I have been picking up my Burning Embers palette (£8.00) up every time I haven’t been sure what look to go for and I have been playing with it so much.
This popped on to my radar when the lovely Vicky from Beauty Breaks with Vicky spoke about it on her YouTube channel and blog and I had been searching for it since.
About a month ago I found it at Superdrug (it feels like it was out of stock for ages!) and I was so happy to finally have it in my possession.
This palette holds 25 shadows, 12 of which are matte shadows and the rest are shimmers / metallics / duochrome shadows.
I haven’t any other MUA palettes in my collection as I have swatched a few in store and haven’t been majorly impressed by the quality….till now.
This also felt like a real springtime palette – all picks and rosey tones.
What can I tell you about this palette:
- The consistency of the powders varies with the mattes being quite powdery and the metallics are almost wet.
- The shades are pretty unique. There is a white duochrome pinky/purple which you can only really use on top of other shadows to change up.
- It’s not like your normal warm palettes with there being reddy pinks rather than burnt oranges.
- Although it’s a small price it is actually rather good quality
- On top of primer these last all day (although on me most shadows last all day on primer)
As you can see the quality is there for sure.
I used a black shadow stick on my lids and the duochrome on top and it created such a beautiful look. I also used the shadow on my lips which is lovely for making a different sort of ombre lip.
Have you tried this palette from MUA yet?
Are there any looks you think you would create with this?
Any MUA palettes you would recommend? Having tried this I really love the shadows and would be tempted to try another one.
I love this palette. I have quite a few palettes from MUA and think for the price they are good

I love MUA’s eyeshadow primer but haven’t tried their palettes. This looks great! I agree, there’s a lot of warm/orange toned palettes out there so this is a bit different.

I’ve not heard of this before but I think I’m in love with it! For just £8 this is amazing value and the colours and pigmentation look fab! x

This palette is just beautiful and the price is really amazing for all of the shadows included and the quality of them. I don’t have any MUA palettes, but I am quite tempted to pick this one up. I love the look you have created here…gorgeous x
This palette looks great and I am in love with some of those shades. MUA have some fantastic products!

That is a lovely palette with some really pretty and sparkly shades and it seems they are well pigmented too which is good.

I have a question is MUA cruelty free I wasn’t sure? On another note the swatches are so pigmented and I love that purple lip and eyeshadow look you created x
I have never tried anything from the Mua brand. Those swatches look awesome! I am however an extreme warm tones lover but I’m always willing to try something new!
Ali Rost says
What beautiful shades! I’ve never purchased a MUA palette .. but if I see one I think I’ll give it a try. You look so pretty with the look you’ve created
Those look so pretty
Wow, so many colors to choose from the palette. Will definitely love to have a palette like this. The shades are beautiful!
Rachel Hutchinson says
Great review, the swatches look really buttery and pigmented. And such a great price too ????
Rhian Westbury says
That’s the first MUA palette I’ve seen in a while which looks really good. I love the mixture of matte and shimmer shades x
That’s a really pretty palette. I always try to wear soft pink colours like this in the spring.
No, I have not tried this before. I like smokey eyes 🙂 x
I have always loved purple shades in my makeup palette. It’s great to read that you get both matte and shimmery shades when you buy this palette. It’s perfect for both day and night!
These shades look great for spring summer, and such good value too!
angela milnes says
Such a beautiful palette and I love all the shades my favorite are shimmer shades, Glad you share this
Ooh I love the mix of shades in this palette. MUA aren’t a brand i’d really gravitate towards but I think the shadows actually look beautiful and really pigmented! xxx
25 colours for £8!? What an absolute bargain!
What a beautiful palette! £8 as well, what a bargain. Great review x
Nadine Cathleen says
The glamorous and sparkly colours are so pretty! Great colour pallette!
I just the metallic elements of this palette, and for £8 it is an absolute steal.
This is so beautiful ❤ one of the best buys I ever did xx
I haven’t tried out any MUA eyeshadows yet but really want to! I can’t believe how amazing the pigmentation is in your swatches!
