Make Up For Ever 15-Artist Shadow Palette for Holiday 2015


This week I’m going to be comparing two holiday palettes: one from Make Up For Ever, and the other from Urban Decay (Vice 4). I’m not typically one to go crazy over the holiday sets and palettes, but this year these two palettes really caught my eye!

I am a huge fan of the Artist Shadow formula, and love the neutral palette. This one seemed like it had more shade variety. After seeing them in person side by side, I was able to justify the purchase, as I didn’t find them super similar.

MUFE3This palette contains 15 shades ranging from neutrals to bright colors. There are NO matte shadows in this palette, so if that is a must-have thing for you, this may not be a welcome addition to your makeup stash. Personally, I don’t care that it doesn’t have mattes in it, since I have plenty otherwise.

The construction of the palette is incredible. I love the bright orange packaging, and it is VERY sturdy, despite being made out of cardboard. It has a large mirror inside of it and a magnetic clasp.

MUFE5I didn’t swatch every shade, but did swatch most of the vibrant colors. Every shadow is the smooth formula I have come to expect from MUFE. Plus, buying this palette is SO much more affordable than purchasing shades individually.

If you’re not familiar with the formula, the texture of MUFE shadows is pretty unique. They feel like a gel but go on like a powder. Because of this, they are very smooth.

MUFE2I didn’t know what shade I wanted to wear first, so I had my husband choose. He went with the bright blue color, because his soccer team was playing. πŸ™‚ I love how bright this shade is!

MUFE4All of the other shadows I’m wearing are from the MUFE palette, so it is possible to achieve looks without a matte color. The palette also comes with a booklet that has different ideas in it for makeup looks.

This palette is $59; I was too impatient to wait for the Sephora VIB sale. πŸ˜‰ The Urban Decay Vice 4 palette is $60, but comes with 20 shades instead of 15 (more on that later). Both palettes are limited edition. When I purchased mine, the sales clerk actually said that she was hiding it because employees kept purchasing it, so I expect that it is going to sell out quickly.

Overall, a BIG THUMBS UP for this palette. πŸ™‚

  1. I really love the MUFE eye shadows but I’m a more neutral shadow girl! These are pretty but not really my cup of tea. They look great on you though πŸ™‚
