THE BEST HUDA ROSE GOLD PALETTE DUPE??

Hello my loves, I'm finally getting into the swing of things on the blog it's been a rough ride for me to get my shit together but we're getting there! Today's post is another super exciting discovery from a brand called UCANBE. Now, if you've never heard of them, then that's okay! Because neither did I until I came across them on Amazon one day. I've always, always wanted a HUDA Beauty palette but I've just not plucked up the courage to spend £40+ on one...yet...so when I saw this for only £8 I was extremely hesitant yet extremely excited!

Some of you are probably thinking, oh girl don't trust a cheap palette from Amazon from a brand you've never heard of! But that's part of the intrigue and excitement you know, in the words of Bunny Meyer "DOES THIS THING REALLY WORK?"and you bet your ass it does! It arrived in immaculate condition (the chips in the shadows are my own doing - I'm clumsy!) with a protective plastic shield over the shadows. Unfortunately, there is no mirror which I think would of worked so perfectly considering the palette size. But does including a mirror bump up the price...??





The swatches I was very impressed with, especially those mattes! My absolute favourite shade has to be Turkish Delight (third from the right, bottom row) it's an absolutely gorgeous cranberry red that literally makes me want to cry it's so pretty. The formula is ever so creamy and easy to blend which I was not expecting from such a cheap palette. And as you can see the colour payoff is there! I really stepped out of my comfort zone whilst trying out this palette for the first time, as you can see from the photos, using pinks and bright yellow/golds I was cautious but it paid off and this has to be one of my favourite looks to date. The only thing I will say is some of the shimmers, Eden, (third in from the right, top row) needs a little help to bring out the pigment, so what I did was spray a little fixing spray on my brush before applying and it worked wonders. 

For £8 I couldn't recommend it enough, there is a little fallout when dipping your brush into the shadows, but in all honesty, that really doesn't bother me..it's just messy :( 



If you would like to see this palette in more detail I filmed a video of the look pictured above on my YouTube channel which you can watch HERE

Let me know in the comments what you think? Would you try out this dupe? Is HUDA still number one in your heart even though the price is steep? Let me know!
