A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed the new MUA Professional Eyeshadow Palette in Pretty Pastels, and today I’m going to be talking about the Starry Night palette! This has been the palette I’ve been really excited to try out and review for you, so let me introduce you to it!
There are a total of 12 metallic eyeshadows in the palette, ranging from a baby pink to the deepest black (my personal favourite eyeshadow shade!)
There is also a double-ended sponge applicator in the palette – not something I’d ever use, but brilliant in case of eyeshadow emergencies!
Because all of the shadows are very metallic and shimmery, I was a little concerned from the beginning that they weren’t going to live up to my expectations. I decided to take a little cross-section of the shadows and put them to the test. I swatched the baby pink, the lilac, the deep blue and the black shadows on my finger tips to see how they looked.
So far, so good! I was very impressed with the pigmentation, especially of the darker shades. I hate black eyeshadows that looks washed out, so was pleased to see that this one looked as intense when swatched as it does in the palette.
I decided to see how well they blended out, and whether they were easy to blend.
Wow! The shadows blended like a dream and kept enough of their intensity to make for a really great eyeshadow look. With the baby pink, I had to add a little extra of the product to get a really good, intense blend but it still looked lovely in the end.
I say this each and every time about MUA products, but the value for money you get is wonderful. This palette retails for £4.00 – that’s around £0.33 per shadow. Amazing!
MUA have really impressed me with this palette, which makes me think that my previous not-so-great review of the Pretty Pastels palette was more down to the fact that pastels aren’t really my thing. Metallic, shimmery, intense night-time shades, on the other hand, most definitely are!
Have you tried any of the MUA Professional Palettes? What do you think of them?
