|Products I used for this eyeshadow look|
To show you the colour payoff of some of the eyeshadows I decided to use no base or primer to see the actual colour payoff of the eyeshadows. I first took number 1 in the palette and swiped this all across my lid. This shade in particular does create some fallout but its not overly bad and the pigmentation is fantastic. Next I used number 2 in the palette and used this in my crease. This shadow is a little harder to blend but as you can see it turned out fine, you just really need to make sure you spend a lot of time blending out the edges. I also used this colour a tiny bit on the eyelid corners to darken up the look. Finally I used number 3 in the palette as my inner corner highlight. As you can see from my palette I use this colour a LOT but I swear this is my favourite colour of eyeshadow I think I have ever found. It creates the most beautiful highlight on the inner corners but also looks beautiful across the lid.
After my eyeshadows were applied I took my MUA colour intense eyeliner in Jet Black and lined my eyelid and bottom waterline. I then set this liner with number 4 in the palette in order to make the eyeliner last much longer than if I hadn't applied the powder over top. I do have a blog post on these eyeliners which can be found here. Next I curled my eyelashes and applied my MUA Lash Boom mascara which is a new product I have been playing around with. A blog post on this mascara and eyeshadow palette with swatches will be coming soon!
I actually wore this eye look for around 13 hours and the shadows were still visible on my lid even though no primer or base was used. The shadows were not as vibrant as when I first put them on but they honestly withstood very well. The eyeliner was still visible but it had tiny splotches where the colour wore off on the waterline but for 12 hours I think its pretty great if an eyeliner is still somewhat visible. The mascara did smudge a little on the bottom lashline but overall it wasn't too bad and no flaking occured.
This eyeshadow look in total would of cost £12 to recreate and the lasting power is fantastic. The colours are vibrant and a little goes a long way, I use this eyeshadow palette almost everyday and I absolutely love it. For only costing £8 for the Immaculate Collection and £4 for the normal eyeshadow palettes I really think the price and quality makes it a steal and I really would recommend trying them. My only warning is that many of the matte colours I have tried from MUA are not the greatest pigmentation but they can still work in creating a decent eyelook.
