Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette Rose Gold Replica: Hit Or Miss?

I've been thinking about doing blog posts on fake makeup vs the real thing, and I thought it would be a great start to do it on this eyeshadow palette.The real palette has recently been stocked over here in the UK, and although I was expecting it to be expensive, their was no way that I thought it would be retailed at £56.I'm able purchase the real thing, because I've been saving up for such a long time, but I just didn't feel it was worth that price tag at all, so I went online to find a replica that I can review for those who maybe can't afford it or are not fussed with having a fake palette.This replica is retailed at £7.00 with a choice of free shipping (20-40days) or EMS(7-15days) for £10 that got here in 8working days.

Firstly, it was an absolute pain taking it out of the case. I spent 10-15minutes trying to push and slide it out, hoping that I wasn't going to damage it.During that time of being frustrated, I noticed that the eyes on the case were fairly pixelated and wasn't as gold on the eyeshadow as it should of been.Eventually I was able to get it out of the case with little damage to the sides, and immediately looking at the colours, you can see how completely off they are.Normally when shopping for a replica, the website shows the fake alongside the genuine one so you can compare them, and the seller that I purchased from gave the impression that it was pretty much very close to the real thing, which you can see it clearly isn't at all.
The spellings on this palette are laughable, and the one that got me howling was "MANE ATER" instead of Maneater.If you're going to make a replica of something, at least try to make the spellings accurate.Next, I'm going to show you the swatches and again, it is pretty laughable.Some of the colours didn't even swatch onto me, so you'll see a gap on my arm or you can just faintly see it showing up.I honestly thought it was because of my skin tone at first, but after having a look at the genuine swatches online, these shades show on my skin tone and for those that are darker than me too.
(Left To Right: Dubai, Fling, 24K, Rose Gold, Trust Fund & Angeuc)
(Left To Right: Blessed, Bossy, Flamingo, Shy, Bae & Moon Dust)
(Left To Right: Black Truffle, Suede, Coco, Mane Ater, Henna & Sandalwood)
The only colours that I liked were Dubai, Rose Gold, and Blessed, everything else just sucked at pigmentation.Suede is pretty hilarious as I must of swatched it at least 5times and it didn't show up on me at all.It also smells absolutely terrible, like I know eyeshadows aren't meant to have much of a scent or if they do its not too much, but these smell so bad, I was seriously questioning what on earth did they use to make these because I do not feel comfortable putting them near my eyes, let alone my skin.Overall, this "eyeshadow" palette absolutely sucks and it really is not worth the £7 price tag for it at all.You're better off purchasing the real thing, even if that means waiting for £56 price tag to drop, or go for another brand like Makeup Revolution who do amazing makeup  but is also cheap as well.I haven't found a brand that is even close to the majority of these shades on the real palette, so it maybe worth investing in it.Let me know if they're any brand that you'd like me to review, whether you want it to be a replica post or maybe its something you've seen that you'd like me to review, please let me know in the comment section or via my instagram :)
