Call me crazy, but I just can't resist a neutral palette - they are just so versatile! MUA Elysium Palette launched last week and I couldn't get my paws on it. I really like MUA palettes - I think Undressed Palette is my mostly used palette - the formula of the eyeshadows is very good, they blend nicely and the selection is great for the price. So I trotted to the till without any hesitation and £6 less I was ready to give it a go. 

There are ten shades available, a mixture of matte and pearl and instead of eyeshadow applicator MUA decided to give a black/white Duo-Eyeliner as a bonus. Don't get me wrong, I am not using these applicators to apply my normal eyeshadows and blend them, but they are extremely useful to apply a highlighting shade in the corner of my eye, so I am rather sad to see them go. I am certain I will not use the eyeliner, because I am really bad with such products, especially in the crayon type.

This negative aside, I adore all of these shades (some claim it is a dupe of Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and I can somewhat see the resemblance), they are very soft and smooth, but I've found that they are not as good as other standard MUA palettes - some shades are not very pigmented and hard to apply. But still - it is a wonderful basic palette which you can get without breaking the bank. I also really like the fact that the eyeshadows are named - such a small addition which makes a huge difference!

What do you think of these shades?

  7. I can see how this could be a dupe of the Naked 3 palette, but I've found with some of the other MUA palettes that the shades aren't very pigmented like you have said with this, which is slightly annoying!

  8. The Naked 3 has similar shades indeed in particular Cherub and Entrance. Seraphic looks similar to Copper in the Naked 2 judging by the picture. Great review.

  12. We could be waiting a little longer than anticipated Nike NFL Jersey to find out if the NFL will make a return to Los Angeles in 2016.
