MUA Make Up Academy Professional Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hey Everyone!

I recently purchased one of the new eyeshadow palettes from the MUA or Make Up Academy Professional Range in "Heaven and Earth". It looks like this..

It is a nice neutral palette with a mix of shimmer and glitter brown,bronze and cream toned shades. I was very excited about this as I really liked the single shades from the regular MUA range so when I heard that there was a professional range, with eyeshadow palettes, for £4...There was no stopping me from purchasing! At £4.00 you really can't go too wrong in terms of an eyeshadow palette, your getting 12 shades, that's just over 30p a shade..AMAZING! So as good as that is in general, it is topped with the fact that these shadows are really good quality. Here are some swatches..

This is the pay off from just a tiny touch of my finger, the colours are really nice and the pigmentation is brilliant. The shadows have quite a creamy texture and are really nice to use. I recently posted about the Beauty UK palettes, which I also like and which are also good value, but the MUA palette really just blows them out of the water. It's the type of quality I would expect to pay a decent amount for and yet it's SO affordable!

The next time I can get myself to a MUA stockist I will be buying the other palettes, I just can't see a reason not to! I would definitely recommend this palette (you'd never of guessed right?!). The shades give great looks, whatever style you like you can get, be it a neutral or a smoky look, you have the shades to do so.

To sum up..I love it! I have used it everyday since I bought it, one day I did a soft look for daytime then just grabbed the palette and jazzed it up for a night out! This will be my new "must have with me" item when travelling! Big kudos to MUA on this range, I have yet to try something I didn't like! But you will hear more about that in upcoming posts!

Anyways I hope you all enjoyed this review!

    i've yet to find a local superdrug so i can swatch & buy the pro range but i'm going to have to hunt & pick one up after seeing your swatches :)

  2. Me too! I would def try get your hands on one! So glad this helped you decide :) xx

  3. I live in Finland and it's almost impossible to find good eyeshadow palettes. My friend is going to London so I checked out Forever21's and Superdrug2s online stores. I asked if she could buy me 2 MUA palettes. But I had no idea of the quality. Now I can be sure I'm not spending my money o trash.

    Thank you! <33
