MUA Eyeshadow Palettes

MUA is an incredibly affordable makeup brand with many of their individual products retailing at £1! 
I've been using two of the eyeshadow palettes from the range and not only are they incredible value, but they are surprisingly fantastic. Both palettes contain 12 versatile shadows for creating an abundance of looks, one of the palettes is called ‘Dusk Til Dawn’ which is a collection of warm and smoky shimmering shadows perfect for creating evening looks, and the other is ‘Pop Tastic’ which is full of bright and daring shades to create unique and colourful looks. Both palettes have such a great range of colours available at such a good price point, making each shadow very affordable.




MUA 'Pop Tastic' Palette


The packaging is really simple but for products as affordable as these, it is what’s on the inside that counts! 
The formulation of the shadows is excellent, as you can see from the pictures it has a finely milled texture therefore the colour pay off is great and the intensity of the shades remains the same as it appears in its packaging. All of the shadows have a shimmer finish which is a finish and in the Dusk Til Dawn palette, several of the shades are shot through with a really fine glitter, great for creating eye-catching party looks. The appearance of the glitter in the palette corresponds perfectly on to the eyelid and stays there for the wearing duration.

Due to their soft texture, the shadows are good to blend and work with, however I did find that they create quite a lot of fallout so watch out for that. The staying power is great, with little creasing or movement. During the festive season, I’ve been using colours from the Dusk Til Dawn palette but the Pop Tastic palette will be great for the gloomy months approaching!




MUA 'Dusk Til Dawn' Palette


At £4.50 each they are definitely worth trying out, and even if you think you will only wear a few of the colours in the palette, I am sure there will be a couple of colours in there for everyone, and at that selling price it is hard to resist! You can find these and the whole MUA range at Superdrug

  2. I love MUA - its the best value make up. I first discovered it after buying it for my 13 year old sister and realised that it was just cheap make up but great quality, not what I expected for the price at all!

  5. I've been to London about a week ago and been to probably every superdrug between the two Westfields - and that Dusk til Dawn palette was not to be found!
    Quite frustrating as it had been on my list for a while.
    Going to pat my Sleek Jewels now. Hmph!

    But! I got the beloved Heaven & Earth palette and a few more MUA products for a giveaway at Christmas and people here loved it :D
    I wish drugstore brands here had these kinds of products, le sigh!

  22. MUA are ace. As others have said, definitely up there with Sleek on the colour and value for money front. I would also strongly recommend their eyepencils. For £1 I got a bright orange pencil (which I prefer to use as a lip pencil all over for the perfect true vermillion lip colour), with a sharpener in the lid. Just shows you don't have to spend loads for high-pigment, good quality makeup.

    To be honest, with brands like Illamasqua and Bobbi Brown taking care of the smart end of the spectrum and and cheap-but-inspiring brands like Sleek, MUA and Boots' Natural Collection (who surprise me every time - amazing blusher and stick concealers!) filling in everywhere else, the middle-priced companies like L'Oreal rarely get a look in for me.
