MUA Colour Blast Eyeshadow Tint - A Girl Like Me

Ah MUA, you're a grand brand for bringing out super affordable products which means we can buy multiple shades and still feel no guilt whatsoever.  This is what a true makeup junkie seeks during every shopping trip and if something's under a fiver, then it's a no brainer.  You buy it.

So when I was in Superdrug a few weeks ago, I had a grand time swatching all the things and came across this eyeshadow crayon from MUA.  And being as restrained as I was, I only bought one.  We'll ignore the fact that they only had testers of the other two shades I wanted.  At the end of the day, I walked out of Superdrug with one of them.  And 5 dry shampoos but we won't go there.

Not owning any of the Clinique Chubby Sticks, for eyes or lips, I thought it was high time to release the inner child and get stuck in to colouring in my lids with a crayon.  So I picked up this shade, A Girl Like Me, immediately comparing it to my all-time favourite MAC eyeshadow Patina.

This shade is quite sheer when applied but adds a gorgeous wash of colour to the lids and if you're in a hurry in the morning, a quick colouring in session, blending the edges with your finger and you can run out the door.  The formula is creamy which means application is easy enough with not much pulling or tugging on the delicate skin, but because it's so creamy, it moves around on my lids quite a bit.  A primer is a must for me as I've oily lids.  Without one, within 30 minutes this creases like a mofo, but once I prime, it lasts until lunchtime before the dreaded line appears on my lid.  I've also figured out that if I apply it to my eyelid and then pat it all over with my finger, it sets ever so slightly and stays put a bit longer and if I apply Patina over the top, well it works even better.

If memory serves me correct, this was €3.49 and I'd definitely give other shades a go.  Bargainous and dinky and available from Superdrug or on the MUA website.

Ok so what shade do I need to try next?  I want the copper one and the purple one next.  For the blog and all *ahem*.


  1. This looks so lovely!! I have a quite similar one from Catrice, and I use it as an eyeliner on my top-lashes :)

  2. I have two similar ones from wet n wild and elf. So handy to have when you're in a rush and, little tip, the lighter ones are a great brow highlighter. Now why in the name of god did you need 5 dry shampoos???
