MUA ‘Going for Gold’

MUA Limited Edition ‘Going for Gold’ Eyeshadow Palette £4*

MUA have brought out a 10 shadow palette to celebrate…. can you guess? You know, those games that everyone’s going on about. 

The gold themed palette has a mix of shimmer shadows in the new square pans. As you can see, there’s golds, yellows, a bronze and a few shades of grey.

I definitely prefer the square pans to their usual circular one as it’s easier to cover the brush with product. There are a few shades in this palette that I would never wear, but there are definitely some nice ones too. Sorry the photo is a bit messy, unfortunately 2 of the pans came loose and it was a little smashed up when it got to me. It’s all a bit of fun to support the Olympics and for £4 you can’t really go wrong! The palette is now available on their online store.

What do you think of the new square pans? Do you prefer them now or how they were before?

    love the light gold shades, they’d be good for brown eyes, not sure i’d be able to pull off the orange shade though! x

  2. love this palette! need to check out the mua store, because I don’t have a pro store locally!:(

    I love some of the colours in this palette! I quite like the square pans, it looks like you get more product than in the round ones, but this could just be an optical illusion 🙂 xx

    I have this palette (a little smashed…!) and really enjoy using it too! Never thought about the pan format, but I slightly prefer the circular ones for some reason. Such a bargain too! xx

    I definitely think the square pans look better, it does seem like you get more product. not sure about some of the gold colours but the silver and bronze colours are nice!

  12. Deonne says:

    This is definitely worth a buy just for the fun of the olympics and its so cheap!

    I prefer the round pans myself, although it probably feels like you get more product for your buck this way, even if you don’t!

    Loving the tangerine colour, I might have to get one of those for myself! 😀

    Love the MUA palettes esp. the heaven and earth one x

    I am tempted by this palette as I like the colours, they look wearable and pretty. I have several other MUA palettes and love the pigmentation of the shades, they cover well and have great staying power. I slightly prefer the round pans – partly because you get 12 of them per palette rather than 10 as we have here! 🙂 xx

    I have to say I was a bit sceptical of MUA to start with as they were just too cheap to be good but there eye shadows last so well on me and are such fantastic colours. Loving the palette, may take myself down to Superdrug now.
