Is this the palette of dreams? I think so. Everything about it is beautiful; the packaging, the shades, the quality and the pigmentation of each shade. I've talked about Makeup Geek Shadows before and these are just a little extra special. I'll admit I don't know an awful lot about Manny MUA who collaborated with Makeup Geek on this palette but that doesn't make it any less special. I have since watched his Youtube channel; he's done a few tutorials on looks he's created with this palette and they are really handy to watch.
You get 9 shadows for £54 which is pretty expensive! I luckily picked up this palette from Beauty Bay when they had an offer on but it still made my bank account cry a little. Is it worth the money? That's a tough one, regular Makeup Geek shadows are £5.95 which means that for 9 shadows you'd be paying around £53 - less than the actual palette. But some of these shades are exclusive to the palette so I guess that's what you're paying for. You also get a mirror in the compact which makes it perfect for travelling as does the range of shades.
The top row consists of; Artemis- a white/cream shimmer, Beaches & Cream-peachy nude matte and Luna-a golden brown shimmer. Luna is my favourite from the top row, the colour is just beautiful. It looks perfect on it's own all over the lid and just as nice teamed with a matte brown in the crease and a smoked out reddy colour. The middle row is filled with more neutral shades. Cosmopolitan- is a golden copper and a shade I already own. Sora- dark beigey-brown colour (a good transition shade) and Frappe- another blogger fave and a deep brown for transitioning. The bottom row has the more stand out shades, the ones that really make the palette special. Insomnia- a duo chrome greeny brown (another fave), Mars- a matte red which makes the perfect smoked out shade and Aphrodite- a purpley brown matte.
If eyeshadow palettes are your thing, they are definitely mine (you can see my collection here) then I'd say add this to collection. If you're a big Manny MUA fan then again, add this to your stash but if you're just after a nice eyeshadow palette then I'd say this is a really beautiful palette but there are much cheaper palettes out there with similar colours.

  1. This is pretty much the perfect Autumnal palette the colours and even the packaging are great! It's a shame that it is so costly but at the same time i am looking for a good palette to pop on my Christmas list ;)

  3. I love Manny MUA and love the colours he's created with Makeup Geek - however i find £54.00 for a palette very expensive! I feel like the packaging isn't very high end for such an expensive price tag! The colours are beautiful though and i would love to try them!

    1. I agree with everything you said, the packaging is okay but nothing special. You can't compare it to something like Hourglass whose packaging is always 100% xo
