£1.00 and I got it for INR 150 in an online sale.
My Experience with MUA Makeup Academy Gold Nugget Intense Glitter Eyeliner:
Packaging: The liner comes in a sleek color coded wooden pencil with a transparent cap. The color coded body also has some glitter flecks over it which, again, adds to the chic packaging. The plastic cap comes with an inbuilt sharpener, which is a plus point. The sharpener is quite nice, it sharpens the pencil very easily and you get a clean and pointed tip every time. One can easily sharpen the tip before use especially while travelling. The ingredients and the shade name are embossed over the pencil. Overall, the packaging looks chic and is travel friendly as well.
Shade: Gold Nugget is a coppery deep beige kind of color, with visible silver shimmer flecks in it. The shade is apt to wear on everyday basis. The creamy and non drying formula makes it suitable to use as an eyeshadow/base. The metallic color and the glittering shimmer specks make it a suitable color to wear to parties.
The shade can also be used in the inner corners and on the waterline to make eyes look wide awake. It’s my most preferable shade when it comes to neutral summery makeup. I also use it to brighten up the inner and outer corners of my eyes. The shade will suit every skin tone. It’s not a glittery golden yellow kind of color, but something very neutral and metallic at the same time.
Texture and Pigmentation: The eyeliner has that perfect creamy texture to it, though I won’t call it super creamy and soft. The formula makes it glide very easily over eyelids. When I first saw the glitter specks, I was a little skeptical as I didn’t want it to hurt my eyes. But, I was wrong! In fact, the glitters can’t be felt or hurt the eyes during application. The liner has non drying formula – it doesn’t set dry even after application. So, it can be worn as an eyeshadow.
Infact, the liner is not really apt to be worn as a liner, because it transfers easily to the upper crease area after application. The liner is absolutely safe to use on waterline area, there is no sort of tingling or irritating effect. The liner is much pigmented in itself. But, because it’s a very neutral color, it won’t show up really well on eyes. To make the color more perceptible, I need to swipe it 2 to 3 times. I must mention that the fans of bold eye looks might not really like it. But, it’s a boon for neutral shade lovers, like me.
Staying Power: As the liner don’t sets dry, it doesn’t last really long especially when one have oily eyelids. It wears off much quickly when you accidently rub or touch your eyes and the glitters spread on the all over eyes. Generally, when you nicely mattify your eyelids and apply these over an eyeshadow, the liner will tend to stay for a good 3-4 hours. Sometimes, the glitter specks tend to stick on the eyes even after the liner fades away.
Pros of MUA Makeup Academy Gold Nugget Intense Glitter Eyeliner:
• Beautiful metallic beige-ish color
• Perfect to be worn daily and on parties as well
• The glitters are concentrated, but aren’t gritty and cannot be sensed on eyes during application
• Packaging looks pretty and travel friendly
• Texture is creamy
• It glides smoothly over eyelids without dragging
• Pigmentation is good
• Can be used as an eyeliner and also as an eyeshadow
• Safe to use on waterline as it doesn’t sting or hurt the eyes
Cons of MUA Makeup Academy Gold Nugget Intense Glitter Eyeliner:
• Smudges easily with rubbing and touching
• As the liner doesn’t set dry, the staying power is low
• The shimmers stay on eyelids even after the liner fades away
• Skip this one if you desire bold look
• The liner needs to be swiped for 2-3 times on eyelids in order to make the color a little more perceptible
Though this one is a beautiful shade, I think the liner’s texture and pigmentation could have been improved.

Even I would use it as an eyeshadow, and not as a liner. But, these pencils are very good. I have two of these.
Second that Shikha, if this pencil smudges so much, using it as an eyeshadow is the best choice!
