Review: MUA Undressed Palette!

Hello gorgeous! Today I'm reviewing the MUA Undressed Palette, one of the most talked about drugstore palettes of the year, since it is considered a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette.


For starters, let me just say it, dupe or no dupe, this palette has definitely become one of my favorites after only a few weeks of my purchase. It's got some nice neutrals, ranging from a few mattes to shimmers to shades with tiny glitters! I don't believe there's a single shade in this palette you could possibly not use. I love how this can be an everyday palette, transitioned into night time and even apt for heavier party looks or super smokey eyes.



The packaging is nice and sturdy for the 4 pounds worth of money I've really seen worse packaging for a higher price in drugstore makeup. It's a bit of a hassle to open the palette the very first few times but that's only initial. The back includes a shade guide and also a mini master class step by step for beginners which makes this all the more a great product!


The eyeshadows themselves are super soft and not completely chalky, but compared to MUA's single eyeshadows, I do have to say the mattes will not knock anyones socks off. The single mattes are much better in terms of application and pigmentation. However, the mattes in this palette aren't bad at all. I find that swatching them is a problem as they're 1. a bit harder to pick up with a finger, and 2. so similar to my skintone. However on the eyes, I cannot complain about these mattes at all!

The shimmery satin shades are to say the least AWESOME! I simply love these and for the price, I don't know, you get 12 decent sized amount of pigmented eyeshadows! Who can complain? And if this really is a dupe for the much sought after Urban Decay Naked Palette, then you're saving yourself more than $40!


Though at a glance you might think, oh what boring neutrals! yes, some shades look an awful lot similar at a first glance but this is a very versatile palette and the looks you can create are endless!
My personal favourite shades from the Undressed palette are Shades 1, 3, 6 and 12! To see my recent EOTD using this palette, click here!


Swatches!


LOVES:
- Pigmented, soft shadows.
- Priced so so reasonably!
- Great for beginners!
- No repetition of shades though it may seem like it.
- Lasts well on the eyes, obviously even better with a primer/base.

DISLIKES:
- Honestly I want to say none but some people complain about the mattes, although I find them to be good!
- Availability! MUA do ship worldwide though!

My Rating:
5/5: Makes me feel like a diva!
