I usually stick to what I know and that being my Urban Decay 'Naked one' palette but I've heard so many great things about this I couldn't pass giving it a go any longer. I'm a complete sucker for neutral, shimmery shades and rarely waver so we were already onto a good thing.
The 'Heaven and Earth' palette contains 12 eyeshadows just like the Naked palette that'll help you create a minimal day look or a smokey golden, brown eye. Unfortunately it doesn't contain any matte shades like the Naked palette but all the shades are extremely wearable. I'm not a big fan of the plastic packaging (and can see it being easily broken!) but for the price I can see why it is how it is and I'm glad there attention seemed to be on the quality of the eyeshadows themselves! I've gotta say for £4 I didn't have high hopes but I'm really impressed with how soft, creamy and pigmented each of the shades are. I don't usually tend to prime my eyes but probably would with this to get the best colour pay off I could. Granted they aren't up there with my Naked palette shades but are a great cheaper alternative that I'd recommend over and over again.
Although the palette comes with a double ended brush which is a great added extra for all those starting off with make up, I've been applying them with a mixture of my Real Technique and BareMineral brushes which has made blending them super easy. I wish they'd have given each shade a name but I'm sure that's just me! My favourite shade for all over the lid had been number 9 and either number 5 or 10 to add to my crease to give definition and create a smokey eye.
You can find the MUA 'Heaven and Earth' palette in Superdrug stores around the country for £4 if you fancy trying it for yourself! Having been so impressed with this palette I'm looking to pick up the 'Undress Me' palette which is said to be a dupe for the Naked two palette that I do not own. Have you tried it?
