Haul With Swatches - MUA Cosmetics

Over the past few weeks I have been spending money I don't have on lots of makeup goodies, I know I am a naughty girl but when you walk into Superdrug and they are whispering "Buy me, buy me" I couldn't say no could I?

Here's what I treated myself too:

The MUA Undressed Palette


I haven't had chance to play with this palette other than swatching but as with all MUA shadows the matte colours are not highly pigmented and a little chalky. The satin/shimmer colours make this palette worth the buy as the pigmentation in those shadows is simply amazing. For £4.00 this is a great alternative to some of the higher end brands and a great way to start a makeup kit for those just starting out. You can purchase the Undressed Palette exclusively at Superdrug or on the MUA cosmetics website.

The MUA Heaven and Earth Palette


I got this palette prior to the others so it has had quite a bit of love as you can see by the state of the palette. I absolutely adore this palette for creating a beautiful brown smoked out eye. The palette features perfect brown shades for all occasions, Its also a perfect bridal palette for those of you just starting out. Yet again the matte colours aren't fantastic but as I said before the satin/shimmer colours make the palette worth it. You can purchase the Heaven and Earth Palette exclusively at Superdrug or on the MUA cosmetics website for £4.00.

The Artiste Collection


This palette is my least favourite simply because the shades are not as pigmented as the other palettes especially in the case of the face shades. The face shades were so sheer I had to swatch them on white paper to enable them to show up for you guys. I do need to play around a bit more with this palette so, I think the jury is currently out and I may have to revisit this for a review at a later date. This palette is available on MUA's website and Superdrug stores for £6.00.

Eye Primer

 

This new product is simply amazing! I have owned an array of primers and this one really does the job as you can see just from looking at the palette images as the primer used was this one. I would go as far as saying this product is just as good as some of the higher end primers, It boosts product payoff (see above images) and shadow longevity. I will most certainly be stocking up on this product because for £2.50 you really cant go wrong. You can purchase the Eye Primer from MUA's Website or Exclusively at Superdrug.

Have you tried any of the above products? Let me know your thoughts!
