MUA Glamour Nights Palette

Before I bought Glamour Nights, I had never used an MUA palette. When I purchased the MUA Love Hearts lip balms I decided to also get the Glamour Nights palette after hearing lots of very good things about them, and it was on offer for £3 at the time instead of the usual £4. I prefer palettes to individual shadows, so I'm always on the lookout for some good quality but affordable ones.

The palette contains 12 shades, a mix of both shimmer and matte. The shades are leaning more towards the more dramatic side as opposed to neutral. It comes in black casing with a clear lid, and a description on the back.

The shadows themselves are generally well pigmented, but do require some build up. The matte ones in particular I found a little chalky and not as pigmented but the shimmer shades are much better. The chalkiness of matte shades doesn't bother me too much, but the shimmer shades are lovely. There's quite a good mix of colours in there too, but they're definitely on the more darker side, and perfect for more dramatic looks. In particular I love the silver and the green, and the dark purple and blue the most. However, I did get quite a bit of fallout with these, but I've recently started applying my foundation after my make-up so this isn't an issue for me.

Top row. The white is swatched, but it blends into my skintone.

Bottom row. Doesn't show just how gorgeous the green is unfortunately!

I've worn these both with and without a primer, and I've found the lasting time to excellent. Much better than I was expecting from a palette that only cost me £3! These last me a full day at uni, around the ten hour mark with primer, and about five-six hours or so without.

I think that if you're more into matte shades then maybe this palette isn't quite for you. But if it's shimmer shades that you're looking for, this is great, especially at only £4. You buy this palette from either Superdrug or the MUA Store.

Do you own any MUA palettes? What do you think of them?

Disclosure: I bought this palette myself.
