Newest Review: ... for an eyeshadow as I just think it's easier and less messy to apply and you can put on as much as you want with a slanted brow brush for ... more
An absolute bargain!

Advantages: Cheap! Great cover, lasts well
Disadvantages: For this price, I really can't fault it
I have never bought any MUA (Make Up Academy) products before and in fact never really paid much attention to the stand in Superdrug (I'm not sure that I've seen it sold elsewhere but it might well be somewhere), until I was looking for a new black eyeshadow a while ago.
I didn't want to pay much as I already had a lovely shimmery black eyeshadow but I wanted a basic matte one for applying over eyeliner with a fine make up brush, just to give my eyes a bit more definition and a smokey look. So, I was overjoyed when I discovered this little eyeshadow for just £1!!! Bargain!!! It is a single pot of eyeshadow (2g), not a bad size and it is in the normal type of plastic pot with a transparent lid. It flips open and it clips closed well - which is pretty important as nobody wants black eyeshadow all over the contents of their make up bag or anywhere else for that matter!
I was slightly skeptical, due the price, and thought it might not give good coverage / not be very highly pigmented, as I have found before with some cheaper eyeshadows but upon my first use of it I was really impressed. It went on easy, it didn't spread around everywhere and I didn't have to apply twenty layers of it to get the colour I desired!
I have had it for a while now and I use it often, I have used it all over my lid and found it gave decent coverage / colour and lasted reasonably well. It doesn't last as well or give as stronger colour as some more costly eyeshadows, however, for £1 you really can't go wrong and what's more you can afford to buy a few different colours while you're there! :)
Summary: Well worth your hard earned £1!
