mua:: undressed review

Tuesday, 19 February 2013


of the undressed palette from mua, shades 2, 4 and 10 are my faves. shade 2 is an easy shade to wear every day for a natural highlight to your lids, and looks naturally smoky when blended with 10 around the corners and into the crease. shade 4 is a touch darker, so a little more dramatic for an everyday look, but again looks gorgeous when matched with a more solid shade around the creases. i also tried shades 5 and 8 because they seemed reaaaaally golden in the palette, but once applied were not as vampy.. which was a good thing, because i was worried it would come out like 90's glitter. which it didn't. why don't the shades just have names? confusing.
top is shade 5 on the lid and 8 in the creases with an extreme wing.
bottom is shade 2 and 10 with a less exaggerated wing
i prefer the top wing but the bottom colours...
the shades are really lightweight but long-wearing, and the pigments are really easily blended without losing their own individuality. for £4 i wasn't expecting very much - but have really been surprised. i teamed these shades with my extreme felt liner that i reviewed here last year and wasn't best pleased with; this time around, i feel like maybe i was too harsh. the liner is incredibly easy to use, and the felt tip is longer than the c2000 that i'm used to, so i get a longer, more precise line. the colour is still not the darkest or thickest it could be, but for a day time look, it's probably purrrfect. which do you prefer?

*the lighting was terrible, so very hard to show the true colour - the swatches are closer to accurate

  1. This is exactly the kind of eye shadow palette I need! I prefer wearing natural or golden tones of eye shadow to colours or a smokey eye. Your wings are so pro! I suck at wings haha

    1. i used to really love face of australia for natural tones - i'm quite pink naturally so i need to keep the tones warm and not cool... mua is a great, cheap, chemist-brand that make really decent stuff! happy days!

  2. The Undressed too pallette has shade names I believe! I'm torn between which I should get, but I suppose £4 each I could probably get both ;)
    Your eyeliner is amazing! Xo

  5. I've been needing a good nude make up palette. All the ones I end up buying aren't pigmented enough but this one looks really nice.

  7. Lushy McLush! I really need this palette. I hardly have any nude shades but want to try and experiment more- this looks perfect. I usually just have my eyeliner wings each day (exactly the same as your 'extreme'... gulp!) but sometimes I want more pizaaaaazz! I've never tried MUA, this has convinced me xx
