MUA Elysium Palette (Naked 3 Dupe?) – Review and Swatch

IMG_3050 IMG_3051

If you’re a fan of the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette then this is palette from MUA is going to be a winner for you. It has a mix of pink tone eyeshadows both shimmery and matte. There are 4 mattes and 6 satin-shimmers in this palette and it also includes a double ended eyeliner pencil. The best part? This cost just £6.00 from Superdrug!

These colours blend so beautifully with eachother. The shimmers need a fixing agent like Fix + to give their full intensity. This palette would probably suit lighter skin tones the best but nonetheless is very pretty on darker tones. You can get a variety of daytime and smoky looks with this palette. I also like the light pink pencil in the kit to blend under my eyebrows and inner corner of my eyes.

When worn with my Urban Decay Primer Potion the colours last a full 12 hours on me and even survived a sweaty gym session! I didn’t experience any fallout with this but there was a bit of fading throughout the day.

Now onto the swatches:

Drugstore Haul

IMG_2782

I went to Superdrug today for one item and well …this happened LOL. I found a couple of cool make-up things that I’m excited to try.

1) MUA Pro Palette Elysium £6.00. This palette has a nice mix of matte and shimmery eyeshadows leaning towards the pinker side. It also comes with a double ended eyeliner/highlighter pencil. I’m really excited to try this palette to create some girly spring looks. If you like Urban Decay Naked Palette 3 then this might be a nice dupe.

2) MUA Eyeshadow Palette Heaven And Earth £4.00. This is also a nice neutral shimmer palette again fantastic for the daytime. There’s lots of pretty golds in here which would look really nice in the sunshine ^_^

3) Maybelline Colorstay Stripped Nude Lipstick 728 Honey Beige £6.99. I got this lipstick as I actually don’t own any nudes in my collection. It’s a nice brown-nude with a satin finish.

4) Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof mascara £9.99. I need a new mascara and I got this after a recommendation from a friend who said it was amazing. Will probably do a full review later.

5) Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer Nude £7.99. This concealer gets a lot of love online, I’m interested to see if it performs better than the Maybelline Fit Me concealer, I will probably do a full review on this too.

6) Sleek MakeUp Brow Perfector DARK BROWN £4.99. This is my first eyebrow gel ever! I’m intrigued to see what kind of a difference this makes to my eyebrows.

I didn’t go too wild at the drugstore today thankfully, I’m so broke now it’s unreal (come on payday!!!)
