Review: MUA Heaven and Earth palette!

Ever since MUA was first released I have been in love! If you are unaware of the brand, they are stocked in Superdrug and all items of the main range are only £1. They also have a "professional" range which includes eyes, face and nail products, the most expensive product being only £4! At first I was skeptical about how good the quality would be, cheaper drugstore products tend to have tacky looking packaging and are often not great quality, however after trying the lipsticks and eye shadows I am love! The eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented and are beautiful while the lipsticks are very moisturizing, not at all drying and come in a range of stunning shades.



I decided to purchase the "Heaven and Earth" palette last year and since then it has been a stable in my makeup collection. I always reach for it, I use neutral shades a lot more than bright ones so this palette it absolutely PERFECT!

A lot of people have compared this to the Urban Decay Naked Palette which I still haven't bought! If you cannot afford the Naked palette I would one hundred percent recommend this instead! This palette costs only £4 which I think is great value for money as you are paying around 33p for each eye shadow. As I said this palette is great for me as I use neutral colours everyday but for the more adventurous there are a number of other palettes with brighter colours.

As you can see from the swatches, the shadows have amazing pigmentation, I was blown away with the eye shadows, I did not expect them to be as good as they are, with only one swipe! They have great staying power on my eyes and the colours are beautiful! The only thing I think they could have improved on would be to include more matte shades, but that's only me being fussy! Another down side is that it is only available in the UK! This sucks as I really think everyone should have the chance to try this palette! They recently released a new palette called "undressed" which I am dying to try!



Have you tried any MUA products?
