Recently M.U.A released a pro range consisting of primers, palettes and so much more and the best bit is that its all £4 and under! However it has been pretty hard to obtain, in Glasgow no Superdrug seems to stock it regardless of what the face book page may state and certain items have sold out online twice! I was lucky enough to get the Heaven and Earth palette by ordering online via Superdrug.
The Heaven and Earth Palette is a neutral based palette containing twelve natural shades. All of the shades are frosty, metallic or glitter based there is no matte shades present in this palette but don't let that put you off.
I honestly can't believe how pigmented and easy to blend each of these shades are!I prejudged the palette and thought for £4 I'd be lucky to like one or two of the shades but no way Jose, I love each one of these shades.Okay its not the prettiest palette packaging wise but if you overlook that you have a little gem of a product on your hands! I can see this replacing my naked palette and becoming the product I use on a daily basis, it really is that good and I seldom gush about a drugstore product as you normally get what you pay for.
Speaking of the Naked Palette it is inevitable that everyone and their mother will say is it similar or is it a dupe?
Well yes and no. Yes some of the shades are from the same colour family and it is the same sort of idea but the naked palette does cover a wider range of neutrals. However pigmentation wise I'd have to hand it to the heaven and earth palette as I do find a few of the naked palette shades chalky.
Overall its not a dupe but it is a good alternative for those who didn't fancy spending big bucks on the naked palette or simply couldn't source it.
While playing around with the palette I also noticed that a few of the shades are decent dupes for MAC shades.
Okay some aren't exact doppelgangers as you can see but for £4 who's complaining?
This palette comes with the Adrienne Stamp of approval, if you come across it snap it up promptly as it could well be the best £4 you have spent on cosmetics in a long time!
