I absolutely LOVE mua eyeshadows, They're such great quality for really cheap prices. I got this pallette for only £4 in Superdrug and (as a lover of neutral eye makeup) I've used it everyday since. There's a great range of shades, which you wouldn't expect from a neutral pallette but there are coppers, golds, shimmery whites, dark browns and even a deep mahogany tone. They have great lasting power and are super easy to blend. The only problem I have is that I don't like the packaging. It's quite messy as the shadows all fall out and mix with eachother which isn't the best. But to be honest, for £4 I can live with it :)
This must be one of the best bargains out there. All shades are shimmery, but there's a good variety of colours otherwise and pigmentation is good. You can easily do a good number of looks with this. I actually like the packaging, hasn't broken on me and I like seeing all the colours - reminds me to use this more often!
The one negative in my book, and it's a big one for me, is the fallout! With this, you must do your eyes first, then your foundation, because I for one end up with loads of shimmer all under my eyes every single time without fail, no matter what technique or brush I use. And the only way to clean shimmer is with makeup remover, end of. Since I prefer doing my base first, this fact prevents me from using this palette as often as I'd like.
I'd repurchase in a second though!
I still prefer this over my Urban Decay Naked. This offers wider range of taupes. I don't really like the gunmetal in Naked palette. And the velvet of the packaging is too dirty for me. This plastic packaging is convenient for travels. I use this palette daily and will definitely mark it as my HG - can't see myself stop using it in 50 years (and I've had quite some experience with all kinds of palettes).
Eye shadow and foundation are the two products that I refused to scrimp on. I was always so certain that you get what you pay for and so for a while, was a bit hesitant to try MUA. But when I noticed that their Heaven and Earth pallette (a supposed dupe for Urban Decay's Naked pallette) was only £4, I figured, what did I have to lose?
...OH. MY. GOD.
This product is incredible. For £4, the quality and quantity of product you get is aboslutely mind blowing. The shades are spectacular (each one has a shimmer finish, so if you're looking for matte shades then this isn't for you) and with the help of a primer, stay on all day and night. Honesty, I would put this up there glady with my Naked Pallette, and actually I've found myself reaching for my MUA one more than I have my UD. Buy this! Its £4 and its probably the best drug store buy of the year.
I got this around the same time as Bobbi Browns Ultra nude Shimmer Palette., and as much I love BB eyeshadows this blows that out of the water on my skintone. The BB one just all look the same once on and on my NC42 just look weird. Im realising that aprt from one old BB nude paltte that Ive got all the new ones are pants.
This one however is not. Ok so cons are the brish is naff and so is packaging but £4! Pros are that for a 0.8 g shadow they are 33p each! you cant go wrong. Yes they are all shimmery which is annoying and maybe one or two are quite similar but theres a good mix of light and dark. For example one has a slight khaki tone, another coppery.
The fourth one on the bottom row is the colour that I wished Satin Taupe wouldve been as on my skin ST is a bit too cool ane looks like mud.
I personally went to a UD counter to check out the Naked Palettes and for me I would even think about spending £15 on those let alone £30+ I wasnt really impressed andI know there are some colours that I wouldnt use.
I generally dont buy ready made palette as I know there will be at least one colour that I wont use but that really isnt thencase wih this one as they are all very werable shades.
Ive been to the Dior and Chanel counter numerous times to find a quad or 5 colour palette as I have so many Boots points but there is always one shade tha I think ergh why is that in there?
All in all though this is a great palette - would I buy again probably not but only because I have so much makeup ut if this broke or was lost Id be happy to repurchase especially since its on £4!
For £4 you cannot go wrong with this pallete you get 12 shades which are all very pigmented I use this everyday and I'm so happy with its affordable and are good quality eyeshadows
Creates an amazing smokey eye. The palette is very pigmented and all the colors are gorgeous.
This is such a good neutral palette. The colors are really pretty and wearable. What I dislike is that all of them are shimmery... I would like if some of them were matte too. But for £4, this is such a bargain.
Why don't more people know about this palette! I saw some really good youtube videos about it and purchased it online, its a bargain at £4! You get some beautiful nude colours, some shimmery some matte. Really impressed with the consistency, easy to blend and really lovely wearable colours. You could create so many different looks with this palette from a subtle every day work look to a dramatic evening smokey eye. Wish I found out about this palette sooner, I've told everyone about it! Its similar to the UD Naked palette but of course its not as good, but for a fraction of the price very very happy with this purchase.
i have literally made myself wear only this palette for ages every day to test every colour properly. i already have my staple outer and inner corner colours that i use every day, but for my lid i switch up colours a whole lot. and that's where this palette comes in. i use this palette on my lids. sometimes i use the more medium colours solo on the lid, or sometimes i will mix a lot of them up to create a more multidimensional look. they are all usable lid colours for me and are all quite beautiful.
which brings me on to pigmentation. it's wonderful! they are all such wearable, shimmering colours in the gold and brown family but in different tones. so there is plum, copper, sand, orange, chocolate etc. and of course highlight colours. there is a BIG selection of neutrals to satisfy different moods for each day.
i really recommend this palette! excellent value for money.
cons are: there is no truly matte dark colour, my particular palette is a PAIN to open (lol), and i also noticed that when i see these palettes in the shop some of the unopened ones have shattered colours in them so i wouldn't travel with this, or if i were to i would wrap it in a towel or something cushy.
would buy again!
