MUA shade 24- review

My love for MUA continues to grow. This little beauty is shade number 24 from their £1 range. I’ve always had a tendency to stick to boring neutral eye shadows and pink shades are definitely something I would usually avoid. That was until I saw Kayleigh over at couture girl do a gorgeous FOTD with Macs cranberry and I was surprised how amazing a pink coloured eye shadow could look. As I am a tight arse and didn’t want to splash out on cranberry just in case it made me look like I had some gruesome eye infection or something I ventured out to find an alternative. Although this MUA shade isn’t really an exact dupe for cranberry I really like it and definitely recommend it.

The shadow is extremely pigmented and has amazing colour pay off. Sometimes I find with cheap eye shadows they are a bit powdery but this one is really creamy and applies like a dream. I used it without primer and was so surprised to find it lasted all day. I think it’s such a gorgeous colour and an amazing shade for autumn.

The close up shot of my eye makes me squirm a little, I’m not keen on full on close ups of my face and by the looks of it I need to pluck my eyebrows. I’m off to find the tweezers....and some concealer!!!!


  1. That's such a lovely shade! I've got a few of the single MUA eyeshadows and they're all amazing formulas - such a bargain for £1! x
