not fancy-looking, but I still like how it looks. Compact, light-weight, easy to carry wherever you go and also has a mirror. The Obsessions palette has 9 shades. The palette has a good amount of product even though it looks small. The shadows are placed close, so no extra space wasted and there is no brush, which however is going to be useless.

I bought the warm brown obsessions palette because I loved all the shades in the palette. The Warm brown palette is a warm toned neutral palette and consists of 8 matte shades and one shimmery gold shade. Shades which enable you to create any looks both day to night. All the shades in the palette are so pigmented. They have a smooth, soft, texture some shades are dry and powdery while some other shades have a creamy texture. Either ways, blends so well. There is no fall out or very little fall out. Some shades have absolutely zero fall out, but some shades do have some fall out. But I have noticed that some other palettes like the Electric have fall out.The eye shadows stays all day without creasing.

The warm brown obsessions palette consists of the following shades

#1 A medium-dark red with warm undertones

#2 Brighter, medium orange with strong, warm yellow undertones.

#3 Rich medium dark orange-red with warm undertones.

#4 Deep brown with subtle, warm red undertones.

#5 Rich, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen.

#6 Light yellow with warm undertones.

#7 Medium orange with warm, red undertones.

#8 Light medium brown with warm, yellowish undertones.

#9 Rich, coppery brown with warm undertones.
