MUA Eye Shadow Review

I did things a bit backwards, I probably should have been extolling the virtues of Make Up Academy before giving away some of their eye shadows. The price of these shadows are so low so I think it's easy to brush them off but I promise you, they're one of the best I've ever tried.

It honestly doesn't feel like a £1 eye shadow, the pigmentation exceeds the price point and you get 2 grams of product. When I was on vacation and weather permitting, I wore the hell out of Pearl 11 eye shadow. It's a gorgeous neutral brown that works well with my neutrals color phase.

I've already posted the swatches several times before, but here they are again in case you needed a reminder. I had excellent wear with these eye shadows over primer.

The shadows are not too soft yet not too firm. I like Wet n Wild eye shadows but in comparison these are much firmer and it picks up excellently.
