I finally managed to get my hands on MUA’s Glamour Nights Palette, and as usual with MUA Palettes it didn’t disappoint! If you’ve got a Christmas Party, Work Do or New Years Eve Bash to go to and want to wear something a bit bolder than a neutral or monochromatic smokey eye, you should consider picking this up.
The Glamour Days and Nights for me are the stand out products of the MUA line (perhaps along with the Heaven and Earth Palette) as they seem to have a very definitive theme, and the I can see myself using all of the colours. I can see the shades in this palette working brilliantly for a deep, sultry smokey eye with a pop of colour on the lid, and understated nude lips.
I find when I’m out for the night I hate having to worry about my lipstick (or gloss on the rare occasion I wear it) smudging or transferring onto my
cocktail pint glass, so I’d much prefer to go all out on the eye make-up and keep the lips simple. This palette is perfect for that, and with a good range of mattes and shimmers, including also a matte and a shimmer highlight, I don’t find I have to reach for shadows outside the palette to complete the look.
All the shadows last brilliantly over a primer, and stay on until I take them off. Over all the same high quality that you can now expect from MUA, with some great colours that you don’t normally see on the highstreet.
You might have noticed I’ve been absent on here and twitter for a few days and it’s because I been very preoccupied with this little sweetie…
Me and Nik adopted Jenny, an 8 year old Jack Russell on Sunday, and since then it has been very much like looking after a small child. I love her to bits and have been spending my free time walking her or letting her sleep on my lap! Now she’s settling in I will be back to cranking out some blog posts!
