How would you feel about going on an adventure through outer space with Huda Beauty? Exciting, right? With the new Mercury Retrograde palette you can do just that.

The space-themed palette features eighteen out-of-this-world shades to help you create endless combinations no matter the occasion. Night out? Glitter. Office day? Glitter. Day at the beach? Yep you guessed it – glitter. OK so we might be head over heels for glitter but that’s not all this palette has to offer. A carefully crafted combination of metallics, mattes, multi-reflective shadows and a fall-out proof glitter powder, there’s literally nothing you can’t do with Huda Beauty’s latest creation.

Inspired by Huda’s love of crystals and their reflective, iridescent coating, she aimed to design a palette that gives your eyes the same mesmerising effect. Why call it Mercury Retrograde? Huda and her team faced many obstacles during the creative process and wondered what on earth (or beyond) was going on. As it turns out, it was right in the middle of Mercury Retrograde, and so the palette pretty much named itself. Now that’s a cool story to tell the grandkids.

While you’re at it why not grab the limited-edition brush set, which features three essential dual-ended eyeshadow brushes and comes in a space-themed holographic make-up bag.

  • Mercury Retrograde, Dhs278, and the limited-edition brush set, Dhs175, are available now on and will be available in all major beauty retailers on October 31.
