MUA Eyeshadows: Swatches and review

Hello Gorgeous
So I just managed to get on to my blog and catch up with a few bits and bobs. Once I get started I always manage to find more work for myself...
I am a huge advocate of having a mixed wardrobe. What this means is I will try out things regardless of the price if I think they will benefit me.
MUA is one of those brands that sit quite nicely with me in terms of their product range and pricing.  I would vertainly suggest any one starting out in makeup to go over to any MUA stand and pick up one of everything. For the price and the quality you really cannot go wrong.
Today's post will be on some of the single eyeshadows that I have in my collection from MUA.

SHADES:    25 Pearl
                 12 Pearl
                 1   Pearl
                  27 Pearl
                  30 Pearl
                  28 Pearl
My thoughts: These single eyeshadows come in at £1 a pot. First of all that is a bargain!! The consistency of these shadows is highly pigmented and I believe with a good blending brush these can look extremely high end. As a makeup artist I believe it is how you apply and not what you apply.
These can feel a bit chalky at times however do not let that put you off. the colour payoff is brilliant and I have always worn a eye primer underneath hence they last as long as I want them too.
The packaging is simple and plain and sturdy enough. I would not buy this for the packagin anyway at this price. The only thing that bugs me about MUA is that they do not name products. I simply cannot get numbers around my head and love the sound of weird and funky names for makeup products.
You can pick up these eyeshadows from Superdrug or the MUA website.
Overall I recommend these and think every woman should own one of these bad boys.
Stay Good
Do you own any of these single shadows? If so which ones do you recommend??



  1. Have tried MUA eyeshadow palettes and quite like them. I find they only show up lots of pigment with a sponge applicator and not with brushes!

    1. I agree that you have to play around with these eyeshadows to get the best payoff. Wetting a brush does the job for me :)
