I am back with another eyeshadow palette review.My love for eyeshadows is never ending and cannot stop myself from buying different palettes.Beauty Glazed is an affordable brand which is becoming popular these days.They are usually sold on Aliexpress or amazon.They are very affordable and are popular for duping high end products.I spot this at aliexpress and found them very similar to Huda beauty Gem stone obsessions series of small palettes.They have a red,blue ,emerald and purple themed 9 shadow pans .I picked the red one which is called Mars.
Price : I got it for 250 on aliexpress.
My take on the Product
Packaging : It comes in a cardboard packaging with the brand name and name of the palette written at the front and it has red details and borders going on as it is red themed palette.It does not have mirror.It is light weight and sleek.It is very convenient for travel .Overall,the packaging is average but considering the price cannot complain.
Shades : It has nine shadows .There are five matte shadows and four shimmer shadows.The shades range from peach,coral,hot pink and maroon.It also has a deep shimmery bronze for creating depth to an eye look.The palette lacks a deep dark matte color for creating depth but the shimmery darkest shade can do the job.I tried it to create depth on the outer corners and it worked fine.The palette will not give variety of looks as it is red themed palette so keep that in mind.The shadows are soft but a bit powdery and they have a little fallout.
Texture ,staying power and pigmentation: The shadows are smooth to touch.The mattes are creamy and they are packed with pigments.Each and every matte color blends nicely and is true to its color as in the pan.The shimmer shades initially feels hard but once the top layer is removed it is creamy and feels like it has an oily base which makes it look very foil on the lids.The formula for shimmer is different from usual palettes.the staying power is 5 to 6 hours which is decent in my point of view.
Is it a Huda beauty Ruby Obsessions Dupe?
I do not have Ruby Obsessions so cannot compare them side by side but I have seen many swatches and videos online.I can say that has similar color scheme.Some shades like first one in the second row is more deep in Huda’s palette,second shade in second row is a bit different and third shade in second row has a black base with red shimmers.So,in my opinion the colors are not 100% similar but the idea behind this palette is very much inspired by Huda’s ruby obsessions palette.The first and last rows are almost same as Huda’s palette.
In a nutshell it is not a bang on dupe but the color scheme,idea and thought behind the palette is same. You can get similar kinds of looks with these palettes.If you are on a budget or Huda beauty is not available in your country and you what to have a palette with the same color family,it is a good option.The quality for the price is amazing and you will not regret buying this.It is definitely a stand out palette in my collection.The colors are bright and a bit different.
If you are searching for an affordable huda beauty ruby replacement.,this is a good option to go.
