Superdrug MUA Eye Shadow - 3 Shades Swatched!

I only recently became aware of the MUA range in Superdrug stores, it’s just not something that came onto my radar for some reason; however I recently bought a polish from there and was actually surprised as I quite liked it and for the £1 price tag I was quite impressed with the product.

I’ve now been sent 3 more MUA products to try out, eye shadows to be precise and again I’m finding them to be really rather nice. The pigmentation is much better than I had anticipated, which I was surprised at as I thought cheaper eye shadow would mean much less pigmentation, meaning you’d need a lot more product on to get a decent colour.

Staying power is ok, it’s not going to withstand a hurricane but I think with a bit of primer that it would be perfectly fine for your normal evening out. Blendability is also great from my experience; I didn’t really have any issues with the application of the shadows other than a little fall down.

The shades I have been sent are: 13 (Pearl), 15 (Pearl) and 9 (Also Pearl) and I have swatched them in that order in the photo's. I like all 3 of the colours, although I’d say that 9 was my favourite as it’s so striking – I defy anybody to not like it even just a little bit.

I have swatched both using my finger shown as the bottom large stripe in the photo's, and also by using an inexpensive eye shadow brush (as I thought that it would be best to judge the application on the products own merit, rather than that of the brush) and you can see this at the top of the stripe for each colour.

This range is great for those who don't have loads of spare money to spend on new makeup, but who would still like to update their look/makeup bag a little as every item is just £1; you can even get the products on 3 for 2 offers sometimes which brings down the price even more (not that it really needs it).

I do think some of the products will be hit and miss (which could be said for many brands of differing price ranges in all fairness), but it's worth researching blogs, testing the products (if you can) in store and choosing the best products for you based on this... and I guess even if you get a dud, £1 isn't a huge amount to lose.

See the range!
