MUA Undress Me Too Eye Palette [First Impression | Review]

Dear readers,

The Undress Me Too Palette is a palette that, in my opinion, everyone was expecting to be released, since it is a total dupe for Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette (and the original Undressed palette was a dupe for Naked by UD).

Now I am wondering whether MUA will  launch a set of basic eye shadows, following the footsteps of Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette.

The Undress Me Too palette comes in a sleek, white palette with a transparent, hinged lid - in my opinion the white packaging makes it looks cleaner and more professional looking - I am loving it!

You get 12, round pan eyeshadows ranging from matte and light to shimmery/frosty and dark: which makes it perfect both for day time use and night time. You also get a double sided sponge applicator.

Unlike the Undressed palette, MUA have now named all the eyeshadows featuring in this palette.

What I really like about MUA palettes is their shape: they are so travel friendly and you can just pack one palette and still manage to transform your look from day to night.

All the eye shadows have good pigmentation, except the matte shades: Naked and Lavish don't really show up, and Corrupt (the black shadow) also lacks quite a bit in the pigmentation department. They are also slightly powdery. That said, they are still usuable, but you must build the colour up and you must use a good eye primer to make them stand out more (especially the really pale ladies out there).

I have had no problems with staying power: these have lasted more than 8 hours on me (albeit with a primer).

I am totally loving this palette, and it is a must for eye shadow lovers (especially since it is so affordable!).

You can get the Undress Me Too palette on the MUA website for £4.00
