New MUA Artiste Collection | Review + Swatches

This was a palette that I just had to have from MUA. I am a keen MUA fan as they fit right into my budget and I don't think I can contain myself with excitement because of all the new things they are bringing out! I have acquired many MUA palettes over the last few months I definitely intend on getting more, obsessed? 

 The Artiste Collection features 6 merged eyeshadow, two blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter making it the perfect travelling or on the go palette! 
 Without a base
 With the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base
The eyeshadows in this palette are pigmented, as usual, but also still very chalky when you pick them up on your brush. They aren't chalky on your eyelid but they are in the pan making quite a mess in your palette. They last all day with a primer/base and are generally quite similar to MUA's other eyeshadows. On the last eyeshadow as I have used it the merged parts of it have seemed to have rubbed off. Generally when you pick up colour on your brush you just get the main colour in the pan. 

The blushes are also reasonably pigmented, the first one isn't as pigmented as I would have hoped but it will do nicely for my fair complexion. The bronzer is quite dark and orangey and is definitely too dark for my skin unless I spent a while doing some serious blending. The highlighter is a lovely shimmery rose colour which looks lovely on the skin, it catches the light nicely.

One thing that I love about this palette is the the eyeshadows, blushes etc all have names on the back! This makes it easier for bloggers/vloggers especially to refer to them in posts, tutorial etc.

Overall I am happy with this palette. However some of the colours aren't as pigmented as I would have loved and the eyeshadows are still chalky. I would recommend it to people though.

The Artiste Collection is £6 and its available to purchase in selected superdrugs or at muastore.com

Do you like the look of the artiste collection and if you have tried it what did you think?

  1. i just ordered a mua eyeshadow palette, the warm brown/neutral coloured one! happy to read this to see i should use a base! this is a great find, good colours! :) xx


    1. Ooo, the heaven and earth or the undressed palette, i have both and love them! Definitely use a base to get the most colour out of them :) xx

  2. The palette looks so pretty :) Shame about the chalkiness though! Would have been a perfect palette xx


    1. Yeah, I find the eyeshadows are pigmented but chalky in all the palettes I own, for the price I can see past that though xx

  3. these look really nice! I've just bought the nail consilations! can't wait to try hehe xx NEED OUR SHOPPING TRIP! xx

  4. I like the 2 on the far left (the green and gold colours). Very unique colours.

  5. Not sure if I'm the only one, but I really wasn't impressed when I saw this palette. Don't think it's the best palette from MUA xx

    1. Its definitely not their best, like i said the colours needed to be a bit more pigmented and the formula is still chalky, i still prefer my undressed palette over this xx

  6. Thank you for this review, I've been looking for one since the product came out.
