Hey guys! Today's blog post is going to be a review and swatch of MUA's Elysium palette! If you read my what I got for my 20th birthday post you will have seen a received this from my friend for my birthday and I wanted to do a review of it. Also, can I just say, I'm writing this at 5 and it's light outside still I can't believe it! I love watching the nights stay lighter for longer and not waking up at 8 and it still being pitch black. I am so excited for summer. Anyway on with the review.
First of all, I really like the layout of the palette, kind of split into a "day" and "night" section which I think is the point but I love matching the colours. I love these colours too, my favourite two are the two browny matte crease colours in Charm and Refine they're so lovely for a transition or crease colour. I also love the dark pink colour Astral. The only colour I am not a fan of is the light pink colour Cherub as I don't find it as pigmented as the others (you'll see what I mean in the swatches) but the other ones are so pigmented and blend so well.
This palette also comes with an eyeliner and highlighter both of which seem really good. I prefer to highlight with a shadow and to eyeline with my Rimmel kohl but I still like it in this palette as it makes it really nice to travel with. You can create a lot of different looks with this palette too and it's been really fun to experiment with.
I have done some swatches of this palette, first of all the "day section"
This is the "night" side of the palette! These colours are a lot darker so they can be seen more!
I Also thought I'd swatch the eyeliner and highlighter,
I hope you enjoyed this post! Have you tried this palette? You can follow me on twitter @ellie_smithxo or instagram @littleblogsfromlittlepeople to find out when I post and more!
