MUA eyeshadow palette (‘heaven & earth’), £4, Superdrug

Woah, what is this? A 9 piece make-up palette for under a fiver?? Yep!
I picked up this beaut of a palette in Superdrug a few weeks ago on a whim. On the surface, the MUA palette had a pretty decent range of colours, from extremely light creams to darker browns for smokey eyes. What is immediately noticeable from the swatches is the metallic shimmer in all of the shades, which isn’t too overpowering for the day, but will be nice to build up for the evening.
The pigmentation (as you can tell from the swatches) is a bit of a mixed bag. Whilst the darker browns and light metallics come out great (particularly the bronze shade in the top right!), it takes some effort to build up the right shade on the more neutral taupes and creams.
Despite this, it’s an absolute steal at £4! I’ve really enjoyed trying out all the different shades the past few weeks and have been impressed with how versatile the palette is.
If you’re after a cheap alternative to the Urban Decay Naked3 or Nars sets than I’d definitely recommend giving this a go!
