MUA undressed palette

MUA Undressed palette: £3

I'm not an eyeshadow person. I think I'm asked how I do my eye make-up more than any other question and my answer was always the same - Naked2 palette, or the Heaven and Earth palette. I'd heard a bit of buzz about the new Undressed palette (nicer way to word 'naked'!) and bought it in Superdrug on a whim a couple of weeks back.

As much as I do love the Naked2, and obviously the quality of the shadow is a lot nicer and easier to blend, these little cheap and cheerful palettes are amazing for three little pounds each. The shades aren't chalky - even the matte ones! - and apply easily. I don't really like that the shades don't have names, but really, how can you complain when the price is so good? I wouldn't use the applicator that's included either, but again, incredible value for money regardless. I tend to use these palettes if I'm going to work and save the Urban Decay palette for going out etc.

Basically all I do is pick a mid-neutral colour - eg. shade 3 - to wash all over the lid, then dab (technical term) a combination of shimmer or matte shades for a subtle ombre across the eye, so say shade 1 for the inner corner blended to maybe shades 4 and 8 towards the outer corners. Hope that makes sense for anyone who was wondering about my 'technique'! Like I said it's entirely unprofessional, but it works for me and people seem to like it!

Have you got any MUA palettes? A favourite by another brand? Or do you like to customise them yourself?

  7. Lovely post, gorgeous pallete! I'd stick to the urban decay as they don't test on animals but I wish I could try this one! Haha!

  13. I picked this one up & their heaven & earth palette. I like them. They do the job & are a great price. I do love my Naked palette tho. I am a total neutral eyeshadow fiend & its all i wear. So i will get a fair amount of use out of them.

  20. My original naked palette has gone missing and I don't want to splash out on another, this looks like a great affordable alternative until it turns up (hopefully!) x

  24. I had no idea these palettes were so cheap. I think i'm going to have to buy this one - I'm getting through my Naked palette at an alarming pace! x

  25. MUA is such an awesome brand! I get my eyeshadows, eyebrow pencil and even my face powder from this brand! if you cant afford to buy expensive products to wear everyday then this is a nice cheap alternative!

  26. That palette looks adorable with awesome neutral colors!

  27. you cant go wrong with this palette for the price your make up looks lovely x

  28. Nice review! I love MUA so much, they're affordable and pretty good quality...I mean, you can't complain at the price! I have the poptastic palette and the bright colours are so beautiful but recenly I've been thinking about getting the Heaven and Earth palette because I wear brown a lot on my eyes. MUA have an offer on at the moment and if you spend £8 you get their immaculate collection FREE! so, I was thinking about getting two palettes and this may be my other choice! Your make-up is absolutely lovely.

  29. ahhh i've been wondering about this pallette. as its payday i was finally going to splash out on the naked pallette (i know, super late to jump on the bandwagon), but now i've read your review i might just try this one before i splurge! thank you so much!
    oh and i know what you mean by it being really annoying that the shades dont have names! eugh! xx

  30. I absolutely swear by the Heaven and Earth palette, I've picked them up for both of my sisters now aswell so they'd stop stealing mine! I've been trying to get my hands on the Undressed palette for a while but my local superdrug is so tiny that they never have it. I think the quality of MUA makeup is phenomenal for the price, and I genuinely really like their £1 lipsticks aswell xxx

  32. The Heaven and Earth palette is my absolute favourite; I actually think the shadows are a lot better quality than many of the higher end brands I've tried. The colours are so flattering too xx
