This palette was a gift from my gorgeous girl Zoe. It’s a new palette from MUA, a brand which is found in Superdrug.
In all honesty, I don’t often wear eye shadow. I wish I could but I always think I look a bit over done. Recently, I’ve been experimenting a bit more, I only ever really wear natural shades but I want to use some of the brighter colours in this palette as eyeliners by using them wet.
I’ve found my most favourite eyeshadow in this palette, which is surprising as I own the Urban Decay Naked palette, the Too Faced Natural Eye palette, and several Smashbox ones which all retail over £20, and yet my all time favourite eye shadows comes from a palette which costs £8 from Superdrug!
The shadow in question is the lovely pinky beige shimmery eye shadow above the white one. It’s not very out there, as you can see from the bottom picture of me wearing it, it just gives a subtle shimmer to the lids which really brings out my eyes.
I usually use the white eye shadow as a highlighter around the corners of my eyes.
I’m looking forward to playing around with this palette a bit more, especially the bronze shades and more of the natural colours. I think it’s one of those palettes which will really come in useful for travelling and just having to hand as it will most likely contain a few “go to” shades for everyone.
In terms of quality, I think you get more than what you pay for. I think the quality is great, I haven’t experienced any fall out – and although it did crease, I didn’t have primer on. I’d say it’s definitely worth more than it’s £8!
Next on my list is the MUA Heaven and Earth palette, I’ve been after this for so long!
