Make Up Academy are back with yet another gorgeous eye shadow palette, welcome the release of the 'Smokin Palette'. It's the perfect palette to create either a glamorous evening smokey eye makeup look or a more neutral smokey eye make up look for daytime wear, brilliant!!!
The palette is made up of 10 eye shadows in total, 4 being matte neutral shades and 6 being more vibrant metallic shades, all of which are packed full with pigmentation and just generally look amazing!!! A new little addition to this eye shadow palette is that each eye shadow has a name unlike the other mua palettes which don't. The palette also includes an intense black eyeliner to help with the 'smokin' effect and complete your look.
The shades on the top row in the palette are....
Glory is a cream matte shade, perfect for either using as a base or highlighting the brow bone.
Boudoir is nude/peach matte shade, again great for using as a base.
Ghost is the most gorgeous shimmery taupe/grey colour.
Fantasy is a matte dark taupe shade, i love using this in the crease and also through my brows.
Mythical is a matte black shade, great for getting all smokey.
Broken is a shimmery copper shade.
The shades on the bottom row of the palette are...
Icon is a shimmery metallic looking purple/plum shade.
Unleash is bright electric blue metallic shade.
Chaos is deep metallic green shade which makes me feel really festive he he.
Wicked is a dark metallic gunmetal shade.
As you can see from the swatches these shades are not only gorgeous but the quality is outstanding. Every shade is highly pigmented, easy to blend, really smooth in texture and they all have amazing lasting power even on my oily eye lids without creasing. The kohl eye liner that's also included in the palette is nice too, its very soft and creamy and great for smudging out and creating those smokey eye looks.
Yet again MUA have triumphed in my eyes, this palette is absolutely stunning and great for Autumn/Winter time use too.
The palette is available on the MUA website and in most Superdrug store's for just £6, what a beauty steal!!!
