Hi to all beauties of IMBB,
This is me again with another favorite product of mine. Its the “Heaven and Earth Eye shadow Palette” by MUA (Makeup Academy).
Packaging and Price:
12 Shade Eye shadow Palette.
4 GBP ( Around 320 INR) for 9.6 g. (Comes in a box-like palette with an applicator).
What MUA Says about Heaven and Earth Palette:
Enhance your natural beauty with Heaven and Earth palette for everyday shades that works anytime, anywhere. This palette includes 12 shimmer shades to complement your every mood.
My Views on MUA Professional Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette:
I absolutely love this gorgeous palette. I have similar shades in my Naked palette 1 by Urban Decay. I must say that these are a close dupe of Naked Palette.
When I saw this first in Superdrug, I looked at the price and it was just 4 GBP. I was amazed because there were 12 eye shadows for just 4 GBP. I immediately took it. I liked all the warm and bronze shades in it, its not too shimmery, but its too good and I liked it so much.
Now, about the comparison, Urban Decay (UD) Virgin can be compared to (MUA) Heaven and Earth 1,4 and 9 out of which 4 is the closest match. UD Sin can be compared to 9th shade in MUA. Sin is more pink in tone while 9 is more peachy, but its a closer match. UD Naked can be compared to 8th shade in MUA. Naked is more matte but its close to 8th shade. UD Sidecar can be compared to 2nd, 10th and 12th shade in MUA. Though 2nd, 10th or 12th do not form an exact dupe, its somewhat similar. UD Buck is similar to the 8th shade in MUA. UD Half Baked can be compared to 3rd and 6th in MUA. UD Smog is closer to the 2nd, 3rd and 11th in the MUA. UD Darkhorse is similar to 5th, 11th and 12th in MUA. UD Toasted can be compared to 2nd, 5th and 11th in MUA. UD Hustle can be compared to 5th and 7th in MUA.
MUA doesn’t have dupes for UD Gunmetal and Creep; however, for 4 GBP, you are getting almost all the look-likes of the world’s best-selling eyeshadow palette (Urbay Decay Naked 1), which is really great, but Urban Decay Palette is always special to me. Whenever I take shadows from that, I fear it will be over soon.
I felt the MUA shadows were soft, its long lasting and I started comparing the price. I bought UD palette for 35 GBP. On the other hand, MUA Heaven and Earth Palette is for just 4 GBP, I am dead. :secret2:
I definitely love my UD, but I am saying that if you get a close dupe for just 4, then what will you do. Will you choose the 34 GBP one or the 4 GBP one. I am not saying that the shades are too similar, they are look likes, but if you wear them, no one can clearly identify whether you have worn UD one or the MUA one.
Swatches Row Wise:
First Row in Natural Light
Second Row in Natural Light
I noticed no fall outs, I applied it with a primer underneath. I used “That Gal” primer by Benefit and I liked the way it blended. I noticed no fading, no creasing even after hours of application. Ingredient list is given on the reverse side of the palette. I have included swatches and a look which I created using this palette. I have been suffering from severe acne and I am slowly recovering, so please don’t mind my ugly acne face. Post your views and comments (negative as well as positive).
For 4 GBP, this is a good deal. If you get a chance, you must surely try this.
Pros of MUA Professional Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette:
- Easy to blend and apply.
- No creasing, lasts longer when applied along with a good primer.
- Good for smokey eyes and warm neutral shades.
- Close dupe for Urban Decay Naked 1.
Cons of MUA Professional Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette:
- Non-availability in India.
- Contains parabens.
Will I Repurchase MUA Professional Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette?
I will and I have already bought the other series too.
Hope you liked my review and I will be back with another review.
Till then, bye and loads and loads of love, enjoy!!!
