Review: MUA Undress Me Too Palette

MUA Undress Me Too Eye Palette


With the success of the MUA Undressed Eye Palette; which has been duped for Urban Decay Naked Palette, brought the release of their second palette 'Undress Me Too', which again is packed with shimmer and matte nudes for an ever day, natural eye look. This has been donned as the dupes for UD Naked 2 Palette; as I don't own either UD products I can not compare but for a bargain of £4 I picked up MUA's 'barely there' eye shadow palette to give it a whirl. 


Packaging and Information: 

The Undress Me Too palette contains 12 eye shadows, the product being made in the UK and is 9.6g. It costs £4 and it is available to buy from most larger Superdrug stores, Superdrug's website or the official MUA website. (It is currently reduced to £3 on both websites too, bargain). The packaging for Undress Me Too is in a sleek white case, different to all of their other palettes in their usual black case. The packaging is nice but nothing extra-ordinary, the colours are represented well and even have shades names for each eye shadow on the back of the palette.


Pigmentation:

I've got to be honest, I was a little disappointed with the pigmentation of some of the shades, mostly the mattes as they weren't very pigmented at all, in particular 'Naked' and 'Lavish'. I am aware MUA is a very affordable brand, and for £4 for a palette with 12 shadows, I cant really complain but it is a little bit of a let down seeing as thought some of their other palettes (Heaven and Earth for example) are much more pigmented.





Swatches:

L-R: Naked, Devotion, Shy, Fiery, Lavish, Dreamy

L-R: Tranquil, Exposed, Reveal, Wink, Obsession, Corrupt

As you can see from the swatches above, the matte shades are not very pigmented at all. 

What are my overall thoughts?

I thought the palette has a nice selection of colours, lots of nice natural tones and also shimmery greys and a black which would make a great smokey eye I am sure. I liked using it although I do think my Sleek palette is much more pigmented and better quality. The shadows last well only if worn with eye primer beneath, I found they slid off through out the day when I tried wearing the shadows without a primer. I probably wouldn't repurchase this in the future as I have enough neutral palettes to last me a life time, but I do think this would be great for anyone on a budget as it is so affordable. I have always been a huge fan of MUA products, and even though I like this, I wouldn't say I loved it and it isn't as pigmented as some of their other eye shadows I own. If I were to give it a mark out of 10 it would probably be 6/10.

Have you tried any of MUA's new products? What are your thoughts?
