Advantages: Cheap and reasonable quality
Disadvantages: not much
A recent visit to Superdrug found me buying a few of the products from the Mua range. Given that I tend to either lose my make up or not use it for so long that I have to buy new stuff, this range is really reasonably priced with all of the products including the foundation being under £5.
These little pots of eye shadow cost only £1, and come in about 20 different colours, so something for every occasion and outfit. There are also palettes of eye colours and eye shimmer dust so I was quite spoilt for choice.
One of the colours I bought was shade 20 which is a matt black and comes in a covered and recessed pot with a sturdy lid. To open the lid has to be pushed back slightly and even when sitting in my make up bag and not treated with real care, the lid hasn't broken and the clip down fastener hasn't snapped which is a bonus.
The eyeshadow itself is very black and because it is matt there are no shiny bits to it although it does have a little bit of a black shimmer. It is easy to apply and does go on as a really black colour, which can be added to for a more dramatic look. It is easy to blend with a make up brush. The eye shadow stays on the eyes and has to be taken off with eye make up remover, and although it's not the easiest eye shadow to remove I tend to like this fact because it means that when I do apply it to my eyes it does stay put.
I have had this for a few months now and have hardly dented it although I have used it quite a lot when I go out, so it lasts for a long time and a little of the product goes a long way. It does have a 12 month shelf life although I think it could last longer than this.
WHAT I THINK OF THE PRODUCT...
A really good product. There are plenty of colours to chose from, they are good quality and true to their colour and the product is easy to use
For anyone wanting a very reasonably priced product I would recommend this.
Thanks for reading
