MUA Heaven and Earth Pallet Review

14 comments
Hello Lovelies,

Hope you're all well and having a nice weekend!

A while back I bought the MUA Heaven and Earth Pallet from Superdrug. I realise this pallet has been blogged about loads in the Bloggersphere, so I hope you don't mind me adding in my 2 cents worth!

The first thing I noticed when I got this is that the eye shadows seem tiny!  
You get 9.6g worth of product with this pallet, so it works out at about 0.8g per shadow. For example, with a single Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eye Shadow you get 2.4g worth of product, so that's 3 times as much as a single eye shadow from the MUA Heaven and Earth pallet.

There is no denying that all 12 colours in this pallet are beautiful. 
However all shades are shimmery, and it's certainly missing 1 or 2 matt shades!
As you can see, the colours are very pigmented
I've numbered the colours in the pallet according to the swatches along my arm. 
None of the colours in this pallet have names.
Another thing I've noticed is that the colours are not very finely milled.
If you look at shades 5 and 7 for example, the swatch looks like it's got 'bits' in it. 
I tried using a few of these shadows to create a brown smokey eye but failed miserably. I don't know if it's the formula of the shadows, but used together they just created a muddy mess on my eyelids. Very apt, considering it's called the Heaven and Earth pallet☺!

I'm still getting a bit of use out of this though. I've used shade 5 quite a few times. It's the darkest shade in the pallet.  I like using it in the outer corner and blending it inwards to create a smokey eye. 

I think individually the eyeshadows work great, and for £4.00 you really can't go wrong, but this pallet isn't as versatile as I had hoped and I may well end up passing it onto my old dear when I see her at Christmas.

What do you think? Have you used this pallet and what are your favourite shades from it?

  1. Thanks for the honest review! I've heard nothing but good things about this palette, so it's nice to hear a few negatives as well! I agree, I think the colours look beautiful but I'd prefer some matte shades too! xxx

  2. These shades 'look' gorgeous but its a shame they haven't worked out well. I personally like matt shades & if I feel like I'd top them off with some shimmer.

    I like shades 8 & 9. Thanks for an unbiased review. :P
