MUA Glitter Ball Palette

With the Heaven & Earth palette from MUA being a huge success in doing the blog rounds, we have another colourful counterpart, this time with glitter and sparkle to make sure we're all set for the party season to come.

It's very modestly called the 'Glitter Ball' palette. 

But you can tell when a brand securely names it palette something that's not very flattering on the face, it is unlikely it's going to be exactly as the name suggests. 

There is an array of beautiful colours with stunning foiled textures and sophisticated sparkle but fortunately NO chunky, falling out glitter.

There is a very clever mix of warm, wearable neutrals and cool pastels. Although at first glance the combination of colours might not seem very flattering to each other, they need to played around with in order to come up with a good few looks.

I like the fact that there is an unusual mix of colours as I really did not want another duplicate of Urban Decay's Naked!

They are all full-on in pigmentation with some being more easier to work with compared to others, however still being of superb quality for the price.

I created an usual Christmas party look with it, a bit loud for some I guess but I did not want to choose between classics such as black, gold and sliver hence incorporated all of them in a look. 

I used the black eye shadow as an all over base, applied the gold just on the centre of the lids for a bit of an oomph and finished off with applying a thick line of silver eye shadow on the lower lash line. 

On the whole, the palette is a stunner for the price. Its quite fun to play around with if you don't want to invest a lot in colours and sparkly eye shadows. 

Retails for £4 at www.superdrug.com and all Superdrug stores nationwide.

This is my favourite of the MUA palettes. I found the rest a bit of a letdown and nowhere near as good as every says. The gold, the dark green and the mushroomy colour are amazing.
