MUA Luxe Glitter Eyeshadow...

Wednesday, 12 March 2014



Here's a product that I had such high hopes for. I guess that's a bit of a spoiler in terms of what I actually think of the MUA Luxe Glitter Eyeshadow!! 

Bought on a whim to get free delivery in my MUA haul, I really didn't need or have the occasion to wear such a glittery product on my eyes but the magpie within prevailed.

For a start the colours are actually alright; a gold, deep bronze, rose gold and a silver. A good selection of neutrals with all bases covered. However that's all I like about this. Each of the glitters are suspended in a thick clear gel which is reminiscent of things I used to use as face paint as a kid. On top of that it's so thick that is is uncomfortable on the eye and if you try and use a thin layer the glitter is so sparse it just looks plain silly.

Creasing is another problem I had, within a few moments the glitter had all risen to the crease of my eye and no amount of blending could solve it. They left my eyes feeling uncomfortable and sticky, not nice.

To be honest I think if you are a face painter then these would be awesome to have in your kit, fancy dress - yes, normal wear? Just not for me.

Have you tried the MUA Luxe Glitter Eyeshadows?

  3. These colours look fun! I'd like to see you use them in your make up look if that's possible :)

  4. The colors are nice but that texture looks upsetting
