MUA 'Undressed' Palette - Review

Hello dears! There's nothing I love more than affordable, yet fantastic beauty products - MUA (Makeup Academy) are an affordable makeup brand from the UK, sold in Superdrug and online. Their known for their amazing eyeshadow palettes, priced at an amazing £4 each. I was sent their newest palette 'Undressed' to review, and I have to say I love it! I've been using it for weeks now, and I find myself reaching for it just as much, if not more, than my more expensive palettes.
The Undressed palette has been compared to the Naked palettes from Urban Decay, and it definitely is a brilliant cheaper alternative to buy if you want similar shades. The shadows themselves have a really gorgeous texture; their creamy and soft. The colour pay-off is great, and you can easily wet the shadows to make an even stronger impact on the skin. There's minimal fall-out when applied properly, and they're very easy to blend. The light pinks in the palette are my favourites; they're gorgeous for highlighting and putting all over the lid to brighten the eyes (you can also use them as a facial highlight, on top of the cheekbones). You have all of the essentials colours you need in the Undressed palette, for nude eyes and smokey eyes alike. The shadows last all day, if worn with a primer like most eyeshadows. I was genuinely shocked at how fantastic the quality of the palette is, priced at £4. It's an absolute bargain, and is a great palette to get if you're only starting out in makeup.

  1. omg it looks so pigmented in the swatches! and only 4 pounds this is amazing!!! :)

  2. I wish the third shade from the first layer is as pigmented as yours, I think it really blends into my skin that there's hardly any pigment shows up.

  3. Really want to try this! Is MUA sold in Ireland?

    I've always wanted to try their one pound lipsticks, the reviews sound okay. But for a pound it seems sketchy, but then again for that cheap, why not try right?
