There’s almost nothing more heartbreaking in the beauty world than when one of your favorite products gets discontinued or its formula is changed beyond recognition, but that’s exactly what happened to fans of Huda Beauty when the popular Rose Gold Palette was discontinued last year. It all started with an Instagram post from Huda Kattan herself stating that fans should purchase the palette while they could, as it might be their last chance to own it. The palette was shelved shortly after in October 2017, followed by the launch of the gorgeous Desert Dusk Palette, but fans still missed the original Rose Gold Palette. Well, good news — it’s coming back.

The Huda Beauty Instagram account posted two back-to-back posts about the upcoming launch with a ton of information about the decision to bring back the popular palette. The caption for the first post explains in detail why the first palette was discontinued, saying, “Everyone who knows me, knows how important our original Rose Gold Palette was to us, but when we launched it, we really had to invest everything into the Palette and couldn’t invest in things like packaging & innovation! That year 2016, I actually couldn’t afford to pay myself salary, because this Palette was such a huge project for us!” It seems like Kattan put the brand ahead of her own needs in an effort to put the highest quality products into the marketplace.
The caption continues, “Fast forward to 2018 and we wanted to reintroduce our Rose Gold Palette, with completely new and never seen before formulas, listening to everything you guys wanted! From SUPER intense mattes & incredibly creamy pigmented foils, we are sooo excited to reveal to you our Rose Gold ReMastered Palette.”
Indeed, the new palette does look gorgeous and recalls the original. It certainly looks like it could be an improvement from the packaging to the formula of the shadows. If you’re a fan of the original and want to try the remastered version, or missed out on your chance to grab it the first time around, the new Rose Gold Palette will be available May 22.
