REVIEW: MUA Eye Shadows In Shades 8 & 25

Bright eye shadows are perfect for a girl's night out. If the right colors are chosen, they can really make your eyes stand out more. Today, I'm going to be reviewing the MUA Eye Shadows in shades 8 and 25. Both are pearl finishes. 








WHAT IT CLAIMS: Single eye shadows that are super high pigmented, smooth and easy to apply are the must- have item from MUA. They're the barga- licious price of just 1 GBP each and they come in 34 amazing shades from bright to natural colors. Create a dramatic look with three or four in one look, or simply sweep across the eyelid for a wash of color. Omg! We just love these eye shadows! You could even use some of them as blushers! The looks you can create are endless......go on, collect them all! 


WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT: Normally, I'd steer clear of anything from MUA before. I just couldn't believe that they'd offer something good for such a great price. I was dead wrong! MUA has some really amazing and super affordable products, including these eye shadows.

Packaging is really flimsy. I'm not too fond of it. It feels really cheap, like it could break easily. However, when it comes to most products, the packaging doesn't bother me as long as the product inside is good, and that's just the case here. 


I got the shades 8 and 25. Shade 25 is a beautiful, shimmery cranberry color, almost like MAC's Cranberry eye shadow. This is a color which can also be used as a blush. It gives the cheeks a gorgeous, flushed look. Shade 8 is a shimmery, teal blue color. Pigmentation of both these eye shadows is amazing! I mean, for the price that I got them for, I was expecting something that wouldn't even show up on my skin, but like I said, I was wrong. Just one swipe of a shader brush through these eye shadows and I get enough color to pack on all over my lid.

Texture- wise, Shade 8 is more buttery and creamy as compared to Shade 25, however the difference is only minimal. There is almost zero fallout which means that there isn't a huge mess all over my face when I'm done with my eyes. 


Lasting power is average. If you have oily eyelids, then using a primer underneath is a must if you want to prevent your eye shadow from creasing. 


ABOVE: SHADE 8 

BELOW: SHADE 25


Have I mentioned how amazing the price is?! Seriously, I can't get over how inexpensive they are! And there are SO many shades to choose from. Usually, that's quite uncommon with drugstore products so good job there, MUA! 


PRICE AND AMOUNT: I got these for 200 PKR each and they contain 2 grams of product. 


AVAILABILITY: I got these from www.just4girls.pk. You can also purchase these from www.muastore.co.uk. And, if all else fails, check out amazon.com, for which I have a link for at the bottom. 


YOU'LL LOVE IT BECAUSE:

-Pigmentation is amazing 

-They are inexpensive 

-There's a huge range of shades to choose from 

-There is minimal fallout during application 

-You get a huge amount of product

-They can be used as blushes as well 


YOU'LL HATE IT BECAUSE:

-Packaging is flimsy 

-You don't like pearl finishes 


OVERALL VIEW: Whether you're just venturing into makeup or have been into it for a while, you definitely can't go wrong with these eye shadows. I really suggest you check them out, if you already haven't. Have you tried the MUA Eye Shadows? What do you think of them?
