MUA Undress Me Too; a let down.

When MUA announced the release of their newest palette, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. With the slightly risky name of Undress Me Too, this palette has been dubbed the Naked 2 dupe. Like most MUA palettes, the palette contains 12 shades with a mix of both shimmer and matte shades.

I thought, like when I purchased the Undressed palette from MUA, that this palette would also wow me and surpass my expectations. And there are a few shades which I really love from the palette, such as Fiery and Shy. But for the most part? It hasn't wowed me and made it's way into my favourite palettes pile.

I can't deny that MUA does have good quality products for the price. Their prices are some of the lowest on the UK high-street and I do love and often use their eye-shadow palettes. But I just found this one a little lacking. Perhaps I miss the days when MUA palettes were colour themes all of their own thought, and not a dupe of higher end products. And I find some of the shades in the palette lacking in the usual lasting power I've come to expect from MUA. Of course, this is an utterly bargain palette at £4 and I do use it every now and then, I just don't think it is the best palette MUA have to offer. In fact, I could happily live without it. It hasn't impressed me like the Undressed palette did. And it's possibly even put me off of MUA for a while; I love high-street dupes of high-end products. But I prefer originality in a brand, lasting power in their products and stand alone colours. And this doesn't tick any of those boxes.

You can find this palette on the MUA website here.
