PRODUCT REVIEW - MUA 'GOING FOR GOLD' PALETTE



Going For Gold palette - £4*

I'm a big fan of MUA, i think it's a really good affordable brand and their heaven & earth palette is one of my all time favourites. This going for gold palette is (I'm sure you can guess) to celebrate the Olympics and the 10 colours are inspired by bronze, silver and gold. I like the new look of this palette with the square pans instead of the usual circular ones, it feels like you're getting a lot more product. Unfortunately i find this palette to be very hit and miss with colour payoff. The rich golds and bronze are highly pigmented and you only need a little on your brush to go a long way, whereas with the lighter shades you have to really work with them to even see a bit of colour which is really disappointing. But considering each eye shadow is only 40p and 7 out of ten are lovely it makes this palette worth it.

Have you tried these eye shadows? What do you think?

  2. The gold shade is beautiful! Shame they've not all got such good pigmentation, but at least it's not expensive! :) x

  3. Despite hearing so many good things, I've not yet tried any MUA products. I tell a lie... my Mum bought one of their nail polishes and I had a go with that, but apart from that!

    I really like the look of some of the gold/bronze shades in this palette, and like you say - for the price you can't really go wrong.

    Pretty sure I'll be popping out sometime this week and snapping this up to try out :)

  14. I couldn't understand how this palette was designed around the olympics but now you've said 'bronze, silver and gold' the penny's dropped! I've never tried an MUA palette but think I need the Heaven & Earth one in my life xxx
