Next up is the MUA Professional Palette in Pretty Pastels:
Hands up right away! My least favourite. I just don’t like pastels that much. Some people do, especially those who like natural colours. I just find this palette quite samey and soft – but it IS pastels! It is delivering what one would expect!
The colours here are very soft and have a slight shimmer or sheen:
I think the colours could be stronger. There are some nice pastels out there, like some kind of candy hued sweety type shades.
I am using the palette to demonstrate the texture- as you can see it IS soft. It is NOT as soft as Sleek eyeshadows which crumble easily, but it’s still not rock hard.
The top row is full of milky hues:
2nd row seems to have slightly more shimmer. It’s still very natural indeed!
It’s still a decent palette in terms of texture, but I just don’t dig neutral bland pastels much. This could be a good palette for a teen who is new to make up – it won’t look too heavy or clownish.
What do you think of this palette?
Compare with the Sleek MakeUP i-divine eyeshadows here and the MUA Professional range (currently free shipping as of 04/08/2011).
