PS… Amber Passion Eyeshadow Palette | A £3 Huda Beauty Dupe

I’m a huge fan of the Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation (despite its rather unusual fragrance) and have been lusting over the pricey but beautiful remastered Rose Gold palette ever since it’s rerelease. Recently, I was lucky enough to win the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette on Twitter and I’ll have a full review up soon. Until then, I thought I’d share with you this remarkably similar eyeshadow palette from Primark which is an absolute bargain at only £3. I use the term ‘dupe’ very lightly here as, let’s be honest, this product is really just a knock-off…

The PS… Amber Passion Palette contains nine eyeshadows and is clearly a rip-off of the Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Palette. I came across it whilst searching for the Fenty Beauty highlighter dupes used in the latest SophDoesNails video. This is the best palette from Primark I’ve tried so far. Yes, the mattes are incredibly crumbly, there’s a tone of fallout and the shimmers perform better when applied with a wet brush, but I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth and easy to blend they are. They require a bit of building but the champagne shimmer is absolutely beautiful, I’ve even used it as a highlighter a few times when my favourite has been out of reach. The colour payoff of the fiery orange shade, although not personally my cup of tea, is seriously impressive too. There’s not a single let down in the palette although they do fade a little throughout the day so I suggest using a primer. My all-time favourite being the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion.

Sorry for my rubbish swatches, I didn’t want to play about with the brightness or contrast so you have an accurate representation of what you will be getting. The travel-friendly palette comes with a plastic wrapper with all the shades names on and contains four mattes and five shimmers. I did see a smokey version of this palette on sale too but unfortunately, it was shattered beyond repair.
What’s your opinion about brands such as Revolution and Primark ‘recreating’ high-end makeup products? Is it a good thing that companies are making makeup more accessible to those on a smaller budget or are they ultimately damaging to the beauty industry?
