MUA Poptastic Eyeshadow Palette

~ Guest Post by Tejinder Kaur

Hi everyone
Today I am going to review very colourful palette MUA Poptastic. I bought this palette long ago but didn’t use it much. When I did colourful nail art last week I was so inspired with the nails that decided to use this palette to create a colourful look. It is full of colours which pop out in such a way that add drama to the eyes. My FB friends may have already seen pics of the nail art but would love to share here as well with my eye looks.

Purple: Pretty purple, contains some glitters in it which hardly show on the lids. Highly pigmented and best for creating smokey looks.
Light Blue colour: It’s quite a matte baby blue colour. Drier colour; falls out while applying and less pigmented.
Yellow: This is the one you can use for highlighting brow bone or inner tear duct colour .This colour is very light and less pigmented, so can be fall out while applying.
Dark/deep Purple: I love purple; has nice pigmentation and creamy texture.
Yellow gold: It is gorgeous golden shade which best goes with Indian attire. Creamy in texture.
Metallic blue:  It is pretty mid tone metallic blue shade. Very gorgeous shade, creamy in texture and has good pigmentation.
Sea Green shade: I love this colour, again a shimmery shade and the texture is smooth to work with. It helps create gorgeous looks.
Dark Pink: One of the best shade among all, my favourite too.
Blue green: It is very pretty shade. It is bit darker than 1stshade of bottom row. Good pigmentation.
Light Pink: Powdery pink, contains shimmer as well.It is lighter than 8th one,would suit medium to fair skin tones.Highly pigmented.
Royal Blue: Nice pigmentation and very soft texture. It can be used for smokey looks. Can be worn as an eyeliner and on the lower lid to make eyes pop out.
Navy shade- It’s another great shade in the palette. I love dark shades which make your eye looks more glamorous.

What company claim: All our beautiful palettes come with 12 complimentary shades so you can pick and choose for a variety of looks. They’re a soft, blend able texture that glides on with ease. At just £4, you basically need them all.Now we know this palette looks a bit daunting. For a first glance, it might be. But it really needn’t be. Although it’s full of bright colours that will work fantastically to create a gorgeous bright look, it can also be used in a number of different ways. If you’ve tried any of our 3 – in – 1 contour liner you’ll know how great they are, but if you dab on a powder over the top of it. It creates a completely new liner style that is a softer way of wearing a bold colour. Karla Powell Head of Makeup Artistry suggests trying it with the Glitter ball palette to soften the harsh colours.

My Thoughts:

MUA Eye shadow palette Poptstaic is a show stopping collection of eye shadows that will make your eyes ‘pop’ and I couldn’t agree more as it is a very bright and colourful palette. There’s an assortment of colours from blues, green, yellow, purples and pinks. This palette is perfect to play with colours, reminds me of Holi festival…lol… The colours are vibrant, so can be worn on evening and night parties. Overall the colours are not completely full of glitter so won’t fall down your face or cheeks when wearing albeit some of them are powdery in texture so may fall down. I like this palette because it contains fine milled shimmers which are pretty decent without showing too much on the eyes. All colours are wearable and some are quite pigmented. You can use this palette for different eye looks. Stays all day long when used with a primer underneath.

Packaging is not bad at all. It is very nice, compact and sturdy enough to carry around while travelling. I really like the packaging and the fact there is a clear window to see the palette and colours in it .The eye shadow name, quantity and ingredients are listed on the back side of the palette. Double sided applicator is also provided but I have hardly used.

Texture is mixed. Some colours are pigmented, soft and creamy in texture. There are others that are quite dry and powdery in texture which can fall out while applying. The colours which are creamy in texture can be picked up easily with the brush. Very easy to blend and got lovely wearable colours. You can create or give multidimensional or glamorous looks with this palette by mixing lots of them together. It is a great quality product at an amazing price.
