Out of the three Huda Neon palettes, Orange definitely performed the best imo. I wasn’t planning on duping this one but since I was doing the other two and I’m an overachiever… here we are. Check out my Neon Green palette dupes if you haven’t already seen them!
▪️1 vs ColourPop Tiki ($4.50, -10% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 1 is a bright yellow matte with orange undertones. Tiki is more muted.
Option 2: ColourPop Take Flight is less orange
▪️2 vs Touch of Glam Orange Emperor ($7.50, -15% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- Touch of Glam has this set of pressed pigments in rainbow shades. The collection is called the Vivids and they’re the perfect dupes for the shimmers in these Huda palettes. The texture and finishes are almost exactly the same but I actual like TOG’s formula better. 2 is a glittery light orange with yellow undertones. Orange Emperor is a tiny bit darker
Other alternatives: ColourPop Bubble Bee and ColourPop Chauffer are both very similar in color but they’re smoother and less sparkly
▪️️3 vs ColourPop Hop On ($4.50, -10% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- these two are bright orange based reds with matte finishes. Hop On is a little more muted. ColourPop Oh Ship would be an equally good alternative. It’s just a little more red
▪️4 vs Touch of Glam Maneater ($7.50, -15% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 4 is a bright peachy pink with a glitter finish. Maneater is another one of those Vivid shadows with the identical formula but it’s more orange.
Other Options: TOG Future in Fuchsia is darker and more cool toned. Also I think that it might be a dupe for one of the shades in the pink palette.
Sydney Grace Golden Peach is warmer and less sparkly.
▪️5 vs Devinah Anastasia ($5, -20% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 5 is a light orange with strong yellow undertones and a matte finish. Anastasia is more yellow
Other options: Clionadh Gourd is more orange. Makeup Geek Chickadee is darker
▪️6 vs Morphe Orchid ($2.50)- 6 is a bright magenta matte and believe it or not it was the shade that gave me the most trouble. CP has like 20 neon pinks. I thought for sure that they would have a dupe. But no. Just when I thought that all hope was lost, I remembered a palette of ancient Morphe singles from back when I still bought products that Jaclyn Hill recommended. It’s not a brand that I use anymore but Orchid is a perfect color match. Much closer than anything else in my collection
Other options: Suva Beauty Sangria Sundays is lighter and more purple
ColourPop Fair Play is darker and more red
ColourPop Sandbar is lighter and brighter
▪️7 vs ColourPop Best Coast Scenario ($4.50, -10% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- both are bright coral orange mattes. Best Coast Scenario might be a little more muted but they look pretty close to me
Other Options: ColourPop Wait for It is darker and more muted. ColourPop Centerfold is more pink.
▪️8 vs ColourPop For Shore ($4.50, -10% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 8 is a neon pink with red undertones. For Shore is more red
Option 2: ColourPop Poodle is more muted and darker
▪️9 vs Touch of Glam Cleopatra’s Crown ($7.50, -15% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- these are two are bright lemon yellows with tons of glitter. In my eyes they’re identical
Option 2: Sydney Grace Lemonade is very similar in color but not as glittery
Tada! We’ve reached the end. I do like the Neon Orange palette, so I would recommend it if you don’t already own similar shades. If you’re mostly interested in the shimmers then you should definitely those shadows from Touch of Glam. There’s a bundle option with all ten shades for $60 ($51 w/ the code). Two palettes down, one more to go! I’ll work on dupes for the Neon Pink palette this week…
