the beauty post | MUA Undress Me Too palette

MUA Undress Me Too - £4

today i'm reviewing the MUA 'undress me too' eyeshadow palette. i've heard a lot of people saying that it's a dupe for the naked palettes by urban decay, but for a fraction of the price.
now i'll be honest - i've never tried out the naked palettes, i've always wanted to but can never justify spending more than £30 on some eyeshadow - i love makeup but not that much! so when i heard about the dupe story, i thought it was definitely worth trying out the MUA palette. 
it has 12 shades in, all with names that remind me of those in the naked palettes and all of the same colours. there are 4 matte shades and 8 shimmered, which i personally prefer as the colour of a shimmery eyeshadow is generally more intense. 
there's a wide range of nude/metal colours ranging from copper, silver, gunmetal and gold.
as you can see from the swatches below they do have a really good colour pay-off to say the whole palette only costs £4. however, i would say you need to use a primer underneath as they are cheaper so don't last as long or are as pigmented. 
but for £4 you really can't go wrong with this palette and i would definitely recommend it - i use it pretty much every day now!
here i just showed my usual daytime look.
i applied naked all over the lid with a bit of lavish in the crease. i then went over it with fiery to add a bit of shimmer and then used shy on the browbone and tear duct to highlight. 
definitely my go-to daytime eyewear!

here is a night-time look i created as well - i applied reveal all over the lid as a base, and then heavily applied devotion to the inside of the eye, and fiery to the outside and then blended them together. i then brought it under the eye as well under the lower lashes. i applied a tiny bit of obsessed to the outside 'v' to for definition and there you go!

finally, here's a sneak peek of a few new things i bought when i went shopping at the weekend - there will hopefully be an ootd post up on friday including them all so keep an eye out!
