If you’re one of the many fans of Huda Beauty’s Rose Gold eyeshadow palette, you should know that the brand just dropped a new palette that’s garnering as much, if not more, attention than the Rose Gold. The Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette ($65) should be on your radar if it isn’t already. In fact, it should be more than on your radar–it should be in your shopping cart, because it just dropped last week!

And here’s why you need it: the Dubai-inspired palette has so many rich, beautiful jewel-tone shades that will carry you from fall to winter. It’s an instant classic. Here are the swoon-worthy swatches, and everything you need to know about the palette:

Are you dead over the Cosmo glitter?! I mean… The palette comes with 18 new shades for the brand (the aforementioned glitter plus 8 creamy mattes, 6 shimmering pearl shades, and 3 duo-chrome toppers). The palette is inspired by the, “vivid shades and striking landscape” of Dubai. Cue “Arabian Nights” and Sex and the City 2.

The Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette ($65) launched on on 9/18 and hit Sephora next month (save the date: 10/13). Here’s another shot of the palette–as you can see, it has some beautiful reds, purples and oranges to create really exotic-feeling eye looks:

The results from swatching were that the Desert Sand is a great primer or base shade, the Musk is great for a crease–and you can use just two those colors plus the Oud to fake a naked palette. But this is not a palette to buy if you want a naked look all the time! It wouldn’t be living up to it’s fullest potential–this is a palette for beauty buffs. The shimmering shades are gorgeous. Some bloggers mentioned that their Cosmo glitter shade came damaged–what we experienced was that it broke easily. But who cares! It still looks perfect on eyes. Additionally, you will get some fallout using these shadows–so it’s a good idea to follow the rules and apply your shadow *first* with this kit so you can clean up any fallout undereyes after using the palette.

As a bonus, Huda also created a Snapchat lens that uses augmented reality to let users experiment with three of Huda’s favorite looks from the palette in real time. She’s offering one lucky winner a trip for 2 to Duabi for 4 nights staying in 5 star hotel, a makeover with Huda herself and the entire Huda Beauty collection. OMG!! And 100 runner ups will be chosen at random to be one of the first to receive a Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette. How could you say No to that, Snapchat peeps?
