For those interested in the Undressed Too Eyeshadow Palette I decided to review MUA Makeup Academy Undressed Eyeshadow Palette today. Although the color selection differs from the new palette you can still get a feel for the formula, pigmentation, etc….as I’ve found many of their palettes are consistent quality wise.
Let’s take a look!
These come in a flimsy plastic rectangle compact with one dual sided sponge applicator. The packaging isn’t going to win any major awards but for the £4 it is well worth it when you check out the formula.
Unlike Sleek Makeup’s Eyeshadow Palettes I found the formula on MUA’s much more forgivable in the frost department. Most shades, for me, have a strong metallic finish.
The shadows are most comparable to the creaminess you’d get from a Stila Eyeshadow. The texture is a cross between a powder and a cream with a velvety, buttery texture that applies and blends like a dream. They do have some bad fall out so I typically rely on sponge tipped applicators to apply as it minimizes fall out for me.
The Undressed Palette comes with a range of matte and metallic finishes but mostly the metallics dominate the palette. I don’t particularly like some of MUA’s darker matte shades as I find them a bit difficult to blend and they always look patchy on me. The lighter mattes always seem to have a better formula with a buttery texture and an easy to apply formula. So mattes are a little inconsistent for me.
For the most part MUA has a strong budget shadow formula. The texture is beautiful for such a small price tag and pigmentation is excellent with a rich color pay off so what you see in the pan translates well to eyes.
Overall, if the Undressed Too Palette is as good as the Undressed Palette fans should be very happy. If you’re looking for a good way to get in on some inexpensive eyeshadow Palettes MUA definitely has solid offerings.
Although UK based MUA does ship worldwide. I believe shipping is $12 or so. If you have friends that enjoy makeup or you’re part of a makeup forum maybe do a group order to make the price of the products worth the higher shipping costs.
