A departure from MUA regular clear palettes MUA Luxe has announced it's arrival- with studs. The studs make this palette stand out and more importantly this contains a very big mirror inside.
There are 10 eye shadows in rectangular pans that are much like the layout in MUA's Smokin' palette. I love these rectangular pans since they contain more product. There are 6 satin eye shadows on top row and 4 mattes on the bottom row.  This palette has purple, plum, browns is marketed as 'pretty romance with gothic grunge.' This more luxurious line is priced is a little higher than the regular line and I think this paid for the more funky packaging and mirror.

These eye shadows are very soft and powdery so there is a fair bit of fallout. All the shadows are extremely pigmented. I didn't find the matte shadows chalky at all. The shades are very wearable suitable for daytime or smoked out at night. My favourite colours are Toile (lilac shade) and Ruffle (a metallic taupe grey.)
These eye shadows are long lasting. There was almost no difference between one eye with primer and eye shadow and one without the eye primer, the shadow looked pretty much the same 8 hours later than as when it was applied.
The colour Lace (burgundy left)  is very similar to Maybelline's 24 hour cream eye shadow in Pomegranate (far right). I also swatched it against Sleek's Vow in Venice in the Vintage Romance palette but it was pinker than lace.

Verdict- Great value, good mix of matte and satin and cool and warm shades. Very pigmented and long lasting. what more can you ask for?

You may like this if...you are on a budget, love romantic or autumn shades
