I've never tried an MUA palette before a few weeks ago. After all the hype about them I wanted to know what was so special. And I wasn't disappointed. MUA Eyeshadow Palettes come in a range of colours, from metallic shades to more vibrant - Whoever you are there's one for you. The palette I will be sharing with you today is one of their natural ones, Heaven and Earth. On a day to day basis I wear so many neutral eyeshadows, and this palette really delivered. Also, I'm trying this post out with my new Nokia Lumia instead of my SLR as I travel a lot, so let me know what you think about the photos.
As you can see from first glance that these babies are pigmented. These two photos are from the top line of the shadows, one inside where the sun isn't as bright, and one outside to show you how gorgeous these shades are. The first one works so well as a highlighter, but can still be worn as a shadow as it's easily built up to create a gorgeous metallic cream. The second and third ones are very similar in the fact that they're both bronze. However the first one has plenty of red tones, and the third one as golden tones. The forth one is probably the most nude of the colours. It's such a pretty light beige metallic which is so pretty and looks so delicate. Again this is very buldable. The fifth one in the picture is extremely pigmented, and I believe that most pigmented of them all. I love this for an all over bold colour, or adding a bit more depth to the eyes as a crease shade. The colour also to me seems to have slight red tones to it. The final colour in this row is stunning. It reminds me of the sun! It's a very bright gold that catches some gorgeous colour in the light. I absolutely adore this shade. All of the shades in this palette are so buttery and all work so well together.
The first two on the second row aren't as metallic as the rest of the colours. They seem to give more of a sheeny shimmer instead. These two are very similar to the second and third on the first row in respect that they're very similar colours. The first one has a redder tone, and the second shade has more of a golden tone. The third colour on this second row is my favourite. It's stunning. I'm a huge lover of Sellout by Urban Decay, and this is pretty much the exact colour. I couldn't be more excited!!! I love using this all over my lids and then a light brown in the crease. I could not be happier! The colour is also a dream to apply and is so buttery. The forth one of this row is a taupe colour. I'm not huge on taupe but there's nothing even close to this colour in the palette. I can't wait to experiment with that colour. The fifth one is very similar to the fifth on on the top row, only this one is slightly lighter and has gold tones instead of red. This applies lovely and gives amazing colour payoff. The last one in the palette is a classic dark metallic brown. This is exactly how you'd expect a dark brown to be.
Overall I am in love with this palette. It has a huge range of colours to create nude eyes, smokey eyes, natural eyes and all the looks in between. I will be showing you some looks very soon! I can't to give this a go and I reckon this will be my to go to palette for naturals. At an amazing £4 you can really afford a star buy like this. All MUA products are just such good value with amazing quality just like high street brands and even some more high end products.
