THERE'S FAKES ALREADY! Huda Beauty New Nude Palette | REAL vs FAKE #2

November 16, 2018


Huda Beauty's latest palette - New Nude launched on the 1st of November, just over two weeks ago and there are fake palettes quickly distributing around the market already! It's scary how quickly they can manufacture counterfeits and what's even scarier is there isn't one fake palette but 3! There's probably more but I'll show you the ones i've found, let's get right into comparing the real with the fakes. 

► Packaging 


REAL: The box packaging is white, the font is nude pink with gold outlines. As for the eyeshadow packaging, it's printed with a matte finish, "Nude" reflects halo when it catches direct light and the Huda Beauty logo is also embossed like the rest of her rest palettes. The font colour for the Huda logo is gold on the orignal palette.


FAKE: The box packaging is silver with a shiny halo reflet. The font is also much smaller than the original. The eyeshadow packaging is printed in a shiny finish and it also reflects halo on the whole cover, not only on the word nude. The font colour for the word "Nude" isn't nude pink like the original, it's straight up halo silver. As for the Huda logo, the font is a different colour to the original - Huda is in white and Beauty is in gold.

REAL: The original has stunning shimmers with large foil like pieces, pressed glitters, mattes and a concealer. The colour theme is centred around cool toned pinky mauves.


FAKE 1: This is the first one of the fake palettes, I would say they got the colours pretty close! It's only a little tad more vibrant. If the palette was all matte, it would be quite hard to differentiate the real from the fake. We know this one is a fake because the glitter and shimmer shades are completely off, I guess Huda's textured shadows are hard to replicate and using basic shimmers help to cut the cost down.


FAKE 2: The colours in this palette is pretty close too! It's slightly pinkier and the shimmers are more reflective than the previous palette. I think this manufacture actually did a good job. By the photo, "Concealed" doesn't seem to be a concealer and looks more like a matte shadow. 


FAKE 3: The last of fake palettes I've found and the worst replica of them all! This one doesn't have a concealer and has mustard yellow shade instead. The colours are very off from the original, the colours are more saturated and not ashy. They've used glitter for the foil like shadows and shimmers for the pressed glitter. The packaging inside of the palette has a shiny finish, whereas the original is matte.

They all have something that helps you to easily spot it's not legitimate.

Please be careful when purchasing makeup online on sites like eBay, if you are not buying from the official retailer's websites or their stockholders! If you can, always ask the seller if they still have the proof of purchase or if they could take photos of the palette inside so you can see what you're clearly getting. x
