Happy Saturday! Well normally my weekend posts are not beauty related but since I don’t have anything to talk about and since I skipped a beauty post yesterday I thought I’d bring you a mini rant about these new MUA Colour Blasts.
Now before you read on, please be reminded that this is just my opinion, I’ve seen other opinions on these that differ from mine!
I’ve been trying out a few cheaper brands of late, and so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised. Don’t get me wrong. I’m always going to be drawn more towards luxe packaging and products but I’m being a little bit more open lets say. Don’t get me wrong. I do use cheap products and always have, but not as much as high end ones!
So anyway, meet the MUA Colour Blast Eye Tints.
The dark shade is called Loud and the lighter, sandy/gold shade is called Stay.
First of all let me say that I don’t really understand the concept of an eye tint. It’s probably just me but pretty much any eyeshadow can be worn sheerly but I suppose for the very colour shy the idea of tint might apply. But really, I don’t think they are that sheer. Okay they’re not fully opaque but they’re not very sheer either.
Okay so these are described as a long lasting tint of colour in a smooth cream eye shadow with an easy glide formula.
I found them quite hard and teeny bit waxy so not the most easy and I also found the black shade, in particular, quite patchy, if it swatches patchy I can’t imagine it’d be great on the eyes. And it wasn’t. It went on patchy. That’s not a massive issue since you can blend out with a brush or your finger if you wish
But in less than an hour these were indeed nothing more than the merest hint of colour on my eyelid. That’s because nearly every last bit of colour had gravitated to the creases. Awful. I had to go and remove it as it was just the beginning of the day (hence no photographs).
They may be better over a primer or set with powder but I haven’t tried as I’m just not that interested in trying them again as I’ve been put off.
So to sum up, I don’t find them long wearing or easy glide. Although I must add that the black is significantly worse than the pale shade for some reason.
They aren’t expensive at £3 each but I’d have to say I wouldn’t waste your money on them.
