I'm not keen on Huda's experiments with her duo-chrome shadow finish in her other large palette (the duo-chrome toppers in Desert Dusk) so was hesitant to get the New Nude palette; however these speckled ones are gorgeous and buttery [Crave, Fantasy, Daydream & Charmed]. They almost look molten as they gleam so vividly. Just stunning. Just remember; it's best to use a finger, sponge-tip applicator or Huda's Fender Blender to apply this finish.
Huda's pressed pearl metallics are my favourite shadow formula and we get a fantastic warm pink shade [Kinky] in the New Nude palette; as a pink shadow lover, I'm delighted - like with the speckled formula, the metallic is buttery and almost-molten in appearance.
There are ten soft mattes in delicate berry tones, rose and muted copper and golden taupe's in New Nude. The mattes are a world away from the ones in Huda's first eyeshadow palette [the original Rose Gold palette - I don't have the Remastered edition to compare]; they are buttery smooth, mega easy to blend, great to mix together to create new shades and they have next to no fallout. They're softer & easier to blend then the brand's Obsession palettes and the Desert Dusk palette - the formula reminds me of Charlotte Tilsbury's matte shadows.
Finally; the pan labelled 'Concealed' is not a shadow, it's a cream base meant as a primer. It is actually a really good primer, especially for the shimmers, metallic and the glitters - almost as good as using a glitter glue.
All of the shadows are non-fading, and I haven't experienced any creasing - I apply them in the morning and they'll still look good in the evening, when I remove it. The metallic shades have a bit more fallout in comparison to the other shadows which have very little, which isn't a dealbreaker for me but I still thought I'd mention it. Fallout in shadows doesn't really bother me as I do my eyes before my base - all pigmented & softer shadows have fallout, so I do think that all good-quality shadows should kick-up a bit.
On the not-so-great side; I don't think that the two pressed glitters [Excite & Infatuated] line up with the soft/traditionally feminine/everyday theme of this palette, so would have loved the glitter shades to have been in her pressed pearl formula instead.There's nothing wrong with their formula so I decided not to remove a lippie - I'm just not a fan of glitters.
The cream base idea is good, but it's not really practical; it does work really well, but why put a cream in a palette with fifteen soft powders and two pressed glitters - and why put it in a pan that's the same size as the shadows when it's meant to be used every time you wear something on your eye?
I have around half a dozen small palettes and two other large palettes by Huda Beauty, and I haven't bothered looking at them since I picked this up on it's date of release - I've not been using any of the fancy new stuff I go for Christmas much either. Between this and the Kat Von D Lolita eyeshadow palette, I've been feeling my preferred makeup style swinging back towards the soft n quieter, almost-neutral side lately and this palette fulfills all my needs and wants.
