MUA Matte Palette [Review]

Dear readers,

I hope you're all having an enjoyable Sunday! I am spending mine lazying in bed watching Vampire Diaries [and yes, I am totally hooked!], then tonight I'm off to to watch a play.

Back when I was in the UK about a month or so ago now I got the Ever After Matte Palette by MUA [Make Up Academy] because I really wanted to try it out after I read some reviews about it [and I prefer using mattes rather than frosty or shimmery eyeshadows for Autumn]

I got this for £4 from Superdrug but you can get yours from the MUA website *here*

The palette comes in MUA's standard black plastic packaging with a transparent lid. Unlike some of their other palettes, the eyeshadow pans in this one are square (rather than round) and so hold more product.

You get a rather extensive choice of matte shades - from the lightest ivory u the darkest brown colour. I do think that some of the lightest shades look very similar to each other though.

Like the rest of the matte colours from MUA's other palettes, these are not that greatly pigmented - some of them require more than one swipe to achieve good colour payoff.

Having said that, I use this palette in combination with UD's Naked Basics because I love the darkest brown shades in MUA's palette. 

They do blend quite well although I wished they would have been a tad more creamier. 

Still, you can use this palette for a different number of looks - from daylight to a smokier one.

I do believe that this palette is quite a steal at £4 and would definitely recommend it to those persons who would love to try out a couple of matte eye shadows without breaking the bank (especially students etc)
