mua pretty pastels palette

| mua pretty pastels palette* £4- selected superdrug stores/ muastore.co.uk |
mua products never fail to impress me so when i saw this palette new for spring/summer i was super excited. it's a great way to embrace the pastel trend if you don't feel brave enough to go all out with your outfit.

initially i was worried the shades might wash me out, but  i found they were really wearable: nice and subtle. all but one of the shadows are shimmery (the matte shadow is the top left one) so if you're looking for something matte this definitely isn't for you! as usual i won't be using the applicator but that's nothing new, i always prefer to use my own brushes over those provided in sets.

the formulation is great. the shadows are super soft and easily blendable. for some reason the swatches are making the shadows look really awfully pigmented which isn't the case. they aren't anything special but were definitely buildable, exactly what would be expected from pastel shades.

this palette isn't going to change the world, but it does the job and i'm really loving it! perfect for brightening up a rainy day. it really does seem they can do no wrong! if i keep collecting bits at my current rate in a few months i'm sure i'll have collected the entire range ;)
