MUA Undressed Eyeshadow Palette Review + Swatches


Hello girls! 
Today I have a review on MUA's brand spanking new, UNDRESSED eyeshadow palette!!
I bought this over the weekend as soon as I realised it had been released :)

It arrived yesterday along with some other goodies that I ordered. You can see what I got here. I must say it was super quick delivery, thank you MUA!

If you aren't familiar with the MUA brand, they started out in Superdrug stores with all their products priced at just £1 each! Since then they have expanded and now have the MUA Pro range, where products can range between £1-£8. Still, great value! 
So, heres their latest addition to the range....




The packaging is trademark for most MUA products, the simple but stylish black and transparent case. 
I think this is wonderful as you can easily see what's inside the palettes without having to open them. (Great idea I'd say! I hate it when you find palettes and makeup with fingermarks smudged everywhere from people messing inside the packaging!)


The thing I like most about this palette is that there are both shimmers and matte shadows, and quite a range of colours! Mainly neutral, with a few deeper shades added in. I've read that it compares to the famous Urban Decay Naked palette? I wouldn't know as I don't own this palette to compare :(

The set does come with its own double ended sponge applicators, however, in all honesty, it's not the best, and I never use it.

Unfortunately MUA don't name their eyeshadows, they are simply just Shade 1-12 in this palette. But I'm sure it would take absolutely forever for MUA to name each and every one of the eyeshadows from their ranges. Them again, maybe you could have a bit of fun choosing your own names for each of the colours? :)


Shade 1
A very pale, peachy pink matte shade.



Shade 2
A pretty light pink shimmer.



Shade 3
A matte, beige/nude.



Shade 4
A gorgeous beige shimmer.



Shade 5
A medium brown, matte shade.



Shade 6
A bright gold shimmer.



Shade 7
A copper coloured shimmer.



Shade 8 
A dark brown shimmer.


Shade 9
A baby pinky-brown shimmer.



Shade 10
A Brown shimmer.


Shade 11
A dark grey shimmer with silver glitter flecks.


Shade 12
A shimmery blueish-grey.


From left to right...
Shades 1 to 12.


What a fantastic palette? And for just £4, its an absolute bargain too.

This is available to buy from selected Superdrug stores, if they stock a decent range of the Pro products. OR you can find it online at the MUA Store, here.

Have you bought the Undressed Palette, or will you be buying it now? :)




P.s Hope you liked this review, let me know if you would like to see more like this? x

  2. I find that the MUA products always look good on the shelf but the quality is a bit hit and miss. For such a cheap price I don't really expect too much, and I love the packaging for the price, but I have a £1 lipstick from them and I just find it so hard and gives such an uneven coverage. I think I need to branch out to their other products before making a complete opinion though, and those swatches actually look really good!

    1. Most of the products from MUA I have, I absolutely love. Maybe its because I don't really have any higher end makeup products to compare the quality to. But yes, can't complain for the price can we? :)

      I actually have a few lipsticks, shade 11 would be one I'd recommend. I would also recommend their eye and face primers if you haven't already tried them xx

      Thanks for commenting! xx

  3. These look lovely :) Sucker for neutral palettes, especially when MUA palettes are such good value for money.

    1. I've searched no end of Superdrug stores for the MUA Pro range, but hardly any of them have any decent stock of MUA.

      So unfortunately I do have to order everything from the MUA online store. But you should check it out. They delivered this order really quickly :)
