MUA - Artiste Collection Palette

These swatches have been long overdue! I have been meaning to swatch these palettes and share them with you but I can never seem to find the time to do so with uni in the way along with my major bad habits of procrastination. With that aside, today I will be swatching the other eyeshadow palettes that I bought from my MUA haul.

First off will be The Artist Collection Palette.

The palette features six marbled eyeshadows, two blushes, one bronzer and one highlighter. The packaging is very slim and lightweight, like every other MUA palettes, made of cheap plastic. A double ended sponge applicator is also included. Very convenient for travelling purposes and for creating a full faced look. Plus the colours are gorgeous :)

Ingredients: Mica, Talc, Magnesium stearate, Ethylhexyl palmitate, Bis-diglyceryl polyacyladpate-1, Polybutene, Dimethicone, Propylparaben, Methylparaben

Pistachio - A very light shimmery aqua green with a deeper aqua marbling
Mocca - Shimmery white / silver toned shade with grey marbling
Ice - A bright blue shade with a light blue marbling
Grape - My favourite shade! A metallic purple with blue marbling and hints of pink
Chocolate - A metallic bronze with light brown marbling
Cookie - The only matte shadow in the palette - a reddish brown with pink marbling

Pink Sparkle - A matte bright coral pink with a bit of shimmer blush
Primrose - A matte deeper pink blush though I had so much trouble swatching cause of the rough texture
Bronzed - A light to medium brown; great for contouring though it's a bit powdery but easy to work with
Shimmer Kiss - Very shimmery light pink highlight

I can't comment on the longevity of these shadows as I haven't worn them but overall it is great for what it's worth. Colour payoff is decent and the colours are gorgeous. The only downside for me would be the blushes, especially Primrose, since the colour payoff wasn't as great and the texture wasn't as smooth.
