Maybelline Master Shape brow pencil - review

I'm always on the look out for a good eyebrow pencil as my eyebrows naturally don't match my hair colour very well, it's pretty hard to find a colour that suits me. My eyebrows are quite ashy toned and I find a lot of hazel brow pencils to be very orange. However, this pencil in 'dark blonde' is a great colour for me! I think this would suit people with blonde hair, red hair and maybe even a light brunette. It looks incredibly natural even when going for a strong brow look. The formula is very waxy which means that it has great staying power, however, I do like to use a brow mascara over the top and sometimes powder to make sure it really stays put! 
The biggest negative to this product is how quickly it runs out! After every couple of uses I have to sharpen it and to get a good point takes a lot of product away. Within about a month it was all gone and I don't use it every day. It's pretty annoying but the pencil only costs £2.99 and I do love it, so it's something I can live with!
 Have you tried this eyebrow pencil or any other good ones? Let me know!

MUA 'Undress Me Too' palette

I picked this up from Superdrug a month or so ago after hearing some great reviews about it. This palette is a dupe for Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette, only at a fraction of the price! These eye shadows have amazing pigmentation, staying power and a lovely creamy powder consistency. The colours are very very near to the originals and very good quality.
The biggest negative I can think of is that it's easy to use up, a lot of product comes off in one use but I wouldn't expect much more from a £4 palette! Having said that, the one eye shadow shade that has hit pan is one that I use daily (so it's not that surprising!)
I would also recommend using an eye primer, if you have more oily eyelids as they will slip and slide because of the creaminess. This is a great day to night palette as it comes with 2 natural looking matte shades. The coverage is also quite build-able so you can wear a shimmery eye shadow with out it being too much during the day!
I will definitely continue to buy these and will definitely be buying the 'Undressed' palette (a copy of the first Naked palette) when I can!

Have you tried any of these palettes or good Naked palette dupes? Let me know! xx
