Hey there! I'm back with another £5 and under review! Today I'm going to be talking about MUA Make Up Academy Eye Shadow Trio in 'Pink Sorbet'
Now unfortunately I dived straight in and started playing with the product before I had a chance to take a photo of it clean. Sometimes I just can't help myself and I was way way too excited to try this product after hearing so much about it.
Here are the all important details.
- MUA Make up Academy Eyeshadow Trio Pink Sorbet
- Price: 2.50
- Shop: Superdrug

First things first, let's swatch them.
My first impression off the back of the swatch was 'whaaaaaaaat?' I honestly did not expect the colours to be so pigmented. I mean like, this is an eye shadow trio that costs £2.50! The swatches were just one swipe each. I would usually expect to may ££ for an eyeshadow that looks this good straight out of the pan. Great expectations for this straight away.
Let's see how they look!
Holy crap. These shadows are good. I think I'm in love. The powders themselves are quite hard, they're not creamy or soft shadows, but even still I can't believe how easy they are the apply, how strong the colours are, and how shimmery and lovely they look. The pinks go perfectly with my skin tone, and the the shades all blend in well together.They're a perfect mix of soft, shimmer and fresh romantic pinks.
The only downside is the foam applicator is crap. Really crap, so I recommend using an eyeshadow brush and a nice big fluffy brush for blending. I think these are a fantastic buy for £2.50 and I'm going to be hunting for another 1 or 2 as a backup for my drawers in case I ever run out.
