MUA Heaven and Earth Palette.

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!
If you already own the 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?

  1. Ohhh it's so lovely! Why it's so hard to get MUA in Europe??? I would totally buy it if Superdrug offered international shipping :(

  2. I bought this a few months back, and strangely enough I keep forgetting about it. It sits at the bottom of my drawer, and whenever I see it I think "I must use this more!!". The thing is, I really cannot get into eyeshadow much! I think it's fantastic quality for the price though, it's a fantastic little palette.

  10. I bought this yesterday! Having a new job in the middle of town is a nightmare (but I love it) I am in shops that I would go in twice a year and I am always finding things I need!! I could never find this...start working next to the biggest superdrug in Cardiff and BAM I bought it :) x

  11. I was in superdrug yesterday and saw that the display stand had doubled in size! I didn't buy this as I have a really similar sleek palette but I did get the the purple crackle polish...

  12. Oohh these are lovely...those colors work on just about anyone!! I have brown eyes and I've found that using MAC eyeshadows, you can use "Folie" as a base just above the lashline (it's a creamy dark chocolate) and "Nylon" a gold cream color as the highlight, it's a great night look!

  14. I really need shimmery earth tones in my make-up collection (particularly when it comes to eyeshadows!) so will have to think about this!

  16. I was wondering about this palette, but wasn't so sure whether I'd actually use 12 brow/nude colours. Then again, for that price it almost doesn't matter and it's interesting to read that the shadows are of good quality as well.

  17. I have seen a few reviews on this pallet and they all have been positive. I think I may have to get one. I love the look of the colours, was slightly worried about the texture.

  19. I haven't got this palette-and although I love neutrals I don't really *need* any more eyeshadows...although if I did happen to see it in store then I can't say it wouldn't end up in my basket!!x
