MUA 'Going for Gold' Palette

In the spirit of all things Olympics, MUA were recently giving away their 'Going for Gold' palette for free if you spent £8 or more online. Not being one to like to miss out on a deal, I put in an order straight away!

The palette consists of 10 shades, all shimmery, some very metallic, ranging from nudey shimmers to highly pigmented yellow-golds, bronzes and gunmetal silvers. Unlike their previous palettes, the shades are square, as opposed to round, making it look like you get a lot more for your money.

Let's get a closer look...

Some of the shades look quite a lot different when swatched on the skin, what do you think?

This last photo is to show how pale and delicate the first four shades (from the left, two on the top, two on the bottom) are. Below is MUA's colour swatch, as you can see the shades look a lot more pigmented.

All in all, I think this is a brilliant palette. The colours are brilliant, with a varied selection of metallics and shimmers. The fact that some shades are much lighter, for me, is a benefit, I much prefer to wear nude tones during the day so these are perfect -- they're also brilliant for highlighting. The other, more pigmented, colours look stunning along the lower lashline and give your eyes a real pop. + for £4, or free in my case, I don't think you'll find a better palette or variety of colours.


Buy the palette from MUA.
