Thank God the Easter holidays are finally here! Last week was absolute madness with 2 assignments due in on the same day plus another presentation to prep for, but now that its all over and done with, I can finally begin to relax a little.
For today I thought i'd share with you all the much anticipated MUA Undress Me Too shadow palette, a supposed dupe for the Naked 2 palette.
Whether a dupe or not, its a beautiful palette consisting of cool neutrals in matte and shimmer textures.
This time, MUA have actually named their shadows, which is a nice touch and personally I prefer colours to have names as it makes them seem almost better than if they weren't named!
Top 3: Naked, Devotion, Shy. Bottom 3: Tranquil, Exposed, Reveal.
Top 3: Fiery, Lavish, Dreamy. Bottom 3: Wink, Obsessed, Corrupt.
The swatches were done without any primer underneath and the shimmer shades were easier to apply than the mattes, which were slightly chalky and took a couple of layers to stand out. However, since there's only 3 mattes in the whole palette, you're not losing too much!
The black, while a little difficult to get opaque, is surprisingly long wearing. After swatching, I took a shower and even after a whole lot of scrubbing the black still remained on my arm after every other colour had washed off! Not sure whether that's a good or bad thing...
The shimmer shades though, are packed full of pigment and glide on like butter. They blend easily and look gorgeous.
Overall this palette is absolutely stunning and its neutral shades with cool undertones make them perfect for easy, everyday wear. I can create endless looks with this palette and its quickly become one of my everyday essentials.
If you aren't sure about splashing out on the Naked 2 as your not sure if you'l even like the colours much, try this one out first. Maybe even get this as a travel substitute for the Naked 2, as its lightweight, compact and perfect for carrying around.
Have you tried this palette out yet? What do you think of it?
