Today I am going to review MUA Pretty Pastels Eyeshadow Palette that I got during one of my makeup haul. This palette contains 12 beautiful pastel shades, very delicate powder pinks, violet, blue, lime green and some neutrals. I have also reviewed some other MUA eyeshadow palettes in my previous posts. I really like MUA products, they are good in quality and very affordable.
This palette comes in firm black plastic palette same like other MUA palettes with clear lid so you can see colors from top and don’t have to open and go through all the palettes when you are searching for particular colors. The size of this palette is nice and it is perfect to put it into your makeup bag or purse when you go somewhere. It also comes with double ended sponge applicator which I don’t prefer to use.
I love the colours of this palette, this palette got pinks, lilac, yellows, greens and blues so there is plenty of variety. The colours are pigmented but does not very good pigmentation. You can easily build up the eyeshadow, to get richer pigmentation. When I first had a look at this palette, I thought that it is matte, but once I swatched it, I noticed shimmers. Each shade is pretty sheer and chalky in texture which can become quite messy. All the shades blend well.
To get the best results, I would recommend using a primer. Surprisingly some of the colours lasted on my eyelids for most of the day without creasing. Overall, I do like the palette, but it’s not the best. The quality of the eyeshadows is lovely, they are soft and buttery but some do struggle to last. In swatch you can see some of the colours look pretty similar so when you are using 2-3 colours together to create look you have to be careful while blending them.
