I’ve been testing out some new palettes recently and the first one I’ve decided to share is the MUA Luxe Enchanted palette.
I’m sure you have seen these palettes before over on Instagram and Pinterest, or the original ombre type palette that was released by Hourglass. However with the Hourglass Modernist eyeshadow palette costing £56, this isn’t affordable for most people and MUA Luxe have released their own version, which is always exciting when an affordable dupe comes along!
The Enchanted palette contains 5 silk eyeshadow shades in a variety of soft pink shades.
On a first glance the palette is so pretty – everyone loves a marble effect and this is beautiful. You can see way there is such a hype surrounding them, and not even starting on the dupe factor!
The outer packaging is quite simple and obviously a lot cheaper than the Hourglass counterpart. Sometimes I think that the cheaper brands could put a bit more into their packaging than making everything black and basic, but I am certainly not complaining about the range of products on the market now that are much more affordable than before.
Looking at the shades, they look very similar and I wasn’t sure how wearable they would be nor how pigmented and therefore whether they would even show up properly. My first thought was that the palettes will at least be great for pretty pictures!
You can see the colours swatched below, without and with flash:
How pigmented are they???!!!
I was so impressed! They are very pretty and the colour is so intense, they are perfect rose gold colours ideal for day wear especially weddings.
The only downside I can see to this palette is the colours are very similar and I do wish there was one less lighter shade and one more darker shade to help with creating an entire look. It means I need to use another palette for a dark shade to line my eyes – I look really weird if I don’t do this!
I’ve been really impressed with this palette and how pigmented the colours are.
Unfortunately the pictures I took of me wearing these shades were too blurry to share, not sure what happened to my camera that day but I don’t have any more to share right now. I will put some on our Instagram though, you can see them by looking for @thecsigirls
Have you tried the MUA Luxe palettes? Which one do you prefer?
