MUA - Makeup Academy eyeshadow Shade 12

Oh Superdrug how I love thee for having very cute and cheap eyeshadows for me to buy and then rave about to the world!  I was in Superdrug the other day scouting out prizes for my upcoming giveaway, (stay tuned and become a follower ) when I came upon this eyeshadow.

As soon as I saw it and swatched it, I immediately thought it could be a perfect dupe for MAC's Club eyeshadow.  After researching when I got home, this seems to be the general consensus :)  I don't own Club and it's a shadow I was always intrigued by, but wasn't sure if I could pull it off or not.  This way, I got to try it for a fraction of the price, namely €1.20!! Bargain alert if ever I saw one.

The packaging is pretty basic, but for €1.20, it's fine.

MAC describes Club as "Muted reddish brown duochrome* with green opalescent shimmer" and from the photo of Shade 12 above, that's exactly what you get here.

It applies nicely, in the photos below I had about 2 layers on, just to make sure the green shimmer was coming through.  I just blended the edges and it blends so easily.

Ooh my eye looks really green in this photo!

You cannot go wrong with this eyeshadow for the price.  I picked up another shade too that I'll review soon.  These eyeshadows have been my bargain of the month so far :)  Go out and pick up a couple and enjoy!
