MUA [MAKE UP ACADEMY] // Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencils | Review + SwatchesThursday, October 16, 2014
I recently did a rather large haul on MUA (see the evidence here), which mostly consisted of the amazing Velvet Lip Lacquers but I couldn't resist throwing in a few extra items. I have black eyeliners for days, and only a few browns and nude tones, so I decided to grab some of the £1.00 Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencils to try out.
I went for three shades; Rich Brown, Snow White and Royal Blue, out of the nine shades available. They're in your standard pencil form, with an additional sharpened in the lid which is such a handy thing to have.
The formula of these are super creamy and they glide on with full pigmentation onto the eyes with out dragging or pulling. Because they are so creamy you can really smudge them out, which is the thing I love about them. I've been experimenting with a bit of the blue liner smudged along the bottom lashes, and it is a nice change from my usual browns and nudes I use! The white liner is just a good one to have on hand for the waterline, or inner corner of the eye. The brown is a gorgeous deep tone and is perfect for a smudgy brown smokey eye and it looks great along the lash-line. They take a few minutes to set down, and they last all day on the eyes.
At around NZD $2.00, there isn't much too complain about! MUA ship internationally for £7.50, but often have offers for free shipping if you spend a certain amount, and it's worth keeping an eye out for that.
Have you used these eyeliners before?
