MUA Undress Me Too Palette - Swatches & Review

08:00

Hey lovelies,

I've been using this palette regularly over the last month or so and I have to say, it is honestly my favourite MUA palette of the stacks I have hauled recently. It has knocked my previous favourite, Heaven & Earth, from the top spot!

Undress Me Too is touted as a dupe for the ever popular Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay. I can't comment on that as I don't have the UD palette, but there are plenty of bloggers who have posted side by side swatches and comparisons. This palette will do me just fine for now, and being a fraction of the cost (£4 on MUA's website) is the cherry on top.



The packaging is sleek plastic, nothing too fancy, but it houses the eyeshadows securely. It is different from other MUA palettes in that it is white, instead of black - I think it makes for a nice change and actually prefer the white (although it's harder to photograph!). The palette comes with a double tipped sponge applicator, which I don't use but others may find useful.


Naked - Matte pale cream. Like many mattes, this shade swatches poorly, but performs better on the lid. I like using this to blend out other eyeshadows.
Devotion - A gold leaning brown shimmer. Just gorgeous.
Shy - Great pale gold (looks a little silvery here!) which works well as a highlight shade.
Fiery - Rich copper shimmer, great opacity.
Lavish - Matte taupe. Unfortunately this is incredibly sheer and difficult to build up, although it does blend well.
Dreamy - Golden brown shimmer. Darker and more gold leaning than Tranquil.
Tranquil - Lovely cool toned medium brown shimmer. This is a great all rounder, I use it as a lid shade as a wash, or in the crease and on the lower lashline with a lighter shade on the lid.
Exposed - Medium taupe shimmer. Great as a lid shade, and just brown enough to keep me from looking washed out.
Reveal - Pale taupe shimmer - much lighter than it appears in the pan.
Wink - Medium brown shimmer. Great on the lid or in the crease, this is an all rounder.
Obsessed - Deep umber shimmer which leans a little taupe when swatched. Blends out well.
Corrupt - Matte black. This is perfectly usable, but not as opaque as the black found in the Glamour Nights palette.

As with the Heaven & Earth palette, I found pigmentation to be excellent on the whole. The only shade I experienced difficulty with was Lavish, . The shades blend well (even Lavish, when I got it to show up!) and with a good primer, I didn't notice any fading. There was minimal creasing at the end of the day, but I blame that on my very oily lids and the air conditioning in our office rather than the eyeshadows.

Overall, I think this palette is pretty darn fantastic and would recommend it to anyone wanting to build a good collection of neutrals. A must if you enjoy shimmery nudes.
