shades - 30, 7, 19, 11, 12

If you haven't already guessed, I love MUA and their eyeshadows are no exception. They're only £1 and the quality is amazing, complete bargain! They're so pigmented and vibrant so you don't need to build up colour at all. They're also super smooth and blend really nicely.
There are a wide range of eyeshadows available in two finishes, pearl and matte. I love the pearl eyeshadows, especially the duo chrome shades. The matte eyeshadows are also nice too, a lot of people use them to fill in their brows.
The packaging could be a lot better, they're a very cheap plastic but for the price you can't really complain.
Overall I'm very happy with them and I'm going to pick up a few more next time I visit Superdrug.
They are also available from the MUA website.
Have you tried any MUA products, which ones are your favourites?

  21. MUA make really cheap products, but despite that their eye shadows have always impressed me. I own one of their palettes but want to buy more of their individual shadows, so this post was pretty useful for me, haha.
