Review • MUA 'Undress Me Too'

As I'm sure pretty much every make-up fanatic out there has - I have been after the rather pricey Urban Decay 'Naked' and 'Naked 2' eye palettes for a lifetime, but just can't quite justify spending the money on them. And it was only recently that I discovered my local Superdrug stock the MUA collection of make-up, which I was aware did extremely good dupes of the two palettes, named 'Undressed' and 'Undress Me Too'. As soon as I realised that I could get to the MUA make-up, I rushed into Superdrug and bought the only remaining 'Undress Me Too' eye palette for a fantastic £4! And I absolutely love it.  
I know I don't need to persuade any of you to buy this product, as I am probably about a million years late with jumping on the bandwagon of this - but I just wanted to do a small review of it and let you know what I personally think of this product. 

♥ Top Row Colours (left to right): Naked, Devotion, Shy, Fiery, Lavish, Dreamy
♥ Bottom Row Colours (left to right): Tranquil, Exposed, Reveal, Wink, Obsessed, Corrupt

Personally, I love the more metallic shades as I think they look so pretty on my eyes. I'm wearing Shy with Dreamy blended into it for a slightly soft smokey effect today and it is really nicely pigmented and it has worn really well all day, which is particularly impressive as it has been super hot and sticky today. I am already really impressed with this palette and I haven't even used all of the colours yet. If you haven't already, then I really recommend going out and getting yourself this, I know as soon as I next get the chance, I will be going back into Superdrug to get myself the 'Undressed' palette when it comes back in stock. 

As always, thank you all for reading and have a lovely weekend!

Q11: If you won the lottery what would you do with the money? 

Here are my answers to Little Miss Pipdream's questions:

Q1: Why did you start blogging? 
I started my blog because I was so inspired by other bloggers and youtubers such as Zoella, Tanya and Louise and their gorgeous blogs that I decided it might be something I would enjoy seeing as I love beauty and I love writing! 

Q2: The movie that changed you (or got close to)? 
I'm going to have to say my favourite film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's such a beautiful film and I can't describe how it had an impact on my life, but it just really did. So if any of you guys haven't yet seen it then definitely go and give it a watch! 

Q3: Favourite sweets?
I'm not actually the biggest fan of sweets, I'm more of a chocolate person really. However I am partial to those really fizzy strawberry laces that you can get in Sainsburys, especially when I'm travelling in the car or by train

Q4: Do you do any sports?
I would so love to say yes, but I can't. I really am not a sporty person.. I do enjoy exercise, but I suck at sport and pretty much always have. I did used to horseride when I was younger for 6 years, but I had to stop that due to schoolwork and expense

Q5: What is the place of the world that you believe is made just for you?
There's a beach somewhere in Anglesey in Wales where I went about 4 or 5 years ago with my family, and one night I went down there at sunset ahead of my parents with my iPod in really loudly. I sat on the pebbles on the beach and made a heart out of sand whilst watching the sunset, and I have honestly never been so relaxed in my life. So I would probably say that beach  

Q6: Favourite beverage?
Non-Alcoholic: Tea 
Alcoholic: Pimms (especially the limited edition Blackberry and Elderflower - yum yum) 

Q7: What were your best holidays ever? ..And now tell us why!
My all time favourite holiday would probably have to be Sri Lanka. Purely because it was so amazing and I saw so many things I never thought I would see, and learnt so much about the culture that it just blew my mind! 

Q8: Last concert you've been to?
I'm pretty sure that it was Slam Dunk festival which I went to with my boyfriend, where there was a number of bands such as Sleeping With Sirens, Deaf Havana and Kids In Glass Houses. It was fab

Q9: A childhood memory..?
This is totally random but it's the first one that I can think of. I must have been about 5, and we had driven to my uncle's house for his 40th birthday party, and I had been asleep in the car all the way there but when I woke up we were there but my parents had obviously already got out of the car and left me in there with the doors locked.. I thought they had just abandoned me and cried for about half an hour before they came back for me - great parenting guys!

Q10: Do you sing and/or dance under the shower?
Oh yes, loudly and badly

Q11: Last trip?
That would be to Durham. It's only an hour or so from where I live, but it was with  my friend so we could look at the university and it was a nice day out, it's such a gorgeous place that means a lot to me

Can't wait to read your answers! Thanks again to Little Miss Pipedream for nominating me for this!
