Today I am going to review two eye crayons by MUA called the Color blast eyeshadow tint.
Price: Rs. 1050/- for 3.5g
Get a long lasting tint of color with this smooth Color Blast eye shadow from the house of MUA Makeup Academy. This easy-glide eye shadow will last for longer hours without smudging. It is encased in a handy pencil for ease.
My experience with MUA Color Blast Eyeshadow Tint:
Eye shadow is a part of our daily make up routine especially if it comes in a crayon form. Yes these eyeshadow tints come in a crayon form which makes application super fast. There are about 6 shades available in this range. They are all named after Rihanna’s songs, “Stay”, “Diamonds”, “A Girls like me”, “Bring it back”, “Loud”, & “Unfaithful”.
Firstly, the packaging, it comes in a chubby stick form and yes it’s retractable, which is very easy to handle. The shade of the respective stick is the same as the pencil color. It makes it easily identifiable.
The texture of MUA color blast eyeshadow tint is very smooth and can be directly applied on the eyelids. It applies easily and blends well. The texture is smooth and buttery, it’s basically a tint. Hence, to get the opacity you have to layer it well. I would suggest using a primer for long lasting application and also it doesn’t crease. The pigmentation is also good. The color is clearly seen in 4-5 swipes.
Now about the shades, the first one I purchased is the Unfaithful which is a grayish black with minute shimmers in it. Stay is more of a creamish beige color with shimmer in it. It’s a great shade to add brightness to your eyes by applying towards the corner of your eyes for highlighting. Personally I use them as a base for some sheer eyeshadows as it looks completely nude color on me.
It last for about 4 -5 hours for me and leaves the shimmer over the eyelids. Yes, in these pencils the color fades off leaving the shimmer. And finally to take it off it can be washed off easily.
Pros of MUA Color Blast Eyeshadow Tint :
• Smart and convenient packaging
• Retractable so you don’t have to sharpen them
• Apply well and blend easily, you get a smooth shimmery finish
• They don’t settle into fine lines of the lid after fading
• It’s available on discounted rates on websites
Cons of MUA Color Blast Eyeshadow Tint:
• Less variety in shades.
• It creases after few hours.
• For exact pigmentation you need to swipe on 4-5 coats .
IMBB Rating: 2.9/5
Would I repurchase MUA Color Blast Eyeshadow Tint?
No, I would not repurchase these crayons as they are not eye shadows but are tints. I would spend on eye shadows instead of lighter shades like these. Though I like the concept of eye crayons but still I have mixed review about these pencils. And for me creasing also is not an issue you can always blend it with your fingertips quickly. But not everyone would like creamy tints like these.
In a busy schedule, I find these crayon pencils can be a fast application product. But the only con is it that it wouldn’t last the whole day. I would suggest this for people who need quick application for a shorter span (4-5 hours) and those who are looking for a sheer wash of color, they may work just fine.
