Look using MUA Undressed palette & new Avon foundation


Almost the weekend, whee!

I did a look with the MUA Undressed palette today to see how it compares to the Urban Decay Naked palette.

Top row L-R = Shades 1-6
Bottom row L-R = Shades 7-12

I used Shade 1 as a highlight under my brows
I used Shade 2 on the inner corners of my eyes
I used Shade 8 on the main part of my eyes and blended outwards
I used Shade 11 on the outer corners of my eyes blended up and out

I also used:
Avon Supershock Max mascara in black
Avon Supershock gel eyeliner in black (on waterline)
MUA bronzer shade 2 as contour
e.l.f. blusher 'Glow'
MUA lipgloss Shade 1

So, how do they compare?

The colours may be pretty similar to those in the Naked palette, but they're not as pigmented. I needed to use more product to get the same effect as I would when using Naked. Having said that, at a fraction of the price, using more product is no issue for me. It may be an issue for you if you're time-limited, as obviously more product application means more time.

I'm using a new foundation. Avon were doing a deal last week where I got a foundation, a mascara and an eyeliner for £12 when it should've cost £30 in total. I read the reviews on Avon and this foundation seemed to be highly rated. I didn't have high hopes as every foundation thus far has been too dark for me (underneath the freckles and ruddy red cheeks my skin is actually ghostly.) Never fear, Avon to the rescue. This foundation is amazing. A little goes a LONG way (I can do my whole face on less than one pump), it hides redness brilliantly and the shade light pink is perfect for me. I didn't need to use any concealer at all. It feels moisturising. The only place on my face it stuck to some dry skin was between my eyebrows, which is always parched as I pluck there regularly to stop the monobrow taking over my face. Ha.

(Edit, I discovered Avon test on animals now so I no longer buy from them.)
