MUA LUXE Utopia Palette Review & Swatches

Hi guys,  today I’ll be reviewing the first ever eyeshadow palette that came into my vanity. Its the Makeup Academy Luxe Utopia palette. I fell in love the moment I saw this palette and I knew that I  had to buy it because the colours are just so beautiful. It felt like all the colors that I ever wanted had just came together in a palette 🙂



Price: Rs 1550 on nykaa.com (Currently at a 10% discount)

Description:  These silk, metallic shades offset light & darker tones to create a stunning 10 shade palette. Each lustrous PEARL shade can be layered for an intensified, stylish look or singularly for a subtle, delicate veil.



The eyeshadow comes in a black rectangular packaging and it is actually quite small than the rest of my palettes. There is no separation between the eyeshadows so it makes it very easy to just swirl your brush in the palette and create your own color. It also comes with a mirror but none of that horrible brushes that are usually included in the palettes.



The palette only contains shimmery shades and there is no matte shade. The colors are simply beautiful and you can create a ton of different looks but since it does not have any matte shade, you would have to use some other palette/color for the crease.

The texture of the eyeshadows is quite smooth and they also blend very easily which is a plus. The pigmentation is ,however, not that great. You need to use an eyeshadow primer underneath to get a good color payoff. Using a wet brush with these shadows certainly gives better intensity.


With a primer, it stayed upto 5 hrs on my lid with just a little bit of fading but nothing major. The fallout also is very less but some of the eyeshadows are a bit more powdery than the others.


The shades don’t have any names or numbers so I’ll be mentioning them from left to right.(The color payoff in the pictures has been achieved after 2-3 swatches)

SHADE1- This is a white pearly color perfect for highlighting the brow bone or the inner corner.

SHADE2-This is a light golden eyeshadow, good for the eyelids and for those Indian parties.

SHADE3-This is a shimmery champagne color, looks very pretty on the lids but can also be used as a highlight.

SHADE4- A deep burnt orange orange color

SHADE5- This is a very pretty concoction of orange and pink, a very unique shade and a very beautiful lid color

SHADE6-This is the only dark shade in  the palette, a bronze color with a hint of golden shimmer.

SHADE7- Its a dark golden eyeshadow, just a tad bit darker than shade2

SHADE8-One of my favorites from the palette, its a pretty duochrome of pink and golden

SHADE9- This is like a silver  eyeshadow with some purple undertones

SHADE10- This is my favorite from the entire palette. Its a rose gold pink color which looks very nice with Indian outfit.
