MUFE Artist Palette

After hearing a lot of great things about MUFE's Artist Palette, I finally decided to pick one up this month. I've never really tried their products before, aside from their foundation that everyone likes, so I was eager to get my hands on some eye shadow. (And with Sephora's flash shipping membership, I didn't have to spend hours trying to bump up my order to exactly $50.)

The first thing I noticed about it was that it was small:


I don't know why, in my head, I was thinking it'd be about the size of Kat Von D's old palettes. Maybe because that's what the inside of the palette reminds me of. It's actually small, but hey - I don't mind, I guess. I've already got plenty of large palettes that don't travel well.

The package art on the top feels slightly gummy, like those puffy stickers you might have gotten as a kid. (Which I like.) It's also glittery like puffy stickers :) Inside are eight shadows (and two tiny brushes, which I removed for the photo):


MUFE's Artist Shadows are identified by finish, so here's what's in this palette, from left to right:

M-536 - Matte "Milk Tea," which is kind of tan
I-524 - Iridescent "Pinky Beige" Speaks for itself.
I-550 - Iridescent "Olive Gray," which just looked warm-taupey on me
D-652 - Diamond "Celestial Earth," which is a warm, bronzey brown
ME-728 - Metallic "Copper Red," though it doesn't seem very much on the red side to me.
ME-230 - Metallic "Peacock Blue"
D-926 - Diamond "Blueberry," though really, it's a darker lavender
ME-930 - Metallic "Black Purple"

Swatches, in order as listed/shown above:




These are all available individually, by the way.

So, it's a nice mix of colors, a bit on the warm side, which is fine for me, but not for everyone. They're smooth and buttery, and very easy to work with. I got minimal fallout (if any) from the "Diamond" shades, which are glittery. They wore well all day (on top of a primer - I always use primer).  Seriously, this is a great palette, and a great introduction for me to MUFE.
