Review: MUA Smokin Palette

Hello beauties. I hope you all had a great weekend with lots of rest and probably some at-home pampering. For a long time, I was someone who didn't use eyeshadow on a daily basis and sometimes not even on the weekends. But I have quite a few so I decided to make it part of my everyday look. So when I got this palette in a package from my lovely friend Laura I was excited as the colours looked great. Laura is a total babe, an amazing blogger and a great friend so stop by her blog Tease Flutter Pout. Today, I'd like tell you what I think about the MUA Smokin Palette.

MUA Smokin Palette Swatches: Colours

The palette contains 10 colours, with the first row being neutrals and the second being more colourful, and includes both matte and shimmery shades. I think the colour range is great for everyday makeup as well as night time. The eyeshadows are quite pigmented and I've used them both dry and wet. Using them wet gives you a more dramatic look so I keep that for evenings. The palette also contains a black kohl pencil which I haven't used very often as I usually use an eyeliner pen.

With the Smokin Palette, I haven't noticed much fallout during application. Actually, when I use them wet, there is hardly any fall out which is great because it means I can apply my base before my eyes {it's a habit for me}. I have been using this palette constantly for my everyday look {well, up until I got a bump on my eyelid and applying eye shadow just makes it more obvious} and it is so great. And for the price, well you can't really go wrong with this one.

My favourite shades for my everyday look are Glory, Boudoir and Broken. I find that they blend very well together and don't look like I overdid it to the office even when I have a bold lip.

Overall Summary
Price -  £6
Likes - Great range of colours, especially for everyday use.
Dislikes - Could be more pigmented.
Verdict - Love! Favourite palette for everyday use.
Available - Superdrug, MUA Website

Have you tried this palette? What do you think? Which is your favourite MUA palette?


  1. These look very pretty and pigmented. I don't wear eye shadow these days as much as I used to but perhaps with those lighter tones it could work. Thanks for sharing! xo

    1. They are not supper pigmented which I actually quite like because they don't attract a lot of attention when applied dry. x

  2. Looks pretty good, especially for that price! I heard MUA is coming to the Netherlands really soon, so I'll certainly check that out :)

    1. Oh that sounds fab! You can also order online, I think they ship to the Netherlands as well. I know I've ordered stuff to Latvia before and the shipping fee isn't expensive like with some companies.


Thank you for stopping by. I love reading your comments, so be sure to pop one over x
