There are some brands I don’t mind paying extra for, while there are others I’m not very inspired by.
I was happy to see Huda Beauty had a 50% off sale and snagged The New Nude palette. I was interested in the moldy looking shades (not moldy just patches of white); they blend beautifully and are great shimmers.
The mattes where also pigmented and easy to blend as well. There was quite a bit of kickback but I personally don’t mind that.
