Last spring/summer MUA launched quite a few new eyeshadow palettes, one of which is the Spring Break Palette. I absolutely love the MUA eyeshadow palettes and therefore I was very excited to give some of the new ones a try. At first I wasn’t really sure about the Spring Break palette, since there are quite a lot of bright colors in there and I usually prefer neutral shades. But after watching an eyeshadow tutorial including this palette I was sure, I had to try it. Today I’m going to be reviewing it. If you’re interested, keep on reading!
The packaging in which the Spring Break palette comes is exactly the same as most MUA packagings. It’s pretty simple and basic, but I don’t mind it. I like that you can see the colors through the lid a lot and I like that it’s pretty slim. But to be honest, I do wish it came with a mirror. That would make it way more travel proof.
As I mentioned before this palette is slightly out of my comfort zone. I usually only wear neutral shades and therefore I only buy palettes full of neutral eyeshadows. As you can tell from the picture, this is kind of different. Instead of neutrals only, this palette consists out of a few neutrals as well as a few bright colors like for example a barbie pink, a purple and a mint color.
Even though I’ll probably won’t get a lot of wear out of the brighter shades in the palette, I do like that they are in here. First off all because this way this palette is suitable for a lot more people. It’s suitable for those of you who prefer neutrals like me, but also for those who do like a pop of color in their eyeshadows looks every now and then. Besides that I think that because of the brighter shades the over all look of the palette is a lot more fun than it would be without them.
The palette is called Spring Break, which is in my opinion a very suitable name for this palette. The colors are fun, bright and playful and I think that pretty much represents spring. But even though it’s a spring proof palette I still really like wearing these colors during all other seasons as well.
Quality wise I’m pretty positive. The shadows do appear a little on the powdery side on the swatches, but when using them on the lids I don’t struggle with that at all. I haven’t experienced any fall out and you don’t blend them away super easily. I really like the way they work. I also really like the fact that the brighter shades, especially the mint color, are pretty pigmented. I didn’t expect that at all. Good job MUA!
The thing I love most about this palette is that it’s very versatile. Most palettes contain pretty similar and basic colors, but this palette is not like that at all. It contains so many different shades which causes me to get pretty creative with it and create lots and lots of different looks. I really like that about it because if prevents me from creating the same look again and again.
Over all I’m really glad I got this palette. I’ve been using it quite a lot, more than I expected when I bought it. I love the colors that are in here and I love how many options there are within this one palette. I highly recommend buying this palette to everyone, whether you’re just starting off with makeup or whether you’re already pretty skilled at it. It’s just an amazing addition to your collection!
The MUA Spring Break palette is available at Superdrug, online and Kruidvat for £4,00/€5,99.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know which MUA palette is your favorite!
