Ever since I saw swatches of MUA Eyeshadow popping up on several blogs, I was dying to try them out. Finally I decided to buy one of their palettes on ebay.

I choose the Immaculate Collection, which is a 24 shadow palette, cause that one offered the most oppertunities in trying out colors for me.

Here’s what the baby looks like:

I swatched some of the colors on my finger and the pigmentation is really great. The only colors I wasn’t too impressed with are the matte brown and the matte purple. Those two are so hard pressed, that you barely get some color payoff. Some of the more glittery colors are a bit “crumbly” but overall I really like the palette.

Here are the color close-ups:

Pretty aren’t they? I would have done swatches, but my camera wouldn’t really pick them up that well.

I bought this palette on ebay.co.uk for 11,99 GBP, you can find it and all the other ones by typing in “MUA palette” in the search field.

Here I am back with none other then… the Haul! 🙂

I was litterly more shopping then writing, so I’ show you what I got recently…

Essence Eau de Toilette “Like a Trip to New York” >>> 2,99 €

Paris Hilton Passport Eau de Toilette “South Beach” >>> 4,90 €

Body Shop Raspberry Ripple Shower Gel >>> 3,- €

Body Shop Lily Cole Pearl Radiance Primer >>> 10,- €

NYX “Bohemian Rhapsody” 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette >>> 9,95 €

Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow ” Rich Aubergine” & “Aqua Turquoise” >>> each 3,95 €

Essence Fix & Matte translucent loose powder >>> 3,99 €

The perfumes are pretty cute. I have one of the Paris Hilton Passport ones in a bigger size already. The Essence one is also available in 50ml size, but I decided for the smaller ones, cause I think they will be perfect for the purse.

Here are the eyeshadows up close:

Manhattan “Aqua Turquoise” & “Rich Aubergine”

NYX “Bohemian Rhapsody” Palette

A side note: When NYX products finally arrived in German stores some time ago, the prices were ridiculous high for a drugstore product. The price for this palette would have been 46,- € (!!!!!), a lipgloss would have been 15,- € and a nail polish 14,- €! Those prices would have been comparable to MAC. After a lot of people complained about the prices they ended up changing them into more affordable ones. So 9,95 € for this palette is a good deal I think.

Since I have some days off, I’ll post another Haul tomorrow. And guess what it is??? … All right, you got me. It’s NAIL POLISH!!! 🙂
