MUA Eyeshadow Palettes - Review

I purchased the MUA Heaven and Earth palette from the MUA website and got Glamour Days free for spending £4.00! I was so happy when I saw this offer as I have been wanting to buy MUA palettes for a while now!

I have used some of the eye shadows and already I think they are fantastic! The quality of them are pretty good, you get 12 eye shadows for £4.00 what an absolute steal!


Heaven and Earth - Neutral colours for a natural look.

Glamour Days - Shimmery and matte colours to add a pop of colour.

The formula of the shadows are very pigmented and soft, they give a little fall out but nothing to complain about! The staying power of the shadows are good and last for quite a while, even without using an eye primer!

The packaging isn't amazing but it looks nice enough and I'm not always bothered about the packaging on products as long as what's inside is good quality. The colours of the shadows don't have names which for me isn't too much of a big deal but I know many people like to refer eye shadows by their names etc. I am also not really a fan of the applicator that comes in the palettes and prefer to use my own eye shadow brushes instead.


Pros:
Pigmented, colours to suit many skin tones, great quality and value

Cons:
Not a fan of the applicator


What do you think of the MUA palettes? Do you have a favourite one?

  2. They are great palettes but I do wish they'd name the colours, makes it so much easier when people ask.

  4. Some of the colours are better than others. ie the brush picks them up better, the pigment is better and can be applied easier. If the colours were named or numbered it would be easier to buy them in the single bigger pots.

  9. Hey hun, thanks so much for your comment on my blog, glad you enjoyed the post :-)
    These palettes are so pretty, and ridiculously good value at that price! I thought they would be quite low pigment, low quality shadows so am excited to hear they're not!
