An MUA Look...#EOTD

MUA single eyeshadow in shade 09, £1 for 2g. (Available in Superdrug)

Why I am attracted to anything and everything purple pigmented at the moment baffles me, as I usually cannot stand the colour, and am guilty of deeming it as 'nothingy' in the past. But now I'm choosing lipglosses, lipsticks, blushers and eyeshadows that are purple, lilac and violet in colour. I think it's the time of year, I don't tend to be reaching for the soft pinks and corals, opting for deeper and more intense shades instead.

I picked up this MUA eyeshadow and thought I'd create a look, as at first it could seem as quite a scary colour. But as we all know, bold colours are here to stay in terms of makeup trends so we may aswell embrace it!

The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is strong and has a pearl finish as described on the back of the casing. MUA split their singular eyeshadows into either pearl or matte finishes.
It's a fine, strong pigmented deep violet with a blue shimmer. In terms of it's £1 pricetag, the quality is phenomenal, and the shades they are available in are pretty exciting for such a cheap brand. I wouldn't call this a safe colour by any means!
