mua going for gold palette

| mua going for gold eyeshadow palette* £4- selected superdrug stores/online |
so the olympics may be over but olympic spirit is still alive and well in the uk right now it would seem. this palette from mua is a great way to inject a bit of that olympic excitement into your make-up.

when i first heard that mua were bringing out a product for london 2012 i was expecting something in the typical olympic colours (yellow, blue, red etc) but i was pleasantly surprised to hear they had decided to do something different. the palette is a selection of gold and silver shades. the main difference between this palette and those we are used to seeing from mua is that the shadows are in square pans! you may have also noticed that you only have 10 colours instead of the usual 12 but you do get more of each shade.

all of the shades are shimmery, as would really be expected, so if your a matte fan then this really isn't for you. the selection of gold shades is good and when i use it i really find myself leaning towards shades 1,3 and 7 because they are more on the brown spectrum whereas shades 5 and 8 are too orange for me but would work really well on blue eyes i should think. as usual the pigmentation and formulation cannot be faulted, something i have come to expect from mua.

overall i would say this this is another great palette from mua. not my favourite, but it has a nice selection of shades and i'm loving the new square pans!

are you sad the olympics are over? what were your favourite olympic beauty products?


  1. I wasn't a fan of the Olympics, but I love this palette, I'm huge on golds! :)
