MUD Cares Palette to Benefit Children in Africa AND It’s Really Pigmented!

MUD CARES PALETTE ($25.00) is a quad of eyeshadows developed and created by Makeup Designory (you know, the school!).  Not only that, but this palette donates 100% of the proceeds towards building homes for children in Africa who have been orphaned by AIDS.

Palette colors:

Spanish Gold Warm, amber brown

Dulce de Leche Soft brown-based pink

Cashmere Medium beige with coffee warmth

Moss Golden olive green with gold flecks

What really impressed me about the palette was how utterly pigmented each of the colors were.  They really are true-to-color and go on like a dream.  Soft and finely milled with just a touch of shimmer/sheen.  It’s more a sheen than true shimmer, but they’re definitely not matte shadows.  I can really see this palette working for most skin tones and complexions; it just has a good mix of colors that have enough depth to really have fun with.

Plus, MUD offers these tips on using it (how awesome is that?):

Great on all skin tones
Mix Spanish Gold with Moss to create a rich liner
Use a sheer swipe of Cashmere for a touch of warmth
Use Dulce de Leche as a highlight for a dimensional effect
Use with Black Eye Pencil and Black Cream Mascara for a dramatic evening look
Use #330 Shadow Fluff Brush for a brilliant sweep of color on the entire lid
Use #330, #350 or #800 Brush to blend and define the crease
Use the fine sharp angle of #210 Angle Liner Brush to apply along upper and lower lash lines as a liner or to achieve natural hair strokes on eyebrows
Use #810 Smudger Brush to smudge or smoke out eye liner or crease color
Use #320 Shadow Brush to apply to the center of the lid
Use #300 or #350 Brush to blend and highlight the brow bone
