MUA | Rhapsody Palette | Eye & Face | Makeup Academy

Last time I did a spot of shopping in Superdrug, I added the Rhapsody Palette from MUA to my basket. It was a new one I hadn't seen before and I was intrigued to see what it was like since it had both eye and face combination.
First Impression..
The Autumnal shades really stand out to me. I love natural warm tones and a touch of aubergine in my shadows is the perfect mix. The two face sections looked like they would be a perfect match for my skin tone, so this was an added bonus to the palette. Another feature that caught my eye, was the unusual shapes of the shadow sections. Adds something different to the look.

Tried & Tested..
Lets start with the two face compartments. The colours are slightly lighter when swatched and are a cream like texture. They're not extremely pigmented, so you do have to use a fair bit to get colour from them. Unfortunately, I'm not too keen on cream/liquid formula for a bronzer or highlighter, so these aren't of me. Although if you have fair skin and looking for something you can gradually build up, then these may be up your street.
The eyeshadow section contains 10 different shades. You have some light shades which work great as a highlight just below the brow bone. Neutral tones if you're looking for a "your lid but better" kind of shade and then your darker shades, for the more dramatic look. I have a few individual eyeshadows from MUA and I love them. The pigmentation from them is brilliant. While this palette does have a good level of pigmentation, I didn't find it to be as good. But they are build-able and the colours are lovely, so for the reason yes I would recommend it. 
Have you tried MUA before? I'm definitely a fan of the brand, but because of their low prices; know a few people will be put off from trying them. I can assure you, you do get your money's worth.

What's your current go to eye shadow palette?

  1. MUA & Makeup Revolution are amazing for affordable yet great palettes!! I love the design of this one, lovely. It's great that the shades are buildable. Plus, with a little bit of primer I'm sure this palette would be superb and wear well!
    I haven't been actually wearing eyeshadow for a while now (just go with mascara and a clean sleek wing) but I have been loving the MUA palette I won in your giveawa, beauty :)

  3. Literally couldn't believe it was MUA!!! It looks soooo good! I have two palettes and they are really good! Some shades are chalky, but that can be expected and I'm happy to work with it for the price they are!!


  4. I have a couple of MUA palettes and they are so good and the price is fantastic. The palette above looks gorgeous, lovely autumnal and winter colours.

    My go to palettes are palettes 2 & 3 from Younique.

  6. This palette looks so dreamy hun! I really love how MUA have combined face and eye make-up. I've bought a few MUA products before and have always been impressed with the value, especially considering the reasonable prices. There's a really fresh, clean, Autumnal feel to this pretty palette and it looks so promising. Glad you found the colours nice and build able, and it's nice ten shades are included. Such a lovely review! <3

  7. Shame they're not as pigmented as the other shadows but they still look fab. I especially love the look of the dark plum shade! xx

  8. MUA palettes are so perfect, the value for money is brilliant as is the quality, even if sometime the pigmentation is not so brilliant. I always find the glittery shades are great :)

  9. I have never tried this palette or any other product from MUA but I think it's about time to change that! The shades look lovely and I could really use another eyeshadow palette. My go-to-palettes are the TooFaced Chocolate Bar and the original Naked palette. xx
