MUA: Heaven and Earth eyeshadow palette: A Review & Swatches

MUA: Heaven and Earth : Eye shadow palette
MUA these days is a much raved about brand, I'm constantly shocked by their amazing products and tiny price tag, and I'm not the only one. Until recently I'd only tried out their lipstick and blush but I've been reading so many blogs raving about their eye shadows. I picked up the MUA Heaven and Earth palette about a month ago now, and I have used it every day, without exception! 

The Heaven and Earth palette is made up of 12 warm toned shimmery shades in a range of earthly neutral browns and light heavenly creams and vanillas shades. As you can see from the picture, the palette is biased towards the more earthly browns, rather than the lighter shades. The formulation of the product is a pressed powder, however the more shimmery shades, partiuclarly the lighter ones have a slightly mooosey/ creamy consistancy to them. Much like the old sleek palettes used to be like. 

The shadows in the Heaven and Earth palette are beautifully pigmented, and blend like a dream. With the variety of golden browns and shimmery vanilla shades, this palette has it all. I can create so many different natural looks, perfect for everyday and some gorgeous smokey eyes for night time! 

Below are swatches, with flash, of all of the shades in the palette. The left is the top row and the right is the bottom. The pale colours haven't shown up as well, due to my extremely pale skin but they are simply beautiful on the eyes. I love to use these lighter shades as a inner corner and brow bone highlight. 

I really do adore this palette, but I just wish there was a matte colour or two in there, a suitable eye brow shade would of gone down a treat for me, or maybe a matte highlight colour to balance out the shimmery shadows over the eyes. But apart from that I'm a happy camper! 

The packaging is simple and sleek, I love that it's really compact and slim, making travel really easy. The palette also comes with a slim double ended sponge applicator. I'm not a huge fan of sponge applicators , and use my own brushes, but it is a nice addition for quick on the go application. 

Once again MUA have not failed to impress me with their cheap products and great standards! This is the perfect addition to a travel make up bag or for your everyday routine. You can find the MUA Heaven and Earth eye shadow palette is superdrug stores for £4 or online here.
