MUA Pro Line Haul - Thoughts & Swatches

There has been a LOT of hype surrounding MUA's pro line, especially the Heaven and Earth eyeshadow palette. I have been dying to get my hands on some of the range for a while now so I dived straight in when I found out that Superdrug were running free delivery on their website! Here is what I bought...


MUA Nail Quake in Broken Arrow


I've only ever tried Barry M & 17 Crackle polishes before this one. This one has booted those two straight to the side! I find that both Barry M & 17 are quite textured when dry, which makes me want to pick it off. This one dries really smoothly and it isn't gloopy at all. I love the colour, not so much over yellow, I just happened to be swatching my Ciate in Big Yellow Taxi at the time so applied this over the top. I think this colour will look gorgeous over silver and can't wait to have a proper play with it! This costs £2.99.

I can see why there is so much hype surrounding this palette. It provides a very good variety of good quality colours, for just £4. The eyeshadows have a lovely consistency and glide on effortlessly.

I think this palette has been slightly over shadowed by Heaven and Earth. This one really does deserve to be in the lime light as much as Heaven and Earth. Again this palette is packed with a fabulous variety of colours all of which have a lovely consistency.

MUA Extreme Metallics Celebrity

I decided to add this in at the last minute because it is a nice small palette with gorgeous colours. This will be handy for chucking in my bag when going away, again I love it! This cost £3.00.

Superdrug are running their free delivery promotion until midnight on 08 August 2011.

P.S. Please ignore my awful iron burn! I'm too cacky handed to swatch on the other arm!

  1. Ooh is the crackle really flat? I can't stand texture on my nails (makes me cringe, like hearing nails down a blackboard, but worse) I think it looks great over yellow- complementary colours and all :)

  2. Both palletes are soooo gorgeous! I loved Starry Nights one though because it's more unique because everyone has the other one! xxx

  5. I love the heaven and earth pallet! I wear mostly nudes so the colours in that pallet look they they put a new spin on the "boring" matt nude colours I always wear. Does the shadow tend to stay on well? xo

  14. I LOVE the look of the Starry Night palette! I feel the need to buy it! I only have one MUA Pro item at the moment, I need more! I won't buy the Heaven and Earth one though, because I have the NAKED palette, so I don't really need another big neutral one! Brilliant swatches (looks like that burn would of hurt though, ouch D: )
