After a while away from the blogging world (I made my best friend change my password in an attempt to redeem myself in my exam revision) I did um and ah a bit over what to post next to get back into it.
So I settled firstly on a review (This was the intended produce of my blog anyhow!)
These are MUA (Makeup Academy) eyeshadows. They are sold in Superdrug stores in Britain and I think are native to these waters only. For those who have never come across MUA, it is a pretty cheap - but cheerful - small selection of makeup products, that would create a basic general face kit.
I first believed that all of their products were £1 (rookie error..) but you'll be happy to know that many of them are! And the pricing of all their products is pocket friendly.
I have only purchased eyeshadows from their collections - I'm rather fussy over eyeliner having found Barry M Black Liquid Liner my one of choice, I adore my Urban Decay eyeshadow primer so won't invest in the MUA one, *you can see my reviews on both of these products here and here* and I'm not a fan of lip gloss full stop, so have not sampled their Lip Booms - despite their quirky names. They do sell lipstick which I may get a few of at some point at only £1, with a reasonable selection of your-lips-but-better colours.
|Pro Immaculate Collection Eyeshadows Palette|
The most expensive products are the Pro Glamour Day and Night Eyeshadows palettes at £4 for 12 colours, and the Pro Immaculate Collection Eyeshadows Palette at £8 for 24 colours, which I have. As you can see, there is one downright winner for colour of choice here - the pinky golden shade 12 at the centre. Another favourite of mine is an icy white gold, which is shade 18 and two from the bottom left. I have dabbled in most of these colours - this is actually an excellent colour selection and has gone through much use! They also complement eachother extremely well.
|Shade 9 (Pearl)|
I think what MUA are best for is their single eyeshadows. These are a bargain at £1 for 2g of shadow, and there is quite a large range of colours in 2 mediums - pearl and matte. I personally prefer the pearl finish, as these are prettier colours and I think more worth the pennies. The packaging is very useful for transporting in your makeup bag, but the little strip of tape to prevent it opening before you buy it leaves sticky marks on the lid!
|Shade 4 (Pearl)|
The distressing thing about these eyeshadows, is that the more pearlised they get, the messier the product turns out to be, with dusty spillage over the packaging galore! So maybe not the best quality product, but at £1 a go who can argue? :)
