MUA Ever After Matte Palette

Shades : Unwrap, Butter, Bare, Taffeta, Fade, Penny, Chino, Truffle, Fog, Smoke

I wanted this palette (and all the others MUA has to offer!) ever since I fell in love with the Undress Me Too palette, which is one I reach for everyday (review here). I was curious to see how this would match up in comparison to the shimmer finish of the other shadows - I didn't quite believe that a £4 palette could provide good quality matte shadows. I was wrong! This palette is lovely and offers the ability to create a variety of eye makeup looks from neutral to smokey and beyond. 

The shadows themselves are fairly creamy and not chalky as I had worried they would be - the only downside for me is they're not as pigmented as other MUA palettes, but they are still really nice. Another slight issue I have with this palette is that shades 2 and 3 (Bare and Taffeta) are nearly the same and when applied to the eyelid look identical, so in that way I feel a little cheated, but for £4 it's not much of a complaint. I absolutely love the colour 'fade' as a natural crease definer and often use 'unwrap' as a subtle highlight on the brow bone. Overall I would really recommend this palette for something a little different - it's very hard to find all matte palettes but MUA have come up trumps with this one; it's especially good if, like me, you're trying to build up a kit containing a variety of products and finishes.

What are your thoughts?

This looks like a fab little palette, shame a few of the shades are pretty much the same though! Fog looks really lovely <3

Great palette! I'm sure its great for travel too since it's quite inexpensive. If you are able to get a hold of NYX do it! The quality is so awesome for the price.
