After seeing so many blog posts and videos talking about the MUA Make Up Academy Heaven & Earth palette it instantly found its way on to my beauty wishlist (it's currently a ridiculously long list!) but it wasn't easily accessible to me because my local Superdrug is absolutely pants! The beautiful Kim who blogs over at Dottie K came to my rescue when I won this palette along with lots of other goodies in her recent giveaway & I really can't thank her enough!
Urban Decay Naked Palette and you've been 'umming' and 'ahhing' over picking this one up too then I'd definitely say you should go for it! They are similar but I think they're still different enough to justify having both, the most notable difference being the Heaven and Earth shades are more warm toned which actually makes them much easier for me to wear.
The shadows themselves are buttery soft, super easy to blend & the shades are all beautiful. I personally love that there are no super dark shades because I don't reach for them very often at all and I can honestly say that I would use every single colour in this palette which doesn't happen very often! There are lovely highlight shades, shimmery lid colours & slightly deeper colours that define the eyes perfectly. The colours are all shimmery and that's probably my only criticism, a couple of matte shades would have made this palette pretty much perfect although with a good base underneath (Urban Decay Primer Potion, MAC Paint Pots, Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows, whatever works for you!) there is minimal fallout & the shadows last all day. I do also wish that the colours had individual names but I think my favourites are the four colours on the right hand side because they make a perfect warm bronze brown soft smokey eye that's perfect for the daytime.
Do you have the MUA Heaven and Earth palette in your collection?
