#SBBC Day Two: My Favourite Eyeshadow Palette

I am a big fan of Eyeshadow Palettes. I find them really handy for both at home and travelling. There is a great choice of colours and they don't take up loads of room like having lots of single shadows. I have a pretty good selection of palettes but one I always return to is Makeup Academy Undressed, the renowned dupe of Urban Decay Naked Palette.
I first bought this beauty on my U.K holiday last year and fell hook line and sinker for it. There was a good selection of neutral colours along with darker colours ideal for both day and night. This first palette lasted me ages, almost a year in fact. Until one day, it met with the little man and ended up smashed on the floor. I was gutted and ordered another one straight away on the MUA website

*I'm currently sans Undressed palette because it broke on my way home from a weekend away, I keep meaning to repurchase but every time I think of it, the palette is sold out on the website.*

On the whole the pigmentation is pretty good for a budget palette, the only colour I have issue with is the gold on the top row as it takes a good few layers to get any decent colour on the eyelids.
This palette is extremely affordable coming in around the €5 mark on the website. It is definitely my go to palette.
Have you tried Undressed or any other of the M.U.A palettes?

    1. Haven't tried their other palettes but will have to pick up a few

  2. I have the same palette and really like it, i usually always travel with it, so far it's still intact :) Superdrug here is useless though for keeping the MUA stand stocked and would love to get another one x

    1. Yeah I noticed that when I was down. Couldn't find anything I wanted :(

  3. I have this and it's such a good budget alternative to the Naked palettes, but given that Half Baked, the one similar to the gold, is one of my favourite shades, I have never really warmed to it that much. :(

  4. I love the MUA palettes as budget alternatives to the Naked palettes but given that Half Baked, the gold-y shade in the Naked palettes, is one of my favourites ever, I just didn't warm to the MUA versions :(

  5. Its back in stock on the MUA website as far as i know!
