So, after many tweets, particularly with the gorgeous and lovely Karla Powell, I decided it was about time that I purchased a MUA Cosmetics palette to try. So, I popped into Superdrug and bout the new MUA Immaculate Collection Palette, as recommended by Karla herself. It’s a great varied palette, lots of useful colours, I’m yet to try them all, but thought I would share with you the looks I’ve worn this week using this palette.
If you’re interested in a full review & swatches, let me know and I’ll see what I can whip up.
Here’s what the palette looks like…
So day one, I thought I would experiment with pink eyeshadow, as it’s not something I’ve worn for a long time! I toned it down with the fantastic matte grey in this palette, the other shades I used were shimmery, I used a matte purple as a definer. No primer and applied dry with brushes from Japonesque and Youngblood.
Day two, I matched my eye shadows to my outfit and went for a few shades of green blended with this gorgeous metallic gold. No primer and using brushes from Youngblood and Japonesque.
And the third day I was wearing blue and red, so thought I’d play with blue eye shadow, which I’ve avoided for years due to memories of dance school schools involving orange foundation and thick blue eye shadow. The colours in the MUA Immaculate palette are very soft and subtle, so it works well.
So far, really pleased with this palette, it’s great value at Â£8 and has a great range of useful and fun colours. The onlyÂ criticismÂ is that the colours aren’t the most pigmented, but I don’t really care because you get what you pay for right? I also think that the performance could be enhanced with the use of a primer. But, for everyday needs, this is a great bargainous option, ideal for experimenting and providing colour that lasts during office hours.
What MUA products should I try next?
