So I haven't posted anything for a while and as always I'm really sorry about not being active ^^; School was pretty stressful for me for the last couple of months because I'm in my final school year and I was writing all of my 2-6 hour exams. However, I'm super excited to be posting today!
I was also thinking about making a post about my favourite products of 2015 because I saw many blogger and also youtubers doing blog posts/videos about it last year. Let me know if you would be interested in these kind of things!
But let's start with the review!
I got this eyeshadow palette (MUA Undressed) from my blogger friend Emily! I do think that you can get it online too but it will be a little more expensive than if you get it in England. As far as I know, this eyeshadow palette costs 4£ and you can get it in any store that sells cosmetics. I really wanted to get this palette because I heard great things about it and it's also well known as Naked 1 dupe. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of the Naked palettes from Urban Decay because most shades look too metallic and they're just not my style but I wanted to try it nevertheless.
Based on that I would say that the two gold tones Lion and Bronze Ore (Half baked & Smog) look a little different and also Rose Ash (Sin) and Gild (Sidecar).
Swatches, no primer (name of shades on photo above)Fawn (first row, no.3), Tawny (second row, no.3) and Gild (first row, no.4)! I absolutely love mixing Fawn and Gild together to get a little glitter into Fawn ♥
The two lightest shades (Puff and Rose Ash) are not as pigmented as the other shades! And also I think that Fuel and Cool Grey are a little dry compared to the other shades and also not as dark as you might expect at first.
There are some fallouts but to be honest I don't even mind it because some glitter around your eyes make them look even cuter imho
Here are some eye makeup looks I did with only using eyeshadows of this palette!

What I like about it
- pretty shades
- pigmented (most of them)
- price (4£)
- almost identical to the naked 1 palette
- sponge brush included in palette
What I don't like about it
- pigmentation of Puff
- texture of Fuel and Cool Grey
- glitter fall outs
- some shades look almost the same on your eyelid
- packaging gets dirty easily
Recommended?: I would definitely recommend it to friends who like the Naked palette but don't have enough money to buy the original one. I mean 12 eyeshadows for only like 6usd and most of them look almost identical! I wouldn't recommend it to people that were going to buy it because of the lightest shade (Puff aka Virgin) or the two dark blue shades (Fuel aka Creep/ Cool Grey aka Gunmetal).
The next post is probably going to be a small review from a website with cute things or maybe I'm going to post some reviews of my current favourites hehe~! Please look forward to them! ♥
Thanks for reading my boring review! ♥
