Review & Swatches: MUA “Undress Me Too” Eyeshadow Palette

MUAPalette06
I recently introduced you to MUA. A bargain-brand that finally made its way to The Netherlands. After reviewing their Matte Lipstick in Peachy Keen, I wasn’t all that impressed. As I felt my excitement cooling down, I quickly decided to try out one of MUA’s eyeshadow palettes, as these are one of their most popular items.

Was the Undress Me Too palette going to change my thoughts and spark up my excitement again? Click for more!

The palette comes in a shiny White, plastic case. The top of the palette is clear, making life extra easy as you can quickly see which colors are in the palette. On the back you can find the eyeshadow names and a Mini Master Class where MUA gives you tips and tricks on how to create a fun look with the palette. That’s actually really nice, I love that!

What’s not so nice is the quality of the packaging. It’s a cheap plastic, that feels like it could snap with just the tiniest bit of pressure. Dropping this on the floor would end up a nightmare, as I’m sure a couple of eyeshadows will die and the packaging will crack as an end result.

The Undress Me Too comes with 12 sizzling Nude shades. From warm-toned Bronzes to cool-toned Taupes, the palette has a great variety of tones. However, it does not have such a great variety between mattes and shimmers, as this palette only contains 3 mattes (being the matte lover that I am, you can feel where this is going, huh?)

The shadows are decently pigmented, but definitely not buttery and smooth. I found them to create a lot of loose-dust once I dipped my brush into them, and that is something you see often with cheaper brands.

I also noticed that quite a lot of the shadows have a strong White-Silver shine. Making almost half of all the shimmery shades look alike once applied to the eyes. I noticed this especially with the cool-toned shades. Other than that, the shimmery shades are very easy to work with as you can blend them out in seconds. Oh, and thumbs up for the Black, ’cause that’s Black!

Here I created a soft and subtle smokey look using the palette. I defined my crease and outer corners using Lavish. I dusted a mixture of Fiery and Wink onto the lids. For the bottom lash line I created some shining-definition using Obsessed. Unfortunately, Naked did not show up on my inner corners, so I used a different highlighter to light up my inner corners. To finish it all of some mascara and nude eyeliner!

THE VERDICT

The MUA Undress Me Too palette is a fun palette. It has a great mixture of cool and warm tones and if you’re a shimmery-eyeshadow-addict this is the palette for you! Personally, I like my mattes and with only 3 mattes in the palette, this doesn’t do it for me. I’m also not a big fan of the excessive White-Silver shine a lot of these shadows have. But hey, for a retail price of €5,99 there’s no reason not to try this palette out for yourself!

    By the way it’s a dupe for the Naked 2 palette.

  2. Linda says:

    I loooooove exposed, its the prettiest color i have ever seen! I dropped my palette tree times, and after third time, it died! But it you have to get in too it before the color is showing the best way. My favorite cheep pallette :)

  3. Marieke says:

    Thnx for the review:) But i am wondering, since this is a dupe of the Naked 2 palette, and you do not like that one either, is it better to get this MUA palette, or pay a shitload of money for the naked 2 palette?

  4. Shaz says:

    Mooie look, de kleur van je oog springt echt eruit! Dit is een mooie palette om mee te nemen op vakantie i.p.v. Naked 2. Als het kapot gaat of gestolen wordt, dan ga ik niet erom huilen. ^_^

  5. Amy says:

    Mooie look! Jouw wenkbrauwen zijn ook praaachtig.

  6. Michelle says:

    I kinda like it! I was in Kruidvat yesterday but this pallette was gone :(. They had the other one but that one looked to much like a Sleek pallette I already have. Sooo, staying patient for a while!

  7. Joli says:

    Dat is hoe zwart hoort te zijn!

  8. Ella says:

    Love these colors!

    I’ve been using this palette for almost a year now, and I’m quite pleased with it. It’s definitely a nice dupe for Naked 2, especially for those of us who cannot afford the original.

  10. nenacecilia says:

    Ik vond hem ook leuk! Maar heb hem weggedaan omdat ik Naked 2 ook heb. Ik had in de winkel niet door dat het een dupe is ;-)

  11. Amelie says:

    Ik vond het een fijn palette, maar de vergelijking met de UD oogschaduws, nee daar is de kwaliteit niet goed genoeg voor. Maar vooral de warme tonen vind ik heel erg mooi!

  12. Nikki says:

    Wauw een heel mooi palette, maar heb al veel van deze kleuren

  13. Elle says:

    This looks really exciting! I love ‘Corrupt’ and ‘Dreamy’, they’re so beautiful! I heard it’s a pretty good dupe of NAKED 2 and after buying NAKED 3 I’m kinda broke…… Time to visit the drugstore! ^^

  14. Paola says:

    Zo mooi! Ik heb het Undressed palette pas geleden gekocht en ik hoop deze ook nog te scoren!

  15. Tessa says:

    Ik scoor hem hier nog even in Engeland,
    hij is hier £4 scheelt toch weer iets :)

  16. hellokkitty5 says:

    thats a look a like from urban decay naked 2 pallette

  17. Lisa says:

    I love the eyelook you made with it! And your eyelashes really look al much longer:)

  18. Molly says:

    I saw this eye shadow palette in superdrug but I was put off by the brand as I have tried it out before and it can be very bad quality but now I have seen the different shades, the product looks better than I thought as I expected the colours to be faint, plus I love abit of shimmer (:

  19. Emma says:

    Jup, my palette fell, and guess what happened……:(

  20. Sarah says:

    I’ve dropped this palette tons and it hasn’t broken the packaging or shadows!
