Shop My Stash: Make Up Academy Palettes

Make Up Academy Palettes

Lately I've been wearing some pretty bright eyeshadow colours, from purple, to orange, to green. But I decided to go back to more neutral colours and after moving my ever growing palette stash, I realised I've been neglecting my Make Up Academy Palettes.

The colour that cracked was a medium matte brown, I'm so gutted as I always used it for my crease :(

For a good while I was tempted to buy the Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2 palettes, but had also heard many good things about the Make Up Academy Undressed and Undress Me Too palettes, for only £4 each! Shortly after I was at my friends house and spotted the MUA Matte palette on her bedside table. I asked her and she highly recommended I try out the palettes. I immediately when home and ordered both the Undressed and Undress Me Too 
 palettes from Superdrug, which came a few days later.

I still can't get over how good the pigmentation is in these eyeshadows! They're a really soft powder, so the buff well into the bristles of my brushes and give an amazing colour payoff. The frost finish shadows have an amazing, molten gold effect that I really cant get enough of. There is a good variety of tones and finishes in both palettes and I like that Undress Me Too even has a matte black colour Corrupt (although I find myself using the dark bluish colour Shade 12 in the Undressed palette more!

As I've never actually tried the Naked Palettes I can't really make a comparison, but what I can say that for a mere £4 - which is cheaper than a lot of drugstore single eyeshadows - you can get a great neutral palettes with amazing pigmentation, colour payoff and finishes. The packagings pretty cheap and even though they live in a drawer where they don't knock around the writing has chipped off a bit, but that's perfectly fine by me!

 Have you tried the Naked or Undressed palettes? What do you think of them?

  1. I swear by the Undress Me Too palette! Do you have a preference between the two? I also have the Ever After matte palette which is pretty good when I want a more toned down look :)

    1. If I had to choose I'd go for the Undressed Palette, but to be honest I always mix between them. I usually use one light colour from one then smoke it out with a darker one from the other. I've been eyeing up the matte palettes, I think I need to go to superdrug and have a wee look!


  2. You really can't fall off with these :D

    1. They're so good, I'm glad I dug them out! People always compliment my eye make up when I use them :)
