Makeup Academy: Baked Trio Eyeshadows

I very much enjoy these bake eyeshadow trios from Makeup Academy. Unlike other baked eyeshadows I have had in the past these are soft to the touch, not too dry and very pigmented.

I enjoy these shadows used dry but if you spritz a little makeup fixing spray on your brush, the colours really do pop in all their shimmery goodness. I own two palettes from the range: Pink Sorbet and Innocence.

Pink Sorbet – Swatches

Pink Sorbet offers a range of soft, feminine pinks and I loved this palette during the spring and summer where these kinds of pastel colours are particularly pretty.

Innocence – Swatches

At first glance, Innocence, is a neutral palette but the colours are actually quite dynamic offering a taupe, champagne and a red-toned brown, duo-chrome with a blue shift.  I particularly like these colours with a soft brown matte (from another palette) in the crease.  These three colours can offer something quite daytime appropriate up to a much more dramatic and smokey look.  Stunning.

If you are lucky enough to have access to the MUA UK website you can purchase these for GPB2.50 online.  Unfortunately we don’t have access to that website anymore in Australia.  MUA sold distribution rights in Australia to Crush Cosmetics and to be honest their range is limited and the prices are very marked up!  As such, I no longer purchase MUA products 😦

So in review: MUA Baked Trio Eyeshadows = good.  MUA closing its online store to Australian buyers = BAD.

Have a fantastic day!
