I have this in the aptly named Nudes You Need palette. While I do like the squared shape of MUFE's reformulated eyeshadows since they fit more neatly into a Z palette, I cannot for the life of me understand why they changed the actual formula of the shadows as most are inferior to and also different from their predecessors with the same names and numbers. Iced Brown (I hate the numbering system) is a lovely lighter toned golden brown with an icy sheen and delicious texture. It's such an easy shade to wear and works well as a "one and done" shadow or on the outer lid with something lighter on the inner corner. I am so glad I have this in the old formula and in that wonderful palette. I found one on sale about a year ago at Marshalls and immediately grabbed it for my daughter.

I was so glad to be able to grab this beautiful neutral just before the "old" formula was pulled and replaced by the new - and often weaker - formula. It is pretty much as the name suggests - a khaki brown shade (a wonderful melange of olive and brown) with a flattering sheen. So nice and such a shame that its replacement isn't nearly as nice.

When MUFE launched their newly reformulated eyeshadows a few years ago, I went a bit "overboard" buying them and it sort of goes without saying that I loaded up on the sorts of neutrals that are pretty much the core of my collection but they are the shades I use 99% of the time. I think Olive Gray was one of my very first purchases and I may even have 2 of these (a single and in the Nudes You Need palette?). This is a great eyeshadow that can be applied more heavily for a slightly darker look or more lightly for an every day, easy look. This shadow is one of those wonderful "one and done" shades because you can use it lightly across the lid, more heavily in the crease/outer corner and then blend it and buff it out to almost nothing toward the brow bone.

A really lovely pale warm green. I love using this with M322 Khaki (matte) in the crease for some depth, also just by itself with some black liner for a simple neutral-with-a-twist look. Haven't tried it yet with other colours but I think it will look great with purples and golds. Need very little product and blends beautifully.

This is one of those "Christine made me buy it" purchases. I got this in September/14, when these first hit the Sephora stores in Canada. The colour is a gorgeous smokey/murky green and the texture and quality are superb. I also love that at least at Sephora, the more shadows you buy, the lower the individual price (you save a considerable amount when you buy 3 at a time rather than buying them one-at-a-time) and that it's easy to customize palettes to your preference (though I do wish they had a 4 or 6 pan palette available). If I had a complaint, it would be that there is almost too much product for people like me, who never even hit pan on smaller eyeshadows. I'd prefer a smaller pan and a somewhat lower price. But that's a minor quibble.

Taupe Gray is one of the first 2 shadows I purchased from MUFE's new release of shades. I wanted to see the shadows in store (rather than taking a chance on ordering online from swatches I'd seen) and I got this shade mostly because the one I REALLY wanted (Platinum Taupe, I think it's called) was one they don't carry in-store at the Sephoras near me so I'll have to order it online. Anyway....I digress. I purchased Taupe Grey, which is a Satin finish. It's almost matte, just with a bit more "life" to it and this is a great neutral shade - the perfect balance between grey and light, cool brown. It isn't all that super-exciting but it is one of those shadows that I find myself reaching for on an almost daily basis, either as a subtle crease shade or a blending colour. Not too dark, not too light; not too cool, not too warm - as Goldilocks might say, "just right". If anything, rather than "too little product", I feel you get too much with these. I wish they were smaller and with a smaller price tag so I could indulge in more than just 4 or 5 shadows.
