Today I am here with another product from MUA. And it’s a rust shade from the pearly eye shadow range; formerly I had reviewed the beautiful Aqua green shade as well.
Product Description: Single eyeshadows that are super high pigmented, smooth and easy to apply are the must-have item from MUA. They’re the barga-licious price of just £1 each and they come in 34 amazing shades from bright to natural colors. Create a dramatic look with three or four in one look, or simply sweep one across the eye for a wash of color.
Omg, we just love these eyeshadows! You could even use some of them as blushers! The looks you could create are endless… go on, collect them all!
Price: £ 1 and INR 615 approx. Prices vary.
Packaging: The eyeshadow comes in a cute, small rounded black pan with a transparent cap, so you can detect the shade easily, at the back of it shade number and ingredients are mentioned. I love how small and travel friendly the pan is, it can easily fit in your purse for touch- ups.
My Take on MUA Pearl Eye Shadow in Shade 28
Shade: The Shade no. 28 is a very nice warm toned coppery bronze shade. And I love such warm toned eye shadows, which really compliments every skin tone and gives effect of natural defined eyes. The shade is just perfect for every day wear in offices and for parties too, if you are planning to have neutral yet sexy eyes.
Texture & Pigmentation: The eyeshadows claims to be pearly, and yes they are soft, smooth and have a powdery creamy texture to it. They are not chalky in any way it feels very soft to touch it in the pan, sort of feels spongy. It’s really easy to apply the color on the eyelids with fingers or brushes too. The eyeshadows are really mess-free; there will be no fall out during application. It applies in a very neat and clean way. The shadow really has a creamy, pearly sheen and finish to it.
The color pay-off of the shadow is amazing, really awesome; you all can see it in the hand swatches, just a single swipe gives the full color on eyes without any primer base, you need not to swipe your brush multiple times to attain the intense color on eyes.
Staying Power: I have not found this shade to be really long lasting like the other ones, but it manages to stay on me for 3 – 4 hours without a primer (I don’t have oily lids), a mild fading of the color can be noticed in hot, humid days, when I often wipe or rub my eyelids, but they had decent staying power for the price and also without a primer base. I would really compare these with the “Lakme” ones, Lakme ones are poor quality and burn a hole in the pocket too.
Pros of MUA Pearl Eye Shadow in Shade 28:
• A really nice warm coppery shade, what we find rarely, unless in some eyeshadow kit.
• Will compliment every skin tone.
• Perfect for office & party wear too.
• Very soft, smooth & creamy texture.
• Glides very easily on eyes.
• Not chalky at all, finish is very creamy & pearly.
• It doesn’t crease.
• Color pay- off is great, one swipe gives the intense color on eyes.
• Packaging is very cute and convenient.
• Price can really be great if purchased from Indian website on offers.
• Staying power is decent without a primer base too.
• Fades out evenly and then the color appears really pleasing.
Cons of MUA Pearl Eye Shadow in Shade 28:
• Their availability in India.
• I think the pearly, smooth texture makes it slip off from oily lids or in hot, humid climates.
Recommendation: They are awesome shadows; I’ll really recommend this shade to all of you. It’ll nicely compliment cool to warm skin tone. Great color pay-off, decent staying power, soft and smooth in texture, what else we want. And if you can grab them in online offers they are the best substitutes for the Lakme pearl eyeshadow range.
This is going to go a long way with me, but whenever I will run out of this shade, I’ll definitely buy this range again.
IMBB Rating: 4/5.
