I’ve seen so many bloggers talking about this one I have to admit, it sparked my interest and I bought it. First time in ages I’ve been convinced enough by blog reviews to make a purchase and I was not disapointed!
“Made up of 12 warm and timeless shades, this palette will suit all skin tones and any occasion”
I have tried some of the old MUA palettes in the past and found them very chalky and sheer, they really seem to have improved since then! More pigment, less chalky and nicer packaging.
Every other blog I’ve read seems to be comparing this palette to Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette, since I don’t have it or intend to own it any time soon I can’t make the comparison.
- 12 shades
- 9 Pearlescent shades
- 3 matte shades: Naked, Lavish and Corrupt
While it looks like the paler colours such as Naked aren’t that pigmented they actually are, unfortunantly it’s such a close colour match to my own skin tone that it got lost in the background a bit. The only shades which were a little lacking were Lavish, Obsessed and Corroupt.
I was so impressed with the quality of these eyeshadows!
Lavish and Obsessed weren’t bad, a little lacking on the pigment side compared to the others but can easily be layered, Corrupt on the other had was entirely useless. It seems to have a thick hard shell over the surface and no mater how I rubbed at it the faint smudge you see above was the only colour I was able to get out of it.
But then agin you all know how much I adore their single eyeshadow in shade 20 (black) which is only £1, so really I don’t have any complaints over this pallet! The perfect affordable pallet for anyone starting out with makeup or anyone who just prefers neutrals.
You can buy this in Superdrug or online
