MUA Undressed Palette [Review+Swatches+3 Eyelooks]



So I got undressed last month!!:p and finally after some testing, trials and looks I'm sharing my thoughts about it with you guys!

MUA Claims: 
A fabulous addition to the MUA Palette family, this one is the ultimate must have. It has a great combination of nude shimmers and mattes and the colour selection is great for creating this season’s clean, natural look with highly pigmented colours. Undressed is bang on trend with the spring summer runway filled with nude makeup looks.



Packaging: 
A rectangular plastic box with a transparent lid which makes it easy to see the colors inside, a dual-ended sponge applicator included but no mirror.

Review and Swatches:

A neutral palette with 12 shades, a combination of Shimmer and Matte eyeshadows.

This has been called the dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette by many since it came out this year in July, even the name sounds somewhat similar! I have not used the UD Naked palette and hence cannot be a judge on that one but considering the numerous reviews and comparisons by reknowned beauty bloggers around the world, and the swatch comparisons I have seen I think it might actually be the best dupe ever invented for the Naked Palette.

From Shimmery Nudes to Golds and Frosty Neutrals to Metallics, this palette has them all. An ultimate go-to palette! 
The shimmer shades have a very soft texture and good pigmentation, you may experience a little product fallout with them but for the price this palette is an absolute gem to own! I'm absolutely in love with Shade 2 and Shade 9!
The matte shades are a little hard and chalky but not ashen, you would require a bit more product for a good color payoff as compared to the shimmer shades. But they are beautiful blending shades especially Shade 5. 

The swatches in this post are on bare skin and without any primer underneath, they last for a good 5-6 hours that way, with a primer I'm sure the staying power would extend to all day. 

This palette is compact and handy and travel friendly so instead of spending a whopping  £35 on the UD Naked Palette you can achieve an ALMOST similar effect with this MUA Undresssed for only £4.

I have never been much of an eyeshadow person but I find myself always reaching out for this!
