MUA Pearl Eyeshadow in Shade 4 Review

MUA Pearl Eyeshadow in Shade 4

Hello Barbie Dolls,

My today’s review is a MUA pearl eyeshadow in Shade 4, previously I had reviewed a nice coppery and aqua green shadow in this range. Let’s see how my today’s pick fared for me.

Details: 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. But prices keep on varying depending on online offers.

Packaging: The eyeshadow comes in small, round black pan with a transparent lid, which shuts with a click. At the back of it you will find the shade number and an ingredients list. It’s really very handy in size. I wish they had a spongy, little applicator attached with it, for easy touch ups anywhere.

My Take on MUA Pearl Eyeshadow in Shade 4:

Shade, Texture and Pigmentation: The number 4 shade is very pretty toned down pinkish purple shade, with very minute silver shimmers in it which gives the shadow a silver sheen. It’s a very mild shade of purple; I think this shade is in rage in India, we can see our daily soaps “bahu” wearing this kind of eyeshadow colour. It’s an everyday wearable shade, can be paired with any kind of outfit either Indian or western. But I think this shade would not appear much flattering on dusky skin tones, because of the silvery cast to it. But cool or medium tone can easily carry this toned down purple with some hint of pink.

Texture is smooth and soft and not at all gritty or chalky. Even the shadow feels so spongy and creamy to touch in the pan. It’s kind of creamy based powder form eyeshadow. The shadow gives a pearly, creamy even finish, it’s really easy to blend and apply (with fingers too), and there is no fall out or shimmery mess during application. It has really good pigmentation; one swipe gives full opaque color on eyes, even without a primer base.

Staying Power: The eyeshadows are really great; no compromise has been made with the quality. The shadow will stay put for 3-4 hours easily, no primer base is needed to make it stay. A little fading can be noticed after 3 hrs, but I would say that they stay put decently.

Cons of MUA Pearl Eyeshadow in Shade 4:

• The silvery or metallic kind of sheen to it, just hated it, otherwise the shade would really stand out.
• Availability in India.

Recommendation/ Re purchase: Yes, really you would really love the shade; it’s a very subtle hue of purple, which is now in rage. But I just hate the silvery sheen it has, without which it would have suited every skin tone.

I am not gonna re purchase this shade, this little pot is going to last long with me. Otherwise I would recommend these lovely single eyeshadows to everyone.

IMBB Rating: 3.5/ 5. 1.5 Less for the silvery caste to it.

  1. I think it’s a fun shade, but you’re so right Supriya about the silver sheen probably clashing with warm or dusky skin tones. Looks off on my skin tone. *blush*
