I am very excited to be revealing more of the NEW MUA Professional Palette! This palette definitely lives up to the hype over the weekend of us revealing it on our Facebook page. We can finally reveal the collectable limited edition palette which is called ‘GOING FOR GOLD’ in ready for the Olympics held in London this year! Oh yes, we all like to get our patriotism on sometimes, MUA Towers has gone British mad this time!
This is a great way to celebrate the Olympics with your own going for gold eye shadows in nude warm gold’s, to bright yellows mixed with stunning matte slate greys! And what is even more exciting is the design of the palette is square eye shadows! I just love this- what do you think of this design do you prefer it to the original circle eye shadows? I would love to know your thoughts. This palette makes me feel proud to be British and I can’t wait to show you eye looks with it.
All shades from going gold are a mix of shimmers and mattes like the original MUA eye shadow palettes however this time there are 10 shades then the normal 12 shade palettes. While I imagine one might find this product incredibly useful now that the simultaneous gold-silver eye shadow look is "in", I some of you might be worried about some of the shades being too bright in your make-up bags however these are practical/wearable shades for an everyday look as well as teaming up with a smoky eye for a glamorous night out around the Olympic time. Can’t wait till you get your hands on MUA’s NEW Going for Gold Palette? Well we are giving you the chance to *WIN* this palette, to take part in the competition all you have to do is follow this blog via Google Friend Connect and at the bottom of my blog post, tell me what GOING FOR GOLD Eye make-up look you would create for the Olympics with this NEW Palette. The best comment will be picked and the winner be announced on the 4th July 2012. Competition closes midnight on the 3rd July 2012.

I am so excited about the shades and pigmentation of these colours in this palette especially as it’s so hard for me to find real yellow gold shades with a fantastic pay off! So again MUA have done me proud as usual and all shades in this palette are buttery, smooth and a just glide so easily onto my eyelids! Shade 5 is just my favourite out of this palette- It’s just a perfect bright yellow gold, actually don’t think I have ever tried an eye shadow this shade before and trust me I have many, many eye shadow colours in my make-up collection. I will be wearing this palette all throughout the Olympics now.
Using a the MUA primer will provide a good solid 8-9 hours of wear and this also brings out the pigments even stronger than they actually are!
When can I purchase GOING FOR GOLD?
