I picked these little beauties up on a recent trip to Superdrug, I'd been intrigued to try MUA for a little while after hearing all the good things about them and had also been looking for a neutral eyeshadow for a while and as they were only £1 (I am still a bit baffled by this - I think because I normally buy Urban Decay shadows which are most definitely not £1) I picked up the darker brown colour as well as it's my staple eye shadow colour. These were both a bit out of the ordinary for me though as they are both a matte colour and I normally go for a shimmer/glitter but I wanted something a bit more subtle for work because I wear a lot of eyeliner, If I add too much eyeshadow as well it looks like I'm ready for a night out rather than a day at the office.
I've been after a nude eye shadow (Shade 17 - Matt) for a while and this one is exactly what I have been looking for, it's a few shades away from my skin tone so you can tell you're wearing eye shadow but it's not too in your face, it's also really good for blending in other colours so you don't have full on colour, for example, I apply this as a base and will then blend in a more golden shimmer colour along the base of the eye lid so that there is a little hint of shimmer but it's not too much for work. Really love this colour just because it's so simple.
The darker brown eyeshadow (Shade 19 - Matt) is again a matte colour, which is something I haven't really used before, but at the price MUA sell these at, it's great for experimenting. I have been using this one as more of a definer on my lid using my Ruby and Millie eye liner brush to get as close to the lash line as possible. It looks great blended into the nude shadow as well.
The packaging is simple, black base with a see through flip lid, which is great for picking the colours you want quickly and then the MUA branding on the lid, the branding has worn off on both of mine though. I use both of these shadows over another MUA favourite product - the MUA Eyeshadow Primer - review here - and it lasts a good 8-12 hours without creasing.
Do you use MUA eyeshadows? Which is your favourite?
