I really want to try the MUFE shadows, but I’ve been cringing at the price, even with the Sephora 3 pan deal. I didn’t like the colors in the Studio Case kit and it was too bulky to carry around, but I’m REALLY hoping they come out with more kits, so I can pick some up.

the only thing is the quality of the palettes are never as good as the singles. and when u really think about it, the price is really good if u buy 3. in the states its $44 but you get 3 shadows which are double the size of mac shadows with much better quality. over time with collecting so much makeup i realized that its more worth it to save your money and buy quality things rather than have a palette with lots of quantity but some duds. save ur money and buy these. they are amazing (with the exception of the iridescent finish because it gets a hard top after one or two uses)

I honestly would love to dump about half of the MUFE shadows into my own personal paint box, but … okay, I was going to say price is a factor, but really, it’s size. My almost-daily choice for a work look for 2 years has been a pot of MAC Outre, and I’m just now running out of it. Just. Now. I’m sure from a “per gram” standpoint the MUFE shadows are worth it, but I already have shadows that will last me the rest of my life because, while I like them, I don’t use them every day. MUFE would make that even worse because of their size. I wish they’d come out with same-quality shadows at 1/2 or 2/3s of their current size.

Oh, I totally understand. $21 gets pricey for singles, and with such a large range like MUFE has, it’s painful to try to pick and choose. The amount you get is surely generous, but it’s unlikely most will actually get through a pan! I hope they’ll do more palettes – maybe one each season or something – so you can grab 6-8 colors for $40 instead of $100+.
