MUA have really been impressing me at the moment. I grabbed a few bits and bobs a week or so ago – including their £2 eye primer which is amazing – and I’ve been really enjoying the Glamour Days palette.
‘Tis already well loved!
I think this particular palettes shades are very well put together for such an inexpensive palette. That they’ve put that bright blue in there with all the brown/gold tones makes it a winner for me as I love a pop of blue with a neutral look. The two matte browns and the matte pink highlight help make it really versatile. If you’ve got darker hair, the dark brown could possibly even be used as a brow powder, as well as adding depth and definition without being as harsh as black – so perfect for work or a daytime look. I’ve used this palette tons already:
Pretty versatile, huh? All the shadows used for these looks are from the palette. The second to last look I used the dark brown as a brow powder as well. I’m in love with the aqua and gold shade from the top row, as well as the burgundy/copper colour. Really nice selection, I think. FYI, all these looks are just over regular primer, not a creamy base,
MUA palettes are sold for £4. Four quid. I think these are an absolute bargain – the quality is just the same as their very popular single shadows which are £1, and the palettes contain 12 shades. It’s a no brainer really. The only negative is that the palette is a little flimsy, but my others have survived the handbag test and hey, £4.
