When I first saw that MUA were bringing out the Elysium Palette, I knew I had to have it! The colours in this little palette looked incredible - all soft pinks with some shimmers, something that I think works gorgeously with us ladies that have pale skin! I recently was in Meadowhall doing a bit of shopping before my eyebrow appointment with Benefit, and I popping into Superdrug just to have a look around when I spotted one of these palettes left - I had no idea that they had already been released, so when I saw that there was only one left on the entire MUA stand, I grabbed it with both hands and swiftly made my way to the til point to make this baby mine.
One thing that I really liked with this palette as soon as I saw it was that MUA have finally listened to everyone and haven't included one of those foam applicator "brushes" that so many companies include with their palettes. Instead, they have included a double ended eyeliner with incredible pigmentation and staying power. On one end of the pencil there is a deep black and on the other end there is a peachy nude shade, which again stays put once applied. This is definitely a welcome change, and I am very impressed with the quality of them as well.
