Review: MUA Fire Vixen Palette


I was shopping for Black Friday and suddenly I bumped into this beautiful, low-budget eyeshadow palette. The bright red and orange colours just spoke to me immediately and I had to have it! So, I bought it. Today I’m going to show you some swatches and a look done with the palette and I’ll give you my opinion about it.


Let’s start off with the container. To me, the shiny black/see-through lid looks a bit cheap, but for the price you pay for it that shouldn’t be your greatest concern. I am more curious about the eyeshadows themselves.


More about the palette itself. It’s one out of the three “15 shades palettes” of MUA. They came up with two other colour combinations: Matte Feather, with only matte, neutral colours, and Light Heavenly Neutral, with neautral matte and shimmery shadows. This palette consists of 15 very different shades. There are 7 shimmery shadows and 8 matte ones. There are a couple very neutral colours, but also a couple that just pop right out of the palette. I really like the variety in this palette, it makes sure you can do a lot of different things with it.

Now over to the swatches. I swatched the colours in groups of five, just like in the palette. I included a picture without flash and a picture with, because I really wanted to show how nice the glittery shades are.

I really love the pigmentation in this palette. I think some of the matte shades could have been a bit more pigmented, but price-quality wise it doesn’t dissapoint. Colour number 10 (the brown glitter shade) is so amazingly pigmented and so beautiful, I couldn’t take my eyes of it! I also love how the red colour just pops of my skin. The formula feels very nice, especially the shimmery shades are extremely creamy.


And this is the look I made with the colours. For this look I used colours 1, 6, 8, 12, 14 and 15. The colours are very easy to blend and you don’t wipe them away while blending. Also I barely experienced any fall-out, so that is amazing! The colours are just very easy to work with and there’s a lot of variety in the palette. I’m just very happy with this buy! If you’re looking for a low-budget, but high-quality eyeshadow palette, you should definitely give the 15 shades palettes from MUA a try!

You can get this palette online for about €6,99, or in the Netherlands at Kruidvat.
