Review: MUA Glamour Days Eye Shadow Palette.

Today I have another MUA eye shadow palette review for you. 

This one is on their 'Glamour Days' Palette. Which is a gorgeous colourful palette, with shades from ice blues, pretty pink and purple, and glittering gold! The range of looks that could be created with this palette varies so much. From every day natural looks, to big, bright show- stopping looks.


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! 


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 only down side is the packaging is a little flimsy, I have the heaven and earth palette and the lid has actually come off the base. But, I still love it!

Unfortunately MUA don't name their eyeshadows, normally they are numbered, however this one doesn't recognise each shadow at all, just an across the board name of Glamour Days.  But, in MUA's defence I'm sure it would take absolutely forever for them to name each and every one of the eyeshadows from their ranges. Then again, maybe you could have a bit of fun choosing your own names for each of the colours? :)


The thing I like most about this palette is the mix between both neutral shades and the brighter more colourful shades. Perfect to add a bit of vibrant glamour to your every day natural make up look. 

The set does also come with its own double ended sponge applicator, however, in all honesty, it's not the best, and I'll probably only ever use it this once to do the swatches.




*Below are swatches in pairs, starting from top left, down to bottom right*











What a fantastic palette? And for just £4, its an absolute bargain too. You can't go too far wrong for just £4 now can you?!

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 Glamour Days Palette, or will you be buying it now? :)
