I have this eye shadow in 'pearl' and it's unbelievable! It's so pigmented and blends beautifully and the colour is gorgeous. I've used many high end brands in eye shadows like YSL and Urban Decay and I can barely notice a difference in quality. I can't believe it only cost £1 as I prefer it to most of my £10 eye shadows.
These eye shadows aren't just good for £1, they're good for any price! In a blind test, you'd never know the different between these and a higher end product. The colour payoff is outstanding, you get quite a lot of product for the money and they don't fall apart with one brush sweep, like some cheap eye shadows. They're really blendable, and best of all they don't crease by the end of the day. The packaging is surprisingly good for the money too and they're sturdy enough to put in your handbag without fear of it falling everywhere. I'll be buying loads more of these, and for a pound each I won't even have to feel guilty!
i love mua eyeshadows i have a few mua products and the eyeshadows are one of my fave. i have a few shades and definatly getting more. they are really pigmented for the price you cant go wrong
I'm definitely impressed by MUA eyeshadows. The pigmentation is good, they blend easily, the fallout isn't massive. This is one of the best bargains on the market. The only problem is the matte shades but that's an issue for many pricier brands too.
I adore these eyeshadows, they come in a fantastic range of colours both matte and pearl, bright and neutral. They are incredibly pigmented and last for hours. But the best part? These bad boys are a quid. One pound. I don't know how I only have 3 of these, I'm amazed I don't have a draw full!
I adore them. Especially great for flash-in-the-pan trends - colours you know you probably won't be wearing next season.
These eyeshadows are amazing, they are super pigmented and very cream like, as for the price, its great not having to have to splash out on a new eyeshadow because you can pay so little for a great quality eyeshadows, love these!
For the price, these eyeshadows are so cheap I would probably buy more. However I do not think they are comparable to the high end brands at all. The texture is quite chalky, and I have the matt black shade which isn't pigmented at all. I have to really build up the colour to get a deep black, so I think the colours are quite hit and miss. But for the price, really can't complain!
I absolutely adore each and every one of these eyeshadows. They're extremely pigmented and are 100x better than any of the other eyeshadows that I have ever tried, including high-end brands.
They're affordable enough to purchase colours which can produce everything from a nude/natural look, to a very dramatic eye.
Both matte and pearl shades performed well, with minimal creasing and smudging (although I highly recommend purchasing their eye primer to use with the shadows to make it last all day and night!)
Couldn't be happier with my purchases, will definately try to purchase more colours and pallettes. And if you're not sure, for £1 each - why not?
I have been really impressed with the majority of the MUA shadows I bought. Namely no, 11 (a matte, neutral brown) which I often use on my eyebrows and for a daytime smokey eye, no. 16 (another matte, pinky nude that works well as a subtle highlighter) no. 11 (a shimmery, bronzed brown that it beautiful and wearable) and no. 12 (a shimmery brown, with multidimensional blue/green duo-chrome)
A few of the shades were disappointing, some seemed to lack pigment and a few of the pearl shades were overly frosty for my liking, but overall I love this range. For £1 an eyeshadow the value is fantastic, the packaging seems robust too- so far all the eyeshadows have stayed intact despite being throw around my make-up bag. I will definitely be repurchasing the 4 that I mentioned above, overall one of my favourite finds this year.
These are a bit hit and miss quality-wise, and it depends a lot on the texture you pick. Most of the singles, as well as most of the 12 shadow palettes and the quads, consist of what MUA calls Pearl finish - shimmery/frosty, similar to MAC's frosts. These feel very buttery going on, but I think they can look and feel a bit too cheap/frosty/silicone-y if you pick some of the lighter shades, so it is a matter of taste. However, there are some real gems to be found. I think shade number 11 is amazing, it is a gorgeous medium tan beige bronze that makes a great lid shade. Out of the palettes my favourite is Heaven and Earth, which consists of earthy shades. Strangely enough, I usually wear primer with my shadows, but if I skip the primer, the buttery texture of these shadows actually makes them stay on my oily lids better than any other brand.
The mattes of the line are obviously of a completely different texture, and I would say they feel like even better quality. The real shocker is shade 19. Wow. It is a matte medium/dark brown and is the perfect crease shade. Most brands that are a lot more expensive than MUA struggle with pigmentation on matte shades, and most drugstore brands struggle even more, so it is really unbelievable that this is shadow is actually the most pigmented and soft matte brown shade I have ever found.
Finally, their trios have a completely different texture to either of the above. I think these are baked, in any case they are still shimmery/shiny, but a lot less frosty. The texture is much drier and more lightweight. I think these are the best of all the MUA shadows and are very comparable to high end ones. All the trios have interesting shades, I would say my favourite is Chocolate Box, consisting of a light pink, a dusty purple and a chocolate brown.
