Review of MUA (Make up Academy) Pressed Powder MUA products are available at Superdrug, the range is aimed at the budget conscious end of the market. Although I am not a regular user of cosmetics, I recently discovered this range and have been enjoying experimenting with the products. **The Product** Make Up Academy pressed powder is presented in a sturdy, square transparent plastic box. The box is approximately 3 inches square, there is no mirror or applicator, this is definitely simple, basic packaging. The product name is on the lid in a silver font, the weight (5.7g) and ingredient list, for those who wish to know such things, can be ... Read the complete review

Having recently knocked over my make up bag and in the process smash a few eyeshadows and a pressed powder I was then given the job to find replacements. My No7 pressed powder was lovely but not having a £5 off voucher made me want to try another brand to see if it would match the quality. Pressed powders for me can be a bit hit or miss so I wanted to buy something up to the job. The pressed powder I ended up buying after browsing the wide and varied selection was the MUA Pressed Powder (Make Up Academy). Of course the £1.00 price was obviously a definite positive but I have a few MUA products which I have been pretty pleased with and for £1.00 I'm not going ... Read the complete review

Before buying this product (and another two I am reviewing afterwards), I had never tried MUA before - partly because I thought it would be rubbish, but mostly because I didn't know it existed. MUA products as far as I am aware, are only sold in Superdrug stores and is their own brand. Its not the most expansive range of make-up but they have a selection of lipsticks, lip glosses, eyeliners, bronzers, powders, foundations - etc. Everything is £1 so you don't need to worry about scraping together your pennies to afford a £10 product which won't last very long. Anyway, my main reason for buying this powder was because I was in need and out of pocket ... Read the complete review

-- Reasons for buying -- Make up academy provides make-up trends on a budget, allowing you to achieve the latest looks without breaking the bank. When I came across this brand for the first time in Superdrug I decided I would swap some of my more expensive products for some of the cheaper products in the MUA range. One of the swaps I made was for this Pressed powder. -- Price and Availability -- The MUA range is only available in Superdrug stores and on their website . This pressed powder was £1 which is a brilliant price, even if the quality of the product isn't fantastic, as least you didn't burn a hole in pocket just trying it. There are four ...

I have been a fan of Superdrug's budget Make up Academy [MUA] range for a while now. Every product in the standard range costs £1 which is one reason to like it. The other is that all the products I have tried have been good quality and the pressed powder is no exception. I have quite fair skin and I usually chose ivory tones of powder or foundation. The MUA range consists of just 4 shades which is probably it's biggest disadvantage. There were not any testers available when I first bought this so I decided to try the lightest shade which is simply called No.1. Luckily, it has proved a good match for my skin tone. The powder comes in a clear plastic palette, ... Read the complete review
