ALL PICTURES ARE SWATCHED WET USING SKINDONAVIA SETTING SPRAY
Hello Beautiful People
I have a review for you all today I know shock horror right? haha today we are looking at the MUA baked trio shadows in Innocent! I bought this product a while ago and kinda forgot about it. however during a huge de-stash I stumbled across it once more! Baked shadows arnt anything new many brands have been doing them for years however I am always on the look out for budget friendly products as makeup in Australia has a very high price tag.
MUA is a UK based brand they do ship world wide I believe it cost around £7 to ship this and a few other things to Australia (around $13 AUD on par with current international shipping rates) I was send shipping confirmation within 48 hrs and it arrived on my door step about 2 weeks later.
In terms of pricing this trio cost £2.50 ($4.09 AUD) and there is a wide variety of shades available. I chose this particular Trio as the first color looked like a MAC blue brown dupe and you all know I love my MAC.
In terms of pigmentation I honestly didn't enjoy this trio dry the colours were very sheer (sadly my photo didn't work and its raining here at the moment once its sunny I will snap a pic) but that can sometimes happen with backed shadows! I then swatched using a damp brush and I was blown away the pigmentation is amazing as you can see in swatches below. Sadly a catch 22 is these weren't easy to blend wet.
These shades once dry lasted a good 8 hrs which is impressive there was SOME minor flaking however but not enough to make a huge impact,
Top Left colour - Sadly once swatched this isn't a dupe for MAC blue brown but it is a gorgeous warm brown with a hint of green duo chrome
Top Right Colour - A cool toned almost taupe shade frost finish
Bottom Colour - A metallic ivory shade
Would I re-purchase? yes would I love these as lid shades
Question of the day
what's you favourite baked eye shadow colour?

Product: 8/10Pigmentation: 9/10
Final thoughts: Best used wet, for better pigmentation, however when wet not easily blendable. The shades lasted 8 hrs over a primer with minor flaking. all frost/metallic finishes.
Overall Rating: B+
