I’ve been after a neutral eye shadow palette for a while but since I only sweeping on the powdery stuff when heading on a night out I had a lower end budget in mind. Although I will admit after seeing a handful of reviews I was sold and very close to buying the Urban Decay Naked Palette that is priced around £36. But then my usage wouldn’t cover the cost and knowing that a lot of lower priced makeup brands have the same manufacturer and ingredients as higher end ones I went on a hunt for a palette with similar tones to the dreamy Naked one.
This is when the £4 twelve shadow palette from Superdrug’s own brand ‘MUA’ (Makeup Academy) caught my eye. The colours are that of warm fleshy tones with a couple leaving a pearl finish that is great for highlighting. The liking to the Naked 12 palette is uncanny. For £4 I didn’t hesitate in snapping this beauty bargain up and the rich pigment is unbelievable for the price not to mention how it doesn’t rub away easily.
I wore ‘Naked’ as my base, ‘Tranquil’ over the socket, ‘Lavish’ on the outer half of my lid/ in my crease and then ‘Reveal’ in my tear duct and dotted in the centre of the eye lid. I’d highly recommend Makeup Academy eye shadows as they’re ridiculously cheap for the quality so much so I’ll be purchasing the MUA Pro Immaculate Collection providing you with 24 highly pigmented colours for just £8!
