Going For Gold with MUA // Limited Edition

Going For Gold is the latest purse friendly palette to launch from MUA. To celebrate the 2012 London Olympics MUA have created this limited edition palette of 10 shimmery shades for their usual purse friendly £4.
Instead of the usual 12 round pans of eyeshadow, MUA have gave the palette a new look with 10 square pans, which I'm definitely a fan of.
 I've been playing around with this palette all weekend and love all the shades. Whether you want to be subtle with your shimmering golds and sparkly silvers or you want to stand out from the crowd, there's a look for you.
I'm always impressed with MUA shadows, because they're so cheap, my favourite shades of the palette are shades 3,8 and 9, plus I haven't experienced any fall out, just soft, silky shadows, with plenty of staying power.

  8. I love the look of this although I don't think I'd use it very much myself. It's nice to see brands like MUA and Sleek making palettes to match the Olympics xo

  11. This looks great, I would wear every single shade in this palette and that's a rarity! I love golds, and this has a really good selection of complementary colours. Love that MUA palettes are such a bargain!
    Is this what you were tweeting had arrived in the post the other day?

  13. I love MUA but I think this is the only palette they've brought out that doesnt appeal to me! Its a bit too gold in my opinion but I can see why other people love it! xx
