All of the natural coloured MUA palettes have some amount of hype around them - especially the more recent Undress Me Too Palette. But I rarely hear much about their other palettes and there's quite a few of them! Recently I picked up a couple of their other palettes to try having really liked the ones I already had. Today I'll be sharing the Glamour Nights Palette which has a great mix of colours in it, which I hope you enjoy!
As always I've included a summary at the end :)
As I've just said MUA actually do these 12 colour palettes in quite a few varieties, infact at least 11 different choices are available! This particular one contains 9g of product (0.75g per colour), but strangely all my others contain 9.6g of product - not quite sure what that's about! The price for each palette is just £4, which considering the number of colours you're getting, is a pretty good deal! This particular palette has no shade numbers/names - but the newer palettes have shade names.
Like all the MUA Eyeshadows I've tried, the matte shades are a little more chalky and not quite as pigmented, but actually in this palette they are pretty reasonable considering the £4 price tag. Generally the application is nice, and pigmentation is good, although not brilliant. But as I said, £4! I also find these wear reasonably well, getting minimal creasing and a little fading by the 8 hour mark over the MUA Eye Primer. All swatches are also over the MUA Eye Primer.
1 - A matte white - not the strongest pigmentation
2 - A dark blue tone purple - pearl finish.
3 - The much needed matte black in the palette and actually a very decent one!
4 - A nude gold, again pearl finish - this one looks lovely on its own with a coat of mascara.
...Some More Colours...
5 - This looks like a matte black, but actually it's a beautiful and pigmented blackened emerald/teal shade - matte finish.
6 - A straight up shimmery silver.
7 - A shimmery grassy green - could do with being a tad more pigmented.
8 - A matte blue toned light purple. Not awful pigmentation, but could be better.
...The Rest of the Colours!
9 - A pale matte grey colour - again mediocre pigmentation, but definitely usable!
10 - A shimmery bronze shade with pinkened copper glitter in it - the more unusual shade of the palette.
11 - A reddened fuchsia with an ever so slight violet duotone.
12 - A shimmery off white shade.
The Good - cheap, value, mainly good quality for the price, good mix of colours for many looks, lots of palette variations available
The Not so Good - Some shades could be a tad more pigmented, best used with primer.
Would I Repurchase? MUA palettes, yes- I'm tempted by the Glitterball one!

Personally I'm a massive fan of highstreet make-up and although the quality isn't always perfect I can try a lot of formulas and colours and just have a good play around. Plus a lot of the time these days there's some amazing quality! I'm not quite sure what made me feel the need to announce that! What about you, what you do you prefer highstreet or highend?
