MUA Heaven & Earth Palette Review

After all the hype surrounding MUA’s palettes, I of course had to pick up at least one when I was in London. I didn’t have much choice since almost all of them were sold out, but I did get my hands on the Heaven & Earth palette. A lot of bloggers compared the MUA palettes to the Urban Decay eyeshadows, and since their Naked Palette is my all time favorite beauty product, my expectations were high. 

I can’t say that the quality of the MUA eyeshadows is the same as the quality of the UD eyeshadows, but I can say that they deserve the hype. Even though they cannot compare with Urban Decay, the quality is still above avarage for a drugstore product. 

The biggest surprise for me was the pigmentation. As you can see below, the shades are super pigmented and they also feel quite buttery, which makes them great for blending. I do find that some of the shades don’t transfer well when put on with a brush, though. You need to layer them up. Speaking about the shades, I’m not totally in love with them. There are some really great ones (my favorite is shade number five – top row, from left to right), but some of them look just too similar to each other in my opinion. Also, if you’re a fan of matte shades, I have to disappoint you because all of them are shimmery. 

As far as the wear throughout the day goes, I think they’re pretty average. Not super amazing, but also not bad. All in all, at only 4 pounds, I think MUA’s Heaven & Earth Palette is an amazing product for every girl who likes neutral shades and doesn’t want to spend tons of money on good quality eyeshadows. What do you think about this MUA palette? I’m sure a lot of you already have it.

    I've always been tempted to get this palette but I think you're right a lot of the shades are a bit too similar. Still amazing for £4 though! xx

    So kr kul paletke, sm to da so vse shimmery me moti. Jaz rabim vsaj eno mat senčko, zato Mua ne uporabljam tako zelo pogosto 😀

    I was tempted to buy this, but I have a Sleek one that is identical so I bought the Starry Night one instead, I was surprised with the pigmentation too! x

    I haven't tried any MUA products but I wouldn't buy this because I am not a fan of shimmery eye shadow.

    I have this palette too and I like it, but I agree, I think the shades are too similar and I hate them all being shimmery. Try the Undress palette, it's alot better!xo aly

      I would, but my Sleek palette looks pretty much identical, so I think I'll rather spend my money on something else. But I've heard it's really good!

    I would definitely get my hands on this if it were available here (and at the same price). But for now I'm content with my Naked palettes 🙂
