I own the Naked palette, a variety of MUA palettes & far too many single neutral shadows to count.. But of course there's always room for extra neutral shadows in my collection! Especially when the palette contains 4 mattes shadows & 4 shimmers.
You can see that the matte & shimmer shades have a light shade, two mid-tones & a darker shade.
The colours are pretty & basically, all you want in a palette this size. Also, it's the perfect size to pop in your bag for touch ups! But how did the shadows actually fare?
I won't lie, I was a little bit disappointed. Even though we all need some matte shadows, I am a shimmery girl. So the lack of pigmentation in these mattes just re-affirmed my love for shimmers. The palest two mattes don't show up very well, though they do work as base colours, with a primer. The third shade applies better, but the darkest one is actually much better than the others - It's brilliant in the crease! The shimmers are all lovely. The palest one can be a little patchy, but it's brilliant as a highlight. The next three are perfect, especially that yellow gold, second from left.
The shadows are nice & soft, so can be picked up easily but.. Beware. My friend borrowed mine, dug her finger into one, & crushed it. I'm awfully sad.. But don't let that put you off.
I don't think this'll be replacing my Urban Decay palettes, but it's perfect to bring in my bag, & I brought it home in my travel bag this weekend because honestly, blush, bronzer, highlighter AND eight shadows in this little thing? It's amazing.
What do you think of the shadows?
