REVIEW: MUA UNDRESS ME TOO PALETTE







A rich selection of golden hues and dusky brown eyeshadows? I hope I'm not the only one who thinks this sounds like any beauty-fanatics dream. Personally, I'm a massive fan of neutral palettes. They're ideal for creating an alluring smokey eye that's perfect for both the daytime and evening wear. Constantly on the hunt for a new one to add to my collection, and trust me when I say I have a massive collection, I recently bought MUA's Undress Me Too Palette. Following the pleasantries of my previous MUA experience, I was skeptical on whether this palette would live up to it's reputation. But, believe me it did! 

Once again MUA have amazed me by offering a quality array of shadows for a bargain price. Within the palette there's a mix of metallic and mattes, once again highlighting the brands passion for both extravagant and subdued looks. Personal favourites of mine include 'Lavish', a rosy brown that can be used as a base on your lids or a fill-in for your eyebrows, and the slightly bolder 'Corrupt'. After all, every girl needs a brash shadow to create that alluring Megan Fox smoggy eye, right?

The application of the shadow is extremely smooth. I don't use the eyeshadow bud that was included in the kit as I prefer to use brushes, but the colours are extremely pigmented and almost identical to the hues in the case. 

As for longevity, I face fairly few problems with the shadows. Pardon the pun. Both darker and lighter hues stay on my lids all day, which is ideal for a girl who hates mid-day touch ups! For a muted look, a primer isn't needed. However if you plan on creating a more daring look with metallics I would recommend using a primer just to emphasise the lighter colours and keep the shimmer intact.

I'm not a massive fan of drug store products and in recent years I've tended to opt for slightly more expensive brands like Urban Decay and MAC. This is probably one of the many reasons as to why I'm surprised that I'm ogling over the MUA range and preaching to everyone, yes everyone, about how good it actually is! In a society where we assume the price tag works in correlation to the quality of the good, for MUA it's the complete opposite. A cheap product that has a luxe quality? Personally, I couldn't ask for anything more. Let me know if you've tried out any MUA products in the comments below.

  5. I love this palette too. I hear the colours are meant to be a good match for Urban Decay's Naked 2. I wonder if they'll try and do a dupe for Naked 3?

  7. If youre still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then youll know which is right for you.

  12. Love that comment on price correlating with quality....definitely not always the case! I've paid for high end products and then still returned to the cheaper high street stuff in the end! Long live MUA!

  15. I love the little rating system at the top, so handy. I'm a huge fan of the naked 2 palette which this is obviously a dupe of and I think once I've used this up (hopefully that's a long way off), I'll be purchasing this as it is just so much cheaper and seems to be such a good quality :)
