Not a bad effort

So the other day I did a post on the new MUA eyeshadows I bought from Superdrug for £1. The swatches were lovely, such vibrant colours, but I hadn't actually tried them out on eyes. So with that in mind I wore the green eyeshadow to work to see how it lasted. This is what the eyeshadow looked like when it was first applied. (I also applied a purple eye liner from Gosh on the upper lash line and black mascara on the lashes)

The eyeshadow itself applied well and is well pigmented which I love! However, lets see how the £1 eyeshadow lasted. This picture was taken at the end of the day....

Hmmm, as you can see the shadow did not last all day (I did apply a primer under the shadow) which is a shame, but since I only paid £1 for the product I wasn't expecting the same lasting power as some of the more expensive brands. Overall I really like the shadow, towards the end of the day the product did gather in my crease but it I found it actually lasted well up until then.
What do you think? Have you ever tried MUA before?


  1. omg..the last pic schoked me hah :D great post anyway^^

  2. Hey just came across your blog and I have to say I have tried one MUA product and hated it! haha

    It was the powder and it actually came out in a reddish horrible colour and went all blotchy in literally a few hrs so i ended up looking like a patchy lobster =/

    Anyways I'm still new to the blogging thing too so pleease check out my blog and let me know what you think! xo

  3. Oh my goodness! That really sucks! What kind of primer? I find that UDPP works pretty well for most shadows. At least they were cheap! :)

  4. OMG I was going to say that colour is very vibrant and it looks great with your eyes and then I saw the last pik and I got sad lol
    But if that colour lasted on your eyes it was a great colour on you =)
