MUA The Artiste Collection - Reviewed!

This palette has been out for a few months now but I never felt the need to get it since I have so many palettes. When Superdrug had a deal on (which is still running!) where if you spent £6 you got this palette for free and couldn't pass up such a good bargain.
 The packaging is pretty basic but feels durable and that it wouldn't smash if you went traveling with it. What I like about the palette is that it includes 6 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter so it definitely saves space if you were packing light. 
The eyeshadows themselves have a marbled finish too them meaning they have a lovely sheen to them. A downside of this is that there is no matte shades.
Another problem with the shadows is that there is a lot of fall out, I find this mainly in the palette rather than on the eye. Also the marbled pattern seems to wear off after a few uses too.
The blushes have a little shimmer too them which doesn't look over top on the cheeks. Again these are a little chalky but nothing too bad. The bronzer is very pigmented and a little dark for my pale skin but it can be used as a eyeshadow. Finally the highlighter has a lovely pink sheen to it and looks very natural on the skin.
There's a good mix of shades to this palette but I would prefer to have more neutral colours because I don't tend to use blues and purples on an everyday basis but that's just personal preference. 
As you can see all the shadows and blushes are well pigmented and show up well on the skin. i find they last a good amount of time on me as well. I think this is a great palette especially for the price and I think it would be great for someone who has a small make-up collection because you are getting a good range of products for the price.

MUA The Artiste Collection retails for £6.00.
