Makeup Academy (MUA) Heaven and Earth Palette-Review, Photos, Swatches+Look

I've been wanting to try out the palettes for some time now and I finally got hold of my first one. It is inexpensive but is it worth the keep? Let's find out.
The MUA Heaven and Earth eye shadow palette is a fine product. The packaging isn't impressive in my opinion as the kit is prone to scratches and finger prints. But I guess it is Ok for the price. The top opens up and closes nicely to a firm grip. It has 12 neutral to warm shades, all of which have a shimmery satin finish and are very pigmented. From what I see in the palette are 5 shades of brown, 2 purples, 1 tan and 3 highlight shades. The texture is smooth and there's no fall out during application. That's a biggie! I wouldn't recommend using the applicator as the sponge did not transfer the color onto my eyelid. I could apply them rather easily with my fingers. The content is packed in Rs. 2 coin size pans and will last a good few months if you use it a lot and more if you use it less often. The color payoff is nice and it will turn out better if you apply eye shadow primer first. The staying power is a good few hours but the colors will gradually fade. Sadly the shades are not water proof so better stay away from anything wet. Ladies who are into matte eye shadows will not like this palette, however, the color selection  is great for smokey eyes and other formal eye makeup looks. Great for medium to deep skin tones.

The Makeup Academy (MUA) Heaven and Earth Palette costs Rs. 700/- only, which is a huge bargain for good quality.

Rating: 4.5/5

Take it:

If you're into shimmery eye shadows
You prefer neutral to warm colors
You're under a budget

Leave it

If you prefer matte shades
You expect it to be water proof
You don't like the color range

Price: Rs. 700/-
Available at:
Official Website: MUA

Conclusion: I love the Heaven and Earth palette because it serves its purpose, that is helping create beautiful eye makeup looks. It is impressive enough to lure me into getting more of these. Recommended? Yes!

I also did a look I'd like to share. Other then the Heaven and Earth palette I'm wearing E.L.F liquid eye liner in black, Rimmel Kajal Kohl pencil and black and Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara (read review here).
