MUA Undress Me Too Palette - Review & Swatches

When I heard that Make Up Academy had released this follow-up palette to their original "Undressed" palette (My review here) I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! It took me a good couple of weeks to find one, because it sold out as soon as they were in store! But I spotted this one sitting all alone at the back of the shelves and I snatched it up without a second thought! Especially at the very easy-on-the-purse price tag of just £4! Not to mention it's an amazing dupe for the highly raved about Urban Decay Naked 2!

NEW MUA Undress Me Too Palette

MUA have tried something a little different with this palette and gone for the white packaging rather than the traditional black. I'm guessing this is just a way of identifying it along with the rest of their new "Undress Your Skin" range which comes with similar packaging. I don't really have a preference between the black or white cases, although I think the white does make it a little cheaper looking? 

Another addition is the fact that each shade has a name, as opposed to numbering them. I'm definitely a fan of this as its much easier to refer to them, especially for reviewing purposes ;) haha.

Mini Master Class MUA Undress Me Too Palette

The back of the palette contains a mini "master class", which again, I really like. I'm certainly no pro when it comes to make up application so I appreciate all the help I can get!


As always with the MUA palettes, it comes complete with a double ended foam applicator. This really is quite handy and of a decent quality, but down to preference whether you use this type of applicator or a brush.

MUA Undress Me Too Palette

Naked - A matte cream, slightly yellow toned.
Devotion - A bright metallic gold.
Shy - Similar in tone to Naked, cream but shimmer/metallic effect.
Fiery - A mid toned copper, metallic finish. 
Lavish - A cool toned mid brown/beige, matte finish.
Dreamy - Deep, warm, metallic golden-brown.

MUA Undress Me Too Palette

Tranquil - A lighter, less orange-toned(than Devotion) gold metallic shade.
Exposed - A cool toned, "ash" grey metallic shade.
Reveal - Light silver shimmer.
Wink - A bronze metallic shade.
Obsessed - A deep brown shade, slight shimmer effect.
Corrupt - A plain black matte shade.

The shadows are well pigmented, however the matte shades lack a little with regards to colour pay-off compared to the metallic shades. But this is the case for a lot of high street matte eye shadows. So nothing much to complain about really.

My verdict? I highly recommend you buy this palette :)
Yet again, another fantastic palette from MUA. There are a really good range of decent quality shades perfect to create all kinds of natural and smoky eye looks! As I mentioned, a great dupe for the Naked 2 palette at a fraction of the price! Definitely the best £4 I've spent in a while anyway ;)

You can purchase from muastore.co.uk or at Superdrug.
(CURRENTLY ONLY £3, RRP £4)

If you've already bought the palette, what is your opinion on it?

  6. I love MUA's eyeshadow palettes! I really want this Undressed palette- although I agree with you that the white packaging does look cheaper than the black one. The shades are beautiful (my favourites are Devotion, Shy and Dreamy) although the mattes aren't too impressive. I have the Heaven and Earth palette so hopefully I'll be able to find some identical shades in there :)
