I was just eyeing the Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter palette for a very long time and thankfully my friend gifted the Pink Sands palette to me. Huda created 2 Huda Beauty 3D highlighter palettes with 4 shades each to create that perfect 3D glow and to suit everyone. The 2 palettes are Pink Sands for fair to medium skin tones and Golden Sands for medium to dark skin tones. In today’s post, I will share my reviews and swatches of Huda Beauty Pink Sands 3D Highlighter Palette.
The Pink Sands 3D Highlighter Palette comes in a beautiful matte quad with 4 large pans with different textures, 3 powder and 1 cream. Instructions on how the palette is to be used is mentioned in the inside magnetic cover. I quite like the packaging.
Texture / Formula / Shades :
The Pink Sands has more of Rose gold and Pinkish tones and good for Fair to Medium skin tones. The palette has 3 powder highlighters and 1 creamy melted strobe.
1. Prep – Capri – Creamy Melted Strobe – ‘Dainty Pale Pink’ as Huda calls it. It is a beautiful Rose Gold highlighter according to me.
2. Set – Santorini – ‘Soft White sand with a Golden glow’, Just a little application is enough.
3. Sculpt – Azores – ‘Light Gold with opalescent sheer’, a beautiful gold shade.
4. Flush – Ibiza – ‘Party starter Pink with light gold shimmer’ .
The shade ‘Capri‘ has a mousse or creamy texture. It is made with Shea Butter, that explains why it blends so well and pearls that gives that shimmer and shine. It melts like a dream. Only a little product is enough to create that magic.
The shades, ‘Santorini‘, ‘Azores‘ and ‘Ibiza‘ are powder highlighters are all smooth and extremely pigmented. They blend well too.
You can use each shade individually or blend in all the shades according to how Huda would use it and explained on the palette inside cover. You can even mix and match and create your own unique combination.
So far I love Capri on its own or with combination with any of these 3 powder highlighters.
These highlighters can be easily applied by any highlighter brush, fan brush or your fingers even. It is a controlled amount if you use your fingers. By brush you might end up picking up way too much.
Overall Review :
I am extremely happy to have this Huda Beauty Pink Sands 3D Highlighter palette with me and looks wonderful on my skin. I love the way how all the 4 shades can be used together to create the most amazing and flawless 3D highlight. Not tried Golden Sands edition as yet but would definitely like to give it a go too.
