Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog post. Today I am reviewing the MUA Heaven and Earth Eye shadow Palette with swatches. I will be reviewing just how good or bad this product is. This palette actually came in a Glossybox, to whom I have subscribed to as their boxes are great value for money. You too may want to purchase one of these boxes once you have all the information and an honest opinion on just one of the products that I have acquired over the last three months of being a Glossybox subscriber.

What About The Product?
This is the Heaven and Earth eye shadow palette from MUA ( make up artist) it contains 12 neutral toned eye shadows as well as a sponge applicator. The eye shadows have a little bit of glitter through each of them, some more than others.
The colours are lovely and could be used to create either a day look or a night look. There are shades that are kind of skin coloured so could be used everyday rather than just for those big nights out. I really like the fact that you can use this everyday, you really get your moneys worth out of a palette if you are using it on daily basis. I have a couple of eye shadow palettes that have lovely colours but are sat around collecting dust as the colours are bit extreme for picking up the kids from school, or going in to the office, so I really appreciate a palette that I can use for as my everyday go to palette.
Here are swatches of the colours available.
Aurora which is the first colour on the first row, it is my fave, it is perfect for highlighting and looks lovely across the entire lid for an everyday fresh look.
As you can see some of the colours have a lot of glitter and others not so much. None of the colours in the palette are completely matte, so I would not recommend this product if matte shadows is something you are looking for. As highlighting, and highly pigmented shades are so popular at the moment MUA have done amazing at creating an on trend popular palette that can be used in everyday life and not just for the cat walk or club.
One thing I really have to highlight is just how awesome a highlighter the shades with more glitter in them are. Here is a picture of me using the MUA Heaven and Earth palette only, I have used no other eye shadows, or any other highlighters. For this effect I have used aurora which is the first colour in the palette, I also have arora spread across the entire lid with bedrock which is the last colour on the second row, on the outer corners of my lids, blended in in the centre with a little bit of Myan Dust which is the fourth colour on the first row. I would also consider using Myan Dust as a highlighter as well, it is pigmented enough to leave you with the same effect.

Although I received this in a beauty box along with other products, I know I can say that me personally using this palette will not affect my bank balance but at only £8 for a really useful palette, buying this for yourself wont leave a dent in your bank balance either. I have spent a lot more money on palettes that I have only used two or three times and then I am left wondering why I even bothered buying it at all. I am confident that I will not be left feeling deflated and a bit cheated with this palette.
To Buy Or Not To Buy??
If you are looking for matte eye shadows then I would not recommend this. However it is an amazing product if on trend popular items is your thing as highly pigmented colour and highlighting is extremely on point at the moment.
I would purchase this palette, if you are looking for a palette that you can use everyday, if you are looking for a palette that will take you from day time to night time, and if you are looking for a palette that is great value for money then this is definitely for you.
You could easily pop this in your handbag and take it with you either to touch up your make up throughout the day or if you are going straight from work to a night out this palette would be all you need, with the colours being pigmented enough to give a really really nice highlighting effect you would not have to bring your entire make up collection in order to go from day time desk look to night time siren.
